To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before #1) by Jenny Han
Genre: Young Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: April 15, 2014
Publisher: Simon Schuster & Books for Young Readers

Lara Jean’s love life gets complicated in this New York Times bestselling “lovely, lighthearted romance” from the New York Times 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.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before is the first book in the series of the same name by Jenny Han. I figured this was either going to be cute or silly, and it was a little bit of both and then some. I definitely didn't expect to like it as much as I did. Lara Jean is to blame for that. Her personality reminded me so much of myself as a teenager, so I related to her a lot. Her little sister was adorable. She made me want a sibling. The oldest sister? Not so much. She makes me glad to be an only child.

I wouldn't really call this a love triangle, but at this point, I'm leaning towards Team Peter. There are things I don't like about him. I think he's insecure, despite appearances, and I think that's why he acts like a jerk sometimes. So, I'm on the fence. He has potential though. I liked Josh enough, but I don't think he's right for Lara Jean either. So, my Team status is pending.

This was such a light and entertaining story. I had so much fun in high school, and this book brought me right back to it!
