REVIEW : Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan


“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 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?


Well. I seriously don't know what to think about this book. It was okay; appropriate as my english teacher would say; but definitely not one of the best books I ever read.
It has an interesting plot: two teenagers getting to know each other through a journal? Sounds good. Plus it is a christmasy - new yearly setting. 
And well, as I said it is good but as always there are things I didn't really enjoy..
One of those would be that I have a hate-love relationship with Lily. In one moment she is like the most likable person but in the next she is a dick. And that annoied me.
Another problem I had was I couldn't get into the book so I would absorb it like I did for example with Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas. Maybe  it could be because if the length; 250 pages isn't that much...
And then the romance. I don't think it was horrible but it was not the best. At some points it was cute, maybe, but in most parts of the book it was getting on my nerves. Don't know why but that's it. 

Of course there were things I really enjoyed.
One is Dash. I like this guy. He is kind of nerdy, loves to read and has a really big vocabulary. 
And then I liked two scenes nearly at the end where Lily and Dash are together.
Oh! And I loved Lily's aunt :D

To sum up, I would say it is a great quick-read around christmas time and new year.

★★★ 1/2
