" 4 La vida está llena de Decisiones STARS

Well, to be fair, your mom never met Peter Kavinsky. She didn’t have all the facts. If she had met him . . .” Trina lets out a low whistle. “She might’ve been singing a different tune.”




Fue una sorpresa muy grata cuando leí el primer libro, creo que no esperaba tanto de ellos y me gustaron muchísimo, Jenny Han escribe de una manera tan amena que te va envolviendo poco a poco en la historia, en los personajes, en lo que va pasando en su vida diaria sin drama profundo, sólo con problemas “normales” de adolescente, la convivencia con la familia, la amistad y el primer amor.

Estos libros realzan lo fuerte que son los lazos familiares, una familia que te apoya y que te quiere incondicionalmente, y es que como latina y especialmente mexicana, la familia es el vínculo social más importante.

Mientras leía y veía la forma de actuar de Margot y yo decía OMG!! ¿Así seré como hermana mayor?


Tal vez si tenga un poquito de Margot y un poquito de soñadora de Lara Jean o tal vez también tenga algo de hater de Kitty y es que me identifiqué mucho con los personajes y su familia especialmente.

Me encantó lo orgullosas que se sentían las hermanas Song de su origen coreano, de sus comidas, vestimentas, hasta los productos de belleza, hace algunos ayeres no tantos era una adicta a los dramas coreanos entonces en este libro leía algo relacionado a las tradiciones y cosas de Corea y yo me emocionaba porque recordaba haberlo visto.

En cuanto al romance de Peter y Lara Jean hay que puedo decir de estos dos, que me encantan cuando están juntos derraman miel esa bien empalagosa pero los amas, son adorables y tiernos y yo sólo los quería ver juntos y felices, me sacaba los cursi y romántica y sólo veía corazones flotando por todos lados



Peter Kavinsky te has robado mi corazón y no lo quiero de vuelta es todo tuyo


A lo largo de los tres libros, yo me fui enamorando más de Peter, era un chico que no era perfecto cometía errores como todos los adolescentes, pero lo que lo hacía especial era su amor por Lara Jean, los detalles que tenía con ella, su manera fácil y relajada de actuar y sobre todo que era fácil de querer, parecía que no ponía atención a las cosas que le decía LJ pero cuando menos se lo imaginaba con un bonito detalle hacia ella te dabas cuenta que estaba en todo, como en el cumpleaños de ella creo que fue mi escena favorita.
En cuanto a Lara Jean creo maduro a lo largo de la trilogía pero sin perder su esencia, ella era feliz con las pequeñas cosas como hornear pasteles, viendo videos de peinados con Kitty o simplemente estar con su familia.

El drama de ellos se postergó hasta el final que yo moría de angustia no sabía si iba a tener solución ya faltaban poquititas páginas y todo seguía igual. El final fue exactamente como el libro anterior sin ninguna certeza, sólo espero que su amor triunfe y sea para siempre.

Peter will love Lara Jean with all his heart, always.


Y ahora que ya se acabó al menos pido un relato algo que me alegre el corazón y nos dé una dosis más de Peter Kavinsky que con tres libros no es suficiente.


PD: Todavía estoy en una nube llamada Peter Kavinsky, rodeada de angelitos tocando el arpa." said.

"Why does it feel like the end of something ?
I guess I feel this way because that's what this book is about. The end of an era.

#Saying Goodbye
This book is about Lara Jean realizing it's the end of her High School years, the end of something she's familiar with. And it's freaking scary. I understood how LJ felt. It hurt me to experience the end of your High School years all over again. Because, really, we love what we're familiar with, we love the security of High School... at least that's what I loved, and that's what LJ loved as well.
When you graduate High School, you say goodbye to baby you, goodbye to the life you knew because you're about to experience something new, something you've never tried before : College.
When LJ was waiting for her College reply I was scared for her, so scared, and when she didn't get into UVA, yes I cried. I cried because I knew how much she wanted this.
This deep sadness of saying goodbye .... LJ has every right to feel it.

