i think this book underplayed her ability at first bc i thought she wasn’t on top of her tasks when quite the opposite was the truth. Like, both are great, and you can’t really have a non-supportive friendship, but you don’t HAVE to be friends with someone to support them.

That leads me to my next point which is the focus on women in stem and how they are often not trusted and how their ideas are ignored. Furthermore, the way AFF wrote the succession of the events is very smooth and it really helps with the reading after the rough beginning (at least for me). Oh, so he’s rich, handsome, and everyone is a “little in love with him,” … whatever guy (I’m rolling my eyes). I loved Alexene’s approach to highlighting the favouritism and sexism that women face in this industry which is so important we speak about. I enjoyed how the book talked about how getting into the best school is NOT ALL that matters, and you can be really smart while choosing something else, because it is YOUR education no one else's.

With an adorable, opposites-attract romance at its center and lines that beg to be read aloud, My Mechanical Romance is swoonworthy perfection. I love how all the side characters have their own personality and share an important part in the story. Is it super spicy (I hope not since u said it was wholesome but yk lol) and is there lgbtq characters? Many thanks to Netgalley, Holiday House and Alexene Farol Follmuth aka Olivie Blake for the arc in exchange of an honest review!

Bel changed Teo and his habbit of always being a fixer and she loved herself the most when she was with Teo—which was both a good thing and a bad thing. While she was yelling at me her cheeks were flushed and her eyes were wide and she was like, actually alive, which is the version of her I find way more interesting than this one. I keep thinking how dull everything’s felt over the last month without her, how empty it was compared to all the months before it, and I don’t even care how far away Massachusetts is.Alexene has penned a number of adult SFF projects under the name Olivie Blake, including the webtoon Clara and the Devil and the BookTok-viral The Atlas Six. And I think what impresses me the most is how robotics or engineering is not my type of nerd and my least favorite field in STEM but there was not one time where I feel bored or clueless. Like there’s some sort of unstoppable tide of existence and you’re part of it, even for just a second. I really enjoyed the fact that this book touched on misogyny and how girls deal with this on a daily basis starting from school age.

When Bel’s talent for engineering leads her to join the robotics club at school, she meets Mateo Luna - captain of the football team and the robotics club. I actually saw myself a bit in her since we both kinda don't know what to do with our lives after school and feel pressured because people all around us already know to at least some degree what they plan to do. From the beginning I was cheering her on and hoping she would finally fight back and stand up for herself and when she did, I felt proud. it felt nice to see that I'm not alone with this fear and it gave me hope for my own future to see her figure hers out. I wish I could say it mattered even a little bit what his question was, but it really never crossed my mind to choose anything but him.Many, many thanks to Holiday House and NetGalley for providing me with this digital ARC in exchange for my honest thoughts. Oh, and if you’re a fan of The Atlas Six, this is the, um, non-penname—is this even a thing—of Olivie Blake. But this book also really addresses how our perceptions of others are often biased based on initial reactions to them and as we learn more about these characters our own perception of them changes. Its been actually a while since I have actually read YA romance but I am glad I gave this book a chance. Bel kind of accidentally got into the robotics world (she had knowledge in this field but never did anything with other people than her dad) and had a bit of a hard time fitting in even though she had amazing ideas.

Opposites attract in this battle-robot-building YA romance from the NYT best-selling author of The Atlas Six.After all, growing up is very much an exercise in figuring out what you want and then figuring out how to get it, even if (especially if) your initial attempt to get it didn’t pan out perfectly. it didn’t feel dragged out as much mainly because of how short the book was and how fast i flew through it. Like, it requires Teo to dismiss Bel either because of unexamined sexism or personal bullshit—and later she does decide she hasn’t been great to him either, but I didn’t really see any evidence of that? Opposites attract in the battle-robot-building YA romance about the vulnerability of first love, written by the TikTok sensation of The Atlas Six.
