Sneak Peek: Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

Expected Publication: August 14, 2014

This five-chapter sneak peek was provided by the publisher via Netgalley. Before anything else, I just need to say that I walked into this book blindly. I haven’t read anything from Stephanie Perkins before so everything was new to me, not that I minded it. I can say that she has the potential to being my new favorite Chick Lit author.

The language and writing was as light as can be, as books like this are meant to be. I think Isla personifies what most girls turn into when faced with their crush, which was pretty funny. She just completely turns to jelly when Josh is there. And Josh—he’s the mysterious artist, the aloof and brooding kind, the kind of guys that get my attention in real life. I’m truly fascinated by his character. He reminds me of my high school crushes. The sneak peek ended so quickly it kinda made me itching for more—which I suppose was the purpose of this teaser. I can say that I’m looking forward to reading the whole book!
