I am a huge fan of this movie and once I found out it was originally a book I just had to read it.
I think the fact I watched the movie first gave me some drawbacks for liking this book. I mean don’t get me wrong it isn’t a bad book but it isn’t a good nbook either.
The story doesn’t genuinely draw me in as much as I thought it would and yes because I loved the movie. Damn it! Now I am disappointed in myself. Totally should have read the book first.
The concept of this book was brilliant. The main character, Lara Jean hasn’t had a boyfriend. She writes the people she had a strong emotional connection with (I really don’t want to use crush) a letter when she didn’t want to actually tell them she liked them and these letters get out. This was the bit I loved because I can relate to it. I don’t admit anything. I write everything down! I could never imagine anyone reading them.
I also liked the twist about how the letters got out. Was a good one.
I felt like there was a bit of humour in this book but it was let down a lot. The relationship with her sister and they was she was treated. They was she had to be perfect for everyone else just seriously bugged me. I also couldn’t stand her friends language sense. No one actually speaks like that. Just totally bugged me.
Overall, it was a fast paced and entertaining book, it just lacked.
