Jenny Han’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

VOYA has the tendency to send me the third book in a trilogy to review. I don’t know how other reviewers handle it, but I don’t feel right reviewing a conclusion when I haven’t read the first two books! So, when I was sent Always & Forever, Lara Jean last spring, I had some catching up to do.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is a funny quick read about a 16 year old girl. Lara has written each of the boys she has “loved” a letter and kept it safely hidden for years. Until the day they get mailed to their recipients and much embarrassment and hilarity ensues. This is not a romance novel, even if it is about all the boys Lara has crushed on. It’s more about a girl finding her place in her family and finding herself. I loved Lara’s relationship with her older sister. I finished the book in one day and that is a rare feat for me in my old age. They’re making a movie of it which is sure to attract even more readers.
