Lara Jean is back and she’s as adorable as ever!
While I wasn’t as completely sucked in and charmed by P.S. I Still Love You as I was by To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. (Y’all know how I feel about middle chapters.) I was still so happy to hang out in this world again. And frankly, Lara Jean and Peter trying to navigate an actual relationship is pretty cute. Not as cute as their attempt to not fall in love while pretending to be together, but still cute.
Of course there are oodles of complications. There’s the fact that someone took a video of them making out on the ski trip and then posts it online as a sex tape. (It turns out to be Genevieve, Peter’s evil mean girl ex) and one of the other letter recipients comes back into the picture. (John Ambrose McClaren. The Eponine/Brooke Davis Curse strikes again! He’s ADORABLE) (Lara Jean even references the Eponine thing, because of course she does.)
There’s a lot of angst, a lot of Kitty saying the angst is stupid, a lot of Lara Jean second guessing herself, a lot of Peter being kind of a jerk about stuff, and a killer game of Assassin. (Not actually killer…but you know.) Plus we learn why Gen’s being such a tremendous tool. (Her dad is cheating on her mom with a college student! GROSS!)
Up next is When Life Gives You Lululemons by Lauren Weisberger. This is really Weisberger’s last shot with me. I haven’t liked any of her books since Everyone Worth Knowing, and this is the second sequel to The Devil Wears Prada. The first sequel Revenge Wears Prada is truly worth forgetting. Did you think Andy was annoying the first time? Just you wait! She’s even worse in her 30’s! But this one centers on Emily, who frankly should have been the main character from the beginning.
