To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

SYNOPSIS

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.

MY THOUGHTS

This book was so sweet. I probably smiled the entire time. The premise of this story was so unusual and creative I was immediately drawn to this book, and I am sooo glad I read it.

The story focuses on dreamy-eyed Lara Jean and her sisters, Kitty and Margot. Lara Jean keeps a hat box of letters she wrote to the five boys she’s loved, and she never intended to send them. However, through outside circumstances, the letters get sent and what follows is a series of unpredictable events that are sure to take you on a trip with Lara jean that you won’t forget.

The characters are what makes this novel so great. Jenny Han has the ability to create characters with such depth that reading her work is effortless. Lara jean is a wonderful protagonist. I love the Song sisters. Kitty is the little sister everyone should want: quirky, creative, attentive and utterly herself. The family dynamic in this book was wonderful. I love how the sisters have each others’ backs and support one another and make life easier for their father.

Josh is very sweet. He’s the classic boy-next-door, and the story wouldn’t have been the same without him. He’s the character that you can’t help but love. And then there’s Peter. I love Peter. I love how I was introduced to a certain Peter at the beginning of the book, and then by the end, I was introduced to a whole different Peter. His character development was phenomenal.

The twists in this book were great; I didn’t see them coming, and I really enjoyed that.

This was such a lovely story. I’m going straight into the sequel! 🙂