#You go girl !
It's not a spoiler because it's in the synopsis, so .... when LJ decided to go to UCN, I was torn.
I was sad because it meant her and Peter being even more apart and I just want them to be happy, BUT....
LJ needs some me time. She needs to live on her own. She needs to live somewhere she knows no one. She needs to realize that even though life is scary, life is also exciting and her being on her own doesn't mean she only has to survive. She has to enjoy her life.
She's deeply attached to her family, but I think spending some time on her own is the best thing that could happen to her. She has to do what's best for her, and even though it breaks my heart that her and Peter won't be at the same College, I have faith in them.

#My bae Peter
Peter K was my very first book boyfriend. I remember when barely 18-year-old me fell head over heels in love with him back in 2014.
He will always have a special place in my heart.
And I was proud of him in this book.
I know a lot of people felt like he wasn't as good as in the second book. But that's not how I personally feel. You have to understand one thing : I was Peter in this story. Gosh everything he felt, I felt it. When he was hurt, I was hurt. The way he reacted made total sense to me : Peter is deeply insecure. He doesn't show it, but he is. He is SO afraid of LJ 'realizing' he's not worth her time that he hides everything he feels behind a wall of self-confidence.
He's just a boy. Barely a man. And he's scared. And jeez I'm crying, nice job.
He's been hurt so badly : by his dad, by his mom - this bitch - even by Lara Jean.... but he doesn't deserve this pain. But I think he needs to understand that both LJ and him deserves to be happy even if it means spending some time apart.

Saying goodbye to this trilogy really is difficult ... damn, we were in the first place to have this third book, I know it... I remember saying goodbye for the first time to what was then a duology in 2015... I was so sad. It may sound weird for a lot of people, but this trilogy has a special meaning to me, I will always defend it.
So I guess this is my final goodbye. But if Jenny Han wants to write a trilogy about Peter and LJ in College, I won't say no. Be sure of that.

4.5

At college, when people ask us how we met, how will we answer them? The short story is, we grew up together. But that's more Josh's and my story. High school sweethearts? That's Peter and Gen's story. So what's ours, then?
I suppose I'll say it all started with a love letter.

" 13/05/16:I'M FREAKING OUT. SO EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK!! " said.

" I'm so happy with the way things wrapped up in this book! My baby, Peter Kavinsky! All kinds of adorable-ness. I'm so glad a third book came out! Lara Jean really came into her own in this book. I so admire that she just sticks to her morals and values! Headstrong and fierce. The family aspect was as heartwarming as ever! I was gushing throughout! It's definitely my favourite book in the trilogy and the ending was just so satisfying. Oh, Lara Jean. " said.

" Very cute. Sometimes Lara Jean's controlling tendencies really stressed me out while reading, but I enjoyed this much more than book 2 and it seemed like a realistic teenage relationship. This was a satisfying conclusion to the series, but the book was building up to a couple of big events that we never got to see happen and I kind of wish it had been just a little longer, or other scenes cut out to fit those in, or even that we had an extra epilogue! " said.

" Um. NO. Unless there's more John and no less Peter. In that particular case YES, PLEASE. " said.

"WHY DO I KEEP HATING EVERY BOOK I READ

This is actually like the 5th book in a row I've read and not cared for!? And it sucks cause I was kinda looking forward to this one? SOMEONE SEND HELP.

It's just that after finishing this, I can't help but think: why this book was necessary? I really didn't care for anything that happened and I kept hoping for something... more. Especially with the ending, cause I was expecting an epilogue that showed Peter and Lara Jean married with kids and still super in love and perfect. *sigh*

description

“Peter will love Lara Jean with all his heart, always”

Overall I thought this was a cute series that was always light & even though LJ was pretty childish, I found her oddly lovable. Really wished I liked this book more, but still glad I read it. (Also go LJ for making choices for herself and not others, proud of you girl!)
" said.

"When I read the first two books everyone always said "wow the main character is so immature and annoying to read about" and I never thought much of it. Two year later I am a completely different human than the one who had read the first two and… wow. It was pretty hard to take the main character seriously. I found myself rolling my eyes and even laughing at some of the things she said and did (not in a good way). This book wasn't my favorite and I'll be real and say I skimmed the last half of it (it's weird how I just made a video about skim reading)." said.
