I wish I would have picked up these book years ago when I was young enough to really enjoy it. It's not a horrible book. I just have difficulty with the immaturity of the characters. ( )

I am so glad that I started this series. I wasn't sure what I would think about it when I started the first book. But, I loved The Summer I Turned Pretty so much, that I ordered the second (It's Not Summer Without You) and third (We'll Always Have Summer) books before I even finished the first one. When I was finally able to settle down enough to read and finish this one, I whizzed through it quickly. I read the last 100 pages or so in one night.

This will probably one of my favorite series this year. And I am not a big contemporary (romance) fiction type of person. But the way Jenny Han writes, she makes it easy to get into the books and stay into them. For me personally though, the first couple of chapters get my attention, but a tad bit slow for me...Not a drag but just kind of meh....but once I get through the meh part, it breezes by kind of quickly. I am more willing to look into similar type of books on the contemporary romance genre. Hopefully that will help me branch out a little more in this genre. ( )

Like the first book, every chapter is a snippet of memories that weaves the whole story. Though in the first book, it was just Belly's perspective, while in here, Jeremiah & Conrad also partake in the story.

Here, I would describe Belly as a brat. She has mood swings, tantrums, and being childish. But I guess because she is still one. She is a young lady that copes on hard situation that is new to her. Like Conrad who is brooding, and keeping his problems, feelings and thoughts to himself. Jeremiah, however, is too jolly and kind. He is your mr. sunshine that is always there for you especially when you need him.

I know Conrad will be her partner but I like Jere. I feel bad for him. I think Jere is whom she needs & deserves, but Jere do not deserve her. On the other hand, I see Conrad as not showy of affection, that is why people misunderstand him--that is where Belly can somehow help him.

a little
I thought Laure will offer to buy the house. The story was too predictable and simple; it needed some spice when she just won by glares, words and cuss to their father (well for me).

I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first one. It was a lot harder to get through it. At least till it got to the halfway mark that's when it got really good. I really feel for these characters, I felt so sad for them. I really got attached to them in the first book and this one was just like that. I really felt sorry for all of them. There were so many up and downs all through out this book. I was a little disappointed in Conrad, I felt like he was being mean. And Belly was a bit more immature than usual at the beginning of the book. But after awhile it got really good and I couldn't put it down. It was a good book and I cant wait to read the last one. ( )
