RTW: Best Book Of September

Road Trip Wednesday Topic: What’s the best book you read in September?

 Anna and the French Kiss

I was so happy to snag a copy at ALA (thank you, thank you to the lovely woman who went routing around under tables to find me the last copy!). I saved it up for my holiday because I knew it was going to be good and I hate when you take a disappointing book on holiday.

Anna lived up to all my expectations. I LOVED it. I want to run away to Paris with it, visit the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame, wander the streets eating macaroons, then catch a movie.

Anna is a great mani character. She’s easy to relate to, funny and I can easily imagine being friends with her. While ร‰tienne is the most swoonworthy love interest I’ve encountered this year. Yay for British boys or boys with British accents.

Anna and the French Kiss is definitely one to buy, read and love forever. It’s out 3rd December but you can check out Stephanie Perkins blog now. It is nearly as adorable as her book!

A proper review to come nearer the time, but I just needed to share my love for this debut right now!

Road Trip Wednesday is a “Blog Carnival,” where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question. Join the fun here.


  1. I've heard LOTS of awesome things about this book. I'm glad you put the release date on it.


  2. GAH! This just makes me even more jealous that I haven't been able to pin down an ARC. Can't wait for December!


  3. I want to go to Paris and meet a boy with a British accent! Yes, I'm shallow. And? I've heard great things about this, so impatient!


  4. Erinn – It's so good and the perfect Christmas read too

    Sarah – Watch out for a competition here in October
    and you may not need to wait until December!

    Amie – I have the boy with the accent I just need to get to Paris ๐Ÿ™‚


  5. i can't wait for this one! actually feeling a little envious ๐Ÿ™‚

    it just looks like the perfect kind of book for me – and i love the cover.

    also, your blog just appeared in my reader. for some reason I havent been getting your feed (?)



  6. Nomes – It is wonderful!

    I know! Blogger has been being really weird and took me off goggle reader, very strange! Hopefully it is fixed now!


I adore comments, so thanks so much for taking the time. I'll try and return the favour ๐Ÿ˜€
