P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Wow, this is not a good wow. I cannot express how much I did not like this book and how much this series has fallen in my mind. I did not like Peter very much in the first book, but I could understand why Lara Jean chose him and all; that and I could go along with it. But flash forward to book two and now Peter is manipulating her to get baked goods, and make her come to his games. Worse than that, he is still hanging out with Genevieve, something I could understand if it was just a friendly relationship but it most certainly is not. Lara Jean even sees it, commenting about how Gen is Peter’s #1 coming before his own girlfriend. Then, here comes this adorable, smart guy, who Lara Jean actually seems to have a connection with. They like the same things and actually have chemistry, and in my opinion they are perfect for each other. But even after Lara breaks up with Peter (something I was very happy about) Peter is still mad about her hanging out with John (a.k.a. the guys she has chemistry with). Peter is the biggest hypocrite fictional character I have ever read. I really didn’t like him in this book which is why I was so happy with how things were going with John Ambrose. I was actually elated when it seemed like they were going to get together and I actually predicted (a few chapters early) that John was going to be Stormy’s great-grandson. Side tangent: I understand that old people can be racist but Jenny Han took Stormy’s racism one step too far. The character came off as someone you didn’t want to hang out with and was generally unlikable. I can understand if Stormy just had some secret feud with Alicia, but using racism as a tool to set them at odds was lazy writing in my opinion. It is also agism, not all old people are racist, but Jenny Han seemed to imply that in the writing. Who knows? I might be completely wrong, but I doubt it. Back to how terrible Peter is, I was horrified at the end that Lara Jean decided to stay with him. I also wouldn’t have given him back the locket when they had broken up. I feel that once a gift is given it belongs to the receiver and the gifted has no hold on it anymore. Overall I’ve fallen out of love with this series and only for the sake of completion will I read the last book…
