The Bride Test | Helen Hoang

4⭐️ This book is funny, sweet, and endearing. It is your typical romance novel with bends not normally seen. Esme speaks very little english, but doesn‘t let that stop her. Khai is on the autism spectrum, and while it may take a few lessons and finding new ways to talk to and about himself, he to is learning. Over all this was a fun romp. I cant wait till the next one.

sammisho I just finished this one and loved it! But what's the addiction? 2mo
LibrarianRyan @sammisho the main character kept saying he was addicted to her. He wasn‘t in love it was an addiction. 2mo
sammisho @LibrarianRyan ok yes! That makes sense! I thought maybe I missed something! 2mo
Cinfhen Almost missed this! Well done 2mo

I stayed up way too late to binge read this one last night. Not only are Hoang‘s romances lovely and steamy, but I love her #neurodiverse characters and their stories. You don‘t have to read Hoang‘s “Kiss Quotient” first, but some of the minor characters star in this one.

kgriffith Does the neurodiversity get named, or is it more coded? 2mo
BookInMyHands @kgriffith Autism is specifically named and talked about. The author is also Autistic. 2mo
MaggieCarr I'm reading it right now too. Love the hair cut scene. 2mo

I read this for the #ReadHarder Challenge for a book by/about someone who identifies as #neurodiverse. Hoang is on the autism spectrum, as is the main character Stella. I‘m not much of a romance reader, so I don‘t know how this compares to other books in the genre. But I‘m guessing romance as viewed by a person with autism is not super common. It was interesting to see dating and sexuality through that lens. Pretty graphic though.

"With a great many stories using neurodiverse characters as tokens, mostly inaccurate and offensive portrayals, [The Colour of Bee Larkham's Murder] is refreshing..."
