Hey guys! I am back with another book review! I recently finished the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy by Jenny Han. I know I’m a little late to the game with these books (the movie is now almost a year old lol) but it’s never too late for a good book. If you were like me and haven’t read these books yet, I highly recommend you go out and read them!
The books revolve around a girl named Lara Jean. She has written all these letters to boys she has had a crush on, and one day they mysteriously get sent out. The first book is about her dealing with the letters getting sent out, which results in a fake relationship with one of the boys, Peter K. *Spoilers* the next two novels are about Lara Jean’s relationship with Peter K.
Now I am a such for cheesy YA rom-com type novels. I have read my fair share of Sarah Dessen novels. These types of novels are nice for an easy read, and this trilogy did not disappoint in the romantic tribulations department. I personally ship Lara Jean and Peter K. But what I also enjoy is that Han spends the next two novels actually developing their relationship. Often times YA romances can be pretty flat, and when once the couple gets together. Han goes beyond this stage, which I found refreshing.
Han also did an amazing job of balancing the romantic scenes with other aspects. Lara Jean’s relationship with her sisters are an important part of the novel, and one that I really enjoyed. It helps show that romantic love is not the only type of love, but that the bond between siblings is just as, if not more, important.
I like Han’s writing style as well. It’s simple and easy to read. I like she created a very likable character with Lara Jean. Which I find funny because I personally hated the main character in Han’s other series, The Summer I Turned Pretty. If you were like me and didn’t like that series, this one is much different.
Overall I really enjoyed these novels. Now I’m going to watch the movie! Let me know in the comments what you are currently reading! I just started Outlander, so don’t expect any new book reviews for awhile haha!
