Review: Always and Forever Lara Jean by Jenny Han

Always and Forever Lara Jean by Jenny Han
Publisher: Scholastic
Publication Date: April 6th 2017
My rating: 5 stars.  



P.S I Still Love you was one of my favourite reads last year, there wasn’t a lot I could remember about this book when going into Always and Forever Lara Jean,  but despite this however, this did not take away the excitement that I was feeling going into this book. I was anxious with the way things could potentially end, but also so happy to be with these great characters once more. Lara Jean really has come a long way since we first met her in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, she’s grown more confident and really become her own person. Still however Lara Jean finds herself having to make important decisions in this book once again, she’s got a beautiful relationship with Peter, but what’s going to happen with college? Will they even end up at the same one? And if they don’t will their relationship be able to last? I really did feel for Lara Jean at times, there’s pressure from her sister and her mother who always said never to be with your boyfriend at college, but this is Peter we’re talking about. Peter was my absolute favourite, I couldn’t but help fall for him more as the series progressed, and once again his considerate and tender side came out in full force with this latest instalment, and I was honestly a goner. There was nothing more that I wanted that Peter and Lara Jean’s relationship to last and I had my fingers crossed that this would be the case until the very last page.

Once again I was glad that the family dynamics came through strong in this book, Han really did a wonderful job with this. I loved being back with Lara Jean’s family, Kitty and Margot once again bought a lot of drama to the story, but also had me laughing out loud several times, they definitely made me hugely grateful for having my sisters in my life. Always and Forever Lara Jean was a fantastic follow up to one of my all time favourite series, the ending although I was left happy with I was definitely left longing for more. Han once again creates a wonderful set of characters with fantastic friendships, unforgettable romances and a family everyone would wish to have in Always and Forever Lara Jean. I for one would highly recommend giving this series a go!

  5. I am so so excited to binge-read this series this summer, Jasprit. It sounds so perfect and I am beyond eager to meet Lara Jean and her family and of course, totally ready to swoon over Peter. I'm glad this was a hit for you. :)

  6. I still haven't read this series but I know it's among your favorites, Jasprit! I'll definitely have to add it to my TBR for the summer since each book in this series keeps getting consistently good reviews from you and I love character growth, which seems to be a strong component of this series. Wonderful review, dear!!

  7. Oh man. I have the first book and I think the last book is on its way to me via the publisher. A little wary of this series at first, tbh. But I trust you. Lol.

  8. Ahhhhhhh! So I'm guessing it ends well! I'm going to be reading this book VERY soon so you definitely do not need to answer that. I loved the first two books (though the first more than the second, I think), and I cannot wait to finally read this one. Whenever my preorder gets here... *whistles impatiently*

    Wonderful review, Jasprit! Have a fantastic week. =)

  9. I've heard a lot about Jenny Han but other than an anthology story I haven't read her work. These sound like a very nice continuing story though, and it is nice to see a great family dynamic in YA reads. Glad this one was so good!
