"If only there was a way to transport letters faster, through some sort of electronic device that codes messages and sends them through the air. But that’s just crazy talk."

Several times during my read I asked myself, "what would it take for P.S. I Like You to reach a 4.5/5 stars?" and in all honesty, I don't think it could, no matter how cute some parts were. Now, I'm all for rating a novel according to its genre, but where am I supposed to put Kasie West books? In

Can I ask a serious question? How does Kasie West do it… how does she manage to make me love each story she writes more than the last? I torture myself by reading them as soon as I can get my hands on them, which in turn makes me just have to wait even longer for the next, but I seriously can’t even help myself.

This book isn’t out until July of 2016… yes I said July 2016. That’s half a year away, and still, I didn’t even care. As soon as it was loaded onto my kindle app, I pull this beauty up a

I fell right in love with this book. It was so sweet and sometimes it's nice to read something sweet.

This seems to be most of my friends' least favourite Kasie West book, but it's totally my favourite. This storyline just worked for me. ...more
I bought this one for my daughter (<--target audience, btw) at a book fair and then decided to check it out for myself. Because I'm nosey.
It was cute.

The gist is that there's this artsy girl who modifies thrift shop clothes, listens to indie rock bands, and doesn't realize that she's pretty. And like all artsy girls, she has a notebook filled with dreams, doodles, and lyrics she desperately wants to turn into a meaningful song - which she carries around with her all the time. She's unflinchingly

Honestly this book just did nothing for me. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it. It just "was" I guess. It's hard to describe my feelings toward it because I really don't have any feelings for it. I just think this wasn't the Kasie West book for me. Oh well! I definitely want to try other books by her, especially her upcoming release.

"Doesn't every girl?"
It surprised me when his cheeks turned a light shade of pink. I wasn't sure why that embarrassed him in any way. I was positive he already knew it. He ran one hand through his hair. Then he said, almost too quiet for me to hear, "You're not every girl."

I find it just so strange that I had never read a Kasie West novel until late last summer. Seriously-It’s so hard to find YA contemporary authors that make such a large range of

This book contains my least favorite trope but it's done SO WELL and with just enough to counter balance it that I loved it?? Was not expecting that. I really REALLY REALLY liked this book for a lot of reasons. The characters were fantastic, especially the main character. I loved the romance in this book because it wasn't insta-love. It took a bit to develop and come about, and even then it still took a little longer. LOVE ME SOME (kind of) SLOW BURN. The whole plot and premise are so

The plot obviously pulled me in first. The whole premise is so adorable. Kind of like You’ve Got Mail I guess (which makes me love it even more). SO Lily starts writing on her desk one day because she’s bored durin

SSSSSWWWWOOONN!!I That was all sorts of adorable. I can’t even. I think this is officially my favorite Kasie West novel and I’m so glad that I decided to reread this, gladder that it was so much better than the first time I read it. I can’t believe how I easily wrote this off the first time as some clichéd romantic comedy because this was quite very well written and despite the familiar elements, letter writing, anonymity and stuff, it came off quite very original.

So cute!!! Can’t believe I binged this ahhh this was just what I needed ❤️ Definitely going to check out more Kasie West books when I’m in need of some serious fluff 😌
Of course it was perfect, it's Kasie.

I legit shoved a friend out of the way when I saw this gorgeous thing on the shelf at my local indie, so of course I was going to read it ASAP.

Lily is a great MC. I loved how much she loves music and writing lyrics. Her family was fun {all of those contests and voting had me cackling} and her little brothers were adorable.

I love love love the idea of secret pen pals and letters and this was just perfection. Kasie threw in a couple of mild twists I wasn't exp

Jasmine from How Useful It Is
About: P.S. I Like You is a young adult contemporary written by Kasie West. It was published on 7/26/16 by Point, an imprint of Scholastic Inc, hardcover, 336 pages. The genres are fiction, romance, young adult, and contemporary. This book is intended for readers ages 12 and up, grades 7 and up.

