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."

I shouldn't be laughing, but dear God, do I find that ironic.

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.

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.

This was definitely a more somber and emotional read than The Summer I Turned Pretty, but I really liked it! I couldn't give it a full 5/5 because I still think Belly is annoying and childish at times which bothers me, but I read the whole book in about four hours! If you loved the first book like I did, definitely read this one!
This series is the definition of a 'summery read'. It makes me regret all the summers I didn't spend at a gorgeous beach house, eating blueberry muffins, swimming in the ocean whilst having multiple cute guys falling in love with me.... :')
I had a lot of mixed emotions about each of the characters and I kind of loved that. They're all flawed and just so, human! Although Belly and Conrad were definitely a little irritating at times. :') The ending felt very abrupt which was a bit of a shame ...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
This book made me an emotional mess. I can't even write a proper review. Damn you Jenny Han!!
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.
The first book was a little meh. But this one, oh god.
Its too childish i think. The typical love triangle, between two brothers and the girl. The girl switches from guy to guy, and is confused.
I mean, its cute and all, but i feel like its an overly used cliche.
Don't get me wrong I LOVE Jenny Han, but this trilogy... is disappointing me. Still i will read the third book, because i ...more
I was warned that I would cry, but MAN I was not expecting that.
It's very apparent in this book that the relationship between Belly and Conrad is not a healthy one. It's mentioned at least 3 times that she would come running if he called her. Add the fact that Susannah's passed away and it adds another layer of sadness and darkness. They're both h ...more
I just started this today and even though I've been so tired and just wanted to sleep, I wanted to finish this even more. And now I really want to start the third book. ...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
Jenny Han had me smitten all over again! This book is one of those well-narrated sequels I have come across with. Very well done!
Poignant, dramatic, and compelling-- there are so many things I'd like to describe about this book. And there are several things that make this book even more phenomenal.
First, the characters. They are simply amazing you can't hep but root for them. Second, the plot. Jenny Han really does contemporary right. I ...more
