Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han || Book Review

This is by far the most boring book of the series.

I only really finished the series because I’m trying to complete books series and it wasn’t overly a drain of brain cells to quit it at book two.

Plot from GoodReads:

Lara Jean is having the best senior year a girl could ever hope for. She is head over heels in love with her boyfriend, Peter; her dad’s finally getting remarried to their next door neighbor, Ms. Rothschild; and Margot’s coming home for the summer just in time for the wedding.

But change is looming on the horizon. And while Lara Jean is having fun and keeping busy helping plan her father’s wedding, she can’t ignore the big life decisions she has to make. Most pressingly, where she wants to go to college and what that means for her relationship with Peter. She watched her sister Margot go through these growing pains. Now Lara Jean’s the one who’ll be graduating high school and leaving for college and leaving her family—and possibly the boy she loves—behind.

When your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?


The book had absolutely nothing to offer plot-wise. I’m not actually sure what the point was of this book except Lara Jean trying to figure out the best cookie recipe. In fact, food received more attention than anything else.

There were no real conflict moments, something I’ve come to expect thanks to the previous two books and the only big moments from Lara Jean were her making smart decisions about her future.

If I didn’t like Margot before then I lost all my likes for her now. I don’t care how old you are, unless you’re paying for your own things in life and stuff, you will follow the rules that are applied in your parent’s home. The disrespect this character has… is beyond me. She boiled my blood really good. Really good, and so she remains my most despised character in the book series. Thank goodness Kitty reached some sense of maturity to make her more tolerable.

Wrapping up the series, it really irritated me to see how perfect their world was. For realistic fiction, it was too perfect, everything always falling into perfect place and no real world struggles to face at all.

What was suppose to be relatable in the book(s) apart from baking the best cookies and then struggling to find the perfect recipe for the most important batch?


This book had such a weak ending for the trilogy.

As far as the books go, this is a rare case where I actually PREFER the movies over the books. Definitely won’t read these books again.

My Rating:

The book has a rating of 4.04 on GoodReads. I gave it a 3.
