Book Description: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them…all at once?

Sixteen-year-old Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she’s written. One for every boy she’s ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control.

Book Review ~ To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

*A little spoiler. You’ve been warned.*

Get ready to fall in love again with Jenny Han’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. This was a really fascinating read. It made me remember how it feels to not have an idea about love and then realizing it all of a sudden. I loooooooooove this book and can’t wait to read the next one.  - Ara @ My Book and My Coffee

Keeping love letters (she doesn’t intend to send) in a teal hatbox her mother gave her? That’s Lara Jean Song. It’s kind of amazing, what this teal hatbox is for, really, and you’ll find that out once you read it (or maybe you know it already if you’ve read this one). 

Personally, handwritten letters are underrated especially nowadays. I read about a girl who kept writing to her pen pal even with the technology today and I’ve always admired her for that. It keeps things personal and with effort. I was like that once, you know. I’ve handwritten love letters, diaries and more. I’ve kept them but there were circumstances were these also got me into trouble. 

Anyway ... let’s go back to Lara Jean. I told you, it made me remember things.

I soooo love this story. No dull moment in this story at all. It’s so nice to see Lara Jean’s character to actually explore and find out things for herself. That’s an important aspect of growing up, I believe. To learn on your own. To be responsible for your own actions and most of all, to know what’s true and what’s probably not. You cannot be perfect but that’s life. You decide what’s perfect for you and what’s not going to work out. 

I didn’t read any reviews or watch the Netflix film so I didn’t know that I will also like Peter Kavinsky’s character. At first I was annoyed but this character will grow on you -- you will love him, too. I like that he’s someone that you can belong with. Could it be? 

Josh. Joshy. One would think that he’s perfect for any Song girl but he only fits that way with the first one. Hint. Hint. I like his character but there are some lines that you don’t cross. Any time. For those of you who have read this book, you know what I mean. :)

Margot and Katherine are Lara Jean’s sisters. They are supportive in their own way. I love their bond. I also like that Katherine’s wise and mind you, way beyond her age. 

I wasn’t that much happy with the ending simply because I wanted moooooore. And I think that just shows how this book was so effective for me. It made me want more. I certainly want to know what happens next. Now. 

Great job. 

I gotta go buy the next book in this series. Bye.
