This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. This list is not entirely fair because it makes me want to pack up my bags and head out on vacation IMMEDIATELY. And I’m not going anywhere until November. *sobs forever* Bring on the Wanderlust 1. Just One Day by Gayle Forman: This book WHICH I AM STILL PRETENDING IS A STANDALONE was pretty much perfect. You see parts of London and a ton of Paris with a side of a tiny bit of Holland, all as a beautifully fleshed out backdrop to an amazing character […]

Music Match-Up #7: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Music Match-Up #7: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Every once in a while, I come across a song that fits perfectly with a book I’ve read. In this new feature, I’ll tell you about them! Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins Welcome to what is unexpectedly becoming “Stephanie Perkins Week” on Snuggly Oranges. *cough* Anyway, who of you does not know about Anna and the French Kiss? Probably no one, right? And most of you have read it. I’ve actually read it twice – most recently a couple weeks ago to get me ready to binge the rest of the Stephanie Perkins books and it was just as fluffy and fantastic […]

Book Review: Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

Book Review: Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

Have you ever had a book give you butterflies? I have, and that book was Isla and the Happily Ever After. By far my favorite of Stephanie Perkins’ books, Isla is dripping with chemistry, happiness, and love. I can’t even describe just how happy this book made me. It is fluffy romantic perfection. Right from the start, I knew this book and I were golden. I had recently reread Anna and the French Kiss, so I remembered seeing Isla fawn over Josh from afar, and in essence I already shipped it. Isla’s voice is so freaking wonderful. She’s a bit nervous, a bit insecure, and […]

Book Review: Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

Book Review: Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

With Isla and the Happily Ever After selected as our October book club book, I finally got around to reading Lola and the Boy Next Door. Cute? Definitely. Swoony? A little. Enjoyable and refreshing? Hell yes. Stephanie Perkins is the place to be for wonderful contemporary romances. What stands out most about Lola and the Boy Next Door is its main character. Lola is quite the quirky little character. She reminded me of Jeane from Adorkable, in that she marches to the beat of her own drum. The crazier the fashion, the better. In fact, she designs her own clothes, which is super awesome. Crazy […]

Book Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Writing this review may be one of the hardest things in the world because… how do you gush and still sound original when the whole rest of the world has read and loved this book? Their reviews are no doubt much more eloquent than mine. The solution? GIFS. Basically, the following is the result of reading this book: This book is straight up romance but it is of the highest quality and hard to resist. Slow build up? Check. Swoon-worthy boy? MEGA check. Get me an Étienne… NOW! Irresistibly adorable dialogue? Check. A romance that develops from the best kind of pure-hearted friendship? Check. If […]
