Blog Tour: The Winner's Kiss - My Favorite Literary Kiss

It's my pleasure to be a part of the Winner's Kiss Blog Tour, where all of the tour stops are sharing their favorite literary kiss! 

Although I was tempted to use one of the kisses in Rutkoski's work (because my goodness, they are wonderful and so well written), my love for another kiss won in the end. See my choice below!  

What book is your favorite literary kiss in?
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

Who is kissing?
The main character, Macy, kisses the always swoonworthy Wes.

Why is it your favorite?
I grew up reading only a handful of authors, and Dessen was one of them. Besides Meg Cabot's Michael Moscovitz, Wes was my first fictional crush. But even setting the wonderfulness of Wes aside, this kiss always stands out to me because the girl kisses the guy. And I love that it rejects the idea of the guy initiating a kiss, and just lets the moment be a moment. Dessen describes it wonderfully!

What kiss do you hope to see in Marie Rutkoski's The Winner's Kiss?
Arin and Krestrel, of course! Although, I'd like to see Roshar kiss someone too.

I know I've been absent from the blogosphere for quite some time (grad school + teaching for the first time are both keeping me busy), but I'm hoping to start easing my way back into blogging this month. And what better way to jump back into blogging than with a post on some (mostly) recent covers?

RemembranceYESSSSSS! So this is actually an adult novel that continues the YA series....I cannot wait to see what happens next for Suze! Also, I'm loving the cover for The Raven King and Before We Go Extinct (very fun use of font). 

What are your thoughts?

Waiting on Wednesday (169): PS I LIKE YOU

WOW is hosted by Breaking the Spine

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West
July 26th, 2016 from Point

What if the person you were falling for was a total mystery?

While Lily is spacing out in Chemistry one day, she picks up her pencil and scribbles a line from one of her favorite songs on the desk. The next day, someone else has written back to her on the desk! Soon enough Lily and the mystery student are exchanging notes, and lyrics, and even sharing secrets. When Lily finds out that her anonymous pen pal is a guy, she's flustered -- and kind of feels like she's falling for him. She and her best friend set out to unravel the identity of the letter writer -- but when the truth is revealed, the guy is the LAST person Lily could have ever imagined it to be. Now that Lily knows the truth, can she untangle her feelings and gather the courage to listen to her heart?

From beloved author Kasie West (The Distance Between Us) comes an utterly charming story about mixed messages, missed connections, and the magic of good old-fashioned secret admirer notes.

West's books always tend to be charming / adorable, so I'm sure this will be a delight to read!

What are you waiting on?
