Recommend A...Contemporary Book

Shanyn from Chick Loves Lit came up with this awesome feature for Mondays.

Shanyn says, "“Recommend A…” will have a new prompt every week, which I will have posted ahead of time on the Recommend A… page. All you have to do is Recommend with me on Mondays, following the prompt, and link me so I (and everyone else) can see what you’ve recommended!"

This week I Recommend A...Contemporary Book

Here's the summary from Goodreads:
"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. Clair: 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?"

I wholeheartedly recommend this book to everyone, I had never read that many contemporary books before this one but this book showed me how great they could be.  I laughed a lot while reading this story, there is a lot of funny going on in these pages.

My favorite quote from the book:
 "Any bloke with a working prick would be insane not to like you."..."Because, of course, of how intelligent you are.  And funny.  Not that you aren't attractive. Because you are. Attractive."...


  1. GREAT pick! Definitely a book HIGH up on my recommend list. I recommend it to everyone. It's definitely one of my top favorite contemporaries.

    If you haven't read Lola and the Boy Next Door yet, you really should. =D It's great too. Not as great as Anna, but still a favorite.

    1. Thanks, yeah I recommend it a lot too. I loved LOLA AND THE BOY NEXT DOOR too and can't wait for the third book. :)

  2. I love Anna and the French Kiss! It's actually on my Recommend A... today too! I have a feeling it's going to be popping up all over the place today. :)

    1. Nice, well I guess great minds think alike. :) It's definitely a great contemporary book because the characters just really pop off the page.


Hi, let me know what you think. Hope you enjoy the blog, I love reading each and every comment. :)
