Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han
Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky's love story has come to an end. I finally finished the third book of the series! The third book was amazing and I think my favorite out of the Jenny Han, To All The Boys I've Loved Before series.
The third book was all about Lara Jean, Peter and college. Lara Jean is living the perfect life, having the best senior year a girl could have. But, she has some big decisions to make.
One big decision that Lara Jean had to make was the college she wanted to attend in the fall. She planned to go to UVA with her boyfriend Peter. However, when she didn't get in, she needed to apply to another universities...fast. So, Lara Jean applied to College of William & Mary, along with University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC).
In the beginning of the book, you see Lara Jean become obsessed with going to UVA because it was her dream school and Peter was going to be there. Everything revolved around Peter. She was set to attend William & Mary for a year and then transfer to UVA, where Peter was accepted on a full lacrosse scholarship.
Plans changed when Lara Jean found out that she has been removed from the wait list at UNC and got in, when her best friend, Chris, surprises Lara Jean with a road trip to visit UNC.
I love that we got to see more of their friendship in the third book because I think it's unique. Unique in the sense that you'd never expect these two girls to be best friends. Anyway, Lara Jean decides that she really wants to go to college at UNC. But, she is struggling to find a way to tell Peter.
College and Peter are not the only things Lara Jean is focusing on in this final book. She is also planning her father's wedding to their (used to be) neighbor, Trina.
There is no surprise ending, but I'll say the ending caught me off guard because I wasn't expecting it. The third book really wraps up the series and ends the love story of Peter Kavinsky and Lara Jean perfectly.
You guys have to read this Jenny Han series! & then watch the movie. This is my second favorite book series. The first, if you must know, is the Fifty Shades Trilogy. Duh.
I've started a new series and I can't wait to tell you guys about it!! So far, it's AMAZING. I am dying to watch the movie. Any guesses? I'll give you a hint - it involves another love story.
