Three Great Romances by One Amazing Author!!! April 9, 2015

Filed under: Humor,Realistic Fiction/ Contemporary Fiction,Romance — lpitrak @ 7:12 pm

Stephanie Perkins is the author of three awesome romances.  Each one features a different girl (Anna, Lola, and Isla) whose lives overlap and intersect throughout the series. Anna, a down-to-earth beauty with a passion for film, finds love for the first time while studying abroad in Paris… but the interest of her affection has a long-time girlfriend!!!  Lola, a vibrant, experimental budding fashion designer, is happy with her musician boyfriend, until the childhood crush who broke her heart moves back in next door.  Finally, Isla, brilliant, shy, with a love for graphic novels, realizes the guy she has been crushing on since freshman year likes her too… but can she understand that he finds her as fascinating as she finds him?  I love this series so much, because each of the girls has a totally distinct personality, sense of humor, and quirks.  And so do the guys they fall for!!  Happy endings are there for everyone, but they happen realistically and characters have to work for them. Great for anyone who loves romantic comedies and smart, funny girls!!!
