“To all the boys I’ve loved before” was hilarious. There’s no other way to describe it. Just flat out funny.
Lara Jean has a secret box with love letters to the boys she’s been in love with. They’re entirely confidential, and is more like a diary than something that should ever be mailed to the boys.
And then they’re mailed out. Her innermost personal feelings about her sister’s boyfriend, the school’s hottest guy, and some others boys.
At first, it took a bit time to get used to the narrative voice, because it sounded so awkward in my head. But after just a few chapters, I was fully pulled into the drama. And, oh god, my stomach was hurting from the moment Lara Jean first is alerted to the fact that the boys have received her love letters.
It was refreshing, light and absolutely mortifying for the poor girl. I really enjoyed watching her suffer in that way. Because she always seemed to fix it in the most unexpected ways.
Other than the main plot itself, I also enjoyed watching as Lara Jean matured. After having depended on her sister for so long, it was nice to see how this catastrophe changed her—and her life—for the better.
I was totally rooting for her to come up on top.
With that said, I don’t know if I want to read the sequel. I really enjoyed the OTP in this book, and it will probably break my heart to watch as the Author tampers with my—and the character’s—poor feels.
I do recommend this book for anyone looking for a light read with some teen romance.
I devoured this book in one day, and it didn’t feel like it dragged on at any point.
