"There's a Korean word my grandma taught me. It's called jung. It's the connection between two people that can't be severed, even when love turns to hate. You still have those old feelings for them; you can't ever completely shake them loose of you; you will always have tenderness in your heart for them."


This book does many explosive things to my heart.

Every time I read a new novel by Han, I am always assaulted by these strong emotions. In a way it reminds me of our quintessential home where I grew up.  It simply hits me at the right spots. It makes me reminisce certain childhood memories. That is pure talent. I get nostalgic and pensive. It sounds sad, but it’s absolutely astonishing, very few books could incite those feelings from me.

P.S. I Still Love You opens right after where the first book left it off. Lara Jean on at the verge of making it up to Peter. And she’s slowing navigating her life. A reader could expect, kissing, scandal, intense jealousy, family love, and more kissing.

Like with To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, I also annihilate this book. It is fast paced and very easy to get into the flow of the plot. Though at times, I find myself frustrated, but obviously I got over that nasty feeling.

What I adored about this series is the fundamental role of Lara Jean’s dad and sisters to the story. I’ve seen some readers begging to read more books that include parents in the plot. And hey! this is the book for you. They are integral part of the story just as much as the protagonist.

We have a Korean American main character(s). Lara Jean and the Song sisters heritage are essential to the story. Han explores some of the common Korean culture. I’m certain micro aggression was also briefly covered in the first book. It’s amazing, even if it doesn’t take a reign over the plot.

The romance is cute just as I was expecting. And like I said there would also be jealousy which is one of my favorite tropes as long as the guy isn’t an Alpha asshole about it.

Highlight of the book: There are plenty of “you don’t need a man to fulfill you and all the beautiful, independent feminism talk.”

I will always boast about Young Adult books that doesn’t steer clear from “sex”. I love books that stays very true. There are some teenagers who genuinely doesn’t care about this subject, but how about those people who does? I’m very pleased P.S. I Still Love You didn’t skip that part.

P. S. I Still Love You is a satisfying conclusion. Fans of Jenny Han won’t be disappointed.

Courtney Davis It was everything I could ask for!!!! The ending was a little rushed but I definitely feel like all that happened in the book needed to happen for them to get to that point in their relationship