My Experience: I started reading P.S. I Like You on 6/3/17 and finished it on 6/12/17. Though if time were in my favor, I would have read this book in two days! I love LOVE reading this book! It’s just so
I have adored Kasie West's books since I read one for the very first time. Every time she brings out a new book, I'm immediately intrigued, and with this book, that was no different. The premise was unlike any book I've read before, and because of Kasie's style, I was hooked from the first page.

The main character, Lily, is bored during chem class - like many students to come before her. When her teacher restricts her paper to one sheet, so that she makes only chemistry notes, and nothing else. T

This was a super cute and adorable book. It was just what I was craving, a surgery sweet book. It wasn't amazing but if your looking for a cute contemporary that is addictive and that you can fly through, look no further! Now I must read all of West's books! I need more cutesy books in my life, STAT! ...more
I woke up one day and took a shower. I am so weird. (Also, I am very funny but no one understands my jokes at all.) The next day, I peed. That afternoon, I wrote some lyrics. Then I kept looking at those lyrics for the whole week. Like by doing just that, I could vomit life into those words. I am so weird, no one likes me. This bully dude, Cade, he's soo hot. But I hate him. Then at Monday, I ogled this dude, Lucas. At Tuesday I tried my best not to ogle him, but failed miserably. I am so weird. ...more

First thing first...I'm late for the party, I know😂 but it wasn't until this year that I decided to read Kasie West's books, and I'm happy I'm giving them a try.

This was a cute “You’ve Got Mail” redo, which is one of my all-time favorite themes. Lily has no love for Chemistry class and would much rather spend her time writing guitar lyrics. She’s forbidden from getting out her lyrics notebook, and so instead starts scribbling on her desk to some secret person who shares the desk in a different period and a secret romance starts. I enjoy the way Kasie West girls feel like real girls with real problems, and Lily’s social awkwardness and troubles with her ...more

This is such a sweet story—not so your teeth hurt--it’s perfectly sweet. First and foremost: I love the Abbott family. I want to dive into their home and be submersed in the fresh, awesome, oddness. Each quirky, yet quintessential, sibling provides poignant texture, interacting individually and collectively with Lily. Her competition-loving, compassionate parents are perfectly embarrassing and absolutely adorable. Also, there is a rescued “pet” rabbit.

I adore Lily. She’s who I wanted to be as a

PS I Like You is the You've Got Mail of the young adult genre.

^^^Yeah, I said it. But I friggin love the movie You've Got Mail and this book came my way at exactly the right time so I was happy to read a cute and predictable YA romance.

PS I Like You is about teenage Lily, a quirky musician who speaks her mind and makes snap decisions. Out of boredom in her Chemistry class, she scribbles some lyrics on her desk and is surprised to see a response the next day. What ensues is a secre

This was such a fun, sweet, feel-good story with wonderful characters and a great storyline.

I loved Lily and I loved her family. I was very happy with who the mystery pan pal turned out to be. Even though I guessed early on, I still enjoyed seeing how everything would play out.

I listened to the audiobook for this one and I enjoyed it a lot. The narrator made it easy to distinguish between the characters, and I could also tell, by the tone of her voice, the difference between Lily just thinking
this book is SO ADORABLE but the main character kinda made me want to rip my hair out. it's the kind of book you read simply for pleasure.

- the plot was predictable and cliché but i didn't mind
- i felt the pacing was a bit fast and took some getting used to
- the second half of this book was much better than the first
- i was hoping to see strong character development but there wasn't much as far as i could tell
- i do like the family dynamics though
- the frienships are also fantastic

I don't understand why this is the least favorite Kasie West book for most.
I have to disagree.

Lily isn't the most popular girl in school. She has only one friend but she doesn't mind that.
Most of the people don't appreciate her jokes anyway.
Especially Cade. Oh how she hates Cade. That snoby jerk, thinks so highly of himself and make fun of everyone else.
But she doesn't like to think about Cade. He only makes her mad.

What she really loves is music. Listening to it. Writing her own....
