Review: To All the Boys I've Loved Before (#1) by Jenny Han

Title: To All the Boys I've Loved Before (#1)
Author: Jenny Han
Published by: Simon & Schuster BFYR
Released: 2014

Synopsis: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. 
But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister's ex-boyfriend, Josh. 
As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all. (Synopsis from Goodreads)

My Thoughts: This was adorable and I loved it! I love the fake dating trope. It's just everything that I want. This was such a fun read. It was addictive, cute, adorable. I want my own Peter Kavinsky.
I've been meaning to read this book for the longest time because I wanted to see the Netflix movie. I ended up watching the movie first and it was adorable. So, so adorable. I knew then that I needed more of Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky. I needed that cuteness in my life.
I flew through this book. I was addicted. In fact, I couldn't even stop after To All the Boys I've Loved Before and I just went and binged the whole series. It has been so long since I've done that, and it felt good.
I love Lara Jean and her family. It's just so cute. I will say that Margot can be kind of bossy. I get it that she kind of to grow up fast and be the mom to her sisters, but she can be a little hard. I love Kitty, she's fun. Lara Jean can be a little immature, but I understand her. In some ways, I can see parts of myself in her. She definitely has more style than I will ever have and her food is probably much better tasting, but I connect with her on some things.
Peter Kavinsky, I mean, come on! He is dreamy and I want one of him for my very own.
This whole book was just so cute. What else can I say but that it was adorable.
The Movie is very similar to the Book, which I appreciated. There are some differences of course. There is more of a slow burn in the book between Peter and Lara Jean. The characters are a little on the younger feeling side. Josh is more present in the book then he is in the movie. But a lot of it was pulled right from the Book.
I loved this so much. All the feelings, emotions. I mean, I got a little obsessed. Probably going to re-watch the movie a bunch more times and I'm not even sorry about it.

I'm Obsessed and Addicted
