I love Rachel Cohn‘s and David Levithan‘s books, especially the ones they co-write. All the books are sort of interconnected with each other and just major fun! Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares is among my all time favourite Christmas-themed books and I just love the book as well as the movie adaptation of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist starring Michael Cera and Kat Dennings. I’m still listening to that soundtrack from time to time!
Now, they’ve made Naomi & Ely’s No Kiss List into a movie with Victoria Justice as Naomi, Pierson Fodé as Ely and the ever so dreamy Matthew Daddario (soon to be seen as Alec in Shadowhunters) as Gabriel. I think the Trailer below is pretty self-explanatory, but here’s a little summary nonetheless:
Naomi and Ely are best friends and they are both into guys. In order to avoid possible conflict they have a No Kiss List and guys on that list are taboo for both of them. When Naomi and Ely each develop feelings for someone they shouldn’t, their friendship is majorly on the brink of getting destroyed.
It’s, to be honest, been a while since I read the book, but I remember maaaany emojis and finding them confusing at times. I’m guessing I won’t have the problem this time around. Cast looks great to me and I cannot wait for the release of the film. It’s already been shown at the Outfest in Los Angeles, but it will take some time until it gets into cinemas. Until then, they have this thing called the No Kiss Club where you can join, earn points and win stuff. It’s not really necessary for the full movie experience, but I am so looking forward to this that I thought, “Why not?”. I’m not going to win because there are already people with thousands and thousands of points, but it never hurts to support a movie you genuinely care about. So, if you want to join as well, it’d be great if you just follow the link below and the rest will be explained on site.
