Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Hello everyone! Yes, I know it is 2:30am but I am leaving for vacation in about an hour so I figured I'd post a last minute review for you guys. This one is Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. The description is here:

Anna was 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. So she's less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris — until she meets √Čtienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, √Čtienne 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?

Holy Frick! First of all, look at that GORGEOUS cover! B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L is all I have to say. Second of all, this book was amazing! I was so excited to read this book that I started reading it as soon as I got home and finished it that night. I'm a big sucker for love stories, and this one was definitely one of my favorites. Stephanie Perkins' writing is like a mixture between Sarah Dessen, Susane Colasanti, and Kristen Walker, which are all amazing authors. This book is full of comedy, love, and a bunch of Parisian goodness! I would definitely let Stephanie write my life if she was going to make it like this. This book was very refreshing and made me remember why I love reading so much.
Unfortunately, this book doesn't come out until December, but you guys have to get your hands on it when it comes out. You will not be disappointed, I promise!


  1. Awesome!! I will sooo have to read it when it comes out!

  2. HURRAH! Thank you so much for this wonderful review, Tricia. I'm so happy that you enjoyed it! I would gladly write your life if I could. ;)

    (And ohmyword, thank you for putting me in the same sentence with SARAH FREAKING DESSEN!)

  3. By the way, Daisy's book The Mockingbirds is one of *MY* favorite books of 2010!

  4. I can't wait to read this book!

  5. yay! When will the review for Imaginary Enemy be up?


  6. That book looks super cute! Thanks for the fabulous review! :)

  7. Read it. Loved it. READ IT AGAIN.

  8. I am absolutely in love with this book! The story whisks you away to Paris and evokes the city completely. The romance is delicious and tingly and real - these are well-drawn characters grappling with real emotions and, dare I say, true love. Stephanie has crafted rich characters who come alive with flaws and complexities. You will root for them and your heart will melt.
