Lily puts a red notebook on a bookshelf in The Strand, with a cryptic message that will lead the finder of the notebook to clues that spell out a dare. Dash finds the notebook, follows the directions to the message, and then adds a dare of his own for Lily. They continue to pass the notebook back and forth, wondering if they will, or even should, ever meet.

Another quirky teenage romance from Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, and the perfect pick to start my holiday reading list! I love the Nick & Norah vibes. If you want to skip the book, the Netflix series is seriously cute and worth the watch! I watched it today while putting up my tree and decorations. 🥰❤️🎄🎁 3.5/5

LibrarianRyan I agree with sochrane. I haven't read the book, but the series was cute. I have not read a Levithan book since a bad run in with the author years ago. Him and John Green were presenting together and talk about being a$$H*!3$. 12mo

Don't you hate when they use the show/movie cover for the book cover? Especially when the characters look nothing like their descriptions in the book. Oh well....the story was still really cute.

I spent some time getting to know my local little free libraries dropping off some festive reads I enjoyed this month, but probably will not revisit. I want to put one in my yard so badly!

My oldest really wanted to build a snowman, but the snow was too soft. Luckily, he accepted my mini snowman and festooned him with wet leaves and sticks.

A boy finds a red moleskin notebook in his favourite bookshop in New York, curious he opens it to find a message encouraging him to fill in the blanks by following a set of clues. What follows is a delightful read about 2 people who connect through the words they share in the little red notebook. Set to the backdrop of New York at Christmas the book creates an atmosphere of hope and possibility and you can‘t help but route for them to find love.

This was cute and I liked it, particularly the relatable teen pretentiousness that was EXACTLY what I was like and the waxing lyrical about the strand bookstore. I will say, though, that this is a clear example of the adaptation being better than the book - the show felt more focused as well as deeper and more magical, and I felt like the ‘dares‘ built more to a more meaningful conclusion with better atmosphere in the show.

Cute YA rom-com set in NYC over Christmas and New Years. I watched the Netflix adaptation last year, and it is a faithful adaptation, though I think the show did improve upon the book. The main characters and side characters all felt a bit more real and charming in the show (may need to rewatch this year!). Love the role that The Strand bookstore plays in both. 7 hours for #WinterGames #TeamGameSleigher and #LittenListen

BookBabe @CafeBookstelo What do you think? Read it and then watch together? 14mo

This is a rare occurrence where I liked the screen adaptation better. I thought book Lily was really immature and the ending was lackluster. Still a decent read though, I would have loved it when I was a teen. (I enjoyed all the subtle references to Nick and Norah sprinkled throughout)

Scavenger hunts, surprises, & Christmas spirit? All things I love & don't get enough of in my life, so I was probably engaged in the notebook's promise of adventure even faster than Dash was! I liked that both Dash & Lily were young & confused, the way I expect a couple of 16-year-olds to sound. And more than that, the notebook wasn't just a flirtation but a way for them to explore the questions & frustrations that were really tugging at them. ⬇

jmtrivera In the end, those questions or frustrations were not given enough depth or thought, and the story resolved itself pretty easily without them. But a little Christmas magic never hurt anyone, and this ended up being a cute, quick read. 2y

This book starts on Dec 17th and ends on Dec 27th. Dash is at the Strand in New York when he comes across Lily‘s book of dares that have clues. I liked it as it is a cute YA romance novel that also deals with issues of family, loneliness, and friendship. Both of them pass the notebook around and they do meet.

While I'm not that interested in watching a lot of holiday-themed movies/shows, I did really enjoy reading this book a few years ago, and thought it was the perfect time to tune in to the Netflix series. I'm really enjoying it (and love that they used The Waitresses' “Christmas Wrapping“ in an early episode!).

I watched the first few episodes of Dash & Lily on Netflix. I realized my college age daughter would like it too. I rewatched those first few with her and she ended up saying one more until we had binged the whole series before she did the schoolwork that needed to be done. I ordered the series of books and read the first one in two days, then immediately started the second.
