Things We Saw Today: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before Teaser Looks Adorable
I am a huge fan of Jenny Han’s YA To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy. I started reading it a month ago and instantly was drawn into the orbit of Lara Jean Song Covey, the mixed-race Korean protagonist.
It’s such a charming narrative about a young girl going through life with some intense crushes. Lara Jean writes love letters to all the boys she has ever had a crush on, then keeps them in a teal hatbox given to her by her late mother. Everything is going well until one day, the letters get loose and those private crushes filled with cuteness are exposed to the world and all the embarrassment that comes with it.
Nothing like every guy you’ve ever liked knowing your innermost thoughts about them all at once.
The book is a great read filled with some amazing sisterhood and a dope protagonist. Since Netflix’s Set It Up has basically relaunched the rom-com, I’m excited to see the streaming network tackle this sweet read.
