Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins.

The blurb:

6936382

 

  Anna was 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. So she's less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris—until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all . . . including a serious girlfriend.
  But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss? Stephanie Perkins keeps the romantic tension crackling and the attraction high in a debut guaranteed to make toes tingle and hearts melt.

The review:

Oh mon Dieu!! Where was this book all this time?? I chose this book to be my first contemporary read and my break from Vampire novels, and thank God I chose it! It’s simply so great :).

Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down at all!! I had to finish it and I feel sad that there’s no sequel :’). This book is forty-seven chapters of goodness. The main reason for me loving Anna and the French Kiss is the way Stephanie wrote it, it was fun to read with 80% of funny moments between friends and normal situations.

I don’t have a favorite character, I love them all!!! Except for Toph…. Anna was a typical girl and it was nice to read about a girl who acted like any other average girl her age :). As for Etienne St. Claire, no need to comment on him!!!

Conclusion:

This book is a recommended read for any YA/Contemporary novel fans who like a lot of laughter and normal situations with a great writing style.

 

5/5
