Anna and the French Kiss

     Aaaaahhhhh, loved this book. Loved it loved it loved it. Seriously. I really did.
     I'd heard so much about it, lots of people raving, so I thought I'd get it from my library. There was a waiting list. So I decided, dash it all, I'll just buy the thing. (I usually don't say dash it all.)
     Anyway, SO GOOD. It didn't disappoint. It didn't even fail to live up to the hype (I hate it when that happens). It so far surpassed the hype that it basically blew the hype out of the water. Last night I went to a movie but the whole time was wishing I was at home with this book instead. And today? Well, I just read all day because I couldn't stop.
     Okay, I don't really know what I'm saying. I'm still in France. With Anna. And Etienne St. Clair.
     Speaking of, I know I already picked my crush of the week but can I pick a literary crush? Because it so would be St. Clair. It's not only American girls who love British accents. Well done, Stephanie Perkins. Well done. I just wish you (I'm speaking to you Perkins) would give us a cast list because I'd really like to know what actor you'd pick to play him. I've wracked my brain but I can't think of anyone good enough.
     Anyway, if you (yes I'm talking to you now) haven't read this book... WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR???


  1. Now you've got me all excited about this and I haven't even heard a whisper of any hype, lol. Off to check it out :)

  2. Don't you love it when you find a book you can't put down? It sounds interesting. Thanks for the review.

  3. I have this book under my bed and plan to start it this week. Maybe a month ago I found Stephanie Perkins' blog/site when randomly looking at blogs. Loved her blue hair! Thought she had fun style and bought the book. I should have started it by now...Can't wait to get into it.

  4. YAY! I am so glad to hear this. I just bought this and it is waiting patiently for me to read it! I can't wait!

  5. Wow, this sounds super. I guess I'll check it out.

  6. Oh I so agree with you! I love love love love this book. My heart fluttered every time Anna and St.Clare interacts.

    PS: Hello from a fellow campaigner, I'm on your Women Fiction/Chicklit group :)

  7. I've heard so many great things about this book. My library doesn't even have a copy. I guess I will just have to hit Amazon.
