Those of you that have been living under a rock for the past two months, you won’t know what ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” refers to. I’ll enlighten you.
“To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” is a teen rom-com that was released on Netflix back in August this year. The film centres around the Korean-American, Lara Jean Song Covey who writes a love letter when she has a crush, and she’s happy with this coping method until the letters find their way to the boys to which they are addressed. Let me tell you, I adored this film. It’s the right amount of cutesy romance without leaving you wanting to heave at the cringiness of couple antics. I loved it so much that I have requested the book series in my local library, and this upcoming blog series is going to based around Lara Jean’s letters.
The upcoming posts will each be a letter to a boy I’ve “loved”. So, yes, this is the part where I kiss and tell – be prepared. However, unlike Lara Jean, I won’t be using the names of these boys for their sakes and my own, and the letters are not necessarily love letters anymore. Many are like the crushes that Lara Jean wrote about and a couple are rather more tragic or angry. I’d be interested to know, for those who know me personally, if you can work out who each letter is really addressed to. I also would be willing to receive replies from these boys if they so wish.
The letters will be as follows (I’ll link to each letter as they get posted):
- To, the first boy I ever fancied.
- To, my first “boyfriend”.
- To, the boy I didn’t know.
- To, the boy I give too much credit.
- To, the (literal) Sex God.
- To, the boy we admired from afar.
- To, the geeky boy I fancied.
- To, the boy I was too anxious to date.
- To, the flirtationship.
- To, the boy in the leopard-print dress.
Love, Grace x
