Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss, #3)
by Stephanie Perkins
Publishing date: August 14th 2014
I just realized that I've never actually reviewed Anna and Lola. Since I didn't review the first two books, I wasn't going to review this one either, but then I thought about it, and decided that it's not up for discussion. I DO have to review Isla to make up for not reviewing the previous two books and telling everyone about the most amazing books ever (okay, most amazing books ever after Harry Potter). If there is still a person who hasn't read Anna and Lola, I suggest you not to waste time on reading my review, but go and pick up yourself a copy of Anna and the French Kiss and read the awesomeness! Than you can come back and thank me later for making you read these books!
Stephanie Perkins is a very special author for me. She's one of the very few whose books I can read whenever I don't feel like reading and they'd make me feel better. When I'm reading one of her books I just get that happily ever after feeling. Everything feels better. Her characters, her adorable stories, everything just makes you happy.
Isla and the Happily Ever After is a little bit different than Anna and Lola. While in the first two books we had to wait until the end for them to figure out their feelings and kiss, Isla and Josh are pretty straight forward. They admit their feelings pretty fast, and from there, we get to read about the most adorable relationship ever.
Until . . . the insecurities come in. Isla is insecure about many things. She's not sure what does she want of her future, and when she has to spend some time apart from Josh, she starts doubting him and their relationship. This wasn't my favorite part of the book, but it made to book seem more realistic. We get the feeling that they're an actual couple, and not some imaginary couple made up in heaven. But speaking of favorite moments, there was a LOT of them, but if I have to pick one, it's when Anna & St.Clair and Lola & Cricket made an appearance in the book. I was sooo happy to see them again and to get some kind of closure in the end.
We have the cutest couple, the most romantic city in the world, amazingly adorkable story, and probably one of the best authors - which means, yes, I'd recommend this book!
