To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. The first I knew that a book of this name existed was thanks to the bookstagrammers I follow on instagram.
This one on the left is the bookcover that I first saw. I added the book to my TBR because I liked the cover.
Yes, I add books to my TBR just on the basis of their covers.
Well… let’s get to the point.
I added the book to my TBR but seeing that it is a huge list, I have not yet read the book or the two that followed.
Very recently, I found out that there was a Netflix original movie for this book and now that I already knew the synopsis, I wanted to watch it.
But, being a book person, it was a hard to choice to opt for a movie when i had not read the book yet. Yet, I went ahead and watched the movie lat night.
And oh boy! How much I loved it!
There were so many aww moments in the innocent love that the romantic in me was bubbling with happiness and excitement.
Let’s talk in bullet points here?
- I guess everyone has, at some point of their life experienced unrequited love, so it was pretty easy to understand what Lara Jean had gone through which gave the entire story a perspective that was grounded in reality.
- Writing letters that you vow never to send out? That is me. I do that. That made the story a little more personal for me. That translates into, I was totally into the story.
- Pretend relationship to real relationships is one of my all time favourite romance tropes and I cherished at those moments that Lara Jean and Peter had throughout their journey. I could see my younger self doing what LJ did.
- Lana Condor’s and Noah Centineo’s acting portrays the excitement of finding love and being confused by the feelings at the same time. It was adorable to watch them rediscover themselves.
A definite must watch even when the book reviews of the book are not that great.
