Summary from Goodreads.com:
What if the person you were falling for was a total mystery?
While Lily is spacing out in Chemistry one day, she picks up her pencil and scribbles a line from one of her favorite songs on the desk. The next day, someone else has written back to her on the desk! Soon enough Lily and the mystery student are exchanging notes, and lyrics, and even sharing secrets. When Lily finds out that her anonymous pen pal is a guy, she's flustered -- and kind of feels like she's falling for him. She and her best friend set out to unravel the identity of the letter writer -- but when the truth is revealed, the guy is the LAST person Lily could have ever imagined it to be. Now that Lily knows the truth, can she untangle her feelings and gather the courage to listen to her heart?
From beloved author Kasie West (The Distance Between Us) comes an utterly charming story about mixed messages, missed connections, and the magic of good old-fashioned secret admirer notes.
Kasie West has done it again! I honestly feel so blessed to have been able to read two books about music and love in the same month. P.S. I Like You was such an awesome read and one that is perfect for the music lovers and pen pals of the world. :) Or anyone that just enjoys a really good story.
It feels like all I can say about this book is that it is probably my second favorite book by Kasie West. I absolutely enjoyed the love of music these characters had, the anticipated letters written back and forth, and the unexpected relationships that were formed! This book had it all for me. :)
Lily and her guitar were awesome. I was easily able to relate to her love of music and her family. I enjoyed the fact that Lily's family was always around and that West included their relationship in the book. Lily wanting to be able to write lyrics and preform them on her guitar was another thing I could relate to because life is about music and books for me. ;)
The whole pen pal idea was awesome as well. It felt like I was there with Lily anticipating the next letter from a friend that had something in common with her. When Lily finds out that her pen pal is a guy she tries, with no luck, to figure out who it could be. I kinda figured out who it was from the start but that didn't make Lily's surprise any less exciting.
Then there was Cade. Cade was not all that he seemed and I really enjoyed learning more about him along with Lily. I want to say more about him but I can't and I won't tell you why. ;)
I am honestly a sucker for Love/Hate relationships. I love it when two characters finally start to understand each other. I love watching a dislike between characters grow into something more.
Overall, this was definitely an enjoyable read. It was cute and fun and I had so many feels near the end! There were parts that were kind of slow or were kind of annoying but I was able to look past it because of the overall feel of the book. The ending was everything and had me wanting more long after I finished.
I recommend for those looking for a summer read, a cute contemporary, or a book about music and friendship. :)
