    1. A few years ago I posted a far too personal blog on MySpace ok, so maybe it was than a few years ago offering a retrospective analysis of select mortifying excepts from my circa age 14 journal note not a diary It s the only year I kept one, and thank god, because while it s perhaps worthwhile to have a snapshot of what I was thinking and feeling at that particular, tumultuous time in my life, what I was thinking and feeling was stupid and the way I went about putting it into words was even wors [...]


    2. My wife loved this book and dragged me to the movie shortly after it came out I thought the movie was cute a better than average teen romance set in my old stomping grounds of New York City s Greenwich Village and Soho On leaving the theater, I soon heard from my wife how much better the book was, and how disappointing the movie was I guess it s all a question of what you re expecting going inI started reading the book as soon as we got home.It opens with a great hook Nick sees his ex girlfriend [...]


    3. I have yet to read a David Levithan book that doesn t move me I ADORE his writing style I also ADORE his mind The way he thinks, the way his characters think It s very curious They often do the unexpected.Honestly, this wouldn t have worked if it had been written by somebody else The faking you have a girlfriend thing is so overdone I would have cried of exasperation if it had been what this book was all about.Luckily it s not By the way, Rachel Cohn does a good job of writing Norah s chapters a [...]


    4. This book left such a bad taste in my mouth Where do I begin First, the language was ridiculous This is supposed to be a young adult book, yet I can t tell you how many times the authors over used the word fuck Why In most of the situations it was totally unnecessary and sounded like they were trying too hard to impress their young readers I understand that fuck is a word just like anything else, but just like every other word in the English language, it does not need to be the only verb or adje [...]


    5. DISCLAIMER I wrote this review several years agoI ve grown since then and I realize this review is very BASHING I really try hard not to write bashing reviews now because there s an author on the other end of a book Still, I don t want to censor this review because it was what I felt at the time I read it and I still agree with the majority of the sentiments I wanted to let you know I would approach my review an entirely different way if I had written it now 7 13Nick sees his old girlfriend comi [...]


    6. Reviewed by Me for TeensReadTooBefore I start the story that is Nick and Norah, I decided we needed to get some misconceptions out of the way first 1 I don t live in Manhattan, so I won t understand what the characters are talking about Wrong I don t live in Manhattan actually, I ve never been farther East than Ohio, but I still got the gist of the story quite easily Sure, I might never have visited Times Square, but I ve been on the Square in my hometown population 3,400 , and the same types of [...]


    7. This book is FUCKING EPIC So there I think all YA lit is exaggerated in a sense, not in a bad way, but in an interesting way who wants to read about just the ordinary Of course, I could just be saying this because it was done well here I bet you anything the next YA book I read, I ll be griping about it being too unrealistic What s the difference then Writing Levithan and Cohn s writing is sooo gorgeous in that witty but not so witty you re annoying and pretentious kind of way And even if Nick a [...]


    8. This is probably the worst book I ve read to date, and I wouldn t post this review if I thought it would have a negative impact on the authors careers But it won t so here goes There s absolutely no character development here, none The love story never really gets started or I probably had something else in mind for a story We stay in Norah s mind soooo much it feels claustrophobic, and trust me, that s not a mind you want to be in for too long The F bomb is dropped on almost every page by every [...]


    9. Antes que nada, me gustar a disculparme por haber estado tan perdido de esta red, por no haber le do lo suficiente y tambi n por no estar ah para recomendarles libros La nica excusa que creo que es valida para justificar mi ausencia es el hecho de que The Vampire Diaries termin y aunque no era la mejor serie del mundo, fue una gran e importante parte de mi vida desde que la empec por all del 2010 Como se imaginar n, qued devastado por un tiempo luego de ver el ltimo cap tulo, sin embargo, estoy [...]


    10. Finally done Just over a week to get through a slim 183 pages Blech 17 year old Suzanne would have loved this book 30 year old Suzanne hated it I feel like it tried too hard And the f bomb is used way too gratuitously It s not even used for emphasis s sake.Example Normal Human I am going to take out the trash right now.Nick and or Norah I am going to f %ing take out the f %ing trash right f %ing now.Is this how the teens are talking these days


    11. Nick and Norah meet in a punk rock club one night when Nick asks Norah to be his 5 minute girlfriend Why Because Nick s ex, Tris, is in the club with her new man and Tris broke Nick s heart From that point on, Nick and Norah recognize the chemistry between them, but their feelings are compromised by their previous relationships.The book is okay Just okay Told in stream of consciousness chapters alternating between Nick s point of view and Norah s, some of it becomes repetitive although this tech [...]


    12. On the emo punk oh whatever, EMO music scene in New York City, Nick and Norah meet and fall in love over a single, remarkable night Unfortunately, what had the potential to be a great book fails in its execution.The trouble with a co written book Cohn and Levithan wrote alternating chapters, sending the manuscript back and forth is that half the writing I liked a lot Cohn s and half the writing I damn near hated Levithan s I like wordplay I do not, however, like it nearly as much as Levithan Aft [...]


    13. Read this back in high school All the music and the love got me completely obsessed.And don t even let me start on the huge girl crush I had on Tris, please.I m still not over how disastrously awful the movie adaptation was, though, especially the cast choices They casted Michael Cera as Nick FRIGGIN MICHAEL CERA I ll never not be mad about it.



    14. I envision Nick working somewhere like The Strand which was featured in Dash Lily s Book of Dares and now I understand some of the places that were mentioned in that book and the bathroom writing on the wall they mentioned in Dash Lily s Book of Dares by the same authors.After reading it I was trying to think of what the writing reminded me of, what with all the musical references and the language used, and I went back to my Textual Healing review and thought, YES It s like a feel good teen roma [...]


