Book Review: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Synopsis from Goodreads:

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. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all…including a serious girlfriend.

But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss?

My mini-review:

“For the two of us, home isn’t a place. It’s a person.”

So, I can’t deny that this book was every bit of cuteness and fluff that I expected of it. And I must admit, I ate it all up. Yes, the tropes, stereotypes, and clichés are ever-so-plenty in Young Adult fiction, and this book is no exception, but I loved reading every page of it. I started reading sometime after midnight (thinking I could get a taste from the first couple of chapters before I went to bed) and then the next thing you know, it’s 4:30am and I’m skimming the acknowledgments. That’s what you call a “good read”. Literally.

★★★★ (4 stars) for being just as cute and romantic as I thought it would be. This is the perfect book for getting out of a reading slump. I wasn’t in one, but it felt like a slump was coming on.
