When she is not writing, Tillie enjoys nothing more than curling up on her couch watching movies, drinking far too much coffee, while convincing herself that she really doesn’t need that extra square of

Write down where you were when you were kissed. You'll have a treasure jar of all the precious kisses that made your heart soar.

Tillie Cole is one of my favorite authors. She’s absolutely and wonderfully skilled at winning me over with her stories. I think she has some secret ninja skills that help her play with my emotions and tug at my heartstrings. She just made me weep for hours and hours. I think my eyes are still a little bit puffy. Now I desperately need someone to hug me! My poor, poor heart..

How to describe the experience of reading A Thousand Boy Kisses without giving away everything? I’m not sure I’m capable of that! I feel like I’m a second away from bursting and spilling EVERY. SINGLE. DETAIL. That book just made me feel so much and I have this strange urge to share all of thoughts and feelings it had evoked.

On the other hand, I would commit a serious bookish crime if I decided to spoil this story for you. It’s best to go into Poppy and Rune’s world without any additional knowledge (beside what was mentioned in the blurb) and slowly sink into this romantic, poignant coming of age story. So although I’m itching to write more about them I will not overshare (though it seriously kills me!).

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

I loved the main characters. Seeing them grow, fall in love, share their ups and downs, it was all an amazing experience. The Dual point of view helped me understand Poppy and Rune better, it also made this story richer, more intricate and mixed with Tillie’s fabulous writing, it was a complete winner. I think I highlighted most of the book.

"It was so special that my heart almost burst."

A Thousand Boy Kisses is a special story and will definitely stay with me for a long while. It’s a young adult novel (I rarely read them anymore), but at the same time it’s very complex and mature (don’t be afraid to give it a chance just because you consider YA novels to be juvenile/frustrating/immature);

In this case the book is sweet and heart melting where it needs to be, and completely wrecking, gritty and angsty in other parts.

Tillie once again managed to mix sweetness with real hard life and created something so vivid, true and meaningful that I am still very much trembling from the emotions overload.

‘Rune pressed a kiss just below my ear and whispered, “Sleep, baby. I got you.” And he did. He had me. Just like I had him.’
