When the ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ film hit Netflix, the book blogging world went a little crazy (in a good way). I had never actually heard of the book before and don’t often invest my interest based on hype, but with everyone’s beaming smiles and a quick read of a really intriguing synopsis I decided to watch the film. See what it’s all about.
Well I loved the film – it’s perfect for when I’m in an intense chick flick mood. It doesn’t happen often but I have an old faithful list I pull out when it does, and you can bet ‘To All the Boys I’ve loved Before’ is the latest addition.
Thanks to many wonderful bloggers throughout the book world I also decided to read the book. To my surprise, it actually made me miss being a teenager in college – just a little! It’s an easy, relaxed read. But it also didn’t fail to make me laugh. As expected, there was more depth to the storyline than during the film which I really enjoyed, as I absolutely fell in love with the Song sisters. It was perfect for me, as I settled down to read on a rainy Sunday.
I haven’t been able to decide which I like better between the film and book. I certainly preferred the characters in the film, however the book was more realistic. The film really displayed the best in every character whereas the book was more open to their flaws. In a way the book was more relatable and nostalgic for me. If you have read the book and seen the film, let me know which you preferred!
And that’s all for this post! I decided to write a post instead of doing the usual video review, as I knew I wouldn’t have too much to say. Really, I just wanted to spend half an hour having my fan girl moment and quickly adding my thoughts to the already huge response! Hope you enjoyed chilling with me regardless.
What’s everyone’s plans for the rest of this week? c:
