I could not physically put this book down from the moment I started it–no bathroom breaks, no food breaks (and that’s saying a lot coming from me), nothing.
I read Anna and fell in love with Étienne. Then I read Lola and Cricket swept me off my feet. But you guys, as much as I loved these two male leads, they do not compare to Josh.
He is the most swoony out of them all! I’m getting all starry-eyed just thinking about him . . . What’s more attractive than someone with passion? As he’s lost in his art he’s stealing my heart! Not to mention the passion he has for Isla. I felt them in the most visceral part of my heart–I ached for them, I laughed with them, I hurt with them and I loved with them.
And Isla? I connected with her on a level that I didn’t with the other two ladies. As fantastic as the first two books were–and I LOVED them–Isla just got me, and I got her. I’ve never been one to have supreme confidence and I understood where she was coming from and how she was feeling. As much as I wanted to shake sense into her because–as an outside viewer–I could see how wrong she was about herself, I knew the journey she’d have to take because I’ve been there myself.
Isla, let’s be besties, kay?
Stephanie Perkins is a YA Master! She understands the teenage psyche and uses that little teenage spirit inside us all to draw us completely into her stories. I ended this book wanting to paint everything and learn French! And wanting Josh to be more than fictional, because HOLY ATTRACTIVE MALE.
I fell in love with every facet of this novel, and I recommend it WHOLEHEARTEDLY to EVERY HUMAN!
