– Jenny Han, We’ll Always Have Summer
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.[Goodreads]

This was definitely an interesting conclusion the The Summer Trilogy. Although I was happy with the way that it ended, the beginning of the book caught me completely off guard. When I started We’ll Always Have Summer, I almost put it down and refused to continue. I am always for the cute and romantic fluffy stuff, but I can’t stand reading a book when the main character is being a complete idiot. (Or at least according to me being stupid and needing to grow up).
Belly, throughout the whole series has been annoying and really turned me off from the books. The books saving grace has been the boys, mainly Conrad. And again that was the case for this book. I have been team Conrad from the beginning. I could not believe the events that took place at the beginning of the book. I completely agreed with all of the other characters reactions to the news. In the end everything was set right and ended the way I wanted it to end!
Jenny Han is extremely good at writing fluffy, drama filled stories. The book was such a fast read and even though I was mad with what was happening I still could not put the book down. If it wasn’t evident already she also has some very swoon worthy guys. I feel even more in love with Stephen in this one and was head over heels with Conrad! Han also writes some realistic and very good friendships, no friendship is perfect and this shows through all of the books in this series!
Overall this book was a nice conclusion and the series was a solid, fluffy, easy summer read filled with drama, teen angst, friendship, family love and beautiful boys!
Overall Series Rating: 4/5
