I took a break from the fifty million things I have to do today (organise promotion, write up promotion, edit my book, edit an essay, panic and panic some more) and saw a list of pirated links to books (not mine) on my dashboard and had to take a break and take deep breaths.
So look, here’s the…

Book: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
Author: Jenny Han
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. -Goodreads
I don’t know what happened. Do you know what happened? Because I don’t. 12% into this book and I was thinking this. book. is. terrible. Lara Jean narrative sounded like a 9 year old not a 16, almost 17, year old. Kitty, Lara Jean’s actual 9 year old sister who was a brat if I may add, sounded more mature than our main character. I wanted to finish this book with the sole purpose of seeing if it could possibly get any worse. Then something happened. I don’t know when or how, but I started to like this book. I caught myself smiling and laughing at witty remarks by Peter and shaking my head when Lara Jean couldn’t see what was right in front of her. By the end I found myself getting all teary eyed and thinking that this book was really sweet. While it is a bitty cheesy and the writing in the beginning was annoying I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed reading To All The Boys I Loved Before. It a cute, quick, summer read.
Rating: ★★★★ (4/5)

Normally I’m the friend that recommends books to everyone but my friend Meg recommended the Delirium trilogy to me a few years ago. Since then it’s become one of my all time favorite series and I’ve gotten to meet Lauren Oliver and have her sign my copies! Thanks to friendship I’ve discovered so many fantastic books!
