GoodReads Blurb: 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 what makes it so amazing.
When I finished reading To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before for the first time this past January I was already eagerly awaiting the next book in the series. The story was interesting and the writing felt different than other YA romances that I’d read, including other books by Jenny Han. I really liked it and I always recommend it to people that I know like YA, romance, and good writing.
After so much waiting, I was excited when the release of P.S I Still Love You was pushed up from it’s initial June release to the last week in May. My amazing Secret Sister preordered it for me a few months ago and it came just two days after the book was released.
I had heard lots of bloggers and bookstagrammers saying that they didn’t like it as much as the first book, but that they wished that they had reread TATBILB before reading PSISLY, so my sister and I decided to read it together again before the release. I enjoyed reading it again and it was interesting to read it for a second time knowing what the ending would be.
When I started reading P.S. I Still Love You, I was very excited but I tried not to get my hopes up too high because of some of the negative things I had said about it. The great thing about this book is that since I reread TATBILB before reading it, it seemed like no time had passed between the end of the first book and the beginning of the second. The writing felt the same and the way characters spoke didn’t seem to change at all from book to book.
I love that Han developed the John Ambrose McClaren story line because, other than just hearing him described, I really did, like Lara Jean, want to see how he turned out. He was a great character and I think that he brought out the best in Han’s writing and character building.
Overall, I really did like this book and the way that it was written. Personally, I hoped that everything would have turned out differently in the end, but for the sake of those who haven’t read it yet, I’ll refrain from spoilers. I highly recommend this book and the one that came before it. It tells the cute and lovely story of a young girl in love and I truly enjoyed it.
