`Free ↿ To All the Boys I've Loved Before ↸ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free

3.75 With the movie coming out soon, I decided to finally pick this book up It s a YA contemporary with a romance so really it s not my usual genre but I ve been a bit in a slump and needed a pick me up.This was perfect for it Lara Jean has loved 5 boys in her life and has written to each of a them a love letter that she hid before moving on One day they are all sent and she has to deal with the consequences.This was cute It s all about family, relationships and getting out of your comfort zone It wasn t cringy and yes there s a love triangle but I enjoyed the book.I m continuing the series UPDATE After reading the second book, I m reducing my rating to 3 stars I already felt like this could have been a standalone but I now 100% think it SHOULD have been. My letters are for when I don t want to be in love any They re for good bye Because after I write in my letter, I m not longer consumed by my all consuming loveMy letters set me freeLara Jean has had plenty of crushes Plenty.And she s fallen in and out of love with said crushes without them ever knowing Do you know what it s like to like someone so much you can t stand it and know that they ll never feel the same wayHer secret to getting over a crush is to write them a letter one detailing all the things that have caused her to fall out of love with them and then seal it away You d rather make up a fantasy version of somebody in your head than be with a real person. Each letter contains painfully embarrassing sentences from her younger self but at the same time, she s able to free herself from the crush forever or so she thought. Her secret letters hidden within her secret box were mailed secretly and now all of Lara Jean s secrets are not so secret any The letter are mailed and the drama is spreading One of the boys, Peter, has developed into one of the most popular guys in school The other is her sister s ex boyfriend.And Lara Jean is horrified Absolutely horrified High school is completely over.or is it It s fun to think of the what if Scary, but fun It s like, I thought this door was closed before, but here it is open just the tiniest crack What ifIn short YES This was the fluffy drama I never knew I wanted but desperately needed.Lara Jean was over the top in just the right ways, the drama was high but ultimately fun and believable.And this book was so relateable Who hasn t had a high school crush from afar And who hasn t daydreamed of the moment he or she falls for you I didn t fall for you, you tripped meLara Jean lives out that fantasy in hilarious high definition I also LOVED the strong family support So many teen books rely on a broken family to propel the main character into action and this is wonderfully not the case.Lara Jean lost her mother years ago, but her father and sisters are as close as possible They constantly rely on each other in times of trouble and they help each other out without a second thought.This is definitely one of my faves of the year so far I m only disappointed that it took me so long to get there It s not like in the movies It s better, because it s real. Blog Instagram Twitter REREAD 2 February 2018So I absolutely frikkin ADORED this book when I first read it and proceeded to order book 2 immediately and then wait in agony for it to arrive And then remember SO MUCH AGONY I proceeded to not read it Because my ship My ship Anyway I went ahead and forgot the whole thing so that s great of me I m only now rereading it because I own the second two books and intend to read them soon.SOMEONE HOLD ME TO IT OMG or I ll just keep rereading this one until my heart explodes.Reread Thoughts this book is so freaking cute and adorable and all the fOOD this is everything I need in a fluff contemporary lowkey hate Josh and Margot she is so callous and totally dismissive of Lara Jean s anxiety speaking of which I LOVE how Lara Jean s anxiety was represented I don t think she has a disorder, she s just a bit anxious but I love this in books It s so relatable to have lowkey anxiety in books as well 3 Kitty is absolutely fantastic and also Slytherin Lara Jean is like the Hufflepuff amongst all these Slytherins it is good Lara Jean s life is like is this aesthetic because that s what matters and that is such quality I can get behind get this girl onto Pinterest did I mention how hungry i am ALSO MY SHIP IS LARA AND PETER SO BADLY I CAN T STAND MYSELF PLS LET IT SAIL ARTHGGHAGH omg fan READ 1 Sept 2016I actually love this book FAR TOO MUCH And I am actually genuinely in a mood because it s over and I NEED THE SEQUEL AND I DON T HAVE THE