I have to admit that Anna and the French Kiss is like most people said. It’s adorably cute!
Anna was shipped off to an American boarding school in Paris by her father, leaving her best friend, crush, family and her life. She was alone and was feeling a bit homesick when she met Meredith, her dorm neighbor. And later, she met with Etienne, a boy that Anna came to like a lot.
I love Anna. She’s sweet and funny. I love the relationship between her and the people around her –her friends and family. They sounded very realistic and alive! And I love how Stephanie Perkins described Etienne. He sounded so hot! Even his name, Etienne St. Clair, sounded really cute! I love every detail Stephanie Perkins written to describe Paris, the Notre Dame, the cafes, cinemas… Reading Anna and the French Kiss definitely makes me want to visit Paris soon!
Anna and the French Kiss had a simple, straightforward romance kind of story. The usual friendship and relationship problems. What differentiate Anna and the French Kiss and other romance book is that it is absolutely cute and fluffy. The story and dialogues flowed up really well. The humor is inserted in the right moment and the appropriate time. Stephanie Perkins writing makes you feel a bit giddy from all the sweetness and the fluffiness!
