Anna and the French Kiss

Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins I really liked this book. REALLY liked it. Stephanie Perkins did a wonderful job in telling a cute romantic story. I loved the fact that she used Paris as much as she could, without falling to the typical "city of love" crap. She actually described the city, not only its landmarks but the little things. I felt like I was there and she made me want to visit Paris someday.Also, she created the ultimate perfect boy. I can't really put into words how much I loved St. Clair. Perkins incorporated everything, and I mean everything, that makes me swoon in one super perfect guy. Lucky Anna that gets to keep him ¬¬That being said, there was something that bothered me quite a bit. I thought the book was really great because it had a nice story, lovely characters, great dialogues and awesome writing BUT almost at the end Stephanie Perkins unleashed the drama. 90210-type of drama and I felt it was completly unnecesary. To be honest, if she would have taken out the whole Dave and slut naming drama and just picked up where St. Clair's dad comes in I would have liked it a lot more. That's the only reason I'm giving it four stars. Oh! And I did hate that Anna seems to love every boy she lays her eyes on. Cute, romantic, a bit cliched but a really nice book to make me forget the horrors of war in Clash of Kings.
