I would have finished this book in one sitting but a lot of things got in the way. Thankfully, I’m almost settled already and I was finally able to finish it a couple of days back. So… Anna and the French Kiss. Sweet, cute and funny read. Learned a lot about Paris and the French. It started off slow and at some point, I felt like I might be too old for this book but I enjoyed my high school life and everyone’s got their own high school drama and so I went on.
Etienne St. Clair is a new favorite character. I didn’t enjoy Anna’s character at first but it got better towards the end. All the characters are believable so I think that’s what I like the most about this book. (Though I doubt there’s still a lot of Etienne out there!)
I did have some problems about this book but I liked it. The book was too predictable for me but it’s okay. There were parts where I found it too immature but then, it’s written for the younger crowd, and it’s pretty normal anyway to act immature when you’re young. 🙂
By the way, I liked Stephanie Perkins’ writing style.
“So what do I wish for? Something I’m not sure I want? Someone I’m not sure I need? Or someone I know I can’t have?”
“Girl scouts didn’t teach me what to do with emotionally unstable drunk boys.”
“Why is it that the right people never wind up together? Why are people so afraid to leave a relationship, even if they know it’s a bad one?”
“There’s only one thing I don’t love about him. Her.”
“For the two of us, home isn’t a place. It is a person. And we’re finally home.”
Rating : 4/5 American-British-French stars!
