I picked this book up and devoured it in a day! I just loved the easy flowing writing style and meeting the characters along the way. The use of lyrics that bought two people together was sweet too!

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.

I felt like I needed something a little lighter to read when I came across P.S. I Like You by Kasie West, so I decided to head back to high school! I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this story too, experiencing what Lily was going through in school and forming a connection with someone through letters. It was an amusing, sweet and highly addictive read that I found hard to put down!

Lily was struggling with chemistry and found it hard to focus. She wrote lyrics to quieten her mind, so then she could try and concentrate on class. When her professor caught her not paying attention, he told her she could only use one piece of paper to take notes and that he would check her work, which lead to her scribbling on the desk. When she returned to class, someone had written the next line in the song and the anonymous friendship began.

I just loved this concept!! Forming a connection with a faceless person and finding it easy to bare your soul and emotions through letters. It was sweet to see them both open up and comfort one another, with advice, lyrics or by using humour to brighten their days.

Lily was a character that I could connect to as well. She was a little quirky, loved to sew, was passionate about her lyrics and was a self taught guitar player too. She comes from a large family, who all seem to love and care deeply for one another, and I could see where she got her quirkiness from! I loved that she had a strong connection with her best friend Isabel and they could talk to each other about everything. She tried to stay out of the spotlight at school, but there were a few people that she did not get along with.

This is the first book I have read by Kasie West and it was a pleasure to experience her writing! I enjoyed meeting all the characters and I liked how the romance took it's time to develop. It was a real eye opener as she showed me how we can see people differently to how they actually are. And it had all the feels! I laughed, I cried and swooned! I can tell you I'll be on the hunt for more books by West in the future!

Two little teasers today, one a smart-ass comment, and the second showing how passionate Lily was.

“Did you guys get started?”
I smirked. “Yes, the people who need help in Chemistry went ahead and taught each other. We’re super good at Chemistry now.”

“It’s just, this was my thing, you know?” The tears fell down my cheeks now and I couldn’t stop them. “It was the one thing I was really good at. The one thing that brought me perfect peace and happiness. I don’t need much, but I need this.”
