My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐.5
P.S I Still Love You is the sequel to the much beloved To All The Boys I Loved Before, a story where sweet Lara Jean and popular Peter Kavinsky fake date after Lara Jean’s love letters are mailed to all her previous crushes.
In this sequel their relationship is no longer fake. They’re in it for realises this time and with this comes the good and the bad.
First thing first: I love Kitty. She steals the show in every scene that she’s in with her large personality and witty one liners. @ Jenny Han, can we get a book all about her please? Infact I love the entire dynamic between Lara Jean and her family.
Second thing second: I’m so glad this series got turned into a trilogy because no way does this book work as the finale to a duology. If I’d read this book before the announcement of book 3 I would have been sourly underwhelmed and disappointed by the conclusion not just to the story but to Lara Jean and Peters romance.
Throughout the majority of this novel we follow Lara Jean as she navigates this new relationship with Peter and I felt this was very authentic. I’m no expert on relationships but the obstacles and hurdles between the two of them felt very real, there was no unnecessary drama (although a lot could have been fixed earlier if they had talked!). I appreciated how Lara Jeans sweet and innocent and unexperienced personality didn’t change and how this was, at times, a cause of conflict.
Lara Jean also has to deal with a video of her and Peters hot tub make out session being circulated over the internet and as is always the case she is subject to the internet trolls and whispers of classmates.
As much as I enjoyed reading about the troubles of Lara Jean and Peters romance, in which they both have flaws and things to work on, and also the hot tub video aspect, it was nothing amazing.
Going into this I thought John Ambrose was going to play a much bigger part in this story but he didn’t even show up till halfway through the story, even in pen pal form, and it seemed his only relevance to the story was to get rejected. I feel kinda bad for him.
Overall I thought this book was ok. Nothing amazing. I do think it works much better as the middle book rather then the concluding novel and I will definitely be getting to the third book at some point.
