PS I Still Love You by Jenny Han
Publication Date: May 26th 2015
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.
Note: Because this is the second book of a series, there WILL be To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before spoilers in this review. DO NOT read this review if you have not yet read the first book … you have been warned.
This review is so long overdue. I read this all the way back in 2016, which seems oh so very far away. But, I just had to write this review because the book so freaking good, and I need to recommend it to EVERYBODY.
So initial thoughts after finishing:
Asdfghjkl. What. The. Heck.
This book was a beautiful continuation of the series. After Lara Jean accepts her feelings for Peter, they continue their relationship for real. However, this is not without problems. SO MUCH HAPPENS, but Jenny Han does an exceptional job of striking a balance between a real teenage relationship and her own unique twist of a relationship. This makes Lara Jean x Peter moments so much fun to read, AND allows me to feel empathetic because it is relatable.
On the topic of being relatable, Lara Jean’s relationships with her sisters is another aspect of Han’s characters that makes this story so enjoyable. Margot and Kitty are important influences for her character development and add a nice depth to the book.
This book made me feel so many emotions. I loved watching Lara Jean work around her obstacles. The conflicts in this story touch so many aspects of a typical teenage life, and deals with them in a way that teaches the audience about how one might handle them. Han talks about romantic relationships, friendships, family relations, and much more.
Overall, I’d rate this book 4.5 stars out of 5. The 0.5 deduction is only because I don’t particularly like the whole Genevieve and Peter sideline story (personal thing).
Aaaand that wraps up my review for this book! The third and final installment of this series is coming out in May. I can’t WAIT for its release! Have you read this series yet?