    15. Novels written by two authors can go one of two ways they can be really cool, or really bad Happily, writers of young adult novels seem to have a knack for working in collaboration Nick and Norah s Infinite Playlist from 2006 was written by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan Cohn wrote Norah s part and Levithan wrote Nick s part, but they are not really Nick and Norah.The story starts in the middle of the night or is it the beginning of the morning at a club on Ludlow Street in New York City Nick is [...]


    16. We are graced, and we are together, and the twoliness is trumping the loneliness and the doubt and the fear.I actually liked this a lot I had a minor issue with it, but other than that it was a fun and short read I ve come to expect great things from David Levithan and Rachel Cohn Their characters are always so real and believable, and the struggles we read about are things most of us have actually been through and therefore can totally relate to.The worst The language in this is way too overdon [...]


    17. PEOPLE PEOPLE PEOPLE THERE IS GONNA BE A LOOOOOOTT OF SCREAMING AND SWEARING BACK AWAY NOW IF YOU WANT TO Someone What s your least favorite book Me has flashbacks of gagging while reading this book I M NOT THE ONE TO GIVE OUT ANGRY REVIEWS BECAUSE I HAVE RESPECT FOR AUTHORS WORKS BUT THIS BOOK THIS BOOK I DON T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START WITH THIS FUCKING MESS I WOULD RATHER DIP MY FACE IN A CORROSIVE ACID THAN READ THIS BOOK I WOULD RATHER SIT DOWN AND WATCH CHEESY HORROR MOVIES FROM THE 80s THA [...]


    18. I noticed this book in our house my mom was reading it, and the cover both intrigued me and repelled me However, after my mom s recommendation, I read this book and loved it It is one of the most dead on accurate books I ve ever read about young emotions and feelings The initial plot is slightly contrived a heartbroken teenager sees his ex with her new guy and asks a girl to pretend she s his girlfriend However, the story is told by both Nick and Norah s point of view, so the reader is allowed i [...]


    19. 3.75 5 i ve been in a slump these past few months so managing to finish this novel in less than 24 hours is a huge shocker which is to say, i thoroughly enjoyed NICK NORAH S INFINITE PLAYLIST i didn t realize but i needed something light, fun, carefree, and clich this was exactly thatis book was short and addictive i loved the predictable situations and unique characters although i didn t find anything deliberately special about this novel, i m very grateful to have picked it up because i think [...]


    20. Please note that I did not give this book any stars I rounded up to one star on.I read this for Romance Book Bingo 2017 Insta love square This is going to be a bit ranty so I apologize in advance I loathed this book From beginning to end I can t believe that a movie that I enjoyed spun off from this source material I think at one time I wonder how many times Nick said the f word and decided I was too lazy to do a search via my Kindle because I just wanted this book to be over At least it counted [...]


    21. What happens when Nick s ex girlfriend shows up while he s trying to have a decent night He makes quick introductions to Norah and strikes a deal to be each other s date for the next 5 minutes Add in a sighting of Norah s ex boyfriend and the 5 minutes extend little by little into an all night getting to know you and maybe falling a little bit in love experience.This book has a certain writing style that should just drive me mad It s So Abrupt Halting Aggressive Angry Confused Generally I d want [...]


    22. I totally dig this book It surprised me because I didn t think the movie looked promising at all, and after having read the book I can honestly say I never want to see the movie Michael Cera as Nick Not a stellar casting decision Nick O Leary deserved better Oh well Setting that atrocity of cinema aside for a momentThis book does have its flaws, the major one being the musical elitism But if you can look past that, you can see two people who come together under somewhat unusual circumstances, do [...]


    23. Street Corner TBR ChallengeMay Pick 5 per Tina.I don t know if I have ever read a book that I had already watched the movie for If I have I can t think of it I usually read the book first and make myself wait to watch the movie But, for whatever reason I didn t wait with Nick and Norah Hearing the movie was better than the book might have gave me the push It was a cool experience though I knew exactly how to picture the characters I imagined them the entire time I kept picturing scenes from the [...]


    24. This book was such a disappointment for me The characters seem overly quirky, like something out of John Green novel which isn t a positive for me, sorry There s just nothing special about this book It s yet another addition to the aggressively heterosexual, aggressively quirky genre, which shocked me coming from David Levithan This genre works when the characters and realities of life truly shine through, in books like Perks Of Being A Wallflower and some of David Levithan s other books However [...]


    25. 3.25 stars I actually quite enjoyed this read it was entertaining, fun, cute, humorous, fast paced, and the characters were really likable It wasn t amazing in my opinion , or a new favorite of mine or anything, but I liked it Definitely worth the read, since it s also very, very short.


    26. Plot When Nick and Norah meet in a NYC rock club, they have no idea that they are about to embark upon a romantic relationship Nick just wants a girlfriend for five minutes in order to make his ex jealous, but there s something about Norah that leaves him wanting after she kisses him in response to his asking for a five minute girlfriend The two end up spending the night together in NYC and begin to fall for each other.Evaluation I have to say that just like Doing It and Forever, sex is talked [...]


    27. While Twilight was a psychological nightmare, I found it tolerable to read than Nick Norah I was am ashamed of myself when I had wasted time having reached halfway of this book than when I read a few free chapters of Twilight The Nick and Norah characters well, to be honest, all the characters were shallow Let me summarize the book to those who haven t read it, from Nick s POV Ex is coming over Time to protect ego Find the next girl and have her pretend she s my new girlfriend Norah spotted If [...]


    28. I don t know how the world broke And I don t know if there s a God who can help us fix it But the fact that the world is broken I absolutely believe that Just look around us Every minute every single second there are a million things you could be thinking about A million things you could be worrying about.Our world don t you just feel we re becoming and fragmented I used to think that when I get older, the world would make so much sense But you know what The older I get, the confusing it is [...]
