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

November's Essay...

I haven't been feeling very well this month. I took my first day of school- in a few years- on Monday because of how bad it was. Physically, I had a cold. No, I'm not one of those people! (Side note...) It always irritates me when people have a bit of a sniffly nose and then take two weeks off from school. There's just no need! My moto is: have a bit of lemsip and get over it. I'll drag myself into school practically unconscious with a bus stuck in my side and still plaster a smile onto my face. This month, however, I finally admitted there was something wrong.

A day was spent under a blanket with Gossip Girl on. In the end I put 'After Laughter' on and woke up two hours later, confused, wondering why the music had stopped. Even though I felt awful the next day (I always get massive colds!), I went back into school. That day at home did me good though because it was nice to spend some time resting and not being stressed. That's something that I don't do …

A Zillenial on the Eighties...

Now, let's throw it back to the glorious year of 2004. Shrek 2 was hitting our screens, Jeremy Clarckson was hitting Piers Morgan in the face and Maria Julia Mantilla was being crowned 'Miss World' over in China. I, a bit closer to home, was enjoying the early years of life. However, across the sea 'Bowling for Soup' were releasing '1985': a bop that I would only come to appreciate about twelve years later. The song contains references to many pop-culture focal points that I have never understood... until now! It's time for me to explore the eighties! 

First off is 'Whitesnake'. For the past few years, I've thought that 'Whitesnake' was one person (a rapper or something? I don't know!) but it turns out that they're a band! The were a British hard rock band who rose to fame in the 80s, originally formed in 1977. Another band that I believed to be a single person was 'Blondie'. My friend recently went to see them, althou…
