RATING: 5 out of 5
Jenny Han is the Queen of Contemporary. Her novels are just so my type. Even if they aren’t fantasy, they feel magical every time I read them. Especially, the romance. OMG! So fluffy! I love it!
What I love about her novels most are the characters. They are so unique and very distinct. Lara Jean is very different from Belly (the protagonist from the ‘Summer’ Trilogy), yet there is this one similarity—the stubbornness. Among the two, though, I found myself rooting more for Lara Jean. She’s the perfect epitome of a teenage girl in love in high school. The relationship between her and her sisters was greatly written.
Aside from LJ, Kitty was my second favourite. She was such a little devil. I loved it everytime she talks. I loved her attitude and her mature way of thinking. Also, I would never mess with her when she watches her TV shows. She might do something to me that we’d both regret.
And the boys—gosh, Jenny Han writes such sweet boys. I loved how she described them. I loved their personality. Peter Kavinsky was an instant fictional boyfriend, so was John Ambrose McCLaren.
Honestly, while reading, I was silently wishing that John was gay. But, nope. I didn’t even know why I thought of that. By the way, I hope Jenny Han would write a story with a gay protagonist. I will definitely read it.
Magical, honest, and sweet—this novel had me squealing like a girl in love—like Lara Jean. I definitely recommend this book to everyone!
