Top Ten Books for People Who Liked Anna and the French Kiss
hosted over at the Broke and Bookish
Anna and the French Kiss is one of my all-time favorite reads (review here) and so I thought I'd put together a list of books that I enjoyed just as much as Anna--books that gave me a great satisfied and happy feeling after I finished. Keep in mind, though, that I'm assuming you've already read Lola and the Boy Next Door!
So, without further ado, here's my list in no particular order...
by Rachel Hawkins
Suuuuper hilarious and the main character is relatable and awesome as Anna.
Also, there is a very, very hot boy...y'know, just in case that's an incentive.
by Jessica Park
Another humorous story with an awesome heroine and a motley gang of great side characters--who you'll LOVE.
by Miranda Kenneally
A tad sports-oriented, but no worries if you're not a football fan--I wasn't and I still really enjoyed the story!
by Jillian Dodd
This book is SO cute and hilarious and everytime I think about it, I just wanna give it a big fat hug!
LOVE this book. You can check out my review here
by Huntley Fitzpatrick
This is a fantastic summer read! I was worried it'd be a little cheesy and clichéd, like Anna, but once again, I was proven so, SO wrong.
And as was the case with Anna, the boy in My Life Next Door exceeded my expectations--boy did he ever! Jase Garrett is going on my mental list of all-time favorite book boyfriends!
by Hannah Harrington
This book tackles some tougher issues than Anna, but it was such an amazing, gripping read! I absolutely could not put it down--not even for sleep! I could rave endlessly about the awesome protagonist, the best friend, the love interest, the snark, the EVERYTHING...
by Rachel Vincent
This isn't quite as chick-lit-y as Anna and the French Kiss, but I think the heroines of both novels are very similar--both super relatable, and likeable, and down-to-earth, and humorous.
So.... think of this as a paranormal Anna.
by Jennifer Echols
Jennifer Echols, like Stephanie Perkins, writes amazing relationship books and this one definitely has that quality that just makes you smile from ear to ear as you read it!
by Sophie Kinsella
This book is an adorable chick-lit that had me giggling with just about every chapter. This is gripping not in a "OMG so intense and action-packed way" but more in an "Awww I NEED to see what this character does next!"
Also, like Anna, it's got a fantastic relationship build-up
by Ally Carter
I just turn into a gushing mess when I think about this series because it is SO. DARN. GOOD. Trust me, you will love Cammie and her friends just as much as you loved Anna and her pals.
But if you ask me, the romance doesn't get REALLY good until book 2!
If you guys have any other suggestions about books like Anna and the French Kiss, please let me know! I'd love to read anything similar! And feel free to leave me links to your Top Ten picks--I'd love to check them out! :)
