Cheers to everybody who made it to Friday – woo hoo! Might everybody have a tremendous vacation, and I hope snow doesn’t have an effect on anybody’s travels an excessive amount of.

When you’re on the lookout for a enjoyable, gentle learn within the rom-com style, I extremely suggest all of Ali Hazelwood books. Her newest, Love on the Brain, is chuckle out loud humorous. The heroine is a career-focused neuroscientist (with purple hair, in fact), who has to work with an outdated enemy from grad faculty when she is requested by NASA to guide a neuroengineering mission. (She’s additionally a staunch feminist who has a secret Twitter account named “What would Marie Curie do?,” the place she solutions questions from STEM ladies who’re going through discrimination and basic patriarchal rubbish.)

Spoiler alert: the outdated grad faculty enemy is tall and good-looking… and there could have been some misunderstandings.

There’s a number of snappy dialogue, feminism, neuroscience, and a little bit of espionage additionally — it was actually enjoyable and I extremely suggest. (Considered one of my favorites of the yr, for certain.)

The creator has a Ph.D. in neuroscience, and is outwardly a professor; she’s lived in Italy, Germany, Japan, and the U.S. She writes below a pseudonym.
