Book Review: Dash and Lily Series

Back in November I found the Netflix series Dash & Lilly and really enjoyed it. Over the Christmas season I rewatched it since it was based during Christmas time and absolutely loved it even more than the first time.

So I dived into researching all about it and came across the book series. 

Of course, I needed to read all three books. 

I started my 2021 book challenge off with the series. I did like the similarities and some differences from the book to the Netflix series in Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares. 

Overall I loved continuing their story and reading the characters grow. I absolutely loved every character. 

I am keeping my fingers crossed that the rest of the series can be brought to life on screen

While we are talking about on screen here are some of the differences I noticed;

  1. The note asks for his email address.
  2. No slam poetry, another book instead.
  3. Dash asked Lily to leave her a book at the strand with the notebook instead of at the pizzeria.
  4. Dash takes the notebook and leaves her the Godfather and note with 2 boots pizza flyer.
  5. Lily goes to 2 boots pizza and reads the note that is a poem when she realizes the pizza place is also a video store.
  6. Lily looks for the Godfather and finds Godfather part 3 with a note.
  7. Lily is asked to leave a non Christmas movie with Amanda at front desk.
  8. She leaves Miracle on 34th street with clues to Macys.

  13. Dash takes it and runs to a dressing room in the mens section where the envelope says to return the notebook with your best memory of Christmas.
