    Liked it but left me with wanting more from it. I think her books have grown a lot more. I still enjoy reading all three books.

    This is the best book I have ever read.

    I’m so disappointed that the author chose to make the characters personalities completely different in the final book compared to the first two books. These new personas came out of no where. It’s like how are you going to paint this picture, then all of a sudden change everything. It was awful.

    The final instalment in Jenny Han's summer series was bittersweet. I was not overly impressed with the story but I was reluctant to say goodbye to Isabel and the Fishers. In a way, the story did not seem to matter too much, as it seemed to take a backseat to the ultimate goal of tying up loose ends and finally seeing Isabel married to Conrad. I have to agree with the review written by Naomi (author of the blog Inkcrush, which I love) who quite rightly pointed out the character inconsistencies created by the author trying to manipulate us into rooting for Conrad. Jenny Han did not need to do this because everyone was already on Conrad's side! If she had maintained Jeremiah's open and all-consuming nature from the first two books, it would have definitely added greater depth to the story and actually made it seem like Isabel faced a dilemma. In the first two novels, both Fisher boys are equally tempting to Isabel but by the end of the third Jeremiah seems like an immature, stereotypical frat boy and Conrad is literally Mr Perfect. I understand that it is a YA novel, written for the younger end of the spectrum but there is no need to actively talk down to the audience by creating such black and white characters.One thing I do like about this trilogy is the nostalgic tone created mainly by the lack of sense of time and even place. I vaguely recall a Britney reference in the second book but other than there were not many topical references, meaning it will probably remain a teen favourite for a long time.Overall, I have enjoyed this series- it has definitely been very up and down (for a start, I hated the title 'The Summer I Turned Pretty') and I am sure I will re-read them again someday. Hopefully, if nothing else, it will teach girls to avoid dating brothers!!

    This story kind of hit close to home because I recently got engaged, but thankfully everyone is supportive of it, unlike Belly and Jeremiah.I really got annoyed with Jeremiah in this book. He seemed somewhat different from the other two books. He seemed like he was doing what he wanted to do no matter what. He wasn't thinking of the future, he was only thinking that this will mend his and Belly's relationship. For now. And I actually liked Conrad this time around. He has definitely grown up since the 2nd book and has softened up and is just all around much nicer. And we get his POV! SO we finally know whats going on in his head.I felt bad for Belly's mom, Laurel. I couldn't understand why Belly was being almost harsh with her. I understand that Belly was just swept up in all the wedding planning, but she never took the time to really think about what her mom was trying to tell her or what her mom was feeling. I was definitely on Laurels side throughout the whole book.It was really refreshing to read about characters who were older than 17. I can't even recall any YA books with characters older than that.Overall, this was a great ending to the trilogy. I was really happy with who Belly ended up with.

    Belly has gone off to college and has devoted her time to devloping her relationship with Jeremiah. Like many young relationships, life throws Belly a curveball and she has to deal with how much she loves Jeremiah. Jeremiah assures Belly that he loves her and asks her to marry him. Belly says yes, but family and friends do not approve of the wedding happening so soon. Through the course of planning the wedding, Belly has to realize whom she truly loves and hope for the best for her future. I'm such a sucker for true love and first loves so this was my favorite book in the series. Han could write a companion book with Belly and Conrad and I would devour it too!!

    Words cannot even begin to describe how mad I am after reading this book. I fell in love with the series since the first book came out, but now I can't believe it ended the way it did. First off, Jenny Han COMPLETELY changed the characters I had grown to love. Jeremiah was sweet, caring, and amazing, but in this book he was such a jerk I couldn't stand it! Secondly, nothing really happened in the book except for maybe three major events. This makes it move slow and repetitive. And then it all wraps up in three pages, which really made me upset because I wanted to know how life was after Belly finally made her decision, but no. Now I have to say, Jenny Han is an excellent writer who really knows how to bring out emotions in her book, I just hated the way she toyed with her readers by making them jump from guy to guy because she kept on changing personalities throughout the series. Maybe I'm just bitter because I don't like not being sure about what I'm feeling, especially about people who aren't even real. So all in all, I feel like 2 is too harsh, but 4 is too much, so a I give a three to the book that is written exceptionally well but was unfair to the readers.

