648#Love Note ~ [Book Review] Anna and the French Kiss

I was got into the hype of Anna and the French Kiss series last year. It's all thanks to my bibliophile friends on Twitter. They were suggesting and fangirling over this series and let's say, yeah, I fall into their evil temptation. I bought Anna and the French Kiss and the second book, Lola and the Boy Next Door from DeBook Room. Would buy the third book, Isla and the Happily Ever After after I've got this year book vouchers ;)

Can Anna find love in the City of Light?

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 Étienne St. Clair, who quickly becomes her best friend. Unfortunately, he's taken —and Anna might be, too. Will a year of romantic near misses end with the French kiss she's waiting for?

So basically Anna and the French Kiss tells the story of Anna, an American girl whose father decides to send her to Paris for her last year of high school. Anna is against the idea but she couldn't possibly against her father - even though her famous writer father makes the decision just to show her daughter is from a prestigious boarding school in City of Light. So lame.

Anna who is afraid because she doesn't speak French is determined to survive the whole year without getting a single idea about having crush on Étienne St. Clair, an American born-English speaking boy who lives in France. Cupid is on Anna's side as her roommate is Meredith, one of the member of Étienne St. Clair's circle of close friends.

If you pictured Étienne St. Clair as the hot guy who loves to be playing around girls, in a bad way - toying with them - you are wrong. What I love about all this hype of this book is Étienne St. Clair has some wicked charms and befriends other students equally. He doesn't show that he is above everyone.

I've been introduced to some movies I've never heard of. Anna dreams to become a professional movie critic so she takes the opportunity of living in Paris for a year to watch as much good old movies as possible.

Anna and the French Kiss is a light read, cheesy and full of cliches of a YA book. It's a good pick after reading a depressing book. Well, people need cliches in their life too, no?

Till then.
