Book: Anna and the French Kiss
If you want some kilig vibes, then this book is for you!
If you believe that Paris is the city of love, then this book is for you!
If someday you want to visit Paris, then this book is for you!
If you are into cheesy novels, then this book is for you!
If you want to get away from your reality for a while, then this book is for you!
I haven't been having the kilig vibes for so long so I decided to read this book by Stephanie Perkins, Anna and the French Kiss. I can't remember where I learned about this book, maybe on twitter or Goodreads or somewhere else. But I am glad I had to read this book. :)
I was up all night last night finishing this book. I think I have 30 or less pages left till I finish it. Slept at around 2 in the morning eager to finish the book. Guess what, the book didn't let me down.
This is the kind of book that I have always been wanting to read. A little chic-lit with a twist of romance. Just a little bit of that spice and everything's fine!
So there's this girl named Anna who lives in Atlanta, Georgia whose father forced her to study in an American school in Paris. She's already in her senior year in high school and she's spending her last year as the new girl in school. She made friends with the seniors Meredith, Rashmi and St. Clair and junior Josh. She has fallen head over heels with the gorgeous-and-perfect-hair Etienne or famously known as St. Clair. But the thing is St. Clair is already tied with his long-time partner Ellie. Ever since day 1, St. Clair has laid his eyes on Anna already but was afraid to admit it to himself, to Ellie and to Anna. Etienne wants Anna but doesn't want to let go of Ellie yet. How will the story go? You have to find it out for yourself.
While I was reading the book, I was imagining Anna as Lily Collins while Etienne as Josh Devine. You just google who these people are if you want to know how they look like.
The book is so cheesy that you want to scream while reading! Hahaha. Trust me, I smile every once in a while while I was reading it. Etienne is so cute in everything he does. Anna is so effing clueless! I want to strangle her! Haha. Etienne is so into her but she does not notice it. Why why why! :))
This book does not focus only on their love story by the way. It has something to do with friendship and family problems too.
Anna and the French Kiss makes me crave for Paris even more! There were a lot of descriptions of the places and stuff you'll find only in Paris and I was imagining them all hoping that one day I get to see them with my two bare eyes. I really really want to go to Paris someday. I know it's every girl's dream.
So what are you waiting for, go read it too. It's worth the time. :)
