Lara Jean’s letter-writing days aren’t over in this surprise follow-up to the New York Times bestselling To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You.

Lara Jean is having the best senior year a girl could ever hope for. She is head over heels in love with her boyfriend, Peter; her dad’s finally getting remarried to their next door neighbor, Ms. Rothschild; and Margot’s coming home for the summer just in time for the wedding.

But change is looming on the horizon. And while Lara Jean is having fun and keeping busy helping plan her father’s wedding, she can’t ignore the big life decisions she has to make. Most pressingly, where she wants to go to college and what that means for her relationship with Peter. She watched her sister Margot go through these growing pains. Now Lara Jean’s the one who’ll be graduating high school and leaving for college and leaving her family—and possibly the boy she loves—behind.

When your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?

“Is this how it goes? You fall in love, and nothing seems truly scary anymore, and life is one big possibility?”


*swoons uncontrollably

This conclusion of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy was truly superb. It’s THE PERFECT ending that I’ve been looking for. I hated Peter Kavinsky in P.S. I Still Love You but this book took all my rage away. Why? Because Jenny Han redeemed his character and it was all it took to make me swoon over him again.

I rarely enjoy YA these days so I was glad to find myself really loving this book from start to finish. As a matter of fact, this book is my favorite out of all the books in this series. I loved the drama that was not overdone, the romance which was totally cute, and Lara Jean’s relationship with her family.

I had a lot of favorite scenes, for sure (Lara Jean’s birthday, Dr. Covey and Trina’s practice dance, the double date, ahh so much more!) and if only I could paint them in my memory to last forever, I would. *sigh And the soundtracks.. OMG! Did I just read Shania Twain lyrics out there? I loveeeeee!

Favorite characters of all time: KITTY and CHRIS.

After finishing the book, I felt like I was floating in a sea of clouds. It was such a sweet ending. I loved Peter and Lara Jean’s journey and I can’t help but start to miss everything that happened between them. You can only imagine how I became elated and at the same time, quite sad that their story already ended. It was totally a lovely conclusion. So worth it! I don’t think I would ever forget this sweet piece of a chocolate chipsy story. Enough said because I’m crying with feels. *cries

  1. Wonderfully written review!!! I’m officially absolutely OBSESSED with this series. The first is my favorite just because I feel as though it’s the funniest, especially the part when Lara Jean runs right up to Peter in the hallway and kisses him. I liked the third though because it was so sweet and I feel like this is the book where Peter isn’t the “perfect” lacrosse player. Here we see his doubts and struggles, which is definitely a change from the last two books.
    Anyways, I look forward to more posts from you in the future… Happy Reading! 😀
