A thousand volt charge of tension and pleasure. It is also addictive. Who has not wanted to kiss on? Who has not kissed some part of a lover that shrugs off convention in the taming of desire? Who has not kissed, or been kissed by surprise, in wonderment or even on a street corner in the squalling rain. The kiss takes us where our dreams want to go.

The Poetry of Kissing
This collection of poems is read for you from the lips of Ghizela Rowe and Tim Graham. Not to mention the fact that I could never stay focused on what was going on. Character-wise, I did not favor anyone more than another.

If someone's personality stood out, it was barely. It bothers me that Miranda just goes along with whatever Stephen wants her to do. Her motivation to get back home, her anger towards her mother, and her "affections" were flimsy and barely there. Mingle tried to make her a stubborn person, but the portrayal was poor. Stephen got on my nerves a lot, though. Not to mention that he bossed her around like he owned her, or that she owed him something for putting her in unnecessary trouble. The other supporting characters, including Shakespeare, are not really worth mentioning.
There are a couple of parts that I liked about the book. One includes the glimpses about the conflict of religions Catholic, Puritan, Protestant that were part of every day life in William Shakespeare's time. The other thing is how that somehow twisted itself into the story.
Overall, Kissing Shakespeare lacked the amount of details I look forward to in books. With the lack of details came the feeling that the story was hurried.

It could have had more emotion to it, both with the characters and the writing in general. I tried really hard to get through this book, made an effort to like it, but it just wasn't my cup of tea.

First I want to start off by saying this book isn't what I would normally read. I have to be honest and admit, the only reason I read this was because of the title And I'm so glad I did. Shakespeare has been a part of Miranda's life as long as she can remember. She is the daughter of two extremely talented, world known actors and hopes to one day become one as well. Then one day after performing in the play "The Taming of the Shrew," she feels that she didn't do a good enough job so she hides from the cast. But one of the members finds her, and changes her world upside down.
He tells her she is the one who must save the world's greatest play wright, by seducing him. For the story to have such an exciting plot though, it moved slowly to me. Granted I was moved right to 16th century England from Mingle's words, but it seemed a little boring.
I felt like a real girl during that time, doing nothing. I understand it was a romance novel, but a little plot twists or something would have made it a little more interesting. I was awed by the way Mingle was able to pull me into Miranda and Stephen's world.
By the way they characters talk and act shows that she definitely did her research for her story. I like when it is evident in the story that the author did their homework. It shows that they wanted every detail covered and really wanted to transport the reader to the time their story is set. Overall, it turned out to be less than what I thought it was about, which kind of disappointed me.

Time Travel. A romantic time travel story that's ideal for fans of novels by Meg Cabot and Donna Jo Napoli--and, of course, Shakespeare. Miranda has Shakespeare in her blood: she hopes one day to become a Shakespearean actor like her famous parents. At least, she does until her disastrous performance in her school's staging of The Taming of the Shrew.
See a Problem?
Humiliated, Miranda skips the opening-night party. All she wants to do is hide.
Fellow cast member, Stephen Langford, has other plans for Miranda. When he steps out of the backstage shadows and asks if she'd like to meet Shakespeare, Miranda thinks he's a total nutcase. But before she can object, Stephen whisks her back to 16th century England—the world Stephen's really from. He wants Miranda to use her acting talents and modern-day charms on the young Will Shakespeare. Without her help, Stephen claims, the world will lost its greatest playwright. Miranda isn't convinced she's the girl for the job. Why would Shakespeare care about her?
And just who is this infuriating time traveler, Stephen Langford? Reluctantly, she agrees to help, knowing that it's her only chance of getting back to the present and her "real" life. What Miranda doesn't bargain for is finding true love. User reviews 2 reviews Overall rating.
