Synopsis

Emme is a sophomore in high school who starts dating, Brendon Agretti, the popular senior who happens to be a senator’s son and well-known for his good looks. Emme feels out of her comfort zone in Brendon’s world and it doesn’t help that his picture perfect ex, Lauren, seems determined to get back into his life, along with every other girl who wants to be the future Mrs. Agretti. Emme is already conflicted due to the fact her last boyfriend cheated on her and her whole world is off kilter with her grandpa’s health issues. Life suddenly seems easier keeping Brendon away and relying on her crystals and horoscopes to guide her. Emme soon starts to realize she needs to focus less on the stars and more on her senses. Can Emme get over her insecurities and make her relationship work? Life sure is complicated when you’re dating the it guy.

My Review

After being cheated by her ex-boyfriend, Emma is reluctant to date another guy again. She meets Brendon, one of the most famous boys in her school. Lots of girls closely tail Brendon not to mention his ex-girlfriend. She has many insecurities in relationships. Emma goes through many things in her life. Her grandmother is hospitalized and her grandfather is showing symptoms of Dementia. She is very close to her grandparents and finds it difficult to cope with all these drama going on in her life.

Emma believes in numerology, horoscopes and crystals. She tries to find solutions to her problems in them. Finally she believes that all the stars are in her favour, since she finds her soul mate.

Emma is a wonderful girl, who loves her family. She goes thorough many ups and downs in her life. She is a vegan, believes in horoscopes, loves her family and pretty much concerns about good grades in class. I loved how the character of  Emma has been created. She speaks volumes about hidden problems, insecurities in life and dealing with them.

The story is wonderful and the characters too. There is a deeper meaning to the plot, and important life lessons for the readers.

My Rating

Hello Booklovers!!!

Foe today’s book review, I thank the author, Krysten Lindsay Hager for sending me a free copy of the ebook, in exchange for a honest review. I read the first book of this series and fell in love with the story, so when Krysten emailed me to ask, if I could read and review the second book, I was more than happy to do it.

Synopsis

Cecily wants a big life, but can she handle it?

Cecily feels like she has it all: great best friends, the beginnings of a career as a model/actress, and she’s dating her favorite singer, Andrew Holiday. Then Cecily’s best friend Lila begins to ditch her every time Lila’s boyfriend calls. Cecily feels lost, but she and Andrew begin connecting more and she’s never been in a relationship where she felt so understood. Andrew even begins to confide in her about his anxiety. Soon Cecily experiences her own anxiety on a magazine photo shoot, but she manages to impress the magazine staff. Just when it seems like all her dreams are coming true, everything comes crashing down when a photo of Andrew with another girl appears online. He swears nothing happened, but Cecily is crushed. She feels like she’s lost two of the people closest to her.

Was her perfect relationship real or was she in over her head?

My Review

As I mentioned before, I have read the very first book of this series. Therefore I did not hesitate to read the second one. This is what made me the book so special to me;

  1. The Characters – Specially the character of Andrew, made me want him as my boyfriend 🙂 😉 He is understanding and he is the type of boyfriend, every girl wishes for.
  2. The story deal with a few deep topics, such as anxiety, dealing with anxiety and relationships at a deeper level.
  3. Completely romantic and cute, full of love and drama.
  4. Speaks to the hearts of the reader, I feel specially to the young once (not forgetting not so young once, like myself 🙂 )
  5. The  book can be called as a clean young adult book.
  6. It is well related with the first book, but it can be read as a stand alone too.

I told Krysten, that I will need more time to read this book, since my schedule is way too busy, but here I am finished reading the book in a couple of days. It was that nice and sweet. Helped me to forget some problems that I was facing, and allowed me to get myself buried in the cute love story of Cecily and Andrew.

Finally it is OUT!!!! I am EXCITED!!! Here is my Guess……

Hello All!!!

After reading the heading of today’s post, I know most of you might be totally lost. Fear not, since I will take you  out of the darkness!!! :):):)

Today’s post is about a book that was supposed to be released in 2018, which is now already released. I was super excited about it and finally yesterday, I purchased the book via Amazon, and now I am totally impatient, to start reading it. And the most excited book that I was waiting for is…….

From Twinkle with Love by Sandhya Menon

36373464.jpg

Synopsis

Aspiring filmmaker and wallflower Twinkle Mehra has stories she wants to tell and universes she wants to explore, if only the world would listen. So when fellow film geek Sahil Roy approaches her to direct a movie for the upcoming Summer Festival, Twinkle is all over it. The chance to publicly showcase her voice as a director? Dreams come true. The fact that it gets her closer to her longtime crush, Neil Roy—a.k.a. Sahil’s twin brother? Dream come true x 2.

When mystery man “N” begins emailing her, Twinkle is sure it’s Neil, finally ready to begin their happily-ever-after. The only slightly inconvenient problem is that, in the course of movie-making, she’s fallen madly in love with the irresistibly adorkable Sahil.

Twinkle soon realizes that resistance is futile: The romance she’s got is not the one she’s scripted. But will it be enough? (from Goodreads)

My Guess and thoughts about the Book

After reading When Dimple met Rishi, I fell in love with the writing style of Sandhya Menon. Being and Indian, and living in the USA, the author shares the multicultural influence in her writing. When these two, vastly different cultures come together, it creates a wonderful set up for the story.

The importance of the culture and being adhered to the values is not an easy task, if you’re residing in a different country. I think that is the main reason why I love the books by Sandhya Menon, so much.

Published on the 22nd of May, 2018, I was totally excited about the whole book release thing. Was waiting till I get a hold of it. Alas, I was able to get the eBook, via Amazon yesterday. After reading the synopsis I was totally into it.

The book is about a young girl named Twinkle, and how love finds its way, at the most unexpected places and moments. I know some people might call this naïve, but my idea is that, it is super interesting to read about, how love find its way at the most unexpected times. I am sure the characters and the plot will be wonderful as always.

I know,  I will enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed, When Dimple met RishiDo check out my blog and stay tuned for the review, once I have completed the book.

Until next post,

XOXOX
