The moment I read the title, I knew that I won't like the story of this novel. The genre itself is not for me. That said, I choose to enter this book for the 2021 PopSugar Reading Challenge Prompt: a book your friend would love. My BFF, as well as my roommate, love this genre: cheesy and cliche teen stories about crushes.

The main character is the most selfish of them all, and all she talks about are boys. Like the world revolves around her. She always says she's not a kid anymore, but she still acts like the spoiled brat that she is. If you like stuff like that, this is for you.

The redeeming factors for this story are the close ties between the two mothers and some contemplative moments of the protagonist.

It's really more of a 3.5 but I chose to round down this time. Its really just kind of a boring book. Belly was immature and yeah.....just boring. I didn't get any chemistry between her or any of the male characters in the book. The ending seemed a little rushed as well. I am thinking the story may have flowed a little better and been more interesting if it alternated views between Belly and Conrad. Conrad definitely seemed like an interesting guy and I would have liked to been in his mind set. Susannah was also very interesting who we didn't get enough from in my opinion. Unfortunately I don't think I will continue with the series. I just have no interest in what happens. ( )

I was hoping I'd enjoy this one more because To All the Boys I've Ever Loved was such a fun series. This one is much more immature and empty. The characters have no depth. Belly and her brother spend every summer at a beach house with their mother and her best friend's family. Belly has a crush on one of the sons in that family, Conrad, but never matures past a surface crush. There is a huge emphasis on looks over personality, (this shouldn't be surprising based on the title). The two characters that I actually wanted to spend time with are the moms, Susannah and Laurel. Unfortunately, we barely scratch the surface of their lives. The series continues, but I won't be reading the rest. ( )

“Would you rather live one perfect day over and over or live your life with no perfect days but just decent ones?”


This was good and then it was not. I loved this story so much but at some point the story just suddenly didn't feel like it for me. I guess I also have to include that I tried reading the second book in this series but I had to accept that that was just it for me.

I think this book might have been a good standalone book instead of a series because as a ya reader I really didn't seem to get intrigued by the plot enough to finish the series. Which is pretty sad since I adored the writing style and the characters were all so cute and I loved them to my hearts content. EXCEPT!! Belly. I got so annoyed of her and I don't even understand why. And with that being said I didn't ship her with any of the male love interests.

In the end, even though I generally did not like this book I loved the little details of the books. such as the quotes how the boys acted to Belly, the relationship of the boys to their mom, etc. This is a nice sweet book that might have been better, for me, if it was just a standalone.

didn't like it very much. i mean, who doesn't like conrad he's hot and all most of the time but my heart just hurt for jeremiah. and cam too? i don't really think she should be slut-shaming her best friend when she's going for an unattainable guy and leading on two others . belly which is kind of an ew nickname but whatever for sure does think that the world revolves around her, it's not pretty. i'm assuming she wore cam's sweatshirt all the time around the house just to make conrad jealous? but i guess the reason i liked this book was that it was quick and it did have some cute moments sprinkled throughout.
