Lara Jean’s letter-writing days aren’t over in this surprise follow-up to the bestselling To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You.
Lara Jean is having the best senior year a girl could ever hope for. She is head over heels in love with her boyfriend, Peter; her dad’s finally getting remarried to their next door neighbor, Ms. Rothschild; and Margot’s coming home for the summer just in time for the wedding.
But change is looming on the horizon. And while Lara Jean is having fun and keeping busy helping plan her father’s wedding, she can’t ignore the big life decisions she has to make. Most pressingly, where she wants to go to college and what that means for her relationship with Peter. She watched her sister Margot go through these growing pains. Now Lara Jean’s the one who’ll be graduating high school and leaving for college and leaving her family—and possibly the boy she loves—behind.
When your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?
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.
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.
