about

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is now a major motion picture streaming on Netflix!

Lara Jean’s love life gets complicated in this New York Times bestselling “lovely, lighthearted romance” (School Library Journal) from the bestselling author of The Summer I Turned Pretty series.

What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them…all at once?

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.
Jenny Han was born and raised in Richmond, Virginia. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and earned an MFA in writing for children at New School University. She lives in New York City.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute Romance With a Great Premise The only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars is because I found the movie to be just that much better than the book. Believe me, it's something I never thought I'd say either. Aside from that, I really did adore this book. I have read enough books and learned enough about myself to understand that fake-dating is one of my top 3 favourite romance tropes ever. And as someone who really doesn't touch contemporary romance because of ... reasons, this had the right premise to catch my attention and not become boringly predictable. I really like Lara Jean. The name is a mouthful, but I thought she was adorable and quite relatable. Her dynamic with her sisters was quite realistic, particularly with Margot considering everything that goes down. Kitty is quite a little star with that attitude of hers :) As for the boys, Josh is a bit of a twit and Peter, well, he's definitely a teenage boy who needs a few adjustments, but I was firmly on his team. Overall, this was a winner for me. It's sweet and humorous and has a great premise that really hit home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet romance This is a well written YA romance. The characters are well developed, and the journey is fun and sometimes bittersweet. Buy the sequel as well - you will want to read it after you turn the last page of this one. Guaranteed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but Slightly Disappointed Maybe my mistake was that I watched the movie first, but I was a bit disappointed at the character Peter. I loved him in the movie so I guess I was expecting him to be pretty similar in the book, but he was more of a jerk. There were still cute moments though, and I guess his character was more realistic that way. Aside from his character, I liked how the book was very relatable in terms of the way the sisters felt and what they thought about certain things. I finished it in one sitting though I wouldn't call it a GREAT book, but a GOOD one. I'd definitely recommend it to teens and young adults.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute I have a confession to make...I didn't read this book until I saw the movie. I heard great things about it, but I didn't want to read it because it looked like a romance book which wasn't my type of read. I watched the movie out of curiosity to see what was all the hype about. I liked the movie now I wanted to read the book. It's a quick cute read. For those who aren't into teen romance books, this one is totally worth it.

I had first watched the movie and I fell in love with that and then went ahead to read the book and the book was so much more better and I absolutely loved this book. I bought the rest of the trilogy as well and I read them all so quickly because they're amazing. Lara Jean is such an amusing and easy character to read about and her mind and thoughts are absolutely hilarious. This book brought out my inner teenager. Her character was so relatable to my 17 year old self.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FAVOURITE HIGH SCHOOL BOOK I remember reading this back in sophomore year, and I honestly loved it from the start. It made me want to continue reading the series. The book had many scenarios that I could relate to, which is why I enjoyed it so much. I loved Kitty the most, she is so adorable and so funny to read about!! Margot is also such an amazing older sister. Peter really seems like that typical playboy at first, but as you keep reading, you realize he is also such an amazing person. This book really emphasizes the importance of not judging a book by its cover. This is definitely a book I would pass down generation after generation, so everyone has something to laugh about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! While reading this story, I was reminded of why I enjoy reading Young Adult romance novels. The storyline was a breath of fresh air with no overt sexual scenes, and the description of a first love was tender and empathetic. When I read about Lara Jean, I could imagine my own teen daughters experiencing their first love. The interaction between the siblings, as well as between the members of the opposite sex, is believable. I loved this story so much, I could not stop reading it and finished it within a day. I have set the novel aside for my daughters to read - and I have ordered the next book in the series. If you enjoy romance stories, you will enjoy this one (no matter whether you have read a Young Adult book or not). This story is also appropriate for young teens, so there is no need to worry if you daughter or granddaughter wishes to immerse herself in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engaging Story I want to start off this review by saying, I would not condone any the behavior from the characters. I felt that they came off as a bit cartoonish, and their personalities were not very well fleshed out. That being said, after the first few chapters I still found myself engaged in the writing and the story. I finished the book in a day, that’s why I’m giving it 5 stars.
Date published: 2018-08-20
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute Enough The book was very predictable and light. It didn't really delve deep into topics that were brought up. That being said, sometimes you are just in the mood for a super lighthearted contemporary YA book that doesn't require meditation. Because of this, I had an enjoyable reading experience.
Date published: 2018-08-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO CUTE I didn’t think I would like this book. Lara Jean might be or is a bit childish but I still really enjoyed reading this book. I found myself liking Peter more and more. I also really like the focus on family relationships.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute and sweet! Ignored the movie This novel is like a cupcake in book form. It's so cute and silly, and it feels so close to my heart. The reading goes by super quick, too. PS: Don't compare this to the movie. I watched it and it felt awkward and forced and WAY too teen-flicky, The book is definitely sweeter and less dramatic.

