P.S. I Still Love You


P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han

Genre: Contemporary, Romance

Age: YA

POV: 1st person

Format: Audio

Summary: Lara Jean didn’t expect to really fall for Peter.
They were just pretending. Until they weren’t. And now Lara Jean has to learn what it's like to be in a real relationship and not just a make-believe one. But when another boy from her past returns to her life, Lara Jean’s feelings for him suddenly return too. Can a girl be in love with two boys at once?

Review: The difference between the first book to the second book is there more cussing and more talk about sex in a curious way. This buffs me when people are intimidated by adult books when they read YA books like this. Then what intimidating about adult books?

What difference between the second book and this book is that they’re a lot of Laura Jean looking back on her childhood and the friends she used to have. It's quite sad seeing how things change in a matter of years.

In the first book, I know that Peter and Laura Jean were into each other and so I'm right that they will end up in a relationship. They did break up due to Laura Jean being a jark. How could she not see that Jezebel is going through something? Just because Jezebel acts like a bitch towards you, doesn't mean you have to be a bitch right back.

I read Page Unbound's post on "Shared Characteristics in YA novels" and one of her points she made is that YA books have clearly stated morals. What bad is stated bad.

Not all YA books do this. I have a hunch that it's more newer YA books that do this. The reason I mention this is that P.S. I Still Loved You comes out as preachy at times and also a bit of a double standard. Other than that, I still like this book. It takes a lot more for me to rail against a book.
