Blurb via Goodreads: 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.



     I've read Jenny Han's The Summer I Turned Pretty and loved it. I'm not sure what took me so long to read this book, especially after my sister reading it and loving it first. She is amazing at writing contemporary. 

      Sixteen-year-old Laura Jean Song has loved five boys in her whole life. She wrote each of them a letter, of course not sending it. She addressed it and locked it up in her teal hatbox that her mother gave her before passing away. She lives with her father and sisters, Margot and Kitty. Each of the sisters are incredibly close and different. One of the boys she loved before was Josh, the boy next door. Sweet, caring, geeky, incredibly cute Josh. Oh! He's also Margot's boyfriend.  Duh-Duh-Duh. Then, all the love letters are mailed out and down the hill we went. 

     Peter Kavinsky, another one of the boys, after receiving his letter confronts her. She brushes it off because it was oh so long ago, she didn't even remember what she wrote. Ha. Then, Josh also wants to know what's up? So she gets the grand idea to tell him "oh it doesn't matter I've got a boyfriend!" Oh Laura Jean! The whole grand thing about the idea was she tells Josh she's dating Peter! Popular, arrogant, Peter. Not to mention he had been dating mean girl Genevieve (a.k.a Laura's ex BFF) for like ever. Peter goes along with it, his advantage was making Gen jealous anyways. 

     This book is sooooo addicting! My favorite part was the family aspect. My sister and I are super close so I connected easily with Laura. I got to the ending and read the last page and I was like Wait that's the end!?!? Thank goodness there is a sequel with an equally beautiful cover! If you haven't read this book, DO SO NOW. It will be perfect timing for the release hehe. 

Xo, Mal!
