Book Review: Frankly in Love

Book Review: Frankly in Love
Nov 07, 2019 by Erin Yun

Now that the weather in New York has finally reached that perfectly crisp temperature, I’ve been craving snug evenings spent buried under a massive pile of blankets, with a good book in my hands, and a cup of tea to the side. And what goes better with a cozy night like that then a little romance? With that in mind, I picked up David Yoon’s debut novel, Frankly in Love. I’ve been hearing tons of buzz about this book lately, and what with the Korean representation and rave reviews, I had a feeling that I, too, would be . . . well . . . frankly in love with it. However, while I was expecting a fluffy love story, this book delved into deeper issues, balancing family matters with struggles of navigating identity. If you’re anything like me, Frankly in Love will bounce you back and forth between laughter and tears.

So, I don’t know about y’all, but I love horror movies. I love the quality ones, of course, like The Babadook, Train to Busan, and Halloween. But even more than those, I love love loooooove bad horror movies. I’ve watched Zombeavers about five times now, and The Gingerdead Man is next up in the queue. All that to say, I was captivated by Jeff Zentner's Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee from the start.

You know how some people celebrate Christmas for the whole month of December? Well, I’m like that, too, except with Halloween. (And okay, Christmas too—I really like holidays, okay?) That means that ever since October arrived, I’ve been knee-high in spooky reads. The Shining, a collection of YA Poe retellings, Coraline—give me more, please! Of course, sometimes I’m feeling the autumnal vibes but don’t want to have recurring nightmares. For times like those, I crave spooky books that aren’t too spooky, and I recently finished a perfect example of such a balancing act—The House in Poplar Wood by K. E. Ormsbee (also known as Kathryn Ormsbee).
