Isla and the Happily Ever After

Author: Stephanie Perkins

Publisher: Usborne Publishing

Genres: Young Adult, Romance, Contemporary

Pages: 375

Format: Paperback

Buy: Book Depository | Amazon

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 😛

So when talented inventor Cricket steps out from his twin sister’s shadow and back into Lola’s life, she must finally face up to a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.

When I started reading this book, I saw a looooot of people saying that they love this one even more than Anna and the French Kiss… Of course I didn’t believe 😛 how could it?? …

Well this book is amazing!!! Because it not only has a new principal awesome character, Lola, it also had Anna and Etienne! And of course a new boy hihihi. But this book??? It as an AMAZING storyline, dialogue, everything! And of course the writing is once again spectacular.

When I started reading about Lola and Max I actually liked him… And it actually looked well with Lola since she is super unique. But than Cricket happens. And I was oh so wrong!

Cricket! That story! Lola! Ahh they are perfect!! Lola is wow… I love her!! She is so cool and she has the most perfect style ever!! And Cricket? Well he is so damn perfect! >.<

This book is touching and it made my heart melt and cry and explode.
I love that we have all the characters joining, it’s just perfect!
It’s super easy to read, flowing story that you just can’t stop reading!
These books are so sweet so perfect!

Highly recommend!!!
LOVED IT!!

Publisher: Usborne Publishing

Genres: Young Adult, Romance, Contemporary

Pages: 400

Format: Paperback

Buy: Book Depository | Amazon

Anna has everything figured out – she was about to start senior year with her best friend, she had a great weekend job, and her huge work crush looked as if it might finally be going somewhere… Until her dad decides to send her 4383 miles away to Paris. On her own.

But despite not speaking a word of French, Anna finds herself making new friends, including Etienne, the smart, beautiful boy from the floor above. But he’s taken – and Anna might be too. Will a year of romantic near-missed end with the French kiss she’s been waiting for?

AHH I loved it so freaking much!!!!
It’s so cute so easy to read and it really causes so many feelings!!

I loved the characters, they were amazing, super realistic, super different from each other!
I loved the building of Anna’s and Étienne’s relationship as friends first and cute moments in between and some tough times also. It was nice to see them as more than boyfriend and girlfriend, I loved that they didn’t start dating right away, made it much more interesting.
They had to fight to be together and it was something many people would be able to relate to.
Even the friends’ moments are super relatable, I saw myself a lot in Anna with her friends. Not so much for the “Étienne” part, sigh 😛

I love Stephanie Perkins writing, it’s beautiful and her words all flow so easily that time just flies and you end the book… I loved it, I just don’t know why I didn’t read this before!

The best sentence in this book was definitely:

For the two of us, home isn’t a place. It’s a person. And we’re finally home.
