Jul 19, Kate GirlReading rated it liked it. It makes me regret all the summers I didn't spend at a gorgeous beach house, eating blueberry muffins, swimming in the ocean whilst having multiple cute guys falling in love with me They're all flawed and just so, human!
Although Belly and Conrad were definitely a little irritating at times. It felt a bit like this series was written to be binge read!
Flew through this in a day, a super cute and summery read. Book one for Booktubeathon is complete! I wasn't a huge fan of this one Belly was WAY more annoying and childish, and it was a chore to read about her. However, the ending was good and I feel like the last book will be better because she seems like she's finally done lusting after Conrad, which was part of what made her so annoying.
Ella te da un primer libro muy dulce, pero en el segundo todo lo destruye Por tanto siento que se me quedo corta la trama en algunos momentos. Se me ha hecho demasiado corta esta segunda parte, pero les aseguro que no le falta nada.
Y aunque el final es un poco adelantado y siento que no muy bien formulado, Jenny Han tiene el toque para dejarte en incertidumbre sobre que pueda suceder. What just happened? How will i deal with this? Oh i know. This book made me an emotional mess. I can't even write a proper review. Damn you Jenny Han!! Mar 26, Aly Fantasy4eva rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Those who haven't fallen in love with a book for a long time.
Belly is grieving two losses, one being her mothers best friend Susannah who was a mother figure to her, and Conrad who never really called back or initiated any interest after she left.
With her best friend forcing her to move on, and her mother ignoring her, she feels completely isolated and filled with loneliness. Then comes the call, apparently Conrad has been missing for some days and Jeremiah needs her help to find his brother.
Does he even have to ask? Belly would go to the end of the Earth for Conrad. That worries me most of all. With some lies here and there, and sheer determination the two set of in search filled with hope, only when they do find him the both of them discover that maybe Conrad doesn't plan on coming back anytime soon. For Belly the blow is harder, he barely looks at her and is often impatient, she knows he is grieving for his mother but in the process has become almost cruel as well as dismissive, and often regards her in a disdainful manner.
Through this I finally noticed how much he had fallen for Belly, it made me question if Conrad even deserved her. This instalment is just as humorous and witty as the first.
Belly, Conrad and Jeremiah despite the issues they are going through never fail to make me laugh and snicker when my emotions got the better of me. Like I mentioned in my previous review, despite knowing that Belly has her fair share of lows on this summer vacation, I can't help but envy her. What does eventually grow into frustration from my part is Belly treating Conrad like a god, he can treat her like absolute crap to the point of breaking her, all he has to do is say her name and she is already running right back to him.
I don't call that love; I call that idiotic and foolish. Yes she has the tendency to act immature but I have always found it endearing up until that point. Belly is hurt when Conrad calls her a child, but she does happen to go over the top at times e. Upon having a disagreement she will just retort "I hate you" and I will find myself shaking my head thinking, what in the world are you doing? I found Conrad quite unbearable at some level, I just felt he went way out of line in his attitude towards Belly.
He completely knew how she felt about him, so I don't see how he can be so insensitive when she is trying so hard. The thing is, Belly tries to hard, and I often questioned whether she was obsessed with him or rather, obsessed with the idea of being with him.
It was almost as though, he could knock her down as many times as he liked, and she would stand back up and take it all over again.
That was thankfully the only issue I had. Jeremiah I really warmed to, he is sweet, caring, sensitive and at large has others interests always at heart, and that really put him in my good books.
From not knowing who to choose between the two brothers in the first book, it was obvious that I preferred Jeremiah in this one. Let me just say that Conrad doesn't exactly make himself all that likeable. I have read the synopsis of the third book though, and according to it I might be changing my mind once again. Belly is so hard to stay mad at for long, despite her mistakes I tried to remind myself that she is 15, and is still growing and learning.
Not to mention that she is just an overall lovely character. Despite my conflicted feelings regarding how she acted towards Conrad, I really grew to care for her and rooted for her constantly.
One thing, that I can not deny is how this series has the ability to tackle issues that teens in general do go through without coming across as overbearing but instead thoughtful, and understanding. Belly's story managed to give me this fuzzy feeling every time I turned a page or a chapter came to a close! The book includes a mix of emotions, at one point I would be in a fit at laughter, but then just as quick holding back tears, which is a pleasant change from my everyday typical read, which either do one or the other and at times..
The ending is bitter-sweet and left me completely shocked and aching for the next instalment. Thankfully Belly's journey isn't over quite yet, and luckily for me, I plan on riding it with her until the very end!
Jul 15, Leslie rated it really liked it. That last page! I need the last book NOW. I've grown up reading this series over and over again and I loved it this time around just as much as I remember.
Belly is still the most annoying yet loveable character around. Conrad is still insufferable. Jeremiah still deserves better. Reading about these characters feels like being wrapped in a warm blanket. I don't care that this book is the exact opposite of my current tastes this series is like an old friend and I will never not love it. For me, It's not summer without this book series.

