Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Stars: 5

Summary from Goodreads: Anna is 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. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris—until she meets √Čtienne St. Claire: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home.

As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near-misses end with the French kiss Anna—and readers—have long awaited?

I finished the book a few minutes ago. And I am still in shock of its awesomeness. I am considering buying twenty copies to hand to my closest friends. I believe, that even my friends who are more likely to burn a book then read it, will fall in love with Anna and the French Kiss.

Oh my god. This book is so hawt. I'm going to die. But first I'm moving to Paris. To go to boarding school. Where hot short guys with English accents wander around and talk to people for fun.

 Oui,oui. Or, the Americanized version, wee wee.)

The writing was so easy, it didn't sound forced at all. It felt like I was talking to a friend instead of reading a book. Anna and the French Kiss was never dull. Romance, it has to have some slow parts, right? WRONG. I never felt the need to take a break from this pure amazingness. I was smiling the whole book. My mouth is numb from smiling so much. ( And it hurts I swear I've never smiled for so long is my life.)

Even the supporting characters were so real, the I memorized there names. Margaret/Mar, Rashmi/Rash, Josh. I tend to forget about the supporting characters most of the time : P When I think of Anna's Dad, I think of Nicolas Sparks. (Haha....)
I think Anna's love of movies was a great thing to put in. She even had a movie review website! It reminds me of my book love. Anna feels so relatable to me.  = >)

This book is officially going on one of the best-romance-books-I've-ever-read list. I never find myself liking romance books so much. If I had to pick between romance and paranormal, paranormal would win. I have to rethink my answer after this book.

I am so sorry..... I can't pick love triangle teams anymore. All I can think of is that, if Etienne St. Clair was transported into another book he would KICK EVERY LOVE-TRIANGLED GUYS BUTT. OH YEAH!
