While you wait for the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before movie

SHARE

August!!! Why are you so far away?! After the cutest teen rom-com trailer ever (go on, you can watch it again, we’ll be here) released yesterday, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before movie seems WAY too far away.

These hella swoony reads might just make the wait for Lara Jean’s story just a little easier to handle.

 

My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

MyLifeNextDoor

Lara Jean has her Josh, and Samantha has Jase! Much like Lara Jean, Sam spends her life looking over the fence at the boy she desires but things get complicated when his massive family of brothers and sisters invite Sam into their lives with unexpected repercussions.

 

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

LolaandtheBoyNextDoor

Speaking of boys next door, Lola and Cricket Bell join the ever-growing list of YA characters who have developed romantic feelings for their neighbors. We think Lola and Lara Jean would totally bond over their fashion passion and tricky romantic relationships.

 

Lock & Key by Sarah Dessen

LockandKey

You can’t have a swoony romance list without a Sarah Dessen book, it’s just the RULES! We picked Lock & Key because much like Lara Jean, Ruby is dealing with her teens years without her mother and a difficult relationship with her sister. PLUS Nate who is the boy next door, is super swoony!

 

We Are Okay by Nina LaCour

WeAreOkay

It’s all about the letters, both unsent and sent. And while Lara Jean’s letters are to her unrequited loves, for Marin it’s more about bridging the gap of lost friendships. And just as with Lara Jean, sometimes life confronts you in person when you’re not prepared but maybe ready for a change!