    Oh my goodness, I can't believe it's over. These books were soooo good! So good! This was a great, if a little unsurprising conclusion to a great series. Over the course of reading this book--in fact, from the end of the second book on--I kind of knew in my heart who Belly would wind up with. It wouldn't have seemed right if the story didn't end that way, and so while I wasn't surprised at all, I was very, very satisfied that everyone followed their hearts. Yay!Despite knowing that the wedding between Belly and Jeremiah wasn't going to actually happen I wish that I hadn't felt like Belly and Jeremiah were planning their wedding more out of stubbornness than love. I often found myself agreeing with the parental units: why couldn't they just wait until they were done with school? What was the rush? I never understood. It stopped feeling like a day built around love pretty early on, and if that wasn't an indicator of how things would end, I don't know what might have been. It was really, really wonderful to hear things from Conrad's perspective as well. I really grew to love him so much more in this book. I feel like we got played a little, though. Between Jeremiah cheating on Belly and getting into Conrad's head, the brothers were painted very obviously against each other in the reader's minds not a little unfairly. Like, were we supposed to like Jeremiah more than Conrad in this story, despite his very real love for Belly? Were we supposed to pick the cheater frat boy with easy-going cheer and charm over the smoldering, deep guy who is pushing his own feelings of intense love aside to keep a promise to his dead mother? It made me feel a little more for Jeremiah just on principle. But, seeing and hearing things from Conrad's point of view was very much welcome, and a nice change from Belly. If anyone had doubted Conrad's being in love with Belly completely and utterly before, his chapters dashed that to pieces. And I just have to say that I am intensely relieved and happy that Belly and Conrad and Jeremiah didn't end the story mad at each other. I don't think I would have believed it. I don't want to be in a world, even a fictional one, where these people hate each other. It just seemed wrong, mostly because I knew that it would be disingenuous because they don't actually hate each other at all. The anger they feel comes from loving each other too much, too deeply. Any "hate" they felt would have been a lie. And so when Jeremiah waves and smiles at Belly at the end, my heart both swelled and then shattered at the same time. I was happy that they were all happy, and sad that Jeremiah seemed to be the odd man out. It was bittersweet for me. But, in truth, the whole story was more sweet than bitter, and I was in love with how this story ended, and how hard everyone fought for their happiness. One more thing: you know what I missed in this book and, if I'm being frank, the second as well? Susannah. I understand totally that her NOT being in the story was central to the story but, man, I would have loved her to be around still, helping these crazy kids. I would have loved to have seen her in her prime, the way she was described before she got sick in the first book. What a huge presence to have lost. And even though her letters were lovely, I missed her being there as much as Conrad and Jeremiah and Laurel and Belly did.

    This book gets a star deducted for all of the whining and crying that Belly does, and how stupid she spends most of the book acting. But because I almost married the wrong person too (didn't get to the altar like her though!) I can understand why she did it and I have to be lenient. Plus I literally was holding back tears when I finished this book. If you've read the other two, you should definitely read this one too.

    We’ll Always Have Summer by Jenny HanBelly and Jeremiah are in love. College has been amazing so far, and they have gotten to know each other more than ever. Things are going good until their relationship is put to the test. To make sure their love doesn’t waiver Belly decides to become Mrs. Fisher. Everyone says they are too young and they aren’t ready. To escape it all Belly goes to stay at Cousins Beach and plan the wedding while Jeremiah works. The thing she didn’t plan on is Conrad living there too. Belly is about to make the biggest decision of her life. She always knew one day her last name would be Fisher. She is now confronted with the man she loved first and the man who has become her best friend. Belly knew it would all come together one day, she just didn’t know it would end like this.We’ll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han is a wonderful conclusion to a beautiful love story. I feel like in this book we get to really see all of the characters grow for better and some for worse. The much awaited glimpse into the mind of Conrad is finally seen. In this book he is no longer an untouchable Adonis, but a young man filled with so much emotion and so many regrets. I don’t think this was my favorite book of the series, but then again how can you choose one part of life over the other when each part got you where you are. This was a fitting end to such a beautiful story. I give this book a 3 ½ STAR rating.

