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.

Standalone Young Adult Tearjerker Romance.

I loved this book. Even though it was a young adult book, the story of Poppy and Rune and there love is ageless.

God. This book was devastating yet so beautiful. The love Rune and Poppy had for each other was so pure and real gripping your heart and forever leaving their stamp on it. Truly “as special as special can be.” The scene with the cello was so heart-wrenchingly beautiful. It warmed my heart while shattering it into a thousand pieces. Amazingly written. I cried their entire adventure. The end was perfect. It was worth the devastation. True love prevails “forever always.” ??

I was told this is an "ugly cry book" and to have plenty of tissues ready. Boy was that a bunch of hooey! This book is mediocre at best.

There truly aren’t enough starts to rate this book but I guess five will have to do. One day as a small child, Rune moves next door to Poppy and the rest as they say is history. Throughout the years they form an unbreakable bond. But, unfortunately life has other plans. This book is not for the faint of heart. I cried from chapter one all the way through to the end and for hours after. This story was so beautiful and heartbreaking and told with such grace and maturity. A thousand boy kisses is not a book I believe I will ever recover from.

Live Beautifully. I’m not sure I can write a review that can justify this story. But I sure will try. I was going through a rough patch of books. I was reading really good stories but they weren’t touching me in a way that I wanted. The characters weren’t connecting as I would've liked. I read books, I review, It’s just what I do. I was lost.  But then, while reading another book, I wasn’t connecting with any characters. The story was ok but it wasn’t that great, to be honest. So I said to myself, Life is short. I’m going to read A Thousand Boy Kisses. See if it will touch me as it has everyone whose read it.  Let me just say, it was more than I had expected. It was the most beautiful story I’ve read in a really long time. It’s a timeless romance that would top Noah and Allie. Through all these years no one could top those two. I just know that if it was turned into a movie. It would be the #1 romance.  At just 34% I was crying, nose sniffling, ugly crying. I was glad that I was by myself. I could just feel this love and connection they had deep in my chest. The ache for Poppy and Rune. Just like the book, it’s the moments that we capture. The moments you can’t go back to but relive in your memory.  A Thousand Boy Kisses, is a story full of heart. A heartbreaking melody. I loved Poppy, she was so full of life. She loved life, she wanted to live and see the sunrise. She loved Rune more than anything in the world. And Rune loved her more than anything. I fell in love with these two. I felt so much reading this story. I laughed at times as well, it’s not a depressing story. So don’t think it is. It was so much more....Lissa

I guess I should have assumed by the title, but this book was definitely written for a younger crowd. (Probably 13-15 year olds) The story is just too...girly. And unrealistic. They are so in love from the second they meet. The language is obnoxious. People don't talk like that to each other. Especially 15-year-old kids. I only bought it because it was under $5. I only finished it because I bought it. It was listed under new adult romance, but it doesn't compare at all to say, Colleen Hoovers books. I think it should be young adult rather than new adult, if not in the children's section.

Had me sniffling tears galore... Never cried so much from a book before. It was absolutely beautiful and heartwarming. Also tragic and overwhelmingly sad.

I have never cried so much from a book in my life. It was so amazingly beautiful that I couldn't put it down. I love how Poppy was so strong when she had every known reason to break down. This is easily one of my favorite books that I'll often re-read. Thank you so much for the opportunity and for writing this book so amazingly.

3.5 Stars Reviewed by Suzanne and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog Poppy and Rune have been best friends since they were 5 years old and the irrepressible little girl offered to take Rune on her adventures. From that day they are inseparable and their friendship turns in to more as they grow up and they can’t imagine life without each other. And then at 15 Rune and his family have to leave, go back to Norway and they are separated, but no not even distance could weaken their bond. Only, once Rune is away, Poppy cuts him off without explanation. Two years later Rune returns, angry and hurt, only to realise that more heartbreak is in his future. I’m on a quest this year to stretch my comfort zone and read things I would normally pass by. A Thousand Boy Kisses is exactly the kind of book I would normally dismiss and never think of again, so I decided to pick it up and give it a try – the beautiful cover helped of course. I still can’t decide if I made a mistake or it it was a brilliant decision. This book cut me up, I couldn’t put it down until I knew exactly what was going to happen, even though I knew, I needed to read it happening. Basically, I was a sobbing mess and I lay the blame fully on Tillie Cole. I am trying to write this review without giving away spoilers, so I would read this with caution if you don’t want a hint of what happens. I loved Poppy and Rune together, they were sickeningly adorable, both when they were kids and then when they were teenagers. I really wish it could have stayed that way, as despite my normal stoic and cynical reaction to over the top sentimentalism this book broke my heart a little. Seeing both of them cling to one another and draw strength from the other in the most awful of circumstances brings a lump to my throat, even now, a week after I have read the book. However, despite all these feelings this book evoked in me and I know what I am about to say is skeptical and possibly insulting people’s bravery. I found Poppy’s complete acceptance and optimism with her awful situation jarring. It didn’t seem real, even if she had expected the inevitable I wanted to feel some anger or regret or something from her. Something that made her more real to me, in the end I found I couldn’t connect and emphasise with her as I found her attitude too good to be true. It was Rune, his anger and his complete agony that I connected with more. It was his reactions, his trying to be a brave front on a cracked facade that had me howling in tears. If you want a book that is going to make you cry, then you need to pick this up, it is a touching story which plays gleefully on your heartstrings. If you want a book with a cut and dried HEA, steer clear, this isn’t for you. But, it manage to touch my otherwise cynical heart, even if it was, in places, a little too sweet for my tastes.

I read it one sitting, I ignored everything. The world didn't want to let me go and I let it hold me hostage. What a wonderfully sad story.

This is an absolutely amazing book, that literally broke my heart. The characters and emotions are so genuine and deep that you find yourself hurting and loving with them. This is a definite rare gem of modern literature. * keep kleenex close by.
