Definitely read this book if you loved the first one, and if you are in love with LJ+PK then you will love this sequel. Not to mention the fact that we get more Kitty because WHO DOESNT LOVE LITTLE KITTY??? And we get even more stories and advice from the incredible Stormy, and throw in some tea between LJ and Genevieve, as well as a noticeable new love interest, and there you go. An AMAZING SEQUEL!
I found that the plot line was mostly realistic, which is a big plus for me as a reader when I come across books with such original ideas like this one. However, I only gave this read 4 stars as it didn't quite live up to the original book and I felt like the ending was a bit rushed. Still a must-read for anyone who read To All The Boys I've Loved Before and it's full of the Jenny Han charm her readers know and love.

This is basically a catch up book to show us how the relationships have started to unfold following on from the events of the first book. The good thing about that is that Jenny Han really beautifully captures what it means to have that nervous excitement of first dating someone but then somehow manages to tie in the routine of a steady relationship. I really felt like she just GOT it. Also, who can't relate to some ex-girlfriend drama? Nailed that one too.
And really, that, tied in with a few extra pieces about Kitty setting her dad up on dates and Lara Jean dealing with the fall out from the hot-tub video, is basically all this book is about. And it's done well, but it's definitely disappointing - I really felt as though there was nothing happening in this book, aside from some relationship/friendship/family dramas. I should admit here that I don't make a habit of reading light and fluffy romances - they're just not for me - so perhaps the downfall is with me more than the lack of much happening in the book? But I felt like more should have been happening; I was pretty bored.
Maybe if I loved Peter and Lara Jean together I could have been more gripped - I love a likeable romantic pairing as much as anyone - but it was disinterested and not at all engaged by any of the characters. Even Kitty, who I'd previously really liked. I don't know. I just didn't really care who Lara Jean picked to give her heart to - nor did I think she really deserved all the fuss!
A bit of a filler book.
Lara Jean returns and is back with even more teenage angst and love drama for readers to get stuck into, and after the unexpected return of one of her 'letters', Lara Jean in thrown back into the past of when she was in eighth grade crushing on a blonde haired handsome called John Ambrose McClaren. Just when you thought her and Peter Kavinsky were back on solid ground right?
Peter is still loveable, but blissfully unaware of all the battles and paranoia of an awkward teenage girl such as Lara Jean, and being unable to remain on the same page, Lara Jean finds herself despairing and falling into a trap of comparing him to a boy who has never hurt her. But like matters of the heart, things aren't always so simple, or black and white.
The book is an easy read, with lots of funny and humorous moments that have you laughing out loud and I found myself simply unable to put it down. Han's characters are relatable, and the plot twists had you eagerly racing through pages to find out what the 'finale' would be.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves chick lit and modern-day romances, someone who would like to get stuck into a new series and someone into light-hearted reads.
This series is without a doubt one of my favourites of all time and yet to finish the last book in this trilogy. The wholesome food and family content makes me smile so much, the relationship drama is pretty entertaining and I absolutely adore Lara Jean to the moon and beyond!
Although this story focussed more on heartbreak and complicated relationships, there was still a good balance of fluff and light-hearted contemporary found throughout this book. This time, we meet John Ambrose McClaren – the fifth owner to the last love letter Lara Jean wrote as we previously found out from the first instalment. John Ambrose McClaren is gorgeous, smart, a total heart throb in Lara Jean’s eyes and wow did he stand out in this book. Who doesn’t love a love triangle trope?!
I love how Jenny Han’s writing is so compelling that it transported me right back to my school days where a lot of relationship and friendship drama took place – happy and sad memories to be remembered, but that aside I find it incredible when an author has the ability to do that with their writing.
I really enjoyed the scenes from the book which didn’t make it into the movie adaptation of P.S. I Still Love You, it allowed me to imagine how they would have looked like. I have mixed feelings about reading the last instalment in this trilogy as I don’t want it to end but also, I want to know how it all ends (despite having watched the last movie of this trilogy last week).
‘P.S. I Still Love You’ continues on from the first book, five days later. Lara Jean and Peter have agreed to give their relationship a go and their puppy-love is as sweet and mushy as you’d expect. They’re ready to put their all in to their relationship, however, Peter is still over-friendly with ex-girlfriend Genevieve and one of Lara Jean’s five crushes gets in contact.
