Top 5 Page-to-Screen Kisses
Hi everyone! Thank you so much to YABC for having me today!
My book, Kiss Me, Kill You, is about a girl who finds out the hard way that kisses can be deadly. Because there’s LOTS of kissing in my book, I thought it would be fun to pick my Top Five Page-to-Screen kisses. So here we go!
Number 5: Clueless—Cher and Josh
In case you didn’t know, Clueless is a retelling of Jane Austen’s Emma. Being a teen of the 90s, I LOVED this movie. And this moment is just perfect in it.
Number 4: Spiderman—Spidey and Mary Jane
Spiderman is a comic, but this is a pretty iconic and memorable kiss, so it has to be included, right? I mean, not just a rain kiss, but an UPSIDE-DOWN RAIN KISS?! *fans self*
Number 3: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows—Ron and Hermione
Now, if we were talking the books only, Harry and Ginny would have this one. But, I wasn’t convinced by movie Harry and Ginny’s chemistry (or lack thereof). But this kiss was hot—and convincing.
Number 2: The Vampire Diaries—Damon and Elena
This is probably the only case in which I prefer the screen to the book. But this scene, when Damon kisses Elena for the first time**, gave me ALLLLLLLL the feels. *swoon* **this may not actually be the first one, but you get what I mean.
Number 1: Pride and Prejudice—Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth
Okay, so they don’t actually kiss in the scene from this gif, but this scene is just so full of feels!
So there’s my Top 5! I actually had a really hard time narrowing this down. Did I miss one of your favorites? Tell me in the comments!

Meet Kiss Me, Kill You!
Emmy Duivel believes in true love: heart-stopping kisses, candlelight dinners, and a connection that lasts forever. But not the kind of kisses that land your date in the hospital. Emmy always knew she was different, but not in the supernatural sense. Not in the succubus sense.
Paul Andinn had only one job: watch over Emmy and make sure she doesn’t expose the supernatural world. It should have been easy, but the moment he looked away, she kissed that boy, and everything changed.
He should be more upset. But he can’t. Not when he’s falling hard for her.
