Oh my God.

Cutest. Book. EVER.

[a:Maureen Johnson|10317|Maureen Johnson|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1197703391p2/10317.jpg] was totally right when she said, "Very sly. Very funny. Very romantic. You should date this book."

Because I totally WANT TO.

Anna is awesome. Funny, witty and very stupid at times, she's your typical seventeen-going-on-eighteen year old girl. She is so, so easy to sympathise with and is hilarious.

Etienne St. Clair is SUPER HOT.

And so is everyone else. (Of course)

The only problem I had with this book is that, all my life, I have wanted to visit Paris and now I want to even more. It's not one of those books that only use the city as a backdrop -- Paris is definitely part of the entire storyline. Anna first falls in love with the beauty of Paris and then with the lad that showed her the wonderful City of Light. So now I'm trying to find a way to get my ass over there and experience was Perkins described.

I am so, so happy I picked up this book and gave it a shot. I NEEDED A GOOD OL' CHICK-LIT IN MY LIFE. Especially since I've been reading the Most Disappointing Books in History lately.

Everyone should read this book at least once in their lifetime. There is NOTHING this book won't solve. It works better than long phone calls with your best friend. Better than chick flicks.

Really enjoyed this. Loved the Parisian setting details and the realistic relationship development.

I don't ordinarily read chick lit, but I do watch romantic comedies, so I guess they are kinda the same. I imagined Etienne as looking like Chace from GG but with an English accent, and I enjoyed it for what it was, light hearted teen romance. Maybe Chace can play him in the movie. On the down side, there were really no surprises. I knew the plot by page 32, but with many rom-com's I could probably say the same thing. I did like the setting, being in France and adding in little bits of the history of the area was probably the books point of difference. I'm not sure what I think about the digs at authors like Nicholas Sparks / Jodi Piccoult who use the tragedy formula, because I haven't, read those either. I felt it was a rough criticism when French Kiss was formulaic itself. Anna and the French Kiss was a taste of Paris with a light romance, a bit of enjoyable fluff, that I didn't have to think too hard about. If goodreads had halves I would probably add an extra 1/2. Great for the girls that are into their romance stories. ( )

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins is a romance set in a Parisian boarding school. Anna's novelist father sends her to the school for her senior year. In Anna's opinion he does this because he wants to seem highbrow and sophisticated. She resents going, especially when things have just started to heat up with the cute boy at the theater where she works, but she doesn't really have a choice. Of course, as the story progresses there is another cute boy, a close-knit group of friends, a Mean Girl, and plenty of relationship drama. At one point I laughed out loud and commented to the empty room, "This is porn for teenage girls!" (Note possible minor spoiler: at that point in the novel, Anna and her crush were sleeping together in the same bed -- fully clothed, and at that point in their relationship they were not even kissing, but their arms and legs brushed against each other . . . and then they fell asleep. See what I mean? Teenage girl porn.)

I am making fun of it, yes, but it is a good book, and I would certainly recommend it to teens looking for a romance -- particularly those who enjoy Maureen Johnson, Sarah Dessen, and the like. And it almost made me want to visit Paris. Almost. ( )

Book description
From Goodreads.com

Anna was 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. So she's less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris — until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all . . . including a serious girlfriend.

But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss? Stephanie Perkins keeps the romantic tension crackling and the attraction high in a debut guaranteed to make toes tingle and hearts melt.
