Book Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Anna and the French Kiss
Author:  Stephanie Perkins
Publisher:  Dutton
Date Published:  December 2nd 2010

From Goodreads:

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.


Well, Anna and the French Kiss deserves all the praise it has been getting from bloggers/readers.  Believe the hype.

Everything about Anna and the French Kiss is awesome.  Never have I read a perfect YA contemporary.  The characters were great, the setting was fabulous, and the romance was perfect.

Anna and her knew french friends are a group I totally would want to hang out in back when I was younger.  They are a close knit fun group plus they are so realistic.  Kudos to Ms. Perkins for making them real.  Anna wasn't the perfect protagonist, but that is what makes her special.  She's normal, and approachable, and Etienne is a perfect crush worthy romantic lead.  

I really loved Anna and the French Kiss.  Can't wait to read Lola and the Boy Next Door.


  1. Oh yeah, I have heard nothing but good things. I pre-ordered this in paperback because it was a lot cheaper, so I am just waiting for it to come out and arrive!
