    A hugethank you to PenguinTeen for providing a free copy in exchange for an honest review! I received this book as part of a promotion. Y?all, how little did I know what I was getting myself into when I read this book. I knew it was going to be good, and I expected a cute, fluffy ...

    Penguin is promoting Frankly in Love very heavily. It appears they are banking on David Yoon becoming the next John Green. Maybe he will, we'll see. If you are a big John Green fan, and like his nerdy humor, precocious pretentiousness, fascination with girls as otherworldly creatures, ...

    I'm between 4 and 4.5 stars. Frankly in Love is a fascinating look at love, friendship, cultural identity, parent-child relationships, and prejudice. I had been waiting for this book to come out for a while, and David Yoon certainly didn't disappoint me! Frank Li is smart and f...

    3.5 stars I really enjoyed Frank's voice in this one, I found him immediately relatable and I love how the novel tackled racism in one's own family. The fake dating trope was lots of fun, but it does turn quite serious towards the end of the book when it comes to family. I didn'...

    I received an ARC of this book for free from the publisher. Since I received an ARC, my quotes from the book are tentative. I give this book 4.5 stars which rounds up to 5. This book was so good! It?s a romance but it goes so much deeper than just that. At the core, it?s a s...

    the buzz has been loud for this one and I was keen to try it. It didn't turn out to be exactly a fluffy romcom like it's being pitched as. But I really liked the angles it took, the topics it dealt with, and how it mixed up absolute relatable teen nonsense and angst, with tackling big ...

    Full Review on The Candid Cover 2.5 Stars Frankly in Love by David Yoon is a book I had been highly anticipating as I have seen it hyped up everywhere. Unfortunately, much of the book is stereotypical and underdeveloped, and there is no plot, just drama. I found that the main cha...

    Tbh, this book was just okay. While I did enjoy the nuanced look at his family and his life, it took me quite a long time to actually connect to Frank as a character. I didn't really like the way his inner-monologue was written or the writing style in general, so I struggled to connect...

    Frankly, Frank Li is a bit of a dick. We all know this book is going to be a bestseller. The cover is great, the story is promising, the hype is real. But if I had to describe this book in one word? Weird. So so weird. I'm obviously not Korean so I can't speak for the realistic p...
