Yes, the time had finally come for me to re-read Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares. I read it last year at Christmas-time and absolutely loved it. I’ve been waiting for some snow to fall to read it this year, but according to the weatherman on the news yesterday, we won’t be getting wintery weather until mid-January (holy crap!). So, I finally caved and started reading it just in time for Christmas.
Unfortunately, looking back at my review from last year, I don’t know how much more I have to add. It’s a great book with wonderful characters and an interesting plot. All the Christmas talk – Christmas shoppers in Manhattan, baking cookies, opening presents, Christmas memories, etc – puts me in a happy mood. I literally have a smile on my face as I read this book.
It’s one of those books that makes me want to be a nicer person and all that stuff. Of course that warm and fuzzy feeling only lasts for about a day and then I go back to my semi-crabby self, but I like the themes of hope, belief, risk, friendship, etc that this book literally just bleeds. I wish I could be a little more like Lily.
Anyways, if you want an actual review, look at the one from last year. It’ll make more sense. I’m off to try to squeeze reading one more book in before Christmas…
Sarah Says: 5 stars… I think I like it even better this time around.
