{ Review } Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins


“For the two of us, home isn’t a place. It is a person. And we are finally home.”

Read in October 2015

My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars

Buddy read with Ezy for Bookworm Bitches

I liked this book very much. Especially because it took part in Paris, where I live and work, and that I could picture every place she went.

Anna is an American teenage girl, shipped to a French school by her father. She is full of clichés and not open-minded about the country and its culture.

I really enjoyed that Anna was what we can call “normal”, not the perfect beautiful girl but some kind of shy, natural, flawed girl. In Paris, she learns about love, trust and forgiveness, she grows up a lot all during the book.

At first Étienne was kind of “too perfect” to me, compared to all the other characters in this book. But the more we go, the more we understand his flaws as well.

We really can feel the alchemy growing between the two mains character, the frustration and deep care the mutually feel, I really enjoyed the lightness of this book, it was like sitting on a bench in a winter sunny day, watching the Seine, drinking Chocolat ChaudQuiet heaven.

However, I didn’t have as many feelings that I thought I would. I felt like watching a movie instead of living it.
