Given the way love turned her heart in the New York Times bestselling To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, which SLJ called a “lovely, lighthearted romance,” it’s no surprise that Lara Jean still has letters to write.
Lara Jean didn’t expect to really fall for Peter.
She and Peter were just pretending. Except suddenly they weren’t. Now Lara Jean is more confused than ever.
When another boy from her past returns to her life, Lara Jean’s feelings for him return too. Can a girl be in love with two boys at once?
In this charming and heartfelt sequel to the New York Times bestseller To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, we see first love through the eyes of the unforgettable Lara Jean. Love is never easy, but maybe that’s part of makes it so amazing.
This is the follow up book to To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han and it was another cute story.
This story picks up right where the first book ends and it starts with the one thing that Lara Jean is best at. Letters. A letter to Peter. Ahhhh, this book.
I adored it to pieces. Lara Jean is probably one of my favorite YA protagonists of the year. She is so much fun to get to know and her thought processes and just everything that comes out of her mouth makes me laugh and laugh. She’s such a fun character and seeing her fall in love, get mad and learn some life lessons is a whole lot of great. I love reading about her life. Jenny Han handles writing the life of a young Asian protagonist really well. I love that her culture is a part of who she is, how it’s a part of her reactions to the things that happen to her.
This book introduces a new boy in Lara Jean’s life and while I was bummed that this was going to be a love triangle thing, Han told me to calm my ass down and keep reading so I did. I liked the way that the other boy was handled and I love that when all was said and done, Lara Jean knew where her heart belonged.
Peter, freaking Peter. I loved him. I loved how different he was from Lara Jean and even when he was being a complete dumbass, I loved him. The whole thing with Gen made me want to smack the shit out of her and kick Peter in the balls but as with Lara Jean, he knew where his heart belonged and I enjoyed seeing them come together in the end.
This book was a fun story about memorable characters from the first book. I liked that Lara Jean went through some real life problems and handled them like a real person would. I loved that she figured her shit out and fixed the things in her life that needed fixing (including friendships that used to mean the world to her). She was a better and stronger person for all the things she went through in this book and I adored her and Peter together.
This book is filled with cuteness and I definitely recommend this to lovers of Jenny Han’s books but also to fans of contemporary YA romances. This is one of the good ones.
