““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?

Rachel Cohn and David Levithan have written a love story that will have readers perusing bookstore shelves, looking and longing for a love (and a red notebook) of their own.”

    The title of this book is what caught my eye. It sounded intriguing so of course, I ended up adding this book to my list and read it.  

    The book switches between Lily and Dash’s point of view and I really liked reading that because I got to see both perspectives when they did the dares.

    Lily is the literal definition of sweet. She was childish, kind and had an obvious love for Christmas. As the book goes on, Lily decides that she wants to act a little more rebellious than her normal self but that doesn’t last long and I thought it was funny to see sweet Lily try to act rebellious. Dash is the complete opposite of Lily. He’s snarky and sarcastic and at times he was a little intense but overall, he was a nice character. 

   The relationship between Dash and Lily was cute and funny. They started at a nice steady pace and it was just really sweet to read about.

   The plot was ok but the whole reason I thought this book would be really interesting is that Lily and Dash would be swapping a book, challenging each other to different dares but they only really did a few dares. The rest of the time they spent just talking to each other through a notebook.

Final Thoughts

   Overall, I rate this book a 4 out of 5. It was a sweet book, that made me laugh from time to time. While reading it did feel like I was watching a Hallmark movie. I did not expect to like this book as much as I did but sadly this book is next book to be kicked off. I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, you’ve just been reviewed.
