Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was proposed to in Paris, so Paris holds a special place in my heart and I tend to agree (yes, I’m partial) that it is one of the most romantic cities in the world. With that disclaimer out of the way, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
Anna was totally relatable as a teen who is uprooted her senior year and whisked away to boarding school in a country where she doesn’t even speak the language. The story spans her senior year and I can’t say there was ever a dull moment in the book. I really loved her group of friends and the romantic angst between her and St. Clair was just about perfect. The author did a great job of capturing Paris, so the reader could visualize the sights, sounds and even tastes. Crepes with Nutella – Uhm yeah! One of my favorite memories of Paris, relieved through Anna’s eyes and stomach. 🙂 I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romance.
Why can’t I give half stars in Goodreads, because I really want to give it 4.5 stars?!?!
