Kiss and Tell is a feature about kisses in books. First kisses and good-bye kisses. Gentle kisses and angry kisses. Sensual kisses and awkward kisses. Kisses, that made me swoon, and kisses, that made me lift my eyebrow. Kisses, that made me smile and kisses that made me cry. Get ready, I’ll tell you about all of them.
When I started this feature, I declared that it would be about all kinds of kisses. Well, so far I only highlighted beautiful kisses. It’s time to shake things up a little. Today I want to quote a gloriously awkward kiss.
“‘Are you sure about this?’ I asked, meaning was she sure we should be in this room but she said, ‘Yes, I’m sure,’ and she kissed me.
I was a bit gobsmacked, to be honest. I’ve never really had a proper kiss before. I’m not sure how to describe it really. It was sort of … meaty. She was almost chewing my lips. Without breaking off, I put the bottle down on the table behind me and started chewing right back.”
from ‘Boys Don’t Knit (in Public)’ by T.S. Easton
Boys Don’t Knit is such a lovely and funny “make-you-feel-good” story. It’s on a youngish side of YA, but I’m sure both teenagers and adults would enjoy this book.
