Lara Jean is having the best senior year a girl could ever hope for. She is head over heels in love with her boyfriend, Peter; her dad’s finally getting remarried to their next door neighbor, Ms. Rothschild; and Margot’s coming home for the summer just in time for the wedding.
But change is looming on the horizon. And while Lara Jean is having fun and keeping busy helping plan her father’s wedding, she can’t ignore the big life decisions she has to make. Most pressingly, where she wants to go to college and what that means for her relationship with Peter. She watched her sister Margot go through these growing pains. Now Lara Jean’s the one who’ll be graduating high school and leaving for college and leaving her family—and possibly the boy she loves—behind.
When your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?
“Never say no when you really want to say yes.”
I am soooo sad to have finished this incredible trilogy!
This is honestly one of my favourite series’ of all time now. I loved it so much.
I could read these books over and over again and never get sick of them, because they’re just that amazing. Omg, okay if you’ve read this far and you haven’t picked up these books yet, please do it!
“I guess that’s part of growing up, too–saying goodbye to the things you used to love.”
Okay, this series just makes me feel so warm and fuzzy. Every time I pick up the book, I get completely consumed in the story and with the characters.
It’s one of those books where you just forget where you are, forget about time, forget about everything on your mind and just read.
“It snuck up on me—growing up, I mean.”
The characters, ahhh, these are possibly my favourite group of characters I have ever read about. Every single one of them is unique and the relationships between everyone, whether that be romantic, friendship or family, are just so beautifully done.
I’m so sad to say goodbye to Lara Jean, aka. a Korean beauty version of me. She was the perfect protagonist, one whose mind I will seriously miss reading from. 😦
Peter Kavinsky is literally the epitome of book boyfriends. Swoooon, I love that guy.
Throughout the entire series, the family dynamic has been my favourite part of these books. That never changed, in fact my love for the Song family only grew more with each instalment. (especially this last book)
“She always picked love; she always picked adventure. To her they were one and the same.”
Jenny Han is such a brilliant writer, I cannot fault her, and I am so excited to read her other trilogy!
Read. These. Books… Now.
