Anna and the French Kiss
By Stephanie Perkins
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
So I finally read Anna and the French Kiss and I understand why everybody seems to love it. This is quite possibly the cutest and most adorable book that I have ever read. Stephanie Perkins you are amazing! I loved reading about Anna and St. Clair and how their relationship evolved over the book. I’m not an overly emotional person and don’t cry too much, but this book had me.
I really like the character of Anna, she was funny, sarcastic, and if she was real or if I knew her personally I think that we would be really good friends. Etienne St. Clair. What is not to like about him other than his girlfriend? He is funny, sweet, caring and all up an amazing guy.
If you have not yet read this book, or even if you have I would definitely recommend this book. It is a cute YA contemporary romance that will have you laughing and crying, sometimes at the same time.
Below are some of my thoughts, although they do contain spoilers, so if you haven’t yet read this book and don’t want to be spoiled come back after.
Okay, so I loved this book and I don’t really have anything bad to say about it. The one thing that annoyed me though, was Etienne’s unwillingness to break up with his girlfriend. If you like/love Anna and keep flirting with her, why are you still with her??? On Anna’s birthday when Etienne gives her the excuse that he doesn’t want to be alone I was so annoyed with him and was glad that Anna pointed out the fact that he wouldn’t be alone and that his excuse was lame and stupid.
When Anna and Etienne kissed I was ecstatic, but the events that followed brought me to tears. Although I had suspected that Etienne left to break up with his GF, it still hurt. The way Anna was treated by her peers had me in tears for her.
The scene when Etienne is telling Anna how much he loves her was so freaking cute, but once they get together the book ends. What?!?! I want more, like a chapter or two with them as a couple, but no it ends a page or two later. So fingers crossed they appear in Lola and Isla’s story’s, which they should.
