IT’S MONDAY, WHAT ARE YOU READING

is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Date where everybody gets to share what they are and about to read during the week.


It’s Monday once more, and I’m so glad to share that I am in my second week of work 🙂 I’ve never worked before, and this is the first firm that I am officially an employee of (wow- employee huh! – sounds so mature!), so I’m really really excited about what’s to come. A tad bit nervous too, heh. 🙂


Current Read:

I am currently reading The Game Plan by Kristen Callihan.  This is the third book in the series Game On. I just finished the first 2 books of the series and what can I say? I. AM. SO.HOOKED. I cannot, for the life of me, go on with my life knowing that I have an unfinished Kristen Callihan series. Therefore, I instantly picked the third book up and devoured it! I’m halfway through and I things are getting well. 🙂 NA forever? NA forever.


Books for the rest of the week: 

I have two books I plan to read  for the rest of the week, but you know me, nothing is ever sure in what I do. Heh.

I have started The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater last month and the slow reader that I am, I still have not finished. Don’t get me wrong, I am not holding back on reading because I am not interested or anything. On the contrary, I am loving each bit of it! The Boys and Blue and the world and the mystery is just everything to me! I cannot believe how long I’ve waited to start this series but I am glad I did last month. 🙂 This is probably one of my first 5-star book of the year! I’m excited! 🙂

I also plan to continue reading A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray since I started it last month but I’m stuck at 50+ pages 😦 Again, it’s nothing short of interesting, and the writing is superb as well. Guess I was just so consumed with my NAs that I was forced to set aside my YAs! 😦 In any case, I’m picking it up again this week and will finish it a a week’s time. 🙂


Anyway, so there’s my little update! Let’s talk about what you guys are reading this week! I can’t wait to know!

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