“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? 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.

So I was in the mood for a fuffily romance, this was on my to read and I'm glad I picked this one to read! It was so cute!

I loved the characters, both characters wanted to be with someone during Christmas and they found each other through a red notebook in Strand (a bookstore I've always wanted to go to!) I loved how real they both were, Lily was sensitive and sweet, Dash was outgoing and funny. Shoutout to the supporting characters too because they were also awesome :)

I loved the plot, and how Dash and Lily got to know each other through these dares (My favourite was the Santa one hahahha) and the writing was great, I love when books switch POV between the main characters, and I especially love when the characters have such different voices. It makes them so much more believable.

Overall if you are looking for a cutesy fun read, I highly recommend Dash and Lily's Book of Dares!
