Unlike the previous two installments in the series, Always and Forever, Lara Jean has no embarrassing plot catalyst, which was a relief to me as someone who suffers from vicarious embarrassment. In To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Lara Jean was forced to face up to her past crushes—including her sister’s ex-boyfriend—when a box of her old love letters got mailed out. In P.S. I Still Love You, her tentative new relationship with Peter was tested when a video of them making out in a hot tub on a school trip was posted to an anonymous Instagram account. Always and Forever, Lara Jean doesn’t rely on any such device, and the book does not suffer for it. Jenny Han really captures the essence of senior year, and strikes the perfect balance in her conclusion to this series.

To some these books may be too cutesy, but to me they are the definition of feel-good. I hate using the word "clean" to describe it, but it's what it is - Good, clean, fun! I freaking adore Peter, and Kitty is the BEST. I'm sad I won't be able to read more of this family and their life, but it ended well and I'm happy with it!

The final chapter of Lara Jean and Peter's love story. It all started with a love letter and now they are preparing to go way to college together. Not every love story is perfect. Their plan was to go to UVA together but that all changes when Lara Jean doesn't get in and instead gets into a college three hours away. This is where their love story takes a turn and tests their relationship. They start to argue and feel distant from each other, but luckily, like most love stories, it's happily ever after for the two of them. Rating 4.5 out of 5 stars

Lara Jean finally has everything that she wants: a perfect boyfriend, her father is engaged to her next-door neighbor and Margot is coming home for the wedding.  Unfortunately, nothing stays the same and lately Lara Jean has  finally understood the true meaning of this saying. As she begins to choose which colleges to apply to, she realizes that her relationship with Peter is threatened. Now she must choose whether to follow Margot’s advice: never go to college with a boyfriend or her heart. In this book, Lara Jean is her usual self: quirky, lovable and funny. Unfortunately, as amazing as Lara Jean is, this book was not the best. I thought that P.S. I Still Love You was the last book of the series, but to my surprise Jenny Han decided to write another book. In my opinion, there was no need to write this book which is why I felt that the plot was not developed enough.

Bittersweet it was. I picked it up because I had read the other two and wanted to know what happened next. Not as bright a star as the other two, but satisfying in knowing what happens to Lara Jean & the other crew.

I liked the book and ending! I thought Jenny Han did a good job sending Lara Jean off for college, and showing us the bonds between the sisters and friends.
Her book is relatable, funny, and can make you cry. I'd definitely recommend reading this book, it's a very nice ending to the series!

We’re all just counting down, passing time. Everyone knows where they’re going, and the right now already feels like it’s in the rearview. Suddenly life feels fast and slow at the same time. It’s like being in two places at once.
