    Oh, gosh. I really cannot understand all the good reviews for this book (even if half of them were given BEFORE the book actually came out, which, if you ask me, is completely stupid). To say it's overrated is an understatement. This book is such a huge disappointment. I guess this...

    Here's the thing. I think Stephanie Perkins is in my head. Or at least my daydreams. How else could she consistently write characters that seem to be tailor-made to hit my flutter buttons? Etienne for my anglophilia, Max for my tattooed, Buddy Holly glasses wearing (view spoiler)[messe...

    Did you read Anna and the French Kiss?: A.YES, I loved it! B.YES, it was okay. C.YES, and I didn?t like it. D.NO, but I intend to. E.NO, it?s not for me. If you picked A, B, or D, please proceed to review #1. If you picked C or E, please proceed to review #2. ___________...

    Set to "Copacabana" by Barry Manilow. Her name is Lo-la. She's a steal-the-show girl. With purple stripeys in her hair, wearing leggings worthy of Cher. She's friends with Etienne, and of course, with An-na. The boy next door draws on his hand, and Lola yearns to understand. Acr...

    I'm definitely going to burn in hell.. Oh, that awkward moment when everybody loves a book and you don't understand why... You know that feeling, right? Well, yeah, I'm pretty much living it. It's not that I DIDN'T LIKE the book, it's just that I didn't LIKE it.. Does it make ...

    The thing about Lola and the boy next door is that, since it's a companion book, it's inevitable to make a comparison with Anna and the French Kiss which, in this case, comes out as a disadvantage because, as far as I am concerned, Anna is the absolute winner. Lola is a really cute ...

    Yay for warm fuzzies. Stephanie Perkins has a talent and that talent is for making me happy, allowing me to enjoy the entire reading experience, laugh at times and come away with no deep sense of revelation - just the knowledge that I will have to get my hands on whatever she writ...

    I don't know how I am going to justify this rating. Books like Lola and the Boy Next Door rarely work for me. I dislike chick-lit, I dislike two-timing/emotionally cheating/lying heroines, I dislike when the "wrong" guy in books with love triangles is vilified at the last minute to mak...

    One thing I have to appreciate about this story is its glaring reminder that is to NEVER EVER ENTER A SERIOUS RELATIONSHIP WHEN YOU?RE UNSURE OF YOURSELF and I know age isn?t always an indication of a person?s maturity but in this case and it?s most often, sixteen year olds...

    I first read this book in May of 2013, and fell in love with Lola and Cricket's story. For some reason, I never wrote out a proper review for it though (although I do have reviews for Anna and the French Kiss and Isla and the Happily Ever After) I just finished my first reread of th...

    You know how all you Harry Potter fans were, like, living for the release of the seventh book, and then how some were disappointed in it? Lola was my disappointing Deathly Hallows. You see, Anna and I, we hit it off. She smacked me in the face when I needed a slap, she caressed my ...

    No. NO. NO. JUST NO. This book is a mess. If you loved this book, then you might not want to read this review. Because I'm so annoyed right now. And my review will probably sound harsh to you. But I gotta let out all my anger. Let me just start by saying that I loved Anna and the Fr...

    Well that was all sorts of adorable AND obnoxious. Mmmk positive things first. Stephanie Perkins writes characters and worlds that feel totally realistic and I really couldn't put this book down. I loved the side characters like Lola's dads (and even Calliope's whole ice skating th...

    FOUR POINT FIVE STARS Two years ago I remember reading the first book in this series and enjoying it. So, when I was looking through the library's audios and saw this one I thought, 'why not.' First off, I liked this one more than the first book. I know it's been two years since ...

    Lola viste extravagante y tiene una vida única: padres gays, madre alcohólica y sin hogar, mejor amiga que se cree Charlock Holmes, un novio rockero y un vecino que acaba de mudarse nuevamente a la casa de al lado con el cual tiene tema pendiente. Aparecen Anna y St. Clair, quien...

    Oh. My. God. What a perfect little book! I wasn't expecting to love it so much. I enjoyed 'Anna and the French Kiss' but this one was on a whole other level. So good! I've been in the mood for fluffy contemporaries and this was perfect. I'll definitely read it again in the future when ...

