Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book was a substantial improvement over the last book in the series, by far. Although it wasn’t as good as the first book; it was interesting; although it took me a while to figure out that there had been a time gap between the two. I really like the original book but overall I don’t think I’ll ever be re-reading this series. After the first one, Lara Jean seemed to lose a lot of who she was as a quirky, pastel loving person. Personally I blame Peter, but I didn’t like him from day one so… Anyway, I really liked how adorable Kitty was in this novel, but I didn’t like Mrs. Rothschild. I think she was definitely taking Lara Jean’s mom place and I’m totally on Margo’s side that everything was moving too fast between her and their dad. I’m really sad John Ambrose just disappeared in this novel, but I also don’t like the choice Lara Jean made to keep Peter though college. I personally agree with Margo about not having a boyfriend freshman year. Overall, I wasn’t as impressed as I was with the first book in the series. Although this one was better than the last, I am definitely relating a lot more with Margo than the main character. Still it was a nice easy read!
