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.

Lara Jean keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her.

They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her, these are ones she’s written. One for every boy she’s ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she can pour out her heart and soul and say all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control.

my thoughts

“I think I see the difference now, between loving someone from afar and loving someone up close. When you see them up close, you see the real them, but they also get to see the real you.”

I didn’t think twice on buying this. The title is catchy, i love the cover and it’s my first Jenny Han book. I was expecting to read a lot of handwritten love letters but it’s not, there are like 3 or 4 short letters. At first I thought It’s Gogo who sent the letters, but I’m wrong.

I can somehow relate to Lara Jean when it comes to “costume parties”. I can only be Yoruichi (Bleach) even I want to be Fujiko. Hahaha! Back to the book, I like Josh more than Peter but I like Peter’s character more than Josh. I also want to have a little sister like Kitty. She’s so smart and adorable.

I’ve read that Ms. Han is working on the sequel and the title is “P.S. I Love You“.