I know i'm boring with this "You have to read this book".. May 29, Liz rated it it was amazing. Heads up: It's very apparent in this book that the relationship between Belly and Conrad is not a healthy one. It's mentioned at least 3 times that she would come running if he called her. Add the fact that Susannah's passed away and it adds another layer of sadness and darkness. They're both h Heads up: They're both heartbroken over her death and over the fact that they can't quite seem to be in a good relationship.
I haven't reviewed the first book as I write this post, BUT I really love the friendship between Susannah and Laurel the moms and how Laurel steps in at the end of this book. That prom scene broke my heart. And the scene when Belly and Jeremiah show up at the beach house. She's dealing with feelings and emotions. She's dealing with grief, too.
She's dealing with who she thinks her mom is. Although super heartbreaking, I loved the theme of being supportive of people through trying times.
I'm not saying that Belly needed to stick around Conrad as he was going through some terrible stuff and was treating her in a way that was not healthy for either of them. I think Jeremiah made a good point of, "You didn't come to see me. I only got a few texts. Also, Jeremiah needed to chill on the, "But I'm the nice guy! You know she's loved your brother since she was 10, I think.
He doesn't go overboard with it, but he does make his feelings very clear with her, which I appreciated. Even though she was very confused about her feelings for these two boys. Overall, loving this trilogy so far. Apr 18, Brooke rated it it was amazing Shelves: Picture in your mind a summer road trip, windows down and the breeze blowing in with the radio up.
Picture tires slowing rolling onto a sandy driveway with a slight gritty sound. There's a house in front of you, somewhat rustic and chipped.
You get out of the car, walk up the steps you've walked up so many summers onto a wrap around porch. Inside you hear people's voices. Not just any voices but the voices of the people who have molded you into you. You open a creaky screen door which reminds yo Picture in your mind a summer road trip, windows down and the breeze blowing in with the radio up.
You open a creaky screen door which reminds you that you are home and summer is finally here. Tangled hair, sunburned shoulders, Judy Blume, in bed by nine thirty. I'm really appreciating Jenny Han for writing such great and relatable situations and at the same time never losing site of great storytelling through the simplest of moments.
My word these books are so good!! Aug 11, Michele Mattos rated it it was amazing. I decided to reread The Summer Series this year and it's just as good as the first time. This book is the second one - it's not as good as the first one but it's still pretty good. Belly is slightly more annoying and the love triangle between two brothers made me feel more uncomfortable than the first time around, maybe because I'm older now, but I seriously can't put these books down.
I know "annoying" is not the best way to describe a main character but that's the word that comes to mind. She' I decided to reread The Summer Series this year and it's just as good as the first time.
She's like a teenager in the worst way possible, making stupid decisions and hurting people just because she can't deal with the fact that a boy doesn't like her back. Having said that, I still loved the book. For a YA romance, this is super fast paced in the sense that you just need to know what is going to happen next.
I know this is my second time reading, but there was a lot of things I didn't remember - like how annoying Belly is and how stupid Conrad is. Jere is just a ball of sunshine and Belly doesn't deserve him. They just make things interesting, even though deep down you know who is going to win. Just like the first one, I can't recommend this book enough. It's super entertaining and it's going to hook you from the first page. I have no idea who I'm rooting for in this love triangle.
All I know is that I'm invested and I'm picking up the third book right now. For more book reviews and other bookish things: May 16, Bea Casallecchio rated it liked it.
She read it years ago The first book was a little meh. But this one, oh god. Its too childish i think. The typical love triangle, between two brothers and the girl.
The girl switches from guy to guy, and is confused. I mean, its cute and all, but i feel like its an overly used cliche. Still i will read the third book, because i bought it, so.. Apr 25, Danielle Choffrey rated it did not like it. It is a known fact that I did not care for the first book. I wasn't able to connect with Belly.
The way she would string along all the guys in her life irritated me beyond belief.
Not only that but she came across as self centered and childish. I don't think she changed much from the first book. Before she passed away, Susannah was thrilled that Conrad took Belly to her prom. Belly practically had to beg him to do so, but no one knows that. She thought that since they had spent a great night in the winter at the summer house talking and kissing, she meant something to him.
Then Jeremiah calls. Conrad has disappeared from his summer school program and is in danger of failing. He wants Belly to help him find Conrad before he fails completely. They spot Conrad at Cousins, bringing everything full circle. None of them can move forward without sorting their feelings and grief about Susannah.
Again the story is told from Belly's point of view who describes her current situation and only gradually reveals what happened after The Summer I Turned Pretty. Jenny Han develops a wonderful balance between present and past events on various levels. And her writing style is just as good and casual as in her first novel in the Summer series. In It's Not Summer Without You it's also Jeremiah's turn to tell several chapters from his point of view, which gives us deeper insight into his caring and fraternal character.
Belly and Jeremiah often refer to Conrad, who needs to be found after he suddenly left college. Wow, I never dealed with such a difficult literary male protagonist before, when it comes to coping with his emotions and love.
