I’m back again with yet another book review. I know that I am unintentionally turning this into a book blog, but at least you have consistent posts from me for a little bit right?!?
Let’s get back to the topic at hand. This book review in case you haven’t noticed is about the book To all the boys I’ve loved before by Jenny Han. Let’s just say that I have owned this book for a considerable amount of time and mostly bought it for the cover. This year in my “Let’s read all the books and empty out the bookshelves” challenge. I’ve finally broke down and decided to read this book and I’m so glad I did!
Lara Jean Song Covey is the middle girl of the three Song sisters who are being raised by their dad after her mother dies tragically when she was quite young. The story picks up as Lara Jean is about to enter her Junior Year in high school just as her older sister Margot is about to leave for college in Scotland. After Margot leaves Lara Jean’s life slowly begins to change from days spent with her sister’s ex-boyfriend and next door neighbor Josh to hanging out by herself. One day Lara Jean finds her hatbox with the letters she has written to the boys she loved is gone and the letters have been mailed. Lara Jean is shocked and doesn’t know what to do especially in the face of Josh the last letter she wrote. Lara Jean tells Josh that she is in a relationship with Peter Kavinsky and shortly there after begins a fake relationship with him.
I will try and keep my promise to not spoil the ending of the book too much, but the very open ended ending to the book left me wanting more. As you can probably tell from my Currently Reading goodreads shelf I’ve started the second book in this trilogy P.S. I still love you. I love how fast this book went by or at least how fast it went by in my head. I really try and not think about how fast I’m reading in terms of days but it happens. I loved this YA romance read without being too much YA romance. I also loved the sass in this book and the personality of the Asian American family shined through. If you haven’t read this book yet I recommend that you should especially since there’s a Netflix special coming out soon.
Let me know if you have read this book and what you thought. If you have any recommendations for books I should read this year, let me know 🙂 I’ll also be participating in the Creating & Co June Relaxation Readathon, so they’ll be a ton more reviews coming soon! I’ll see you soon with another post.