Date published: 2018-08-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Romantic High School- Like Book This book is about a teenage girl and her family as well as her crushes on some cute boys. The main character freaks out when her love letters are sent out to the people who she has a crush on. This book is romantic, it does have some mature scenes not suitable for younger kids. It has a lot of drama about school-life. It teaches a lesson about being who you are and being real about yourself and having the courage to love people and how to take it a step from there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favourite books now!! Once I saw the trailer for this book coming out in August, I knew I had to read the book beforehand! This is such a heartwarming novel, it makes me reminiscence back to when I had crushes on people in elementary and high school. I loved every bit of this reading!
Date published: 2018-08-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wasn't what I expected, but I loved it anyway. I saw the trailer for the movie that's being released this year, and I just assumed it would be about Lara Jean and all 5 boys she wrote love letters too. This book turned out to revolve not only on her love life, but her family life as well. Even though I was caught off guard at first, I couldn't put the book down and read it in one sitting. It's a very easy and fast read, and you can't help but want to know what's going to happen next. Needless to say I immediately purchased the next two books and I can't wait to read them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really cute.. flew through this! I will preface this by saying I found Jenny Han's The Summer I Turned Pretty Trilogy to be so-so and wasn't really a fan.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute Teen Read This was an easy quick read and I had no trouble getting through the book BUT I wish I would have read this book years ago when I had the chance. The reason for the 3 stars is I found myself rolling my eyes some times at the characters and found them immature most of the book but I am chalking that up to the fact that I am a lot older than these characters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from To All The Books I've Loved Before What a cute, perfect, easy read for a summer day! Not only was it a page turner but it wasn't what I initially expected. I immediately bought the rest of the trilogy. Interested to see where Jenny Han takes Lara Jean. This book was so much more than just a young girl falling in love for the first time but it's also a story about change and family. Really loved it, my favourite YA novel I've read this summer.

