My Rating

Synopsis (goodreads):

“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 Timesbestselling 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.

My Review:

I couldn’t stop reading this book, literally. Finished in a day!

Excuse me while i take it all in. Okay. Let’s begin.
This book has been on my wish-list since the day i heard about it and when i was scouring the book store yesterday, without it even being in my head i saw it. Grabbed it. Didn’t let go. It was mine and mine alone.

While some might not like this book because it screams love story, my only advice to them: don’t bother turning the pages if you’re only going to criticise it. It’s stories like these that make me feel all tingly inside. This collaboration is a work of art. Of genius!

This book is simply for those who admire the cute and nerdy within us. Lily was cute and fluffy, while Dash was always in sarcastic mode. And reading the story from both their point of views made it an interesting and entertaining read.
The concept of finding that one perfect person (perfect for you) through an act of chance makes this story the best thing i’ve read in a while. This is the story that i was waiting to read and when i finally got my hands on the copy (not fairing so well in The Hunger Games department) i was more that happy. I knew it was going to be a surefire fantastic read!

Read it! You don’t want to miss it, you hopeless romantics, you!
