Belly has an unforgettable summer in this stunning start to the Summer I Turned Pretty series from the New York Times bestselling author of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (now a major motion picture!), Jenny Han.
Some summers are just destined to be pretty.
Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer—they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one wonderful and terrible summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.
We’re down to the final days of 2020 and that’s finally a relief after the crazy year that it has been. In an upcoming posts I will talk about my new resolutions, hopes and goals for the coming year as well as sharing several other things.
Right now though, let’s get back to the review that you are here for. If you have been following the blog for a while you know that I read Jenny Han’s To all the Boys I ever loved series back in 2018. I was on such a reading high back then. I recently found the first book in Jenny Han’s other series The Summer I turned pretty.
I love reading YA books because you can dive back into highschool and relive all those emotions all over again. I especially loved that this book is portrayed through a summer with flash backs from other summers. I loved that you really got to feel the summer and the enjoyment of a beach town and all that comes with it.
Let me know if you have read this book or if you have read any other books in Jenny Han’s repertoire. I can’t wait to tell you all about my goals and dreams for the upcoming year and other new things that maybe coming to the blog in the future. I can’t wait to really get back to blogging again. I hope that you’ll come back again to read more posts and see more things to come here in the future.
