This is a series I’ve been wanting to do for a while now – a comparison between a book and its movie. I’m going to compare the two together, to highlight what remains the same and what differs from the source material and let you know what I did and didn’t like about those changes, and then I’ll let you know whether I preferred the book or the film. It’s important to remember that while the book is the source material, the movie is an adaptation and doesn’t necessarily have to remain the same as the book. There could be a number of reasons for this, from budget to time constraints to actor capabilities. Certain things in a book might not translate well on screen.

Movie adaptations are becoming increasingly popular and there are so many that I have planned for this series, but what better way to kick it off than one of the hottest movies to hit this summer – To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. My last post was a review of the book, so if you haven’t read it yet then you can find it here.

Warning: this will contain spoilers.

Synopsis: What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them… all at once?

Sixteen-year-old Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she’s written. One for every boy she’s ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control.
