    One thought on “The Summer I Turned Pretty”

    1. 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-lovin [...]

    2. 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 provide more speci [...]

    3. Amazingat's only thing i can say! :) I recommend this book to everybody. One of the best books I've ever read :)EDIT: 19 likes for two sentences? seriously, well thank you! Still this book is probably the best summer book ever.

    4. I didn't like this book.The thing that bother me the most was the girl, Belly, she was VERY annoying. I also just couldn't connect with the story, I mean all the book is about how much she loooooves Conrad (one of her mom's best friend's sons) and everything in her lifes revolves around Conrad.It was bording on obsession actually, she came across as pathetic. And she complained about EVERYTHING, that the boys wouldn't play with her, that the boys weren't paying her attention, that her bestfriend [...]

    5. Rating: 4 1/2 stars Characters: 5 stars Setting: 5 starsPlot: 4Honourable Mention: To Susannah. For being the embodiment of summer, and pretty much perfect.***OOH, possible spoilers ahead guys, watch out!Well. So that wasI feel a lot like this: Because I am sure of two things: 1.) I freaking love this series. And Conrad. I really freaking adore him, more than Jeremiah I am happy to say. Ah, to be young and fictionally in love2.) This is my new favourite series. And three, because I'm just boss t [...]

    6. 4.5? 5? I don't even know, but this book read like a dream and I really enjoyed it. Also, I am terrified about what is going to happen in the later books.

    7. This book made me want to cry tears of blood.Belly, if someone is hurting and tells you to stop talking, you don’t just kiss them. Also, if you and your friend overhear about his mother’s breast cancer, you don’t think thoughts like ‘oh, I hope she doesn’t loose a boob’No. Just, no.My husband does not approve of you.Low Points in this book:Belly.Girl, this is for being whiny and obnoxious. Also, for being a bitch to your mother and thinking that she would never ever do anything for y [...]

    8. 3.5/5I was in the mood for a YA contemporary romance and this was perfect for that. I loved the story, even if most of the characters were not super developed. Just a good ol' YA contemporary romance.I liked Belly for the most part even though she was a little bratty at times, LOVED Jeremiah, liked Cam alright, and didn't really love Conrad most of the time. Overall, pretty alright! I'm excited to read the rest of the trilogy.

    9. ☼ An awesome summer read ☼This story was so cute! I loved all the characters because each and every one of them made me grin happily. Belly"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 su [...]

    10. DISCLAIMER: This is a very negative review, so if you don't like hearing unpopular opinions, I would advise against reading it.WHY DID I DECIDE TO READ THISI almost hate this book. I like to find the good in every book I read, because there's always something, so I never say I hate a book. Even so, this one comes close.~Why I Read This Book~So here's a bit of my background when it comes to Jenny Han:I read To All The Boys I've Loved Before a few weeks ago. I thought it would be a fun read, but i [...]

    11. I read it in one sitting. Even though there’s a thin air of sadness coating the story’s atmosphere, to me it was still familiar, warm and comforting. Jenny Han’s writing and stories usually do that. I appreciate how the first book to this trilogy is more like a coming off age novel more than anything. The writing actually reminds me of that of Shug, a middle school book written by Ms. Han which was completely endearing. The entire story happens in a span of an entire summer but I was impre [...]

    12. Hi, so this book isn't technically a five-star read. It's a little cliche and a lot cheesy and centres around a love triangle and just is not a literary masterpiece. I don't care about any of that though because this is the book I was reading before I was a reader. This is the book that made me want to read. This was the first book I read into the night. The first book I couldn't put down. This was the book of my preteen years and the nostalgia I feel for this book surpasses any reservations I h [...]

    13. *** 2.5 stars ***“Would you rather live one perfect day over and over or live your life with no perfect days but just decent ones?” I started reading ‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’ because I felt like a reading slump was heading my way and a couple of people told me that this would be the perfect book to read in such a situation. And it actually is because this was such a quick read and I finished it in less than a day. It’s also a perfect summer read that you can enjoy while spending yo [...]

    14. Perfect book to get me into the summer mindset! I started reading it this morning when I got to the beach and I didn't stop until I read the entire book. This book is about more than summer and romance, but also family, self, and loss. I enjoyed every single character and how they were more complex than they first appeared. I definitely want to read the rest of the series soon (and also go to the beach a couple dozen more times).

    15. Just some thoughts.Actual rating: 2.5 starsBelly: Belly's pretty much clueless the whole time. She thinks the world revolves around her but it doesn't. She's shallow as hell. But for some reason, she doesn't annoy me too much. (She was getting on my nerves a lot toward the end of the book, though.) Overall, she's just an okay character.(view spoiler)[Though I can't believe how she treated Came just abandoned him after using him for so long. What the heck?(hide spoiler)] I also don't get how she [...]

    16. No llega al aprobado por muchos motivos, pero tampoco se lleva la menor puntuación por otros. Me explico:El verano en que me enamoré prometía ser una novela sencilla y rápida de leer, y lo ha sido. Sin duda, es lo mejor de esta historia: lo simple y rápida que es. Sin embargo, eso no significa que sea buena. De hecho, tiene muchísimos fallos.La primera mitad de la novela no tenía rumbo ninguno. DE VERDAD. ¿Qué me cuentas de Taylor? ¿Qué me importa que jugases en la piscina con tus sup [...]

