Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

A contemporary romance set in the City of Light, guaranteed to make toes tingle and hearts melt

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 √Čtienne St. Clair: perfect, Parisian (and English and American), 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've had this book on my radar for a while now and am eagerly anticipating its' release. I think it sounds like a beautiful coming of age story with plenty of romance and finding yourself. Who wouldn't want to spend a semester in arguably the most romantic city in the world?! I love the adventure of it all - throw in a little romance and I'm hooked ;)

Anna and the French Kiss is released worldwide on 2nd December, 2010 which means we're in for a bit of a wait In the meantime you can check out Steph's website here and peruse her blog. Steph is also active on Twitter and facebook. If you like the sound of this book, I urge you to add it to your Goodreads list now! If you're thinking "what the heck if Goodreads?" google it and find out ;)

One final note...Steph has blue streaks in her hair, how cool is that?!
