Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

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 √Čtienne 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?

I loved loved loved Anna and the French Kiss! To be honest I love the whole YA romance genre in general, but this book was definitely a stand out.

Let's start off with the characters, they were amazing. Anna was an awesome Main Character, I loved watching her try to deny her attraction to St. Clair, and I loved the little details Perkins threw in to give her depth, like the fact that she wanted to be a famous movie critic. You couldn't help but feel almost tortured at certain points of the book when certain ummmmm, steamy situations arose between her and St. Clair, because, well, St. Clair is the perfect boy. I loved St. Clair from the minute Anna met him, how could you not? English accent, awesome looks, nice, talented, St. Clair is just the perfect boy (even if I did want to hit him for his stupidity at times).

To make the book even more fabulous we had an awesome plot that contained a few twists I certainly was not expecting, and a few that I was.When I first saw this book I wasn't sure if the author would really have a plot that interested me enough to fill up that many pages, but she certainly did!To top it all off Perkins also set the whole thing in France, the most romantic city in the world, and can I just say that her descriptions of the food in France made me extremely hungry!

Even if you classify yourself as a strict no romance reader, pick up Anna and the French Kiss, I promise it will charm you!
