Amazon + Good Reads

"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."

So far, Stephanie Perkins has been two for two for me. When I love a first book in a series chances are that I'm  so not going to love the second book (or third, or fourth, or...). I devoured Anna and the French Kiss and fangirled to a level that even I am embarrassed of and so I was reasonably hesitant when it came to Lola and the Boy Next Door. I know that I'm in the minority here, but I loved Lola even more than Anna! Cricket Bell? Be still my heart! And when I heard that there was going to be a third (and final) book in the series? I had to have it... and I've been patient... through every single release date push back... 
But I haven't seen a date change in a while so I guess I'll just sit patiently until May 2014... because really, what other choice do I have?

  1. I can't even explain how much I'm looking forward to this book! I was so sad when they moved the release date back! :(

    1. I know, right?!?! I FREAKED OUT WHEN I SAW THE PUSH BACK!

  2. That's exactly I how I feel! I'm cautiously optimistic. I want to read it so badly!!
