    " If you like young adult romance novels I think you'll like this one as well. It's a unique story as well, not your usual kind, it features a diverse cast of characters and a good narrative as well. I enjoyed it myself, it isn't usually the kind of genre I'm into personally, but I still enjoyed the book!"

    "John Green's books typically fall under the romance category, and Dash & Lily's Book of Dares does so as well. With a decent critical response, this novel follows the romance of two teenagers through a sort of "book hunt". Probably not the best if you're looking for something similar to John Green, but you could do a lot worse too."

    "This isn't a very good recommendation for books to read if you like John Green. While the topic is somewhat similar to the some of the ones that John Green has written, the writing style and point of view are incredibly different."

    "If you like John Green's tragic teen stories, then you'll probably enjoy 13 Reasons Why. It can be too dark for some, as it deals with teen suicide, but I feel the message of how our small actions can affect others greatly comes through. I hope all who read it will come away wanting to be kind always because we never know what someone else may be going through. "

    "I'll Give You the Sun is a well written, imaginative, sophisticated book full of image evoking detail. The characters are well developed through their relationships with others and their passion for the visual arts. At its essence, the book is about inseparable twins separated by the loves they find in their lives and where that leaves them in life."

    "I liked this book because of the adventure the young girl is lead on by her deceased Aunt. She is provided envelopes of things to do one by one and there are conditions to each adventure she takes making it quite interesting overall. There were things I didn't understand but it only made me want to read it more so I could see if perhaps it would be explained later on in the story. I like stories of adventure, wrapped in wisdom. They keep you engaged for hours and this book didn't disappoint in that regard. "
