Twlight Crazy + Nick and Norah's Infinate Playlist

I read the whole each book in the Twilight saga one day a piece, i loved them SO much and couldn't get enough. Now that the movie is about to come out my whole school has been over-ran by Twilight! Almost EVERYONE is reading, has read, or is soon going to read Twilight. I would love to re-read all the books RIGHT NOW, but unfortunately I'm already busy enough with the stack of books waiting to be read.
I'm also thinking about changing my rating system to something that you might be able to look at and know how and why i liked the book without reading the review if you don't have time.
I believe that if a movie is being made that is based off a book, you have to read the book before seeing the movie. That is why I decided to read Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, before my friend and i go see it. I'm done reading and here is the review!!

****Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan****
(Summary borrowed from amazon) Cohn and Levithan contribute alternating chapters in this high-energy romance that follows two high-school seniors through a single, music-fueled night in Manhattan. Nick, the "Nonqueer bassist in a queercore band," is playing with The Fuck Offs, when he spots his ex-girlfriend, Tris. Once offstage, he propositions a girl he has never met, hoping to make Tris jealous: "Would you mind being my girlfriend for five minutes?" Norah, also heartbroken (and hoping Nick will drive her home), agrees. What begins as a spontaneous ploy turns into something surprising and real in the course of one night as Nick and Norah roam Manhattan, listen to bands, confront past hurts, and hurtle toward romance.

OH MY GOSH. I am soooo glad i decided to read this book! It was very short, but still very full. Everyone knows i love a funny book, and this book was definitely funny! All of the characters were very much developed, and told you more than enough about themselves. I usually walk away from a book disliking one or two characters but not this time. I easily find myself quoting this book. For example "Holy shit squared! I think I just had my first orgasm"- Norah. Every page was very enjoyable. I couldn't put this book down until i finished. Overall the book was short and hilarious, with various serious points. I would recommend Nick and Norah's to anybody up for a fast read, that will keep you wanting more.
I'm proud to say that Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist receives 5 out of 5 muffins!
