Waiting on Wednesday #2

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

This week I'm anticipating.... *drumroll please* ISLA AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER BY STEPHANIE PERKINS! But really, who isn't?

Title: Isla and the Happily Ever After
Series: Anna and the French Kiss
Author: Stephanie Perkins
Publisher: Dutton
Publication Date: August 14th, 2014
Genre: Young adult, contemporary, romance, realistic fiction

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 √Čtienne and Lola and Cricket, whose paths are destined to collide in a sweeping finale certain to please fans old and new.

Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and The Boy Next Door are two of my favourite YA contemporaries, my love for these books knows no limits! They are so adorable and lovely and ahhhhh swoon. I have so many emotions. After reading the sneak peak that I downloaded from NetGalley, my excitement for this book multiplied by a million. Already I feel like I have a connection with Isla, and I've already developed a HUGE crush on Josh.

In the past few days I've seen a couple of people (Americans mostly) tweeting about having bought their copies early. WHAT? NO WAY! WHY? HOW? ME TOO PLEASE! I simply can't express in words how envious I am of these people. Some of them have already finished reading it! 9 days before the rest of us!

I cannot contain my excitement for this book. I am practically screaming! There are nine days until the Australian release and you can guarantee I'll be swinging by the bookstore after school to pick up my copy!

Are you as excited as I am? LET'S BE EXCITED TOGETHER.


  1. I can't wait for this one! Anna and Lola were absolutely perfect!! :)
