This was a surprisingly enjoyable read, easy, relatable and likable characters and a story that warmed my heart. I needed a light and fun read, and this filled that need perfectly. I found myself drawn in to Lara Jeans world and her predicament right from page one and unable to put the book down, read it in about a day, which would be the fastest read I’ve done for quite a while!
I loved that Lara Jean is half-Korean, and those little details about her father trying his hardest to cook Korean food, and other aspects of their culture just really added to the story. I also enjoyed that the story revolved around the three sisters, and how they cope with their mother’s death, and then the Margot’s departure off to school. It made me more than a little wistful for a sister or two of my own.
The progression of developing feelings towards the male characters in the story was right on point, and had me experiencing all the feels right up to the last page. I was going to read something else next, but find that I have no choice but to read the next in the series. And probably the next after that!
