As you probably all know, WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Taking On a World of Words where you just have to answer the three W-questions! 🙂 It’s some sort of a quick reading update, so here we go!

The 3 W’s are:

  1. What are you currently reading? 
  2. What did you recently finish reading? 
  3. What do you think you’ll read next?

TBR Takedown 3.0!

Screen Shot 2016-01-01 at 8.38.54 PM

It’s 2016 and I am definitely going to start the year right by participating in another TBR Takedown! 🙂 I pretty much had a successful TBR Takedown 2.0 and I can’t wait to participate once more. I definitely want to seize all the time I have in the month of January before school starts again on its last week! 🙂

This read-a-thon is again hosted by Shannon over at leaning lights, and here’s what y’all need to know if you wanna join in too! 🙂

One thing I really like about the TBR Takedown are the challenges that comes with each day all through out the read-a-thon. They’re not required, but there are perks if you actually do them and send the pictures via Twitter. The information are all in the video above 🙂 Continue reading

BOOK REVIEW: ISLA AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER BY STEPHANIE PERKINS

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

Omygodthisbook! I can’t believe I am giving 5-stars to Isla and the Happily Ever After after my semi-bad, shaky relationship with Anna and Lola. But this one, though, sooo freaking good!!! 

Quick Stats

Title: Isla and the Happily Ever After 
Author: Stephanie Perkins
Date Read: December 4th to 8th 2015
Date Published: August 14th 2014 by Usborne Publishing 
My book format: Physical copy! 🙂 
Goodreads blurb:
The café is boiling. The atmosphere is clouded with bittersweet coffee.
Three years of desire rip through my body and burst from my lips: “Josh!”
His head jolts up. For a long time, a very long time, he just stares at me.
And then…he blinks. “Isla?”

Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on brooding artist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And, after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer break, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to face uncertainty about their futures, and the very real possibility of being apart.

Set against the stunning backdrops of New York, Paris and Barcelona, this is a gorgeous, heart-wrenching and irresistible story of true love, and the perfect conclusion to Stephanie Perkins’s beloved series.

My thoughts
Honestly, I quite had very low expectations getting into this one, because, as I said, I quite had a rough relationship with Anna and Lola, giving them both a 3.5 in Goodreads. I mean, I did not hate them, but it wasn’t as moving and as engrossing and they were just okay for me. However, I knew I had to complete the collection and get Isla’s story, because, duh, I can’t have a bookshelf without the green book in Stephanie Perkins’ companion series. So long story short, I got the third book just for the heck of it.  Continue reading
