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.
“To belong to someone—I didn’t know it, but now that I think about, it seems like that’s all I’ve ever wanted. To really be somebody’s, and to have them be mine.”
I don’t often read contemporary romance but I was in the mood for a light fluffy read and I’d heard good things about this and while it’s not amazing it was the book I needed to get me out of my reading slump. The romance wasn’t quite as adorable as a was expecting it was still pretty dang cute so I’m still happy. Lara Jean is the best part of the book I adored her and I love how important Lara Jean’s sisters are to her. I was pleasantly surprised by how much her sisters are in the book I was expecting them to have only a small part but they had a big role.
The plot of this is’t the greatest but I wasn’t expecting much, but I was expecting the letters to have a bigger role, we didn’t even get to read all five letters but maybe the other letters are being saved for the second book. It was weird and a little unrealistic that Lara Jean didn’t care who sent the letters you think she would want to know who sent them considering all the drama they caused. It was very obvious to me who sent them and when it was revealed at the end it wasn’t as dramatic as it was supposed to be. I’m really not sure why there’s two more books in this series I liked this book is was cute and sweet but two more books seams like it’s stretching it, I still plan on reading them though mostly for the wonderfulness that is Lara Jean Song.
