PS I Still Love You by Jenny HanP.S. I STILL LOVE YOU by Jenny Han Book Review
Series: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, #2
Publication Date: Date
Rating: – Exceeds Expectations |

Book Summary: Lara Jean didn’t expect to really fall for Peter.
She and Peter were just pretending. Except suddenly they weren’t. Now Lara Jean is more confused than ever.
When another boy from her past returns to her life, Lara Jean’s feelings for him return too. Can a girl be in love with two boys at once?

In this charming and heartfelt sequel to the New York Times bestseller To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, we see first love through the eyes of the unforgettable Lara Jean. Love is never easy, but maybe that’s part of what makes it so amazing.

Book Review Overview:

  • Lara Jean is my spirit animal
  • I can’t get enough of the Song sisters!
  • Not as good as the first book, but still a satisfying read

I bought a book! An actual hardcover book! Despite wanting to support the publishing industry, I admit I’m a huge fan of the library. So you know it’s a big deal when I actually buy a copy of a book. After months of waiting, I finally got to read P.S. I STILL LOVE YOU by Jenny Han, the sequel to To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.

I’ve been listening to a lot of audiobooks lately, but I haven’t had a chance to review most of them. Here’s a quick overview of the good and the bad.

Read But Not Reviewed
Fire With Fire by Jenny Han and Siobhan VivianFire with Fire by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian

Summary: Lillia, Kat, and Mary had the perfect plan. Work together in secret to take down the people who wronged them. But things didn’t exactly go the way they’d hoped at the Homecoming Dance.

Not even close.

For now, it looks like they got away with it. All they have to do is move on and pick up the pieces, forget there ever was a pact. But it’s not easy, not when Reeve is still a total jerk and Rennie’s meaner than she ever was before.

And then there’s sweet little Mary…she knows there’s something seriously wrong with her. If she can’t control her anger, she’s sure that someone will get hurt even worse than Reeve was. Mary understands now that it’s not just that Reeve bullied her—it’s that he made her love him.

Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, burn for a burn. A broken heart for a broken heart. The girls are up to the task. They’ll make Reeve fall in love with Lillia and then they will crush him. It’s the only way he’ll learn.

It seems once a fire is lit, the only thing you can do is let it burn…

I love audiobooks with multiple narrators – especially when the book has multiple perspectives. It prevents me from getting confused, but each speaker also adds a different personality to their character. Fire with Fire had an awesome twist towards the end. For the most part, I definitely did not see it coming. Despite the awesome plot twist, I’m still not a fan of the book. I found the revenge plot to be really childish and petty and mean. It’s not my kind of contemporary read, so I’m not sure if I will continue on with the series.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny HanTO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE by Jenny Han Book Review
Series: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, #1
Publication Date: April 15th 2014 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Rating: – Exceeds Expectations |

Book Summary: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister’s ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.

Book Review Overview:

  • I love the Song girls
  • One of the few love triangles / love squares that I don’t have a problem with
  • Looking forward to the sequel! I want it NOW!!!

First of all, let me just say that TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE by Jenny Han must be some kind of amazing to bring me back from the blogging dead.

I took advantage of the e-book sale and bought a copy for $1.99. I don’t usually buy e-books (libraries, not piracy) but I’ve been putting off from reading this book way too long. Despite the great reviews from other fellow bloggers, I have to admit that I was still skeptical before picking up the book. As you may recall, I had a love/hate relationship with Jenny Han’s previous series. Much to my surprise, TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE by Jenny Han completely blew me away. After reading so many Jenny Han books, this is the first book that I’ve really, really enjoyed.

Tiny Cooper is not the world's gayest person, and he is not the world's largest person, but I believe he may be the world's largest person who is really, really gay, and also the world's gayest person who is really, really large.