    3.5 stars This book is exactly how I expected it to be. Light, meh main character, and predictable. The main thing I love about this is Stephanie Perkins is just a great writer. She writes contemporary romances so well and I really find it enjoyable to read. I knew going into this t...

    first read: September 21 - 22, 2015 first reread: March 8 - 12 , 2016 MARCH 2016: I loved it just as much the 2nd time around!!! ------ SEPTEMBER 2015: Totally loving these books! I think overall, I liked Anna's story better....but I definitely found more things that I could re...

    That's it I'm done. DNFing this one. I honestly can't bear to read one more page. Can someone please explain the hype to me? Usually when I dislike a popular book I can tell why everyone else loved but with this one I have absolutely no clue. ? I didn't like any of the ...

    Lola and the Boy Next Door was a clumsy fumble for Stephanie Perkins. It had the potential to be something much better, but got bogged down with Anna's history and Isla's future. I often wondered how much of Lola was planned while Anna and the French Kiss was being written and how much...

    No. NO. NO. JUST NO. This book is a mess. If you loved this book, then you might not want to read this review. Because I'm so annoyed right now. And my review will probably sound harsh to you. But I gotta let out all my anger. Let me just start by saying that I loved Anna and the Fr...

    Oh. My. God. What a perfect little book! I wasn't expecting to love it so much. I enjoyed 'Anna and the French Kiss' but this one was on a whole other level. So good! I've been in the mood for fluffy contemporaries and this was perfect. I'll definitely read it again in the future when ...

    That's it I'm done. DNFing this one. I honestly can't bear to read one more page. Can someone please explain the hype to me? Usually when I dislike a popular book I can tell why everyone else loved but with this one I have absolutely no clue. ? I didn't like any of the ...

    Lola and the Boy Next Door was a clumsy fumble for Stephanie Perkins. It had the potential to be something much better, but got bogged down with Anna's history and Isla's future. I often wondered how much of Lola was planned while Anna and the French Kiss was being written and how much...

    I first read this book in May of 2013, and fell in love with Lola and Cricket's story. For some reason, I never wrote out a proper review for it though (although I do have reviews for Anna and the French Kiss and Isla and the Happily Ever After) I just finished my first reread of th...

    First off, a huge thanks to Rebecca for giving me this ARC. Thank you!! ? ? ? ABSOLUTELY CRUSH-WORTHY? ? ? HOLY CRICKET!! I am absolutely in love with Lola and the Boy Next Door! I?m not denying it, I have a HUGE crush on this book and it?s not going away. Stepha...

    You know how all you Harry Potter fans were, like, living for the release of the seventh book, and then how some were disappointed in it? Lola was my disappointing Deathly Hallows. You see, Anna and I, we hit it off. She smacked me in the face when I needed a slap, she caressed my ...

    No. NO. NO. JUST NO. This book is a mess. If you loved this book, then you might not want to read this review. Because I'm so annoyed right now. And my review will probably sound harsh to you. But I gotta let out all my anger. Let me just start by saying that I loved Anna and the Fr...

    Oh, gosh. I really cannot understand all the good reviews for this book (even if half of them were given BEFORE the book actually came out, which, if you ask me, is completely stupid). To say it's overrated is an understatement. This book is such a huge disappointment. I guess this...

    Here's the thing. I think Stephanie Perkins is in my head. Or at least my daydreams. How else could she consistently write characters that seem to be tailor-made to hit my flutter buttons? Etienne for my anglophilia, Max for my tattooed, Buddy Holly glasses wearing (view spoiler)[messe...

    Did you read Anna and the French Kiss?: A.YES, I loved it! B.YES, it was okay. C.YES, and I didn?t like it. D.NO, but I intend to. E.NO, it?s not for me. If you picked A, B, or D, please proceed to review #1. If you picked C or E, please proceed to review #2. ___________...

    Set to "Copacabana" by Barry Manilow. Her name is Lo-la. She's a steal-the-show girl. With purple stripeys in her hair, wearing leggings worthy of Cher. She's friends with Etienne, and of course, with An-na. The boy next door draws on his hand, and Lola yearns to understand. Acr...

    I'm definitely going to burn in hell.. Oh, that awkward moment when everybody loves a book and you don't understand why... You know that feeling, right? Well, yeah, I'm pretty much living it. It's not that I DIDN'T LIKE the book, it's just that I didn't LIKE it.. Does it make ...

