To All The Boys I've Loved Before - Movie Adaptation!

Image
(Featuring lots of pictures from the set) If you didn't know this already (have you been living under a rock? xD) To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han is getting adapted into a movie! I could totally see this series as a movie while reading the books and I'm so happy that it's actually becoming one. There have been a lot of news about this lately, mainly on Jenny Han's Twitter account, so go follow that for more information and more recent updates.

Some fans had a problem with the fact that Lara Jean is half-korean while the actress who plays Lara Jean is Vietnamese-American. Jenny Han wrote a small letter addressing that which you can read here.

But who cares, right? He's only a Hazara.

One day, though, Amir betrays his loyal servant by turning on him when he needs him the most. Amir knows that he should've helped his companion, but instead he ran away like a coward, and as his guilt builds, the mere sight of Hassan becomes painful. Amir betrays him once again, forcing him and his crippled father from their family home.

Soon after they leave, war rages in Kabul as the Russians invade. Amir and his father are forced to flee; first to Pakistan, then to the U.S. After…

So... BookTube-A-Thon has been over for like two weeks... This update is REALLY late but atleast I'm doing it! Anyway, I've been quite busy, and that's why it's so late...

I read most of the books that were on my TBR for the week, but I changed quite a few books on my TBR like I said I probably wood. For example I didn't read You Know Me Well by Nina Lacour and David Levithan. I also didn't finish A Thousand Nights by E.K Johnston, although I did start that one.
