Review | I did not ship Kavinsky and Lara Jean in the first book, but I do now | Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han

“Never say no when you really want to say yes.”




Lara Jean’s letter-writing days aren’t over in this surprise follow-up to the New York Times bestselling To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You.

Lara Jean is having the best senior year a girl could ever hope for. She is head over heels in love with her boyfriend, Peter; her dad’s finally getting remarried to their next door neighbor, Ms. Rothschild; and Margot’s coming home for the summer just in time for the wedding.

But change is looming on the horizon. And while Lara Jean is having fun and keeping busy helping plan her father’s wedding, she can’t ignore the big life decisions she has to make. Most pressingly, where she wants to go to college and what that means for her relationship with Peter. She watched her sister Margot go through these growing pains. Now Lara Jean’s the one who’ll be graduating high school and leaving for college and leaving her family—and possibly the boy she loves—behind.

When your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?

“We’re not the same as Margot and Sanderson or anybody else. We’re you and me.”



I prefer the first book because it had more originality in it and the plot was more than just the love story itself. And it made me so sad that what got me interested to read the book completely disappeared from the story: The Letters. I thought that the books would revolve around the letters being sent out but it saddened and annoyed m that it only happened in the first book.


Though this book just barealy passed my standards to become the favorite in the series. I have to admit that I did not ship Kavinsky and Lara Jean at first but this book suddenly easily made me love them. It was so much sweeter, romantic and showed the reality of graduating high school.



Lara Jean annoyed me to no end so many times in this book, I’m sorry. She kept changing her mind about everything and I just wanted to shout at her like GURL. MAKE. UP. YO. MIND. For the most of the book I was just figuring out if they were going to break up or not.

Peter Kavinsky is so cute and sweet even though he is essentially an a–hole. He was the one who actually made this book bearable and made me want to finish the book. Even if they weren’t my main ship at first this book made me end up loving them despite the plot going in circles.



Jenny Han did not let me down with the quotes, moral and life lessons. It still hade the same idea and theme as the first book.


“I guess that’s part of growing up, too–saying goodbye to the things you used to love.”


This book did seem like a filler and an epilogue in the series though, it was more on the sweet and romantic side. It focused less on the plot written out on the first book and more just the love story itself. A nice quick read for readers who are in need of a romantic, sweet love story.
