Dash and Lily's Book Of Dares


By: David Levithan and Rachel Cohn

Summary: “I’ve left some clues for you.
If you want them, turn the page.
If you don’t, put the book back on the shelf, please.”

So begins the latest whirlwind romance from the New York Times bestselling authors of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist. Lily has left a red notebook full of challenges on a favorite bookstore shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept its dares. But is Dash that right guy? Or are Dash and Lily only destined to trade dares, dreams, and desires in the notebook they pass back and forth at locations across New York? Could their in-person selves possibly connect as well as their notebook versions? Or will they be a comic mismatch of disastrous proportions?

 
My Thoughts: I was so excited to get this book in the mail! I had seen a few people raving about it on twitter so I knew I just had to read it! Plus it sounded like so much fun! And it was! I adored Dash and Lily's Book Of Dares. First, we are introduced to the main characters Dash and Lily. Both of them have their own family situations and are both staying home for Christmas so Lily decides to leave a red notebook for someone to find with a dare in it. First things first, the place she leaves it in is The Strand. Come on, most of you book lovers know of The Strand. In New York! I've never been there but I'd love to visit the bookstore! Well, that right there got me really excited. She than leaves it by an awesome book and Dash just happens to be browsing that day and finds it. That starts a whirlwind fun challenge game! The things they had to do were so fun and so hilarious! Rubbing Santa's belly, cough cough!

I really enjoyed both Dash and Lily's pages. I loved both of their personalities and just the way both of them thought and felt. I loved how each of them wanted to meet one another face to face but were both hesitate because they were scared they would ruin the fun they were having by not really knowing each other. I haven't read Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist but I did watch the movie. I still think I would have enjoyed Dash and Lily much more. Their friends and relatives were also really funny.

I can't say much more without giving away too many spoilers. This is just one of those books that most people will love and have so much fun and be excited while reading it.

Overall: Loved It! This book was so awesome! I loved the alternating chapters, I loved the characters, I loved their personalities, I loved how they just belonged together. I knew it all along!

Cover: Love It! I think its one of the most colorful beautiful covers I've seen in a while!
What I'd Give It:

The Strand!
David Levithan certainly knows how to co-write book as evidenced by Will Grayson Will Grayson and Nick & Norah... I'll keep my eye out for his one.