Date published: 2018-07-27
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute, delightful, easy read I do not read a lot of YA contemporaries. Mostly because I went to high school, it's been like 7 years since I graduated, and I didn't like it enough that I want to read about fictional people's experiences with high school. But the movie is coming to Netflix soon and it looks pretty sweet so I figured I might as well read this book that appears to be quite popular. Plus, I read Jenny Han's Shug when I was in middle school and genuinely enjoyed her writing but haven't read a single book of hers since. At first I felt that the characters in this book were immature. Haven't changed my mind, but what I have done is remind myself that I am nearly a decade older than the protagonist. As a high school student, I was certainly mature for my age (I "blame" this on the fact that my mom was diagnosed with cancer when I was 11; that made me grow up pretty fast), but I was still a high school student. High school students? Not that mature, overall. So I was rolling my eyes reading about all this petty high school gossip and boy drama, but when I really thought about it, it wasn't so different from what was going on all around me throughout high school. So maybe Jenny Han actually just gets more points for authenticity. This book was cute and sweet and quite delightful. More than just being easy to read (it was), I was surprised by just how difficult it was to put down. I really liked the characters, particularly Lara Jean, her sisters, and their father. Lara Jean was honestly a lot like me in high school. Bit of a nerd (still am), didn't swear (I sure do now!), didn't drink (still don't), and didn't really go to parties (can't say I really do now, either). She's a romantic. And she genuinely enjoys spending time with her family. She considers her sisters to be her best friends, to be more than her best friends. I think if you're like me, a sister of sister(s) whom you're really close to, you'll relate to that, too. Lara Jean and her family just seemed very realistic, and I loved them. But I did have some issues with the book. Peter is Lara Jean's love interest, and he is a jerk. Which is to say, he's a sixteen-year-old boy, I guess. After Lara Jean's love letters are sent out to her previous crushes, including Peter and Josh (her older sister's recent ex), she agrees to fake date Peter in order to save face with Josh and prove she no longer loves him, and make Peter's ex, Genevieve, jealous. Unless you were born yesterday, you know where this fake relationship plot line is going. Thing is, I'm honestly surprised that Lara Jean would have any interest in being Peter's real girlfriend after being his fake girlfriend. He is so clingy and annoying! Clingy guys are the w o r s t. I cannot emphasize this enough. The part that made me extra annoyed was when they are going on the ski trip, and Lara Jean sits with her best friend, Chris, on the bus instead of with Peter, and Peter makes such a big deal out of it, saying that when people are dating, there are certain expectations, and sitting together on the bus for a school trip is pretty much a given. Sheesh. I think this hit home because in high school one of my best friends actually did ditch me to sit with her boyfriend on a school trip bus ride, and it hurt, and I vowed I would never do that to any of my friends ever. So I read that, and it really made me dislike Peter. Then there's Josh, the boy next door, who knows how close the Song sisters are and should really know better than to make a move on his ex-girlfriend's little sister. Enough said, yes? But after everything, this book ends on a damn cliffhanger. I was pretty much just planning to read this one in prep for the movie, and perhaps return to the series later. But, nope, I'm already partway through the sequel. Me! Who strongly dislikes contemporaries! Honestly, I can see myself reading everything Jenny Han has written just because her writing is so easy to get into. She crafts such authentic voices for her narrators. These are pretty much perfect summer reads. Also, I really love that Lara Jean and her sisters are half-Korean, and with their mother dead, their white father still puts in an effort to keep them connected to their Korean heritage, which includes cooking Korean food really poorly. It was just touching. Dr. Covey is a good dad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i love this book!! Jenny Han does an excellent job in portraying Lara Jean as a normal girl in high school. Her relationship with her sisters and her father is adorable and real and her love life is relatable. I also enjoyed that Jenny Han brought up the topic of casual racism in Lara Jean's life. Overall, one of my favourite YA romance books!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Romance Features Relatable, Awkward-Yet-Loveable Heroine Do authors exist for the sole reason of ripping out their readers' hearts and stomping all over them? Because I swear, Jenny Han - who would appear to be a total cinnamon roll - has a sadistic side. Obviously, I loved the book, but I was ugly sobbing by the end of it. Thank God I have the next book ready at hand, because after that ending, I couldn't stand being unable to find out where Lara Jean goes from here. I admit, I was a little skeptic because of the hype surrounding this trilogy, but I completely understand it now. Jenny Han has officially won me over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! This book definitely lived up to the hype. I met Jenny Han at a book signing last year, and I have all the books in the series, but I hadn’t read any of them until now. I loved Lara Jean. I found her very relatable. She makes mistakes and can own up to them. Even though it wasn’t her fault that her letters were sent out, she still accepted that it happened and tried to move on. I liked the family dynamics of the story. The Covey family is unique. Their mother died when they were young, and their father works as a doctor, so most of the housework and cooking fell on Margot’s shoulders because she was the oldest. Then she has to pass that off to Lara Jean when Margot left to go to school in Scotland. The youngest sister, Kitty, was so funny. She was sarcastic and wise beyond her years, so she made many funny comments. I loved this book. I already had some spoilers to what happened since I’m reading it so late, but I still really enjoyed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from such a relatable and adorable story Growing up Asian-Canadian had me relate to this story so much. There were just so many insights about having a foot in each world, and I love how Lara Jean was able to show that in such a casual, undetected way. The way the romance was handled was also just... so sweet. I will definitely get the next one - the way this ended...!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! Lots of thoughts, so list format is probably best: - PETER KAVINSKY. Still love him to bits and I think he's solidified his spot as a top book BF - Lara Jean and Peter are the cutest and I swear to god if this ship doesn't keep sailing off into the sun I'm gonna flip - THAT ENDING! WHAT WAS THAT! I forgot it ends abrupt as hell and I'm wondering how I didn't die waiting for the sequel (which I'm highly nervous about) - Still not a fan of Margot. Lara Jean hypes her up, frankly, and I didn't like how Margot treats her many times - Also, Josh is meh - Kitty is an absolute delight. Definitely like her more on reread - I know a common complaint is about how naive and young Lara Jean acts, but I found her much easier to read this time. Not sure why but I'm not complaining - Lara Jean and Peter again because their scenes together were perfection - Not a fan of how everybody in the book slut shames Chris - even Lara Jean. It's gross and nobody is called out on it - The short chapters make this such a fast read

