The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily- Rachel Cohn & David Levithan: Book Review!

Hi Guys,

Welcome to the longest titled post ever! That took me longer to type than this review! If you didn't manage to get to the end (I don't blame you!) this post is a review of 'The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily'. It's part of the Zoella Book Club and I have been doing a review series for a while. If you would like to look at any of my other book posts, they're all in the - newly updated- bar at the top! But for now, let's get on with the post!


As always, I will try to keep spoilers to a minimum!


Dash and Lily have been together for almost a year and Dash has loved every minute. But, when Lily's grandfather falls ill, the repercussions affect everyone. The magic soon falls out of Lily's life and Dash can only sit and watch... or can he? Join the two on a Christmas adventure, as Dash battles to get his and Lily's spark back in time for the 25th!

As always, I'm starting with the characters! Dash was everything. He, without a doubt, is one of my favourite ZBC love interests. Cohn and Levithan wrote him perfectly and you could tell just how much he cared for Lily. On top of this, the amount of empathy I felt for Lily was unreal: I am quite an emotional person but this book took it to the next level! Just as a side note, Langston was amazing! All of the side characters had such big personalities and I felt like I knew all of them by the end!

This, of course, is a credit to the amazing writing! The plot was also superb. I always seem to love books that are from two different view points and this one did not disappoint. There were so many twists and turns but they all felt appropriate. I feel like some books like this can feel strained but this was just perfect. I'd really love to read the first Dash and Lily book because I think this is a sequel. If the first is as good as this, tell me in the comments!

Also, tell me what you thought of this book! Feel free to share this post and please add me to your circles on Google +. I hope you're having the best day!

Thank you for Reading

My Christmas Gift Guide!!

Hi Guys,

Welcome to the first of my Christmas posts! I'm already ridiculously excited and there is still 29 days to go! Today I'm going to be giving my gift suggestions for anyone who needs help with their gift giving. Obviously, Christmas isn't all about the presents but it's always nice to give someone a gift that you know they will love! That was a super long intro so lets get into the actual post!

£5 or less...

1) Sleek Mini Matte Me 4 set: I have this on my list because this set looks amazing! For anyone who doesn't know, liquid lipsticks are meant to be the next 'thing' (Thanks to Kylie Jenner) so these are perfect for the makeup lover in your life! The only thing I will say is that they have been sold out online and are impossible to find in store. Let's just hope that they get restocked soon!

2)Impulse Body Spray Mini Cracker Gift Set- Rock and Love, Why Not and Very Pink are all included in this adorable set. The best part about it is that it is cu…

What you Need For Back to School...

It's already this time of year again; obviously I'm thrilled. Of course this is the best part of summer with the perpetual worrying about getting the 'wrong' thing and all of the consideration you have to put into making sure your bag won't clash with your face. I mean, maybe that's not what you're thinking, but now you are, right? Is your backpack the wrong colour for you? I can't confirm it isn't, but I can guarantee that these items are all cute as hell.

Bags:
VANS Snoopy Backpack- Currently, this back pack is sat in my wardrobe, waiting for the sixth of September. I saw it when I was in Cornwall and fell in love with it so ordered it as soon as I got home. My bag was VANS last year and was so well made (there's even a secret pocket)! This one is a dark navy with little drawings of skateboarding Snoopy all around. I've loved Snoopy since I was little and this is just a nice homage to him!
Michael Kors Over the Shoulder- I have never been mor…