SEQUEL I M SERIOUSLY UPSET I m supposed to be a Vulcan who doesn t even love contemporary that muchWHO AM I WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME I freaking loved this book and I m just over here sobbing composes self Okay okay let s talk about it SENSIBLY Omg where is my Vulcan soul, come back here you runaway And obviously I ll just write a list of all the things I NEED TO FLAIL OVER in this book It s delightfully diverse With Lara Jean being half Korean ergo biracial And IT HAS SISTERS Like I seriously love sister books because I have one or four of them myself So it s enormously relatable Plus Lara Jean sort of has this rift with her older sister when Margot goes off to schooland it just really hit home for me 3 I really really really related to aaaaall the sisterly dynamics in here This is so what it is to be sisters YA WANNA KILL EM AND HUG EM SIMULTANEOUSLY Did I mention Lara Jean is fantastic She is quiet and likes to be at home and she loves baking and she knits and scrapbooks and SHE IS HAPPY TO BE HER I JUST LOVE IT SO MUCH I COULD CRY Plus I generally find the quiet people in books tend to also be seriously boring Was Lara Jean boring HAHAAH NOPE She was so interesting and fun and witty and also scared and reserved and justshe felt like absolutely a real person Which is what I want to read about BLESS THESE CHARACTERS BLESS THIS BOOK Okay it is a love trianglebut it is a downright amazing one And it s complicated Because Lara Jean writes letters to boys she s loved as a let go thing But someone sends them and the boys get them and her sister s ex boyfriend, Josh, gets one In order to NOT lose face with Josh hello, he s her sister s Lara Jean pretends to get together with Peter Kavinsky Peter and Lara Jean are totally using each other and it s all a fake relationship at first But the basic gloriousness of it is A both boys are interesting and complex characters, and B I liked them both a lot at the beginning, and C it wasn t a case of Lara Jean being in love with two people IT WAS NEVER LIKE THAT So I loved this triangle Perfection I absolutely freakishly enormously LOVE PETER KAVINSKY I can t breath Someone send help No no send cookies And Josh started off cool but then eh No Also I kind of hated Margo, but whatever Kitty who is the 9yo sister was fantastic so that makes up for it ALSO DID WE TALK ABOUT THE AMOUNT OF FOOD IN HERE YET This is true foodie fiction I m not even kidding there is AT LEAST food mentioned in every chapter Like meals and outings and ice cream and baking SO SO MUCH BAKING I literally died several times NO I M NOT EVEN KIDDING I had to stop reading and go eat a banana muffin and sour cream because I was starving Curse this book omg ALL BOOKS SHOULD BE THIS FOODIE It fully gets an extra star for the food It does I m not even ashamed Also the character development I AM IN LOVE WITH IT I justI ship Lara Jean and Peter so bad someone hold me I m crying I m a wreck UGHGGH But I love how Lara Jean developed over the course of the book and I loved how the book wasn t completely angsty or anything It was just beautifully written and interesting and fully captivating I like it HAHAHAH JUST KIDDING I LOVE IT Excuse me, I need to go sit down, I ve fangirled too much and I don t know what to do with myself Also I want to eat Darn this book Lucas smiles You re so cute, he says, and I perk up again Then he says, Listen, can you not tell anybody though I mean, I m out, but I m not out yet You knwo what I mean Totally, I say, super confident For instance, my mom knows but my dad only kind of knows I haven t outright told him Got it I just let people believe what they please I don t feel like it s my responsibility to quantify myself for them I mean, you get what I m talking about As a biracial person, I m sure people are always asking you what race you are, right I haven t thought of it that way before, but yes yes yes Lucas just gets it Exactly It s like, why do you need to know Exactly My favourite food is cake What kind of cake It doesn t matter All cake You jsut gave me so much shit for not picking, he begins But it s so hard to pick one kind I burst out I mean, there s coconut cake, the kind with white forsting that looks like a snowball I like that a lot But then I also like cheesecake, and lemon cake, and carrot cake Also red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting, and chocolate cake with chocoalte ganache frosting I pause Have you ever had olive oil cake No That sounds weird It s really, really goood Really moist and delicious I ll make it for you Peter groans You re making me hungry YOU AND ME BOTH, PETER SOBBING BECAUSE NEEDS CAKE The