Impressions: Anna and Lola

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 hand
with the boy who gave me the moon and the stars.


  1. I loved both of these to pieces!! And I really like your book pictures idea :-D

    1. Thanks! I can't wait for Isla's book, it has to be a great one.

  2. This is a cute post! I liked these two books.

  3. Wonderful post! I love the fotos!
    I will reread Anna soon and then finally read Lola!! :) Also looking forward for the third book about Isla! Stephanie Perkins really is a great author!

    Have a great weekend! :)

    1. Isla sounded so far so nice and I can't wait to find out more about her

  4. This makes me want to reread "Anna and the French Kiss" right away and maybe I'll do the same as you and try "Lola and the Boy Next Door" once more as well. Now I know what to expect, so maybe it'll work for me too.

    Right now I'm givin Susan Elizabeth Phillips another chance by reading "Match Me If You Can", but once I've finished that I think I'll definitely have to reread "Anna". :]

    Such a cute post!

    1. Hope you will enjoy MMIYC, it's a book by SEP I love. I also love "Natural Born Charmer" but unfortunately none of the books that came after it.
      And rereading Anna is always a great idea. :)

  5. I love your photos. They are great! :)
