Review of Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss #3) by Stephanie Perkins

Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss #3)  by Stephanie Perkins


Review: I was really unsure of reading this book and put it off for a long time. I was mostly worried about it not being as good as the first two books or that it would be too goo and therefor send me into a book hangover. But I am happy I picked the book up and started reading when I should have been studying, it worked out great!

Anyway, I fell in love with this book and its characters too. Although I’m not surprised. It only took me a couple of hours to finish the book because it was so good and I just needed to finish reading it. Soooo worth it!

Ok, Isla. What I really enjoy about Perkins writing is that she does a different type of male and female, every book. They don’t all blend together, which is a good thing. Isla, is very different then the two previous female leads. I really enjoyed her because she tried to be a good person ( even though she already was)  and was a day dreamer like the rest of us girls. Because lets face it, all girls at one point in their lives day dream about the hot guy they like. They dream about how one day they will turn around and finally notice them and sweep them off their feet. I know I have done this a couple of times in my life, actually just last week I did this. So yeah, I could relate with Isla, which is the best thing for a reader to do.

I felt that Josh was a little clueless at times, but he was very much into his art. Which is understandable.

My favorite part is the ending while Josh and Isla are trying to figure everything out and they meet up with our favorite characters from the first two books. I about cried when I saw that Anna and Étienne, ok I did cry. But you can’t blame me, read the book and you will know why!

  1. That’s good to hear. I read the first two and really enjoyed them. But I’ve heard mixed reviews about Isla, not everyone liked it or it wasn’t as strong as the first two books. I’m glad I found someone who enjoyed it.
