She and Peter were just pretending. Except suddenly they weren’t. Now Lara Jean is more confused than ever.

Book Review Overview:

  • Lara Jean is my spirit animal
  • I can’t get enough of the Song sisters!

I bought a book! An actual hardcover book! Despite wanting to support the publishing industry, I admit I’m a huge fan of the library. So you know it’s a big deal when I actually buy a copy of a book. After months of waiting, I finally got to read P.S. I STILL LOVE YOU by Jenny Han, the sequel to To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny HanTO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE by Jenny Han Book Review
Series: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, #1
Publication Date: April 15th 2014 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Rating: – Exceeds Expectations |

Book Summary: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister’s ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.

Book Review Overview:

  • I love the Song girls
  • One of the few love triangles / love squares that I don’t have a problem with
  • Looking forward to the sequel! I want it NOW!!!

First of all, let me just say that TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE by Jenny Han must be some kind of amazing to bring me back from the blogging dead.

I took advantage of the e-book sale and bought a copy for $1.99. I don’t usually buy e-books (libraries, not piracy) but I’ve been putting off from reading this book way too long. Despite the great reviews from other fellow bloggers, I have to admit that I was still skeptical before picking up the book. As you may recall, I had a love/hate relationship with Jenny Han’s previous series. Much to my surprise, TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE by Jenny Han completely blew me away. After reading so many Jenny Han books, this is the first book that I’ve really, really enjoyed.

Illusions of Fate by Kiersten WhiteILLUSIONS OF FATE by Kiersten White Book Review
Publication Date: September 9th 2014 by HarperTeen
Rating: – Exceeds Expectations |

Book Summary: “I did my best to keep you from crossing paths with this world. And I shall do my best to protect you now that you have.”

Jessamin has been an outcast since she moved from her island home of Melei to the dreary country of Albion. Everything changes when she meets Finn, a gorgeous, enigmatic young lord who introduces her to the secret world of Albion’s nobility, a world that has everything Jessamin doesn’t—power, money, status…and magic. But Finn has secrets of his own, dangerous secrets that the vicious Lord Downpike will do anything to possess. Unless Jessamin, armed only with her wits and her determination, can stop him.

Illusions of Fate by Kiersten White Book Review Overview:

  • World-building takes a while to develop but is worth the wait
  • Charming characters
  • One of the few standalones that I wish was either longer or was part of a series; companion novel please!!

Kiersten White’s Illusions of Fate is a great light historical fantasy – without it actually being set in the past. The time period of the novel is based on Edwardian England, but the novel takes place in the fictional nation of Albion. As a reader, I got all the best things of Edwardian England such as fancy dresses and galas and cute teacups, but I also got the great world that White created.

Jessamin leaves Melei, her island home, to pursue her studies at a boarding school in Albion. Jessamin struggles to survive in the foreign city and is subjected to discrimination because of her heritage. Jessamin juggles her schoolwork along with the chores at the hotel, where she works in exchange for room and board. But when she meets Finn, her whole life changes as she learns about the hidden magical world within Albion’s gentry.
