Confessjons 09, Jocelyn rated it it was amazing Shelves: Kissing turns out to be way more complicated than the romance novels would have you believe. This book was written by the same author as Flipped which was so cute. The longer I read about Evangeline, the less I cared for her.
On top of that, it was evident that the author was going for sassy humor. And worst of all: I read it in one sitting and felt very satisfied at the end. I had expected something good srrial this because of Flipped Which you should totally readbut this book fell short on that.
They were things that were missing in my real life. This chicklit title can’t decide whether it wants to be an outrageous comedy like the Louise Rennison “Georgia Nicholson” series, or be a more serious story about divorce, communication and relationships.

I had an expectation of what the book would be like but then, reality hit me. I haven’t always been a serial kisser. But if you kissed a person you thought was interested in you, would you let it go if they didn’t at least explain why they acted like they were interested in the first place? We just don’t see them.
Evangeline is losing herself, drowning herself in this quest for the perfect kiss. But the focus is split–and not just in two. This book keeps you on your toes because you never know who Evangeline will go after next.
Jan 15, Katie rated it really liked it. A spectacular, heart-stopping, life changing kiss. Everyone has had at least one of the experiences that Evangeline did. Plus, there’s a huge psychological element about the ways in which people may act out or search for love in all the wrong places when a relationship falls apart.
I understood the humor and everything that is going on in the book. Excluding her apparent wonderful plan in obtaining a crimson kiss through various means…I really enjoyed reading about her. It was pretty fun and I use the term lightly sometimes, but if you’re expecting something like Flipped Girls do not deserve that.

No one is that stupid in real life. In which she continuously fantasized for, so she decided to take a leap for her search mission with another help of a book, “Live your Fantasy”. A lot of teens kissing it was the premise of the book after allbut no sexual situations.
Return to Book Page. I just shoved her books back under her bed and escaped to my room with A Crimson Kiss. Though it is funny at times and a fast read, its flaws will prevent it from becoming as well loved as Van Draanen’s Flipped.

Give them the opportunity to read fun books that interest them because if kissrr always seems like homework, they will quickly get turned off. In conclusion, who wants to read a cheesy book about a stupid high school drama queen who only wants to have the perfect kiss?
Lists with This Book. It was fun to see the mostly funny spin on how unrealistic and silly but sometimes necessary romance novels. The girl does not get the guy well, not that girl and not that guybut it ends happily for everyone — even the thousands ok, I exaggerate of guys bewildered by Evangeline the one-kiss-wonder.
Book: Confessions of a Serial Kisser
Evangeline starts out by planning her kissing rendezvous, but eventually resorts to just taking what she wants without thinking of the consequences. I could though relate to school events confeswions activities. These consequences get Evangeline in to hot water with the school, her grades, and her best friend.
I probably wouldn’t let my young teen read this, because do young teens really need ideas put in their heads about kissing? It was interesting, funny, and honest.
