Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
I’ve been wanting to read this book for awhile ever since I got hold of it back in January but my busy schedule didn’t allow me. I’ve always had a good feeling about this book. Aside from hearing positive reviews of it, there’s something about the title itself that intrigues me.
When I first heard of the title I was a bit confused on what ‘French Kiss’ meant. I wondered if it was referring to the style of kissing( which by the way I have no idea why they call it so) or being kissed in France. After reading the synopsis, It seemed like the latter was correct.
Since I had two days off from school last week, I decided to start reading this book, At first, I didn’t find the book to be that enticing. I wasn’t that much drawn into the story until Etienne St. Clair came into the picture. I can’t explain why I feel so giddy about him. He just seems so dreamy. The British Accent, the messy hair and the way he teases Anna. He is definitely on my list of fictional crushes.
The way the book was written was very simple and contemporary which made it easier to read.The whole story was so light-hearted that it leaves you with tiny happiness bubbles.
This book actually kept me up at night. I was almost done with it. I had about five chapters left but I had school the next day so I needed to go to sleep but I just couldn’t. I literally got out of bed at around 3:00 in the morning just to finish it. I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I had to know what happens next and I eventually finished the book after and it was indeed a happy ending.
Overall, the whole book was great. I can’t stop thinking about it until now and I am still in love with St. Clair <3.
