    1. Well poo! I didn't love this book as much as the first book. I think Dash & Lily's Book of Dares was so much better than this one. I still liked it, just didn't love it! And it was nice and Christmasy <-- I made up that word! Lily was having a hard time when her grandfather had a minor heart attack. There were also some other things going on in her life. It just didn't feel like the old Dash & Lily. Maybe because the book was so short, I don't know. I just love Dash & Lily either [...]

    2. 200 pages has never felt more like 400. (And this is a sequel, too.)For background on my history with the first book: I read it for a middle school summer reading list the year it came out. (Six years ago.) I think I liked it but I was 13 and can’t hold myself to that belief. The other thing about it being six years ago is it really seems like a sequel is unnecessary. Especially one that takes place a mere year after the first. But I was on a quest for Christmasy books and I saw this. So I pic [...]

    4. Had some cute moments but it was too twee for me. I didn't get along with the writing style (shallow, tongue in cheek, both characters had too similar voices). First one was better because of the notebook format. I'd leave it as a standalone.

    5. I enjoyed this book but it was missing that Dash & Lily fun!

    6. 2.5 StarsEver since I read Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares, I had been dying for a companion novel, so I was thrilled to see one being released. However, there is far less adventure in this story and Lily’s character is so negative. The constant negativity doesn’t make the book seem Christmassy at all, and I ended up being pretty disappointed with this one.The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily, like Dash and Lily’s Books of Dares, contains adventure, though definitely not as much as the first b [...]

    7. Dash & Lily's Book of Dares is one of my favourite YA festive novels. I've read it three times, over Christmas 2011, 2013 and 2016, so I was elated to discover that there would be a sequel.The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily is sadder, more melancholy than its predecessor. Lily's grandfather is sick and she's unable to appreciate her favourite season. For this new Lily, there's no magical Christmas tree and no festive reindeer skirt. She is depressed and grieving, insecure about both her rel [...]

    8. so cute!! i finished it in one sitting. this novel felt like a fan fiction to the original, which i adore. it made me miss new york so very much and put me in the christmas spirit. would definitely recommend if you're looking for a holiday pick-me-up!

    9. Ughhh Where do I begin???I didn't enjoy the first book in this series, 'Dash and Lily's Book of Dares' (review here) so I hear you ask why did I read the second one??? Combination of two things. First. I'd made the dreadful mistake of downloading this BEFORE I had read book one Oh such a rookie error. And second BUDDY READ!!!!! Things are ALWAYS more fun when you can piss and moan discuss things calmly and sensibly with a friend!! And this was book number two in my Christmas buddy read with Aman [...]

    10. This book review is dedicated to my girl, Lady Pim . . . also known as Annie ☆ a court of mist & books ☆ The Twelve Days of Dash and Lilyis the absolute cutest, had me cooing the whole time (well, not the first half, but you get my point.)After reading the first book over a year ago, I fell in love with Dash and Lily and their quirky personalities, random hilarity, and ridiculous lives. Reading book two was like rereading book one with the benefit of not having the plot revealed (if th [...]

    11. Adorable, Christmassy and all in all, a really enjoyable read. Dash & Lily's Book of Dares is one of my favourite contemporaries, so I was both extremely excited and slightly apprehensive when I heard it was getting a sequel. This wasn't what I was expecting from a Dash and Lily sequel, it wasn't all sparkles and Christmas magic and honestly, I loved that. I really appreciated that this focused on a side of the holiday season that often gets brushed over, the fact that for a lot of people, i [...]

    12. okay if this book doesn't put you in the holiday spirit then you're just a Scrooge anyways. This book is great, writing will keep you on the edge of your seat. and it's perfect for the hoilday season but it was a bit short sadly.

    13. This really helped to get me out of my mini reading slump, and it was a cute atmospheric read, but honestly---these kids are not relatable at all. The situations are so over the top but the family and friend dynamic and navigating a first love are all really cute so I can get over the Glitter Massacre and all the other insane shit that happens.

    14. "“We're librarians, sir. And we will not let you check out this future librarian unless you prove to us that you'll take good care of him when he's in your home.”Oh the dangers of expectation! Having absolutely loved Dash & Lily's Book of Dares, I couldn’t wait to read this much-wanted sequel. As my scoring shows, it wasn’t love at first sight… Well, it is a little more complicated than that.On the one side, it was so much fun to be reunited with these characters. Not just the main [...]

    15. Overall, I liked this, but it could be pretty slow and there were parts that began to annoy me. I liked the direction things were going with Lily at first, then she started into the whining and I got irritated. Before then, she was selflessly being worn down, and I thought the book would be about her friends and family giving back to her. And this did happen, but only after she started complaining and running away. This could have been handled a little better.Still, this sequel was charming enou [...]

    16. Alternate title: USE YOUR FUCKING WORDS. I mean. First of all, the Australian covers of this duology are the most godawful shit. Seriously. They're so, so ugly. We have Dash and Lily's Book of Dares at work and I can't persuade a single student to read it, even after nine months of trying. Which makes me sad, because the first book is super cute and I love it. This one, however, is a) depressing as all hell, and b) just flat out frustrating. Lily drove me absolutely nuts from start to finish. Sh [...]

    17. A sweet, Christmassy, romantic romp through New York City. Do try to read Dash and Lily's Book of Dares before you read this, but I think it stands alone as well. 12+*Please note: this review is meant as a recommendation only.

    18. Sería más bien un 3,5. No es de los que más me han gustado de David Levithan, y el primero me parece mejor, pero me ha gustado reencontrarme con Dash, Lily y la prosa combinada de estos dos autores. Recomendado.

    19. CUTE. I didn't like it as much as the first story, but still a fun holiday read.

    21. Actual rating: 2.5 stars Twelve Days of Dash and Lily is an unexpected sequel to Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares, one of the first books I remember reading when I first joined BookTube. In a way, I loved this book as just a nod to the nostalgic days of 2013, and when I was still in the habit of reading seasonal books in their appropriate season. (Will this finally be the year that My True Love Gave to Me is appreciated?) But what else did I enjoy…?P L O TFollowing a pattern similar to Book of [...]

    22. (Yes, I read this in October. I was too impatient to wait until a more sensible month in which to get to it.) I shall begin my review by saying that I rarely read YA, but very much enjoyed Dash and Lily's Book of Dares, and wanted to see where Cohn and Leviathan would take them next. The writing of both authors is heightened far above that of other YA tomes which I have read in the past. Nothing feels cliched or dumbed down, for want of a better phrase, and some of the prose here is just beautif [...]

    23. Manchmal ein bisschen schräg, aber sehr unterhaltsam und in meinen Augen besser und sympathischer als Band 1 🎄🎅🏻🎁💝3.5/5

    24. Sometimes I thought it was better than the first book, but in the end, I don't think so. It's still cute, though! :)

    26. I really enjoyed Dash and Lily from their first book, but this story just did not seem as good. It was woefully sad and did not have the excitement and wonder from the first book. Quick read though.Full review here: agingerlyreview.wordpressI have been in the Dash & Lily fan club since I read their story in 2014. I loved their crazy games and following clues. They were two lost souls that found each other and it was beautiful. I was over the moon excited to discover there was a continuation [...]

    27. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 4 starsChristmas makes every book better. I think I liked this second book better than the first (!) and loved the subtle references to Cohn & Levithan’s other books. And the quirkiness of their characters and writing. Also NYC is so romanticised buuuuut still so excited to go to the Strand one day (with my Strand tote - shout out to El) 📚
