P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han

Hi again. This time it's all about Jenny Han. So lets just cut to the chase then!

This time it's P.S I Still Love You, this book has clearly been stated that it is one half of a two-part serial. This is because it is meant to be 'two-halves of a heart' which if left to me, is actually a pretty good concept - rather than dragging something out for the sake of it.

'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?' - Extract from Goodreads

So when it comes to romance and stuff like that, we always know that at some point there are going to be some very much cringe-worthy moments, but also some really treasurable moments as well. This definitely speaks for itself when it is in the young adult genre - not that i hate it at all, i find the genre quite interesting and diverse. Anyway, there was a load of times when i wanted to hurl the book straight towards the wall. Which is saying a lot for me - especially when i am one of those people who pretty much has some sort of OCD with keeping my books in 'shop-condition'. I think this is more to do with the fact that i believe it might be worth more, but i know that in reality it probably is just going to be worth hardly anything once you crack the first page on the spine.

Anyway, getting back to the topic at hand, there was some moments in this book which i really felt like it was heading somewhere great. Of course that is until something much bigger happens which changed the whole perception of the character. For instance, the thing that really frustrated me is that there was an event that happened in the previous book, that the main character, Lara Jean, could not stop talking about to the point that you just wanted to give up reading entirely. It just felt like, just get on with your life than worrying about some petty people. It kind of sent vibes which was like she was a bit immature about the situation. Just get over yourself.

I think that i might go now. But before i do i will give my rating which i have done for so long.

Overall Rating: ***
