    I know this is one of the most hotly anticipated young adult books of the year, but I was honestly surprised by how much I loved it. The synopsis?a Korean-American teenager pretends to date a Korean-American girl his parents approve of so that he can secretly date the white girl that...

    This novel turned out to be so much more than a teen boy trying to figure out who he is and where he fits in. It's a story about friendship, family, sacrifice, priorities, racism, first love, and clash of cultures and economic hierarchies. The author has expertly dealt with tough issue...

    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 wanted to love this book SO BAD!!! The book trailer was adorable, I was promised cute fake dating. I got absolutely nothing that I wanted. There are a lot of things that frustrated me in Frankly In Love but the thing that made me one-star is the queer representation. One of Frank...

    I?m going to take a little more time to sort through all of my thoughts on this book. But, to sum things up, there were things I appreciated and things I found relatable, and there were things that weren?t so much my cup of tea. ...

    DNF at 22% So, this was one of my most anticipated books of fall. I kept putting it off because so many people were flailing about it. I finally started it and was very underwhelmed. I couldn?t settle into Frank?s inner monologue. There wasn?t a rhythm to it and it was mil...

    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...

    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...

    Thank you to Penguin NZ for providing me an ARC in exchange for a review; this does not affect my opinions of the book. This is not a YA romance that centers on the fake-dating trope, despite what the book trailer strongly implies. Rather, this is a story about identity, love, life...

    A delightful, well rounded, solid YA contemporary. Whilst I had a few issues with the pacing and some plot points, neither of those things stole from my enjoyment of this book. It brilliantly delved into teen life, family, identity, academic pressures, friendship and first love. I h...

    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...

    WOW I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH. It's as much about family and identity as it is about romance, so the plot felt so much more meaningful while also still maintaining a more or less lighthearted tone. It was funny and emotional and cute and heartfelt and so much more. This book wasn't a...
