Book vs. Movie: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

Hello there!

As most of you may know the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before movie was released on Netflix this month. I saw the trailer before it came out and I thought it looked interesting, I had not read the book yet so I decided to read the book before watching the movie. In this blog post, I will give you all, my thoughts on both the book and the movie. 

The Book:images

I really enjoyed the book which for me YA contemporary is a hit or miss for me. I either really love it or I really hate it. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before was a hit for me. It was just a nice fun light read and I had so much fun reading it. I really enjoyed the sister bond in this book, as well as the romance, was really cute. I think that the romance was a nice pace where it didn’t feel forced or rushed which I think made it feel a bit more realistic. I don’t know what else to say about the book spoiling it so I will leave it at that.

The Movie: Unknown

This was a really good adaptation of a book. I have seen adaptations go really wrong and I feel that To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before did a good job of keeping all the wonderful elements from the book as well as making it different and new. There were some things that were not included that I wish had been included but that is what happens when they make a movie from a book. Also, the romance felt more rushed but again movies go by faster than books so they have speed things up a bit more. I did enjoy that when things hit the fan the movie did it a bit different and I felt that it really worked out really well. It added a bit more dramatics which I think worked for a movie.


Book Rating: 4/5 stars

Movie Rating: 4/5 stars

I did film a video of me going into more detail about the book and movie with a section with spoilers so be on the lookout for that to a bit more of what I thought.

Until next time book nerds,
