Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine showcasing highly anticipated titles that it’s simply torture to wait for!
My pick this week is the highly anticipated Isla and the Happily Ever After by Anna and the French Kiss author Stephanie Perkins that releases on August 14th through Dutton. Perkins’ books are contemporary young adult romances and her characters and stories are not only highly addictive but also incredibly heartwarming, funny and true. I am so excited for this book and the final chapter in the lives of Anna, Etienne, Lola, Cricket and of course this book’s protagonists Isla and Josh!
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.
