Have Been All Along An awesome summer read This story was so cute I loved all the characters because each and every one of them made me grin happilyBelly It was a summer I d never, ever forget.It was the summer everything began It was the summer I turned pretty Belly s whole life was measured in summers According to her, winter didn t count It was summer that mattered Why Because she gets to meet her two favorite boys, Conrad and Jeremiah.I found Belly very amusing and fun to read about She was such a lovable character And I liked her evenwhen I found out that I could easily relate to herConrad Conrad was this moody character whose next move you can t predict I liked him a lot He was the darker one when compared to his other brother Jeremiah He was also a very complicated character Belly found him frustrating in many events but she didn t give up on himJeremiah Jeremiah was the humorous and brighter one See He can t even stay still without laughing in the picture D Jeremiah was an easy going character who took everything with a casual attitude He was the fun one I can t say Conrad wasn t as good as Jeremiah Both the brothers were awesome in their own way.Jenny Han has written an entertaining and an enjoyable novel After reading too many paranormal romance novels, I believe I likedcontemporary romance a lotas in everything was normal here No supernatural stuffs to make your favorite characters stick together Everything was normal and simple in this book Nothing far fetched or complicated.If you love simple novels with cute lovable characters then this book is certainly perfect for you The Summer I turned pretty was a quick, enjoyable, entertaining and a summery read Like I mentioned earlier, it was anawesome summer read I nearly melted when Conrad was introduced That strong, silent, protective guy, why, he was even sexier than Edward Cullen And although he didn t sparkle, he certainly made up for it by his sorrowful brooding, which my heart soared out to I mean, who DOESN T understand when someone who is in pain turns to drinking and picking fights at parties There is just something so alluring, so captivating, about Conrad, because what he does not say or do in words is immediately engraved in my ever loving heart I totally, completely, 101% understand why Belly loved him her entire life As for Belly, heavy burdens are hard to accept, but World War 3.5 broke out the Summer She Turned Pretty I totally sympathized with her, with all those choices she had to make As a famous poet once wrote, Two roads diverged into a yellow wood And I, I took the one less traveled by Like this, Belly did just that Instead of romancing just one guy, she made the unusual, yet incredibly understandable choice to romance THREE GUYS And WOW Was this beautifully conflicting love SQUARE intense nearly had a heart attack, my heart beat so loud in my ears, when THIS scene happened Get out of my face, Conrad growled No Jeremiah stepped closer, until their faces were inches apart, just like ours had been not fifteen minutes before In a dangerous voice, Conrad said, I m warning you, Jeremiah So well spoken, so unique, so original, AMEN BROTHER No scene has truly ever frightened me so much, to the point where I just had to wrench this book out of my own hands and go take ten minutes breather in the bathroom But since this review isn t marked with SPOILER, I ll just say that you will have to stop and re read a few times what has actually happened at this 90 degree climax I sympathize so well with Belly, and again, I praise Jenny Han for relating SO WELL, SO WELL, I SAY, to teen girls Ms Han really brought this scene to life, it was so intense and completely, reasonably dramatic, my heart literally skipped a beat and I almost had an asthma attack I stood by the fire alone and pretended to warm my hands even though they weren t cold That s when I saw him He was standing alone too, drinking a bottle of water It didn t seem like he knew anybody either, since he was standing all by himself Ah Ms Han, you have such an elegant, easy way of making contradicting words and plain sentences flow so naturally So barely noticeable Continuing on, He looked like he was my age But there was something about him that seemed safe and comfortable, like he was younger than me even though he wasn t Again, what is this A beautiful paradox No, paradox isn t even the word I was so dumbfoundedly awestruck by this sentence that I had to stop, pause, and wonder, what was going to happen next Really, at this point in the book, things really take a turn around the bend.BUT I am truly amazed by the way Jenny Han has a talent with words, and finally releasing reader s from their growing suspicion that somethingwas going on between Belly, Jeremiah, and Conrad Things had been weird with me and Conrad and also with me and Jeremiah an impossible thought crept its way into my head Was it possible they didn t want me with Came Because THEY, like, had feelings for me I love how Jenny Han seems to remember how teenagers act, because by putting that single unnecessary like into the sentence truly, legit, won me over I had no idea how poetic daily teen slang could have been There are some things I absolutely ADORED about Belly She was so realistic in the sense that I felt she was RIGHT IN MY HEAD Like, seriously, like honestly, like LEGIT I didn t answer his question Instead I said, I was really good I could have been dancing in a company by now I couldn t have I wasn t that good, not by any stretch of the imagination You can tell by this simply put declaration that Belly has given, how much she wants this guy to love her She has gone so far, and given away her dignity, to BOAST HOW GOOD SHE IS AT BALLET Maybe we can come back later I knew he didn t mean it Part of me was mad, and part of me was relieved It was like craving a fried peanut butter and banana sandwich