Waiting on Wednesday (14): Isla and the Happily Ever After

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating. 

Book: Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss #3) by Stephanie Perkins
Publication Date: August 14, 2014
Publisher: Dutton

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.

There are no words to express how excited I am with Ms. Perkins' latest book. I am lucky to have read an excerpt and it only fueled my obsession with having my grubby hands on this sure to be wonderful conclusion to the series we have loved since Anna and Étienne. Thank the lucky stars that the waiting is soon to be over. 

In related news, I will get a chance to meet Stephanie Perkins this coming Sunday. EEEEEEEP!

So what books are you waiting on?

  15. Great pick! I read Anna and the French Kiss two years ago and I absolutely loved it, though I still haven't read Lola and the Boy Next Door! Maybe I'll read it before this one comes out.

  20. You know, I LOVED Anna and the French Kiss, but I didn't really love Lola. I'm hoping that Isla redeems Ms. Perkins for me! Great pick this week :)

  21. Are you going to the book signing event this weekend?

    I'm not a fan of this series but I have read Lola and the Boy Next Door. It was fun and lovely. I really like Lola and her perkiness. I didn't finish reading Anna and the French Kiss.

    That's why I avoid reading excerpt and chapter teasers. It just makes me feel impatient. LOL.

  22. Hmmm sounds like I should give this series a go ;)
