Anna and the French Kiss- Stephanie Perkins

Written By: Kellie - Jan• 21•12

Synopsis: 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? -Goodreads

Review: Ahh! Why did I put off reading this book for so long, it’s amazingly adorable! I loved it! I don’t gush very often (and I promise I won’t gush through this whole review) so that should tip you off right there on just how much I enjoyed this book. It was a very cute love story that brings to life a fantasy that I’m sure many of us had (a version of) growing up.

It was hard to agree with Anna on the whole “woe is me, I have to live in Paris” thing, but besides that she was a really easy character to relate to and I found myself rooting for her right away. I also really appreciated that she had a fairly normal social life at her new school. No new girl drama with everyone hating her or worshiping her for no reason. She made some friends that seemed like pretty cool people, still missed her old life and went from there. It was so easy to get lost in her world and imagine living in Paris surrounded by awesome people and a crazy cute boy.

There is no getting around it, the real draw of this book was the romance. The friendship that Anna and St. Clair’s relationship was built off was depicted in a way I could really believe. The initial attraction was obvious, but so was the emotional chemistry. There were mistakes and roadblocks from both of them, but every moment seemed like a natural plot progression. Nothing seemed to be in place just to frustrate me as a reader. Anna’s friends (both in Paris and at home) also had interesting parts to play in shaping Anna’s life and her relationships.

I’ve already started reading the next book by Stephanie Perkins, because I just couldn’t resist. I’ve fallen in love with her characters and her writing style. If you’re a fan of contemporary YA romance, you need to pick up Anna and the French Kiss. It will leave you swooning and browsing websites for flights to Paris.