    The final book in this series couldn't have been more amazing! I had always seen this series and thought it looked kind of cheesy but when I picked up the first book at the beginning of this year and started reading, I realized I was completely wrong! I blew through the first book and embraced the second book. They were both phenomenal. I couldn't wait to find out the ending to the love triangle between Conrad, Jeremiah, and Belly. It shocked and thrilled me all at the same time.In the first two books, I always liked Jeremiah. He was the good guy it seemed like, always trying to help Belly out or be there when she needed someone. In this book, however, it was like the reader got to see a whole different side to him. One that I honestly didn't like. The entire book I was like..."Belly, are you really gonna marry this douchebag?" But I've always loved Conrad. He infuriated me in the first and second book but it was in a way that you can't stop liking him either. He did what he thought was best for people even though it barely turned out right half the time. I just fell more in love with him in this book. And as always, I liked Belly. I don't love her character but I do like how she tries to think about others feelings while simultaneously making herself happy. It's hard to reach a balance with both of those characteristics but she seems to.This has been one of my favorite series. I'm so glad that I gave these books a chance because I would have been severely missing out! I hope that Jenny Han continues to write because she definitely has a gift for it.

    I liked this one in the summer series. It was really well written. I didn't like how the characters changed. Conrad has never been that nice to anybody but that changed in this book and Jermiah was acting like a jerk! I still really enjoyed these books and especially how it ended

    This was my favorite book in the Summer trilogy. It wraps up the love triangle formed by Belly, Jeremiah and Conrad in a bittersweet and satisfying fashion.
  • (3/5)
    I began reading this not knowing that it was the last installment in a series, so I'm not entirely sure of the prior events leading up to this book. Belly is a sweetly naive college girl who has been with her boyfriend, Jeremiah for the last two years, after having broken up with his brother Conrad. When Jeremiah cheats on her, her entire world comes crashing down on her. In a moment of weakness and desperation, he proposes to her and she takes him back and it brings them closer than ever before. This drives a wedge between Belly and her mother, and generally causes a huge amount of upset. So, Belly is forced to carry on with everything as planned and get ready for a wedding -- without her mother's help, or her blessing. Belly's naiveté was both endearing and grating at times. I could envision myself laying by the pool, tanning and reading this. It isn't too involved or overly complicated, and Han's writing is pretty solid and engaging. The story line is predictable, and it's pretty obvious who she's going to end up with in the end. I actually really liked Conrad a lot. Jere was kind of an inconsiderate pig and he seriously annoyed the bejesus out of me. I think I'm going to read the first two books now. I wanna know more.

    I really enjoyed this series. It was a simple read, but full of memories of childhood, boy troubles, girlfriends, college and weddings. For a great beach read - read the series and see Belly grow up.

    Going to the chapel and we're gonna get maaaried! What am I singing? ...Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Belly is wearing a white dress on the cover... just maybe. Here it is, the last book in the Summer trilogy by Jenny Han. As much as I have yearned for the conclusion, I have dreaded it as well. I couldn't imagine possibly leaving Belly. I really couldn't be happier with this conclusion. I didn't feel like I was missing Belly growing up anymore - because she is grown up. It a weird way it made the reader feel proud (or maybe I'm just crazy). I case you missed my gush-fest yesterday, I absolutely love these books. I love not having to think and just immersing myself in the story and being taken along for the ride. These books just do something to you. I don't know how to describe it, but maybe you've felt it too. I love these books so much, but I have no idea at all why I love them. I just do. I'm not gonna say too much about the plot, but I will say that I couldn't be happier. So, which Fisher boy does she choose? Well, I guess you'll just have to find out in this perfect summer read!

