Review: We’ll Always Have Summer (Summer #3)

Hello, hello!! I hope you’re all enjoying your day so far. ❤
Today I’m bringing you a review of the final installment of the Summer trilogy, We’ll Always Have Summer. This trilogy certainly pales in comparison to Jenny Han’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series, which I love, but this one was quick and kinda fun. Although I did have a number of issues with this series, it made for the PERFECT binge read, and it was entertaining, even when it frustrated the heck out of me.
I hope you enjoy!

Goodreads Synopsis:
It’s been two years since Conrad told Belly to go with Jeremiah. She and Jeremiah have been inseparable ever since, even attending the same college—only, their relationship hasn’t exactly been the happily ever after Belly had hoped it would be. And when Jeremiah makes the worst mistake a boy can make, Belly is forced to question what she thought was true love. Does she really have a future with Jeremiah? Has she ever gotten over Conrad? It’s time for Belly to decide, once and for all, who has her heart forever.

Review: It’s Not Summer Without You (Summer #2)

Good morning!! I hope you’re all having a magnificent day so far!
Today I’m returning with a review of the second installment of Jenny Han’s Summer series, It’s Not Summer Without You. 
Happy reading! ❤


It’s Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han
Genre: Young Adult – Contemporary, Romance
Series: Summer #2
Pages: 275
Publication Date: April 2010
My Rating: 2.5 of 5 stars
Read May 2021

Goodreads Synopsis:
Belly finds out what comes after falling in love in this follow-up to The Summer I Turned Pretty from the New York Times bestselling author of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (soon to be a major motion picture!), Jenny Han.
Can summer be truly summer without Cousins Beach?
It used to be that Belly counted the days until summer, until she was back at Cousins Beach with Conrad and Jeremiah. But not this year. Not after Susannah got sick again and Conrad stopped caring. Everything that was right and good has fallen apart, leaving Belly wishing summer would never come.
But when Jeremiah calls saying Conrad has disappeared, Belly knows what she must do to make things right again. And it can only happen back at the beach house, the three of them together, the way things used to be. If this summer really and truly is the last summer, it should end the way it started—at Cousins Beach.

Review: The Summer I Turned Pretty (Summer #1)

Hello, hello, my lovely readers, and happy first day of June!! I hope you’re all doing well! ❤ I cannot, and I repeat CAN NOT believe that it is already June. Where is this year going?! 
This morning, I am here with a review of The Summer I Turned Pretty, which as the title implies, is a summery story to fit with the beginning of the summery months! This book is one of the first that I added to my Goodreads TBR when I joined over six years ago, and I only just finally picked it up! I was a little disappointed by it, especially considering how much I adore Jenny Han’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy, but it was a cute and very summery story.
Happy reading!!


The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
Genre: Young Adult – Contemporary, Romance
Series: Summer #1
Pages: 276
Publication Date: May 2009
My Rating: 2.5 of 5 stars
Read May 2021

Goodreads Synopsis:
Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer—they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one terrible and wonderful summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.

Mood Board Monday: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before – Jenny Han

Over the summer, I made a whole bunch mood board for some books and songs that I like. I decided that I will begin sharing a some of my book mood boards here on my blog! I also created a Tumblr page for them all a few months ago.
You can find my tumblr Between the Lyrics and Pages here.
I will be starting off with my favourite so far, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. This is one of my favourite trilogies of all time; Lara Jean is very relatable, the story is super atmospheric, and it has a soft, comforting feel that I simply adore.

Quote Corner #29: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

Happy Tuesday!!! I hope you all had a lovely morning!
This evening I am sharing a handful of my favourite quotes from this delightful novel!
Happy reading!! ❤


When someone’s been gone a long time, at first you save up all the things you want to tell them. You try to keep track of everything in your head. But it’s like trying to hold on to a fistful of sand: all the little bits slip out of your hands, and then you’re just clutching air and grit. Because by the time you finally see each other, you’re catching up only on the big things, because it’s too much bother to tell about the little things. But the little things are what make up life.

It feels strange to have spent so much time wishing for something, for someone and then one day, suddenly, to just stop.

“You’d rather make up a fantasy version of somebody in your head than be with a real person.”


I read this book a few years ago, but I really enjoyed it! It was a very sweet and cute contemporary romance and I recently read the other two books in the trilogy, which were just as adorable.
I also really liked the Netflix movie adaptations of the books! They were such adorable teen rom-coms that I could happily watch over and over again!!