Blurb Lara Jean s love life goes from imaginary to out of control in this heartfelt novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Summer I Turned Pretty series.The Reality Privileged, boring, 16 year old girl whose voice sounds closer to 12 feels sorry for herself because her sister s boyfriend doesn t want her Until he does Conclusion There is none Just a lot of faffing about, moronically pining, and an inconclusive non ending.2014 Contemporary YA sucks So many books I ve been looking forward to have let me down Other books that I ve taken a chance on have also let me down Honestly, where are the sophisticated but no less realistic and dramatic voices of authors like Melina Marchetta or Courtney Summers Why does every YA narrator have the same recycled, immature narrative voice I am seriously starting to wonder if Young Adult has ran its course My reading of the past few years has been defined by trends in YA I ve been propelled towards dystopias and fantasy novels with teen protagonists and I ve loved, hated, laughed, cried and obsessed Now I have to wonder has the genre finally ran out of steam To All the Boys I ve Loved Before is about a girl called Lara Jean who s been crushing on her sister s boyfriend since before they were together Her sister, Margot, will soon be leaving for college so she breaks up with said boyfriend Josh leaving him behind and single and oh so heartbroken Then there s the other part of this story Lara Jean has written love letters to all her past crushes 5 Never sent them, of course, just written down the emotions and angst as a kind of release Now a mysterious someone view spoiler hide spoiler 4.5 5Reread in August 2018This was so much cuter than I remember Though I still have some of the problems with the book that I had the first time I read it basically, it just annoyed me that she called her dad Daddy though I did the same thing up until I was like 13 Why am I so judgmental , it was a very enjoyable experience It was even enjoyable since it was a reread in preparation for watching the Netflix original Though I haven t seen it yet, I had the actors in mind the entire time And let me tell you, Noah Centineo is a much handsomer Peter than the one I had in my head I m not complaining.Though I wasn t planning on continuing on and rereading the rest of the series, I think I just might I always need Lara Jean in my life 3Original review June 2014 I really enjoyed this book and how it wasn t really what I was expecting The character development was also great, especially Peter s I still prefer her other books from the Summer trilogy as I found myself loving every single character In this book, I only really liked Lara Jean, Kitty, Josh sometimes , Peter, and her dad The writing also started out a little young in my opinion I guess I was just thrown off by her calling her mother and father Mommy and Daddy, but I thought I was reading from her POV of when she was 11 or so I quickly got used to this writing, though, and it made for a quick and enjoyable read The reason I couldn t give it a full 5 5 was because of the things I stated above and the ending, which ended a bit abruptly. Well That was disappointing.I absolutely could not stand Lara Jean s voice She sounded like a child, even though she s 16 years old STOP She also cried any time something mildly unfortunate happened, and that got old real fast.I fail to see how any of the romance in this book was cute There are two love interests, and both of them were horrible I wasn t rooting for either of them at all.ALSO, the letters, which I thought would be a big part of the story, were really only used as something to spice up the plot near the beginning, and once they had served their purpose, they stopped mattering Lara Jean didn t even seem to care who sent them out, or why, and that really bothered me Who would just be like OH WELL LOL MOVING ON.It started out as a fun, light read, but it lacked substance, which is why I didn t really enjoy it. 4 5 Stars When someone s been gone a long time, at first you save up all the things you want to tell them You try to keep track of everything in your head But it s like trying to hold on to a fistful of sand all the little bits slip out of your hands, and then you re just clutching air and grit I need to talk about something here By the time I m writing this review, I have read the entire trilogy I finished it under three days because, you know, I had nothing better to do these days and I set this fucking goal for myself so whatvs Doesn t mean I loved this series so much especially the last book , it was just extremely easy to read and a nice companion for these three days