Isla and the Happily Ever After

From Goodreads

By: Stephanie Perkins

Publication date: August 14th, 2014

From the glittering streets of Manhattan to the moonlit rooftops of Paris, falling in love is easy for hopeless dreamer Isla and introspective artist Josh. But as they begin their senior year in France, Isla and Josh are quickly forced to confront the heartbreaking reality that happily-ever-afters aren’t always forever.

Their romantic journey is skillfully intertwined with those of beloved couples Anna and Étienne and Lola and Cricket, whose paths are destined to collide in a sweeping finale certain to please fans old and new.

Stephanie Perkins’ previous books are both on my all time favorite books list. She has a way of writing super romantic, very believable contemporary YA books. Her characters are so detailed and the romance in them is so authentic. No insta-love here! And if you want to read some absolutely perfect kissing scenes, these are the books for you. So I can’t wait until this book is released! I’ve already pre-ordered it, and if you haven’t read any of her other books yet, you should check them out!
