“Lara Jean, I think you half-fall in love with every person you meet. It’s part of your charm. You’re in love with love.”
My Review: I remember finishing ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ in one afternoon. It was a whirlwind of cuteness and once. I was in love with how adorable it was. So I was obviously ‘quite‘ excited to delve into this book. Unfortunately, I was left quite disappointed.
My reaction after reading this book:
Don’t get me wrong, this wasn’t a BAD book, but it wasn’t a great one either. I feel like this book was quite a step down from the first book. It didn’t have the same spark. My main problem with this book was the romance. Yes, I understand that it’s great to have relationships in books that are realistic and that I can’t always be rainbows and unicorns. BUT Lara Jean and Peter just felt like different characters. Lara Jean was acting immature and Peter was acting like a massive asshole. Ughh, I read this book for the cute romance and I wasn’t feeling it. There was no character development and no real plot in this book. And you’ll never guess it…. ….ANOTHER BOY WAS INTRODUCED!!!
Yes, John Ambrose McClaren was a perfectly nice boy, but WHY does there always have to be a love triangle in every YA book?!? I’m getting quite sick of it frankly.
The thing I love about Jenny Han’s books is is the family aspect. I love reading about family relationships ( One of the reasons why I love Gilmore Girls) and Lara Jean’s family is on all levels of cuteness.
Overall, this book was a fun read and had it’s cute moments, but I definitely didn’t enjoy this book as much as the first one.
My rating : ★★★ ( 3/5 )
