Is it possible that I'm worthy of being loved by someone whom I love?
- Isla

Isla can be one of the most unexpected contemporary romance I've ever read. It was quick. It is tempting to read how the possibility of falling in love with a guy for more than a year leads into a wonderful, twist-and-turn relationship.

The sudden realization of love and acceptance within these two characters is a total knock out to me. Honest and bold words were written in a splendid manner. 

All throughout Isla, I genuinely thought that everything will go well and fine inspite of the obstacles she will have with Josh. Because from the start, it all feels like a one of a kind chance to be with the guy she likes since freshman year. I almost touched the "Happily Ever After" part, but I was wrong. The heart of the book is something you should definitely watch for. Main reason is that Stephanie Perkins pulled out a panic cord for both characters. 

It's is a genuine page-turner kind of one. I cant help myself to discover how those pages can take me to the relationship of Isla and Josh. In which I am really surprised with the way Stephanie Perkins was able to pull through the ranging emotions with a mix of a pleasurable ending.

I was so in love with the way Josh handled the relationship for Isla. He clings on to the chances and impossibilities just to be with her. And Isla, I am clearly surprised how she made her decisions in life and also with Josh.

One last thing, Ăˆtienne's got a surprise! 

Mark your calendars for Aug. 14, because, yes, theres only one place you need to be - Bookstore. Have a dose of infinite love with Isla and the Happily Ever After. It is genuinely a wonderful and heartwarming ending.
