Waiting on Wednesday: Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

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

My pick this week is:

Isla and the Happily Ever After
Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
Expected release date: September 17th, 2013
from 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 √Čtienne and Lola and Cricket, whose paths are destined to collide in a sweeping finale certain to please fans old and new.
I've been waiting for this book for what seems like forever. It will be 2 years when it comes out. If you read Lola when it came out like I did you know exactly how I feel. Now don't think I'm complaining. I think Stephanie Perkins can do no wrong and if it means we get an amazing book she can take as long as she likes (but please, please don't let it be pushed back again). Also there's no complaining from me because I want to put off saying goodbye to these characters. They're my babies :).

The old covers were super cute, but I really like the new ones, too. They're pretty but simple.

What are you waiting on this week? Have you been waiting for Isla as long as I have? What do you think of the new covers? Tell me in the comments!



  1. Personally I think the cover is simple but the synopsis sounds great! I would definitely put this on my tbr list for a rainy day.

    I love how both of you guys are reading clockwork princess! How is that series btw?

  3. I can't wait for Isla! It sounds so amazing! I don't like the new covers, though - I thought the old ones were so much cuter. :( Awesome pick!
