Anna can't wait for her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a good job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. So she's not too thrilled when her father unexpectedly ships her off to boarding school in Paris - until she meets Etienne St. Clair, the perfect boy. The only problem? He's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her crush back home. Will a year of romantic near-misses end in the French kiss Anna awaits?

My Thoughts

Rating: 5/5 stars

Anna And The French Kiss is probably one of the best contemporary novels I've ever read. Stephanie Perkins writes a believable romance with completely realistic characters to create a novel that was so unbelievably good. It kept me awake past midnight. I read lots and lots of YA books but this one is really special, one of my favorites, because it has fun, natural dialogues with interesting characters who have great chemistry and seem like a perfect fit for each other. It was such a refreshing read. There were some parts where I laughed out loud, and some where I found myself swooning over the male character, Etienne.

The main character, Anna, was very realistic and strong. I really liked her. She was very easy to relate to. Her relationship with St. Clair was really cute! I loved their romance. It wasn't love at first sight, and didn't feel forced. It was so swoon worthy!

I highly recommend it to everyone who's looking for a cute contemporary novel with a sweet and beautiful romance.
