It’s been so long since I hosted one of these! The last readalong that I hosted was for Six of Crows, and it started in December 2017 and ended in January of this year! So, wow, it’s really been a while. I am super happy to be hosting another one though, especially for a book that’s been on my TBR for quite some time. For those of you who haven’t heard, the rights to Jenny Han’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before were bought by Netflix, and their film adaptation of the book comes out on August 17. So, I thought that it was finally time to read the book, and I had a feeling that a lot of you might feel the same! I ran some polls and with over 80% of those who voted saying they’re interested … here we are! Please be sure to read everything carefully, and I hope that you’ll join us!

One for every boy she’s ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only.