After a quick sneaky peek of him at the end of the movie (even though the actor has changed and I’m very excited about that), I was very giddy to finally be introduced to the most anticipated character, John Ambrose McClaren. His role in this book was alongside the other main characters and he had a very prominent impact with Lara Jean feeling’s and the direction she wants her life to go in. John Ambrose McClaren is most certainly a better fit for Lara Jean than Peter is, in a safe way. They have more in common with each other, they’re both as smart as each other, they both think of others before themselves and they just seem to understand one another more. He’s definitely a safer option when it comes to relationships, however, I’m not about that safe life. You need someone who wants adventures and keeps you on your toes, the way Lara Jean and Peter do. That all being said, I did enjoy seeing Lara Jean fall back in contact with friends like John, as at this point she was still in a bubble of her family and Peter. The two of them got up to things that only them two would enjoy and it was nice for Lara Jean to have another friend who wanted to get involved in the same events as she did and not have to force Peter to tag along.
The route of book two’s story-line follows Lara Jean going down memory lane, struggling with deciding which boy she wants to be with and which of her friends still have her best interests at heart. As a sixteen-year-old, I was more the girl who had multiple crushes on boys in school and everyone treated it like it was the worst thing to ever happen to them, but as the years went by and I started to grow in to myself more and experiment with my appearance, got more confident, etc. I then was a lot like Lara who had more options than none and as flattering as it is, it’s a recipe for disaster on all future friendships with the one’s you turn down. We also get to see Lara Jean think more about her future after high school and consider all of her college options, finally taking us slightly away from the childish mind-set and more towards Lara Jean becoming an adult. Although Jenny didn’t take away the friendship bracelets and scrapbooks just yet, they are still and forever will be a part of the person Lara Jean is and will become.
The story-line I loved the most in this book was Lara Jean and Stormy’s relationship. Stormy is in the care home that Lara Jean is volunteering at and the two really have a strong connection. Stormy teaches Lara Jean the ropes of how to be around a boy and how to treat them, whilst also giving her all the juicy details of her previous lovers from her lifetime. Although Stormy knew Lara Jean was smitten by Peter, she still tried to persuade her towards her grandson and while the plot twist of Stormy’s grandson was predictable, it still fit really well and only helped the two grow closer.
The simplicity of book one becomes a lot less simple in book two, as Lara Jean tackles new issues, comes face to face with secrets she shouldn’t know about, whilst trying to keep herself and her own life as stable as she can. Baking is the only solution! Jenny Han really is the master of light-hearted stories that are still able to tug on your heart strings enough and I can’t wait to tell you all more about book 3, as that is when Lara Jean’s life gets the most juiciest! Queue the drama…
Lara Jean, what happened to you? Peter Kavinsky, when did you become such a jerk? John Ambrose McClaren, why are you so adorable? And where the hell is Josh, did he move?!
It may get spoilery from here, so stop reading if you don't want to know what happens..... I found the love triangle increasingly irritating, this whole book just felt unnecessary, and a rehash of the previous book with a different cast of characters, the conclusion was inevitable. The last chapter was basically 'oh yeah you were a ass but don't worry about it, let's get back together.' It felt really rushed, and just showed that neither character had really learnt anything from their experiences in the book. The lack of communication between Peter and Lara Jean was making me scream inside, and even after finishing the novel, I still don't know why he couldn't have just been honest about the Gen situation from the start. He plain and simply picked her over Lara Jean in many situations, and without communicating any reasoning behind that, it was a total dick move.
I felt sad for John, who seemed to be a genuinely nice guy, who honestly liked Lara Jean. He didn't really deserve to be treated the way he was, strung along, just to be dropped with no real explanation. I also hated Kitty's attitude to the whole situation, she was one of my favourite's in the first book, and she just gets more and more bratty in this one, I really just wanted to give her a clip around the ears (oh my god....when did I become my nan?!).
I'm going to read the last book, mostly because I already bought it, but honestly Jenny Han, you've got some serious work on your hands to get me back on board with these books.
