Such a good, easy read. It really brought me back to my high school days (I'm now in my 30's). I'd highly recommend this and the others in the series.

This book is a lighthearted, easy read that was genuinely funny. The main character is naive, but intelligent and curious. I felt like she was pretty relatable. I liked the dynamic between the sisters the most, as they seemed to be the most well written characters. However, the other characters felt bland and just fell flat for me. They seemed like props meant to serve the main character's story line; they didn't have much depth at all. I would've liked to have understood the two main male characters more; they were interesting on the surface but I don't think the author went far enough to explain their thoughts and emotions (considering how important they are to Lara Jean). Overall, this book was enjoyable, but I don't think it's amazing. I do recommend it if you want to read something that is generally uplifting and funny.

Such a good and easy read! Light love story and offered different details from the movie. I didn’t love Margo’s character as much as we’re taught to admire her in the movie. I loved how it ended leaving you wanting to read the next book, but not so ambiguous that the ending ended up poor. Great book! 4.8 rating! I recommend it if you need a light read! Can’t wait to read the others!

I watched the movie on Netflix before I even read the book and liked the movie more than the book but I still enjoyed reading To All the Boys I've Loved Before none the less. It was a very quick read for me and the characters and plot were very nicely written. Would read the whole trilogy and would recommend this book to any young reader.

This book was so fun! I loved the style of the writing and the story. I would be very unpleased with the end if I didn't know there were 2 more books. I'm excited to read the next one!

This book was surprisingly engaging and relatable for me. Lara Jean is such a lovable heroine and you can't help falling in love with her entire family and their geeky neighbor Josh. All about being a sister, a daughter, a friend and not being afraid to venture out into new experiences and relationships. Now I really want to watch the Netflix series.

"This is our life; there’s no use in asking what if. No one could ever give you the answers. I try, I really do, but it’s hard for me to accept this way of thinking. I’m always wondering about the what-ifs, about the road not taken."

“Margot would say she belongs to herself. Kitty would say she belongs to no one. And I guess I would say I belong to my sisters and my dad, but that won’t always be true. To belong to someone—I didn’t know it, but now that I think about, it seems like that’s all I’ve ever wanted. To really be somebody’s, and to have them be mine.”

“When someone's been gone a long time, at first you save up all the things you want to tell them. You try to keep track of everything in your head. But it's like trying to hold on to a fistful of sand: all the little bits slip out of your hands, and then you're just clutching air and grit. That's why you can't save it all up like that.

Because by the time you finally see each other, you're catching up only on the big things, because it's too much bother to tell about the little things. But the little things are what make up life.”

This book is about a junior in high school named Lara Jean. Lara Jean keeps love letters to all the boys that she has loved before as a way to get over them. Lara Jean writes these letters as a way to pour out all of her emotions and a way to get closure from them. She even addresses them, but never actually sends them. As fate would have it, one day all five love letters are mysteriously sent out, even the one to Josh, her sisters ex boyfriend. Soon after this event, Lara Jean's love life, as well as social life, goes from imaginary to spiraling out of control. Throughout the book, Lara Jean struggles to learn to express her true emotions and learn that it's okay to be a little selfish and take risks. In the end, Lara Jean finds herself and maybe even some love.

I would recommend this book to people who like romance. This book is about a girl who has wrote a letter to each boy she has ever loved. There's five letters in total. But when her letters mysteriously disappear and are sent to the guys, her life turns around. While trying to keep face with her sister's ex-boyfriend, she partners up with Peter Kevinsky. In the process of faking a relationship with him, they both fall in love. But Lara Jean will have to go through a hard time dealing with Genevieve, Peter's ex-girlfriend. Can their love survive the challenges? Find out for yourself :)

16 year old Lara Jean has been in love 5 times. Every time she wants to say good bye to a boy and stop loving them, she writes them love letters, seals them, addresses them, and then tucks them away in a hat box given to her my her late mother. The letters are her own little secret until one day in the spring when she returns homes to find them all sent. One by one she faces "all the boys she's loved before" only to find that who she thinks she's loved the most all along may not be the one for her, and the least expected boy from the group of 5, might just be the one.
