Lola and the Boy Next Door
Lola and the Boy Next Door | Stephanie Perkins
Life is pretty close to perfect for budding designer Lola Nolan, especially with her hot rocker boyfriend. That is, until the Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighbourhood and unearth a past of hurt that Lola thought was long buried. 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. Could the boy from Lola's past be the love of her future? "Magical...really captures the feeling of being in love" - Cassandra Clare on Anna and the French Kiss

I had trouble trying to get this photo up last night! So am rather late with day 2 of #fallisbooked challenge. This is an orange book cover. I don't have that many to be honest! @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

I am heading to San Francisco next week and am really excited to take this with me! It's cheesy, but I hope to head to places like the Seward Street Slides and read the chapters that take place there. #Californication #WanderingJune

This was the perfect read for a stormy weekend - visiting Lola & Cricket in San Fran made me forget about the rain and I loved spending time with these adorable characters.

I think buying books is my way to overcome pain and stress. It puts at ease and makes me happy.
I think I'm becoming one of those kinda old ladies that go into shops and buy shoes and bags and whatever.
I bought 7 books today. 7!
I couldn't believe my eyes. I felt terrible for a second, then.... I stopped.

1. The problem with being a book character is that usually something terrible has happened to them. I think I‘d go with Lola Nolan from “Lola and the Boy Next Door.” Stephanie Perkins‘ books are fluffy & romantic. Lola lives in San Francisco, makes her own alternative/sparkly clothes, her dad‘s always baking 🍪, & her love interest is a tall, lanky, adorable inventor-guy named Cricket. 🦗
2. Empire Records/Buffy ⚰️

monalyisha @ErinSueG Right? Like, basically *every* book should be titled “A Series of Unfortunate Events.” 😅 2y
ErinSueMreads @monalyisha ABBBBBBSOLUTELY! 2y
MinDea "How funky is your chicken? How funky is your chicken? How loose is your goose? Our goose is totally loose!" Did you ever watch the movie or just the show? @JamieArc how many times did we watch this movie growing up?!? 2y
MinDea Empire Records is a great movie too!!! 2y
CoffeeK8 Two great picks for the movies, both so quotable! 2y
monalyisha @MinDea I watched the movie once or twice (Luke Perry!), but the show was my jam. 2y
monalyisha @ErinSueG my only regret is that Lola doesn‘t have access to magic (that‘s not part of her world). I might consider sacrificing some (SOME!) happiness/normality for magic! 🙈 2y
ErinSueMreads @monalyisha that would be a fair sacrifice. 2y
monalyisha @ErinSueG like, maybe I‘d sacrifice the cookies. If there‘s any way to get me to give up baked goods, that‘s it. Weight loss? Nah. Magic? Fine. Although, I am imagining some serpent/temptation situation, only with a chocolate chip cookie instead of an apple. 2y
ErinSueMreads @monalyisha hey here is what I‘m thinking though. You give up cookies in exchange for magic and then just conjure the cookies 2y
monalyisha @ErinSueG Ha! I thought about that, but it seems like it would be something written into the magickal contract. 2y
ErinSueMreads @monalyisha ugh! There has to be a way to have your cookies and magic them too! 2y

Once upon a time, there was a girl who talked to the moon. And she was mysterious and she was perfect, in that way that girls who talks to the moons are. In the house next door, there lived a boy. And the boy watched the girl grow up more and more perfect, more and more beautiful with each passing year. He watched her watch the moon.

Para la diseñadora de moda, Lola, las prendas más llamativas, brillantes, y divertidas son las mejores. Es una hija ejemplar y una buena amiga con grandes planes para el futuro. Todo en su vida parece perfecto, incluso su novio roquero, hasta que los gemelos Bell se mudan de nuevo a la casa de al lado. Cricket Bell ha vuelto y quiere arreglar los problemas del pasado. Y Lola deberá reconocer sus verdaderos sentimientos hacia él. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was at the mall the other day and went into our local bookstore. Since I live in Sweden they mostly have Swedish books and the English books they have are usually really expensive. However, they had a sale and among the books, I found this gem for only 36 SEK (about 3 Euros). Imagine my happiness!

I needed this light, sweet romance this week. It's easy to get caught up in the happiness of it all. The only aspect I didn't enjoy was the "mystery" of what the neighbor "did" to Lola all those years ago. It sounds like the worst possible offense, and it's confusing when you find out the truth (aka "is that all?"). Besides that, it's an enjoyable, easy read!

Playing a bit of catch up on #riotgrams so here's my #bookishobjects: I've got a nice little pin collection at my work desk. I used to wear them on my lanyard at Barnes and Noble but needed a new plan when I got a desk job. Luckily the wall of my desk is stabby! (With special guest appearance by a Women's March postcard)

josie281 Stabby! I love it! 3y
MeganB @josie281 I couldn't think of any other word to describe it 😂😂 3y
josie281 It's perfect!! I'm excited to see your use of the walls because I just found out I may be getting a promotion to another department which has STABBY walls! 3y
MeganB @josie281 Ah!! Congrats, that's so exciting!!!! 3y
Chachic I like the "read fast, die young" one! If I had that, I would steal your idea of putting it on my work lanyard. 3y

#BookLove17 #UglyRomanceCovers Just to clarify, I don't think these are ugly. Jenna does.

eekabook I have to agree...I was so happy when they redesigned the covers for Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door. 😅 3y
Joybishoptx @eekabook we were in the library and I was telling her the topic and she didn't hesitate. "Lola. Lola is ugly." We have the redesigned one for Anna. 3y
CrowCAH What? I disagree. The Jess Rules book cover is beautifully arranged! 3y
Joybishoptx @CrowCAH I think so too! But she said it looked "unrealistic". I pointed out the novel is about vampires. It was a heated discussion. 3y
CrowCAH @Joybishoptx hmm the girl does seem entranced under vampire charm, so that would be realistic for the book genre! Case closed. 😄 3y

My next read. I loved the first one so much. So, I really dislike book covers with "real" people on them. I like to envision them myself. I'll admit to passing on a lot of books for this reason. Seems the contemporary romance genre is doing is more and more which I don't read a ton of anyway. I'm very much a "judge a book by its cover" type girl. What are your thoughts?

tpixie I agree- I don't like the cover. 3y

Okay, so this was better than Anna and the French Kiss. I loved it, and couldn't put it down. A perfect example of the right book at the right time (for me). Now on to the third book in the series!

Some #booktober #longtitles from one of my favorite silly #youngadult series. Lola and the Boy Next Door is definitely the highlight of this losely connected trilogy, mostly because Lola is a phenom firecracker, but also because Cricket is absolutely adorable. 😍 #ya #stephanieperkins

I liked Anna and the French Kiss better, personally--I identified more with Anna and got frustrated with Lola at times. I think I like Cricket better than St. Clair. I can't resist a well-dressed, kinda nerdy, considerate man. I read this book in a day. Great for a light, quick summer read.

Megabooks I felt the opposite. I found Anna annoying! 3y
