I loved Jenny Han’s P.S. I Still Love You, although not as much as its predecessor. PSISLY is chock-full of the things I loved about To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (the first in the duology) ; romance, relatable and laughable moments, and times when you just want to cry an ocean. P.S. I Still Love You is definitely one of those books perfect for curling up with on the couch during a rainy day.
Note: Spoilers for To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before below!
It starts off right where To All the Boys ends, with Lara Jean finishing up writing a letter to Peter K. about how she screwed up at the Christmas party. However, her sisters, Margot and Kitty, convince her that instead of mailing the letter to Peter she should deliver it to him face to face. One thing I enjoyed about the book starting off so soon after the first book ended was how Lara Jean recounted the events multiple times in her head, just to clear up your memory if, in case, you have forgotten some of the major details. Luckily, Peter and Lara Jean make up sharing a totally swoon-worthy moment. But things aren’t quite over for the couple (after all, it’s just the beginning of the book). Lara Jean’s never been in a real relationship, much less one with Peter Kavinsky.
One weak aspect of PSISLY was the whole epilogue-ness about it. The story wasn’t particularly character or plot driven; it was more about what happens next for our favorite characters (I’m looking at you, Kitty Covey). That isn’t necessarily bad, it just means you really must care about the characters to enjoy the book.
In conclusion, if a rainy day happens upon you anytime in the near future, or part of your summer travel means hanging out in airports or on planes, pick up P.S I Still Love You. You won’t regret it.
