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.

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!!

What in the cheesy is this?

At first the story was really good. I like a good love story and this was was kind of sad. But then more then story progressed the cheesier it got. The ending angered me! Wth! Just unrealistic and (spoiler alert) how the hell did he die? I’m aggravated.

My heart completely burst!

Oh my GOD! This book wrecked me! My heart completely burst!
I knew what I was getting into reading this book. I wanted something different and this book... I cried like a baby. It was true and raw emotion. Every page was perfection. The duo narration was spot on! Not only did I read this book but I also listened to the audio. I HAD to.
Rune & Poppy were everything a book couple could be.
Poppymin, Rune's endearment for Poppy. (My Poppy) Ahhh be still my heart.
These are two kids who instantly become best-friends. They grow together and fall in love. The kind of love that lasts a lifetime. Unfortunately their time together is short lived as the unfairness of life hits them hard.
So prepare yourselves for a good old cry. Grab them tissues and read on.
I'd totally read this book again & again. Its sweet and utterly heartbreaking.

And my heart nearly burst...

Oh holy mother of all that is holy!!! This book seriously deserves so many more than 5 stars. A Thousand Boy Kisses is a book filled with so much love, adoration, heartbreak, angst, sorrow and iron clad proof that there is such a thing as a once in a lifetime love.
If you don’t mind bawling your eyes out and having your heart ripped to pieces little by little, grab this book now!! If you do mind tear jerkers, just read it anyway, everyone needs to read thing book!

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!!!!

One star bc I had to put it

I’m sorry but this was actually the worst book. First of all the accents were awful and made it unbearable to listen to the story. The story could’ve gotten better if they hated each other longer and built the drama but that lasted like 2 minutes.

Absolutely awful

Extremely cheesy. Ending was very rushed and horrible. The plot was fine but the way the story was created was not good.

Best love story of all times

I cannot sing the praises of this book enough. It is the best love story I have ever read. The performance only enhanced the story. Be prepared to ugly cry for sadness, happiness and all of the emotions. I recommend this book to everyone.
