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 Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all…including a serious girlfriend.
I love how I was able to travel along the streets, towers, and cinemas of Paris because of this book. I somehow have this love and hate relationship for the way Etienne acted. I loved how this book depicted the ‘kilig’ moments of Anna when Etienne leaves some traces of affection for her. But I also hate how he fell for someone else when he has a FREAKING GIRLFRIEND and COMMITTED. Fuck it, Etienne! You should’ve ended things first before falling for Anna! Asshole.
Some lines I loved:
- All I know is his crooked smile and his confident swaggery walk.
- But I feel his stare as if it were the heat of the sun.
- Boys turn girls into such idiots.
- When Etienne brought Anna to POINT ZERO DES ROUTES (It’s the beginning of everything)
- You only get a limited number in life. Falling Stars, eyelashes, dandelions, birthday candles.
- When St. Clair defended Anna – ‘I want Anna on my team, and you’d be lucky to have her’.
- When St. Clair confessed drunk: ‘I like you. and I don’t mean as a friend’.
- This time his grin is full and dazzling, and it catches me off guard. My heart stops.
- The only consistent bright spot was St. Clair.
- Is it possible for home to be a person? and not a place?
- The kind of person who radiates a natural magnetic field, who everyone is drawn to, who everyone is dazzled by?
- Being called Etienne rather than what all people used to call him – St. Clair.
- Will you please tell me you love me? — I’m dying here.
