   Goodreads Summary: "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 once put this book away for a little while, and now that I've come back to it, I feel that I did at the perfect time, Christmastime. What's better than reading a romance book that takes place during time when in reality it actually is Christmastime? 

    Asdfghikl. I enjoyed this one so much, all I needed was a cup of hot chocolate right next to me, and I would be in heaven. Oh, and look at the gorgeous cover, you just want to eat it up.

    I love the way that David Levithan and Rachel Cohn set up the story, in different dialogues that were all written in a red notebook, passing along to each other. Both Dash and Lily still had a life, and it's not what normal teenagers would do these days, teenagers today would text or call other than writing in a notebook, how adorable and unique is that?

     I really liked Dash. You could tell that he loved this girl, even though he never met her earlier. The way their relationship formed was gorgeous, right until the moment they met in person. Lily was fun and intelligent. 

     I loved this book. It was fun, hilarious and adorable x100. I can't get enough.
