To All the Boys I Loved Before by Jenny Han is the first book of a three-part series. It’s told from the perspective of Lara Jean Covey, a high school girl desperate for love. However, Lara Jean has a secret: love letters she’s written to each of her past loves, hidden away so nobody finds them. That is until the letters are sent out, and Lara Jean is sent into a whirlwind of confessions, chaos, and a bright side at the end. While apologizing to the recipients, one lover strikes a deal with Covey, which will flip her world upside-down. Jenny Han doesn’t disappoint with these books. She does a great job of not only pulling you in with her compelling storylines and cringy yet cute characters, but she also does an amazing job of continuing the story through three books, all of which seem to get better and better as you read them. As someone who is a sucker for romcoms, I loved these books. On top of that, Netflix came out with adaptations of all three books, which suffice for your needs to see this book come to life. I recommend this book if you need a romantic comedy that will keep you reading!
