Book Review #110
First Kiss (Then Tell) edited by Cylin Busby
Rating: two stars (out of four)

A collection of true first kiss stories.

The idea of this book was very intriguing to me, I found it equally interesting that famous authors wouldn't mind sharing their personal experiences with the masses.  Being the nosy person that I am, I was totally for hearing their stories.  This book had a wide range of stories, some were grotesque, disgusting, sweet, pathetic, weird, sloppy, and all were unforgettable. I liked most of the stories, I thought that they portrayed reality instead of the fantasy that the world keeps trying to shove down our throats.  There were two stories that I absolutely did not care for at all, and I was slightly annoyed to see them in there and really wished that they had left them out.  Most of the stories weren't picturesque, which I thought was nice, it wasn't like the movies where everything is perfect and you felt ripped off because you knew it was so fake. These were the truth, the raw and sometimes unbearably sloppy truth.  I liked this book, but because of a couple of the stories I don't think I'd recommend it to everyone.
