i am hard on myself. but isn‘t it better to be honest about these things before someone else can use them against you? before someone else can break your heart? isn‘t it better to break it yourself?“

Decided to finish up this series finally. Was it cutesy and a bit ridiculous? yes. Did I still enjoy? Yes. Of the three girls I probably related to Isla the most being the shy middle child between two sister with much stronger personalities. Fun light hearted read in between my more serious ones.

This was crazy dramatic to the point where I wasn't sure if I would like it! However, the characters and their development really pulled me around in the end and I did indeed enjoy this.

Idk why Stephanie Perkins insists on making me cry, but I‘m a sucker for romance stories. Love this series. Isla and Josh were absolutely perfect. I really wish Josh‘s graphic memoir was an actual thing lol....and I‘m also kind of bummed Meredith has yet to experience her own happily ever after. 😭💕

I really enjoyed Isla's story. I related to her feeling that everyone else had everything figured out while she just didn't know what to do with her life. I also loved her obsession with adventure books of all kinds and going sightseeing with her and Josh in Paris and Barcelona.

I definitely joined the #BadDecisionsBookClub and stayed up too late to finish. I couldn't bear to leave them in the state they were in. The dark moment is dark, y'all.

I think this one is my favorite in this companion trilogy. I loved how our characters weren't immediately likeable, and I loved that their relationship wasn't perfectly easy. I can understand why people wouldn't like this, but I enjoyed it.

Oh Thanksgiving leftovers and the 🍽 of starches. Was hungry after my Black Friday shopping venture, but I think my eyes might be bigger than my stomach. Got a few books for me and a few gifts as well (not pictured) at the book fair. #emojinov #bookhaul

1.5/5 ⭐️ Ugh. I wanted to like this. And although I really enjoy Stephanie Perkins's writing style, i didn't enjoy the story that much. There were cute moments but there were lot more moments that made me roll my eyes, cringe, and just annoy me. It felt like the story dragged on and on and I didn't understand the ending at all I really would've preferred if Ilsa didn't end up with Josh. I didn't like Josh at all and Ilsa was annoying at times.

Enamorarse en la ciudad más romántica es fácil para Isla y Josh. Pero a medida que avanza el último curso, Isla y Josh se ven obligados a afrontar la realidad, porque, quizá, su historia no acabe con un «felices por siempre jamás». ¿Seguirán juntos cuando los días en el instituto se acaben? ¿Será su amor más fuerte que la distancia? Su romance se convertirá en un apasionante viaje acompañados de sus amigos Anna, Étienne, Lola y Cricket. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love reading YA contemporary during the summer! It's the perfect time for quick, feel good reads. I've read and loved all the books in this pile except Geekerella, but I plan on reading that one soon.

britt_brooke I loved the Stephanie Perkins books! 3y
VanChocStrawberry I've read all except the middle ones by the "c" author. Fangirl is one of my favorites! I think you'll like Geekerella. It's a fun, quick read! 3y
annkuch13 @VanChocStrawberry Those are by Robin Constantine. They're cute though not quite as good as the others pictured. I'm excited about Geekerella! 3y

This book was cute. Even though the problem in the middle was kind of dumb, I think this is a better story than the first two. Specifically, because this didn't involve cheating. I love Isla. I've pictured Emma Stone as her. Josh...beautiful as ever, just like Cricket. Good book to end the series. Book: 5/5. Series: 3/5 Highly recommend.

"A blank canvas...has unlimited possibilities."

I just finished my reread of Isla today and somehow, I like it even more than Anna! It was so cute and relatable, and the ending was just perfect. ?

I think I'm going to use Litsy as more of a secondary platform from now on, because being consistent here and on Instagram is difficult. I'll still be active, just not as frequently. ?

"I‘m…getting there. I‘m beginning to think that maybe it‘s okay to be a blank canvas. Maybe it‘s okay that my future is unknown. And maybe,” I say with another smile, “it‘s okay to be inspired by the people who do know their future.” “It goes both ways, you know.” I link his icicle fingers through mine. “What does?” “Artists are inspired by blank canvases.” My smile grows wider."

I bought this little jewel tonight at our local Books a Million along with five others for under $15! I'm a sucker for a great sale. I got this baby, Illuminae, Once Again (a OUAT book), Dangerous Deception (a Beautiful Creatures book), Reawakened, and Stealing Snow and I'm so excited! I was like a kid at Christmas😂 I actually put ToG on pause because I need a little break from fantasy so this is my #currentread, what's yours?

It's Regents week, and I'm working with some students who have testing accommodations. Basically they need a quiet room to themselves, and I get to sit with them and read while they take their tests. Finished Isla and the Happily Ever After, a light fun romance, and read a large chunk if Days of Blood and Starlight.

⭐️⭐️⭐️.5/5 | Yeah, so when I said I was liking the book more than the other two in the series? Not the case anymore. The second half took a turn for me, I didn't like how Isla's personality seemed to suddenly change, along with the fact that the relationship development didn't feel believable to me. The end just felt too disjointed.

I haven't given up on ACOMAF yet...just taking a little break. About halfway through this one and I'm surprisingly loving it. I wasn't big on the first two books but this one has the elements I did like, plus a somehow more swoonworthy romance than either of the first two books. I've been on such a contemporary kick lately that i'm struggling to finish any fantasy books 😥

Isla and the Happily Ever After is the weakest of the three Perkins titles in this series, but it's still a feel-good teen romance. Josh and Isla are cute together, but there were definitely moments where Isla's choices and her reactions to those choices annoyed me. The ending makes up for all of it, though!

3.5 stars

So I've read all three in the series, but had to wait before posting a review. To be honest I picked up Isla first and then read Anna and then Lola. My first thoughts are that I like that there are solid male leads, that weren't flaky. Even the females are strong just struggling in their own ways. I think if I HAD to choose it would be 1) Lola 2)Anna 3)Isla! #ya #teenlit #nevergrowold

These Stephanie Perkins books always have me smiling from ear to ear the whole book until the end. They are the perfect little fluffy romances novels , with extremely cliché titles, but the stories are wonderful. Perfect to read in between dark/serious books ! 💚
