It may be juvenile, full of tropes, and the MC might be a little annoying, but this story sucked me in and when I turned the last page I immediately wanted more. Lara Jean and her sisters lost their mom at a young age. It‘s just them and their dad, who is doing his best raising 3 girls. This is a YA romance, coming of age, sisterhood drama with lots of heart. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

This was my #doublespin for April! @TheAromaofBooks

Elizabeth2 I told my almost 17 year old daughter she might like this book. When I described it to her, she said “oh there‘s a Netflix movie like that.” I told her the movie was based on the book. She said, “yeah, I wasn‘t interested in the movie.” And walked away. 😆 Her tastes run more toward anime and the occasional graphic novel, but I know she likes the romance angle in what she watches. 🤷‍♀️ She‘s not a reader, but a mom can try….

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! I still haven't read this one, although it's been on my list for a while!! 5mo

I loved the movie of this for a few years now, so naturally, I was looking forward to the book. But I was shockingly disappointed. Instead of having a strong and fun relationship with her best friend, the friend is always getting drunk and going to parties and bossing around Lara Jean. And no, it‘s not one a plot point of the book. And Peter is such a stereotypical jock it was hard to read a lot of us. And I‘m sorry, but one cannot go through ⬇️

Zoe-h ⬆️ a intense personal argument with their boyfriend, fake or real, for a full page and then, while the fight‘s still going, “be all oooh you‘re so cute when you‘re at the beck and call of your ex”. 2.75⭐️ 7mo

Unfortunately, this book was not for me. I knew I was in trouble the moment we hit the fake dating trope. Add to that that much of the plot relies on people not telling each other things, a weird love triangle with flat boys, and reliance on an implausible plot device to have the titular letters exist and disperse. The cherry on top was the lack of an actual ending. (I did like the relationships of the sisters for the most part.)

4 STARS - This popular 1st book in the Teen series was an enjoyable listen. I liked the familial bonds, the romance trope and its easy-going vibe. Wasn't fond of how the narrator pronounced Lara Jean's name (Large-een) but even though I don't plan to con't with this series, it was a good read.

Two of Colleen Hoover books followed by The Hate you Give was getting a little intense for me so I decided to put my tbr on hold and re-read one of my favorites, something light hearted and adorable the first book of the To all the Boys Trilogy.🍻📚

My daughter recently watched this on Netflix so I thought I‘d read it first. This is the story of Lara Jean who has written a letter to all the boys she‘s had crushes on but never sent the letters out. One day they are sent out and all her secrets are revealed.
This book had many levels but I especially liked it when the author focused on the sisters relationship. I was slightly disappointed with the ending as it made me want for more.

mom2bugnbee You're in luck - there are two more! And they have all been made or will be made into Netflix movies. They are among my daughter's faves - both the books & the movies. 14mo

So freaking cute!!!

Imagine (secretly) writing love letters to all your crushes and then wake up one day and they‘ve all been delivered!? Whoa!

This took me right back to high school.

My first completed book for the #july4thweekendreadathon and I have logged seven hours total so far!!

Dear Litsy,

Help! I need a YA book that fits the prompt #artsyfartsy to fit a #BBRC prompt. Google helpfully came up with this, which my library actually had on audio... but I just can‘t. Full on teen romance - 6 more hours of it - not for me. Any suggestions?

As far as this one goes, it‘s very sweet, very young, kind of predictable and I just don‘t care, old grinch that I am.

TIA

julesG Found a page with some books. Maybe there's one you like and can get through your library: https://skokielibrary.info/lists/822/life-is-a-canvas-teen-artists-in-ya-literat... 1y

Lara Jean finds herself in a fake relationship after her love letters get mailed.

When I read the book originally, I thought it to be quite good, reading/listening again it just didn‘t appeal to me too much. I also have a problem with the father relying heavily on his older daughters to take care of the household responsibilities and younger siblings. He has no real responsibility over the girls or the house.

Maya and I are reading this series together now that all 3 movies are on Netflix. She flew through it while we were at the beach, and loved it. It‘s a really cute and adorable story, and pure YA contemporary fluff. Apparently that‘s what I need right now, because I liked it a lot more than I thought I would!

Both M and I have already started the 2nd book, which she snuck in her backpack so I‘m book less until she comes home from school. 😂

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I absolutely loved this series & i would reread it countless of times if my time allowed me. I loved how innocent & pure the romance was in these books. It was an easy read to! Made me feel all giddy like I was back in high school. Also these books gave me a new found hobby of baking! Never would of known I‘d enjoy it so much but Laura Jean really inspired me. Not to mention the movie adaptions are also my favorites too.

This weekend I was on a baking spree and participated in the #NailedItAtHome baking kit experience where we attempted to make Lara Jean's hat box with all her love letters! Jenny Han and the actresses who played Lara Jean and Kitty were on the live zoom, and it was hosted by Jacques Torres! It was so fun. My bow and lid did not come out how I'd hoped, but pretty proud of the rest! I can't wait to find time to watch the new movie!

