To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before – Book and Movie Review

Never heard if that book?! Where do you live then? On another planet? No worries I’ve got it decoded here!

1.Book Review ——

I read it’s E-Books recently (where do you suppose will I get a paperback in this lockdown 😑)and believe me it’s that sassy Teenage story. Like, you would enjoy every part of it and its hard to put the book down. Now let’s talk about the book in detail –

Plot

This story revolves around a girl – Lara Jean who falls in this puzzled maze of Love. As a child, Lara Jean has written 5 letters to her 5 crushes; but had never sent them. She was too shy for that but as she becomes 16, she believes that the Letters hold a great power – It helps her to just let out all her feelings. In the words of Lara Jean – “Whenever, I read my letters, I get to know how powerful our emotions can be.”

Talking about the setting – She has 2sisters and a dad(her mom died when she was young). So her older sister Margot (who is 2years older than Lara) took care of the house till now. But she decides to go to college in Scotland to study Anthropology. So now Lara Jean is the older sister and the role model for her younger sister – Kitty (6th grade)

The main characters in this story besides the above mentioned people are – Josh(their neighbour and Margot’s Boyfriend) , Peter Kavinsky, Genevieve (Peter’s Girlfriend) and Chris ( Genevieve’s cousin and Lara Jean’s Best Friend) . So the story unveils itself as the 5 letters gets posted by someone anonymous and 5 of her PAST crushes get the letters at the SAME TIME.

I got goosebumps when I read it. I mean this is the worst nightmare for any teenager! 😅 So as the story continues Lara Jean becomes more and more messed up and many things await that she didn’t have a clue of!

It’s a MUST READ book. (If you love Young Adult genre) . I recently read it’s E-Book. Here’s a link to that –

2.Movie Review —-

I watched it’s Movie yesterday and it’s my HONEST REVIEW about it!

The movie to be honest was good. It was released on Netflix so of course it received a lot of appreciation and many of my friends were talking about it for days. But here’s what I think – There’s no rule to like what everyone does. Even Lara Jean said it ! 😉

What I liked about the Movie —

1. The movie’s Star cast was really very good and they took the actors as described in the book.

From Left – Josh, Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky

2. Some scenes were very precise about whatever was written in the book and they added some humour in the movie which increased the fun!

This is what Chris said to Lara Jean’s father 😂

3. And who doesn’t love “I like me better” Song by Lauv? They just inserted the right song at the right place! 😻

What I didn’t like about the movie—-

(Alert – If you haven’t read the book and want to read it in future then don’t read this section. Some spoilers might ruin your reading experience!)

1. When the hell did Genevieve snatch Lara Jean’s favourite Scrunchie from Peter and showed off at the end of the ski trip?! May be I am blind but millions of those who have read the book aren’t! I mean what’s the point if adding some unnecessary scenes instead of adding the already mentioned stories in the book?

2. And when did Peter shout in front of the school not to bother Lara Jean about all that happened in the Ski Trip?! I mean of course it’s a good initiative and a good way to represent how good Peter is…. But it’s false. He never did that. They didn’t at all have that talk and those pictures in front of Lara Jean’s Locker.

3. Scenes I wished were added in the movie which were there in the book –

  • Recital Party mess scene
  • Going to buy antique chairs with Peter
  • Dance Battle scene
  • Kitty getting a Dog (at last!)
  • The story behind her Mom’s death
  • How Genevieve and Lara used to be BFFs

Of course a 1hour 30 minutes movie can’t have so much filled in it…. But I guess some part could have been added. In short, I LOVED THE MOVIE. {Not everything is perfect} And the Book is 💜

I am currently reading it’s 2nd part – “P.S-I still Love you” and will definitely watch it’s movie. And guess what? I will be writing a review in it too 😉 Do let me know what you think about the movie and the book if you have watched or read it…. 😻

5 must read Books during this Lockdown

Bored in this lockdown?! Of course you are! Then I have got the right thing for you organized if you are a bookholic–

1. Animal Farm

Never heard of it before? Then you live under a rock! No worries I’ll tell you why it’s so famous and why it goes in the must-read list. It’s a story about an Animal farm, where the animals break free from the master and live an independent life. So what’s interesting? Well, every of it’s animal represents types of people in our society. This is why this books is considered to be one if the best book of Sociology.

2. Aristotle and Dante Discover The Secrets Of The Universe

Stop before you judge this book as a scientific one! Now, if you are a lover of Young-Adult genre…. Then it’s a MUST READ. This book is the winner of many awards including the Pulitzer Prize 🏆. This book features to boys named Aristotle and Dante who become best friends. What’s strange is – they are complete different traits and habits! Yet, they continue their journey in knowing the world better but little do they know what’s gonna get unveiled in Their Worlds!

3. Maze Runner

I bet you have never read any fictional book as thrilling as this! (Let me exclude Harry Potter or your fav boook) Like it got my heart beat fastened in EVERY SINGLE PAGE! So this book is basically about a group of boys who land one by one in a unknown place(The Glade) where they are surrounded by a maze which changes it’s pattern EVERY SINGLE NIGHT! And they try to solve the pattern snd try to get out of the maze. But watch out! There’s lot more snd I ain’t giving you spoilers. So you better grab your phone and start reading it’s E-book . Note – Read the book before watching it’s movie. You’ll regret if you go the other way round….

4. Everything Everything

This is my fav book and I have like read it 20-30 times. So, what’s so great about this book? Everything ! 😂 Yeah, this books might seem common to you guys but if you try thinking it over you will reach to amazing results. This book is about a girl who suffers from SCID and hasn’t gone out if her house for 18YEARS. (And we are bored with just 1month of lockdown 😒) Anyways, so her life gets interesting when a boy moves next door which makes her realise about the outer world and makes her desperate! Will she go out and does something happen to her ? Read it and you’ll love it! Note- Same as the above one’s . Read it before watching it’s movie.

5. The Book Thief

History. Yes. This book might seem voluminous but it’s just worth a read. It’s about a girl who is a victim of Hitler and his harsh treatments! No, she is not a Jew. But she lives in a Foster family. Even her family are not Jews. So what’s wrong? Her loved ones are……Her bestfriend, her father’s friends…
