Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris - until she meets Etienne St. Clair: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home.

As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near - misses end with the French kiss Anna - and readers - have long awaited?

When I first stumbled across this book, I mistakenly took it as cutesy novel, something I wouldn’t be interested in, but with all the RAVING reviews , I decided to buy a copy and see what all the golly fuss was about. And I am so glad I did! I only wish I had of found this adorable book sooner.

I want to sing from the roof top how bloody brilliant this is. I want to start a group and discuss everything I loved about it. And I wan’t to tell those who haven’t yet read this book, to Run, not jog, but bolt, to your nearest bookstore to get a copy to read...like NOW!
If you STILL need convincing read on to find out everything I loved about Anna and the French Kiss. J
As soon as opened and read the first couple of pages, I already wanted more – more story, more Anna, more Paris, more everything . Within minutes Stephanie Perkins had already managed to put a smile on my dial. ;)
I loved the gang - each and everyone one of them. I became completely invested in the characters and I loved learning about them as they were all so interesting and cool. I liked that the characters were real  - not fake and bolony. Eveyone has faults *gasp* and I am glad that Stephanie Perkins included them in her characters, as I found it easy to relate to the them, and I am sure a lot of other readers did too!
Loved St. Clair – he was swoony-licous

I loved Stephanie Perkins writing style, it was easy to read and. I also loved the way she described Paris, it was beautiful, especially on Anna’s first night out. She made the scene come right off the page and I felt like I was there. It was torture reading about all the delectable, delicious food. My mouth was watering, and it made me want to jump on a plane to Paris to go eat with Anna and St. Clair.
I can’t count the times that this book had me bursting out laughing. :D 
I loved the pacing! There was never a dull moment in this book.

Basically I adored every word, sentence, paragraph, page and chapter. In whole, I loved this book.

Rating 5/5
