Disclosure: I selected this audiobook from the audible romance package and was not asked to review it by anyone. Doing so is solely my personal choice. All opinions in this review are my own and represent my honest thoughts on the book.

Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control in this heartfelt novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Summer I Turned Pretty series.

What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them…all at once?

Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she’s written. One for every boy she’s ever loved – five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control.

I loved it, and would recommend it to others.

Review

If this isn’t cute then what is? Really loved everything about this book, the simplicity of Lara Jean, the coolness of Peter, the relationship between the Song sisters, everything. Jenny has written it so beautifully that you don’t even realize that the book is over and you find yourself wishing you had read it slowly. Thankfully, there are two more in this series which I can’t wait to get to.

Of course the book has no ending and I definitely prefer how the movie ended. I also thought that a few essential things were missing, like, I did not really see Lara Jean’s character grow apart from taking household responsibilities and there was no real romance. I hope to see these in the next book.

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? 

Rating

I enjoyed it, but wouldn’t read it again.

Review

This one was also a charming read but definitely not as good as To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. It was a little less light hearted and a bit more emotions were captured here. I really liked John Ambrose McClaren a lot however I think I’ll always picture Lara Jean with Peter Kavinsky. Okay I get it that they are all kids but I don’t understand why does PK keep going back to Genevieve even though he is madly in love with LJ? 

I thought the end came in too soon after all the high school drama that was built up. LJ seemed more confused than ever. The book dragged quite a bit and I’m not sure if this sequel was necessary. Some parts of it was included in the movie and I loved the way that concluded. Don’t know exactly what to expect from the third instalment.

#3 Always And Forever, Lara Jean

Title: Always And Forever, Lara Jean
Author: Jenny Han

Series: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before (Book 3)
Narrators: Laura Knight Keating
Length: 9 hrs 05 mins 
Release Date: 02 May, 2017
Format: Audiobook
Genre: Romance | Contemporary | Young Adult

Disclosure: I selected this audiobook from the audible romance package and was not asked to review it by anyone. Doing so is solely my personal choice. All opinions in this review are my own and represent my honest thoughts on the book.

Lara Jean is having the best senior year.

And there’s still so much to look forward to: a class trip to New York City, prom with her boyfriend Peter, Beach Week after graduation, and her dad’s wedding to Ms. Rothschild. Then she’ll be off to college with Peter, at a school close enough for her to come home and bake chocolate chip cookies on the weekends.

Life couldn’t be more perfect!

At least, that’s what Lara Jean thinks . . . until she gets some unexpected news.

Now the girl who dreads change must rethink all her plans—but when your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?

I loved it, and would recommend it to others.

Review

This one totally took me back to my time of college applications. I could feel the anxiety and rush that LJ felt and it all seemed so real. Always And Forever, Lara Jean was definitely a much more mature read compared to the other two. Jenny has done it again, she pulled me right into the final book of the series. Although I do wonder if it would have been better as a standalone.

I liked the relationship between LJ and PK from the first book itself but I think the best relationship was between the Song sisters. This one actually showed me how LJ grew up in one year and started making bold and difficult choices. The ending was adorable! Perhaps the perfect closure to the trilogy.

I highly recommend To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before series for all YA readers and I would definitely encourage you to read it once at least. It’s a light and fluffy romance so don’t go into it expecting too much apart from the cuteness that its full of. 

And if you choose to read it as audiobooks, you’ll love the narration by Laura. She has done an amazing job in all the three books!

    Lovely reviews! It’s great to hear that audiobooks are working so well for you!

    I didn’t really love this trilogy like I agree it’s cute and all but I feel I am past that age of boy problems and making stupid decisions…lol

    • Ayushi

      Thanks! Oh yes, I’m definitely past that age too. But once in a while, I like reading such books just like I love watching Disney movies 🙂 Brings me joy!

  • Jen

    I love/hate reading a book that I wish I hadn’t read yet do I could read it all over again only slower…so I get what you’re saying about this one. One of the books I felt like that about was The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.

    A general question with regard to these audiobooks…who reads them and how are they read? Is there more than one narrator?

    Great post. Love your ongoing passion for books. X

    • Ayushi

      Definitely with you about The Alchemist!

      It completely depends, some books the authors narrate themselves, most of them are narrated by professionals. So you can expect accents, voice modulations, etc. as per the story demands. There may be one or more narrators. And it’s basically someone reading out the book to you so it’s as good as reading. Try the free audible trial, nothing to lose, if you don’t like it, just cancel the subscription after your trial is over. But I think you’ll love it 🙂

    • Ayushi

      Thank you Katlyn. The entire series is very cute. It made me go back to my high school days. If you love reading YA and fiction, you should give this a go 🙂

  • Joanie

    I loved this series! I could really connect with LJ and feel what she felt throughout the series. I loved the dynamic with PK from the beginning as well.

    • Ayushi

      Agree, agree and agree! PK is such a perfect boyfriend. And I wish I was even 10% good in baking as LJ is… But God totally forgot to give me the cooking genes!
