When you find something that makes you feel nostalgic or happy or is the type of story that just is happiness, that’s something someone is eager to find more of. Or at least I am. One of the stories that puts me in this frame of mind is Jenny Han’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before books. I’ve read books one and two, seen the Netflix film adaptations, and now am ready to find more such happy-go-luck romances, which is why I’m taking a look at the novels on my shelf, and making a guess which 10 novels to read after PS I Still Love You.
The adorable-ness of the new To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You Netflix movie inspired me to want more of the same kind of cuteness. So, I’m taking a look at my bookshelf, and do some speculative guess work. Here are ten of the books that while different in terms of the plot, I feel like might make me feel the same as these charming romantic-comedies – or at least make their reader smile!

1: A Match Made in Mehendi by Nandinin Bajpai
About: Tells the story of a girl who comes from a long line of matchmakers, who though her passion is elsewhere, believe she too has the “gift” when she makes one random match.
2: Hearts, Strings and Other Breakable Things by Jacqueline Firkins
About: During her final summer before college, a girl is caught between “the boy next door and a playboy.”
Why: I mean a: there’s a love triangle, b: this one sounds darling and c: it says its ideal for To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before readers, which tells me that’s probably why I ordered this one! Amazon | Goodreads
3: I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo
I’ve now read two of Maurene’s books, so I feel like this is the one title that I might have a pretty good grasp on. It seems ideal for anyone who likes Jenny Han novels, and I’m here for more of that. Amazon | Goodreads
4: Always and Forever Lara Jean by Jenny Han
5: What I Like About You by Marisa Kanter
About: Creating an online presence as “Kels,” a high-schooler named Halle meets her on-line crush IRL when she moves in with her grandfather for senior year.
Why: This one doesn’t arrive until April, but I’m currently reading this one, and OHMYGOSH, you guys, this is like the book of my blogging-girl dreams! Amazon | Goodreads
6: Love Fortunes and Other Disasters by Kimberly Karlius
About: A long familial line finds out their happy end fate through a fortune, but when one girl learns she never will, she sets out to make her own fortune.
7: Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

8: Save the Date by Morgan Matson
About: When her sister marries, Charlie finds herself thrust into one wedding disaster after another where maybe, just maybe, a cute boy waits at the end of the chaos.
Why: From all I’ve read or heard of this one, it’s not romance focused, so in this way, it’d differ greatly from ‘P.S.,’ but the family angle interests me, and I do love the Covey family from Jenny Han’s trilogy, so… there’s that. Amazon | Goodreads
9: Airports, Exes and Other Things I’m Over by Shani Petroff
About: A girl discovers her boyfriend is seeing someone else, and sets about getting away from her boyfriend (who she’s currently on a romantic getaway with!) only to discover a storm is delaying or cancelling flights.
Why: I don’t know much about this book (other than that it’s been on my shelf for way too long), but I have read other novels by Petroff, and they’re all about sweet rom-com fun. Plus this one reads more like a NA romance. Amazon | Goodreads
10: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
About: Late and missed flights form the basis for this rom-com of serendipity.
BONUS! 11: Love and Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch
About: A Tuscany adventure awaits us inside these pages.
BONUS! 7 Movies to See After PS I Still Love You
Everyone who’s interested in seeing them, has probably already seen all of these, but I’ll share anyway…
1: A Cinderella Story
Why: I mean, there’s the whole “text” thing to replace letters, and really, it’s kind of a teen YA rom-com classic. Find on Amazon Video
Why: A Hallmark original, this one is a bout a teen girl who crushes on a boy who doesn’t have a clue (at least that’s part of the story). Check Hallmark for encore showings or find on Amazon DVD
3: Falling Inn Love
Why: Because it’s another Netflix original, and it’s cuuute! Find on Netflix
Why: Because it’s sweet and simple and all the old-fashioned charm. Find on Amazon Video
Why: I really have no idea why I’m adding this one because it doesn’t have much in common with ‘Boys,’ but I think it’s more about the love story itself which is through the writing, not of letters, but song lyrics. Find on Amazon Video
6: The Perfect Date
Why: Noah Centineo, the ‘All the Boys’ lead plays in this one, and it’s similar (in some ways) to it, plus super cute with some great humor! Find on Netflix
7: Sierra Burgess is a Loser
The second Netflix original (on this list) to star Noah, this one is a charmer full of sweet characters and a happy-go-lucky expression despite its moments of sadness. Find on Netflix
