Reading progress update: I've read 84 out of 367 pages.
What I Loved - Siri Hustvedt

So I am nearing the part in this book, where I quit reading last time and although I admittedly do not remember very much story-wise, I do remember what made me stop reading back then: there are way too many exhaustive descriptions of artwork! For pages Hustvedt is dwelling on paintings, sculptures, installations, cut-outs of various figures in various colours and materials and whatnot. Those descriptions are too long, too detailed, they interrupt the decently interesting storyline, and above all, they've already become repetitive.

Review: The Lost Boys
The Lost Boys Vol. 1 - Tim Seeley

This was a delight!  I love The Lost Boys film and this was a continuation of the story.  So many Emerson family feels and Frog Brother feels.

 

I never liked Star!  And sexy saxophone dude from the pier is a hippie vampire hunter.  I loved seeing the characters in further vampire hunting shenanigans.  A must-have for fans of the movie!

What I Loved - Siri Hustvedt

This is my second attempt in reading What I loved.

The last time (must have been 4 years ago) I managed to make it to page 92, let’s see, if I can hang on for longer this time.

P.S. I Still Love You (To All the Boys I've Loved Before) - Jenny Han

This is book #2, in the To All The Boys I've Loved Before series. This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For complete understanding of the series, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Lara Jean's story continues as she navigates high school, loving boys, and family obligations.  At the heart of her she is serious, and honest.  Her back and forth with Peter is challenged in this installment by the appearance of John.

 

Peter is trying to understanding the changes and speed of life.  When his love becomes a triangle he is so confused and angry.  Mostly he is hurt that it was even possible.  Sure, he stays in touch and tries to help his ex, Genevieve.  He never thought Laura Jean would walk away.

 

This book was so full of action I actually read it twice.  The pace is rather fast once it gets going, and the characters are all caught up in the action that consists of high school and getting ready for later in life.  I love the banter, and there is such a sweet heat between the main characters I am rooting for them!  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

This film was done very well and the pace moves along quickly.  I thought that the story was represented and in my opinion, shows about an 80% or so accuracy to the book itself.  If you have not read my book review prior to this, (CLICK HERE to read book review now!)

 

Anyone who has read the book prior to watching this fun movie is looking for some of those fun Easter Eggs that are common in today's media.  If that is the case there are a few to look for - including another of the author's books!

 

I absolutely loved the story at its base.  Lara Jean and Peter touched my heart in a way that just cannot be compared.  I wanted to do justice by them and review both the book and the movie so my readers could see that book adaptions can be done well.  By the ratings and the volume of those watching I think I am in good company!  I give this adaptation a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
