A Thousand Boy Kisses by Tillie Cole

Poppy and Rune are best friends; they have been ever since Rune moved into the house next door. They’re inseparable, they do everything together and have always just been Poppy and Rune. Best friends and then partners in life.

“Two halves of the same whole.”

Rune is a Norwegian and Poppy’s very own bad boy Viking. He’s blonde and in my head I’m just in already in love with him which is slightly weird since he’s like 5 at the beginning of the book. I love Poppy’s adventurous nature and you will see a lot of their adventures in this book. The best adventures that will capture your heart and refuse to let go.

“Poppy and Rune. Two halves of the same whole. Reunited at last. When it matters most.”

As the book progresses, and Poppy and Rune are for a while separated, so much happens. This book has some moments where you are just lost for words, you can feel the emotions and you know that this book is going to take you on a journey you will not forget. I still cannot quite fully process this book and this review is pretty much a vague one because you need to experience this book through your own eyes and not mine. 

“The promise of our lips. The promise of our halved hearts. Forever always.” 

This line sums the book up for me, it is their journey through sadness, hope, happiness, kisses and love. It is an epic journey and I am so proud to have read this book blind, it is the best way.

I will not explain anymore because this book deserves to be read with the reader going in blind, it is such a powerful story of hope, love, sadness and finding that ‘forever always’ with the person who makes your heart sing with happiness and is there through all the good time as well as the bad. This book, it is a special book that will stay with me forever. A powerful tale of love, and hope. Forever always is not something you dream about, it is something you can get and keep.

Tillie, you’re an amazing writer. You deserve this book to be on bestseller lists and I just adore the fact that you wrote the story you needed to write.

I leave you with these words that sum up Poppy and Rune’s love.

“As special as special can be.”
