Anika Lal - Est un livre sur l'amour. Ce livre se passe en été. Le personnage principal est gentil et heureux, mais elle a de nombreux conflits avec ses amis. ( )

Readable but ultimately disappointing due to a chicken-shit ending and lack of character development. ( )

4.5 stars.
Loved this one! The characters are great and the beach setting is the best. I felt like I was in Cousins with them and overall this book is definitely one I'll reread in Summer. :)

Jenny Han, stole my heart last year when I discovered, To All The Boys, when I finally picked up this trilogy I was nothing but excited. I really like a good coming of age story, they're my guilty pleasure genre. I expect messy, young characters who make mistakes and say the wrong thing. Boy, did this book deliver. This book delivered all the cliches, wishing you're cool (kind of) aunt was your mom, the summer vacation feel every kid relishes in, unattainable first crushes, and all that comes with growing up. I found this book reminding me of my youth a couple of times and I welcomed the nostalgia.

I found myself drawn to everyone in this book, almost equally. It was weird. It's rare that I become just as invested in secondary characters as I am with the main characters. The characters, setting, and overall arch of book 1 in this trilogy was fleshed out very well. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't tackle any deep or serious issues, it is fairly surface level. Nothing life changing, but enjoyable none the less.

I wish this was the one and only book in this trilogy. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. There I said it, please don't hate me but things just started falling apart after that. I had high hopes considering the reverence I had placed in Jenny Han after reading TATBILB.

Was I disappointed? No, not necessarily. Was I expecting more? Yes, absolutely.

Both times I’ve read this book I’ve questioned that anyone would tolerate the nickname Belly let alone introduce herself by it, I mean Belly isn’t shy about voicing her displeasure throughout the book yet she doesn’t protest her ridiculous nickname, that’s kind of tough to believe.

I have no issue with a focus on romance, however, I do think there was room to let us in on Belly’s aspirations beyond Conrad whether that’s swimming or academics, it would have been good to know she had goals that don’t include a boy.

Also while I get that it reflects the title to have every boy drawn to Belly’s newfound prettiness, I really would have liked some examples of other things about Belly that appeal to these boys aside from her looks, especially since Belly’s most prominent personality trait on display here is her tendency towards hissy fits which I think most of us can agree isn’t exactly attractive.

Those complaints aside though, this was just as addictive the second time around.

Belly is self-absorbed and whiny, Conrad is a moody jerk, they’re both immature, as is Jeremiah, and yeah, they’re super irritating at times but I’m good with that, I’d rather read about characters who are flawed and sometimes aren’t all that easy to like since actual humans are flawed and sometimes aren’t all that easy to like.

As far as the romance, yeah, in real world terms Belly’s obsession with hot and cold Conrad wouldn’t be healthy, she should probably run in the other direction and never look back but this is fiction and in fiction I’m willing to let the toxicity concerns go and watch the sparks fly. For me the relationship with Jeremiah has more of a friendship vibe and the relationship with Cam doesn’t really factor, but I’m sure other readers will feel differently, that’s totally a personal preference thing.

The romantic melodrama, the emotion in a situation with one of the moms, a strong sense of place with the beach house and the nostalgia of flashbacks to their growing childhood bonds, all of those things combined into the definition of a page turner. ( )
