Summary from Goodreads

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.

My Review

Refreshing and very entertaining story. It has just the right mix of family, love, comedy and drama. But I guess what hooked me up is not knowing who will Lara Jean really end up with. 

From the title, I was expecting to read all about the boys Lara Jean fell in love. But the story focused mainly on Josh and Peter. I'm not complaining though, this two guys has both fully consumed my heart. No more space for anyone else. 

It's a light story that I have finished in one day without even noticing I've been reading it the whole day. The story and the style of the writing is so enjoyable that there's no bits of boredom in this book. It's a story that will make you laugh, makes you think and makes you reminisce of how were you during those times that you were in love when you were in high school.

Though there are certain parts in the book that I feel lacking. First, as what I've mentioned, I haven't hear much of the other boys. Then, I feel like there are some unfinished business and some unexplained issues that were not elaborated. But as a whole, it's a good story that when I was on my last page, I was begging for more. Could there be a book 2 of this? I really need it badly.
