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.

My Thoughts

“I know now that I don’t want to love or be loved in half measures. I want it all, and to have it all, you have to risk it all.”

This was our, me and my reading buddy Joyce, first read for the month of August. I’ve read To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before last year and I enjoyed it but I like PS I Still Love You more.

This book starts where the first book ends, Lara Jean’s letter to Peter Kavinsky. They’ve decided to give their relationship a second chance and this time it is for real. They’ve made some rules and one of them is to be honest with each other. However, being honest is quite hard when Peter continues to hang-out with Genevieve and a communication begins between Lara Jean and her old love John Ambrose.

This book focuses more on LJ’s lovelife and friendships but it still shows us her relationship with her family which is my favorite. The family dynamic in this book is strong and amazing. I cried a little while reading LJ’s conversation with her father.

Lara Jean can be annoying sometimes but nobody is perfect and this made her and all the characters real to me. I admired her for being a loving daughter and a cool sister to Margo and Kitty.

I love and hate Peter throughout the story! His personality reminds me of someone I know. And even though John Ambrose seems like a perfect guy like Josh in TATBILB, I would still choose Peter. (#TeamPeter)

Kitty remains my favorite character. I really want to have a sister like her, though most of the time she’s annoying and it doesn’t seems like she’s just ten years old. She’s still adorable and smart. I think she’s the younger version of Stormy.

I like Jenny Han’s writing style because it is fun and addicting. I’m happy about the ending but it felt rushed. Also, I want to know what happened to the other characters such as LJ’s father, Genevieve and John. I hope there will be a third (last) book.

If you are into cute, enjoyable and easy read, then this book is perfect for you.
