To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han Book Review

The way it happens is a strange sort of serendipity. A slow motion train wreck. For something to go this colossally wrong, everything must intersect and collide at the exactright, or in this case, wrong, moment.”

Excerpt from:
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
by Jenny Han
Synopsis from Wiki

The story started when Lara Jean Covey writes letters to boys she feels an intense passion with before locking the letters away in her closet. One night, while hanging out with her little sister, Kitty, Lara Jean falls asleep, allowing Kitty to sneak into Lara Jean’s room and find her collection of letters and the next day, all letters were sent to the appropriate recipient. After that, Lara Jean was confronted by the boys she wrote letters to, leading her to the right man she did not expect to fall onto…

I’m the kind of reader that doesn’t read a lot of romance books since that’s not my preferred genre. I tend to lean more toward the tragedy than the sentimental, and my mind is particularly wired for the unexpected turns of events found in the beautiful world of novels. Therefore, if I want to smile and giggle like a teenager who is swooning over her crush in a crowded university corridor, reading this few romance books will be a revitalizing pastime for me. I’d heard a lot of excellent things about this novel, so I decided to read it as well.

Jenny Han is incredible! Every time I read one of her stories, I realize how young my heart is and how much I miss being a teenager. I can feel Lara Jean as much as I can remember penning love letters to someone I had a crush on when I was younger. This novel has the effect of transporting you back to your adolescence. Lara Jean, the novel’s primary character, is lovely and humorous, as is Peter Kavinsky, who is attractive and passionate.

The book was adapted into a film, but I was disappointed since the Lara Jean in the film was not the Lara Jean portrayed in the novel, and as a result, the exhilaration I had was diminished. Leaving aside the film, all I can say is that this novel is fantastic; it will have you giggling, laughing, and smiling all day. It gave me a good vibe, which is why I finished it in 1 1/2 days. I can’t get enough of it, and as a result, I finished its second and third installments.

This story is deserving of praise in the teen romance category, and I wholeheartedly suggest it to everyone.