Honestly, I only started to read this because I felt I owed it to my bank account and the movie is adorable. That being said, the fact that I had the movie scenes to hold on to is what helped me make it through this book. I don‘t think I would‘ve finished it otherwise. Now I just have to figure out if I owe it to my bank account to finish the rest of the trilogy.

Did a reread of this series this week while I‘m on vacation. It felt like a good light buffer between The Count of Monte Cristo and A Tale of Two Cities.

I‘ve got such a soft spot for a good romance. Anyone have any recommendations for a swoony contemporary romance read? I feel like kicking the year off with a little love 💕

This book was super cute and easy to read. I really enjoyed the family dynamics and relationships. Life has been super busy so I've been leaning towards light reads. I put all three books on the #bookspin card so I'll probably continue with the series 😊

So excited to be working on my December #BookSpinBingo 😁 This book was #10 on my list.

I got the box set, To all the boys I've loved before, for pretty cheap off bookoutlet.ca 😍 I was doing some Christmas shopping and needed $45 for free shipping 🤷‍♀️ Has anyone read this series?

I also got Handsome Johnny by Lee Server, cursed by Frank Miller and Thomas Wheeler and 2 gifts ❤ Happy day all around 💕 #catsoflitsy

Prairiegirl_reading This is a rare case where I thought the movie was better. The first book is the best one in my opinion. They are cute though. 2y

Lara Jean‘s internal monologue feels real. So. many other YA novels I‘ve read sound like an adult simply parodying the way they think teenagers speak “nowadays”, which is patronising to say the least. To All The Boys I‘ve Loved Before, however, hits the mark – a bullseye! Ah, to be young and in love… Full review here: https://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/to-all-the-boys-ive-loved-before-jenny-han/

I watched the Netflix movie (and sequel) and thought it was so cute. The three book set was on Book Outlet recently, so snagged them for cheap. The book is just as cute as the movie. Moving on to other titles to work on my August bookspinbingo, but looking forward to #2 and #3!

I didn't love this book but I I do want to continue on with the series just to see what happens. It had good moments where I was like this isn't bad, I'm enjoying it and then other moments where I was eye-rolling and over it. 🙄😂

I've had this book on my TBR shelf for a while and thanks to #AudibleEscape I can officially mark this one as read. ✔

Prairiegirl_reading This is the best book of the trilogy imo. The first movie is cute, watch that and call it a day. 😉 2y
BookKenz @Prairiegirl_reading Oh boy. I think I might just take your advice there. Especially since I see there is already a second movie too. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2y
Prairiegirl_reading @Kenziejo the second movie was hugely disappointing for me. I really wanted to love it but meh. 😕 2y

There has been so much hype around this book for so long that even though the synopsis didn‘t really speak to me I had to give it a shot. All in all this book was a pleasant surprise. Yes, the plot is far fetched, but I loved the characters and I couldn‘t help but want the best for them.

I also watched the movie and it was a really great adaptation and did the book justice which made me so very happy.

I can‘t with this book. I loved it and read it so fast. I checked it out of the library years ago when it was first published because I used to just grab books from the new shelf at the library. But I returned it without even trying to read it because I hadn‘t realized it was young adult fiction and it seemed cheesy... but after seeing the movie I had to read it. I‘m obsessed with Lara Jean‘s love story. This was an easy easy read and the writing

sarahlandis verrrryyyy young adult, but it was sweet and entertaining and Han even touched on deeper things rather than just high school drama. Can‘t wait to start the second and third novel haha

Pretty different from the movie. I found Margot insufferable, kavinsky is a lot more douchey, a lot of the cute, funny, quirkiness from the movie is lost, and the movie did a good job of making things more dramatic and romantic

I just listened to this on audio as it checked off one of my books for #Booked2020. It was the only book available on Libby for this prompt so I thought why not? While I am not much of a YA fan, and almost bailed, this turned out to be a really sweet, delightful book. Lara Jean, a high school student, writes love letters to the boys she‘s loved before, which she hides in a box. These letters get sent to the boys and the story begins.

Reggie Have you seen the movie on Netflix? I liked the first one. There‘s also a 2nd one but I haven‘t seen it. 2y

I loved the Netflix movie and decided to read this one. I needed something light in the midst of this crazy time and Lara Jean was the perfect choice. Should I keep going with the series?

“We smiled at each other and I feel that wonderful sensation of being known by someone.”

There is nothing like a good ole innocent chick flick type of book. Jenny Han shore knows how to write a book that feeds the soul. Sometimes I just need something that warms the heart. I loved the quirkiness of Lara Jean and old school charm boy of a John Hughes movie in that of Kaviniski. I can‘t wait to read the rest of the story and see how it unfolds!!! #LitsyLove
