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.

My thoughts:
We'll Always Have Summer is one of those books that shatters your heart into a million pieces and yet can make you laugh through your mess of tears. 
It is written so beautifully, I didn't ever want the story to end.
In the first two Summer books I thought Conrad was a huge jerk.
I seriously hated him because he was practically tearing Belly's heart in half. 
But when I read We'll Always Have Summer I fell in love with Conrad.
The chapters sometimes switched on and off from Conrad to Belly, 
and I craved the chapters from Conrad whenever I was reading Belly's.
In a way, Conrad reminded me a lot of Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice.
All the things he did for Belly that helped her so much, without her knowing about it.
And he was so loyal to his mom!
It was all just so heartbreaking.
In the previous books (The Summer I Turned Pretty and It's Not Summer Without You)
Belly really annoyed me.
I just felt like she was really immature and could never make up her mind on anything.
But she matured a lot since then, and I felt like her character was perfect this time.
I absolutely loved her!

I really hope that Jenny Han makes another Summer book!
I don't want this beautiful story to end.

We'll Always Have Summer is now one of my favorites!
I will definitely read this series again and again, and remember them forever.

  1. They are fantastic books aren't they. I cried with every one!

  2. I haven't read any books in this series yet, but I see people mentioning them on twitter nearly every day! If it's that good, I'm going to check it out next time I'm in the mood for a contemporary story. :)

  3. I completely agree! I liked Jeremiah more in the first two books, but I fell in love with Conrad in the last one!

    ****SPOILER ALERT*****
    I just wish Jenny Han showed at least one of Conrad's letter to Belly while she's in Spain.

  4. I've never heard about these book before and now I'm really curious about the story.

  5. Great review. I havent read these books puttin them on my TRL.
