When To All the Boys I've Loved Before came out I remember being super excited and eager to read it. Waiting for P.S. I Still Love You brought back all those amazing feelings of excitement and anticipation. Reading it was just the ultimate treat. Revisiting these characters didn't fail at putting a smile on my face. It evoked such a sense of keen happiness. I just didn't want for it to be over.
P.S. I still Love You starts just where To All The Boys Left off. Lara Jean and Peter are now together in a relationship and yes, for real this time! We get to see how their relationship developed and witness all of their ups and downs. While I do love me some Peter Kavinsky, the book was not solely based on his and Lara Jean's relationship. In fact, it seemed like there wasn't as much of Peter in comparison to the first installment. That of which is not really a bad thing. Like all of Jenny Han's other marvelous books, this one had the perfect balance of family, friendship, and of course, love.
To me this book packed a bit more of punch because there was a larger amount of drama in it. At first there is the whole dilemma of a video of Lara and Peter. A new love interest from Lara Jeans past! And also some things with Genevieve. I loved how we get to know more about Genevieve and Lara Jeans past friendship. How close they were and the reason behind their falling out. Jenny Han has this way of making her characters seem so tangible. Along with making the situations they're going through seem all the more realistic. That's why I will always love her books.
I, like I'm sure everyone else has, have fallen in love with the Song sisters. I love how strong of a bond they have and how they all look out for each other. I love how distinct each one is. Especially Kitty! That girl has so much sass. I would not mind another book based on Kitty when she's all grown up (I would love that actually.). However, like with most fictional characters, there comes a time when you just want to shake them. That happened to me quite a few times with Lara Jean. She could so naive sometimes! It was a bit frustrating, but I guess that's just part of it all. It didn't really make me love the story any less.
If you haven't read this series yet, or any Jenny Han book for that matter, I definitely suggest you do!
