{Review} Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Anna and the French Kiss

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 Etienne St. Clair: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home.

As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near - misses end with the French kiss Anna - and readers - have long awaited? {Goodreads}

Just finished this book and KNEW I HAD to post the review right away! No joke! Just finished like maybe 10 minutes ago (not including the time taken to write this review)!

Ok so first of all let me start off with saying this...... I LOVE Paris settings!! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!!!! My first Paris set book was Die For Me by Amy Plum (that review will be coming soon! Due to my slacking in the review section) and that book started with my Paris infatuation/obsession! This book pushed my limits! It is official! No madder what! I am going to go live in Paris for a year or however long it takes me to learn French fluently! Then move to Spain....but that's beside the point.

I loved Anna and the French Kiss! Everything in this book was AMAZING!! Right now I'm feeling like I use the word "AMAZING" too freely! Hmmmmm....Well not this time! I mean it!! Take the best book you have ever read (contemporary) and times that love by 10...20....30......100%!!!!!! THATS how amazing this book was!! I have to admit.....this was my first contemporary book I have ever read! I know!! *waits for the gasps, rumors, hate*.............*people (reading this review and all over the world) gasp, rumor, hate, glare, pity, etc...* Yes, I know! It's shocking I get that geeze!! Enough with the hating already! ;) But just let me say.....BEST! CONTEMPORARY BOOK! EVER!!!!!!! Especially to start off with! :D

I loved Anna! And boy am I jelouse! I mean come on!!!! I have been dreaming to go to a school like SOAP for forever!!!! Why even complain! Why resist!!! :O Now there is a place to gasp, scream, pity, and whatever it is you guys have already done! Isn't she absolutely INSANE!!!!! I would kill to be in Anna's position! And not just because of Etienne! (Which I just so happen to be IN LOVE with...I'll get to him later though! ;) Anna is so very real. In fact, she kind of reminded me of myself in certain ways....the blogging (books for me instead of movies though), the feeling of just being average, the want to have that special someone, etc...I think ya get the point. Yes, I am DYING to have a boy of my own like St. Clair (Etienne).

NOW! For some St. Clair!!! OMG!! This is one HOTTTTT boy! He has made me decide to have Ash share his throne! I know!!!! Crazy right!!!!? No. Ash can still have his throne...I am just making a second! :) One throne goes to Ash...the ruler of the land of all things paranormal and fantasy (the north side of my heart) and the second one goes to Etienne....the ruler of the land of all things contemporary (the south side of my heart) Hahaha Dudes!!! Even if the synopsis doesn't intrigue you at all you NEED to read it just for him!

I LOVE him!!! He is not only sexy, French, hot!, smart, funny, and a bunch of others words that is nothing but GREATNESS! but he is so very real too! He has a background story that will be sure to break you heart. He is nothing close to perfect...thats what makes him so......PERFECT!! (like that's not contradicting at all! ;b He has his insicurities, his faults, his weaknesses and the cutest little quirks in the world! Plus...he has a British accent! Like Anna said "I can't think of one American girl who wouldn't fall for his accent"! Amen sista! I am one of those girls who melts at the sound of a boy's British accent! They are the best accent ever!!  I LOVE HIM!!! Have I mentioned that already? well it's more time!!!! I!!!!!! LOVE!!!!!!!!!!! HIMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is that enough? No? I didn't think so! ;)

Anna's friends were awesome too! They completed the whole story! And Oh My!!!!! That ending!!! *faints, swoons, dies, faints, swoons, DIES!!!!!* CUTEST EVER!!! :D

5/5 Stars! (and more!)

Do I honestly need to say more? Goodness! If you can't tell from my total fan-girl review how AMAZING this book need help!! I am sorry but you are absolutely INSANE!!!!! Offense intended! ;b This is a book I will surely keep forver! This will be my go-to book! When I feel I will never find the right boy, feel too average, or just need a feel good love story I will have this book at my side! And thanks to my blog sista Rockee! .....I have the companion book Lola and the Boy Next Door!!! Thanks Rockee! :D 

Oh and is anyone speculating like I am? If you have seen the last and final comapnion novel's title....Isla and the Happily Ever After.....then (well at least I am) you are thinking this.... Isla....Doesn't that sound uhmmm familiar? Isla...the one who has a huge crush on uhem! JOSH!!! The one who *SPOILER ALERT!!
Saw when Anna beat the crap out of Amanda! (which btw! Was freaking awesome! Way to go Anna! That witch deserved it!!) The one who stook up for Anna after that fight! The one who was the only nice person to Anna after the fight!******End of spoiler 

Ring an bells!!? Anyone!!!? Anyone at all!!? See where I'm going with this!!! :D If so.....YAY!!!! I can't wait for that (if true and I am right)! She seems like such a sweet heart! And she looks like she deserves what she wants! I like Josh! He's cute in his own way and I'm sure Miss Perkins will find a way to bring out the best in him cus uhm HELLO!!! They both are Juniors and have to stay!!! And then...if I am wrong....DARN! O well though! I can't get enough of Miss Perkin's absolutely enthralling writing!!! :D

You guys seriously need to......Go out and buy this book! and don't walk! don't skip! don't jog! NO!!!! SPRINT!!!!!! Sprint to your local bookstore and get this beauty in your hands like uhm! DUH!! RIGHT NOW!!! Seriously peoples! What is it going to take! ;D Well....I got to go now! (was supposed to be doing homework but why do homework when you are almost done with a great book! Why wait to post a review when you just finished a great book!) ;) Thanks again for stopping by! Have a great week!

Thanks for listening me rant! Hope you enjoyed and found this review helpful! :)


  1. Dude! One word: Gushtasticreviewever! Haha. Okay, that was, like, three words. But ya get the point. Seriously. I thought my review was gushy. But man, yours is just beyond. It's too cute and awesome for words! I'm swooning over St. Clair all over again--and I might just dream about him tonight! Haha. And I seriously love your "the south side of my heart" declaration of Etienne Love. It's ingenious. Mind if I steal it? No? Ooh. Okay. He's the French to my crepe. He's my Napolean to my Bonepart. And he's my Eiffle to my Tower. Exagg much? Haha.

    Great, gustastic review! If your review doesn't convince people tonread this swoonful book, I don't know what will. And I say we go learn french and find our St. Clair in Paris! Just give me 2 to three years to save money for the plane ticket. Haha!

  2. I really need to read this one! Everyone seems to rave about this one and I haven't read it yet! I should seriously read this one soon. Thanks for the review!
