The café is boiling. The atmosphere is clouded with bittersweet coffee.
Three years of desire rip through my body and burst from my lips: “Josh!”
His head jolts up. For a long time, a very long time, he just stares at me.
And then…he blinks. “Isla?”

Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on brooding artist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And, after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer break, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to face uncertainty about their futures, and the very real possibility of being apart.

Set against the stunning backdrops of New York, Paris and Barcelona, this is a gorgeous, heart-wrenching and irresistible story of true love, and the perfect conclusion to Stephanie Perkins’s beloved series.

Isla’s book is awesome, but comparing to Anna and Lola’s book I think it’s not as good at least half of the book anyway.
Anna and Lola build the relationship and it has tension and drama and awesomeness, this one, okay – we already knew about Josh and Isla but still… It was too easy, too predictable… So that’s why I like the others more.

Although after 50% (or a bit more) of the book it starts to have some stresses and heartbreaking moments that make the book not so dull. Not that it’s nice to have fights but… in the case it was just too boring of a romance, no basis or friendship, they basically didn’t know each other when they started right?!

But after that some parts turned it much better, I cried, I laugh, I was angry and I was happy… It was a mix of emotions just like I was expecting to have during all the book… but it was worth it! I loved the end and I love the build-up of the characters around Isla and not only the couple.

I love Stephanie Perkins’ writing, it’s one of the best I’ve read. It’s smooth, easy and just lovely. It makes me smile all the way till the end always!

I love these books because they’re easy to read and at the same moment they’re just so damn good. You just don’t notice the time passing while reading them! I just can’t get enough of these books. For sure one of my favorite “trilogies”.

The settings are perfect. The characters are once again perfect and the story lines are just extremely lovely.
This are dream stories that you just can’t forget. And if you could have you wouldn’t let that happen 😛
