I hope all is well.

It’s been a busy week, but here are my reading highlights:

Love, Theoretically by Ali Hazelwood
5 stars

I was excited when I heard Ali would have a new book out this summer, so much so that I didn’t read the synopsis before picking it up. Thankfully, it didn’t disappoint! I enjoyed the academic politics that centres the whole book. It was interesting and realistic – the tension between theoretical and experimental physicists, the relationship between mentors and mentees, and the economic challenges of pursuing an academic career. Of course, the relationship between Elsie and Jack was beautiful.  

Honey Girl by Morgan Rogers
2 stars

I didn’t like this book much. I am still trying to figure out if it was because of the writing, the reading (since it’s an audiobook) or the character Grace. A few pages in, I realised that what Grace greatly needed and should have was therapy. Seeing that she eventually did and was better for it was great.
