All I can think to say is that I loved it. I cried more times than I'd like to admit while reading this book. Susannah always knew who Belly would marry. If only Susannah had known how she would get there! This book started out STRONG. And I mean chest clenching, life altering strong. I've never smiled and cried so much in my life.
I have immensely enjoyed the first two books in Jenny Han's Summer Series. They are a bit fluffy and full of ANGST and DRAMA and produce the occasional 'eye-rolling moment from me ~ but they are also charming and nostalgic and summer-y and somehow authentic to the teen voice. I found them utterly compelling and deliciously addictive curl-up-in-the-sun summer goodness. Good times.

I was absolutely hanging out for the third and final instalment. Especially thrilled with the characters having aged...more

I feel so let down by this book.

Let's get one thing straight. It was definitely the weakest out of the three.

Belly has finally matured, and it has been truly wonderful seeing Belly transition from a young girl to the lady she is today. I feel like I grew up with her. And that makes her a little extra special for me. Meanwhile, we finally get to see things from Conrad' POV! Finally!!

But there is a BIG problem. We all know Conrad is the bad boy typical douche. We know he's wronged Belly...more
Let me start this by saying we'll always have summer probably might be the best book i have ever read . I am damn serious. Everything about it is perfect and i wouldn't have had it any other way.Throughout the book your debating whether belly should choose jeremiah or conrad. Halfway through it, i was pretty sure there wasnt going to be a happy ending which made me so sad, i actually cried. There so many emotions mixed into this. One minute your laughing and the next your crying (i admit it, i...more

Words cannot even begin to describe how mad I am after reading this book. I fell in love with the series since the first book came out, but now I can't believe it ended the way it did. First off, Jenny Han COMPLETELY changed the characters I had grown to love. Jeremiah was sweet, caring, and amazing, but in this book he was such a jerk I couldn't stand it! Secondly, nothing really happened in the book except for maybe three major events. This makes it move slow and repetitive. And then it all wr...more
When I first met Belly, Jeremiah and Conrad I didn't like Belly. She was too raw and honest about her flaws. It made me uncomfortable. But the more I thought about it, the more authentic Jenny Han had created her. I remember the summer I turned pretty. I remember my summer boyfriend and he will always hold a special piece of my heart. I was also an awkward girl suddenly in a pretty teenagers body. A lot like Belly.

So here we are now at the end of Belly's freshman year at college. Conrad is absen...more

Perfect,perfect,perfect. I cried so much. One of the best series I´ve ever read.
Favourite Quote: "It’s a known fact that in life, you can’t have everything. In my heart I knew I loved them both, as much as possible to love two people at the same time. Conrad and I were linked, we would always be linked. That wasn’t something I could do away with. I knew that now—that love wasn’t something you could erase, no matter how hard you tried."

I was extremely excited to read the final installment in the Summer series (so excited that I hugged the book and did my little happy dance...more

This was perfect.
I don't know how I'm going to wait a year for this book to come out!
I liked this book, despite the inner, nagging part of me that said not to. The thing is, I’ve grown up with The Summer I Turned Pretty series. I’ve commiserated with Belly, fell in love with Jeremiah and Conrad, and cried and smiled at all of the losses and triumphs, ups and downs as Belly grew up and matured. It’s a worn and torn Jenny Han novel that has a permenant home on my nightstand. It’s Shug or The Summer I Turned Pretty that I’ve turned to when I’ve had a bad day. So when I saw We’ll Al...more

As Jenny Han’s Summer series has been one of my favorite contemporary series in recent memory, I definitely had high expectations for WE’LL ALWAYS HAVE SUMMER. And yet I don’t think it was merely my high expectations that made the third and final Summer book somewhat of a disappointment for me. WE’LL ALWAYS HAVE SUMMER gave me the ending I had been rooting for since the first book, but it did so in a way that, I think, unfortunately sacrificed characterization and reader sympathy.

Two years pass...more

I think these series are like, my favorite series in the non-supernatural department, which is indeed saying a lot.

