I’m honestly so overwhelmed by just how much I enjoyed this book. High fantasy isn’t normally my jam, but from the very beginning of this, I was obsessed.

There are so many layers to this book, and I’m not sure if I can adequately talk about them in a review. A jumble of thoughts is running through my mind, like a tangle of wires. At its core, Frankly in Love is not a romance. It’s a story about family, set against the quirky … Continue reading Not a Romantic Comedy: Frankly in Love by David Yoon & Why I Cried
