Kisses and Croissants
There’s something about reading books set in Paris that make falling in love so fun! I’ve never actually been to Paris but I can imagine how romantic and magical it can be. Mia is a dedicated ballet dancer who lands a spot in an elite ballet summer program in France! It’s there she meets the gorgeous and charming French boy, Louis. He goes on to show her that there’s more to life than just ballet. I adored Kisses and Croissants from the very beginning. Mia is down to earth and easy to identify with. I loved the art, the story surrounding Mia’s ancestors, and loved watching Mia and Louis fall in love. The story is so sweet and romantic! I couldn’t put it down. I’m no ballet dancer and I don’t keep up with the latest when it comes to it, but even I know that they work extremely hard to get where they are. It’s such a beautiful form of art; I loved being able to see it from a dancer’s POV. The best part of the whole entire book though is the female relationship. A female character starts off as a sort of nemesis but ends up being so much more in the end. We need that! We need more positive girl friendships in YA. Overall, I’m in love. I need more books set and Paris. Not to mention I need to take an actual trip there!
