I Like it and at the end of the story i was like watda?!? See 2 questions about Kissing Kate…. Lists with This Book. Dear Kissing Kate, Why did you do that to me?
You gave me an interesting premise, decent main characters, and pretty good chemistry between the main couple something I find majorly lacking in most YA books, especially YA LGBTbut you failed in one of the laurn important areas — your subplots sucked ass. Lakren like that guy going down on his girlfriend who pulls away and refuses to continue, no matter how much she begs.
Your MC, Lisa, isn’t oauren. In fact, I kind of liked her. She’s one of the better LGBT heroines. I tried lquren Annie on My Mind.
I tried reading Empress of the World. I tried reading Keeping You A Secret. Your MC didn’t bore me! That’s the first step to making me happy reader. Now, kisskng the love interest — Kate.
Not a lot of people know this about me, but I’m a huge fan of will-they-won’t-they drama.
On this front, I was satisfied. In fact, I wanted more of Kate. I found myself skimming to get back to the Kate drama. In fact, I suspect that your author didn’t really care for them either. I think they were just added in to pump this novel up to 50k.
Heads up — many books work just fine as novellas. They suffer when needless, boring subplots are added. Go all the way or don’t bother at all because, blue balls really suck. What did the sub-plots add? Why were the relevant to the main plot? With a book like this, that relies on two main characters trying to figure out their feelings for one another, you focus on those two as much as you can without ever having them cross the line until the climax.
They are, in essence, Geisha. They will tempt you, tease you, serve you, but won’t actually do anything until the end of the night, when everyone else is gone. This is my problem with John Green books post Looking for Alaska.
I don’t give a flying fuck about any of the characters outside of the MC and the love interest. And that’s fine, when you devote as little time as necessary to them. But you, Kissing Kate, decided to bring your boring side characters out at every turn, flaunting them in my face, having them strip for god knows whose enjoyment, all the while, leaving the truly interesting story as a side-show when it was the main attraction. She was the friend for Lisa to vent to.
Her weirdness didn’t matter in terms of advancing the plot. What did Beth contribute? Besides being the little sister, nothing. In fact, the only side characters who contributed to the plot were Jerry and Finn. Jerry, for making Lisa awkward around all that is feminine and Finn, for being the male that makes Lisa realize she’s completely in love with Kate.
Despite that bullshit you pulled, I still like you. But I’ve got more complaining to do. You have no resolution. You give a climax and drop it. You don’t wrap up your romantic arc. Obviously, Kate’s in love with Lisa, too.
richiespicks / KISSING KATE
Look, I don’t like happily ever afters lie but I do like conflict resolution. While I understand Lisa is hurt that Kate cares about how she appears to other people, she should see that Kate really likes her. I mean, good fucking god, that girl dumped her beard well What do you call a guy a girl is dating so people won’t think she’s gay? He’s clueless, like a katee. She used to be way too touchy feely with you, and after you make out, she’s dying to spend time with you, but doesn’t want to get too close.
She gets jealous when you date guys and is ecstatic when you don’t enjoy the date. I can see how she’d be kiwsing that Kate isn’t willing to out herself, but is it worth throwing away four years of friendship just because you’re hurt that she won’t admit she’s gay? You know you’re in love with each other. Just ride it out. I mean, god, she’s supposed to be super-hot. Obviously, she’s not completely adverse to myraclw idea.
Even after you kissed a second time, and kiswing rejected you out of fear, she still wants to hang out with you. You just ditch her, ignoring the fact that it might be hard for her to come to terms with what she is.
You know, you were the one ignoring her. What do you gain by ditching her? I understand that you hate hanging out with her and being unable to laurenn about what you really feel, but what do you gain by ignoring her? Going back over the parts that I skimmed, I’m even more pissed with Lissa and you, book.
She was, like, luring me farther into the parking lot. Give me a break. Blood rushed to my face. I thought about it for a second.
That kind of freaks me out. By the end of the book, Lissa is back to square one, only she’s friends with kissinv two-dimensional Ariel, who just happens to poof a happy lesbian couple from out of her ass. Instead of confronting your problems or, I don’t know, trying to help your friend with hers, I guess it’s just better to ditch her and run off layren someone else because your friend won’t make out with you.
That’s what good friends do. And, seriously, all we get is kissing. I mean, I have no problem with a book that’s just kissing, but come on. If we cut out all those horrible, horrible subplots or just made them better and added more scenes between Kate and Lisa, and gave this book a proper resolution, I can see a sex scene fitting in.
I was expecting one. Or least something kiissing than a short kiss in the final confrontation between the main couple. Anyway, yeah, I have a lot to complain about, book.
