The Weekend Aesthetic is a new feature where I post book aesthetics every weekend. They might be of a book I’m currently reading or recently read or read a long time ago or one I consider to be a favorite of mine—there’s no rhyme or reason to it! For now I just want to keep it simple and feature all different kinds of books (but there might be themes in the future).
For my fifth Weekend Aesthetic, I’m featuring Stephanie Perkins’s Lola and the Boy Next Door. Some of the very first YA contemporary romances I read were Stephanie Perkins’s books, so I am so excited about featuring an aesthetic of my favorite book of hers. In case you missed it, last year I took a tour of San Francisco as Lola, which is one of the most fun blog posts I’ve created!

Budding designer Lola Nolan doesn’t believe in fashion… she believes in costume. The more expressive the outfit — more sparkly, more fun, more wild — the better. But even though Lola’s style is outrageous, she’s a devoted daughter and friend with some big plans for the future. And everything is pretty perfect (right down to her hot rocker boyfriend) until the dreaded Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket, return to the neighborhood.
When Cricket — a gifted inventor — steps out from his twin sister’s shadow and back into Lola’s life, she must finally reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door.
What do you think of this weekend’s aesthetic? Have you read Lola and the Boy Next Door?
