We’re so excited to announce this month’s Frolic Book Crush: Angelika Frankenstein Makes Her Match by Sally Thorne.
Each month, come along with us as we fall in love with a new book. Throughout the month, look out for exclusive content that’s sure to make you fall in love with this book as much as we did.
From USA Today bestselling author of The Hating Game Sally Thorne comes something a little unexpected… a historical rom-com that imagines Victor Frankenstein’s sheltered younger sister, and her attempts to create the perfect man.
For generations, every Frankenstein has found their true love and equal, unlocking lifetimes of blissful wedded adventure. Clever, pretty (and odd) Angelika Frankenstein has run out of suitors and fears she may become the exception to this family rule. When assisting in her brother Victor’s ground-breaking experiment to bring a reassembled man back to life, she realizes that having an agreeable gentleman convalescing in the guest suite might be a chance to let a man get to know the real her. For the first time, Angelika embarks upon a project that is all her own.
When her handsome scientific miracle sits up on the lab table, her hopes for an instant romantic connection are thrown into disarray. Her resurrected beau (named Will for the moment) has total amnesia and is solely focused on uncovering his true identity. Trying to ignore their heart-pounding chemistry, Angelika reluctantly joins the investigation into his past, hoping it will bring them closer. But when a second suitor emerges to aid their quest, Angelika wonders if she was too hasty inventing a solution. Perhaps fate is not something that can be influenced in a laboratory? Or is Will (or whatever his name is!) her dream man, tailored for her in every way? And can he survive what was done to him in the name of science, and love?
Filled with carriages, candlesticks, and corpses, Angelika Frankenstein Makes Her Match is the spooky-season reimagining of the well-known classic that reminds us to never judge a man by his cadaver!
First of all, it’s common knowledge that spooky season starts on September 1st and continues all the way through Halloween itself. So, naturally, we had to take advantage and choose a spooky rom com for this month. As huge fans of The Hating Game, this book was the natural choice! This book is pure wacky fun.
We also love a good scientist protagonist, no matter how unconventional their experiments may be! You go, Angelika. She’s smart and quirky and everything we need in a spooky novel like this one.
Finally, mystery fans, you’ll want to stick around to the end to learn the truth about her beau Will. Grab your copy today and dive in, just in time for fall.
