❝One day all of this will be proof, proof that we were here, proof that we loved each other. It’s the guarantee that no matter what happens to us in the future, this time was ours.❞


After delaying my reading for as long as I possibly could when it comes to Jenny's books, I am finally bringing Lara Jean's story to a close. For sure this time lol. And I must say, my heart truly aches. Peter Kavinsky, Lara Jean, the Song/Covey family, and just these books in general are so near and dear to my he

Always and Forever, Lara Jean is a marvelous conclusion to this trilogy. I'm not convinced Lara Jean and Peter K.'s story ends in a duology. When Jenny Han announced there will be a third and final book, I'm so delighted because my prayer to book gods for a one last hurrah has been answered and my waiting game is WORTH IT! Another bet is on for whose ship is going to sail and guys, I'm glad to say MY SHIP SAILS! OMG! MY. SHIP. FUDGING.

"Never say no when you really want to say yes."

To All the Boys I've Loved Before is a very light and simple trilogy. I don't think I really needed to read it - I don't think I would have missed out on anything - but it was fun anyway. And sometimes a lighthearted and gentle read is all you really need.

Compared to the other books in the series, Always and Forever, Lara Jean is my least favourite one. First of all because it is missing a plot. Here and there were some exciting moments, but no real

JOHN AMBROSE MCCLAREN IS A BEAUTIFUL NAME. HE DESERVED MORE IN THE SERIES. HE'S SUCH A PRECIOUS CINNAMON ROLL, TOO GOOD AND PURE FOR THIS WORLD.

I am so excited about this but why is everyone shipping Lara and John whatshisface?? Like I've spent the last two books just waiting for Lara to get with Peter and if that all of a sudden changes with book three then I think I will cry. Seriously. Maybe I need to read P.S. I still Love You again because I just don't see the appeal for John with two last names that I can't remember. I honestly spent the most of that book being like "who the hell is this John fellow and where is Peter?!" Is anyone ...more

2.25/5 stars

Don't be the girl who goes to college with a boyfriend.

I must have read an entirely different series than everyone else.

I must have. It’s the only reasonable explanation.

I always see reviews stating that these books are so cute and relatable? They leave me befuddled because I find them to be neither. Cute? No. Relatable? No. Annoying? Yes. Unnecessary? Yes.

Me, when this book was over:

I absolutely adored the conclusion to Lara Jean and Peter K's love story! The end had me smiling huge with tears rolling down my cheeks. Love this trilogy so much! Highly recommended for YA lovers.
It all started with a love letter.

What I want from this book:
-More Song/Covey sisters cuteness and family moments
-Lara and Peter navigating a healthy relationship
-Lara Jean being her adorable endearing self
-John Ambrose McLaren finding a nice girl that is not Lara Jean

What I don't need:
-John Ambrose inserting himself back into an already resolved love triangle

GAH THE FEELS IN THIS BOOK ARE OVERWHELMING
Lara Jean knows she loves Peter but when their future plans go awry and outside pressures seep in, will they be able to make it through? Or would it be best if they called it quits?

I was going to give this book 4.5/stars but decided on 5 because of how it made me think of it and feel days after finishing reading.

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.

Okay, Jenny Han, bring it on. BUT DON'T MESS WITH LARA JEAN & PETER! That ship must sail forever and always or we are going to have a problem!

When I read the first two books everyone always said "wow the main character is so immature and annoying to read about" and I never thought much of it. Two year later I am a completely different human than the one who had read the first two and… wow. It was pretty hard to take the main character seriously. I found myself rolling my eyes and even laughing at some of the things she said and did (not in a good way). This book wasn't my favorite and I'll be real and say I skimmed the last half of it ...more

WHY DO I KEEP HATING EVERY BOOK I READ

This is actually like the 5th book in a row I've read and not cared for!? And it sucks cause I was kinda looking forward to this one? SOMEONE SEND HELP.

It's just that after finishing this, I can't help but think: why this book was necessary? I really didn't care for anything that happened and I kept hoping for something... more. Especially with the ending, cause I was expecting an epilogue that showed Peter and Lara Jean married with kids and still super in

I'm so happy with the way things wrapped up in this book! My baby, Peter Kavinsky! All kinds of adorable-ness. I'm so glad a third book came out! Lara Jean really came into her own in this book. I so admire that she just sticks to her morals and values! Headstrong and fierce. The family aspect was as heartwarming as ever! I was gushing throughout! It's definitely my favourite book in the trilogy and the ending was just so satisfying. Oh, Lara Jean.
Trina (Between Chapters)
Very cute. Sometimes Lara Jean's controlling tendencies really stressed me out while reading, but I enjoyed this much more than book 2 and it seemed like a realistic teenage relationship. This was a satisfying conclusion to the series, but the book was building up to a couple of big events that we never got to see happen and I kind of wish it had been just a little longer, or other scenes cut out to fit those in, or even that we had an extra epilogue!

Chelsea (chelseadolling reads)
While this book didn't exactly go in the direction that I was hoping it would, I still loved it so much. This series to me is the perfect contemporary series and I wouldn't change it for the world. I can't believe it's over now! I'm crossing my fingers that Jenny will return to the Song girls in like 10 years with an adult novel bc I would love love love to see where they've all ended up. So sad that this series is over :c
Romie
Why does it feel like the end of something ?
I guess I feel this way because that's what this book is about. The end of an era.

#Saying Goodbye
This book is about Lara Jean realizing it's the end of her High School years, the end of something she's familiar with. And it's freaking scary. I understood how LJ felt. It hurt me to experience the end of your High School years all over again. Because, really, we love what we're familiar with, we love the security of High School... at least that's what

Sue (Hollywood News Source)
I always knew it's going to end up like this. Always and Forever, Lara Jean didn't restart the love triangle drama between Lara Jean and Peter. However, it dealt with their preparation for college. It's very domestic, and heartwarming. I love it with a few meh moments and objections.

What you can expect: pop culture reference, family love, sister bonding, Lara Jean and Peter being cute, some angst, a bit of unnecessary drama.
