Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

The inside of the jacket cover describes this book perfectly :

“Nick’s just seen the girl who dumped him walk in.. with a new guy. What else can he do but ask the strange girl next to him to be his new girlfriend for the next five minutes?
Norah would do anything to avoid conversation with the non not-friend girl who dumped Nick… and to get over the Evil Ex whom Norah never really totally dumped. What else can she do but answer Nick’s question by making out with him?
With one electric, unexpected kiss, the five-minute couple of Nick and Norah set off on an uncharted adventure called the “first date” that wwill turn into an infinite night of falling in and out ( and in and out and maybe in and maybe out) of love. Theirs is a first date of music, laughter, heartache, confusion, passion, taxi driver wisdom, and a jacket named Salvatore. And of course a killer soundtrack.

As Nick and Norah wander through the middle-of-the-night mystic maze of Manhattan, they share the kind of night you want to never end, where every minute counts and every moment flicks between love and disaster.”

I really enjoyed this book, I defiantly didn’t want it to end, but of course ‘all good things must come to an end.’ David Levithan and Rachel Cohn are great together. I enjoyed the fact that the book was written from two different perspectives. This book reminded me of one of my favorite books “Scrambled Eggs at Midnight” by Brad Barkley &Heather Hepler. This book has been added to my list of favorite books and it will probably become a book that I read over and over.

I'm pretty excited about the movie.
I actually do like the people they cast for Nick and Norah, when I read the book I can really see them as Nick and Norah. I can't wait to see the movie and experience the awesome night they had in movie form lol.
