Review

Stephanie Perkins captures all the agony and ecstasy of a blossoming new relationship in this shamelessly romantic story. --Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading4kids

Anna and the French Kiss is all those things that girls long for... a fun, refreshing and life-affirming story which convinces us that love really does make the world go round. --The Lancashire Evening Post

For a few weeks I had been trying to decide which book was my favourite of 2013. I thought about City of Bones, I pondered over Ketchup Clouds...but even though I'd only just read it, I finally decided that the best book I read in 2013 was Anna and the French Kiss. Never has a book lingered on my mind for as long as this one has. --The Mile Long Bookshelf

Anna and the French Kiss was the kind of book that made me squee, pull weird faces at myself in the mirror, hyperventilate, jump up and down, internally keyboard bash and yell (in caps lock) in my mind... a wonderful book that is guaranteed to make you smile and laugh and melt inside. --Guardian Children's Books

When Anna And The French Kiss ended, I didnt know what to do. I certainly cant wait to read more of Stephanies books. --Emma Louise Blog

Never has a book lingered on my mind for as long as this one has. --The Mile Long Bookshelf

Anna and the French Kiss is edgy, fast-paced and sweet. It's a coming of age novel which focuses on the tenderness of first love and discovering where your heart truly lies. This book is as romantic as the city it is set in. Beautifully written... with a set of brilliant characters, you mustn't miss this gem. Stephanie Perkins is definitely my current favourite YA author! --I Heart Chick Lit

I fell in love with it from the very first chapter... Your fictional crush can move out of the way for Ettiene St. Clair. Yet another beautifully crafted, realistic character that Perkins has created, you can't help but fall in love with him. --Growing Wings

5.0 out of 5 stars Cinq étoiles! 20 Dec 2010
Format:Hardcover
Let me warn you, this review will hardly be coherent due to a severe case of swooning. I am still recovering from the melting galore this book had me in because oh my God, Anna and the French Kiss has everything I want in a YA romance ... and more!

Don't you just hate it when parents try to live their lives through their children? That is exactly what's happening to Anna Oliphant. When her father decides to enroll her in an American boarding school in Paris, Anna's life drastically changes. She is forced to leave her family, friends and a hot boy crush back in Atlanta to be the new girl in a class of 25 seniors in a foreign country. Pretty crazy, but trust me, the author makes it f-u-n. The book follows her adventures in the most romantic city in the world...with the beautiful Etienne St. Clair, whose mere name is already so sexy!

Anna is a wonderful character and a smooth, flawless narrator. She's endearing, extremely lovable and her narration is the perfect depiction of the awkwardness of not only being the new girl in a new school in a new city (and alone!) but also of the twists and turns of falling for the perfect boy, who just so happens to be unavailable. What I enjoyed most is the fact that Anna has a surprising amount of thoughts floating about in her head. I adore her mental dialogue and humour, and there are some laugh out loud moments in the book that should be noted by all. Anna is also a little sarcastic, perhaps patronising, at times insecure. Despite all these, she's such a natural character - every girl in her shoes would probably act and think similar to her.

You will also love the secondary characters in the book. Anna's clique - Meredith, Rashmi and Josh - are a colourful bunch!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not as fluffy as you might expect! 4 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Who would I recommend this book to? Those who enjoy chick-lit and young adult contemporary romance.

Review; When I saw the name and cover of this book I was like; "Ugh, chick-lit to the max!" When I started reading this book I was still not sure about it, but when I finished this book several hours later I was like; "Wow, when can I get the next one?" Whilst this book is still chick-lit it is not boring, dull, or completely cliché! At least in my opinion it's not.
I did have a bit of a problem with the beginning. Anna seemed like one of those, "I have everything, but I hate everything and complain about everything" characters. Thank goodness she wasn't! She wasn't too whiny, but she did complain a bit too much in places, but she understood that in the end. Which eventually led me to like those flaws.
The people had flaws! Nobody was perfect which I loved! I fell in love with all the main characters, but I liked Etienne, Anna and Rashimi best!
Looking at this book you'd probably think "what a load of fluff" but I'm happy to tell you you'd be wrong! There's some fluff, that's to be expected, but it is also a great book that doesn't just focus on a relationship. This is a great book, I'd totally recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely and fun! 25 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Review: how has it taken me so long to read this book? Unfortunately I think these books have dropped down my list because they are classed as purely reading for pleasure and joy and not for review-that's a shame isn't it? nevertheless, here's what I thought of Anna and The French-just so damn cute! Everyone has told me how sweet and lovely this book is and I really wasn't let down. When I was younger I really enjoyed books set in schools, everything I read was a book set in a school and so when I found out that this one was set it a school-I was over the moon. This book is like Glee meets every cute teen rom com you've read meets something written by. John Green-it's such an easy read and pleasure in every page.

In terms of the plot, it's not the most complex of things, girls moves to Paris, meets a boy, boy is taken and the fun ensues from there. The only thing that stopped this book being a five star read for me was that more things didn't happen. I felt a bit like sometimes, we could have gone into more depth on a couple of scenes or found out a bit more about St Clair and his parents but then it wouldn't have been such a quick read so it really didn't effect me enjoying the book one bit.

Anna seems to have her head screwed on properly, something which I find isn't always the case with YA heroines, so I was pleasd about that. I thought her lack of French skills was fairly improbable but I don't hold that against her and can't wait to read more about her in Lola and the Boy Next Door. St Clair is a bit of a bad boy, leading Anna on somewhat when he already has a girlfriend but he is a real gentlemen at heart and is definitely Anna's knight in shinning armour so he's all good in my books.