    17. 4.5 This book really surprised me. I loved it! Like CAN I HAVE A CONRAD (Preferably One who doesn't smoke)

    18. DNF at 30%I’m sorry to anyone who loved this book. I’m glad you loved this book, really! But this is what makes book world, book world; diversity in opinions.Okay, The summer I turned pretty is about a girl named Belly (I know), who every summer goes to this beach house they share with their mother’s best friend, who by chance has two swoon-worthy boys. I was not interested, I was not intrigued, I felt literally nothing. By now the characters names are slipping out of my grasp. Belly, our [...]

    19. The Summer I Turned Pretty is the first book in a YA series that by all accounts, seems to be well-loved and incredibly popular.It’s your typical teenage love-triangle set against a pretty backdrop of sea, sun and sand, and not a whole lot else. With these types of books, when we all know what’s going to happen, it’s the characters and dialogue that really make the story.It’s a pity then, that I so intensely disliked Isabel.She was, to put it bluntly, a brat. (Other words I came to assoc [...]

    20. 284 pages where absolutely nothing happened.I originally wanted to give it a star, but well, at least I finished the book, so this is me being nice. I've read many books with annoying-but-bearable protagonists, but this one made me want to pull my own hair out.Belly wasn't that bad, but whenever I tried to like her, she immediately did something entirely stupid and I just had to hate her all over again. Not exaggerating, but she was annoying 90% of the time. Like how many boys was she interested [...]

    21. Rating: 4.5I'm so glad I bought this with me now. It's one of those books that guarantee's you butterflies and giggles.Every summer Belly visits cousins Beach with her mother and brother. There they meet up with Susannah (her mothers best friend) and her two boy's, Conrad and Jeremiah. Belly has always loved Conrad. But she has always been able to rely on Jer. He's the safety net, the sweet, uncomplicated best friend type-of-guy. But this summer promises to be different. You see, Belly's all gro [...]

    22. "I think he would have stayed with her forever, trying to figure out the mystery. He was a puzzle solver, the kind of person who likes theorems, theories. X always had to equal something. It couldn't just be X".Isabel "Belly" measures her life in summers, it has always been the most important time of the year. Everything good, everything magical and everything special happens between the months of June and August. It's when her family shares a beach house with her mother's best friend, Susannah, [...]

    23. 2 Bad Jenny Han STARS"It's the imperfections that make things beautiful." POP SUGAR READING CHALLENGE 2016 A BOOK THAT TAKES PLACE DURING SUMMERNo hay mucho que decir de este libro, porque la historia no dice mucho realmente. Yo buscaba una lectura ligera por eso escogí esta, pero no me imagine que tan ligera sería, los últimos capítulos tienen un poquito de drama, pero hasta eso se siente ligero. Tenia planeado darle las 3 estrellas, pero le baje una por una simple razón: (view spoiler)[Lo [...]

    24. Awe, this was a great book! Very relatable and surprisingly heart breaking. There's just something about ocean air and summer days that make growing up easier. I loved this story.

    25. Re-read 8/1/17: I needed a fast, fun re-read after the chaos of booktubeathon and this perfectly fit the bill for me. I'm keeping my rating at 4 stars because while I did have some issues with it, I still enjoyed this SO much. Also older Chelsea is over Conrad's shit tbh. It's all about Jeremiah now. JUSSSS SAYIN'Original read 4/25/14: *hugs myself* oh, conrad

    26. “Moments, when lost, can't be found again. They're just gone.” This book was so sweet and romantic, it's a great read for valentines.4.5 / 5 StarsFind this one and more reviews on my blog! :A Book. AThought. I've loved this one guys,again I'm trapped by the incredible Jenny Han writing style , really is one of those authors who know how to put together a catchy story that will make you feel many things, I think her books are so easy to read, I've just flow through the pages, was great.My fir [...]

    27. THIS WAS SO CUTE The Summer I Turned Pretty managed to be the exact cute, light-hearted, quick read I needed. It was pretty straight forward and predictable but was entertaining enough that I didn't really mind. There isn't anything super special about the plot of the characters, it just has a nice feel to it overall that makes this a pleasant read. Definitely worth reading if you're into YA contemporary!

    28. I’ve heard a lot of gushing and good reviews about this novel, and that it has a lot of similarities to Sarah Dessen’s stories. Well, let me tell you, I do NOT agree, and I’m a HUGE fan of Sarah Dessen, and to compare it with her works? To be honest I find it insulting, even if Sarah Dessen herself said that this story was great, I just didn’t feel it. And it's not because I had a lot of expectations of the book, I swear I had never heard of it, but it seemed interesting, and it had a 30 [...]

    29. (2015 review)★★★★ I don’t know how to feel about this covers it could be so much worse than what it is, i personally don’t like them. When i finished this a couple of hours a go, i stayed up all night reading this! i gave the book 5 stars with a real rating of 4.5 but now that i think about it it’s really just 4 solid stars since they where things that bothered me, little things but still i feel this is the best rating that i could give to the book. I was looking for something shor [...]
