Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Age Group: YA
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 Étienne St. Claire: 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?
What an amazing and funny book! Not too long ago, I was only into paranormal books, but I began reading chick - lit and I began loving it as well and I'm happy I opened up my interests. Anna and the French Kiss is the book I have been looking for in a long time. Everything about the book was perfect. I synopsis immediatly grabbed my attention and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.
One of my favorite places in the world is Paris (I still have to visit it though haha). Anna moves to a boarding school is Paris and everything afterwards takes off. Every element a good chick - lit book should have, this book had it. It was a true love story and I couldn't tear myself away from reading it. The love between Etienne and Anna was so cute and I could just imagine Entienne's french accent and how adorable it would have been.
The cover was one of my favorite parts of this book. Nothing beats that cover, I mean look at it. The Eifel Tower in the background and Anna and Etienne sitting on a bench in front of it. That to me screams out "AMAZING BOOK WAITING TO BE READ!!"
Overall, if you love chick - lit and Paris, this book is for you!