Before I read the book, I had a feeling that at the end of the book, it's going to be Conrad. It's always been, and the first love is always hard to forget. I would also choose him in the end if I was Belly, no matter how sweet Jere is. (goddamn she is freaking pretty!:D)

ahhhh Thank you so much, Jenny Han, for writing such a fanta...more
I am in love with this book. It's just WOW. That's all I can think to say about it. This is Jenny Han's third and final installment of The Summer Series. From the first page of The Summer I turned Pretty to the last page of Ig We'll Always Have Summer, I was completely and totally hooked! If you were in love with the first two, this one will definitely not disappoint. When I began this book I was scared and sad because I knew that Belly could only be with one of the Fisher boys, leaving the othe...more
In all honesty, I can't say this has been one of my favorite series, but I will say that it's good entertainment angst wise, and even though I wasn't exactly rooting for either Jeremiah or Conrad when I read the first two books, I like the way this one ended.
What was really meant to be.
We'll Always Have Summer, is sweet in all the ways young love is suppose to be and it reminds you that fate seems to have it's own plans.
All in all, a great ending to a fun series and I'm looking forward to seeing...more
I'm...in love with this book. The cover, even the title. I can tell it'll be a great one. I feel like adding the five stars already ;) But I should probably exit this page and stop torturing myself. Staring at this book makes me want to read it more.

This was a really good book. To be honest, it wasn't as good as the first two, but I enjoyed it nevertheless. I thought the setting was lovely and some of the characters were really wonderful. Taylor is, in my opinion, one of the best friends in YA fiction.
One problem I did have with the story, however, is Conrad and Jeremiah's characters. In the last book, "It's Not Summer Without You", Conrad was very much portrayed as the bad guy, and Jeremiah the good guy. In this book, they made Jeremiah so...more
I was lucky enough to be able to read the book before publication thanks to the Simon & Schuster galley grab!
The book took me on a whirlwind of emotions and didn't let go until I finished a few hours later. No matter what team you ship I think everyone will be satisfied. At the end of the book I came to understand everyones motivations and choices which is all the reader could ask for. As always Jenny Han handled everything beautifully and I think she will leave fans happy.
This is a review of the whole trilogy.

Belly loves Conrad. That is a truth that everyone in her life knows. He's the boy she has loved since she was a little girl and she spent her summers with his family at Cousins beach. Through out the trilogy we see how a crush, turns to attraction, turns to hatred and turns to an understanding that only comes when two people who know each other well, mature. Add to that Jeremiah, Conrad's little brother who has always loved Belly and you get drama wrapped in...more
Okay.! I am stomped i cant see belly gojbf down the isle with anyone but conrad. But wedding!? so not his style and i am soooooooo! Team conrad but i think when she gave that necalce back and she held jeres hand it was a singh that she moves on or at least think she did. And when and she and jere do become involved.and pllan to get married connie just watchs tgis all happens he loves her but he never gets the guts to say anything .and a girl only waits so long to be wanted..she doesnt want to ha...more
This is the last book in one of my favourite series’ of all time; I was so sad for it to come to an end, but I was also SO excited to see which Fisher boy she would end up with. This whole series has been a matter of one question; Conrad or Jeremiah? This series was like a Ping-Pong match, Belly’s feelings went back and fourth. It came to the point were I had no idea which boy would end up with Belly! The whole series brought an intense love triangle that left me devouring each book in this seri...more

I don't think there is any word that can describe this book and i don't know do I have more tears :)! The best book i've ever read. I couldn't believe that there is way to finish this book and that everybody will be happy! But there is! There is the best end that i could imagine! :) Jenny thank you for this! <3
Vicky N.

That one word could be my whole review.

I know I've mentioned this before, but I don't like Contemporary novels. Even now, every time I read/hear about a contemporary novel, I cringe & stop hearing/reading because truth is: I'm scared of them.

I'm scared of the hard truth: that there's a world out there WITHOUT magic & dream & cute vampires/werewolves/angels/demons (I think that covers all tastes & colors).

I roll my eyes & at their synopsis, the clichéish storyline...more

“He didn’t give me flowers or candy. He gave me the moon and the stars. Infinity

-Belly Conklin-”
“He came up and kissed me on my forehead, and before he stepped away, I closed my eyes and tried hard to memorize this moment. I wanted to remember him exactly as he was right then, how his arms looked brown against his white shirt, the way his hair was cut a little too short in the front. Even the bruise, there because of me.

Then he was gone.

Just for that moment, the thought that I might never see him again… it felt worse than death. I wanted to
run after him. Tell him anything, everything. Just don’t go. Please just never go. Please just always be near me, so I can at least see you.

Because it felt final. I always believed that we would find our way back to each other every time. That no matter what, we would be connected—by our history, by this house. But this time, this last time, it felt final. Like I would never see him again, or that when I did, it would be different, there would be a mountain between us.

I knew it in my bones. That this time was it. I had finally made my choice, and so had he. He let me go. I was relieved, which I expected. What I didn’t expect was to feel so much grief.

Bye bye, Birdie.
