To All the Boys I've Loved Before (review)

My Review

This book toyed with my heart on so many levels. It was a rollercoaster of feelings. What I really liked about this book is that there was a perfect flow between the 2 books. P.S. I Still Love You continued directly where we left of in To All The Boys I've Loved Before. The story is quite a heartbreaker, but there's a silver lining and you don't regret picking up this duology. 

The characters really speak to me. Lara Jean is a 'goodie two shoes' and it's totally awesome. I love all the baking references as I'm a huge baking fan myself and all the cakes and goodies sound so tasty! I also really like the part with Stormy in the retirement home which becomes an important part in the second book. Stormy's an awesome character and I really enjoyed the chapter where she and Alicia talked about their first loves. It gives a whole new perspective on first relationships (and that neither of them ended up finding true love in their first love was kind of unraveling). 

It's cute that she tries to set her up with her nephew. I'm so glad however that Lara Jean ended up with the guy I was rooting for from the beginning. Not that I didn't like John - I adored him - but Peter just has that je-ne-sais-quoi