So, if I confuse a detail or something from another book of this series and write it here, I m very sorry Everything is messed up in my brain cause of binge reading So, now let s go Sixteen year old Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her They aren t love letters that anyone else wrote for her these are ones she s written One for every boy she s ever loved five in all When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean s love life goes from imaginary to out of control.As I mentioned earlier, I read this book very fast I read it in a couple of hours, watched the movie late at night I will discuss it later and then decided I would finish this series in three days This is a very lighthearted, cute, fluffy contemporary, which is not exactly for my age demographic any, but I found it adorable nonetheless The fake relationship trope is my NUMBER ONE RELATIONSHIP TROPE since I started reading fan fiction so many years ago Trust me, if I had read this series when it first came out, I would cry my eyes out for it But now, I m 21 years old, and I m starting to become of a critical reader the books I read but I choose which ones to judge hard Like The Selection Series Collection, I will choose to not judge this book harshly, because its purpose it to entertain and not be taken seriously And I was definitely entertained and I didn t take it seriously So here we go.The covers of these books are dead on gorgeous I m a graphic designer so I know they are easy enough designs, but there s something to them, you know, that drew my attention Due to my profession, I judge a book by its cover I M SORRY It s hard being a graphic designer and a bookworm because we JUDGE EVERYTHING Every time I buy a book, I find the most conspicuous details to judge I have so many books that I know I will love, that I won t buy because the covers are extremely shitty Mostly older books, because covers now are phenomenal, thank God I always try to find alternative covers of those books that I like enough to buy But they are always fucking expensive as shit So yeah Fuck It s hard being a detail oriented graphic designer like myself and being a bookworm too Fuck my life This book was adorable The plot was adorable, the characters were adorable, the setting was adorable It was a classic 80s American movie regarding schools The first book was my favorite of the series It was intense, the plot was interesting, there was shit going on, you know The love triangle kept me at my toes, even though I rolled my eyes many times I rooted for Josh at the beginning, but then Peter become THE ULTIMATE BAE Honestly, Peter was so dreamy I m not a pedophile, I swear, BUT PETER HOT DAMN BOI I found Lara Jean extremely immature, juvenile and annoying, at times But I mostly rooted for her and related to her I related to how she couldn t commit, how closed off she was as a person, how she couldn t trust to start a real relationship and kept to her fantasies I also, related to how much she hated driving I got my driver s license at 18, the legal age here, and I haven t really drove since I m unfathomably scared of driving and I saw myself in her I see how good she got with driving as the books pass, and that inspired me I don t understand something WHY SO MUCH FOOD IN THIS BOOK This whole aspect dragged the book for me So many unnecessary descriptions of food that would take up whole pages for no apparent reason Honestly, Americans eat so many things strange to us Europeans, wtf is all this American food always confused me There was also some Greek food mentioned in these books, which I appreciated Thanks, books We have better food than you, Americans SUCK IT But, for real now, NO ONE IN THIS FAMILY HAS A SLOW METABOLISM With so much unhealthy food and no exercise, a person like me would be doomed in this family I wanted an over weight person in this story, it would be realistic The only diversity in these books, were the Song sisters, which are half Korean This is an old book and for a book of that time, this is amazing diversity Their Korean side wasn t brushed off, we got many mentions of it throughout the book We also got a gay character, Lucas, which I m very happy about But we didn t see him with anyone, basically he was a very forgotten character who wasn t given a singular plot He was just there, to be a friend to Lara Jean Lucas deserved so much Chris was okay I didn t care for her as much in this book, but my opinion changed in the next books She became a very good friend to Lara Jean and a very important person in her life She s not the kind of friend I would choose, but she turned out to be a good person.Now, let s talk the sisters