Book Review: ‘The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris’ by Jenny Colgan

This book gave me legit diabetes. It was too sweet from the start to the finish, given it’s got a title that mentions ‘chocolate’. The book has two protagonists, Anna and Claire- Claire used to be Anna’s French teacher- and Anna’s miserable accident landed her in the hospital, and for Claire, it was another chemo…

Book Review: ‘A Kept Woman’ by Louise Bagshawe

‘A Kept Woman’ was a birthday present from my friend, Lucy (Hi Lucy!!). She appreciates my taste for cheesy romance novels and the author being one of her favorite, she wanted me to read her. Needless to say, I was super excited! So, after having it for 2 months, I finally got around to reading…

Book Review: ‘Just Haven’t Met You Yet’ by Cate Woods

I ordered this book off Amazon to Delhi when I was there last. I had ordered like 15 books- and this was one of them. It’s Cate Woods debut novel and it came highly recommended from all the GoodReads reviews. The book is very interesting, and the protagonist, Percy James SUPER hilarious. The book, based…

Book Review: ‘Going La La’ by Alexandra Potter

If you don’t know already, I’m a sucker for contemporary chick-lit/romance novels. Alexandra Potter’s ‘Do You Come Here Often’ is actually one of my favourite books to read. I’ve been trying to get my hands on Going La La for quite some time, seeing as it was her second novel and was released in 2001…

Book Review: Who’s that Girl by Mhairi McFarlane

You know there’s a longing you feel for something that’s finished- or as the protagonist, Edie in ‘Who’s that girl’ put it- saudade . A profound longing for something or someone that is absent and might never return. That’s how I felt at the end of the book- a feeling of saudade.  I’ve always been…

Book Review: ‘How to Find Love in Bookshop’ by Veronica Henry

I’ve been trying to finish this book for over a month now, which is never a good way to start a book review- I know. Usually, between my work, workout, writing and actual reading- I take about a week to finish a book but this took a long time. There’s a reasonable explanation- the book…

Pride and Prejudice (And why it’s still apt) Part 1

I was 11 years old when I first got my hands on the ‘Pride and Prejudice’. While it wasn’t the first novel I read (that one’s ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ by Roald Dahl), it was certainly my first love story. Fast-forwarding to today, some 13 years later, I still treasure the book. Written over…

Book Review: Do You Come Here Often? by Alexandra Potter

I’m not sure if I’ve said this before but I LOVE Alexandra Potter.She has an amazing way of writing- that I, especially am a fan of. Do You Come Here Often was the first that I read of Alexandra. Let me start by saying that these are for those who are inclined to reading about…

Book Review: The Year I Met You by Cecelia Ahern

“I always thought that being helped was a loss of control, but you must allow someone to help you, you must want someone to help you, and only then can the act begin.” I’ve always been a fan of Cecelia Ahern, her narration and plots have their way of weaselling into my heart. And The Year…

Book Review: ‘You Had Me At Hello’ by Mhairi McFarlane

“Do nothing, and nothing happens. Life is about decisions. You either make them or they’re made for you, but you can’t avoid them” I’m the kind of person who is very easy to please. Although this isn’t how I should start to review something- but it’s true. I like to the see the good in…
