Lara Jean is having the best senior year.

And there’s still so much to look forward to: a class trip to New York City, prom with her boyfriend Peter, Beach Week after graduation, and her dad’s wedding to Ms. Rothschild. Then she’ll be off to college with Peter, at a school close enough for her to come home and bake chocolate chip cookies on the weekends.

Life couldn’t be more perfect!

At least, that’s what Lara Jean thinks . . . until she gets some unexpected news.

Now the girl who dreads change must rethink all her plans—but when your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to? - via GoodReads

4 Stars

I was so excited to finish the final installment of the Lara Jean series. I had read both To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You in a pretty brief amount of time. I think I had pretty high expectations going into Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han.

We have the same cast of characters but now most of them are trying to find resolution. I really find that Lara Jean resonates with me. We’re both old souls who love to bake and want to hold on to our memories; almost to the point of being afraid to make new ones. I was really happy that Lara Jean was able to find a path that worked for her and didn’t require sacrificing the most important things to her.

Always and Forever, Lara Jean got knocked down a whole star because the plot seemed to move so slowly. The previous two books absolutely flew by but this addition to the series seemed to drag for me. I think I was in week two of reading when I finally sat myself down and just read the last half of the book. Some of this may have to do with the timing of when I started reading this book and may not be the book’s fault.

While the pacing of Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han was a bit off for me I found it to be a very satisfying conclusion to this trilogy.
