Book Review | Anna and the French Kiss

Title: Anna and the French Kiss

Author: Stephanie Perkins

Genre: Contemporary


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. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all…including a serious girlfriend.

But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss?

This was a re-read for me. This is the kind of book that you could read over and over, memorize all the lines and events and everything and never get sick of the cuteness!

I cannot find a fault in this book okay dispute me.

Anna’s character development always gets me, how she goes from this reserved almost non-risk-taker to this confident  kick-ass protagonist that is sure of what she wants. Although the revelation she has about her character is a bit rushed I still like how she actually ends up being better you know.

Etienne, the love interest, oh sweet lord. Okay so at the start he’s misleading and a cheater but he comes around, we have to give him that. He realises his mistakes and takes steps to set things right

The book is obviously very romantic because Paris! It is also realistic as it explores friendships and a high school environment (although a little stereotypical)

You also get a virtual tour of Paris reading this so kudos for that!