    As Jenny Han’s Summer series has been one of my favorite contemporary series in recent memory, I definitely had high expectations for WE’LL ALWAYS HAVE SUMMER. And yet I don’t think it was merely my high expectations that made the third and final Summer book somewhat of a disappointment for me. WE’LL ALWAYS HAVE SUMMER gave me the ending I had been rooting for since the first book, but it did so in a way that, I think, unfortunately sacrificed characterization and reader sympathy.Two years pass between the end of the second book and the beginning of this one, but I was shocked at how poorly most of the characters acted. Not only was it their actions that made me cringe, it was also their flatness: I felt like the three-dimensional, flawed, but still lovable characters from the first two books regressed into petulant children by this installment. Jeremiah, Belly, Conrad, and all the adults felt like they were playing the roles of good boy/bad boy, good parent/bad parent, unsubtly manipulating our sympathies toward them so that we can be happy—nay, relieved—at the ending. And that definitely made me feel cheated, cheated that I, as a reader, was not trusted enough to be happy for Belly and whichever guy she ended up with.And then: the marriage. It’s not that I’m against teen marriage—okay, I am, but in literature I’m willing to go with whatever the character wants…so long as it’s written convincingly. I felt like everything in this book happened too fast. Yes, I know that Belly and Jeremiah wanted things to go fast—but does that mean the story had to be told in what felt like a slapdash manner, with people running around frantically trying to coordinate things, only to have them fall into place perfectly at the last minute thanks to some “divine” (read: nice parent) intervention? Does that mean that tensions and arguments could arise seemingly randomly, and then settled without a problem a few chapters down?Still, props for finishing up a really good YA contemporary series. Basically, it wasn’t that I had a problem with what happened in this book; rather, I had some issues with how this story was told. This evidently wasn’t a problem for the majority of bloggers who loved this final book!

    Belly thought that she finally found love with the right Fisher brother who would never hurt her, but it turns out that hurt is inevitable. When Belly learns about Jeremiah's Spring Break fling, she thought they were over for good - but instead Jeremiah surprises her with a heartfelt apology along with a marriage proposal! Although she accepts, Belly has a hard time with dealing with her doubts. Still in college, still not quite over Jeremiah's brother Conrad who broke her heart so long ago, but still wanting to do the right thing with the right man at the right time.I didn't realize this was the final book of a series - and it might explain why I felt that we'll always have summer didn't really explore the relationships between Belly, Jeremiah, and Conrad as in depth as expected. Apparently it needed 2 books to do so! As a standalone, I do not think the story impressed me - everyone seemed to be avoiding each other and focusing on a wedding that seemed doomed from the start. The story gets told from Conrad and Belly's perspectives, but I wished that Jeremiah also got a chance to tell his story. I may or may not decide to read the first 2 books to see how far they matured into we'll always have summer a, but I'll need someone to reassure me that it would be worth the time!

    Belly, Conrad, and Jeremiah are back and it was satisfying to see how their story ended. Everyone is in college now and making some big life decisions. You'd definitely have to read the first two in the series to totally get what was going on in this installment. I read it in a single sitting and found myself compelled to keep turning the pages. I wish I'd get a summer invite to visit Cousins.
  • (3/5)
    Oh, this series went downhill for me. Bella exists only to be torn between Jeremy and Conrad. Jeremy is almost entirely shown as a boor, making it hard to see why Bella would even like him. Conrad's point of view finally gets an airing, and well, he's still as much of a blank slate as before. Nothing but the handsome figure and an ironic grin. I get no feeling for why he did anything, or how he felt. I almost wish I'd just stopped reading at the first book, and had happier feelings about the characters.
  • (5/5)
    I LOVE. LOVE. LOVE this series to death! I fell in love with it quickly and hopelessly. This series is one that I recommend that you must pick up. Summer loving never felt so goooood!What I like most about this book is of course the characters. Belly is all grown up now and is facing some major life changing decisions. I don't want to spill, but Belly went through some very tough times. I am glad that Belly made it through it all with great admiration. My heart felt for her and what she had to do. I am upset with her family. I felt like they should have supported Belly no matter what she wanted to do, no matter what decisions she made.Then again, without her family's interference she would have made the decisions that lead to a happy ending. Was I happy with the ending? Yes. Do I want it to end? Heck NO! But I am glad that in the end Belly is happy. That's what matters.My only gripe was the happenings in the book that leads to certain happenings. Again, I can't say much cause I don't want to ruin it for anyone, but I wanted more for Belly. I wanted her to find it without THAT happening. *sigh* Overall, this is a great series that you must read. Absolutely perfect summer reading!
