The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily
The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily | David Levithan, Rachel Cohn
'After reading this I wanted to read it all over again' - Zoe Sugg aka Zoella. This glorious new collaboration from the New York Times bestselling authors of Nick & Norahs Infinite Playlist was personally selected by Zoella for the Zoella Book Club. A teen romance set against the magical backdrop of New York City in December. It is the ultimate Christmas book. Dash and Lily have been dating for nearly a year, but when Lilys beloved grandfather falls ill, the repercussions take their toll on everyone. Even though they are still together, somehow the magic has gone out of their relationship and its clear that Lily has fallen out of love with life. Action must be taken! Dash teams up with Lilys brother and a host of their friends, who have just twelve days to get Lilys groove back in time for Christmas. A warm, wintry read that is guaranteed to be a favourite Christmas book for many years to come. Look out for David and Rachels other young adult novels: Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List. Also by David Levithan, Every Day, Another Day, Marly's Ghost, Two Boys Kissing, How They Met and Other Stories. David is the New York Times best-selling author of Boy Meets Boy and Marlys Ghost. While among his many collaborations are Will Grayson, Will Grayson with Fault in Our Stars author John Green, and Nick and Norahs Infinite Playlist with Rachel Cohn, which became a major film. Tiny Cooper from Will Grayson, Will Grayson, now has his own novel: Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story. David is also a highly respected childrens book editor, whose list includes many luminaries of childrens literature, including Garth Nix, Libba Bray and Suzanne Collins. He lives and works in New York. Rachel Cohn was born in Maryland, but later moved to New York. Her first novel, Gingerbread, was published in 2002. Since then she has gone on to write many other successful young adult and children's books, several in collaboration with David Levithan. She now lives and writes in Los Angeles, assisted by two very cool cats.

I really liked the first in this series, but I found this one frustrating. Lily in particular was hard to listen to, especially for the first 2/3rds of the book. There is nothing that annoys me more than someone who expects the people who love her to read her mind, rather than just speaking up and saying what she needs. The last 1/3rd is better, but this is still just barely a three star read for me.

The first half of the book was a no for me. The second half picked up and was frothier and funnier. But for me, Dash and Lily's Book of Dares was a much cuter and more enjoyable read.

I bring you #12daysofbookmas because:
1. Holiday stories are how I deal. #joinin
2. Never enough reading time before Holidays.
3. I'm on Winterbreak until Jan 7 & have lots of time for reading.
4. LOVE idea of celebrating for 12 days.
Lily and Dash. I love Lily's spirit & joy in the season even while freely admitting to not being religious. Love Dash for his snarky humor/bamhumbugery while underneath he's a marshmallow. #day1 🎁

This book left me feeling meh. I loved the first book and was so excited to find out there was a sequel... Plus I wanted a great, cheesy, Christmas read. This book fell short for me. Definitely pick up the first one, Dash and Lily‘s Book of Dares, and skip this one. #Book31of2018

I enjoyed 1st book more.Lily continue with her childish behavior and faced some unrealistic risky experiences finding her independent side.Some scenes seemed were extended just to justify the length of the novel hurting the plot.I found interesting the families dynamics & values.There were some dialogues about beliefs, about love of books and hope to the future that I really liked.A simple funny YA novel (more for young) that I enjoyed 🤷🏻‍♀️3⭐️

Lmstraubie I really enjoyed the 1st one. I need to check this out! 2y
Gissy @Lmstraubie I read it like a Christmas story but it is not so good as the first one. However, there were parts That Dash and Lily's aunt expressed that touched me. They are in almost at the end of the book 😳☺️ 2y

So, I‘m really disappointed in this read. I thought I would love it, but one of the main characters is so whiny and immature. This is a #dnf for me.

peaknit I couldn‘t get into it either for the same reason. (edited) 2y
mrp27 I really wanted to love the first Dash and Lily, cute idea but the teens were too pretentious and quirky for quirkys sake for me to want to read this one. 2y

I haven't had time to read in ages. It makes me sad buuut I have most of my Xmas gifts wrapped and I dyed my hair a few days ago .... no time to wash it hence the crazy hairdo (that I actually kind of like tbh). I am hoping to have reading time while I'm out of town for Christmas. We shall see. #notime

I'm going to get Twelve Days of Dash and Lily and probably a cozy mystery of some sort but I need other holiday/Christmas themed books to read this month. Anybody got suggestions? #christmasrecs #booksrecommendations

This sequel failed to replicate the magic of the first book. Dash and Lily's Book of Dares was whimsical, magical, full of the holiday spirit. In contrast, Twelve Days of Dash & Lily had a sad and gloomy tone. Dash was awesome! He had somehow transformed into the perfect boyfriend. But Lily. Lily was such a downer in this book. Another thing is that the plot felt so random! This wasn't terrible but it's not as good as the first book.

MrBook Great review! 2y

This book was really good and jolly! I loved the plot and switching between who's talking! I love the characters Dash and Boomer they were hilarious! I didn't really like Lily until the end, she got really annoying half way through. Gets you in the Xmas spirit!

Started this yesterday night and I'm already half way through. It's really good so far and I'm getting quite into the characters apart from Lily, she is quite confusing. I like the plot of the story, very Christmasy book even though it is nowhere near Christmas XD

Both are perfect holiday reads. One is about the magic of Christmas time. The other is about finding the magic of Christmas when you are in a dark place. Add both to your December TBR pile for next year!

I liked this book almost as much as the first one. It was what I needed to read right now - funny how that happens.

It seems like everyone's stressed out this year and not in the Christmas spirit because it's too much work...

The beautiful thing about Christmas is it comes even if you're not ready for it. I'm thinking of the ending of Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch stole Christmas. It came! It came just the same...

Notafraidofwords Neeeeded to hear this. Christmas is stressful. 3y

At first, I wasn't sure whether I liked this book as much as the first one. It's missing the same sense of spontaneity, but what it lacks in whimsy it gains in depth. If the first book was the honeymoon phase of a relationship, this book is the part where you realize a relationship takes work and upkeep. Things happen not just because, but because both people work to make them happen. Dash & Lily have grown, and so has this sequel along with them.

Megabooks @BookishBron I like how Cohn and Levithan tried to trap each other. She writes the Lily chapters and he the Dash. They don't talk while they're doing it. That's one of the coolest parts to me. 3y

Adorable. It wasn't quite up to the first, but almost. I love how Lily is so exuberant (a little less so in this book, but it gets better) and how Dash is this moody bookish philosophical hipster hater (my teenage dream). And David Levithan is so incisive about love. I love his writing. Merry Christmas to me!

Meh! Definitely not for me. I was getting so tired of all the (honestly very unnecessary) teenage whining that I had to bail. Maybe I'm too old for this... nah, I loved Eleanor&Park so that can't be it. I was just constantly thinking 'why don't you tell him you would like him to stay?', 'why don't you ask her how she feels?' etc. 😉 I really wanted to like this and it looked like a good Xmas read but it simply didn't work for me. Sorry.

Vexingcircumstance I think that kind of stuff during most yA romance stories. I think I'm just way more direct than most people, especially teenagers. 3y
Zelma I adore David Levithan and loved their collaboration for Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, but I felt the same way about the first Dash and Lily book. I couldn't deal with the characters at all. 3y

4🌟 #inthemoodforlove? Check out this sweet NYC-based, Christmas, YA romance. I love the way Cohn and Levithan write: They pass chapters back and forth without talking. In this book, it's especially cute how they try to trip each other up with misdirection. It's just too much silly fun! Perfect for a light read.

Don't forget to check out the first book (link 👇🏻) #seasonsreadings2016
