While spacing out in chemistry class, Lily scribbles some of her favourite song lyrics onto her desk. The next day, she finds that someone has continued the lyrics on the desk and added a message to her. Intrigue!
Soon, Lily and her anonymous pen pal are exchanging full-on letters – sharing secrets, recommending bands, and opening up to each other. Lily realizes she’s kind of falling for this letter writer. 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…
Kasie West brings irresistible wit, warmth, and sparkle to this swoon-worthy story of love showing up when – and where – you least expect it.
I had recently finished The Fill-In Boyfriend when this book arrived in my August OwlCrate box. It seemed like the strangest coincidence – but a happy one! In fact, I have to say that I enjoyed P.S. I Like You more than all the other novels that I’ve read from Kasie West. I felt like the plot of this book was so cute, sweet, and fun. Though it was also a bit predictable – I quickly deduced who our mystery pen pal was early on in the story – it was still fun to see how our characters were all going to let things play out. Unlike The Fill-In Boyfriend which I thought lacked a little more substance, P.S. I Like You presented characters that I could understand and appreciate more. Of course, when reading a Kasie West novel, one shouldn’t be too serious. It’s not meant to be serious – which is probably why I’ve seen Kasie West named the Queen of Fluff on Instagram. And it’s meant in a good way. This is good fluff that is meant to be enjoyable, sweet, warm, fun, and perfect for a quick read.
