Countdown to Christmas: Week Three - Review: The 12 Days of Dash and Lily by Levithan/Cohn

Hey guys! Now for our regularly scheduled Sunday night post, haha, it's Week Three of the Countdown to Christmas here on The Arts Shelf! Today I have a review of one of my favourite sequels and that is The 12 Days of Dash and Lily by Levithan/Cohn. This series was recommended to me by one of my best friends and I absolutely love these characters. I hope you enjoy.

Dash and Lily have been dating for nearly a year, but when Lily’s beloved grandfather falls ill, the repercussions take their toll on everyone. Even though they are still together, somehow the magic has gone out of their relationship and it’s clear that Lily has fallen out of love with life.

Action must be taken! Dash teams up with Lily’s brother and a host of their friends, who have just twelve days to get Lily’s groove back in time for Christmas.

The 12 Days of Dash and Lily was such a wonderful Christmas read as well as a wonderful sequel. To not only be back with two of my favourite characters but being in their (and my own) favourite holiday as well was just a dream. The feeling of Christmas imbued in each page I never wanted it to end! I bought a copy in London last November and pretty much read it in a day it was that good. I adored it.

I'll admit that part of me was a little skeptical about Lily losing her Christmas spirit, being that it was one of the major elements of the first book, but at the same time it was part of what I loved about this book too. I loved seeing Dash and her family/friends rally around her and get up to all the adventures they have to try and save Lily's cheer. It was wonderful.

As always Dash was utterly adorable, as was their relationship. There's a lot of fun times in this book, and a lot of Christmassy feels. It really was pretty much perfect. I can't fault it one ounce. It's the perfect book to curl up with once all the Christmas Day madness is over. Definitely 5 stars!
