Summary: 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.
My Review: I love every book in the Anna and the French Kiss series. Some more than others. *cough* Anna and the French Kiss *cough*. That will forever be my favorite contemporary novel. Every time I’ve got a book hangover, I go to this series. And now I’ve got a third I can go to as well.
I’ve seen people who love this and then some who are not so impressed. I don’t understand the latter since I’m in love with Isla and Josh, but hey, not everyone is going to like it. I like it enough for the both of us.
Every single time something cute happened between the two, which was every scene except toward the end, I was squealy, giggly, and just plain happy. Some of the scenes I had to put the book down and just give myself a second to process the cuteness before picking it up again. There was a lot of fangirling going on while I read this, lemme tell ya.
Like I said, toward the end it wasn’t so cute, but that was obviously on purpose. Then it got cute again and everything was okay.
PLUS ANNA AND ÉTIENNE FREAKING ST. CLAIR.
Everyone makes a cameo and it’s so cute and perfect. I love this book. There were problems, but I love it nonetheless. So if you’re looking for a cute book that will get you over a book hangover, this is for you. And if you’re not looking for a cute book that will get you over a book hangover, this is for you.
