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

A Collection of Failures Through February...

I don't really know if what a clumsy and awkward person I am has been documented enough. Through inference, I feel like it's been made evident. I've mentioned a few of the embarrassing little moments that I've had throughout my monthly's but you are wrong if you think that's it. My life is not just a collection of one off encounters with shame: it's basically a book. A solid 75% of February had been comprised of making a fool of myself, overall. So, here I am, admitting to that fact, and hoping that these stories will make you feel a little bit better about yourself...

The Onion Incident- Okay, I feel like this dramatic title has really pulled you in! Our story begins on a Thursday morning, during half term. I was going to go out to print some photos for my scrap book but my mum asked if I'd go and get her two carrots, an onion and a bag of potatoes. A strangely specific list- I know- but I just accepted it and went off on my journey. I printed my photos…

Why I Hate Rom Coms...

Contrary to what the title would have you believe, romance is my favourite genre of film. I'd say that the first real rom com I watched was 'Pretty Woman' and my obsession had grown since then. However, no matter have much I adore them, I have some issues with the category. Pretty much everyone romance film includes one of these tropes; they wouldn't be a trope if they didn't!

First of all is rain. I have no problem with the weather: light drizzle is actually my favourite weather (I find it really therapeutic to see it bouncing off of an umbrella, okay?!?) but the rain you get in rom coms is next level. It's thunderstorm level of soak, yet nobody seems to have seen the forecast! Surely if that much rain was predicted, one of these people would be wearing a raincoat? It actually doesn't seem to have any kind of effect on the characters, so their lack of preparation isn't an issue. If I'm getting rained on I'm shivery, have stringy curls all over m…
