This is the last post on “Valentines Week” and we have finally arrived to my favorite book on this series. I love all the books in this great trilogy. But this one is definetly my favorite. So let’s get on with it lol…
Isla and The Happily Ever After
by Stephanie Perkins
“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.”
I’ve read this book sooooo many times. I just can’t get enough of it.
So, here are my top 15 favorite quotes…
“Phones are distracting. The internet is distracting.The way he looked at you? He wasn’t distracted. He was consumed.”
“A blank canvas…has unlimited possibilities.”
“St. Clair waggles his eyebrows at Josh, but the moment he sees that I’ve caught him, his expression changes to a flirtatious grin. “Aw, mate,” he says to Josh. “Admit it. You couldn’t resist me.”
Josh relaxes into a smile. “You’re like a gorgeous little bonbon.”
“Delicious in every way,” St Clair says.
Anna rolls her eyes. “Wait until you try his creamy centre.”
“Umbrellas are so small and sad and easy to forget.”
“I smile up at him. “It’s beautiful. But what comes next?”
“The best part.” And he pulls me back into his arms. “The happily ever after.”
“The lines are careful. They reveal he pays attention. People don’t think he does, because he daydreams and skips class and neglects his homework, but when I see his drawings, I know they’re wrong.”
“My voice grows even smaller. ‘Because I thought no one could love me.’
‘And why did you think that?‘
‘Because I didn’t think I was worth loving.”
“That being singular is the exact thing that makes something–or someone–amazing”
“People can play dumb all they want, but they always give themselves away in actions. In the small moments like that.”
“I’m beginning to think that maybe it’s okay to be a blank canvas. maybe it’s okay that my future is unknown.”
“There’s no story,’ I say. ‘I saw you one day, and I just knew.”
“Josh bear-hugs St Clair. “I’m sorry you’re off the market.”
“Don’t tell Anna, but I bought one for you, too,” St Clair says.”
These books are a most read… Love them!!!
