December 2, 2015
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Chic lit
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.
This would have been a lot better if Jenny Han gave us a little more different ending. Well, at least for me.
Honestly, I was expecting a bigger twist or I would have rated this with more stars otherwise.
Peter became a total bull! I don’t like how he became a dick to Lara Jean. I mean, okay I get all these “jung” stuff going on with Genevieve. But he’s not the same Peter from TATBILB. WHY THE DRASTIC CHANGE? I missed the cocky but sweet Peter.
On the other hand, Lara Jean can be such a kid sometimes, but she also developed into a more likable character. I admired how she can control her emotions and all the teenage angst here. The “big sister” relationship with Kitty here was also more effective. By the way, Kitty gets the trophy for my favorite character.
John Ambrose McClaren deserved more credits too. I gave my all out support for this guy after Peter’s behaviour became so sour. Lara Jean can get pretty greedy with these guys sometimes, but hey, I was a little impressed with her development and maturity here, she deserves better than Peter (on his goddamn attitude).
I also don’t like the fact that after all those shits Genevieve has pulled since, we’re now supposed to feel sorry for her because she’s the victim in the very first place? I cringed big time on this. Seriously?
Anyway, much from my annoyance at some points, I still liked this nevertheless. Still pretty entertaining and very light. I just wished that Jenny Han has pulled a more effective ending. I didn’t really like the ending. Sorry.
