It’s the end of yet another amazing year and now it’s time for the New Year, New Me resolutions. Reading as always is going to be a thing that I won’t stop doing and what doesn’t change in a new year are the number of amazing books that come out. I am super excited for a fun-filled year of reading!
Let me just tell you right now, this film is solid 5 ⭐ , gold, coming of age material.
Based on a novel by the same name, penned by Jenny Han, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is a story of a lonely half-Asian, half-American teen, Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor) who is used to living life vicariously through her elder sister Margot Covey (Janel Parrish).

It’s summer time. La di da di daaa. Summer Summer Summer!
Summer is that time of the year when the maximum number of travel plans are in motion. Be it to a nearby city or across the oceans, to a new country or even a different continent.

“A prince may be the subject of myth and legend,” he explains, “but he can’t live in them. He should live in the real world, where he can create them.” He looks solemn. “You should pay less mind to fairy tales, Elian, or that’s all you’ll become.”
When he leaves, I think about whether that would be awful, or beautiful. Could it really be such a bad thing, to become a story whispered to children in the dead of night? A song they sing to one another while they play.
The literary fiction world is being dominated by YA authors popping in on the scene left right and center. Amidst this overcrowded genre, the sub-genre of retold fairy tales has carved a niche for itself and authors like Sarah J. Maas and Renee Ahdieh have ensured that mark won’t fade away with the passing of time. Continue reading “Sirens, Pirates, Mermen and More…”
