I didn't think I would make it through this book. I cried and cried and cried and ............
This is a love story like no other and I hate/love it. God! Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!! What can I say to you people out there! My feelings are just shot! This book is so beautiful, so sad and just d••n it.
Rune and Poppy met when they were 5 years old. Rune had just moved from Norway to Georgia and he hated it until that moment he met Poppy and everything became crystal clear. He met his best friend, his soul mate. But nothing lasts forever and I sure didn't see this one coming. I had my mind set on not finishing the book because I thought when they were separated at 15 that it would be just another "oh they are apart now and lets find other people and this was all meaningless". It wasn't like that, not like that at all. Did I mention is was the most beautifully, sad love story ever!
"Rune," she said, her voice serious and strong, "you live right next door, and you're a Viking and I just love Vikings. I think we should be best friends."
"Best friends?" I asked.
Poppy nodded her head and pushed her hand further toward me. Slowly reaching out my own hand, I gripped hold of hers and gave it two shakes, like she'd shown me.
"So now we are best friends?" I asked, as Poppy pulled her hand back.
"Yes!" she said excitedly. "Poppy and Rune." She brought her finger to her chin and looked up. Her lips stuck out again, like she was thinking very hard. "It sounds good, don't you think? 'Poppy and Rune, best friends for infinity!'"
Just kill me now because you all have no idea!!!!!!!!!!!! :-(
So Poppy's mamaw died when Poppy was 8 and she left Poppy and mason jar with little hearts in them so she could collect a thousand special boy kisses. She was to write them down on the hearts and have them for a lifetime to pass down to her children.
Rune and Poppy were in the blossom grove, Rune was comforting Poppy. Then Poppy told Rune about the jar her mamaw gave to her.
He stared down at me, then at the jar. My chest hurt again; I could see he wasn't happy by the look on his face. He'd gone all moody again.
I stepped closer to my best friend, and Rune's eyes fixed on mine.
"Poppymin," he said, his voice deeper-hard and strong. "Poppymin! It means my Poppy. For infinity, forever and always. You're MY Poppy!"
I opened my mouth to shout back at him, to tell him this was an adventure I just had to start. But as I did, Rune leaned forward and suddenly pressed his lips to mine.
I froze. I couldn't move a muscle as I felt his lips against my lips. They were warm. He tasted like cinnamon. The wind blew his long hair over my cheeks. It started to tickle my nose.
Rune pulled back, but his face stayed near mine. I tried to breathe, but my chest felt funny, kind of light and fluffy. And my heart was beating so fasts. So fast that I pressed my hand over my chest to feel it racing underneath.
"You kissed me," I whispered, stunned. Rune lifted his hand to hold mine. He lowered our joined hands by his side.
"I'll give you a thousand kisses, Poppymin. All of them. No one will kiss you ever, but me."
The story tells about Rune's love for photography and how he was going to college in New York because of said photography. Poppy played the cello and was going to college in New York because of said cello. They were going to be together living their dreams. They had friends, they had each other, they had a love that could match no other. And then... I will never tell you but for the love of all that is holy, it all changed and it's the most heart breaking thing I have read in a long time!
The ending was so sad, I can't even. I just can't!!!!!!! Rune and Poppy's story ends in the blossom grove. My word of advice is to have a box of kleenex handle. I almost went through a while box myself.
If you love unbelievable love stories, because there can't be love like that in this cr•••y world, then this story is for you. If you don't really want your heart broken and stomped on then it's probably not, but read it anyway!
THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ MY REVIEW. IT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED. ♥
“She was my cherry blossom. An unrivaled beauty, limited in its life. A beauty so extreme in its grace that it can’t last. It stays to enrich our lives, then drifts away in the wind. Never forgotten. Because it reminds us we must live. That life is fragile, yet in that fragility, there is strength. There is love. There is purpose. It reminds us that life is short, that our breaths are numbered and our destiny is fixed, regardless of how hard we fight. It reminds us not to waste a single second. Live hard, love harder. Chase dreams, seek adventures … capture moments. Live beautifully.”
For those of you who have also put it off because you were too afraid to read, please take a chance. You’ll probably cry but I promise you it’s worth every tear. I will never forget this book as long as I live.
There’s a second reason, but I’m not saying why. Sorry, I don't spoil books.
With the afore mentioned in mind, there were parts- very early on- where I struggled with the age of the characters. I honestly couldn’t believe that these kids, literally, were this in-touch with their feelings and souls. Some of their conversations were deep! Don’t get me wrong, the meaning was absolutely beautiful and heartfelt, but between teenagers? I couldn’t connect, but that’s me being a picky reader.
This beautiful story between Rune Kristiansen and Poppy Litchfield was filled with heartache, secrets, love, and forgiveness. Rune definitely stole the show with his antics and sweet affections towards his Poppymin. The fact that he would move mountains and not admit his efforts was commendable and spoke volumes to how he felt about her.
It took awhile for the emotion of the story to hit me. But it came in like a wrecking ball (no Miley Cyrus puns intended) during the last 50 pages. Each chapter, every scene, was more thoughtful and emotional than the last and was totally worth the wait. The amount of tears I’ve shed in my lifetime over Tillie Cole’s books is astronomical. (And I’m still a book behind.) I seriously could’ve filled a jar with all of the tears this book took from me.

I wanted to love it but it was so cliche and I knew what was going to happen before I even turned the page.Read more
