Undeniably, The Love Hypothesis has been a huge sensation. It was on the New York Times Best Sellers List for 39 weeks. Hazelwood’s success continues as her recent novel, Love on the Brain, was an instant bestseller and has been on the list for four consecutive weeks. Of course, fans hoped for this book to get an adaptation, and as of this week, it looks like their wishes have come true!
