Waiting on Wednesday: Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han

 "Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

Always and Forever, Lara Jean
(To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before #3)
Publication Date: May 2, 2017
Hardcover, 320 pages, Simon & Schuster
Genres: YA, Contemporary

Lara Jean’s letter-writing days aren’t over in this surprise follow-up to the New York Times bestselling To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You.

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?

My Thoughts

Many mixed feelings about this book. I did not like book two at all, but the first book was amazing! While in book two, Lara Jean ended up with the guy I wanted her to, there were just so many problems and slut-shaming in P.S. I Still Love You that it ruined To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before for me. Hopefully this book fixes the issues but doesn’t change who Lara Jean ends up with. I might die a little inside if she falls in love with someone else.

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  2. I've never heard of Jenny Han before. I hope book 3 is better for you than book 2 was. Sometimes authors have that second book slump but then they're able to slam-dunk the third.

    1. Never?! Huh. I didn't know that was possible. You should try her Summer trilogy.

  3. I can't wait to read this book! For me, I actually didn't really want a book three. But I'm excited about it! I preordered it and everything. If you preorder, make sure you claim the preorder goodies. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!
