My Thoughts:

Anna and The French Kiss. I had read this book about 5 months ago I think and actually wrote the review but unfortunately some viruses attacked my laptop and all the files can’t be opened. I won’t say much about this one because I can’t recall what I had written perfecrtly. This book is amazing to me, especially for those who the students who study abroad.

When i read this book, I remember when I moved to other town for my high school for the first time. Just like Anna, I also scared that no one want to be friends with me because we have different lifestyle. But who knows that there was a girl who willingly introducing herself to Anna. She helped her to adapt and introduce her to her friends. and like common teenagers, they have friendship and love issues, too. Jealousy and misunderstanding.

I just want to say i’m lucky and glad to trust my instinct to buy this book after I read the synopsis. The story about Anna and Etienne, it was just a simple love story. Yes, the guy were described nice and charming, but unlike the other imaginary perfect guy, Etienne has a habit and well, difficult life?

This books contains such beautiful words. It wasn’t like quote words but it has meaning, like one of the piece of my favorites “.. Because I was right. For the two of us, home isn’t a place. It’s a person. And we’re finally home”
