Was my favorite out of the three in the series. I loved it, and would read it over and over again.

Can't believe it took me this long to read Isla!! I missed Stephanie Perkins' words <3 It was fun that there were three different settings in this book as well, and I felt like I was dropped in the middle of each one. So many sensory details! I did find the romance kinda cheesy at times, and fast, but in the end I love Josh and Isla together- they bring out the best in each other and had so many cute moments. I loved the cameos at the end too!

Great ending to a great book series. It was sweet to see Isla's happily ever after, but it was even better to see Anna, Etienne, Cricket, and Lola at the end. Oops, spoilers?

I didn't like this one as much as the first two... maybe because I didn't like Isla but it was still a sweet and silly little YA romance with plenty of the quirk that makes Perkins so enjoyable.

Isla and the happily ever after is a teen fictional and romantic novel written by Stephan Perking. It is the last book of Anna and the French kiss series.
Unlike her previous novels the focus is on Isla and Josh relationship. Stephanie Perkins filled my heart with so much love for Isla and Josh. I cannot believe the trilogy is over when I turned the final page of Isla and The Happily Ever After. I adored every single one of the books in the trilogy and it’s really difficult to say goodbye to the characters.
If you have been following the series, Isla Martin was first introduced in Anna and The French Kiss. Isla is a shy and quite girl who had a huge crush on a creative cartoonist Josh from her first year of high school in France. As they become aware of each other’s feelings they have to face the challenges every young couple must face, including the family drama.
Should Isla and Josh be together? It’s something you’ll be wondering throughout the story. At times, their relationship is adorable, sweet, and you can’t help feel that their teenager Dom is restricting them from being in a proper relationship. Isla reminds you what it’s like to be a teenager and not have that luxury. But at other times, I couldn’t help but wonder whether it was so intense that Josh and Isla were actually in a toxic relationship, like those couples who couldn’t keep away from each other at university, but now are no longer together while the ones who could quite happily not call each other every single day are still together.
Get ready to be taken on magical ride with Stephanie Perking new book Isla and happily ever after. This book will not disappoint you but will make u fall in love with each and every word of it. It will flatter your heart making you believe that true love does exist. It will make you feel as if you are in that situation and you are falling in love. I would highly recommend this book to people who believe in love and enjoy reading stories about it. It sums up the entire trilogy with the perfect ending and fans of Stephanie Perkins will rejoice and celebrate this immensely captivating trilogy.

not as good as Stephanie's other books

This is the last book in a trilogy, and it does share some similarities with the first two novels. There are relationships almost ruined by misunderstandings and hurt feelings, beautiful urban settings, and a quirky cast of characters. Isla has dreamed about dating Josh since their first year at a boarding school in Paris. After a chance meeting in a café, of course named Kismet, they begin a rocky relationship. Both Isla and Josh change as their relationship grows. Isla’s friendship with Kurt is one of the best parts of the book because it’s rare to find true platonic friendships in YA novels. There are cameo appearances by characters from the other books in the trilogy, including Anna, Etienne, Cricket, Lola, and Calliope from the second.

Honestly, being the third book, it got a bit repetitive. I loved the comeos from the characters from the previous books, it was really interesting to see all these characters connect.

Not quite as good as Anna or Lola, but still a very cute ending to the series.
