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

If there was a rating system that rated books based on how much a book fucked you up. This one would deserve a million stars. No book has ever fucked me up so b
EeeeEEEEEEEeeeee those are my feelings on this book.
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, every single thing, about it is perfect and i wouldn't want it any other way. The story is perfectly crafted and the characters, who by now we know better than we know ourselves, are back and making us fall in love with them all over again. But shit goes down nonetheless. Throughout the book you're debating whether belly should choose jeremiah or conrad. Halfway ...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

A bit of hesitation here about how much stars this really deserves. It's not really a question of why this book let me down compared to the other two, its more a question of how did it get this bad without Jenny Han realising..?

The summer collection by Jenny Han is usually the type of series I like to dig myself into in summer because I'm a pretty lonely person in the summer holidays.

Other than the fact that the first story dazzled me, left me awestruck and completely and utterly in love with b
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
This trilogy was wonderful!! I loved that it had so much deeper meaning than what the summary or the covers suggest. I felt so close to these characters and in the most simplest of ways.
I really love books where the setting takes on a character in itself and Cousins beach did that. I felt like I had grown up there and called it home as well.
The second book was definitely my favorite out of the trilogy and even though I don't really care for love triangles in books, somehow this one just worked
Jessica (priceiswong)
I am SO conflicted about this book.

I really liked it and it's safe to say that Jenny Han is one of my favorite contemporary authors. But the main reason why I'm feeling so confused, is I honestly HATED the first 100 pages or so of this book (because of the infuriating, annoying characters) But LOVED the last 150 pages or so... So I guess I just had to get through all that crap to get to the good stuff maybe?

I would definitely recommend this trilogy.. just prepare to deal with a LOT of emotions

I kind of just want to sit and cry in my room now.

I flew through these books so fast, you can seriously read them in a day. They made me feel so light and happy.


This quote is also my favourite from the book. I actually think it is now my new favourite quote;
"We didn't know what was ahead of us then. We were just two teenagers, looking up at the sky
So beautiful :')
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

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

At first, I was worried that this book may take away from the first two books of the trilogy, but to my surprise, it turned out great-- more than what I've actually thought.

In this final book of the series, the drama and romance became much deeper. This is the kind of finale that will absolutely transform you into a swooning mess. The storyline is too beautiful and heart-tugging. Believe it or not, Jenny Han's wr
A great conclusion. I just can't stress enough how unexpectedly heavy hearted this is!!

No estoy en condiciones para seguir viviendo.

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
I don't know how I'm going to wait a year for this book to come out!
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
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

NEW FAVE TRILOGY!-!1!1!1!!;2!,!:!
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
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

-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.
