Review: Anna and the French Kiss

Book: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Pages: 372 Pages
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile
Release Date: December 2, 2010
Source: Bought
Grade: 5/5 Stars
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 √Čtienne 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?
My Thoughts:
I LOVED THIS BOOK. I remember last year seeing all the pretty reviews for it and I can’t believe I didn’t get it when it came out!

I’m kind of in love with France so it was cool having all the French foods and places appear in the book. It made it seem like I was the one going to a boarding school in France.

Anna was a great character and I loved how I could relate to her so much. Her friendship with Etienne also amazed me. It actually felt like friendship and I could feel their frustrations once their love feelings developed. I think this is the first book I’ve read in awhile that I could say I would read over and over again.

Stephanie Perkins is an amazing writer. The way she projected the feelings and events was brilliant. I loved how she made everything seem so real. I seriously couldn’t stop reading!

Anna and the French Kiss is definitely a book you should go and get. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Grade: 5/5 Stars
