"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 cosmic mismatch of disastrous proportions?
I read this book over Christmas because it was quite short that I could fit around all my Christmas shopping. Dash and Lilly’s Book of Dares was so easy to read and get lost in, I was pulled in from the first paragraph and it even put me in the mood for Christmas.

I loved the idea of the book of dares that Lily had created within the book and I for one know that even though I have a love for books and puzzles I would not be able to solve what was in that notebook. And I think that because I couldn’t figure out that part of the book it kept me guessing on what was going to happen next. Plus this book was just so cute! And like I said put me in the perfect Christmas mood which made it even cuter! And all the cute characters! And if you haven’t guessed I thought everything about this book was cute.
I loved how this book was told by both Dash and Lily’s point of view for two reasons, for one (and yes I know this isn’t the best reason but…) I found that if I was reading too much of one characters point of view I found myself slightly skimming over some paragraphs, and then the second reason was because (and this one is better) Dash and Lily were such different characters and it was just so much fun reading their different views on the same events.
I really enjoyed this book overall even though I may have skim read over a paragraph or two but this book was perfect to get me into the reading and Christmas mood plus (and yes I am going to say it again) this book was just so cute. There were good characters and a fun romance so pick this book up if you are looking for a light enjoyable read.
