As I promised you guys, this is the review of : “ To all the boys I’ve loved before” written by Jenny Han.
Honestly I’ve never read a book written by Jenny Han, this was my first. And I actually loved it.
You know, sometimes you read a book and you feel like whatever’s written in it is FORCED. It’s like the author is forcing himself to write. And that type of writing is not fun to read nor convincing.
Jenny’s book is written in way where you keep on reading and hours pass by and you don’t even feel like it’s been that long. It’s written in a way where you live the story. You feel whatever the characters are feeling. And that, my friends, is the best type of books.
About the book: This is the first book, there’s another one. I’ll start reading it in a day or two.
Lara Jean is the lead character. She’s a teenager who’s going through what most teen girls go through, but in a twisted way. Her mom is dead; she lives with her dad and her two sister. An older one, Margot, and a younger one, Kitty. Throughout the book, we feel that Lara Jean is confused and drawn into many things, but we feel like she’s growing, evolving.
Margot is the Boss; she’s the ultimate sister who travels to Scotland to study. But she’s always taken care of her sisters and her dad. She’s put her family first and herself second. There’s a twist between Margot and Lara Jean, about a boy. But I won’t ruin the book.
Kitty is this little sister who’s fun but tough.
The story is believable and could happen; we meet the book’s characters in our daily life, which made me relate to it even more. The confusion and the situations drag you down into living the book alongside the characters.
I highly suggest you to read it, and I hope that the second book is as good as the first one.
Oh, and I almost forgot, there are cookies recipes at the end! It’s an awesome bonus no?!
Keep on reading!! And have a nice week !
