Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
My real life friend Dana over at Little Lovely Books wanted us read and review a book together so this is the book she chose.
Now, I tend to pick and read a book based on the cover and title. Gasp! I know! But I like to be surprised by the story and sometimes the back gives away too much information and ruins the fun. If you have never read a book like this, you should try it! So, based on the cover, I expected there to be lots of French Kissing in it. Yeah, not so much *rolls eyes* I did not realize this was a Young Adult book. LOL. I thought it was a Romance!The joke was on me and Dana and I had MANY laughs over this one!
So aside from the hilarious let down about the title, I thought this was a good book. The plot was good although I DID find it to be a little slow at times. Watching the relationship grow between Anna and St. Clair was fun and exciting. There were ups and downs in their relationship so it was pretty realistic (although there was not any French kissing. Just sayin' LOL)
For a Young Adult, I thought this was a great book. For an adult who reads Romance, it was a little bit of a letdown but it was still good and I am very glad that Dana suggested I read it. I DO like to try new things now and then! Now I need to make her read a REAL Romance book. Anyone have any ideas? I need a good one!!! hmmm.........
