This is one of the cutest books I’ve ever read and whenever I re-read it I fall in love with the characters again. Set in Paris, a high school senior from the States slowly falls for her new friend, a charismatic and handsome British boy. It’s a lovely story that will make you feel like you know these characters in real life. The best part is that it’s the first book in a three-novel series by Perkins! You can pick up the sequels Lola and the Boy Next Door and Isla and the Happily Ever After at Indigo.

This funny love story stars Lara Jean and all the letters she’s written to her past crushes. Lara Jean is a lovable and quirky character, so there’s never a dull moment. Not only is this a fun book to read, but it’s the first in a three-part series and it’s being turned into a movie!

I’m not ashamed to say that Kirby wrote a beautiful story which brought me to tears. This book is sweet, yet heartbreaking at the same time because of the circumstances of the main character. Quinn Sullivan was so completely in love, but her love died. Then she fell for someone else, someone she was only supposed to watch from afar. If you’re into sweet and slow love stories, then this is the book for you.

These romantic books will make you smile and fall in love with the well-written characters, so make sure to pick one up at the bookstore!
