I love books and am an avid reader. I'm 23 years old and hail from central Texas. I work as an emergency and 911 dispatcher and books often help me unwind after a rough day at work.

I love all genres of books and am always looking for my next read so I love suggestions!

GoodReads 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 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?

My Review:

There is so so so much about this book that I love. its incredibly sweet and such an accurate example of falling in love.

This book is like being presented with a basket full of the cutest kittens you have ever seen and then being told you get to keep them all but only if you keep the dashing Englishman who delivered them too.

Its perfect in so many ways. Every character has their faults and flaws, and the author isn’t afraid of letting you see them. In fact, she uses them effectively. Doubt, miscommunication, hypocrisy, impulsive behavior… Its all in here, caught up in this whirlwind of romance in Paris of all places.

The characters are all human, immensely so, and I think thats what really brings it all home for me. You know?

I am definitely adding this to my list of books to read when I’m feeling down or just need a good fluffy story.

Finished this book in about four and a half hours.

Loved every second of it.

My Rating: 5.00
