My Review:
I found out about To All the Boys I Loved Before through my cousin, She likes to read and I mean she really likes to read, she reads while she’s napping, riding a car, when she gets the free time, that’s why she got a really high grade on her eyes. (400+) anyway, she told me that To All The Boys I Loved Before series was really good also the Selection Series but I decided to not read the Selection Series yet. But I Will soon.

I love the book cover of this book though. It really catches your eyes, it’s quite engaging really, that’s
one of the factor I look in a book. I know that the most important part if the book is the story but
I really like to look at and admire pretty covers of books. it is really interesting and cute, I like the Idea of a person in the cover of the book so you can imagine what the main character looks like in the book.

I liked the book, A LOT. Mind you it’ll give you a fountain of feels once you read it. I literally kept on throwing my tablet on my bed every time Lara Jean does something cute and romantic with her pretend boyfriend or when Lara Jean started doubting her plan on having a pretend boyfriend. I kept smiling all through out the book, I didn’t even put the book down while I was reading it, I read the book till I fell asleep and I read the book when I wake up. I couldn’t bare to not read it because I had so many questions, so many things running through my mind.

I liked how Jenny Han made such a cute and quirky character, that’d be Lara Jean. It was really fun while it lasted and I was really glad on how the story turned out.
✅Dialogues: Were great, nicely written.
✅Characters: each had their own unique characteristics and their own charms that’d really attach you to them
✅Plot: Was actually quite good.
✅Flow of the Story: Really, Really good easy to follow, it wasn’t cluttered at all.
✅Detailing in the book: Was Great.

I liked this Quote though:

“No. I Like Tommy. It’s not that. It’s Scary when It’s real. When it’s not just thinking about a person, but, like, having a real live person in front of you, with, like, Expectations. And wants.”

Overall. This was really a good book. Would I read this book again? Probably, I’ll read this book when I want to get rid of a reading slump or when I’d like to refresh the memory of this book.

I Give this book:
