“I notice you, Lily Abbott.”

This book was extremely adorable, and you can’t help but smile while reading it. Yes, it could be predictable, stereotypical, and cliché at times but it was a light, lovely read. And it is safe to say, I enjoyed myself while reading. If you’re looking for a fast and fun read, this is the book for you. 

This book was full of fluff. So. Much. Fluff. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. It was good fluff. And it was nice not having anything angst-y happen. 

I must say I loved the pen pal aspect of it all. In the book, Lily and this mysterious person exchange letters by leaving them under their Chemistry desk. Neither person knew who they were writing to. It was nice having them express themselves and have a conversation with a complete anonymous person. It was great seeing that relationship build. It felt raw and real. However, I do feel like the pen pal aspect of it dragged on. I wanted them to get together earlier than they had. 

I do have one major complaint about the book. I’m disappointed by the ending. It left me feeling unsatisfied, and even though the main character got a happy ending, I wanted to know what happened next with that other part of the plot. 

Characters 

This book did lack prominent character development but there were some great characters and relationships displayed. I adored Lily. I thought she was a relatable main character. She was quirky and a song writer. Her POV was refreshing and funny. I thought that I was interesting that her love interest and she bonded over music. My favorite thing about her was that she communicated easily through her writings. 

Her family was extremely relatable. Lily has two younger brothers and an older sister. And all of them are important throughout the story. I loved all of their personalities. It was great to see her have a good relationship with them. 

I also enjoyed that Lily and her best friend’s relationship wasn’t ruined by a petty feud or crush. 

I don’t want to ruin the mystery of it so I won’t say the name of the love interest. His justifications about his earlier actions were a little weak, but after getting to know him, I really grew to love him.
He was a good love interest. 

He and Lily were adorable; and I enjoyed the moments when they actually were in a relationship. I feel like I say this a lot, but I wanted more scenes of them actually together because the ones that were given were cute and I want more. 

And yes, he was “swoon worthy" . Like I mentioned earlier, this book is predictable; it was obvious who the love interest was very earlier on. But the predictability aspect of it doesn’t ruin the book for you. You get to see it all come together in a good way. 

Final Analysis 

P.S. I Like You is an adorable, quick read. The predictably and cliché aspect of it doesn’t ruin the overall experience of the book. The romance is great. However, the weak ending does not do the entire book justice. In conclusion, P.S. I Like You was an enjoyable read, and I would recommend
