SYNOPSIS

 

thumbnail_Kisses and Croissants

As sweet as a macaron from Laduree, with writing as crisp as a freshly baked baguette, this romantic novel set in Paris about an American ballerina and a charming French boy is parfait for fans of American Royals and Netflix’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.

Seventeen-year-old Mia, an American girl at an elite summer ballet program, has six weeks to achieve her dreams: to snag an audition with one of the world’s best ballet companies. But there’s more to Paris than ballet—especially when a charming French boy, Louis, wants to be her tour guide—and the pair discover the city has a few mysteries up its sleeve.

In the vein of romances like Love and Gelato, this is the perfect summer adventure for anyone looking to get swept away in the City of Love.

My Review:

“I thought I wanted this more than anything else; then my life took a different path, and it was perfect. This isn’t about missing chances. It’s about enjoying the journey. You should pursue your dream for as long as you want to, but you should also allow yourself to change dreams along the way.”

Ballet books in YA Literature wasn’t something that I thought I would enjoy. That all changed after I read Bright Burning Stars. My life was revamped after that and now I’m obsessed. So when I read that this was about being the best ballerina and that it took place in the city of love, I was sold.

Bright Burning Stars meets Anna and the French Kiss in this unforgettable book about being the best you and opening yourself up to new experiences.

Mia gets accepted to a prestigious ballet program in Paris for the summer. Being the perfect ballerina is her whole life, so she accepts this opportunity. Her goal in life is to turn this into a career and nothing is going to stop her or get in her way. Not even her indifferent Mother will change that.

All of this changes when she meets an adorable French boy named Louis. Together they discover that Paris holds some secrets and they are determined to solve each and every one. Can Mia keep her eyes on the goals she has had her entire life? Or will she let a boy change her future?

Mia was a character that you instantaneously connect with as she makes her first appearance. She’s strong, has a lot of heart, and is determined. Mia and and I share a very common thing when it comes to our Mother and I think that helped me grow closer to her character. Both of our Moms want to hold us back and not fully support our decisions in life, that makes Mia so much more stronger. She sets out to be her own person and not someone her Mom wants her to be.

The scenery was stunning. The way the author describes everything, you feel as if you are there right along with Mia and watching from the front row. It was mesmerizing. The story that follows was just as memorable.

Kisses and Croissants was absolutely sweet and cute with a lot of determination. It had a lot of strong characters and the cutest boys. It was all very swoony and unforgettable. Everything had depth and took you deeper under the surface. The story was one you can’t help but fall in love with.
