Always and Forever, Lara Jean

Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han

3.5 stars

I all but ran to the bookstore on release day for this book I was dying to read it so bad. A surprise third book in the Lara Jean series? I WAS ON IT. And while I didn’t love it, I have to admire Jenny Han for bringing out that reaction in me. When purchasing this book the nice teller at Barnes and Noble recommended to me other books by this author she enjoyed, and I’ll be sure to bump them up my tbr asap!

This started out strong and about midway through lost its luster for me. By the end I was questioning why we even got a third book when not much really happened. What I remember most is mason jars, chocolate chip cookies, and Kitty. Peter redeemed himself a lot since the last book, but again, by the end I was just left wondering, why? You could say I was a bit underwhelmed with this book.

I love that Jenny Han is writing romance for teens that isn’t white washed and covering real issues they deal with on a day to day basis. I know I’ll be recommending this series a lot in the future (in fact, I already have!)

One thought on “Always and Forever, Lara Jean

  1. Wonderful – thanks for sharing your thoughts. I’m OBSESSED with this trilogy. The first was my absolute favorite just because I think it’s hilarious how Lara Jean and Peter end up together, not to mention all the drama going on with Genevieve. The third was probably my least favorite of the three as I don’t feel like all that much happens and I was a bit unsatisfied with the ending, everything in the end just weirdly seemed to fall into place a little to perfectly.
    Anyways, I look forward to more posts from you in the future… Happy Reading! 🙂
