Anna and the French Kiss ~Review

"I'm saying I'm in love with you! 
I've been in love with you this 
whole bleeding year!"

Back of the book:

Can Anna find love in the City of Light? 
Anna is happy in Atlanta. She has a loyal best friend and a crush on her coworker at the movie theater, who is just starting to return her affection. So she's less than thrilled when her father decides to send her to a boarding school in Paris for her senior year. But despite not speaking a word of French, Anna meets some cool new people, including the handsome Etienne St. Clair, who quickly becomes her best friend. Unfortunately, he's taken - and Anna might be, too. Will a year of romantic near misses end with the French kiss she's been waiting for?

This book was pretty cute. Even today, six years after being published, there is still a lot of hype over this book. So I decided to check it out. I am very please with the results. 

I read this book in a day, it was a definite page turner and got my attention. My first encounter with Stephanie Perkins was in her collection of short holiday stories; My True Love Gave to Me.  I was impressed then, she captivated me with the way she wrote and her cute idea of being attracted to a voice for her project. 

Anna and the French Kiss was just as adorable. I think my favorite part of it, was the realistic relationship building. There was no instant love, but a slow gradual burning of love. It was great. 

I loved how you could tell how Anna felt about Etienne, whether angry or happy with him by which name she called him. 

This was a definite page turner, I couldn't put it down. All I wanted to do was get to the next part, find out what happened next. Perkins did a great job of making it fast paced. There was no time where it lagged and made me yawn, no, it was all quick paced and entertaining. 

If you haven't read this book, I highly recommend that you pick this up next. It's the perfect February book to read. It makes your heart flutter and you smile to yourself while reading. It's a fabulous read. Five stars for sure!!
