Cheers to everyone who made it to Friday – woo hoo! May everyone have an amazing holiday, and I hope snow doesn’t affect anyone’s travels too much.

If you’re looking for a fun, light read in the rom-com genre, I highly recommend all of Ali Hazelwood books. Her latest, Love on the Brain, is laugh out loud funny. The heroine is a career-focused neuroscientist (with purple hair, of course), who has to work with an old enemy from grad school when she is asked by NASA to lead a neuroengineering project. (She’s also a staunch feminist who has a secret Twitter account named “What would Marie Curie do?,” where she answers questions from STEM women who are facing discrimination and general patriarchal garbage.)

Spoiler alert: the old grad school enemy is tall and handsome… and there may have been some misunderstandings.

There’s lots of snappy dialogue, feminism, neuroscience, and a bit of espionage also — it was really fun and I highly recommend. (One of my favorites of the year, for sure.)

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