Shoot That Book: Lola and the Boy Next Door

Shoot That Book combines my passion for books and my tendency to become trigger happy with a camera. My lack of photography skills is compensated by my enthusiasm. Basically, I like taking pictures of books.

I have been anticipating the release of Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins ever since I read Anna and the French Kiss last year. I was so excited when it finally came in the mail today! It shouldn’t be surprising that I took pictures and decided to feature it in today’s Shoot That Book post. What can I say, I think Stephanie Perkins’ covers are cute. I like the designs of the spines and how they represent the locations of the books.

I also like that the couple in both books have their hands near each other but still not quite touching. I wonder if the same will be pictured in the third companion novel?

I’m currently in the middle of another book but I can’t wait to finish it so I can start on Lola!

  1. File this under: books everyone loves which I STILL have to get to. One day, seriously.

    And good catch: the hands almost touching thing is something I didn’t notice. It is rather cute!

    • It’s actually a good thing that you haven’t read Anna yet! You won’t be affected by all the hype last year and you don’t have to wait for the companion novel.

      I only noticed it after trying to figure out different angles for the photos – I didn’t want the usual that just shows the front cover.

  2. My favorite part of the dust jacket is the spine – I love how vibrant the colors are.

    I’ve finished reading it already and will be re-reading some parts of it later. I hope you get to read it soon!:)

    • I love the colors of the spine and the cover as a whole. Even the back looks cute. I want to find a nail polish that matches the mint green and purple of the cover.

      I started reading it last night and I have a feeling I’ll finish it before the weekend is over. πŸ™‚

  3. Enjoyed Anna & the French Kiss so I can see your excitement for Lola.. Bummer it’s not in my library. Hopefully I’ll get my hands on it ..been hearing wonderful reviews.

    • Of course, I’m reading it already! πŸ˜› I rushed to finish the book that I was in the middle of so I can start on this one. Both books have pretty covers that feel very YA and they do look good shelved together.

Comments are like chocolate. :) Maraming salamat / thank you! I try my best to reply to all the comments on my blog.
