Review

Better than the first book, but still just a cute contemporary (so by no means amazing).

Starting off right where the last book left off, Jenny Han jumps right into the story! This was much more fast-paced than the first book which made it a little more intriguing. Lara Jean’s character development also made this story more intriguing as she ever-so-slightly becomes more outgoing and gutsy.

The one story element I didn’t like was the ending though! It’s made childishly clear that the lesson of the story is that people in your life come and go – but I wish the ending focused more on an exciting plot!! Lara Jean didn’t end up with who I wanted her to; I mean, it seemed so obvious that the other one was the right choice! C’mon Lara Jean!

With all that said, this story continued to develop Lara Jean’s cutesy, instagram-esque life which is what most of us love most about this book anyway. It makes you feel warm inside – like gooey cookies, pink ribbons and fluffy pajamas. Just be prepared for lots more baking!

I can’t say that I was disappointed, I can’t say that I was wowed – it’s pretty much just what you would expect the sequel to be. But, it’s so short that it’s totally worth finishing the series.
