Anna & The French Kiss

Anna And The French Kiss.
Stephanie Perkins
Publication Date: December 2, 2010.
Genre:Romance/Young Adult.

I first heard about Anna and the French Kiss on a facebook fan page that I joined. Afterwards I came across it in bookstore but had no money to get it. I ended up getting the book for my birthday, In November. I loved it; this was an amazing debut novel by Stephanie Perkins . I was hooked from very first sentence, I wanted to see what would happen to Anna from the start, I was curious how she would adjust to life in Paris. I loved that the story took place in Paris.
Anna is happy with her life in Atlanta, she has a great best friend and a Crush who is just starting return the affection. Anna isn’t too pleased when her father sends her off to boarding school in Paris, for her senior year. Even though she doesn’t know French, she soon makes fast friends, including the handsome St.Clair. Anna & St. Clair become instant best friends.

However, the more time the two of them spend time together, the deeper feelings develop. However there is one problem, St.Clair is taken and a friend of hers has a major crush on him as well. The more they are together, the harder it gets for her. Only question, will St.Clair realize that he wants to be with Anna. Will Anna finally get the kiss, she wanted for so long?

I loved the friendship between St.Clair & Anna. Somehow I had the feeling that they would bond from very beginning. There was a special connection between the two of them. I could tell from the moment they met, that there was attraction between the two of them. I also knew for fact that St. Clair felt the same, ever since the movie scene, I knew that the feelings were there, and I’m pretty sure that was the reason that he and his girlfriend fought. I loved the fact that St.Clair and Anna remained best friends through most of the novel, not get together, fall in love right away. I could feel the tension between the two of them as well, whenever they were together though.

I loved the Paris scene, when St.Clair and Anna were exploring it together. It drew such beautiful scene, I could actually imagine it. I felt as I was actually there, In Paris. I wanted to be there, actually. There were times I wanted to scream at St.Clair when one minute he’s best friends with Anna; next, he’s ignoring her. However, I liked that their relationship was more of like/ hate kind of relationship or it seemed like at times. Even if he was a jerk, I loved the fact that he was always there for Anna in the end. Like when she found about her crush and her best friend, just like she was there when he found about his mom.

There wasn’t anything that I didn’t like about this novel. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would. From moment I read it, Stephanie had become one of my favorite authors; I can’t wait to read her other books. I would recommend this to everyone, especially anyone into romance. You won’t be disappointed.
