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.
Words. How do I put into words how a book so beautifully written made me feel when I felt so many emotion? So many emotions that I cannot even possibly begin to name them all.
A Thousand Boy Kisses is so heart-breakingly beautiful that you just have to appreciate it for the story that it is. A story about life and death and appreciating the time you have.
There is purpose. It reminds us that life is short, that our breaths are numbered and our destiny is fixed, regardless of how hard we fight.
Tillie captured a young love so perfectly between Rune and Poppy. They were it for each other; no doubt about it. A young love so perfect that no other love will compare to what they had.
That moment when you know that you are loved so much, that you are the center of somebody’s world so wonderfully, that you lived … even if it was only for a short time.
This book is about living your life to the fullest not matter how long you have. There’s no time to waste being angry about things you have no control over. Love with all of your heart and live out your dreams before you lose the chance.
Though my life had been short, I had loved long. And in the end, this was enough.
