This has got to be the saddest book I have ever read. I cried throughout the entire book. From 70% on, I sobbed. I mean sobbed so hard that I couldn't see my kindle. Even though this book gutted me, tore my heart to shreds, I absolutely LOVED it. This was the first book of Tillie Coles' that I have read.
A Thousand Boy Kisses is a story that will stay with me FOREVER. The Epilogue, need I say more. I didn't think there was a way to rip my heart out anymore, but she managed to.
I won't give anything away about the book. All I will say is, it is a MUST read. This book will make you see the world in a different light. If Poppy can see the world as an amazing place, then so can we. Poppy was sooo smart beyond her years. She was blessed to have Rune in her life. And Rune was just as blessed to have Poppy in his. These two young soles were destined to be together from the moment they met. Their hearts were intertwined. Their soles were bound together. Nothing could tear them apart and I mean nothing. Rune was an amazing hero. Poppy.... I don't have enough words to explain Poppy. I can only say, she was simply amazing.
This is by far one of my top reads EVER. For it being a YA, Tillie knocked it out of the park. A Thousand Boy Kisses should be on everyone's TBR list. I tip my hat to Tillie, you ruined me for any other young love story. Rune and Poppy own my heart.
