#29 - Isla and the happily ever after by Stephanie Perkins
Isla and the Happily Ever After - Stephanie Perkins

This was exactly what I needed after my kind of reading slump. This was a really beautiful story with a happy ending.

 

I liked the fact that we got a bit of the characters from the other books (Lola, Cricket, Anna…), this book is part of a trilogy but you do not really need to read all of them, but I totally recommend it because it is a great series.

 

Isla reminded me a lot of myself. She is really short (but actually still taller than me) and she got into a lot of situations that I could totally relate to. Like with Anna and the French Kiss, I really loved the fact that it took place in Paris and that the characters were going to places I’ve visited, just like their trip to Barcelona. It was also fun to read all these things about European teenagers who are different from American, it was really accurate.

 

The ending was absolutely beautiful; so many things happened that I was not expecting, it was cute and heartwarming. I definitely recommend this series.

Isla and the Happily Ever After - Stephanie Perkins

I love, LOVE this series, these characters, and their settings. I hope this isn't the end.

The story is back in Paris, the school for Americans. Our adventure begins with one red headed short girl, Isla, who is high on medication from having her wisdom teeth removed. She walks into a cafe only to see her crush for the last 3 years sitting in a booth. Her drugged mind finds the courage to talk to him, flirt and make him laugh. This is the beginning of a sweet, hot and heartbreaking romance.
Isla is shy, set in her life style and a bit insecure. She has issues about her body's height challenge and wears high heels even if it makes her feet hurt. She loves with her whole being, but she also fears with her whole heart. This fear, and her giving into it will break your heart.

Josh is the man of her dreams. He was the one she watched love another girl in their circle at school. He is an artist with a reputation of not living by the rules of the school. He gets in trouble, spends a lot of time in detention and seems aloof. He has many little secrets, and some issues of his own to grow through. He is also deeply romantic.
Together these two slowly develop their story. It is paced maidenly slow sometimes and too fast at others. Life steps in and their path is disrupted. He opens his soul to her and the magic happens. There is no violence, no disrespect, no abuse, no typically written High School rudeness. This is a good story/series that needs none of the shock gimmicks to hold it up. They all end in a HEA, and this one was even more deserved than the others IMHO.
