The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I've talked on the podcast a few times about the number of books featuring grad students in the sciences, well here is one more and it is a delightful fake relationship trope between a grad student and a professor (but at Stanford he's not her direct advisor so it's fine.) I'm not sure if it was deliberate but I pictured a young Snape as the professor.
And then Erin in Instagram said,
"Apparently this book is re-packaged Rey/Ben Solo fan fiction and the dude is Adam Driver…so Young Snape isn’t too far off IMO"I had no idea but it does really work now that I know. It didn't feel shoehorned or suffer from the awkwardness of similar attempts in my opinion, so kudos to the author.
And I know this isn't the intent of #scienceseptember but it might be as close as I get this year.
I had a copy from the publisher through NetGalley and it comes out September 14, 2021.
