Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins | Book Review


Hi, bloggerians! How are you? Is it to cliche of me asking that question every time I'm updating my blog? Isn't it? Well, that's what usually happens when I don't do blog frequently. That's bad. and I don't like it. Come on, the blog is everything to me. and You, right? Anyway, just wanted to tell you, I am currently trying to find another job. and if you happen to know there is a vacancy somewhere somehow, please do let me know, please. I mean pretty please :'( Not because I hate my current job, no way man, I love my job but somehow I'm bit tired with my working hours, that's all hmm I literally cry.

Anyway, let's get back to my main idea of updating my blog today. I just finished reading Anna and the French Kiss!!! Oh my god! This book - it's just, gosh! I love it! I really really love it. Very much. and I feel kind of forlorn that I finish the book so fast. Not, I don't want to spoil more before I make the review of the book. Let's get into it!

Don't you think the book looks beautiful? :D

Anna is happy in Atlanta. She has a loyal best friend and a crush on her coworker at the movie theater, who is just starting to return her affection. So she's less than thrilled when her father decides to send her to a boarding school in Paris for her senior year. But despite not speaking a word of French, Anna meets some cool new people, including the handsome Ettiene St. Clair, who quickly becomes her best friend. Unfortunately, he's taken - and Anna might be, too. Will a year romantic near misses end with the French kiss she's been waiting for?


Let's first talk about how beautiful the cover is! Gosh! This cover has really caught my eyes, the first time I saw it on the shelf sitting there waiting for me to pick her up. Very beautiful. I love how the cover has expressed in their own words of the love between Anna and Ettiene.

I just love how Stephanie Perkins' writing this novel. It's very beautiful about love, friends, family. The story is so full of the love between friends, the feeling of being rejected, having no confidence in telling the truth about their feelings, scared of being alone, it's just perfectly written in one story. Have you ever felt that kind of feelings? Honestly, I do. I guess that's why, somehow, this story it's connected straight to my heart. I don't know what I'm saying, right now? Whatever. Scratch that out. hihi

About me mum and dad. How she gives in to him. How she won't leave him. And as much I love her, I hate her for it. o don't understand why she won't stand up for herself, why she won't go for what she wants. But I've been doing the same thing. I'm just like her.

Those words. Its really describe how Ettiene feels about how he scared of being alone if he leaves his girlfriend - Ellie. He has seen how his mum, who is really loyal to his father, even though his father has pushed his wife away from him and even put his son(Ettiene) away from her by sending Ettiene to a boarding school in Paris while his Mum is in the US. So, he has this thought of not to break up with his girlfriend because he wants to be loyal as what his mum did. This is all because he is afraid, afraid of being lonely, of being alone, or if Anna doesn't love him like he does. Thus, he tries his best by keep on giving hints on her that he loves her but you know girls being girls, she didn't really realize it. She thought that it's just maybe only because he is lonely that Ellie is not around her. How could us, girl know that you(guy) have to feel on us, how could us know that? Please do tell us directly because me, myself don't know and realize it. hahaha No, serious talk, I don't know about it. How about you, girls?

Anyhow, the books cover, itself has the romantic feelings, hence, the stories, its very romantic. Very lovely. I won't spoil it too much, just grab one and read it! :)

p/s: I'm currently reading Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins!
