It’s Smart Bitches Book Club selection time! As I mentioned earlier this month, we’re going to be alternating Movie Matinee selections with Book Club selections this year. And the Smart Bitches Book Club will be a mix of new and older titles so as to increase the likelihood that the books we’re discussing will be in your local library.
Our February selection: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han!
This YA romance was published in 2014, and it’s appeared on many recommendation lists since then. Here’s the cover copy:
What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them…all at once?
Sixteen-year-old Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she’s written. 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. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control.
I have heard a number of people suggest that it helps to write letters you never send to process emotions. Now I’m going to paranoid even thinking about writing a letter, let alone five.
I hope whether you’ve already read this book or been curious about it, you’ll give it a try!
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before ( A | BN | K | G | iB | Au | WorldCat ) is available at all vendors. And, given that it was a bestseller, it should be available at most libraries! It’s also currently on sale for $2.99!
Join us Monday February 27 at 8:30pm ET for our live book club chat! We’ll all be here in a live text window talking about the book and our experiences with it. And if you remember the book club chats from prior years, you’ll know we bring beverages and the silliness increases as the discussion goes on.
Happy reading – and see you on the 27th!
