WoW #15: Dash and Lily's Book of Dares, by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn

“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.

[Summary from Goodreads

I haven't read anything from David Levithan, and I want to so bad! His books aren't published in Argentina, and I don't have the money to have them shipped to me. I basically read ebooks, people. It's hurting my eyes.
But enough of my whining, this sounds really sweet and exciting! And it's set in New York, that's awesome! I'd love to read this!
Tell me, what are you waiting for? I love adding new titles to my never ending To Read List :)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

So.. I just recently read another collaboration between Rachel Cohn and David Levithan (Nick & Norah's Playlist) and I absolutely loved it. I've read some of Levithan's solo work, and he's one of my more favored authors. :)

I actually haven't heard of this book, actually, so you caught me by surprise with this WoW! I can't wait to read it! :) Great pick, and I'm a new follower <3

You should pick up David Levithan's books right away they are soooo good. If you haven't read any Rachel Cohn yet, I recommend Gingerbread, Shrimp and Cupcake.

You have a fun site. I'm a new follower.
