Anna and the French Kiss
Author: Stephanie Perkins
Publisher: Usborne Publishing
Genres: Young Adult, Romance, Contemporary
Anna has everything figured out – she was about to start senior year with her best friend, she had a great weekend job, and her huge work crush looked as if it might finally be going somewhere… Until her dad decides to send her 4383 miles away to Paris. On her own.
But despite not speaking a word of French, Anna finds herself making new friends, including Etienne, the smart, beautiful boy from the floor above. But he’s taken – and Anna might be too. Will a year of romantic near-missed end with the French kiss she’s been waiting for?
AHH I loved it so freaking much!!!!
It’s so cute so easy to read and it really causes so many feelings!!
I loved the characters, they were amazing, super realistic, super different from each other!
I loved the building of Anna’s and Étienne’s relationship as friends first and cute moments in between and some tough times also. It was nice to see them as more than boyfriend and girlfriend, I loved that they didn’t start dating right away, made it much more interesting.
They had to fight to be together and it was something many people would be able to relate to.
Even the friends’ moments are super relatable, I saw myself a lot in Anna with her friends. Not so much for the “Étienne” part, sigh 😛
I love Stephanie Perkins writing, it’s beautiful and her words all flow so easily that time just flies and you end the book… I loved it, I just don’t know why I didn’t read this before!
!WARNING: SPOILERS ahead!!
Let’s sum up this in two images I found in pinterest, shall we?
So this is Anna and her life…
And this… is Anna’s new life. Meet Étienne St. Claire!
The best sentence in this book was definitely:
For the two of us, home isn’t a place. It’s a person. And we’re finally home.
