Book Review – Isla and the Happily Ever After

Isla and the Happily Ever AfterIsla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

Man, am I a sucker for happy endings and this one is completely swoon worthy! “Isla and the Happily Ever After” is the final book in Stephanie Perkins’ trilogy which also includes “Anna and the French Kiss” and “Lola and the Boy Next Door.” Ms. Perkins’ prose is sassy, escapist and romantic without being saccharine. I wanted to float away with her two protagonists, Isla and Josh, while they fell in love. This novel is a satisfying end to the trilogy, complete with fun cameos by the main characters from the previous entries. I tore through this book and was slightly sad to see it end, but mostly it left me with a fuzzy, warm feeling. I suggest you read Stephanie Perkins’ books and experience it for yourself.