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different. The story and the plot were very enjoyable and interesting. I also loved the Asian representation in this book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute but disappointing To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before starts off sweet - Lara Jean’s life is being established as having an amazing loving family, two sisters Margot and Kitty, who are like dear friends to her, and the boy-next-door, Josh, who is practically a part of their family. Lara Jean is a shy girl who doesn’t come out with her feelings, so she instead has always written letters to her crushes to get it over with and stores them for safekeeping. But when her letters get mailed to the guys, and she has to hide her current feelings from Josh (who is also Margot’s ex), she gets drawn into an elaborate lie with another of her previous crushes, Peter Kavinsky. At first, I thought it was adorable, you know - the pretend romance becomes real trope is cute in most situations. You wait for these two to stop denying their feelings and realize that they liked each other, or start to like each other and the fake romance becomes real, right? So, in the start, when Peter is acting like a dick, I thought maybe he is just overcompensating for being half in love with her? (I blame rom-coms for instilling this kind of thought in my head - we have been conditioned to treat terrible guys as still redeemable but that is a conversation for another time) But till the end of the book, I do not get any indication that he is interested in her because of her - it seems more like she is an attractive girl who is quite different from his controlling ex, and she happens to already like him, so he also likes her. There is also the problem of character inconsistency - the Margot and Josh at the beginning of the book hardly match the ones at the end. Margot becomes distant from Lara Jean but she also blames her first for Josh kissing LJ (which is weird for Margot, because she seems like the kind of sister who wouldn’t be mad at her beloved younger sister over a boy she doesn’t even have feelings for anymore). And Josh becomes a weird jealous ex (for LJ) as the story progresses, when initially he comes across as her close friend who confesses he once had a crush on her, but was shown to be in love with Margot. Then there is Gen, who is an enigma for most of the novel - and no, I won’t accept the evil ex trope here. Surely there had to be more to her character than just being a catalyst. And there are two weird chapters just to introduce another boy, John, who is so obviously going to be in the sequel. So while it was cute and adorable and mushy in nearly two-thirds of the book, and I had genuinely liked the portrayal of Lara Jean and her character, I wasn’t satisfied by the romance. Which, considering this is a freaking contemporary romance and basically the whole plot, is a sad disappointment. The cute moments just couldn’t make me forget how it was wrapped in the end, I’m sorry to say.

