I'm just a girl who loves reading more than life itself. A day without a book is a day gone wrong, in my opinion :) Looking forward to meeting new people, talking to them about books and spreading the bookish love!

Anna and the French Kiss

Anna and the French Kiss  - Stephanie Perkins 4.5 lovely starsHere is a book I've been meaning to read for a long, long time. But as it often is with me and books... for some reason, I didn't.Anybody cares to join me in beating myself up over that? I'm really happy that when I won a giveaway for a book of my choice from a list, I chose this one, as Anna and the French kiss was just sooo good; it was gripping, well written, with captivating characters and a sweet romance and it was just so. damn. cute! If you haven't read this one yet, I suggest you do.I think one of the best thing about this book is Anna's voice, who is both the main character and the storyteller. It is just so authentic. I felt like her voice captured the essence, behavior and 'sound' and kids that age (i.e: my age!) so it was wonderful to read the story through her eyes.Aside for that, she is a great main character. She's smart, awkward, funny, a good friend (even when she messes up), generous, a bit of a neat-freak, really attentive, sweet, strong but also weak at places. Plus, she likes writing movie reviews, which, as a reviewer myself (not a movie reviewer, though), has made me connect to her even more than I normally would.Then there is Etienne (which I have no idea how to pronounce. St. Clair is easier to say, but Etienne is Etienne, so I'll use his real name anyways), who is bloody fantastic...To read the rest of this review go to my blog; Drugs Called Books
