I’m back again with yet another book review. I know that I am unintentionally turning this into a book blog, but at least you have consistent posts from me for a little bit right?!? What’s worse hearing about the tons of books I’m reading or not hearing from me.
Let’s get back to the topic at hand. This book review in case you haven’t noticed is about the book Always and Forever Lara Jean by Jenny Han, the final book in the To All the Boys I’ve loved before trilogy. If you haven’t read my reviews of the previous two books you can read them here and here.
Lara Jean Song Covey is finally a senior in high school and she has watched her older sister Margot go through this year as well as her next door neighbor Josh, so she knows what to expect. She is sure that she and her boyfriend Peter will end up at the same college and stay together, but when she doesn’t get in to her dream school and gets waitlisted at another school Lara Jean feels like her life is being turned upside down. Add into that her dad has decided that it is time for him to remarry. While Lara Jean appears to be calm on the outside she is internally freaking out and trying to plan and control all that she can.
I will try and keep my promise to not spoil the ending of the book too much, but there was so much about this ending that was felt unfinished. I loved the second book in the trilogy most because I felt that it let you believe that Peter and Lara Jean would make it and be in love forever. This book the ending just left you with too many possibilities and too much despair even though it was closing the door on one chapter of life. I love reading YA because of the fact that you can dive into this world with literally no hesitation and feel like you are diving back into high school. I loved the sass in this book and the personality of the Asian American family shined through. If you haven’t read this book or any book in the series I recommend that you should especially since there’s a Netflix special coming out soon.
Let me know if you have read this book and what you thought. I also read this for the Paper & Glam bookclub , so if you aren’t participating in that you should and can do so here. If you have any recommendations for books I should read this year, let me know 🙂 I have so many more books to read, so hopefully they’ll all end up as book reviews on here. If you would like to read some reviews on some of the e-books I’ve read let me know 🙂 Otherwise those mini reviews are always on my Goodreads. I’ll see you soon with another post.
