We'll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han

We'll Always Have Summer
                                         by Jenny Han

  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.

So, When I first saw the title, I freaked! I went crazy. I was like "Oh my god. This is going to be one of these endings where they think they're so cool and make all the characters have miserable endings. Fuck open endings!" Yeah.. I wasn't doing so well when I finished the second book. You'd think I'd take a goddamn breather before selling my soul to Jenny Han, but no, I had to continue eating. I was starving, I felt like a twelve year old kid that wasn't allowed play Call of Duty. I was never sure how this series would end, which scared me. I had all these theories but I wasn't sure if she would go with one of them but I’m very happy to report that I did like the way things were brought to a close. End 

As It started, I was happy to discover that Belly, Jeremiah and Conrad are now all in college. I didn't think we'd be that far into the future, but I was glad. I wanted some time to pass so everybody can get their shit together. Conrad certainly got his. He was my favorite character in this book. Once you see it from his prospective you start to understand him, get to know him a little better. He's matured and gown so much(aka, he's gotten sexy smexy). You can clearly see the hurt and bitterness he's been going through all along. Jeremiah really blew it, didn't he? He. Blew. It. I hate to rub it in his face like that, cos I always liked him. I hate that he was kinda portrayed as the bad guy in this book. I felt that he was wronged and wasn't given much of a conclusion. He really did love Belly and regretted what he did(CHEATER!). Belly, has really grown in my eyes. She's more in control, she knows what she wants...kind of.

Book two ends with Conrad telling Belly to go with Jeremiah. Now, being Berad/Conlly shipper, I didn't even get mad. I felt like the book going on the right track. I wasn't too surprised to see them happy together. I thought it was really sweet and honest. I really do believe that Belly loved Jeremiah, she was torn and broken by him, and she just loved Conrad more. And I feel like, the only reason Jeremiah proposed, was because he was afraid she would run to his brother more than anything.

Now, this when shit hits the fan. Our dear lovely Jeremiah does the unmentionable(CHEATER!). When it’s first mentioned, I had to stop and read the passage again just to be sure. It was soooo out of character(the guy worships at her feet). Belly's reaction just kills me. The girl can't seem to get a break! And she's in for a hell of turn of events.

At the end, Belly is forced to make a decision between the two boys(the moment of truuuth, is near us)– will it be Jeremiah or will it be Conrad? And, I was again... FREAKING OUT! I wanted to get to some goooood parts(The fucking scene when she hits her head + The fucking beach scene!) I kept reading so fast my eyes are still twitching. But as I was reaching the end, I didn't wanna turn the pages anymore. I didn't wanna live with the fact that the trilogy was almost over. No more cute jealous Conrad. No more fun-loving Jeremiah. No more beautiful Susannah and cool Laurel. No more big brother Steven. No more Belly!!

"Jenny Han masterfully crafted her Summer series in a way that stole my heart, and the hearts of many other readers. The books are carried on the shoulders of real characters that you wish you could know in real life, a beach house that marks the summers (and that you wish you could visit) and a story that threatens to have you smiling like crazy and crying like a baby. Jenny Han’s Summer series is one of my favorite contemporary YA series, and I’m so glad that I was finally able to read We’ll Always Have Summer and find out what happens to Belly, Conrad and Jeremiah." - Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books
