Genre: Contemporary, Humor, Romance, Young Adult

"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 love this book! Lily, the heroine of the story has left a red moleskin notebook on a bookstore shelf with dares, waiting for the right guy to pick it up until Dash showed up to accept her dares. Now, how many of us dreamed of pulling something like this during our teenage years? I know I did. 

The story is told from Lily and Dash’s POV, alternating with each chapter. I love both Lily and Dash. But I like Lily’s character more. She was very likeable and I guess I can relate to her character a bit more.  

I enjoyed the dares between Lily and Dash. They are very enjoyable, exciting and captivating. There were lots of times when I can’t restrain myself from laughing out loud. Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares is the kind of book I would label as cute. Very cute book with a perfect ending! It is definitely one of my favorite books!