    The thing about Lola and the boy next door is that, since it's a companion book, it's inevitable to make a comparison with Anna and the French Kiss which, in this case, comes out as a disadvantage because, as far as I am concerned, Anna is the absolute winner. Lola is a really cute ...

    Lola and the Boy Next Door was a clumsy fumble for Stephanie Perkins. It had the potential to be something much better, but got bogged down with Anna's history and Isla's future. I often wondered how much of Lola was planned while Anna and the French Kiss was being written and how much...

    Oh, gosh. I really cannot understand all the good reviews for this book (even if half of them were given BEFORE the book actually came out, which, if you ask me, is completely stupid). To say it's overrated is an understatement. This book is such a huge disappointment. I guess this...

    Here's the thing. I think Stephanie Perkins is in my head. Or at least my daydreams. How else could she consistently write characters that seem to be tailor-made to hit my flutter buttons? Etienne for my anglophilia, Max for my tattooed, Buddy Holly glasses wearing (view spoiler)[messe...

    Did you read Anna and the French Kiss?: A.YES, I loved it! B.YES, it was okay. C.YES, and I didn?t like it. D.NO, but I intend to. E.NO, it?s not for me. If you picked A, B, or D, please proceed to review #1. If you picked C or E, please proceed to review #2. ___________...

    Set to "Copacabana" by Barry Manilow. Her name is Lo-la. She's a steal-the-show girl. With purple stripeys in her hair, wearing leggings worthy of Cher. She's friends with Etienne, and of course, with An-na. The boy next door draws on his hand, and Lola yearns to understand. Acr...

    I'm definitely going to burn in hell.. Oh, that awkward moment when everybody loves a book and you don't understand why... You know that feeling, right? Well, yeah, I'm pretty much living it. It's not that I DIDN'T LIKE the book, it's just that I didn't LIKE it.. Does it make ...

    The thing about Lola and the boy next door is that, since it's a companion book, it's inevitable to make a comparison with Anna and the French Kiss which, in this case, comes out as a disadvantage because, as far as I am concerned, Anna is the absolute winner. Lola is a really cute ...

    Yay for warm fuzzies. Stephanie Perkins has a talent and that talent is for making me happy, allowing me to enjoy the entire reading experience, laugh at times and come away with no deep sense of revelation - just the knowledge that I will have to get my hands on whatever she writ...

    I don't know how I am going to justify this rating. Books like Lola and the Boy Next Door rarely work for me. I dislike chick-lit, I dislike two-timing/emotionally cheating/lying heroines, I dislike when the "wrong" guy in books with love triangles is vilified at the last minute to mak...

    One thing I have to appreciate about this story is its glaring reminder that is to NEVER EVER ENTER A SERIOUS RELATIONSHIP WHEN YOU?RE UNSURE OF YOURSELF and I know age isn?t always an indication of a person?s maturity but in this case and it?s most often, sixteen year olds...

    adorable and wonderful! didn't want to put it down =) ...

    I first read this book in May of 2013, and fell in love with Lola and Cricket's story. For some reason, I never wrote out a proper review for it though (although I do have reviews for Anna and the French Kiss and Isla and the Happily Ever After) I just finished my first reread of th...

    First off, a huge thanks to Rebecca for giving me this ARC. Thank you!! ? ? ? ABSOLUTELY CRUSH-WORTHY? ? ? HOLY CRICKET!! I am absolutely in love with Lola and the Boy Next Door! I?m not denying it, I have a HUGE crush on this book and it?s not going away. Stepha...

    You know how all you Harry Potter fans were, like, living for the release of the seventh book, and then how some were disappointed in it? Lola was my disappointing Deathly Hallows. You see, Anna and I, we hit it off. She smacked me in the face when I needed a slap, she caressed my ...

    No. NO. NO. JUST NO. This book is a mess. If you loved this book, then you might not want to read this review. Because I'm so annoyed right now. And my review will probably sound harsh to you. But I gotta let out all my anger. Let me just start by saying that I loved Anna and the Fr...

    D'AAWWWW, well isn't that just lovely. Initial reactions: 1. GAH, the cuteness OVERWHELMS ME! *faints* 2. Okay. Serious business guys. Love the story. There are more things going on than just the boy next door. Family, figuring out who you really are, and growing up. 3. Writing i...

