The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

Today we have The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han! The description of this book is:

Belly has spent her summers at the beach house with Conrad and Jeremiah, who had never noticed her noticing them. Every summer Belly hoped it would be different. This time, it is. The summer that Belly turns pretty is the summer that changes everything--for better and for worse.

This book was amazing! I mean first of all, who doesn't love a story about 2 gorgeous guys during summer, right? I'm very happy my library had this book because it was such a good read! I read half of it one night and had to get some sleep, but as soon as I woke up, the first thing I did was finish it! I loved the plot and wish that I had a place to go every summer like Belly does. I like the whole idea of how a person can change so much in a year and not even notice. It's so true. You'll love and hate Conrad at the same time. Then, at the end, you'll be going crazy knowing you have to wait till this upcoming summer to get the sequel! I hope you guys get a chance to check this one out. Hope you guys enjoy :]


  1. Hey I saw this book this summer and put it down because... Well I forget why acuallly. Yesterday was one of the worst days. My dog died. He was fifteen but really healthy even though he was blind in one eye and completely deaf. Ok this may sound really creepy, but I heard him howl one last time last night as if saying goodbye or howling for my dad. Which he was most attached to. I'm really sad, I miss him so much...


  2. Bella,
    I'm very sorry to hear about your dog. I know what you're going through. We had to put down one of my dogs before because she was really old. If you're looking for something to get your mind off of it try reading this book! Or even try When It Happens by Susane Colasanti. Those are really upbeat books! Hope you feel better soon!

  3. this was a great book luved it.

  4. This book portrays a perfect exammple of what every teenage girl wants a summer to be like. With the mystical midnight swims and walks on the beach, it really was an amazing read. It is a precious story about finding a first summer love and bloosom into a wonderful young adult. I suggest this book to ANYONE who is looking for summer adventures, with a couple twists here and there.


Comments anyone?
