Want Books: Anna and the French Kiss

Want Books? is a weekly meme hosted here at Chachic’s Book Nook and features released books that you want but you can’t have for some reason. It can be because it’s not available in your country, in your library or you don’t have the money for it right now. Everyone is free to join, just grab the image above. Leave a comment with a link to your post so I can do a roundup with each post.

I have a serious case of book lust for Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. It seems like everyone’s reviewing/reading it! I already dropped by the local bookstore and it’s still not available over here. I wanted to order the Kindle edition but Amazon says it’s not available for Asia. *shakes fist* So I can only wait and watch by while the rest of you read it. It’s great to know that I have a YA contemporary novel to look forward to though. And it looks like Stephanie Perkins has two companion novels in the works. More to get excited about!

Here’s the summary from Stephanie Perkins’ website:

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.

What about you, what book is in your wishlist? 🙂

    • It’s actually funny because I never get used to being left out even though it happens all the time. 😛 Yes, I just have to look forward to reading it. Good thing I still have some good books on my pile.

      Speaking of good books, I really want to get copies of the Aussie edition of Dash & Lily, Graffiti Moon and Six Impossible Things.

  1. I really want this book too! And I don’t read contemporary YA (or at least never have). That is going to change soon as I’m picking up Saving Francesca from the library tomorrow. I’m looking forward to trying out a new for me genre.

    • Brandy, I wonder why you don’t read contemporary YA? Oooh let me know what you think of Saving Francesca, I really liked that one but my favorite Marchetta is still Jellicoe Road so I hope you get to read that as well. 🙂

      • I don’t read a lot of any contemporary fiction. Fantasy and historical has always been more my thing, even as a kid. I have several YA contemporary novels on my TBR list but they always seem to get pushed aside for new fantasy or historical titles.

        I have heard such good things about Melena Marchetta’s writing I’m really looking forward to reading her books. I have 3-4 other books to read before getting to Saving Francesca but at least it is in my house now!

      • Hmm come to think of it, I think I only started reading contemporary fiction when I started this blog. Before that, I mostly read fantasy. I think it was mostly because I got a lot of good recommendations from fellow bloggers. It’s hard to pick good contemporary YA, most books don’t stand out because there’s nothing new about them.

        I’ve read all the three Marchetta contemporary YAs that are out right now and they’re really good. 🙂 I hope you enjoying reading them! LOL I know the feeling of having several books lined up.

Comments are like chocolate. :) Maraming salamat / thank you!
