Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
“We believe in the wrong things, that’s what frustrates me the most. Not the lack of belief, but the belief in the wrong things. You want meaning? Well, the meanings are out there. We’re just so damn good at reading them wrong.”
This book was set during Christmas and ended during New Year’s. I wasn’t really sure I would find a book to fit this category without it being some really Christmassy (is this even a word? lol) type story. I do LOVE Christmas, but too Christmassy can be a little much. This had the perfect amount of Christmas and cookies. I wasn’t actually looking for a book set during Christmas for this particular challenge yet, but hey, it fell into my lap…well my headphones. This book sounded like it was going to be a really fun read and it totally was!
I listened to the entire audiobook today at work and it was great. It was hilarious, fun, and cute! I loved the whole concept of the story with leaving the notebook in a bookstore for someone to find. If I didn’t already have a boyfriend, I might have given this idea a try. 😉 It would totally be fun running around New York passing a notebook around and looking for clues and doing silly things! I loved Lily so much and she was so hilarious. Dash was so great and his best friend Boomer was the best, he was always so happy about life. So many great characters in this book. I really loved this book and I am glad I found it!
Goodreads Description:“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?
“There are just lots of possibilities in the world…I need to keep my mind open for what could happen and not decide that the world is hopeless if what I want to happen doesn’t happen. Because something else great might happen in between.”
What are some books that you read set during Christmas? I don’t think I’ve read too many of them. Leave a comment below!