Read from the Book

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before 1 JOSH IS MARGOT’S BOYFRIEND, BUT I guess you could say my whole family is a little in love with him. It’s hard to say who most of all. Before he was Margot’s boyfriend, he was just Josh. He was always there. I say always, but I guess that’s not true. He moved next door five years ago but it feels like always. My dad loves Josh because he’s a boy and my dad is surrounded by girls. I mean it: all day long he is surrounded by females. My dad is an ob-gyn, and he also happens to be the father of three daughters, so it’s like girls, girls, girls all day. He also likes Josh because Josh likes comics and he’ll go fishing with him. My dad tried to take us fishing once, and I cried when my shoes got mud on them, and Margot cried when her book got wet, and Kitty cried because Kitty was still practically a baby. Kitty loves Josh because he’ll play cards with her and not get bored. Or at least pretend to not get bored. They make deals with each other—if I win this next hand, you have to make me a toasted crunchy-peanut-butter-sandwich, no crusts. That’s Kitty. Inevitably there won’t be crunchy peanut butter and Josh will say too bad, pick something else. But then Kitty will wear him down and he’ll run out and buy some, because that’s Josh. If I had to say why Margot loves him, I think maybe I would say it’s because we all do. We are in the living room, Kitty is pasting pictures of dogs to a giant piece of cardboard. There’s paper and scraps all around her. Humming to herself, she says, “When Daddy asks me what I want for Christmas, I am just going to say, ‘Pick any one of these breeds and we’ll be good.’?” Margot and Josh are on the couch; I’m lying on the floor, watching TV. Josh popped a big bowl of popcorn, and I devote myself to it, handfuls and handfuls of it. A commercial comes on for perfume: a girl is running around the streets of Paris in an orchid-colored halter dress that is thin as tissue paper. What I wouldn’t give to be that girl in that tissue-paper dress running around Paris in springtime! I sit up so suddenly I choke on a kernel of popcorn. Between coughs I say, “Margot, let’s meet in Paris for my spring break!” I’m already picturing myself twirling with a pistachio macaron in one hand and a raspberry one in the other. Margot’s eyes light up. “Do you think Daddy will let you?” “Sure, it’s culture. He’ll have to let me.” But it’s true that I’ve never flown by myself before. And also I’ve never even left the country before. Would Margot meet me at the airport, or would I have to find my own way to the hostel? Josh must see the sudden worry on my face because he says, “Don’t worry. Your dad will definitely let you go if I’m with you.” I brighten. “Yeah! We can stay at hostels and just eat pastries and cheese for all our meals.” “We can go to Jim Morrison’s grave!” Josh throws in. “We can go to a parfumerie and get our personal scents done!” I cheer, and Josh snorts. “Um, I’m pretty sure ‘getting our scents done’ at a parfumerie would cost the same as a week’s stay at the hostel,” he says. He nudges Margot. “Your sister suffers from delusions of grandeur.” “She is the fanciest of the three of us,” Margot agrees. “What about me?” Kitty whimpers. “You?” I scoff. “You’re the least fancy Song girl. I have to beg you to wash your feet at night, much less take a shower.” Kitty’s face gets pinched and red. “I wasn’t talking about that, you dodo bird. I was talking about Paris.” Airily, I wave her off. “You’re too little to stay at a hostel.” She crawls over to Margot and climbs in her lap, even though she’s nine and nine is too big to sit in people’s laps. “Margot, you’ll let me go, won’t you?” “Maybe it could be a family vacation,” Margot says, kissing her cheek. “You and Lara Jean and Daddy could all come.” I frown. That’s not at all the Paris trip I was imagining. Over Kitty’s head Josh mouths to me, We’ll talk later, and I give him a discreet thumbs-up. * * * It’s later that night; Josh is long gone. Kitty and our dad are asleep. We are in the kitchen. Margot is at the table on her computer; I am sitting next to her, rolling cookie dough into balls and dropping them in cinnamon and sugar. Snickerdoodles to get back in Kitty’s good graces. Earlier, when I went in to say good night, Kitty rolled over and wouldn’t speak to me because she’s still convinced I’m going to try to cut her out of the Paris trip. My plan is to put the snickerdoodles on a plate right next to her pillow so she wakes up to the smell of fresh-baked cookies. Margot’s being extra quiet, and then, out of nowhere, she looks up from her computer and says, “I broke up with Josh tonight. After dinner.” My cookie-dough ball falls out of my fingers and into the sugar bowl. “I mean, it was time,” she says. Her eyes aren’t red-rimmed; she hasn’t been crying, I don’t think. Her voice is calm and even. Anyone looking at her would think she was fine. Because Margot is always fine, even when she’s not. “I don’t see why you had to break up,” I say. “Just ’cause you’re going to college doesn’t mean you have to break up.” “Lara Jean, I’m going to Scotland, not UVA. Saint Andrews is nearly four thousand miles away.” She pushes up her glasses. “What would be the point?” I can’t even believe she would say that. “The point is, it’s Josh. Josh who loves you more than any boy has ever loved a girl!” Margot rolls her eyes at this. She thinks I’m being dramatic, but I’m not. It’s true—that’s how much Josh loves Margot. He would never so much as look at another girl. Suddenly she says, “Do you know what Mommy told me once?” “What?” For a moment I forget all about Josh. Because no matter what I am doing in life, if Margot and I are in the middle of an argument, if I am about to get hit by a car, I will always stop and listen to a story about Mommy. Any detail, any remembrance that Margot has, I want to have it too. I’m better off than Kitty, though. Kitty doesn’t have one memory of Mommy that we haven’t given her. We’ve told her so many stories so many times that they’re hers now. “Remember that time . . . ,” she’ll say. And then she’ll tell the story like she was there and not just a little baby. “She told me to try not to go to college with a boyfriend. She said she didn’t want me to be the girl crying on the phone with her boyfriend and saying no to things instead of yes.” Scotland is Margot’s yes, I guess. Absently, I scoop up a mound of cookie dough and pop it in my mouth. “You shouldn’t eat raw cookie dough,” Margot says. I ignore her. “Josh would never hold you back from anything. He’s not like that. Remember how when you decided to run for student-body president, he was your campaign manager? He’s your biggest fan!” At this, the corners of Margot’s mouth turn down, and I get up and fling my arms around her neck. She leans her head back and smiles up at me. “I’m okay,” she says, but she isn’t, I know she isn’t. “It’s not too late, you know. You can go over there right now and tell him you changed your mind.” Margot shakes her head. “It’s done, Lara Jean.” I release her and she closes her laptop. “When will the first batch be ready? I’m hungry.” I look at the magnetic egg timer on the fridge. “Four more minutes.” I sit back down and say, “I don’t care what you say, Margot. You guys aren’t done. You love him too much.” She shakes her head. “Lara Jean,” she begins, in her patient Margot voice, like I am a child and she is a wise old woman of forty-two. I wave a spoonful of cookie dough under Margot’s nose, and she hesitates and then opens her mouth. I feed it to her like a baby. “Wait and see, you and Josh will be back together in a day, maybe two.” But even as I’m saying it, I know it’s not true. Margot’s not the kind of girl to break up and get back together on a whim; once she’s decided something, that’s it. There’s no waffling, no regrets. It’s like she said: when she’s done, she’s just done. I wish (and this is a thought I’ve had many, many times, too many times to count) I was more like Margot. Because sometimes it feels like I’ll never be done. Later, after I’ve washed the dishes and plated the cookies and set them on Kitty’s pillow, I go to my room. I don’t turn the light on. I go to my window. Josh’s light is still on.
