Naomi & Ely’s No Kiss List Trailer Release

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.

What are your thoughts?

I dare you to read this book!

Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares is one of my most favorite teen novels out there. It is written by the amazing authors Rachel Cohn and David Levithan,who brought us Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist.

ImageThe book is fresh, sassy, hilarious and beautiful all in one; but let me start by telling you what it’s about: The story starts out with Dash finding a red Moleskin notebook in a bookstore in New York. A few instructions written in it, lead him on a bookish treasure hunt until he finds himself entering into correspondance with Lily, the author of the book. Shortly after that, Lily and Dash start sending each other messages via the notebook, and send each other on an adventure around the whole city. If they meet and what they actually mean to each other, that’s something you’ll only find out by reading the book.

I can recommend this book with all my heart (particularly if you’re looking for a good read during Christmas time)! It is brilliantly written, and I especially liked the change of point of view between the two main characters throughout the whole book. You have to know that the two authors didn’t write the book with each other in the traditional way. They each took a turn in writing a chapter by themself and then sent it to the other person, so, that they wouldn’t know what to expect when they had to continue writing.

Just like Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist (starring Michael Cera and Kat Dennings), they are planning on making it into a movie. It is not really certain when it will come out, but I seriously can’t wait.

Have you read the book as well? What do you think about it?
