2. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before series

No list about recent book adaptations would be complete without Netflix’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. Based on the book series of the same name by Jenny Han, the movie was a smash hit when released in 2018. Its popularity has sky-rocketed, resulting in the following two books being adapted as well. Most recently, the second movie To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You was released in February.

There aren’t many people who haven’t watched these movies. The film follows Lara Jean who writes love letters to all the boys she’s ever loved before. Things are going great until her letters get mailed out. As embarrassing as it might sound, the shenanigans are what make the movie so enjoyable.

Additionally, the relationships both familial and romantic make you want to root for Lara Jean and her sisters, throughout. While the second movie wasn’t as good as the first, it was still a cute and sweet movie.

Surprisingly, the books and the movies are pretty different with some characters being drastically different. Regardless, the book series is fun and incredibly addicting. If you haven’t read the books yet, now is the time before the final movie is released. For this one, it’s really up to you which format as there isn’t a “special” audiobook narrator. In this case, it might be best to either buy the books physically, borrow from the library or go the ebook route.
