#151 - "Anna and the French Kiss" by Stephanie Perkins

Title: Anna and the French Kiss

Author: Stephanie Perkins

Book read on November 28th, 2011!

My rating: 5 of 5

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?

 My thoughts on the book:
Okay, this was one of the most praised books in the last year & now I know why. This is probably the 2nd best ya contemporary romance I've ever read. First, the setting. I've never been to Paris, but the way it was described by the author, it was like I was seeing it before my eyes. So, the writing style - amazing! Now for the characters. My favourite character was of course Etienne St. Clair. He really is entirely irresistible. I also liked Anna's character a lot. The chemistry between them from the beginning was great & I enjoyed every second of it. The secondary characters were likable, too. As the story developed, I became more & more interested in Josh & I'm happy he'll get his own happily ever after with Isla, which I really can't wait & it will be in Paris again, yay! Anyway, back to Anna and the French Kiss. I don't want to go into details, but it's lots of fun, with sizzling chemistry & great friendship between the main characters & most of the time I had a smile plasted on my face while I was reading it & I couldn't put it down, so I highly recommend it!
