Summary (via Goodreads): 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.
I listened to this audiobook on a road trip to visit my family. I immediately loved it. The narrator was fantastic, the content was amazing, and I couldn’t stop laughing, swooning, and falling in love while I was driving. People probably thought I was crazy, but listening to this audiobook to pass my 8 or so hour car ride (to and from visiting family) was so worth it! Definitely 5 out of 5 stars.
Lara Jean was an outstanding main character. I really liked her family as well, especially Kitty. Listening to this story definitely made my drive go faster, and I was upset that I had to wait a couple days to listen to the second half of the book when I left to go home. I just wanted to keep listening to the entire book in one sitting.
Peter Kavinsky was a great book boyfriend, even though he had some douche-y moments. Listening to the interactions between Lara Jean and Peter were some of the most entertaining parts of the audiobook. Since I’d been listening to the audiobook while driving, I wasn’t able to keep track of any of my favorite lines. But if an audiobook can make me laugh, swoon, and squeal without caring if anyone sees me, it’s got to be a good!
The cliffhanger ending made me want to read book two in the series right away, so I was happy that P.S. I Still Love You was already published.
Final note: Amazing audiobook. Such a cute story with great characters and an unique plot that first made me choose the book to listen to in the first place. Whether or not you’ve read this book before, give the audiobook a try!
