Review:

The plot of P. S. I Like You by Kasie West attract me, I want to indulge myself into it but made a decision to wait until I finish the first three books of Kasie West.

Lily loves to write lyrics and loves music. Out of boredom, she writes lyrics to her Chemistry desk. The next day when she got into her seat, someone continues the lyrics and write down something under what she wrote. On the other hand, Lily hates Cade for some reason.

What I like most in this book is the secrecy and mysteriousness of the pen pal of Lily. Although I already have a hunch who might be it, still it gave me excitement to keep reading (my theory is correct, I knew it that he is Lily’s pen pal). Lily reminds me of Caymen (The Distance Between Us) because of her dry jokes. Additionally, how Lily and Cade banters each other makes this book more interesting. I think, Cade is a jerk, but he is like that because he is broken inside. Moreover, I already have a feeling that Lily is somewhat attracted to Cade because she keeps on bringing Cade’s name and thinking about him (even though she keeps on denying it). Who would resist Cade’s charm? His intentions are good and mostly people misinterpreted it or maybe only Lily.

P. S. I Like You is a light, easy to read and page-turner. I also find it cute, sweet and entertaining. Though at some point I find Lily’s rationality irrational, still I find this book amazing. This book is my favourite out of all Kasie West’s novels.

 

Quotable quotes:

“I guess everyone wants what they don’t have.”

“Have you ever tried so hard to live up to expectations only to fall short every time? That was vague and cryptic, wasn’t it?”

“Cade was just another representation of something I wanted but couldn’t have.” -do you have this?

“If you don’t try, you’ll always wonder.”
