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

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Pg. 81 Update : “You know that I like you. Right?’…… Pure Stephanie Perkins swoon <3"

Pg. 173 Update: Isla & Josh, Josh & Isla….. I don't need anything else but these two

Book Finished Update: I literally have tears running down my cheeks right now, my heart is bursting from the love in this book.
Everything about it is beautiful, the romance, the friendships, the love and the heartbreak.
And it was lovely to reconnect with some special people, St. Clair, Anna, Cricket and Lola – hello, looks like I am going to be doing some re-reading!

A perfect happily ever after.

Not That Kind Of GirlNot That Kind Of Girl by Siobhan Vivian
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Not that kind of girl was a quick and easy book to read. It was a great story of life in high school, with the focus on girls, and how hard it is sometimes to be the person you really are. There are a lot of challenges in high school – to be in with the right group, to have the right friends, to have the right boyfriend, to get good grades, to please your parents… it is all really hard. The main characted in this book, Natalie – well to start with I liked her. Then I found her annoying. Then I liked her again. Then I found her really annoying and wondered why anyone would want to be friends with her. Then I felt sorry for her (and I might have found her annoying again before the end of the book) and in the end, I did like her. I think she was so scared of not being in control, that she closed herself off and didn’t let herself discover, who she really was.

And I can’t finish off without saying, there was, of course, a little bit of swoonworthiness in this story too!

Pg. 317, “I realized then, and would have to keep realizing in all the years to come:

It didn’t matter if I was the kind of girl who had sex, or the kind of girl who had her portrait on a wall in the library, or the kind of girl who got into the best college, or the kind of girl who didn’t tell her parents everything, or the kind of girl who teachers loved. I just needed to be okay with all the kinds of girl I was”
