Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares is about Dash and Lily (shockingly), who meet through a book that Lily leaves in a bookstore. They each must complete a series of dares for the other and eventually meet in person (I haven’t read this book in a while so sorry for the short description, here’s the Goodread’s one).
This is honestly one of the sweetest books I’ve ever read. That’s really the only word for it, because honestly Lily is a perfect cinnamon bun and Dash is the cutest thing ever. Their relationship is really cute and they complement each other really well. This book is also pretty funny, in classic Levithan style. The characters are also great. Dash meets a bunch of Lily’s eccentric relatives before meeting her, but they are all fascinating and make the story. Lily loves dogs and reading and baking cookies, so I feel like we’d get along really well.
This book also takes place during Christmas, so it’s a good one to read around the holidays. But, I still read it when it’s not Christmas and the point of it isn’t really Christmas. I would recommend this book to anyone really. The language is simple enough that I think younger readers would still enjoy it, but the story is still interesting enough that I think older readers would also enjoy it. It’s a pretty easy read, so I would also suggest it to people who want something easy to read over the holidays.
Let me know if you’ve read it and what you think!
