Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control…
I heard great things about this series and I have been wanting to read them for quite a while now. This book is so freaking cute! I just love books with friendship in them and in this case it’s sisterhood which is even better! I loved the Song girls and their life!
This is one of the cutest books I’ve read, it has sisters, it has food, it has boyfriend drama and I identify myself a lot with Lara Jean. She is a very quiet and home-y person who likes to bake and do scrapbooks! She even knits! She is just everything I ever wanted in a friend! She is really nice to people and reserved but she can also be funny and sarcastic. She is warm hearted and I loved to see her as a sister. I guess I kinda saw in her my teenage years and to be honest, I tend to find 16-year-olds annoying in books but she wasn’t at all! In the beginning, I didn’t know if I was going to get used to her or not, but I did and I love her!
But my favorite character has to be Kitty! She is fantastic. She is only 9 but she is stubborn, clever, funny, she knows what she wants and she is not afraid of doing everything to get it. She is so precious! I love her! And the last of the sisters is Margot, that I did like but not as much. I understand her attitudes but I don’t agree with them. But I do think she is a good person and she had a harder life than her sisters and that made who she is today. But I loved seeing them as a trio! They have such a good relation! But they still think differently and don’t agree with everything. They love each other but nothing is perfect and I felt that it was really realistic!
Although this book has a love triangle, I actually really liked it! It’s a very messy and interesting one and I loved Peter Kavinsky! He is so much more than he shows to be popular… I like him much more than Josh. I did like Josh more in the beginning but by the end, I am not really sure.
I felt that this book was really realistic and just amazing to read and I am absolutely in love with the writing! I couldn’t stop reading it! I just want to read them all and hope for more and more! How come I only read this now?!
The only things that made this book not a 5 stars one were the fact that Lara Jean didn’t really care who sent the letters, I mean I would have been crazy to find out, but she just let it go… and a lot of the things, and I mean A LOT were very predictable and I kept wanting it to surprise me… I loved this book, and I will for sure re-read it a lot because it’s extremely cute, but there are some things I would have changed. I must be the last person reading this book but anyway, I would recommend it if you haven’t read them yet and you want something cute and easy to read for a perfect summer day!
