T'was simply swoon-tastic

Drinking Starbucks and Reading the last bits of Anna and the French Kiss!

Finally got my hands on this fantastic summer 2012 read. The 4 weeks wait was not 4 weeks after all. I went into the bookshop and I was just looking at the book arranged right at the entrance of the bookshop Kinokuniya when something caught my eye. I gasped and screamed for my friend and I picked up the book and started jumping! Yes you may think, I am exaggerating a tad bit, but no, this is the drama queen you are talking about, therefore no exaggeration at all. A school girl beside me smiled and said, “great book”! Wow, another reader who thought this book was great! More the reasons to buy it
I first heard about this book when I stumbled upon a YouTube book vlogger giving it a high rating. But she was not the only one! Most of the youtube book vloggers absolutely loved this book and raved about the fantastic plot! I have been desperately trying to get my hands on this book ever since and it has been amazing to be able to read finally in the summer.

Plot summary
Anna is a American senior in high school and is forced to attend a boarding school in Paris for her last year! Annoyed and Glum that she has to leave her best friend and heart- throb crush behind, Anna reluctantly goes to Paris! Only to find out that perhaps moving to Paris was the best thing that ever happened to her! And yes the best thing comes in the form of a English/French gorgeous looking boy who she happens to have a thing for! But sadly he is in a serious relationship! (cue in music: dam dam dam!) This story follows Anna’s journey in Paris- as she transforms from an outsider into a true blue Parisien who finally realizes that she is living in the City of Romance!

My thoughts:
You know the kind of book that makes you laugh, cry, gasp, yell and curse regardless of where you are reading the book? Well Anna and the French falls in that category! It is the type of book which makes you desperate for more! I was reading this in Starbucks the other day, and I said “oh no!” (a bit too loudly) and a few heads turned in my direction! I could not help it!
I have this habit ( bad?) of taking a long time to finish the book just so that I live in the characters’ world for a while longer! I do not want the book to END!!!I could have finished this book in a night, but I kept prolonging it. I finished it in three days! I wanted it to be longer! And now, I am suffering from withdrawal symptoms. BOOHOO!

I recommend this to:
Again, highly recommended- for those who love a swoon-tastic love story!
