I really adored the setting of this book, boarding school in Paris, can you say jealous? I know I can. It sets the stage for Anna and what a beautiful stage it is. And St Clair, what a sweet character. I really think this book could become a wonderful movie. All the lusting these kids do it's crazy!
I'm going to keep this review brief but I wanted to touch on the very few things that bothered me in the book, I thought Anna cried a bit too much, I mean yes she's a teen, far away from home and going through some emotional stuff, but still. Too much. And the way something played out (vague to avoid spoilers), I wasn't so happy with it, but oh well.
Luckily I've had the chance to read Stephanie Perkin's next book, Lola and the Boy Next Door, the companion to Anna and I like it even more! Ahh Stephanie Perkin's has a gift and I hope she never stops using it.

I haven't read Anna yet, but I do have it and hope to get to it soon. Thanks for the giveaway!ReplyDelete
Anna was incredible! I bought the e-book so that I always have it with me whenever I want to read it - it's that good. Thanks for the chance to win Lola, I'm sure that everyone who read Anna is anxious to get this one asap.ReplyDelete
Ah! I haven't read Anna yet but since you say Lola is just as good if not better, why not start with Lola right? =P I hope I win!ReplyDelete
I loved Anna and I'm hoping Lola is just as great. Thank you so much for the chance to win a copy.ReplyDelete

I've heard SO MANY good things about Lola, and while did like Anna and the French Kiss, I'm glad to know that Lola is even better! =)
Thank you so much ^^ this is one of the top books I want to read! :DReplyDelete
Paris is like another character in this novel, it literally breathes. You can see, hear, and taste the city in every word the author writes. As someone that's been to Paris, I can tell you that this is an incredible feat and allows the city to be truly magical.ReplyDelete
I adore this novel and I will definitely be reading more from Ms Perkins! She has a real gift for showing the honesty, heartache and humor that love can bring!
