But my desperation to read it skyrocketed when I read the synopsis. I lived this life (studying abroad, trying to start over, being too shy) so I figured I would love it.

“Nothing is impossible…when you’re me.”

 

 

 

Long time, no see. Classes kicked my you-know-what this semester and I had zero time for reading. Tonight I finished my first book since January and it was a spin-off to one of my all-time favorite series: the Lux series.

If you don’t like aliens, a story that will make you grin ear-to-ear, or an author who can write leading men like it’s second nature then this isn’t the book for you.

So much of love is chance. There’s something scary and wonderful about that.

 

I’ve been absolutely obsessed with To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before since the day the movie was released on Netflix. I only recently read the first book and since August I’ve been dying to get my hands on the sequel, needing to know how Lara Jean’s story continues. And was it ever worth the wait? Yes.

After seeing the movie, I had to read the book and I am so glad I did. Continue reading “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, #1)”
