I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
" I'm poppy Litchfield and you're Rune Kristiansen. This is a handshake. My mamaw told me it's what you do when you don't know somebody. Now we're friends. Best Friends"
A Thousand Boy Kisses isn’t your typical love story. Let’s just say that where love shines there is no way darkness can dwell. This was an unexpected and incredible love story. I wasn’t sure what I was in for because Tillie Cole always takes me on a ride when it comes to her stories. This has to be the only book that I’ve ever read from beginning to end that had me in a complete mess. A Thousand Boy Kisses is now my #1 all time favorite tearjerker and Young Adult story.
A Thousand Boy Kisses is told from the point of views of Rune and Poppy (I love the uniqueness of their names by the way). Rune and Poppy had a connection instantly and their story is told over a span of years. That’s all I am going to give you on this book. I want you to dive in blind just like I did. I didn’t expect the story that I got.
This story was heart-rending, gripping, emotional, a snot and ugly cry tale. Trust me, heed my warning...... I wouldn’t read this book in public if I were you. Even in the confines of my bedroom I barely kept it together…barely. Walnut ice cream, a dark space, warm bed and my box of tissues was all I needed.
Overall, this story was so much more than the blurb. The feelings attached to it will leave you thinking about life and love. The characters are sweet, loving, inspiring, brave and most of all they leave an impression on you even after reading ”The End”.
"I love you Poppymin"
