BOOK OF THE MONTH (FEB ’15): Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

As cliche as it may be, I have no qualms suggesting a sickly sweet book for February. It’s the love month. Everyone can forgive the overly cheesy sentiments and actions that come with it. Go ahead, dive into this one and fall in love (or quite possibly, barf, if you’re a cynic) with the sweet and utterly enviable young love.


Isla and the Happily Ever After

by Stephanie Perkins

Genre: Young Adult

“Phones are distracting. The internet is distracting.The way he looked at you? He wasn’t distracted. He was consumed.”


Love ignites in the City That Never Sleeps, but can it last?

Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on introspective cartoonist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to confront the challenges every young couple must face, including family drama, uncertainty about their college futures, and the very real possibility of being apart.

Featuring cameos from fan-favorites Anna, Étienne, Lola, and Cricket, this sweet and sexy story of true love—set against the stunning backdrops of New York City, Paris, and Barcelona—is a swoonworthy conclusion to Stephanie Perkins’s beloved series. ▲ (View my full review here.)
