Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins Book Review


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?


Last Friday, I got the chance to meet Stephanie Perkins (which was so cool!) at a book signing and I was able to get a copy of both
Anna and The French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door signed.Anyways, I ended up deciding to re-read Anna and The French Kiss and I am so incredibly happy I did!

This book was both funnier and even cuter the second time I read it (if that’s even possible :D) Anna is such an amazing main character and St.Clair, well, is amazing....*sighs dreamily*. The plot is so intense and I found myself rooting for Anna and St.Clair every single step of the way. Anna was really relatable to me and the whole story actually seemed pretty realistic, like it could happen.

The writing style is also so great. I found myself laughing at different lines and going aww at others.  The thing that I really liked about this book was how everything that happens makes perfect sense, and the characters all build up their relationships over time. From Anna’s love for movies to St.Clair’s hair (that rhymes ;), everything about this book was so cute and original. I’d give it five out of five flowers.

Teasers:
“Boys turns girls into such idiots.” 
“I mean, really. Who sends their kid to boarding school? It's so Hogwarts. Only mine doesn't have cute boy wizards or magic candy or flying lessons.” 
“Madame Guillotine gets mad at me. Not because I told them to shove it, but because I didn’t say it in French. What is wrong with this school?”
“Har. Bloody. Har."
He smiles. "Oh, I see. Known me less than a day and teasing me about my accent. What's next? Care to discuss the state of my hair? My height? My trousers?"
"Trousers. Honestly.”

  4. I just started reading this book this morning! It has been a fast read and intriguing every page so far. I am already falling head over heels for St. Clair, but I'm worried that she might ruin her friendship with Mer if she pursues anything with him. I love English talk "mum, bloat and (an new one)pants". I can't wait to finish!
