I very rarely give a perfect rating for a book. I’ve only got a select few which have earned that privilege from me, but this has definitely made its way onto that list. I started reading this book the other night when I couldn’t sleep and I finished it this afternoon and wow. It was so damn good!! I’ve heard so many people rave about this book but I didn’t really listen to them because it didn’t really sound all that amazing, but man it was!
This book is about a 17 year old girl, Lara Jean who writes letters “to all the boy’s she’s loved before”, except she doesn’t send them, she keeps them in a hat box. Then one day the box goes missing and all these boys are asking her about the letters they got from her. That’s all I will say about the book, but if you like YA contemporary romance-y type books, there’s no doubt you will love this.
You know a book is good when you can’t remember if it was a book or a movie. This is that book. Jenny Han’s writing was beautiful. It’s been a while since I’ve read a book that well written to be honest. She captures the teenage girl feels extremely well, and everything in this book was 100% relatable. Lara Jean’s feelings aren’t even spoken about, yet the way it is written it is as if you are the main character, experiencing everything she is feeling. Like when she describes being envious of something, “envy so thick and so black I felt like I was choking on it”, I got that exact feeling while reading it and just wow.
Usually when I come away from a book I liked I usually start to like it a little bit less, or think of things I actually didn’t like, but I honestly cannot find one fault with this book. It book was funny, sweet and perfectly portrays the life of a teenage girl (in my opinion). I absolutely cannot WAIT for PS I Still Love You to come out this month! In the meantime, I think I will be checking out more of Jenny Han’s work.
Hey Mum, my birthday is coming up… ;)

Favourite Quote: “ Love is scary: it changes; it can go away. That’s part of the risk” – How deep. “As anyone who’s ever scrapbooked knows, Rome wasn’t built in a day” – Equally as deep.
Maybe similar to but probably not because nothing can top this book… Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
