📚 Bookish Thoughts 📚 Frankly in love left me crushing on Nicola. I had high hopes for this debut novel. I was looking for another interracial love champion! I expected the story to go one way, and I do love a surprise, yet the many plot twists had me despising the male protagonist. I wanted a “stand up” kind of guy but instead got an indecisive heartbreaker. I believe the complexity of the character fell short. His decisions were not fully explained or thought out. In the end, I felt he was not a rebel. I am much more interested in hearing his sister’s story. The world-building was believable as I can see a lot of California in the descriptions and mannerisms. The racism depicted in this within the Asian community is something I believe desperately needed to be exposed. For that, I give thee a head nod. Don’t get me wrong; this was not an awful story. It was thoroughly entertaining. My borderline disappointment is my fault for having expectations based on another author, as well as my own experiences. I went looking for a book boyfriend but found a one night stand. If I were in the rating mood, I would give this novel something very average. It did not win my heart, but it also did not bore me. Romantics may tisk at this book, but contemporary readers would love it. 🤓 📚 Next on my reading list is Gods of Jade and Shadow! 📚 What are you reading? 💋 xoxo, Kat P.S.
