TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE (Susan Johnson, 2018)

SPOILER ALERT!!

Considering that I’m two decades beyond its target market, I probably enjoyed this cute YA fantasy way more than I should have.

Lana Condor (who resembled Charice in her Sunshine Corazon days) was terrific as Lara Jean, a realistic introverted girl who would choose to spend her Saturday nights watching reruns of Golden Girls. Who could relate?

I was very invested in the characters here (even if I felt sad that Aidan Shaw was already playing a father of three) that I actually wish they turned this into a series instead (I want to know more about those other boys!!). Now I really need to read that novel by Jenny Han.

Rating: ★★★☆☆
