We’ll Always Have A Summer by Jenny Han
Synopsis: Belly has only ever been in love with two boys, both with the last name Fisher. And after being with Jeremiah for the last two years, she’s almost positive he is her soul mate. Almost. Conrad has not gotten over the mistake he made when he let Belly go even as Jeremiah has always known that Belly is the girl for him. So when Belly and Jeremiah decide to make things forever, Conrad realizes that it’s now or never–tell Belly he loves her, or lose her for good. Belly will have to confront her feelings for Jeremiah and Conrad and face a truth she has possibly always known: she will have to break one of their hearts.

Series: The Summer I Turned Pretty (#3)
It’s been a few days ever since I read this book, and the more I really process about the book, the more I feel like it disappointed me. I felt like it was something else entirely, and it wasn’t the beloved first two books I remembered.
This book is the final out of this trilogy, and while it wasn’t the best trilogy, I did like some of the things that were in this trilogy as a whole. I liked the first 2 books, the second I really loved because the love triangle isn’t really noticeable, and it was focusing on the character’s relationships while keeping the fluffy feel to it. This book, however, kinda destroyed those feelings I had.
I really thought that the characters felt really OOC and not their selves. Belly’s immatureness which I really liked it was missing sadly. I get that she grew up, but this book was taking only a year later. She no longer felt like the Belly I was used to, who wants to have Conrad’s heart and how she was determined even though he didn’t really have any feelings towards her.
I hated how Han destroyed Jermiah out of bias to Conrad. Jermiah was such a charismatic person that was quite perfect for Belly instead of how much Conrad had been an asshole towards Belly. In this book, it really felt like it changed it from Jermiah being charismatic to a douche-bag in only a book. The obvious bias was there and in unnerved me to no end.
The only few things that I rated it 2.5 stars was that it wrapped up quite nicely and no loose plot-holes. And I’m actually really quite happy with that ending though, it left off on a note of bittersweet and happiness for me.
Overall, I did this trilogy was okay and this book kinda ruined it for me, but the first two books are a lot better than this one.