I didn t like Margot, especially in this book She was bossy, controlling and she thought she was better that everyone in her family and she always knew best I was very glad she left for Scotland, which I admired She is a strong willed character, unlike Lara Jean And I admired that about her And now let s talk about my spirit animal, KITTY She was HILARIOUS and AWESOME I truly believe she didn t act her age, she was too mature and she knew too much to be 9 That s why, I believe, they changed her age in the movie But I loved her so much, she was my fav of the sisters I wish I were like her, when I was a child and even now Ugh WHY DO ALL THE SISTERS STILL CALL THEIR FATHER DADDY AND THEIR DEAD MOTHER MOMMY STOP THIS FUCKING BULLSHIT, I WAS CRINGING MY WHOLE LIFE MARGOT YOU RE FUCKING 20 IN THE LAST BOOK, STOP STOP STOP UGH I bought these books a long time ago I have waited for the movie to come out first, so I could watch it right after I read the book Which I did I was in a high from the first book when I watched the movie and I fucking loved it The same thing that happened with Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda and its movie adaptation happened here They changed tremendously many important parts from the books, that couldn t have been changed, but they made something new and unique out of it which kept the essence of the story the book wanted to portray I was rolling my eyes out at some moments, and I was screaming at the screen WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU CHANGE THAT, IT MAKES NO SENSE and THIS DIDN T HAPPEN TAHT FUCKING WAY IN THIS BOOK, YOU FUCKING BAFOON, AND IT DIDN T NEED TO CHANGE but the whole feeling of the book was kept intact in the movie And it was an amazing one First of all, they casted actors who look 16 Fucking hallelujah They kept many jokes from the books, but also invented some I think the movie made up for all the humor that didn t exist in the book The movie was dead on hilarious, I couldn t stop laughing at some points The actress for Lara Jean was perfect, Josh was how I imagined but PETER PETER MAN The actor was a younger Matthew Daddario Oh, I love this bitch For me, he s the epitome of hotness, below my ultimate bae Zac Efron, of course I need to talk about something that bothered me a lot in the movie I loathed how they erased Josh s part in the triangle I know, triangles are bad boohoo, but I liked this one and it was exciting in this book I know the triangle shifts in the next book, but it should have been kept in this movie They made Peter the only valid option and erased Josh from the equation Which made his character a side character with no purpose whatsoever They skipped on to the second book immediately And I didn t enjoy that Also, when I first watched the movie, some plots were new and I wad confused Like the pool sex tape plot Which was unknown to me, before I read the second book I m curious to see what they will add in the second film, if they make one Judging by the last cameo, they will I m very excited, to be honest COME ON NETFLIX I PAY FOR YOU NOW DON T EMBARRASS ME.Overall, this was a very cute and easy to read book I will never read an entire series without writing a review for each book after I finish it, again My review in my head for this book was so much different when I pictured it in my head But now that I have read the next two books, this series has a different light in my mind Not a good one But I ve learned my lesson, I will write individual reviews for each book before going to the next Everything is a huge fucking pile of shit mess in my head now, these reviews are hard for me to write I have learned my lesson Anyway, till the next one, which will be soon cause I got two books to review, K BYE I read this in a day SO CUTE Follows a girl called Lara Jean and through her life she has written letters to all the boys she has loved in her past, she keeps these letters safely tucked away from the word However, one day she finds they are gone, her letters have been sent out, and everyone she has ever loved now knows Including her older sisters ex boyfriend This story follows Lara Jean as she struggles with her relationship with her older sister and her past loves It had so many levels, yes it was a love story but it also focused on the relationship between sisters and family I really really enjoyed this, and when I read the last page I actually got angry because I wanted I really hope this is a series. If I wrote this book it would go a little something like thisTo all the boys I ve loved before Fuck You. `Free ☠ To All the Boys I've Loved Before ⇧ 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
