Anna and the French Kiss
Anna and the French Kiss | Stephanie Perkins
Anna can't wait for her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a good job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. So she's not too thrilled when her father unexpectedly ships her off to boarding school in Paris - until she meets Etienne St. Clair, the perfect boy. The only problem? He's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her crush back home. Will a year of romantic near-misses end in the French kiss Anna awaits?"Magical.

This was a cute, but a little too predictable story about a girl, in Paris for school abroad, who meets a boy, in Paris, in school abroad.

I only read this because it fit a reading challenge category, but I ended up really liking it! It felt very realistic, and while there was some teen drama it wasn‘t overwhelming. A little cheesy, but an overall fun read. 4/5 stars, will probably read more by this author.

Probably the worst and most annoying book I‘ve read in a while. I don‘t read contemporary a lot but when I do I expect something ... more than what this gave me. I technically listened to it and had to speed up to x2 so I could just be done with it. I didn‘t like the message it gave to young adults.

justanothermusing I fell the same way, I'm sad.to say i found them on sale so i have the series. I couldn't even make it 50 pages so they will be finding there way to the little free library. 13mo
Zelma Completely agreed. I remember being very annoyed about the pointless reason for the two main characters to not just start dating right away. It made no sense. There was not reason for all the hurt and drama. 13mo

I was torn after reading this book. Had I picked I up a few years ago I would likely be rating it fairly high (I did enjoy it, and the narrator on the audiobook was good). But in the last couple years I've become more aware of potentially problematic content (being in the community and listening to the discussions) and I found that while I liked this book, it normalized some more toxic themes so my end review is somewhat middling.

“The pressure is on. They‘ve teased me all week, because I‘ve avoided anything that requires ordering. I‘ve made excuses (“I‘m allergic to beef,” “Nothing tastes better than bread,” “Ravioli is overrated”), but I can‘t avoid it forever. Monsieur Boutin is working the counter again. I grab a tray and take a deep breath. “Bonjour, uh . . . #soup? Sopa? S‘il vous plaît?” #QuotsyNov18

"And for the first time since coming home, I'm completely happy. It's strange. Home. How I could wish for it for so long, only to come back and find it gone. To be here, in my technical house, and discover that home is now someplace different.
But that's not quite right, either.
I miss Paris, but it's not home. [...] Is it possible for home to be a person and not a place?"

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 Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all...including a serious girlfriend.
Haven‘t read it but has a great rating on Goodreads.

“For the two of us, home isn‘t a place. It‘s a person. And we‘re finally home.” This book was so cute. It was great having the french culture tied into a romance novel. Even more cliche considering they are falling in love in the “city of love”.

I know this is an unpopular opinion, and I was going to make this a pick because I love reading fluff, but the more I thought about it, the less I liked it. The fact that Étienne had a girlfriend was an issue for me because of my own experience, and I didn‘t like the girl-hate thing with Ellie. Like it was fine for him to flirt with Anna because Ellie was a rubbish girlfriend? Anna particularly annoyed me with how she treated Bridge. ?

Cosyreader It‘s a shame because some of this was sweet, and if he didn‘t have a girlfriend then I probably would‘ve loved it, but it just felt wrong. Are the others in the series similar? 2y
Zelma I had the exact same feeling about this. It seemed like he had a girlfriend just so there was a roadblock to being with Anna. But there was no requirement to stay with Ellie and pine for Anna so it made no sense. Just break up and move one without all of the melodrama and bad feelings. 2y
Cosyreader @Zelma exactly! I know there had to be something in the way of them being together because otherwise it would be a really short book, but this was a bad choice. 2y
hes7 I felt the same way about the whole girlfriend thing! I think I liked the other two books better for that reason. 2y
Cosyreader @hes7 I‘m glad I‘m not the only one! I‘ll give the other two a go then 😊 2y

Sad news from the book world today - Fred Bass, who ran the Strand with his father since the 1930s, has died at 89. Bass made the Strand into the city institution it was, and although he could be a little cranky (in the classic NY sense), he always gave me the best price when I needed to sell books. So of course I honored him by buying books that are outside of my wheelhouse. The Strand always reminds me to "stay curious," thanks to Fred. #rip

GoldenGirl ☹😢 Oh wow. I just started shopping the Strand's website. How sad. 2y

Imagine being forced to complete your senior year at an exclusive private high school in Paris. Poor Anna is forced to leave Atlanta at the whim of her rich dad. Fortunately those rich French/British/American dudes are yummy. Lots of drama ! Teen angst and first world problems. A guilty pleasure, YA romance.

JanuarieTimewalker13 I've never read this one, but the idea of leaving your school in senior year is sad to me. That was my favorite year!! Plus you want to celebrate with the kids you've been around your whole life!! I believe this one is on my GR TBR. 2y
ReadingSusan That book made me hungry!! All the bakery descriptions were amazing! 2y
Dragon Thanks @JanuarieTimewalker13 exactly, why would a parent force their teenager to move in senior year for no good reason? Senior year was the best year of high school in our town. 2y
Dragon Thanks @ReadingSusan me too! I definitely want to stop by a French Patisserie ASAP. I also enjoyed the description of Shakespeare and Company. Paris was a strong supporting character in the novel. 🇫🇷 2y

Because the rubber duck is France's Godzilla.. "Qu'est-ce que c'est? C'EST UN CANARD EN PLASTIQUE-...illa!" (I made that last part up..

Never really been much of a traveller, but I always imagined I'd quite like to see Paris. I am fond of croissants, Art, and walking along rivers. But maybe these days, I wouldn't feel as safe, so I am kind of happy where I live now. But I did absolutely love this book.

Contemporary YA is not usually my thing, but this novel was just so cute. Anna and Etienne were a swoonworthy couple and while the attraction was there from the beginning, it wasn't instalove but a relationship that had to overcome realistic obstacles and develop over time. I loved the Paris setting and how the romance was essential to the story but it was also about blooming in a new environment and discovering who you are. A sweet romantic read.
