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…
I love this book. LOVE it.
I went into P.S. I Like You with mediocre expectations just hoping for a fun, fast read. And it is definitely fun and fast. But it's also so much more than that.
This book is so charming that I probably have a legit crush on it now. I found myself openly smiling while reading many, many times. And yes, it may be a bit predictable, but it still caused that fluttery-heart feeling I get during a good love story, even if I know where it's going.
The two main characters are insanely loveable, and the story is neither too shallow, which I despise in YA contemporary, nor is it to deep. I never once felt like it was dragging me along. I couldn't turn pages fast enough. I really loved the witty banter between characters. The main protagonist, Lily, was so much fun to read.
Overall, this book was incredibly delightful. I’d go so far as to say it's my new favorite YA contemporary. I can definitely see myself picking P.S. I Like You up again many times in the future. It's on sale now and is a perfect summer read, I highly recommend that everyone pick up a copy!
