Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week's pick is Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, coming December 2 from Dutton Juvenile.

Summary:


Anna was 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. So she's 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? Stephanie Perkins keeps the romantic tension crackling and the attraction high in a debut guaranteed to make toes tingle and hearts melt.

My Thoughts: First, the cover is cute. Eye catching but most likely very fitting of the book, it's one that would grab me on a shelf. Second, Étienne St. Clair is one of the best character names I've seen in awhile- so good I might not even end up giving him an endearing adjective-boy name like I do most. Third, I dig the French setting. Fourth, it's a romance and lately, I've been feeling them. Basically, I've heard good things already and this one looks great. Now if I can figure out how to make December get here faster I'm set.

  8. This sounds great. There aren't enough book set in Paris - lots in NYC and London, but not Paris.
