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.

It's at times like these where I wish I had 2nd book in the series. However, it seems as almost everyone wants read the book since movie came out. The ending, I’m still thinking about it and wondering what she write to him. Of course it had to end there. I heard about TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE for a while, even before the movie came out. It has been on mine to read list. Once the movie came out on Netflix, seemed that it was all people were talking about. I got curious about it, and I decided by reading the book first and seeing the movie after. I did not see movie yet, but I loved the book. You can’t help but love TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE. . I couldn’t stop turning the pages, JENNY HAN created a beautiful story about friendship, family and love. You will stay on edge of your seat until the end, and afterwards you be wondering if that’s how she ended the book. Of course she had leave you with a cliffhanger.

Lara Jean was lovely and one of my favorite characters in the book. I don’t think I be able to pick one favorite, I loved so many, Lara Jean, Margot, Kitty, Peter, Josh. You can see that picking favorite will be impossible. With Lara Jean, you couldn’t help but connect with her. I can’t even imagine what I would do if love letters that were supposed be a secret got sent out. I would most likely even avoid school. I think that she handled it better than I would have. All through the book I kept wondering, Who could sent those letters and why? I was in shock when it was relieved who it was, the last suspected person. Even I did not see that coming. I did enjoy reading the letters that she send to the guys that she liked. I could tell that she was a bit conflicted about Josh at first, even try to deny her feelings that seemed to surface back. I wonder what could have happened if she didn’t deny them.

I liked Peter from the start, I loved his sense of humor. I thought it was interesting how he agreed to be her fake boyfriend. I wondered if he liked her, maybe that’s why he agreed her. Not long into book you could see the connection between two of them. I could tell that Peter liked her long before he told her. Lara Jean was showing the symptoms of it before too. The way that she kept defending him when someone said that he wasn’t good for her, that she would end up getting hurt. The way that she acted when she was around him. Lara Jean seemed happy when she was with him. Josh, I know he cared about her but at same time, it happened because of letter. I am a bit curious how deep his feelings for Lara Jean. Considering how he felt about Margot not that long ago. I felt like he moved on from her, a bit too fast. I feel like there is more romantic connection between Lara Jean and Peter, then there is between Lara Jean and Josh. I am rooting for her and Peter.

I loved the relationship between the siblings, not all siblings are close like they are. It made me smile. I loved how Peter was with Kitty, that was one of the things that made me adore him, and I’m sure that’s why she liked him. Now that I have read the book, I can’t wait to see how the movie turned out. I also can’t wait to see what’s in store next for Lara Jean, Peter, Josh, Kitty, Margot next.
