A sexy, funny roller coaster of a story about one date over one very long night in New York. Nick and Norah are both suffering from broken hearts. So when Nick sees the girl who dumped him walk in with a new guy he asks the strange girl next to him to be his girlfriend for the next five minutes. Norah would do anything to avoid conversation with the not-friend girl who dumped Nick, and get over the Evil Ex whom Norah never quite broke up with. And so she agrees. What follows is an epic first date between two people who are just trying to figure out who they want to be – and where the next great band is playing.
Before I start: You may be interested to know my Week 1 of Mental Health Month is now up on Tumblr! You can read it here.
This book is definitely sexy! I love the easy feel of this book. It’s definitely one to read if you love contemporary YA and romance!
You may remember me reading Naomi & Ely’s No Kiss List and finding it a little confusing, but this one was definitely better. In both books there appear to be many different characters, but I liked how Nick & Norah had only, well, Nick & Norah.
That’s something I’d like to mention in this all-over-the-place review. I really liked the two characters. It was good to have the two viewpoints, but not confusing. I don’t think this book could work any other way!
I liked a lot about this book. The plot was good, and I liked the idea of it being panned over just a night, with all the detail included!
I also liked the writing, it was simple, and it made me feel like I knew exactly what both characters were thinking. The only downside about this book would be the actual love. This book is definitely insta-love, but maybe I should have expected that. I am definitely one to prefer people falling in love over a longer period of time, so if you do too, make sure you expect insta-love!
Overall, I liked this book. It was an easy, quick, casual and sexy read, but it wasn’t incredible. Definitely worth the read, but not one of my absolute favourites.
