Publisher's Summary

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 17-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 had 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.

A standalone young adult tearjerker romance, recommended for ages 14 and up.

    "AND MY HEART ALMOST BURST!!!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Thousand Boy Kisses to be better than the print version?

    Audio always is, but I only listened!


    What other book might you compare A Thousand Boy Kisses to and why?

    oh I just dont know this is a sad sad beautiful story!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The last one at the beach....


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    ALL OF IT!! The tears flowed....


    Any additional comments?

    This was a lovely story...tragic, and touching...and I was almost always fully engaged...BUT...there was some time in the beginning that I thought was drawn out a bit to long...and the ending left me needing more closure...like WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO RUNE? Other than that this was soooo sweet..and I loved Poppy and Rune and I shed tears of both sadness and joy...and I am glad they had a forever type of love...it was just an awful HEA ending...I mean I was like WOW...but I did enjoy this listen..and it is well worth your time and a credit!! SOB!!!!

    Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.

    Story
    "A thousand tears shed"

    I have had so many people tell me to read this book but it took Audible for me to finally break down and do it.

    I see the value in stories like this, I think there is something to learn in grief and heartbreak. I think you can't appreciate the good if you don't experience the bad. I think stories like this makes us more empathetic, sympathetic and kind.

    That being said, holy moly was this one sad. I was prepared for it to be heartbreaking and that help, which is why I am warning everyone now... Be prepared to cry!

    The narration was amazing. Both PJ and Katie seriously brought the story to life for me. Huge kudos to them!!

    Story
    "Not so much for me"

    Ok first off let me tell you that I F'Love Tillie Cole but this particular book just didn't do it for me. Yes, I cried like a big'o titty baby. W/O giving spoilers....the middle of the story until the end just didn't fulfill my mind with that feeling you get when you read a story. You know that "OMGawd this is such a good read" feel!! It just didn't do it for me. And the ending.....nope, nope, nope! Not saying that this is perfect for others but just not for me. I did spend my credit on this one and I do NOT regret it. I'm happy I was able to give it a listen!!!

    "A THOUSAND BOY KISSES IS AS SPECIAL AS SPECIAL CAN BE!!!"

    Special as special can be, that was Poppy's phrase of stating how special things are to her, and it's how special A THOUSAND BOY KISSES is on audio, so be sure and don't miss out on Poppy and Rune's love story!! The actors portraying Poppy and Rune are perfect voices for the characters and bring them to life as I would imagine listening to the real Poppy and Rune if they were alive.
    Thousand Boy Kisses is a beautiful story written by Tillie Cole, you'll laugh, fall in love with Poppy and Rune and will cry. This is a story that will live long in your heart, and a life full of MOONBEAM HEARTS AND SUNSHINE SMILES!! Enjoy POPPY and RUNE, fall in love with A THOUSAND BOY KISSES, IT IS AS SPECIAL AS SPECIAL CAN BE!!!!

    "Terrible."

    I seriously hated this book so much. The emotion was forced and redundant. Can't believe I wasted my time on it

    Story
    "A Thousand Kleenex Tissues!"
    What did you love best about A Thousand Boy Kisses?

    A thousand Kleenex tissues are what you'll need when you listen to this beautiful love story. I haven't cried this much since I read John Green's The Fault in Our Stars and before that, Nicholas Sparks' The Notebook. In fact, if you combined the spirit of the two novels you'd get A Thousand Boy Kisses.

    P.J. Ochlan (Rune) and Katie Schorr (Poppy) expertly narrate A Thousand Boy Kisses with exquisite grace and gut-wrenching passion. They breathe life into Rune and Poppy and make you love them with all your heart.

    Recently, I was asked what art is to me. I said anything (writing, painting, dancing, acting) that evokes a visceral (positive or negative) response in the person experiencing the artist's work. Well, Tillie Cole's A Thousand Boy Kisses along with Ochlan and Schorr's narration is art at its finest. And it's, as Poppy would say, "as special as special can be."
