Review – To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before


Title: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before

Author: Jenny Han

4 stars

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed.

But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister’s ex-boyfriend, Josh.

As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.

This has been long overdue. Not the review, I mean I just finished the book last week or something, but reading the book has been way overdue and I don’t know why it has taken me this long to do so.

I will say that I sometimes have trouble reading a book if I have already seen the movie adaptation (which is why it’s always better to read the book first) because I know what will happen and then the book is already predictable because I know the story. BUT, I will say that the story did differ from the movie so I was surprised by some things that I didn’t know would happen.

The story was cute and romantic and gave you warm fuzzy feelings in the pit of your stomach.

I wasn’t completely hooked to be honest. It’s probably one of the most realistic YA novels I’ve read in terms of depicting the life of the average teenager, because a lot of the time I was kinda bored. There was a lot of nothing happening unless you count the endless baking (same goes for the last two books).

But despite the boredom I will say I am a Peter Kavinsky fan!

And that’s pretty much it.
I honestly don’t have all that much to say about this book.

All in all I enjoyed To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and as of this point I have finished the trilogy and will get the reviews of the remaining two books up “soon”.

Do you usually read the book first or watch the movie adaptation?
