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 […]

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 […]

With a little more depth than your regular chicklits, With or Without You by Carole Matthews has a different flavour. I have no shame or embarrassment in saying I read Chick-lit- and a lot of it.

Book Reviews- Love from Paris by Alexandra Potter

I just finished reading Alexandra Potter’s ‘Love from Paris’. I can say, blindly, that I have always enjoyed reading Alexandra’s books, she has her way with words, and I was more than over-joyed she was doing a sequel to ‘The Love Detective’.  The novel starts with a very flat tone, not revealing the actual underlying story of […]

Book Review: You’re the One that I Don’t Want by Alexandra Potter

We spend out life pining after “the one that got away”, because that person was “the ONE”. This book is the perfect example of how the image we create and the thinking porridge we make up of scenarios in our head can, obviously, turn out completely opposite. SO, you kissed under the bridge in Venice […]
