Question of the Week: How do you cure a book hangover/blogging slump/reading slump? 

I don't really have a cure for reading slumps. I tend to just luckily find a book that helps me out of the reading slump.

Waiting on Wednesday #5

The Last Star (The Fifth Wave #3)

Author: Rick Yancey
Publish Date: May 17 2016

Goodreads Summary
We’re here, then we’re gone, and that was true before they came. That’s always been true. The Others didn’t invent death; they just perfected it. Gave death a face to put back in our face, because they knew that was the only way to crush us. It won’t end on any continent or ocean, no mountain or plain, jungle or desert. It will end where it began, where it had been from the beginning, on the battlefield of the last beating human heart.

Master storyteller Rick Yancey invokes triumph, loss, and unrelenting action as the fate of the planet is decided in the conclusion to this epic series.

I'm still on the first book, though, I'm loving it so far and can't wait for the third book!

How did you come up with your blog title and address? Does it have a special meaning for you?

I'm not very creative when it comes to naming things, so I just thought of the first thing that came to my head, which was originally "Paper Book Lust." After a few more days, I decided to go with "Paper Selections!"

Feel free to leave links to your FF & I'll definitely follow back!

Review: Anna and the French Kiss

(Anna and the French Kiss #1)

Author: Stephanie Perkins
Pages: 372
Release Date: December 2, 2010
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile

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.

But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss?

My Thoughts
I loved this book! After reading this book, I decided to pick up on reading more contemporary books. Initially, I thought this book was gonna be really cheesy and sappy since the title has "French Kiss," but after seeing this book everywhere, I decided to give in and I'm really glad I read it! It was addicting to read and I finished it in one sitting.

This book was insanely adorable and it was a cute read! The story line was perfect and the writing style just flowed throughout the book; there were no dull moments. The book takes place in Paris after Anna's father ships her off to the School of America, where she befriends the extremely gorgeous, Étienne St. Clair.

I loved the dialogue and all the characters. Their friends played a major part in this book. They all had flaws and made mistakes, which made it seem realistic to me. Anna is sarcastic and funny.  I really liked her attitude throughout the book and she just seemed realistic to me. My favorite character in this book is Étienne St. Clair— a half-French, American with a British accent. He was incredibly sweet, smart, and swoon-worthy. He's described as short, but he's beautiful. I just kept GUSHING over him in this book!! Who wouldn't somebody like Étienne. Even his name is perfect to me!

I really enjoyed this book and like how the character's relationship progressed through it. Anna's and St. Clair's relationship was just perfect to me! This book made me want to be sent to a boarding school in Paris. I really recommend this book to readers! Don't just turn this book down because of the title or cover, like how I initially did!

Favorite Quote(s)
"Because I was right. For the two of us, home isn't a place. It's a person. And we're finally home."

Rating:★★★★★ (I LOVED IT!)
