Rom-com cute. Another good one from Ali Hazelwood.

I really enjoyed Jack + Elsie! The chemistry, the storyline, the no-nonsense. But then she kept bringing up the article this 30+ year old man wrote when he was 17?? And she kept doubting his feelings?? And everyone treated “hating theorists” like it was bigotry, not an academic opinion he clearly didn‘t feel (and said he didn‘t multiple times). A little frustrating. But I loved watching her gain confidence; these academia politics are VERY REAL!!
Every time I pick up one of her books I know I won‘t put it down until I‘ve read the whole thing. Her first person is so good you laugh and cry with the characters, the best way to tell via first person. This book is a great read I highly recommend. I can‘t wait to read more of her books.
Book 51 of 2023! Absolutely adorable, couldn‘t put it down…and funny as well! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
October wrap-up! I finished 11 books with no duds.
I do love Hazelwood‘s books. This is no exception. The couple are adorable, but Hazelwood is just helping to make science cool. She writes the politics of science very well.

Cute romance with a predictable HEA. I loved the characters, especially the character of Elsie as the pleaser worked so well. Liked that Jack was able to see through her shell. I even thought the supporting characters were awesome. 4⭐️
Moral of the story: find someone who loves and respects your rage.
Ali Hazelwood strikes again! She packed in so much and I still found myself laughing out loud. This is not just a romcom, Elsie is a stand-in for all the performances those of us who don‘t fall into a majority demographic have to put on, and the consequences if we don‘t fit someone else‘s standards.
Read for a good time and a smart, lighthearted walk through some serious topics.
Ali Hazwood's books are like a really rich chocolate cake-- you know what you're going to get and it's delicious when you're in the right mood for it. Yes the enemies to lovers, oblivious heroine who doesn't realize the gruff, giant of a man is in love with her is all the same, but dang if I don't still enjoy it every time. And the theoretical vs experimental physicist drama was quite interesting.
The last book was pretty heavy so I‘m moving on to light and fluffy. This one should last me until the plane lands ✈️ I think this is my #bookspin for this month, but I‘ll double check when I get home @TheAromaofBooks
This was so good!
- The Big Bang Theory prepared me for this! 😂
- I like Hazelwood.
- This is the first book of hers that made me LOL.
- An Aro-Ace character?! Hnnng, yes!!
- My favourite AH so far.
17 books read in August! Not too shabby! The tagged was my favorite.
1. The tagged book. I love all the books in this series!
2. I liked the female MC, Elsie. She‘s a physicist, so she‘s obviously intelligent, but she‘s also flawed, and just trying to find her way in her field and in her personal life. And there are some funny scenes!
If you want to play, consider yourself tagged! 🤗
I love Ali Hazelwood‘s books! I love how they deal with the modern woman‘s issues, in a STEM environment, with humor, romance, and care.
This one focused on an enemies-to-lovers trope, and though some conflict centered on misunderstandings (my least favorite conflict device), the “he has actually liked me this whole time?!?” thing was written well.
Probably will be my favorite of the month.
I‘m convinced that Ali Hazelwood can do no wrong when it comes to writing.
Her books and characters are relatable, charming, sexy, funny, witty all while integrating serious notes of emotion and what it‘s like to be a woman in male dominated fields. Love, Theoretically is all those things plus an enemies to lovers, empowering, embrace who you truly are plotline. Highly recommend! #LitsyLoveReads
My favorite read from last week.
Another cute Ali Hazelwood book that's the same formula as her other works, but it's so addicive and cute with the right amount of spice!
Trope list: 5⭐
✔️Enemies to lovers
Another hit from Hazelwood. I read all by this author because I love her humor and snappy dialogue. Also, how did I read 384 pages in one day?
Ali is one of my favorite authors, so I was so excited to read. I loved it, but not my favorite of her books. Instead of taking the enemies and misunderstanding approach of her last 2 books, this male protagonist was pretty clear with his feelings from the start. It was super cute how he helped her find herself while also falling in love with him. I couldn‘t put it down. Also way more spicy scenes than her other books if you‘re into that stuff.
Behind on posting but not reading. Me at Ali Hazelwood for bewitching me into reading another one of her books 😝 This was a soft pick for me. Millicent (Jack‘s grandmother) was 💯 the best character in this book. I loved her spunk, audacity, and love for Murder She Wrote. At this point I have come to accept that Hazelwood‘s writing is formulaic, but I enjoy her brand of humor and her commitment to ace/aro rep. The Olive/Adam cameo was nice too.
Ali Hazelwood did it again. Predictable? Sure. Did I guess the twist? Yes. Did I care? No. Let me assure you, as a college professor, that she nailed academia on the head with this one. 4/5⭐
But. One nit-pick. The protagonist adjuncts at a few Boston universities. And she CONSISTENTLY said "Boston University" to Bostonians. She would NEVER refer to it by its full name. As the mom of a rising senior, I can promise you that it is always "BU". ♥️?
I hated the lead until I didn‘t.
I enjoyed this one soooo much more than Love on the Brain and the little nudge back to The Love Hypothesis was very cute 🥰 🤩
BookTok made me buy this 🙈
Last week I ordered four lovely books that gave me this summer vacation vibe and this is one of them! I have read all of the previous Ali Hazelwood STEM books and I am truly excited to start with this one tonight!!

There is obviously a formula to AH‘s books, and this was completely predictable and spicy. I don‘t not like them 🤣🤣
Celebrating my birthday on an airplane with my new kindle, I‘m pretty happy right now
June 2023 books read!
I wanted to love this, for the most part I really enjoyed it. But it was honestly very repetitive throughout the entire book and could have been a good 100 pages shorter. 3⭐️ #botm
I listened to the audiobook of this book. I liked the book. I just didn't love the book like I loved The Love Hypothesis. I did enjoy seeing Olive and Adam in this book. I rated this book a 3 out of 5 stars.
⭐️⭐️⭐️ Typical Hazelwood, which can be taken as compliment or a jab. I liked it well enough. Maybe it‘s the fake dating trope? Maybe enemies to lovers? Maybe just pick one trope and roll with it? Idk, but she writes incredible banter, and is super funny, so those things were tolerable. I loved Elsie‘s progression. BUT WHY is the guy always some giant person? I‘m over that. A dude can be 5‘8” or 5‘10” or whatever and be hot.
I enjoyed this book a lot. Got pretty steamy at times. Liked that the main characters had difficulty communicating but they worked through it.
This was everything my heart needed after what was an unpleasant week. Do I have nitpicky things that I would change? Sure. But was this better self care than hiding under the covers with a box of chocolate? Most definitely.
Although I do agree with comments that the word 'big' in relation to Jack was mentioned too often 😆, this romance story is still entertaining, witty, charming and fun!
This author is so much fun to read. I love her female characters. They are always so freaking relatable! I don't even bother reading the back blurb when her books come out I just buy and inhale. #LittensLoveRomance
Swooon! Another binge read in the books (so to speak). Such a great romance. Highly recommended.
Blew through this one-so good! I love the science in this one, felt a little more real than in her past books. Funny and charming, her less than perfect characters jump off the page and endear you to love them. And you can‘t help but do so! #romantsy #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks #signed
