SOMETHING REALLY FUN IS HAPPENING!

HI HI HI I’m so excited to finally reveal something that fellow bookworms Judith, Andi, Lindsey, Meg and I have been working on for a couple months!

A STEPHANIE PERKINS READALONG!!!!

islaiscoming

 

Made by the talented Meg

That’s right. We will be re-reading (or reading for the first time for some of you) Anna and Lola and then, altogether as a community, read Isla during release week!! It’s more fun together!! I have actually been lucky enough to read Isla already and I WISH I would have reread because there are so many great little details (not necessary to understand Isla but great for fans).  If you don’t know who Stephanie Perkins is…you should should join along with us if you like YA romances that are sweet and will make you swoon!

Lola and the Boy Next Door
Isla and the Happily Ever After

Take a look at our game plan:

readathonc/o the lovely Andi because I was too lazy to make my own when hers was so nice!

During each week, when the readalong is happening, we will be having some celebration posts and giveaways (blog tour kind of things) on the blogs of other Stephanie Perkins super fans! We will have a list of those happenings on each book’s kickoff post for the week.

You don’t have to do anything to join! Just join! No requirements. Just a chill readalong with lots of fun and shenanigans! We’d love if you’d tweet about it (we are using #ISLAISCOMING), write a post about/add it to any weekly recap you do and just tell your friends…but no pressure!!

We’ll have a linky below for you to add your name to if you plan to try to read along with us. It doesn’t mean you HAVE to..just that you are going to try to! We won’t hunt you down…swear! And if you just want to read one or two…by all means!

We hope you’ll enjoy the fun of reliving Anna and Lola or discovering it for the first time and experiencing Isla together when it comes out!!

  1. Sounds like fun. I’ve read the first but not the second. Good opportunity to revisit 🙂

  2. OMG SO EXCITING!!!!! Stephanie Perkins is beyond amazing, I’ve been rereading and rereading Lola so many times because Cricket <333333 Reading her books make me so happy I just can't even describe. The best pick me ups ever, and definitely a tour de force of cutesy contemporary. Can't wait for Isla and this readalong, thank you for oragnizing it! :))

  3. Just tweeted about this! Stephanie is one of my favourite YA authors so of course I’ll be joining in! Sounds like so much fun 🙂

    Oooh, this is perfect timing for me, I just bought Anna and the French Kiss the other day. Also, I’ve been thinking about starting a blog myself to get better at writing, so provided I can think of a name, I might use this as an excuse to finally go ahead and start one.

  5. Yay, this sounds like so much fun! I love love Anna and Lola and it’s been a while since i’ve read them, so i’m more than overdue for a re-read! Thanks for doing this!

  6. Oooh, this sounds like so much fun! I’ve been wanting to read Anna and Lola but haven’t yet, so this is a good opportunity! I’ll just have to make sure I can get my hands on copies of each in time before I sign up.
    (Also: Oh myyy, those covers! And that readalong graphic is just plain gooorgeous)

  7. I was already planning to re-read on my own, but this will be even more fun! 🙂

  8. I’m going to try. I’m going to try so hard! But I’ll be out of town for Isla so I din’t know how I’ll do…

  9. I’d quite like to do this! It’ll be my third time reading Anna and second time reading Lola… can’t wait for Isla!

  10. This is absolutely perfect! I remember the Love-A-Thon way back in February when I discovered I wasn’t the only person who had yet to read Stephanie Perkins’s books, so a group of us wanted to read the books and now we can! I am so incredibly excited for this- Anna and the French Kiss takes place in Paris and I completely adore the setting, and I’ve heard these are really happy, wonderful books. I am so excited about this!!

  11. Thank you for this! I’ve been wanting to reread them, but I’m so lazy that I wouldn’t do it myself 😉 Can’t wait for all the celebrations and happiness! Though I won’t get my copy of Isla till the 18th or 20th, so I may have to just be late on that one 🙁 But I’ll flail on the backend 😉

  12. You already know that I’m SUPER excited about this read-along! I think you ladies came up with a great idea, and can’t wait to join all of you for it 🙂

  13. I’m so excited about this! I re-read Anna and Lola not too long ago and won’t have time to do it again before Isla is released, but I’m definitely in for the discussions and other fun. Those are two of my all-time favorite YA contemporaries. I’ll be more than happy to squee along with everyone else for Isla though. 🙂

  14. I’ve been wanting to read these books but haven’t gotten around to them yet. Maybe this will be the kick I need to get started.

  15. Joining! :D:D
