Sally Thorne
Expected publication date: September 6, 2022
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! - from Goodreads



  1. I am also looking forward to this book. I was a bit of an outlier with Thorne's last book. I liked it better than The Hating Game. I have high hopes here.

  2. "whatever his name is" lol. This sounds fun!

  3. This sounds so fun and different! Really looking forward to it!

  4. Oh my, this looks amazing! (Will, for the moment LOL) What a genius way to reinvent this story (a bit!)

    1. Yes, it sounds like a cute take on the original!

  5. I love that the author has given Frankenstein a family. It's a great plot to work with.

  6. I've not had the best luck with Thorne's books but the premise for this one is too good to pass up!


I'm so glad you stopped by, and I would love to hear your thoughts! Comments are always greatly appreciated!
