Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris—until she meets Étienne St. Claire: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home.

As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near-misses end with the French kiss Anna—and readers—have long awaited?

My Thoughts:

If I had to choose my favorite book that I read in 2011 up to date it would have to be Anna and the French Kiss! It’s so cute and adorable. The characters, Anna’s world and the author’s writing style made me read this book in less than a day! Anna is just one of those characters that I immediately connected to, I may not have moved to a totally different country but it sure did feel that way. Then there’s St. Claire who is totally swoony! He seems just like any guy. He has his strengths and his faults, which has to be one of the things I really loved about this book! It’s not one of those books that are just like omg I’m in love with that boy the entire time, it’s a gradual type of thing. Which makes this book more realistic. I am definitely picking up anything this author writes. I’m completely blown away. I give this novel 5 out of 5 paws.
