What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them... all at once?
Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren't love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she's written. One for every boy she's ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean's love life goes from imaginary to out of control.
If love is like a possession, maybe my letters are like my exorcisms.
My letters set me free. Or at least they're supposed to.

This book really lived up my reading mood! It was so fluffy and cute and adorable, I devoured it pretty fast ♥
So Lara Jean always wrote a goodbye letter to the boy that she loved. She poured her feeling through words when she wanted to say goodbye to her feeling, to end it. She wrote it for herself until suddenly the 5 letters she had written were sent to the boys. How humiliating it was because some of them were still around! And one of them was her sister's ex-boyfriend, Josh.
It was funny how Lara Jean tried to avoid Josh. I would do the same thing if I were her. Josh is a sweet guy, he is nice and very close to Lara's family. Lara and Josh are good friends that she could tell him everything except for her feeling. But something change when Josh gets the letter that is actually pointed to Lara herself.
The other boy is Peter Kavinsky, a popular guy who also just broke up with his also popular girlfriend. Lara had a crush on him when they were in 7th grade. They don't like each other now, but their interaction are so cute and funny! I like that Peter isn't shown as a perfect and everything good like usual lead boy character. He could be so annoying and funny that you would forget that he is gorgeously handsome. Plus point, he once wore apron which I love.
The other 3 boys had minor parts so far. And not all the letters were shown. I felt a little bit sad because I actually love Lara's letters and looked forward to read all of them. They're so cute and as innocent as how a teenage girl falls in love.
I love the family dynamic here! I have 3 sisters and I felt so related with Song girls' relationship. I'm kinda wanting to call me and my sisters as Fiona girls lol. Their father is also perfect father! He keeps Korean culture to the family after the mother was dead, even though mostly about foods. Anyway there were many foods mentioned in this book that made me hungry.
