“I didn’t know why, but capturing moments, fascinated me. Maybe it was because all we get are moments. There are no do-overs; whatever happens in a moment defines a life — perhaps it is life.”
For those of you who are going to add A Thousand Boy Kisses to your reading list after reading this review, remember – I warned you, you will cry a lot. A Thousand Boy Kisses will leave you in a puddle of tears on more than just one occasion, and the ending? Yeah, the ending is going to hurt a lot.
I decided to read this book listening to three of my friends talk about how heartbreakingly beautiful it is, and they were correct. Everyone deserves a lot like Rune and Poppy. It’s a love that will outlast all other loves and lifetimes.
I usually stray away from YA romances as they can be a little mushy-gushy, and while A Thousand Boy Kisses has those moments, I never felt like it wasn’t genuine. I would love to see this story made into a movie/tv series, but I also know that I would need to watch it alone because my sobbing will likely ruin it for everyone else.
I have so many more things I wanted to say about this story, but I’m worried I’ll end up giving too much away. Just know that I am so glad I read this book and that Poppy and Rune’s love will stay with me for a long, long time.
I recommend you read A Thousand Boy Kisses if you enjoyed crying for hours during The Notebook, Fault in Our Stars, and A Walk to Remember.
