Road Trip Wednesday: Kissy Kissy


Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ from
YA Highway where each week there is a writing- or reading-related question for us to answer. Check out YA Highway to follow along with everyone who participates. :-)

This week's topic is:

Compare your first kiss with your favorite characters first kiss. 


My current favorite kiss is between Charlotte and Harlin from A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young. I finished this book last week and I still can't get it out of my mind. Their first kiss of the book is barely a graze but sets the tone for their relationship. Sexy. Harlin is sexy. Their love is sexy. Their kisses are sexy. Just sexy.

And that means that my first kiss couldn't possibly be more different from their kisses. My first real kiss was a sneak kiss. My seventh grade boyfriend and I sneaked away during a church event at his neighbors house and kissed in *blushes* his bedroom. Now, I'm not saying it was terrible, because it wasn't, but it definitely wasn't sexy. Neither of us knew what we were doing and it was all over the place messy. And quick. So, yeah, I guess as far as first kisses go, it wasn't as bad as it could have been, but sexy it was not.

  2. Aw, your first kiss sounds so cute. Mine was with the guy who became my first boyfriend. I was 18 (I know, so old for a first kiss) and he was drunk and smelled like cigarettes. It was, to put it nicely, disgusting.

  10. That sounds like a really cute story. :) I like when authors balance the 'sexy' with the 'sweet' in novels. It's always exciting to read.

  11. Love your first kiss story. It's cute and awkward and a little silly--everything a real first kiss should be.
