I am internally squealing over the adorableness that is this book! It reminded me a bit of Jenny Han’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series. P.S. I Like You was cute, funny, and refreshingly light compared to many of the books I’ve been reading lately and I couldn’t put it down. I finished this gem in a day! Kasie West is a new author to me, but I am now dedicated to finding more of her books and including them to my library. If this book says anything at all about her writing I know I am in for more fun, easy, and relatable stories. Not only was this book light hearted and incredibly cute but it was perfect for all those high schoolers out there getting ready to go back to school as August comes to a close. Quite frankly it would be a perfect book if you were right in the middle of the school year. It gives life back to the good old fashion hand written word and makes the idea of approaching high school romance so much more realistic. All I can say is I wish I had read this while in high school, I think it would have given me the courage to write the guy I was crushing on a note!
Colleen Hoover’s newest book hits all the emotions once again but this time in a way that is so honest and real that this has to be my favorite book by her yet. Surprisingly I didn’t sob the way I usually do in her novels. Don’t get me wrong tears were shed, but I feel that this book was so raw and empowering that by the end I didn’t feel the need to ugly cry. I felt that I now could face the world with a whole new understanding on a situation that effects millions of men and women. Colleen Hoover was not only able to turn a very personal and emotional part of her life into a story, but make it into a powerful learning experience. It allows those who have been through this to feel understood and for those who haven’t gone through it to understand a little bit more the minds of those who have gone through it. If by some weird chance you walked away from this book not liking it, I feel you have missed the point entirely. If you haven’t read this book yet, please do yourself a favor and pick it up, I think every single person needs to read it.
3/5 stars. This review will contain spoilers, but I will let you know when spoilers are about to show up so you can stop reading! Guys, this is really hard for me to say, so first I’ll say this, I grew up with Harry Potter and of course so did many of you. I grew up reading the books, I was literally the same age as the actors and I watched them get older as I got older. I’d dream of being on set of Harry Potter, that I would get cast as a role in the movies, that I’d be part of the magic. I’d dream about my letter arriving by owl letting me know I was to attend Hogwarts. Harry Potter holds a very special place in my heart, so to say I didn’t thoroughly enjoy and love this latest installment is as much a bummer to me as it probably to you reading this verdict.
