it was amazing
Read in March, 2012

Is it possible to be anymore absolutely in love with a book than I am with Anna and The French Kiss? The answer is easy.
Oh heck no.

This book was adorably fabulous. I loved it in every conceivable way. All of the characters contributed something that was very needed in the book.
The friends were not stereotypical; they were fun, and - get this - actually interesting human beings! *Everyone gasps*
Sure, there was loads of cheese. And though I am normally lactose intolerant, it was some damn good cheese.

So the verdict is simple.
Read it.
It's adorable and hilarious and easy to read, what else do you need?

....Oh, and P.S., I am utterly in love with Étienne St. Clair. Pathetically. "Oh, please take me to Point Zero, Étienne!" in love. *Sighs in exasperation*

Kaitlyn Agreed!

Martha And the ending most definitely did nothing to help that!

Kallan ok how could anyone NOT be in love with étienne st. clair? he's freaking amazing!!!!!!

Martha You should!
It's the best book I could recommend if you want a light, funny, romantic read. :)

Alex I'm reading this right now, and it's AMAZING. The cover kinda threw me off, I had no idea what it was about until I watched a review on it. Why did I listen to the voice in my head that said don't get it, it has a bad cover.:(

Martha Alex: Eeeep! So happy you're loving it! I completely adored it myself, and trust me, it only gets better! :]
I was wary of the cover as well, but after you finish reading it, you'll even love the cover just because you don't want to dislike a single thing about the brilliant book. :]

Alex I finished it last night. I stayed up until 1:30 in the morning to finish it. You're right, I don't want to dislike this book, IT WAS FANTASTIC.

Laura Elisa Now i want to read this! Really bad:O i sa the cover in a bookstore like a couple of months ago and i just ignored it! I think i made a mistake :O thanks for the review:D

Martha The most common mistake, assuredly. It is the single most adorable book I have ever read. Anna's voice, along with the rest of the characters' voices, was incredibly strong. I don't come across that too often, so I highly treasure them when I am lucky enough for their beautiful presence to waltz onto my bookshelf.
