After I recently reread "Anna and the French kiss" and "Lola and the boy next door" by Stephanie Perkins, I was in the mood to take some pictures of both books. Here they are.
Anna and the French Kiss
I did a review on "Anna and the French kiss" back when I first read the book, and my fascination with the story and my love for the characters has deepened since that first date with Anna and her friends. I just love this book and rereading it made me so happy.
The last sentences of the book are beautiful and fit perfectly to Anna and Étienne.
Because I was right. For the two of us, home isn't a place.
It's a person.
And we are finally home.
Lola and the boy next door
When I first read about Lola, her family and the special boy from next door, I was a bit disappointed. In hindsight I realize that I expected too much of the book. When I reread Lola a few days ago, I was charmed by the story and enjoyed the book a lot. Sometimes giving a book a second chance is a smart idea.
The last sentence in "Lola and the boy next door" is one that gives the book a perfect and happy ending.
And I hold my head high toward my big entrance, hand in handwith the boy who gave me the moon and the stars.
