Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
I finished Nick and Norah's a few days ago, and finally got around to reviewing it. Before I post the summary I just wanted to say that I fairly enjoyed this book, it was exciting and fun to read. So here is the summary:
It all starts when Nick asks Norah to be his girlfriend for five minutes. He only needs five minutes to avoid his ex-girlfriend, who’s just walked in to his band’s show. With a new guy. And then, with one kiss, Nick and Norah are off on an adventure set against the backdrop of New York City—and smack in the middle of all the joy, anxiety, confusion, and excitement of a first date.
As I said before, this was really fun to read. Though it was a good book, it wasn't my favorite from from these authors. I haven't read any of Rachel Cohn's books yet, but I have to say that I enjoyed Are We There Yet by David Levithan more than this. Compared to Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List (The other book Rachel and David co-wrote together) I liked them the same. But if I were to put them side by side and try to "summarize" them, I would say that Nick and Norah's is more exciting and thrilling than Naomi and Ely's. Both books are great, and I encourage you to read them...also Nick and Norah's just came out in theaters about a week ago, I haven't seen it yet.. but the actors who are in it are awesome.
Silence is silver, but Books are golden!
