Review by

"To All The Boys I've Loved Before... All 5 of you... You suck" pretty much sums this book up. It's a light read with good pacing and has a certain charm that keeps you hooked throughout.The main character Lara-Jean is a bit too uptight for me to immerse myself in her completely but her development throughout the story holds everything together. Plus her kind of stuck-up attitude is part of who she is and part of her nourished upbringing within two cultures. I find the older sister, Margot, to be insufferable and I almost tried to pretend she didn't exist is some places. Kitty though, Kitty was one of the only characters I loved in this along with Peter. Those two kept me reading.So Lara-Jean writes love letters to all the guys she's had feelings for, I won't say loved because it's incredibly naïve to class what she felt as love rather than adoration. She keeps these letters in a hat box her mother gave her and then one day they are all send to the five guys in question and "all hell breaks loose".A bit dramatic? Yup exactly but somehow it's still a charming story. It's a bit of a clash in the character since Lara-Jean is so uptight about real life love and the language in the letters aren't very consistent to her character who is shy and revolves solely around her family.I don't know, I just felt that the story was a bit forced and inconsistent but I guess that's a plot tool to highlight the changes within the main character.So much teen angst and naïve female protagonist, love triangles and mean girls just makes this a very typical YA for me so it didn't really stand out or bring anything new to the table for me but still enjoyed it enough to fly through it. I will most probably read the mext book for more doses of Peter and Kitty :)Struggling between 3-4 stars so I'll settle for 3.5 mostly for the two characters I fell in love with and the captivating writing style.
