I read this book in a day, it was a definite page turner and got my attention. My first encounter with Stephanie Perkins was in her collection of short holiday stories; My True Love Gave to Me.  I was impressed then, she captivated me with the way she wrote and her cute idea of being attracted to a voice for her project.

I picked this book to read out of the hundreds on my TBR shelf because I wanted something fun and more realistic fiction. This book was perfect. It was just what I needed, and I can't believe I waited so long to read it. Anna and St. Clair are frustrating in parts, but you can totally feel the love they have for each other throughout the book. It also makes me want to visit Paris. I'm very eager to read Lola and the Boy Next Door and Isla and the Happily Ever After because if they are anything like Anna and the French Kiss I'll be one satisfied reader.

After my last read, dystopian with so much death and sadness, I knew that I needed a little happiness to perk my up a bit and Anna and the French Kiss did just that. I swear, the entire time I was reading this there was a cheesy smile on my face and it was really funny. I loved the romance and that it wasn't so much of an insta-love like all the books I have read lately. Anna and Étienne... I love them. (Although I kind of like Josh a little because of how artistic he is.. and I would've loved to know more about him) But Étienne is amazing and dreamy, and I found myself reading everything he said in that lovely English Accent. Yes I am one of those girls who love the accent lol. The entire story, it just felt so real like it could happen to me. I loved the friendships Anna built and how they became a little family away from their own families and even the bits about Anna's family... I mean when she talks about her dad, I just laugh a little because he's a writer about romance between people with cancer and stuff and I immediately think of Nicholas Sparks and maybe... John Green (Except I love John Green) But lets get back to Anna. I just loved how Anna and Étienne's friendship grew, that there were best friends and it wasn't just full on lust and I want to take your pants off type of story. And I loved that the characters where a little older than the usual YA Romance where they are like 16 years old and found their soulmate and are like in love at first sight. Plus, the fact that the story takes place in Paris just makes me want to fly out there and find my own Étienne. Completely recommend!!