    Well that was all sorts of adorable AND obnoxious. Mmmk positive things first. Stephanie Perkins writes characters and worlds that feel totally realistic and I really couldn't put this book down. I loved the side characters like Lola's dads (and even Calliope's whole ice skating th...

    ** Favourite YA of 2011 ** OMG! OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG! How the hell am I supposed to review this without seeming sick or desperate?? I have no idea! ?. But I?m going to try! This was AMAZING! I was expecting it to be great, but there was still a part of me cringin...

    ?I know you aren't perfect. But it's a person's imperfections that make them perfect for someone else.? I honestly don?t know why it took me so long to finally read ?Lola and the Boy next Door?. I mean, I read ?Anna and the French Kiss? five years ago and never even t...

    FOUR POINT FIVE STARS Two years ago I remember reading the first book in this series and enjoying it. So, when I was looking through the library's audios and saw this one I thought, 'why not.' First off, I liked this one more than the first book. I know it's been two years since ...

    Lola viste extravagante y tiene una vida única: padres gays, madre alcohólica y sin hogar, mejor amiga que se cree Charlock Holmes, un novio rockero y un vecino que acaba de mudarse nuevamente a la casa de al lado con el cual tiene tema pendiente. Aparecen Anna y St. Clair, quien...

    Oh. My. God. What a perfect little book! I wasn't expecting to love it so much. I enjoyed 'Anna and the French Kiss' but this one was on a whole other level. So good! I've been in the mood for fluffy contemporaries and this was perfect. I'll definitely read it again in the future when ...

    3.5 stars This book is exactly how I expected it to be. Light, meh main character, and predictable. The main thing I love about this is Stephanie Perkins is just a great writer. She writes contemporary romances so well and I really find it enjoyable to read. I knew going into this t...

    first read: September 21 - 22, 2015 first reread: March 8 - 12 , 2016 MARCH 2016: I loved it just as much the 2nd time around!!! ------ SEPTEMBER 2015: Totally loving these books! I think overall, I liked Anna's story better....but I definitely found more things that I could re...

    That's it I'm done. DNFing this one. I honestly can't bear to read one more page. Can someone please explain the hype to me? Usually when I dislike a popular book I can tell why everyone else loved but with this one I have absolutely no clue. ? I didn't like any of the ...

    Lola and the Boy Next Door was a clumsy fumble for Stephanie Perkins. It had the potential to be something much better, but got bogged down with Anna's history and Isla's future. I often wondered how much of Lola was planned while Anna and the French Kiss was being written and how much...

    I read this book in under 24 hours just like I did with Anna. IT WAS SO AMAZING . I WILL REVIEW SOON. The worst part about this book is that I'm done reading it. Seriously. ...

    A bowl full of fun! Stephanie Perkins has not disappointed me yet! Lola and The Boy Next door is about 17 year old Lola (or Dolores, if she's in trouble). She has an older boyfriend, strict parents and a great best friend. Her boyfriend Max is 22, in a band and totally cool. Her dad...

    Después de 3 meses volví a terminar un libro físico. Estoy tan feliz y fue tan tan hermoso. Adore este libro, no sé si me gusto más que Anna and The French Kiss pero lo ame lo ame lo ame. Y Cricket es amor. Reseña completa en Gracias a los Libros. ...

    Oh, gosh. I really cannot understand all the good reviews for this book (even if half of them were given BEFORE the book actually came out, which, if you ask me, is completely stupid). To say it's overrated is an understatement. This book is such a huge disappointment. I guess this...

    Here's the thing. I think Stephanie Perkins is in my head. Or at least my daydreams. How else could she consistently write characters that seem to be tailor-made to hit my flutter buttons? Etienne for my anglophilia, Max for my tattooed, Buddy Holly glasses wearing (view spoiler)[messe...

    Did you read Anna and the French Kiss?: A.YES, I loved it! B.YES, it was okay. C.YES, and I didn?t like it. D.NO, but I intend to. E.NO, it?s not for me. If you picked A, B, or D, please proceed to review #1. If you picked C or E, please proceed to review #2. ___________...

    Set to "Copacabana" by Barry Manilow. Her name is Lo-la. She's a steal-the-show girl. With purple stripeys in her hair, wearing leggings worthy of Cher. She's friends with Etienne, and of course, with An-na. The boy next door draws on his hand, and Lola yearns to understand. Acr...

