Anna and the French Kiss, Stephanie Perkins

It would have taken a lot for me to dislike this book since it features my favorite only been there in my mind city and promised lots of cute boys. In fact if that was all it had to offer I would still be recommending it as a fluffy January is depressing so here is a happy pick me up of a book kind of way.

The good news is that Anna and the French Kiss is so much more than just fluff. I love the premise- who wouldn't want to be shipped off to boarding school in Paris (well, actually Anna for one but that might be her one flaw). I love Anna- she's believable and real but not perfect. The story line with her BFF left behind in Georgia made me cringe in a good way and was resolved so well.

I loved all the details of Anna's interest in film and her critic plans. In fact all the talk of films en version originales was giving me flashbacks to french class and those little conversations they make you recite.

And I also love Etienne even if at first I felt his name was reminding me too much of Estee Lauder, taking me out of my cute boy visualizations. But I got over it and I love, love, loved Etienne & Anna. And Paris. I want to go to there.
