Summary (goodreads.com): 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?
I read this ages ago, but I’m having the hardest time thinking of something to write about it other than BEST BOOK EVER, READ IT NOW! It seems that the more I love a book the less I have to write about it because I’m afraid I will give something big away. So maybe it’s a good thing I plan to keep this review on the shorter side.
Everything about Anna and the French Kiss is perfectly executed. I loved every single character and every scene was written beautifully. I felt like I was in Paris with St. Claire (I wish). I just loved this book. It's really funny and romantic and it's also quotable, if that makes sense. Before I had read this book I read a ton of reviews like I always do and I haven’t read a single word against it. Anna was the talk of the blogosphere, but upon reading the summary on goodreads I couldn’t figure out why. After I read Anna I knew why, but I still can't really explain why.
Let me just say that every single person on the planet should read Anna and the French Kiss. Oh and that I want Stephanie Perkins’ hair (that blue stripe is Awesome)!
