Waiting on Wednesday (1)

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It features upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.

This is my first week participating, and I'm super excited to be talking about...

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares
Coming October 26, 2010 - Preorder it below

From Goodreads:
“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 New York Times 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 comic mismatch of disastrous proportions?

Rachel Cohn and David Levithan have written a love story that will have readers perusing bookstore shelves, looking and longing for a love (and a red notebook) of their own.

My thoughts:

I cannot freaking wait for this book. For me, Cohn and Levithan are my favorite writing duo. They are amazing enough on their own, but when they get together it's magic. I just loved their previous collaborations Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist and Naomi & Ely's No Kiss List. (In fact, you should totally keep an eye out during this year's BlogFest because I have it on good authority that someone will be giving away paperback copies of both.) Dash & Lily sounds like another great adventure brought to us by the brillantly sharp and funny Rachel and David. Theirs are two of my favorite voices in YA, and I'm so glad they have another story to tell.


  1. Of course I've heard of this duo, though I sadly haven't actually read any of their work yet. This sounds like such a fun read and I just love the cover. Great pick.

  2. I hope that you get your book soon and that it is everything you hope it to be. Here is what I am Waiting on Wednesday for.

  3. I read and enjoyed Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List. I'll be on the lookout for this one. The cover art is clever.
