Stephanie Perkins — Anna and the French Kiss

This book is a comfort food type of book. You know the type: warm as cinnamon rolls, sweet as lemon scones, keeps you up all night reading like a vanilla latte… I admit that I loved this book. I found it through a book suggestion on goodreads, and it was just the romantic comedy I needed after reading Delirium earlier this week.

There isn’t a lot of drama in this book. It’s an easy read, the kind of book that a girl can easily devour. Some of the reviewers said that they were looking for something more, but I wasn’t. It didn’t matter that Anna’s problems were first world problems or that there wasn’t a lot of depth. I wanted something lighthearted, something that would make me forget my problems and just smile for a while.

If you’re looking for a bunch of lovable characters, a fun plot set in Paris, and a book that will make you laugh, then this is the book for you. If you read this one and you still haven’t had enough, check out Lola and the Boy Next Door, which is book two in the Anna series. I haven’t read it yet, but it’s on my to-read list. (:
