Lara Jean is having the best senior year. And there’s still so much to look forward to: a class trip to New York City, prom with her boyfriend Peter, Beach Week after graduation, and her dad’s wedding to Ms. Rothschild. Then she’ll be off to college with Peter, at a school close enough for her to come home and bake chocolate chip cookies on the weekends.

Life couldn’t be more perfect!

At least, that’s what Lara Jean thinks…until she gets some unexpected news.

Now the girl who dreads change must rethink all her plans—but when your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to? (Goodreads)

My Thoughts...

One of my most anticipated reads for 2017 was Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han. I purchased the book as soon as it was released in May, but unfortunately had to keep pushing it back on my reading list. Then I discovered that my library finally had the audiobook for it, and I just HAD to listen to it right away. I'm so glad that I did! This book is definitely one of my favorite reads of the year.

As I'm sure I've mentioned in my review for the previous books, but I must say it again... I absolutely adore the characters in this book. Actually, Lara Jean is one of my most favorite characters ever, and I've really loved reading her story over the past few years. She has a really awesome family as well, and I especially love the bond between her and her sisters. I should also add that she has a pretty sweet boyfriend as well. I love all of these characters so much!

I think may have subconsciously put off reading this book because I really didn't want Lara's story to end. But I'm so glad that I did finally read it, as I feel like the whole story wrapped up very nicely. As I mentioned above, I have a hard copy of this book, but I decided to listen to the audiobook for it instead. I listened to the audiobooks for the first two books earlier this year when I re-read the series, so I knew I would enjoy this one as well. And I did. The narrator, Laura Knight Keating, does an awesome job with the voices for each character, and it was easy to get swept into the story as she read it to me. (She's narrated for all of the audiobooks in this series, and they are awesome to listen to!)

Overall; I've said it once, and I'll say it again... Always and Forever, Lara Jean was such a great read! It is definitely a favorite of 2017. If you're a fan of sweet contemporary stories, I highly recommend you pick up this series and meet Lara Jean for yourself, and I hope you love it just as much as I do!
