Review | Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss, #3) by Stephanie Perkins

“There’s no story,’ I say. ‘I saw you one day, and I just knew.”




Book Synopsis:

Love ignites in the City That Never Sleeps, but can it last?

Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on introspective cartoonist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris.
And after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to confront the challenges every young couple must face, including family drama, uncertainty about their college futures, and the very real possibility of being apart.

Featuring cameos from fan-favorites Anna, Étienne, Lola, and Cricket, this sweet and sexy story of true love—set against the stunning backdrops of New York City, Paris, and Barcelona—is a swoonworthy conclusion to Stephanie Perkins’s beloved series.

I’m…getting there. I’m beginning to think that maybe it’s okay to be a blank canvas. Maybe it’s okay that my future is unknown. And maybe,” I say with another smile, “it’s okay to be inspired by the people who do know their future.”

It goes both ways, you know.”

I link his icicle fingers through mine. “What does?”

Artists are inspired by blank canvases.”


This was definitely my favorite book out of the whole series. The ending left me wanting more.


The character development of both Josh and Isla was so clearly seen. Josh became more perceptible and Isla became more sensitive to Josh, not to bring herself down and bring others around her down in the process as well.


Sometimes, people and friends just have an undeniable chemistry and I love how all the three stories connected to each other because it just left me wanting more.
I found myself silently screaming and rolling around my bed in multiple scenes and I was taken by surprise on how much I ended up liking this book.


This is a cliche book that doesn’t feel cliche at all.
