I have always, always, always wanted to travel, and since I took six years’ worth of French classes, Paris has been at the top of my travel list since I was in eighth grade. So, of course, I couldn’t resist a book with this title, with this cover. I mean, come on. AND it kept showing up on all kinds of lists of top YA books.
All I want to say is that I could not have loved this book any more. In fact, I spent most of the book being completely jealous and so very happy for Anna. When I first read it, I wrote this for my Good Reads review:
I want to live inside of this book, which I think is the highest compliment I could pay to it. Love, love, love it.
I couldn’t even think of anything else to say. I was speechless! I’m planning on rereading this several times, and when I do, finally, get to go to Paris, I will be living out some of Anna’s adventures. :)
Visit the author’s webpage here: http://www.stephanieperkins.com/ and make sure you check out the companion novel, Lola and the Boy Next Door, too. It was very good as well, just not quite as magical for me because of the whole Paris thing. Enjoy!

Isn't this book just so much fun to read? I agree with you about wanting to live in that book and the hugeness of that compliment.I remember it being a bit slow for me to start, but once I got going, I had a read-a-thon and finished the last half in one sitting. I have a silly girly habit of arguing with other book friends over who gets the guy in a novel, usually the romantic interest. Needless to say, the arguing over St. Clair got pretty intense!By the way, this is my first time visiting your blog. Though it's new, I really like it. You have a few of my favorites reviewed already, I'm about to go read a few more reviews on here. :)
Thanks, Kelly! I hope you come back and visit often! :)
