I read To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han from my top ten books on my summer tbr list. I picked this one up on my Nook for $2.99, I was super excited to see this book in the bargain section. This was my first Jenny Han book, though I have heard good things about her other books too. The is the first book in a dualology, which I'm excited about. I thought the ending was good enough to be the end of the story, but I love that this book has a sequel.
At first, Lara Jean's voice sounded really young. She is a Junior in high school in the book but for some reason she sounded so much younger to me and it was a little annoying until I got used to it. It could be because I read this after Bridget Jones's Diary which is narrated by a thirty-something woman, which could have made the teenage voice seem young. But after I got used to the voice I couldn't put this book down! It was funny and adorable. I was laughing at some of the situations Lara Jean got herself into and the dialogue was great.
This book has put me in the mood for YA contemporary, which is a genre that I usually don't buy, so I would love some suggestions.
This is a great summer read, and I'm excited for the sequel, Ps. I Still Love You which is set to release in 2015. I am also looking forward to checking out Han's other books, such as The Summer I Turned Pretty Trilogy and Burn for Burn which she co-wrote.
