Waiting On Wednesday: Anna and the French Kiss

Waiting on Wednesday idea from Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Amazon.com summary:

Anna is 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. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris, until she meets Etienne St. Claire: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home.

As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near-misses end with the French kiss Anna, and readers, have long awaited?

This book has been receiving a lot of praise from other bloggers who have been lucky enough to read an early copy, and it sounds AMAZING. I hope all the hype is deserved... I have a feeling it will be. Older YA characters, boarding school in Paris and a boy called Etienne St. Claire all make it sound like it's a recipe for awesome, and December 2nd can't come soon enough!

I keep seeing this book everywhere- I am sooo excited for this one too. All the reviews have been outstanding. I definitely need to pre-order this one.

I won a copy of it and I can't WAIT to read it. Seriously, it looks like the best thing ever. As a French student, I can only imagine how much greater it will be to understand what some of the characters say in French. :p It seems like the kind of book we ALL want to fangirl over.
