Soon, Lily and her anonymous pen pal are exchanging full-on letters—sharing secrets, recommending bands, and opening up to each other. Lily realizes she’s kind of falling for this letter writer. Only, who is he? As Lily attempts to unravel the mystery and juggle school, friends, crushes, and her crazy family, she discovers that matters of the heart can’t always be spelled out…
Rating: 5 STARS!!! 😍
Since Lily writes letters to her pen pal, I thought that my spoiler-free review should be in a letter to you! I was inspired to do this after reading Carissa’s review on To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. Here is a link to her amazing blog, which is called Rubbish Talk! Also, I decided to write it in italics because that’s how it is in the book, so I hope that it doesn’t give you a headache when you read it! Please let me know if it does and I will change it! ❤️
OH. MY. GOSH. OH MY GOSH!!! I LOVED THIS BOOK! LOVED IT! It’s officially my new favorite Kasie West book! Actually, maybe EVER! It was so sweet! Also, speaking of Kasie West, I only have to read Fame, Fate, and the First Kiss before I accomplish my mission of reading all of her books! I’m so excited! 😋
Anywho, back to this amazing story! It was perfect! The plot was so intriguing, the characters were absolutely amazing, and I loved the ending! When I first read the synopsis, I immediately thought of Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer, which (I’m pretty sure, if I remember correctly!) is told in two different perspectives, Juliette and Declan. So the reader knows that they are writing to each other, but they don’t, which I didn’t like at all! It made me so anxious! Also, the author says that they are writing to each other in the synopsis of the book, so don’t worry! That wasn’t a spoiler! 😄 On the other hand, P.S. I Like You is only in Lily’s point of view, which was so much better! I loved not knowing who it was with her, and when she did know, it was fun to see how she reacted and what she did afterward! That’s why I enjoyed reading this book so much! It was a mystery! I didn’t know who it was either! 😄
I also loved reading about Lily, who was a really interesting protagonist! She was kind, funny, and very relatable as well! Furthermore, her friendship with Isabel was really sweet, and I feel like it added a lot to the book! But my favorite part was…THE ROMANCE!!! Who’s surprised? 😂 It was so cute! I was practically melting! It was just…AH!!! The best! Overall, I would definitely recommend this book to those who like cute, YA contemporary novels, enjoy all things music (Lily is an aspiring songwriter!), and love Kasie West’s books! 😄
Thank you so much for reading and I hope that you have a wonderful day!
P.S. Read the rest of this post if you HAVE READ THE BOOK! Or don’t want to read it! They aren’t really spoilers, but they kind of are? Just read at your own risk! 😄
This is the quote that I wanted to use at the beginning, but then I realized that it had POTENTIAL to be a spoiler! I had to fan myself for a minute after reading it! 😂
“‘So you think I’m hot?’ Cade’s eyes sparkled.
‘Doesn’t every girl?’
It surprised me when his cheeks turned a light shade of pink. I wasn’t sure why that embarrassed him in any way. I was positive he already knew it. He ran one hand through his hair. Then he said, almost too quiet for me to hear, ‘You’re not every girl.’”(West 185).
Also, I totally thought it was the rabbit, not her brother! 😂
