Anna has everything figured out – she was about to start senior year with her best friend, she had a great weekend job, and her huge work crush looked as if it might finally be going somewhere… Until her dad decides to send her 4383 miles away to Paris. On her own.
But despite not speaking a word of French, Anna finds herself making new friends, including Etienne, the smart, beautiful boy from the floor above. But he’s taken – and Anna might be too. Will a year of romantic near-missed end with the French kiss she’s been waiting for?
Anna went to Paris because her father wanted her to even though she absolutely did not wanted to go. Anna expected for the worst but things somehow changes when she made some friends there and actually falls in love with one of them. Etienne. The only problem is he has a girlfriend. What will happen?
I really really enjoyed this book a lot. Why hadn’t i picked it up sooner. So many people have been telling me that this book is amazing and one of the best contemporary ever but i just didn’t feel the need to pick it up until recently when i have been craving for some cute romance. It is so good. LOVE IT.
It is my very first book from Stephanie Perkins and i will definitely continue with the other two books. I have heard a lot of good comments from her reader and they are definitely right.
The writing was really captivating, enjoyed every moment of it. It was a really easy read and it is perfect when you want a cute and sweet contemporary so hard. I really appreciate the progression of this book. The friendship and even relationship between the character felt really real and it doesn’t feel forced at all. The character development was really well done too, i could see the Anna changing throughout the whole book.
The plot was cute! Although its a bit cliche at times but isn’t that what is happening in almost every contemporary now? I loved so many of the scenes from the book.
Anna was really relatable to me especially when she have to order food from the cafeteria in her school. I always get nervous whenever i have to oder food from a new stall as I’m afraid i will say the wrong thing and it is really embarrassing.
Eitenne aka St Clair was made into this perfect guy that every girl wants. I feel like in every book review i am always saying how the guy is perfect ❤ In some parts of the book i felt really annoyed with him as things are not going well between him and Anna because he have a girlfriend.
The ending was PERFECT. I can’t wait to get the next book and start reading it although it focuses on other character. Stephanie Perkins is so good at writing romance contemporary really. I recommend this book to everybody who is looking for something cute and sweet.
