My Thoughts on ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’

First of all, I have to say I absolutely LOVE Rom-Coms, they are feel good movies that can snap you out of any rut or bad mood, even if they aren’t all that realistic. Last week, Netflix released their adaptation to Jenny Han’s YA novel (which I will admit I haven’t read, but I purchased it for the Library I was working in when it was released) and I am not the only one who has feelings for this movie!


Yes, I will acknowledge that I am pushing 30 and am in a very happy relationship, but that is not what Rom-Coms are for! Even if the main characters are set in high school (Sixteen Candles is one of my all-time favourites!), this movie still makes me feel all mushy inside and I feel as if that was the goal!

If you’ve been living under a rock, I’ll give you a quick synopsis – Laura Jean Covey is a shy Junior who writes secret letters to the boys she’s had crushes on, and hides them away with no intention of anyone ever reading them. Somehow (I won’t spoil how) the letters get out, and five letters have been sent to boys Laura Jean has loved.

Unfortunately for Laura Jean, one of the letters is to her long time friend Josh, who happens to be the very recent ex boyfriend of her older sister Margot.

In order to avoid anything with Josh, Laura Jean starts a fake relationship with one of the other boys that received a letter, Peter Kavinsky (I’ll just leave this here)

Needless to say, their fake relationship gets a little more complicated than they had agreed on, but only to the enjoyment of the audience! Before I get too spoiler-ish, I’m going to give you the top 6 reasons why this movie is great!

  1. It makes you feel good
  2. Laura Jean has the cutest outfits
  3. Peter Kavinsky (Twitter, Buzzfeed, Tumblr and Pop Sugar are all obsessed!)
  4. John Corbett as Laura Jean’s dad
  5. Kitty
  6. This scene between Peter and Kitty

So go watch it! If you have, what did you think about it?

Until next time,

    1. It was so cute! Of course I haven’t read the book yet, but I’d assume as with all book adaptations, I’d take it as it’s own creation 😃


  2. As someone in her 30’s (31 😏), I’m a sucker for rom-coms even those based in high school. I watched this film yesterday and really enjoyed it. Definitely worth viewing for those 6 points you’ve mentioned especially no.3 😉
