As soon as I finished the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before audiobook, I had to get this sequel from the library. After the cliffhanger ending in the first book, I had to know what happened next in Lara Jean’s story. And Jenny Han did not disappoint. I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars.

 

Book two picks up where book one left off. Lara Jean is such a great main character, and Kitty was super adorable once again. I pretty much devoured this book in two days after getting home from work. It was so good that I didn’t want to put it down. Sure there were a few flaws, like Lara Jean’s naivety at times and the overall predictable plot, but the swoony romance among other things made up for it.

 

Lara Jean is a boy magnet kind of, what with Peter and the “boy from her past”. Honestly, I don’t think she could go wrong with either one. They both have good and bad qualities. But I still love Peter, even though he has some douchebag moments. He made me swoon in the first book, and he made me swoon some in this second book. I think this book was less focused on romance than the first book, or maybe it’s just because the romantic parts were split between boys that I felt that way. Hmm. Something for deeper thought. But the romance that’s there is super cute.

 

A couple of my favorite lines: “Things feel like they’ll be forever, but they aren’t. Love can go away, or people can, without even meaning to. Nothing is guaranteed.” and “Why did God give me a mouth if I’m just going to say dumb stuff with it?”

 

Final note: An adorable end to this duology. I can’t wait to re-read these books for years to come, both in print and via audiobooks. I’m positive you’ll get a kick out of Lara Jean (and Kitty), so read these books if you haven’t already!
