P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han {Book Review}

I’ve watched all the movie adaptations from the book series and I found them to be cute. Just cute.

So of course, because I enjoyed movies and I didn’t roll my eyes during every scene, I thought I’d give the books a try.

Originally published: 2015

Pages: 352
Format: E-book

Plot from GoodReads:

Lara Jean didn’t expect to really fall for Peter.

She and Peter were just pretending. Except suddenly they weren’t. Now Lara Jean is more confused than ever.

When another boy from her past returns to her life, Lara Jean’s feelings for him return too. Can a girl be in love with two boys at once?

Thoughts:

The book started off pretty strong and then slowly pushed me into the boredom zone.

The pace was slow and cozy with nothing interesting happening for pages on end.

There’s a sense of feminism portrayed in the book but Lara Jean leaves some contradictions here and there to counter it with her actions and thoughts.

The only real exciting aspect in the book was the Gen drama and slightly not-love triangle situation that kept playing out. While I understand Peter’s reservations to not disclose information to Lara Jean about Gen’s situation, he could have at least tried to explain something which would have helped avoided their own drama in their relationship.

As much as Peter’s actions got on my nerves (you can still be honest without disclosing everything!), Lara Jean’s love triangle with Peter and John Ambrose (to be read in a posh accent), didn’t make her any better than Peter. In fact, unlike her, Peter wasn’t insta-loving all over the place. How the mighty fall.

The book contained less of Margo, which was a relief, and Kitty is still her true self – rude and sarcastic with no consequences. We’ll just pretend it didn’t happen and move on, I guess.

After pages and pages of nothing happening, then snippets of drama and then a rushed ending, it’s hard to find a good balance in the book.

Overview:

Without the Gevenive, Peter and Lara Jean non-love drama triangle ‘thing‘, the book wouldn’t have had much going for it.

My Rating:

The book has a rating of 4.05 on GoodReads. I gave it a 3.
