Waiting On Wednesday (1).

Since I'm busy with school and reviews are taking longer than usual to write, I decided to busy you all (and myself) with the Waiting On Wednesday meme from Jill, at Breaking the Spine.

So what am I waiting on?

Dash and Lily's Book of Dares
by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
Release: 10/26/2010.

From Amazon:
“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?

I've never read Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, or Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List, but Dash and Lily's Book of Dares sounds more appealing to me; seems more adventurous and - possibly - more realistic? I have high hopes for it.


  1. I have zero interest in the author's other books, but this one sounds really good!

  2. Interesting idea for a novel. Hope it lives up to your expectations. Love the cover!

    My WoW pick:

  3. This one sounds like a lot of fun - love the idea of exchanging dares in a notebook!

  4. This is different. I like the premise. Thanks for alerting me to this one. Haven't heard of it before.

  5. This looks great. I read Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist and LOVED it so I have no doubt I'll like this one too. Thanks for showcasing it. I hadn't heard of it before. I'm adding it to my wishlist!

    My WoW Pick

  6. How cool! I didn't know that they were writing another book today.