    I'm definitely going to burn in hell.. Oh, that awkward moment when everybody loves a book and you don't understand why... You know that feeling, right? Well, yeah, I'm pretty much living it. It's not that I DIDN'T LIKE the book, it's just that I didn't LIKE it.. Does it make ...

    The thing about Lola and the boy next door is that, since it's a companion book, it's inevitable to make a comparison with Anna and the French Kiss which, in this case, comes out as a disadvantage because, as far as I am concerned, Anna is the absolute winner. Lola is a really cute ...

    Yay for warm fuzzies. Stephanie Perkins has a talent and that talent is for making me happy, allowing me to enjoy the entire reading experience, laugh at times and come away with no deep sense of revelation - just the knowledge that I will have to get my hands on whatever she writ...

    I don't know how I am going to justify this rating. Books like Lola and the Boy Next Door rarely work for me. I dislike chick-lit, I dislike two-timing/emotionally cheating/lying heroines, I dislike when the "wrong" guy in books with love triangles is vilified at the last minute to mak...

    One thing I have to appreciate about this story is its glaring reminder that is to NEVER EVER ENTER A SERIOUS RELATIONSHIP WHEN YOU?RE UNSURE OF YOURSELF and I know age isn?t always an indication of a person?s maturity but in this case and it?s most often, sixteen year olds...

    adorable and wonderful! didn't want to put it down =) ...

    I first read this book in May of 2013, and fell in love with Lola and Cricket's story. For some reason, I never wrote out a proper review for it though (although I do have reviews for Anna and the French Kiss and Isla and the Happily Ever After) I just finished my first reread of th...

    First off, a huge thanks to Rebecca for giving me this ARC. Thank you!! ? ? ? ABSOLUTELY CRUSH-WORTHY? ? ? HOLY CRICKET!! I am absolutely in love with Lola and the Boy Next Door! I?m not denying it, I have a HUGE crush on this book and it?s not going away. Stepha...

    You know how all you Harry Potter fans were, like, living for the release of the seventh book, and then how some were disappointed in it? Lola was my disappointing Deathly Hallows. You see, Anna and I, we hit it off. She smacked me in the face when I needed a slap, she caressed my ...

    No. NO. NO. JUST NO. This book is a mess. If you loved this book, then you might not want to read this review. Because I'm so annoyed right now. And my review will probably sound harsh to you. But I gotta let out all my anger. Let me just start by saying that I loved Anna and the Fr...

    D'AAWWWW, well isn't that just lovely. Initial reactions: 1. GAH, the cuteness OVERWHELMS ME! *faints* 2. Okay. Serious business guys. Love the story. There are more things going on than just the boy next door. Family, figuring out who you really are, and growing up. 3. Writing i...

    Well that was all sorts of adorable AND obnoxious. Mmmk positive things first. Stephanie Perkins writes characters and worlds that feel totally realistic and I really couldn't put this book down. I loved the side characters like Lola's dads (and even Calliope's whole ice skating th...

    Allah?m en sonunda badboy olmayan bir erkek karakter. ?ükürler olsun ?ükürler olsun ?(^o^)? Kitaba ba?lamadan önce baz? ?üphelerim yok de?ildi. Sonuçta "Kom?u Çocuk" ki biz bu zamana kadar ne kom?u çocuklar? gördük. E haliyle en ba?ta badboy-saf k?z kli?esi ...

    ** Favourite YA of 2011 ** OMG! OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG! How the hell am I supposed to review this without seeming sick or desperate?? I have no idea! ?. But I?m going to try! This was AMAZING! I was expecting it to be great, but there was still a part of me cringin...

    ?I know you aren't perfect. But it's a person's imperfections that make them perfect for someone else.? I honestly don?t know why it took me so long to finally read ?Lola and the Boy next Door?. I mean, I read ?Anna and the French Kiss? five years ago and never even t...

    FOUR POINT FIVE STARS Two years ago I remember reading the first book in this series and enjoying it. So, when I was looking through the library's audios and saw this one I thought, 'why not.' First off, I liked this one more than the first book. I know it's been two years since ...

    Lola viste extravagante y tiene una vida única: padres gays, madre alcohólica y sin hogar, mejor amiga que se cree Charlock Holmes, un novio rockero y un vecino que acaba de mudarse nuevamente a la casa de al lado con el cual tiene tema pendiente. Aparecen Anna y St. Clair, quien...
