To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han @jennyhan @simonschuster @SimonSchusterCA

Genre: YA, Chick Lit

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

What It’s About..

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..

They aren’t love letters that someone else wrote for me; I don’t have any of those. These are ones I’ve written. There’s one for every boy I’ve ever loved—five in all

OMG. Talk about book hangover! I actually stayed up till 6am just cause I wanted to see how everything ends!! Totally worth the lack of sleep.

I have to say, I am pleasantly surprised by this one! You know the saying “never judge a book by its cover”? Well..I totally overlooked this one when it first came out.  I thought the cover was a little too girly for my taste.  But thanks to the  Netflix trailer, I knew I would enjoy the book.

I’ve been on this chick lit binge and devoured every moment of it. There were parts that caught me by surprise, cause it was not the way I thought it would go.

The Characters..

MY FAVES

Kitty

-Outspoken & wise beyond her years.  She reminds me a little of myself: will stop at nothing to get what she wants (in a good way of course).

Kavinsky aka Peter K

-He may have been the popular, “Handsome Boy”, but he was so not what I was expecting.  I found myself rooting for him.

ONES I DIDN’T CARE FOR

Josh

-Sure, he was the nice guy and literally the guy next door.  But for some reason he annoyed me.

Lara Jean

-I had a love/hate for her.  She was cute and quirky, but it bothered me how afraid she was to speak her mind.

THE BEOTCH

Genevieve

-As despicable the as the villain is with every story.  I also happen to find myself loving the bitchiest characters.  Why? Because they are always, in my opinion, the ones who are well-written.

I definitely wanted to punch her!

Have you read it? Did you have a favourite character?? Who’s excited for the film?

  1. Hi Gigi, I haven’t read this book but the fact you liked the villainess doesn’t surprise me. A lot of the time the villain is the most complex character in a story, it makes them interesting and gives them impetus to do the “evil” they do. I had a chat with some Star Wars fans about this very subject due to Darth Vader being such an iconic villain.
    Hope you and your folks are well, and thanks for the view and like the other day!

      1. Yes there was a discussion comparing Kylo with Vader and how “thin” Kylo’s character seemed compared to his granddad. And I still see that mask descending and the cut-outs of the eyes now and then when I shut my eyes. A great bit of cinema.

    1. 😂 I’m such sheeple! But I ended up loving it. It was perfect timing, cause I’m a thriller reader and the last 2, put me in a thriller slump. So I needed something light and fun. Hope you enjoy it! You’ll have to let me know what you think!!

      1. I hope so too! So far the narration is the same as the first..so brownie points there. It literally picks up from where we left off. Can’t wait to compare thoughts!!
