Hi Everyone! I have our last Book of the Month post for July for you today. It’s book review time!
While Lily is spacing out in Chemistry one day, she picks up her pencil and scribbles a line from one of her favorite songs on the desk. The next day, someone else has written back to her on the desk! Soon enough Lily and the mystery student are exchanging notes, and lyrics, and even sharing secrets. When Lily finds out that her anonymous pen pal is a guy, she’s flustered — and kind of feels like she’s falling for him. She and her best friend set out to unravel the identity of the letter writer — but when the truth is revealed, the guy is the LAST person Lily could have ever imagined it to be. Now that Lily knows the truth, can she untangle her feelings and gather the courage to listen to her heart?
From beloved author Kasie West (The Distance Between Us) comes an utterly charming story about mixed messages, missed connections, and the magic of good old-fashioned secret admirer notes
I have read a few Kasie West novels and have adored each of them, so when I saw P.S. I Like You on Goodreads I had to add it to my TBR list and pre-order right away!! And I am happy to say that in no way was I disappointed with that decision. P.S I Like You is an adorable read which had me grinning, sighing and clutching my IPad all at once. P.S. if a lovely, fast paced read, which I will no-doubt, read again and again!
Whilst I adored the whole book, the letters really made P.S. an outstanding read. It was a unique twist, which really allowed me as a reader to experience the characters, Lily and the mystery person, on a whole new level. I could probably read a book full of those letters alone!
The build up of the romance was done really well. It wasn’t immediate “love at first sight” which I am happy about. I’m not sure how to describe the romance other than it made me swoon more than once. Both Lily and her love interest were flawed characters that made quick judgements, however they truly cared about each other, which was wonderful to read-especially when we got to see them build each other up and support each other.
I can’t write this review and not mention Lily’s family. They are a wonderful, in your face type of family and honestly I loved every time they entered the scene. You could see that they all loved each other and genuinely wanted the best for their family. I can admit most of the books I read don’t have the best family situations so P.S. was like a breath of fresh air!
Altogether, P.S. I Like You is a must read for all contemporary romance fans. If you want a book that will make you giggle and swoon at the same time as well as well as allow you to forge deep connections with amazing characters pick this one up today!
