To all the boys I’ve loved before

I just took part in the Readathon held by Lily and Norika and this is the first book I read in those many, yet so few hours.

‘If love is like a possession, these letters were my exorcism.’

RATING: FABULOUS 5 STARS

PLOT:

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 VIEWS:

I loved the book. It was truly great. Lara Jean’s character was extremely relatable. Although I found the writing quite kiddish at first, as the book progressed the writing style did not seem too bad. I loved the concept of the book and the fact that it was different from all others.

I loved the relationship among the three Song sisters, and how despite everything, they were always there for each other. I have seen dysfunctional families, and theirs despite being one fared off pretty well.

And Peter, Oh, my God, do I love him. So hot and charismatic, he stole my heart. I want a personal version of Peter Kavinsky too. Genevieve is like a typical mean girl, whom I hate too and I cannot imagine how Peter spent 4 years with her.

PLOT:

Signed, sealed, delivered…
While spacing out in chemistry class, Lily scribbles some of her favorite song lyrics onto her desk. The next day, she finds that someone has continued the lyrics on the desk and added a message to her. Intrigue!
Soon, Lily and her anonymous pen pal are exchanging full-on letters—sharing secrets, recommending bands, and opening up to each other. Lily realizes she’s kind of falling for this letter writer. Only, who is he? As Lily attempts to unravel the mystery and juggle school, friends, crushes, and her crazy family, she discovers that matters of the heart can’t always be spelled out…

MY VIEWS:

Another heartwarming YA romance novel by Kasie West. I loved the book, though not as much as I loved ‘The Distance Between Us’. It was all that I expected it to be, though a little predictable. It was obvious at time what was going to happen next-like who the note writer was- but the beautiful writing kept me turning the page.

It was a light read, especially good for bright sunny days. The book made me smile and laugh quite a few times. Though I felt that Lily was a strong character, I think that there should have been more depth to her friend, Isabel.

I also loved the fact that the character’s flaws have been shown. I thought they were expressed very well. I also loved how the author showed family problems and highlighted the theme, appearance versus reality- that what we see may just be an act, that problems may not appear on the surface but may be great depth within.
