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?


If I didn’t create this list, I wouldn’t have found out that I haven’t finished this series yet, hahaha. Seeing that there’s only 1 remaining book from this series that I haven’t read yet, I decided to start with this one.

And you know what’s the first thing that I noticed when I started this book? The writing style. There’s just something about Jenny Han’s writing style that is so refreshing to read. I’m not sure how to explain it, but I just love reading it.

For this last book of this series, I am giving it a 3.5 star rating. Which is the lowest rating I gave compared to the first and second books. I think it’s because I find this one too easy? From start to finish, everything just seems too good to be true (except for that conflict ofcourse). I normally like this kind of thing, but it was the last book of the series so I guess I expected a lot. But it wasn’t a total letdown since I really liked the conflict. It just felt so raw to me. I don’t know how to explain it hahaha, but that part made me appreciate their love for each other even more, especially on Peter’s end. It was just sooooo good. I also love how they were able to fix their relationship. I was expecting something really cliche actually, so it was a relief that the author didn’t go on that route. It was simple but exudes emotion, which is exactly what I like.

Aside from the romance, I also love the family aspect in this series. I always love reading about Lara Jean’s family, especially her relationship with her sister.

What I also love about this story is that there’s no over the top drama so my overall reading experience has zero hate but just 100% love. I still want to read more though, but with that ending, I guess it’s up to us to imagine what’s next, *wink
