The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han Book Summary

Now a streaming series in Summer 2022!

Belly has an unforgettable summer in this stunning start to the Summer I Turned Pretty series from the New York Times bestselling author of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Jenny Han.

Some summers are just destined to be pretty.

Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer—they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one wonderful and terrible summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.

LovelyThis book is just wonderful. It always kept me on edge and wanting more, just how I like it..Score: 5/5

This book is timeless.I read this book once before when I was in high school and I loved it. I remembered it randomly one day and couldn’t find it, so I bought it to read on my phone. It’s just one of those books that kind of make you comfortable, like it says all the things you feel and it’s right. Everything about it is truthful and honest, and never dull. I’m grateful I got to read it..Score: 5/5

A Newfound GemAs someone who is a big time romantic, I absolutely loved this book. I heard about it from my friends who had read the book because of the show. The teen drama, the average family conflict, and the romance, I read this book in one sitting, not wanting to put it down. Belly, I found her particularly relatable, especially in the aspects of how she dealt with her romance and what went on in her mind. Such a wonderful summer read, I’ll definitely revisit this feel-good, summer teen novel..Score: 5/5

My favorite series since 2011I discovered this series when I was in 6th grade. I’m 21 now. I’ve been waiting for people to read it so they could understand what I meant when I said I wanted to spend my summers like Belly. They finally are. Get the book!!!!!.Score: 5/5

Love the bookThe book was amazing at least what I could read I bought it but it’s not letting me get past chapter 4. The sample so Im listening to the audio book on audible.Score: 3/5

Love this book 😁Omg I loved this book so much. It is one of my favorite books and I have read A LOT of books in my short life. Jenny Han is such an amazing author and I love everything she writes. If you want to know what age this book is appropriate for I would honestly say 12+. It depends though because if you are not comfortable with your kid reading curse words then maybe wait till they’re older. This is the perfect YA book to start with if you’re just starting to read them or are at a younger age. I am personally a young person myself and have strict parents but they are ok with this book. All in all I definitely encourage you to read this book..Score: 5/5

Loved it!It’s been awhile since I read something like this; it was such a good read that I couldn’t put it down, so I kinda binge read the book till I reached the last page!.Score: 5/5

💋One of the best books I have ever read 🥹💕.Score: 5/5

You HAVE to read it for yourself!To be honest, I’m really not much of a reader… like at all. I can probably count how many books I’ve actually finished on one hand. But when I find a good book, tv show, webcomic, I cannot and will not put it down till I’ve made it to the end! This series was definitely like that! Some people may think that this story moves slow, but I completely disagree! If anything, I wanted more details. This author does a fantastic job at painting a picture and allowing raw emotions to feel seen even though we’re reading a book. Honestly though, my favorite part about this book was that it WASN’T like a typical romance. Now I really don’t want people to feel like it’s being over hyped, so please read it on your own first! Start with a sample if you want. If it doesn’t pull you in with only 30 pages, you probably aren’t going to be that into it. I was pulled in after only the first chapter :).Score: 5/5

OUT OF THIS WORLDI loved this book. I read it in a day and absolutely flew through it. I wanna experience life as Belly! Amazing plot and so much character development. Cannot wait to read the rest of the series.Score: 5/5

Loved it so much!!This book is probably one of the best books i’ve ever read in my life so far. I may be biased but I just love summer romance stories especially when their like this. I can’t even describe how this book made me feel. All of the characters have so much personality. I loved how it was childhood friends to lovers and it wasn’t that cliche. Jenny Han did such an amazing job writing this. I thought it was original and wasn’t cliche. This book just had personality itself if you know what I mean. I would love to find another book like this one day. I re read this book over and over again because its so good its not like one of those books where you read one time and your done or you read but you get bored because its to cliché or the love interest or characters don’t have enough personality. No, this book was none of that it was the best of the best would 100% recommend to people..Score: 5/5

Mid.I guess i always assumed they made movies out of super good books, but it just wasn’t… the writing was kinda awful, almost like she’s talking down to the reader, like we’re children, but that could be because the narrator is a teenager, authors choice i guess?? the love story went by WAY too slow and in all honesty it didn’t make sense by the end of the book for them to be together, belly comes off as a bit stalker ish and i really wasn’t rooting for her..Score: 1/5

The only not good comment out there it seemsThere are a lot of comments out there about how this book changed their lives and how everyone needs to read this and that’s great for all the many people whose lives have been impacted for the better by this book. Let me start off saying that I like Jenny Han and I enjoyed the To All The Boys I’ve Lived Before series immensely because the characters were charming and deep... this wasn’t the case for The Summer I Turned Pretty series. Belly and Conrad seem one dimensional to me and the only character who I rooted for was Jeremiah who nobody else seems to appreciate as much as me. It seems like Conrad just kept stringing Belly a long and Belly just kept falling for it every time he did something remotely nice to her. Besides the characters, the book was set up so confusingly that I got headaches. It skips back and forth in time so much that I sometimes would have no idea when a certain chapter was taking place. The plot didn’t grip me like To All The Boys did and neither did the characters. I read the next two books just out of curiosity and I can say that they are slightly better because there is no jumping in time anymore, but they just seemed continuations of the first book where belly has to decide between a nice life with Jeremiah who will love her and support her or Conrad who has so many mood swings it was hard for me to like him. The last book actually had the best plot in my opinion because *SPOILER ALERT* I had hope for my favorite character but clearly that hope should never have existed because Jeremiah stood no chance against Conrad (who has an unhealthy relationship with Belly and strings her along like I said above). Jenny Han, I really like your work and it pains me to write about these books with such distaste since To All The Boys was such a great book and such a great series. To people who disagree with me, I respect your opinions and your experience with these books are different than mine so there is no correct way to feel about these books. Readers, if you want a light, easy, mindless read that you can read in less than a day, go for it, but if you want to read a Jenny Han book, try her best and go for To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before..Score: 1/5

Phenomenal.The plot and setting of summertime (and frankly having the same name as the main character) made this book hit even hard for me. Even though the book is fiction, the way that it is so relatable at the same time amazing. It hurts in all the right places, it makes you laugh in all the right places. The story was beautifully written and I can’t wait to finish the series..Score: 5/5

TV show is betterOne of the very, very rare instances where the TV show or movie is better than the book. The book feels lacking in developing the character’s relationships and the climax of Belly telling Conrad how she feels felt so boring and anticlimactic. This is a story that definitely translates better on screen than it does on a page. Looking forward to the next season of the show..Score: 3/5

Wish I could give it a lower star.This book is nothing but boring. My friends have been talking about how good both the show and books are. I completely disagree. I thought with all the hype on TikTok it would be something really well written. I don’t know what I’m reading half the time with this book. It’s so anticlimactic. Nothing good happened until like way over half way through the book and not to mention how annoying Belly is. She acts like everything is to be handed to her because she’s so called “pretty” now and all she dose is complain about the lack of “attention” from the boys. I also noticed lots of “mistakes”. For example she stated Belly doesn’t like mayonnaise but later in the book she’s excited to be eating it and there’s a lot of other think like this(at least in my eyes). I feel like I’m reading a “pick me” summer where there is no love interests. She talks to Conrad like once every few chapters and when she does there is no chemistry at all. He just seems like he’s watching his friends little sister. Same with Jeremiah, no chemistry or anything. All I could seem them is as friends but they barely act like that. People always say the books are better than the movie/show so I hope in this case it’s not..Score: 1/5
