Book review for Anna and the French Kiss, by Stephanie Perkins
Anna's dad sends her away to a Paris boarding school for her senior year. Far, far away from her mother, brother, best friend, and crush in Atlanta. While in school, she makes new friends within the first week. This group also includes Étienne St. Clair, who becomes her best friend, but she might like him as more. However, he has a girlfriend, and Anna has a confusing relationship at home. So can the relationship happen?
I LOVE THIS BOOK. IT IS PERFECTION. I love St. Clair. And the story. And everything. Easily one of my favorite contemporaries ever. This is my first Stephanie Perkins book, but it most certainly won't be my last. 5/5
Andie's father is a politician, and that job has taken over his life. He doesn't have a relationship with his daughter, and hasn't since Andie's mom died. Then, out of the blue, her father gets caught up in a scam. He is removed from his political job until the case is sorted out. Because of this, Andie's summer camp recommendation letter is pulled out from the system, and she is left without a plan, for the whole summer. So she gets a job walking dogs. And she spends time with her friend. And gets a boyfriend that may last longer that the usual three weeks. So this summer had twists and turns, but you can't ever learn if you never get out of your comfort zone.
Me Before You, by JoJo Moyes
Louisa has just lost her job, one that was important to the well-being of her family. Her boyfriend is obsessed with running, and all things cross-country. And she's stuck in a tiny bedroom. Right now, there's only one problem she can fix: work. She applied for many jobs, but decides to take one for well over minimum-wage. For six months, she can take care of Will Traynor, a man that was in a car accident and is now quadriplegic. Will is not the easiest to work with, but he's tolerable. However, he brings something else to the table as well. (You'll have to figure it out for yourself)
I'm going to see this movie Friday with some friends!! Woohoo!! But this was an AMAZING book--quite possibly my third favorite (Right behind the HP series and The Selection series) of all time. I really hope you guys read, and enjoy, it. 6/5⭐️

Feyre hunts to provide for the family, since her crippled father can't. One day, while out hunting , Feyre kills a wolf that she suspected to be Fae. A few days later, a beast comes to take Feyre from her family in exchange for the Fae wolf's life. At first, Feyre blocks out the Fae man, Tamlin, but as she stays with him, they grow closer, and eventually come to love each other. Unfortunately, there is a threat to the Fae land, that only Feyre can get rid of, or else, he and other Faes are doomed forever.
I seriously enjoyed this a loooottttt!!!! This Beauty and the Beast retelling was, in my opinion, better than Cruel Beauty. The world was a little better to understand, and I connected with the characters more. I love this!! Easily one of my favortes this year 5/5
