Always & Forever Lara Jean By Jenny Han Book Review!

Published February 22, 2018 by Shay Taree

I have finally finished the Lara Jean series written by Jenny Han and I completely loved it. Always & Forever Lara Jean is the finally book in this series installment and it definitely didn’t disappoint.

Always & Forever starts off during the later half of Lara Jean’s senior year of high school with her relationship with Peter. It takes you through the ups and downs of her senior year including on where her relationship with Peter will stand once they go off to college in the fall.

I definitely enjoyed reading this book and couldn’t put it down. It definitely made me think of my own senior year experience especially when it came to my friends going away to college. That definitely almost caused me to shed a few tears.

I think this was the book that we definitely saw Lara Jean grow up and do things for herself. You saw her make decisions that she didn’t know that she would have to make but you saw her make them of her own free will and what would be best for her. While she did think of the relationships with her family and friends she also thought about what would help her in the long run.

This was definitely an enjoyable read and I’m so happy with the ending of this series. So I definitely recommend reading this series if you haven’t already.

Also comment down below on your thoughts on this series if you’ve already read it or let me know if you plan to read this series.

Solving For Ex Book Review!

Published February 2, 2018 by Shay Taree

I have finished another book so that means another book review! The book I just finished was Solving For Ex By Leigh Ann Kopans. I bought this book via the iBooks store at a pretty cheap price.

Solving for ex is about a girl named Ashley who is in love with her best friend Brendan. She thinks the year is going to be just the same with her and Brendan both being on the mathletes team and just spending time together like they usually do. But then two new kids start at their school a boy named Vincent and a girl named Sofia start at the school it turns her world upside down.

After the drama she experience at her old school it feels like history is repeating itself and Ashley doesn’t know what to do. From there the drama ensues.

This book is kind of your typical young adult romantic novel with drama and of course romance. At the beginning of novel

I wasn’t all that into it but once the characters Vincent and Sofia were introduced I couldn’t help but be hooked. When these characters were first introduced I couldn’t help but feel that something was up about them and I was right.

I also couldn’t help but put myself into Ashley’s shoes since I’m sure we have all been there when it comes to liking someone and feeling like another person is taking over our territory.

While I did enjoy this book there was just some things that I wanted a little more of. Like I wanted to know more about what was going to be the end result with a few of the characters. I also felt like the romance that happened with some the characters happened too fast.

But overall this book was an enjoyable read and at certain parts I couldn’t put it down. So if your interested in reading it definitely check out this book!

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before Book Review!!!

Published September 29, 2017 by Shay Taree

So I’ve finally finished another books and it’s a book I’ve heard a lot of good things about. The book is To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han and it was definitely a good book. 

The book is about a girl by the name of Lara Jean who is in high School and a hat box that contained all the love letters that she has written about all the boys she’s loved gets mailed out. 

This then causes all sorts of havoc in Lara Jeans life but some of it for the better. This was a great book to read that definitely had me wondering what was going to happen next. It also had tons of sweet moments that made you happy for Lara Jean.

One my favorite things that I loved as well was being able to see Lara Jean in many ways grow as a character. The book also had some relateable moments as well. 

I definitely recommend checking this book out if you haven’t already and there are actually 3 books in total and I’m currently reading the 2nd one. So let me know what you thoughts of this review and if you’ve read the book let me know what you thought of it!
