I finished reading Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins a while ago. This is the third book to the Anna and the French Kiss Series. After reading all of the books in this series I can say that Anna is definitely my favorite, then Isla, and then Lola. I loved all of their stories, I love all of the relationships, not just romantically, but the friendships that occur throughout the books. This book follows Isla’s adventure through Europe and New York, Isla was introduced in Anna and the French Kiss, but she was not a primary character in that book. Isla’s parents are both Parisian and they sent her to attend SOAP, which in case you didn’t know, or remember from Anna’s story, it is an international high school in Paris, for American students. She enjoys attending school in Paris, she is at the top of her class and she loves to study, that is until she starts dating her crush, Josh (he was also in Anna’s story), she has always dreamed of dating him and when it finally happens the relationships is so much more than she expected it to be. She quickly finds herself falling deeper in love with Josh and loses herself when she is with him. This happens during her senior year in high school, so while she is busy falling for Josh, she has to apply for colleges. She doesn’t know what she wants to do with her life. Josh on the other hand wants to escape the hectic political world his life currently revolves around and focus on his artwork. Josh had a plan, Isla didn’t, but Josh helped her figure out how to create her plan and I loved the way he did that. Like every good contemporary romance story, there is always something that drives the two apart, to have them reunite through a big romantic gesture. I absolutely adored what Josh did to win back Isla. I also really liked how all the characters got to meet each other at the end of this book, since all of theirs lives interconnect. I was kinda upset when I finished reading Isla and the Happily Ever After because that meant the series was over, but I truly enjoyed reading them and their covers are amazing too. If you guys haven’t read any of these books I highly recommend them.
Have an ALMIGHTY Day!
