I was more than surprised by how much I loved Anna and the French Kiss. This is one of those books where I couldn't help but just swoon over everything! The writing seemed effortless and.... FLUID! I didn't feel like there were separate chapters or sections in the book that stuck out. There was just this flow that makes you want to finish the book without stopping.
I was just trying to kill some time before bed when I picked up Anna. Before I knew it, it was 2 am and I was still reading. Time flies by pretty quick while reading Stephanie's SPECTACULAR writing. The voice in Anna is just.... Gosh I'm not even sure how to describe it. There was just this strong and natural voice.
The characters were written in a way that I felt like they were real! There are some characters where I could only find in books, but not the characters in this book. Anna's reaction to being left in Paris was like how any else would. She started off scared and intimidated, but like anyone she some friends.... like Étienne St. Clair. I'm a swooner hands down. If St. Clair was over in Paris right now I'd pack my bags and go roam the streets. St. Claire is smart, classy, passionate, and an "English French American Boy Masterpiece".
Anna and the French Kiss is the perfect summer read if you're looking for something fun and romantic.
