I am so excited for the release of 'Anna and the French Kiss'. It's out in the UK on December 2nd and I have it preordered on Amazon already! It's the first book from debut YA author Stephanie Perkins, who promises that it will feature lots and lots of KISSING!
Goodreads synopsis: Anna was looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. So she's less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris — until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all . . . including a serious girlfriend.
But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss? Stephanie Perkins keeps the romantic tension crackling and the attraction high in a debut guaranteed to make toes tingle and hearts melt.
On Stephanie's website, one reviewer describes it in the following way:
"Imagine a mug of rich, thick hot chocolate. Now add a swirl of sweet whipped cream. Yummy? Oui. Well, Anna and the French Kiss is richer, sweeter, and—yes—even hotter. You're in for a very special treat."
Now, how can anyone resist that?!
I'm super excited for this novel because Stephanie has an amazing blog on her website which I regularly read and through which she shares her love of super-gorgeous British men. It's one of the first places I check each day when I go online.
Yet another lovely YA cover:
Even better, she also has another pending novel 'Lola and the Boy Next Door'. So if you like 'Anna' you have something else to look forward to.
