It’s Thursday once again and we’re back with my favorite book meme, #ThrowbackThursday created by Renee of It’s Book Talk (https://itsbooktalk.com/) as her way of sharing some of her favorite oldies but goodies books that were published more than a year ago. Check out her blog to see her TBT recommendations this week 🙂
Okay, here I am again with Jenny Han’s books, this time with PS I Still Love You.
P.S. I Still Love You
(To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before #2)
by Jenny Han
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.
I totally liked how this story veered through some changes after the first book in the series. I liked how the story progressed. I thought John Ambrose McLaren was really a cool and devastatingly handsome guy (imagine a younger Robert Redford, oh my!) but I felt that he was lacking something, I just couldn’t pinpoint what. Peter Kavinsky, well he hasn’t changed since in grade school but there was something about him that endeared to me. I can’t explain how I felt about him. But Lara Jean’s decision in the end made my heart go pitter-patter like rain – the emotions flowed right through me and I couldn’t contain it.
The Lara Jean I met in the first book, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, was a little awkward and goody-goody until the bath tub scene. For this second story, I liked that she became stronger and more opinionated. As usual, her family was really loving and lovable at the same time. I am excited for Daddy Song’s possible lovelife, yay!!
When I first read this story about a year ago, I didn’t know about Jenny Han’s decision to write another book. What I thought was a beautiful duology already became a trilogy and now I have re-read this book to prepare myself for the third installment, Always and Forever Lara Jean. Yes, I am definitely going to dive in to the third story as soon as possible, I wouldn’t want to be left out!