and then realizing two bites in that you didn t want it after all I snatched my sweatshirt from him and said, Don t do me any favors, Cam Then I walked away as fast as I could, and sand kicked up behind me I thought he might follow me, but he didn t This realistic intervention, this sudden, quirky, show of personality really is truly realistic After all, EVERY teen needs to have their mood swings, but yet, this has shown Belly s true, twisting feelings for the guy she is talking to I am truly amazed, I had no idea authors could get into my head so easily.I feel proud to be a whiny, annoying teenager, because by the ways things turned out in the end of THE SUMMER I TURNED PRETTY, there is no doubt that I will Someday Find My Prince in the two hot guys I ve obviously known all my life, but who started expressing their feelings towards me the Summer I Turned Pretty. There was so much about this book that bothered me, and I almost gave up on it several times I think the thing that bothered me most though was the protagonist Very often, if I can t connect or feel compassion for the main character, the book has slim to no chance of winning me over In my opinion, Belly was such an immature, self focused and petulant child Her actions and feelings about events and people really were annoying that I wanted to shake some sense into her, I ll providespecifics in a few But first, one of the biggest things that irk me, and for those that know my reading style, they will laugh because I ve said this often times before, I can t stand when an author doesn t tell you the name of the person narrating the story or who the story is about Very few, maybe like one or two books The Gargoyle being one have been exempt from this number one rule of mine,I want to know who is talking to me or who the story is about right awayBelly doesn t cut it , especially when I find belly buttons gross and cringe worthy Ewwww It s not untilthan half way through the book that we find out her real name is Isabel, but by then it was too late, I was calling her Bellatrix in my head and couldn t get it out Sorry, but it just happened naturally.Overall, it bothered me how selfish Bellatrix errr I mean Belly was to those in her life, including family and friends For example, her father tried so hard with her by buying her books, a piano and fixing up a room in his new apartment in the hopes she d come to enjoy spending some time with him, but NOOOOO she didn t like the books he chose, the piano was out of tune and she wanted the yellow sheets, not the pink scratchy sheets Ugh Also, she has no real heartfelt relationships with ANYONE She uses her best friend Taylor by inviting her to the beach house for the sole purpose that maybe she ll be able to fit in better with the crowd because of Taylor, but it ends up backfiring so she ends up resenting her BF Her relationship with her brother is downright mean and shallow, nothing heartfelt or aww worthy there Even her friendship with Jeremiah and Conrad left much to be desired It bothered me when Jeremiah and Belly overheard a convo between their mothers about Suzanne s breast cancer and Belly had no clue how to comfort him, all she could think of saying wasI hope your mom doesn t lose a boobReally That s all you got Glad you kept that in your little air filled noggin and didn t say it out loud How about just give him a hug and ask him if he s okay or wants to talk There were so many opportunities for her to show some depth and growth, but she just fell flat IMO.BUT, the thing that bothered me the most is that she crushes on two brothers That s just gross Pick one and stop with theI like Jeremiah no I like Conrad oh I shared a Twizzler with Jeremiah now I like himagain Oh wait I like Conrad s dark and brooding side, I change my mind, I like him betterThat gets irritating right quick next to her feeling that life got better for her when she turned pretty No really, she feltI m pretty now, life is like sooooo good now I love being sooooo pretty I was ugly before and an outsider, but now I m pretty Yay for meWhatevs shakes head Lastly, the writing was simple and the storyline wasn t very complex at all, except for trying to figure out who this Belly girl really was The story did switch back from present to past in random ways, but I don t consider that complex, just slightly irksome The one thing the book did have going for it was the setting I like seaside, beachfront, boardwalk settings, but that wasn t enough to hook me I d much prefer a Dessen book to provide me that fix All in all, there s better out there IMHO.Okay, this review feels sloppy and random I ll just blame it on the book DONE Amazingthat s only thing i can say I recommend this book to everybody One of the best books I ve ever read EDIT I keep getting notifications that people like this review and I wondered why, then after seeing other reviews I understood Here is the thing, I thought that if I read this book again now I wouldn t like it as much as me being mature and all that put into a box in my brain labeled lies I tell myself For that reason I didn t want to read To All the Boys I ve Loved Before, but then the movie came along and all that fuss As by nature I m very curious person I gave it a try The result are three sleepless nights I spent reading that trilogy, with tears in my eyes So yes, you can say that these characters might be silly, immature, and both stories too dramatic However, no one can t question Jenny s ability to put emotions into her words, and that right there I consider magic For that reason alone I think I ll always read anything she writes Bottom line is read the first three sentences I wrote all those years ago P.S Jenny you totally deserve all this popularity you re getting and I gotta say that the movie was actually really good If, by any chance, you see Noah soon can you say hi to him wishful thinking
