    There are certain lines that you do not cross, and coveting your beloved sister's ex-boyfriend is one of them. That's why this book made me gag a little.This book was purposeless. There was no ending. There was no romance. There was no character growth (and the main character was pretty dumb to begin with). I don't usually read contemporary YA novels, but when I do, I have certain expectations. I want sweetness, I want a character that matures, a...

    REREAD #2: February 2018So I absolutely frikkin ADORED this book when I first read it and proceeded to order book 2 immediately and then wait in agony for it to arrive. And then (remember: SO MUCH AGONY)...I proceeded to not read it. Because my ship. My ship. Anyway I went ahead and forgot the whole thing so that's great of me. I'm only now rereading it because I own the second two books and intend to read them soon.SOMEONE HOLD ME TO IT OMG or I...

    Well... That was disappointing.I absolutely could not stand Lara Jean's voice. She sounded like a child, even though she's 16 years old. STOP. She also cried any time something mildly unfortunate happened, and that got old real fast.I fail to see how any of the romance in this book was cute. There are two love interests, and both of them were horrible. I wasn't rooting for either of them at all.ALSO, the letters, which I thought would be a big pa...

    The Blurb: Lara Jean's love life goes from imaginary to out of control in this heartfelt novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Summer I Turned Pretty series.The Reality: Privileged, boring, 16-year-old girl (whose "voice" sounds closer to 12) feels sorry for herself because her sister's boyfriend doesn't want her. Until he does. Conclusion? There is none. Just a lot of faffing about, moronically pining, and an inconclusive non-e...

    I read this in a day. SO CUTE. Follows a girl called Lara Jean and through her life she has written letters to all the boys she has loved in her past, she keeps these letters safely tucked away from the word. However, one day she finds they are gone, her letters have been sent out, and everyone she has ever loved now knows. Including her older sisters ex-boyfriend. This story follows Lara Jean as she struggles with her relationship with her older...

    4.5/5Reread in August 2018This was so much cuter than I remember! Though I still have some of the problems with the book that I had the first time I read it (basically, it just annoyed me that she called her dad Daddy - though I did the same thing up until I was like 13? Why am I so judgmental?), it was a very enjoyable experience. It was even more enjoyable since it was a reread in preparation for watching the Netflix original! Though I haven't ...

    (3.75?) With the movie coming out soon, I decided to finally pick this book up. It's a YA contemporary with a romance so really it's not my usual genre but I've been a bit in a slump and needed a pick me up.This was perfect for it! Lara Jean has loved 5 boys in her life and has written to each of a them a love letter that she hid before moving on. One day they are all sent and she has to deal with the consequences.This was cute! It's all about fa...

    I was extremely shocked when I started reading this book. The intention was to read the first paragraph and if I didn’t feel like it I would pick another book. I couldn’t stop. I read the first sentence, the first paragraph, the first chapter and that's it, I was not going to stop, it just wasn’t an option anymore. There are few books that will rope you in so completely that you can't help but keep reading, this is definitely one of them. I...

    Straight out of a Taylor Swift song. Disclaimer: I do like Jenny Han, I love her covers, and I think she's a good writer. With all that being said, I have to comment on the characters. Please don't take this too seriously. Plot Rundown: Lara Jean is an invisible, Potterhead, Tumblrite, anime fan, non-partygoer, aka: Relatable teenager....So typical teen Lara Jean writes love letters which she never sends to her crushes, in order to get over th...

    “Do you know what it’s like to like someone so much you can’t stand it and know that they’ll never feel the same way?” To All The Boys I've Loved Before is as quirky and cute as its protagonist.After the first few pages, I wasn't sure I would finish this book. Everything seemed so picture perfect, so girlie. The way Lara Jean always said "Daddy", how Kitty outwitted any other living nine-year-old, etc. But I'm glad I kept reading, even...

    MOVIE REVIEW:I loved it!!! (Hello, Peter! 😍)It was just the goddamn cutest. They captured the feel of the book so perfectly and now I want to reread them again. I really hope there’s an adaptation for the other two books.Netflix did good. Highly recommend. Book review:This is a great book if you're in the mood for something light and fluffy or in my case, you're trying to get out of a slump. The voice and tone of the book is young, which doe...

    i wish could take the all of the warm fluffy feels of this book and fashion them into a cosy jumper to comfort my soul for the rest of my days. this was just too adorable for its own good. definitely cheesy, but its the kind of cheesy that makes your stomach flutter. how i wish my teenage years had been a YA contemporary novel - i would have died to have my own peter. oh, be still my swooning heart.

My original 3-star review can be found below.Let's kick off this review with a little music:Look at me, I'm Lara Jean!Lousy at figuring out mysteriesWon't drive a car unless I absolutely have toI can't!

    This book was so dramatic and childish that I just could not enjoy it. Lara Jean's plan was so foolish and the love triangle in this was so irritating that I found myself craving the scenes that focused on family rather than relationships. I gave this book some stars though because I listened to it on audiobook in two sittings and it was rather addicting, even though I hated Peter and the ending was a bit of a let-down. You might like this if you...

    let me warn you about peter kavinsky. he's the kind of boy who's sarcastic and sharp and witty and who is actually the tiniest cinnamon roll on the planet. also his smile is dangerously cute and you will swoon and you will want to have his babies but you will be in for a huge disappointment. because he is mine.

    4/5 Stars ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐“When someone's been gone a long time, at first you save up all the things you want to tell them. You try to keep track of everything in your head. But it's like trying to hold on to a fistful of sand: all the little bits slip out of your hands, and then you're just clutching air and grit.” I need to talk about something here. By the time I'm writing this review, I have read the entire trilogy. I finished it under thr...

    This book was actually super engaging. I loved the main character, her navigation through her crushes and past loves, and her family!Full review to come.Old Update:I love this title. Like, really love it. It's just, we all have boys we have loved before so it resonates. Plus it sounds like quite a beginning to an awesome letter to all your past loves about why it didn't quite work out. We can only hope for a very juicy/scandalous explanation.

    ****4 STARS****I will be honest and say that the first part of this book was getting on my nerves. I didn’t think I would end up liking it at all. I am glad I stuck with it because by the end I was feeling like I was back in high going through the same things Lara Jean was going through.It wasn’t the best written book by any means. I wouldn’t hold my breath for a Pulitzer, but it was well written to appeal to a younger audience. It was for ...

    3.5 StarsThey're turning this into a movie now! *Squeee*Lara Jean is a half Korean teenager who is the middle sister to older Margot and little Kitty. Their mother passed away nine years prior to the events in the novel. So basically it's Lara Jean and Margot who looks after the family. In the start of the book, Margot goes away to Scotland for college. And thus the responsibility of her Dad and little sister Kitty falls under Lara jean's shoulde...
