I loved the second book of this book series. It was a very good book to read and it mixed the plot and humor very well. The main character, Lara Jean, was very relatable and was a breath of fresh air within the dystopian dominated YA book-world. The characters in this book are also very well rounded and the plot moves on at a very steady pace. It was very nice to see the sisterly bond between Margot, Lara Jean, and Kitty and I loved the friendly banter between Kitty and Peter. I would highly recommend this book for anyone who wants a relaxed, funny, and warm read.

I loved the first instalment of this cute trilogy, and I enjoyed this one too. In classic Y/A novel style, there’s a love triangle. To be honest, there were times when I just wanted to scream at Lara Jean. Team Peter all the way! Lara Jean is still a relatable protagonist, though. My favourite part was definitely any page that Stormy was in! She was such a fun, spirited old lady who always made me laugh. She was a breath of fresh air throughout all the drama. I perceived the story’s message to be about honesty. It’s important to be honest and not keep secrets or lie to those you care about. A lot of problems could have been solved with this logic, but I guess that’s just part of the journey. I would recommend this book to other young adults, but I would also recommend reading the first instalment first! I would give this book 4/5 stars. - @ThePageDweller of the Hamilton Public Library's Teen Review Board

This second series (part 2) of to all the boys I've loved before is personally not as good as the first one in my opinion. In this book, Laura Jean starts to fall in love with her past lover Peter Kavinsky who she had “fake” interested in the first book. She then stumbles upon a new love interest, John Ambrose who was her crush in the past. It portrays the story off a forbidden love with a friend and a “fake” lover who she now is truly in love with. I would recommend this book to ages 13 and up because it shows a typical teen romance/ drama. I rate this book a 4/5 stars because I liked part one better than part two but I’m most likely going to read all three of them!

This is the second book in the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy, which takes place after the events of Lara Jean discovering that the picture of her and Peter at the ski trip had gone viral, leading to an argument and breakup. However, at the beginning of the novel, Lara Jean and Peter reconcile through a letter during a New Year’s Day celebration. The tension rises as another love interest for Lara Jean enters the picture, John Ambrose McClaren, who is another one of the five recipients of her love letters. Lara Jean spends her time volunteering in a nursing home, where she becomes close with Stormy, who happens to be John’s grandmother. As Lara Jean tries to navigate this new situation, there are breakups and misunderstandings, in which she learns things about others that she had not realized before, changing her perspective on them.

This books is widely lauded as the best out of the three, and I have to agree. It is not as lighthearted and innocent as the first novel, but also not as mature as the third. It is the perfect balance between the start of a relationship and the uncertainty that comes with it, reflecting the uncertainty of Lara Jean’s teenage years. Although this novel primarily focuses on the love triangle between Lara Jean, Peter, and John, Lara Jean and Peter’s relationship really shines in this novel. It is evidence that relationships are not always easy, and you need to fight for what you have as opposed to giving up when things get difficult. The plot was always engaging, and it never felt like the novel was simply bringing up things to fill the pages.

I recommend this novel for those who enjoy YA novels, as this fits the bill perfectly. It can come across as a bit frivolous for those who do not like the drama of high schoolers, as much of it is made to be blown out of proportion. However, I did find this to be a fun read.

I loved the first book in this trilogy so much so going into this one, I had expectations. I was nervous to see what happened between John Ambrose McClaren and Lara Jean, especially because I found myself being Team Peter all the way. I think that this book, actually just the series as a whole is one that is just so sweet and pure and I think it's a new take on a love story. I feel like young adult and fiction is so saturated with love stories that it's hard to find good ones, ones that feel real and make your heart stop, the kind of romance stories that would make a good movie, ya know? I really think this series is out of the box and I like the diversity that it brings not only to YA but to the entire romance genre in general.

It's clear that this book is a stepping stone between the first and the third. It's not as fast-paced as the first book and the details that end up mattering aren't always the biggest ones. It's definitely a bridge that I hope will bring the first and the third together in a way that rounds out the story and I'm excited to see what happens in the conclusion of the series.

I love Lara Jean as a character and her innocence. I know that I'm not that far out from being 16, going on 17, but it's easy to get caught up in the facets of adult life and having to take care of everything all the time and be serious and have a lot of responsibilities. What I like the most about this series is how it transports you and next thing you know, you're 16, going on 17, and you're falling in love with Peter Kavinsky alongside Lara Jean Song Covey.

I didn't like this book as much I did the first. I feel like towards the end of the book, it didn't intrigue me as much as it had before. I'm still going to be reading the third though!

Peter Or John Ambrose?

I still don't get the hype around this series. It felt like not much happened in this book, and Lara Jean just feels so young for the age she's supposed to be. Will I read the third book? Yes, just because I need to know how the trilogy ends. Hopefully something more exciting happens in the next book.

Don't let the rating fool you, I enjoyed this book, a lot. I'm hooked on Peter and Lara Jean, the fact is though getting into this book was a bit of a drudgery... And! I'm happy with the ending, meaning, I can most definitely end the series here and be no worse for wear. Will I read book 3? I'm not sure. That'll depend on my girl Jen.

This is an awesome sequel! I enjoyed the dynamic between Peter and Lara Jean. It is also good to see some of the growth Lara Jean goes through.

“I say, “In the contract we said we wouldn’t break each other’s hearts. What if we do it again?” Fiercely he says, “What if we do? If we’re so guarded, it’s not going to be anything. Let’s do it fucking for real, Lara Jean. Let’s go all in. No more contract. No more safety net. You can break my heart. Do whatever you want with it.”
