For a cosier Christmas YA read, David Levithan and Rachel Cohn’s The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily is a he-said, she-said romance about a couple struggling after a year together (the pair first met in Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares), and an attempt to rekindle Christmas magic in a world that seems a little too bleak for it to matter. The New York setting lends this quirky love story a glamour that will appeal to young teens…', Claire Hennessy, The Irish Times
'I loved being in the company of Dash & Lily and was so distraught when i finished the last page of The Twelve Days. I miss those guys. So David & Rachel if you ever read this post… then you must write a new one each Christmas to keep me going please.', Gill, The Book Magpie--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

It was so good to be back to Dash & Lily's world (and it's always Christmas!). Obviously, I still liked Dash & Lily's Book of Dares better (and I have just watched all the Netflix episodes, so I'm fangirling again), but it was quite satisfying to see the progress of their relationship, two years later.
True to their characters, Dash was still a grumpy old soul in a young body (figuratively, just to be clear this wasn't a fantasy/sci-fi!), and Lily was still an upbeat girl who saw the world through her rose-coloured glasses (albeit a lot less). They had been doing long-distance relationship because Dash was attending Oxford and Lily was growing her dog-walking business/insta-profile.
For a YA relationship story, Dash & Lily's was very interesting! Yes, of course they still went through the typical teenager things like coming-of-age, finding their identities, figuring out what they wanted to do in life both personally and professionally, and learning how to be in a relationship with each other. But their thought processes weren't boring at all, and Dash's books + Lily's dogs made them the more attractive to me.
For the book itself, some minor things - somehow the 'final' copy of the book I read still had a bunch of typos, like missing spaces between words and one of the chapters were titled '21st & 22rd December'. 23rd!! This was a tiny bit distracting, but didn't really disrupt me from enjoying the story.
All in all, I got a very warm Christmas feeling from the book. I closed the book with a big smile! Till next year, Dash & Lily!

As for the book itself, I haven't read it yet because this is the third book and I'm currently reading the second book. it's a very good book series for anyone ages 15+ because it's kinda vocab heavy.
