But when Conrad's mom dies, he withdraws from everyone and eventually disappears completely. Not sure where to start looking, Belly and Conrad's brother Jeremiah figure Conrad's college is a good place to start—but they soon learn he's actually at the fam...more

Favourite Quote: "I stared at him. Did he really say that? Did he remember? The way he looked back at me, one eyebrow raised, I knew he did. And this time, I was the one to look away.
Because I remembered. I remembered everything."
Don't you love it when the second book in a series is way better than the first? That is the case with It's Not Summer Without You. I enjoyed The Summer I Turned Pretty but sometimes f...more
I'm really surprised I actually liked this, Belly's still immature, but she didn't bother me as much. Plus, something actually happened in this book, I'm addicted here. (view spoiler)[Though I don't appreciate the love triangle. (hide spoiler)] It's also nice to see more of Jeremiah, since he was this really bland character in The Summer I Turned Pretty.

Cousins Beach was Belly's home. It was the only place she ever thought of. Every summer she visits the Cousins Beach but this time things have changed. Susannah, her mother's best friend had passed away and summer at Cousins Beach was no more. Why? Because Susannah was the only person who linked all of them together. Without her, it wouldn't be a perfect summer.
Belly has grown in this book. She's no more pouting and throwing tantrums. I liked Belly much better in this b...more
Belly is grieving two losses, one being her mothers best friend Susannah who was a mother figure to her, and Conrad who never really called back or initiated any interest after she left. Worse still, her mother seems to be in a world of her own, a world that Belly isn’t a part of. With her best friend forcing her to move on, and her mother ignoring her...more
The second book in the Summer trilogy has a lot of back-and-forthing. Belly flips from pining over Conrad to hating him in the flip of a heartbeat. Jenny Han also writes some of the book in Jeremy's POV, which is pretty much my favorite part. He's sweet and tr...more
dislike the name Belly
think Conrad is an ass
pull for Jeremiah!
This book feels a lot deeper than it's predecessor. I liked it, but it annoy's the crap out of me at the same time. I missed Susanna! Belly's Mother drove me insane... it's like the parents in these books are so clueless, but then when the author needs a hero they pull her brain out of no-man's land.
Conrad was frustrating to me; Can he please make up his mind already. Quit stringing Belly along. Seriously...more
The summers that Belly has looked forward to for the whole of her life will never be the same again. This summer, Belly is facing a boring summer at her own home with Taylor. So when she gets the phone call saying that Conrad has disappeared, she jumps at the chance to find him and see the Fisher boys again. But she has a choice to make. Conrad, or no Conrad?
I love Jenny H...more
Ok now that i've gotten that out...I'll get to my review. Right after my heartbeat slows down a bit. If it ever slows down! OMG talk about an emotional rollercoaster!! This book had be balling tears...my heart like literally shattered at least three times! I was on his side, I was on her sid...more
I've got to say, Jenny Han does contemporary right! These books are so easy to get lost into and you just can't put them down! I love watching the different relationships between characters develop and change. I love how these books incorporate both fun and pain, happiness and sadness, love and loss. This book had a bit more sadness in it than the first instalment, I really felt for all of the characters in their time of loss. I just feel...more
Uzeći sve u obzir i prvu i drugu i dio treće knjige koji sam pročitala (kojih pedeset stranica), stvarno bih voljela da na kraju Belly bude s Conradom! Držim fige da mi se želja ostvari!!
I wasn't a huge fan of this one... Belly was WAY more annoying and childish, and it was a chore to read about her. However, the ending was good and I feel like the last book will be better because she seems like she's finally done lusting after Conrad, which was part of what made her so annoying.
Being back at the beach house was different for them this time because...more
I don't know how you can't read these books and NOT become so incredibly invested in what happens to these characters....more
I am not a very huge fan of the first book,i only gave it a 3 star rating I like the book and everything but i just LIKED it nothing more nothing less. the second book of the series i would have to say that it leveled up on the previous one, the second book is so much better than the first one.
Why did I say so?
the second book of the series is about Belly, not having to spend her summer with the Fishers cause Sussanah just died and the fishers are i...more
I don't know about you but I can't decide which boy is better! bc after book 2 you really get to know Jeremiah and I started to appreciate his good character ( i have to say that conrad was difficult to understand at times ) I would like to see belly in the next book more independent and stronger! she shouldn't be runni...more
I'm not sure how I feel about this one.
In it's own way it's better then the first, but then I also feel like I wish I didn't read this one since I really liked the first one.
I don't like how it's still all up in the air between the brothers and Belly and I wish Conrad would just say what he means already, and Belly shouldn't be doing stuff if she doesn't mean it. Hearts will be broken, if they aren't already.
All of these characters are confused and torn up one way or another, I like th...more
