Blog Tour - A Thousand Boy Kisses By Tillie Cole

One kiss lasts a moment.
But a thousand kisses can last a lifetime.

One boy.
One girl.
A bond that is forged in an instant and cherished for a decade.
A bond that neither time nor distance can break.
A bond that will last forever.
Or so they believe.
When seventeen-year-old Rune Kristiansen returns from his native Norway to the sleepy town of Blossom Grove, Georgia, where he befriended Poppy Litchfield as a child, he has just one thing on his mind. Why did the girl who was one half of his soul, who promised to wait faithfully for his return, cut him off without a word of explanation?
Rune’s heart was broken two years ago when Poppy fell silent. When he discovers the truth, he finds that the greatest heartache is yet to come.

My Review
A Thousand Boy KissesA Thousand Boy Kisses by Tillie Cole
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read most genres and I like the YA genre a lot. When I heard that Tillie Cole was going to write a YA book I was super excited. I've seriously loved everything that she has ever written and I new it would be wonderful. To be honest she could write a menu and I would still devour it lol. But I was also happy because I like to make it one of my personal missions to get people to try new things and think outside of the box. I'm hoping that this book may get readers to try other genres. You may be pleasantly surprised. You can't pigeon hole books anymore than you can people.

Anyway, lecture over. back to the book lol.

This is the story of Rune and Poppy, two childhood friends that were always meant to be. Deep down on a soul level. Their love is pure and beautiful and truly wonderful to read.

I literally went through the whole gamut of emotions reading this. This book is very emotional at times but so worth it. I sometimes have difficulty connecting with a character emotionally. I'll like them but I'm not truly invested in them. I never have this problem with Tillie Cole's characters. She has a knack of writing unbelievably well developed characters that steal your heart and take up a big place in it. You mourn their loss when you finish the book. You're desperate to finish to see what happens but at the same time you don't want to let them go. You get pulled so far in you're not aware of anything around you. This book was no exception to that. Very few authors have this effect on me and that is why Tillie Cole is in my all time top 5.

I loved this so much from start to finish. Poppy and Rune were simply stunning and I rank their story up with my favourites of all time. This is by far the best book I've read so far this year and I think it's going to take me a long time to find anything on a par with it.

I think everyone should give this a go. You don't like YA? Shame. Try it! You aren't sure about books that pull you through the emotional wringer? Still try it! lol.

I would recommend this to all. If you don't read this you are definitely missing out.
