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.


  1. I loved when Prince Gaius and Princess Cleo finally kissed in Gathering Darkness but loved the one in Frozen Tides.

  2. I love when Noah and Mara finally REALLY kiss in the Evolution of Mara Dyer
