But one day Laura Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister's ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Laura Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.

The lovely Sofia Li from Loving the Language of Literacy  was awesome enough to do a buddy read for this book that I've been dying to read. As my first Jenny Han I had no idea what to expect, but I did have some pretty high expectations. There is really too much to be said about this book, but here are all my thoughts!

This book totally stands out on my bookshelf, not only because the cover is so beautiful, but because it's made such a huge impact on my love life (if I even have one) and relationships in general. For the non-spoilery part of this review, I will say that it's definitely a Jenny Han book that want to start with. I feel like after I read this book, I kind of understood Han's entire life. It's like she was writing about her life, her family, her past crushes in this entire story, and it felt very true and honest. Development of plot is phenomenal and, boy, can Jenny Han really make a reader smile and smirk at the small, little things that take place in this book. Want to read this book? GO FOR IT 100%!  

Some things about this book really ticket me off. By reading the synopsis of the book we know that someone sent her love letters out to the recipients, right? But the main problem I had was that the main character, Laura Jean, had no intention on finding out who sent the letters. I don't know why it bothered me so much but I just thought that in her shoes, I would be on a man-hunt to find out who would be that invasive as to send my own written love letters out there!!! It was weird about how calm she really was. In the end it was revealed anyways, but I still would have liked to have seen some effort there. I mean, they were the love letters that changed her entire life! 

People say they hate Peter. I loved Peter. I loved loved loved him, maybe even more than I loved Josh. Peter was hilarious and smoking hot! He was such an enjoyable character, even though Josh was the more sincere one of the bunch. I can't help but say that I hated Margot's character. I feel like if she wasn't such a dark cloud over Laura's life, Laura would have been happy with Josh a long time ago. But you can't blame the heart because the heart wants what it wants *goes into singing the Selena Gomez song*
It's scary when it's real. When it's not just thinking about a person, but, like having a real live person in front of you, with, like, expectations. And wants."

- Lara Jean, pg. 192
