From Twinkle, With Love by Sandhya Menon | 4-Star Review

Review: From twinkle, With Love by Sandhya Menon From Twinkle, with Love stars Twinkle Mehra, an Indian-American girl who’s dreamed of being a filmmaker for her whole life. At the beginning of the book, she’s done a few YouTube videos, but nothing big. That all changes when Sahil Roy – the nerdy brother of her crush, Neil – suggests that she create a movie for the upcoming Midsummer Night festival at school. He’ll produce, she’ll direct. It’s perfect – Twinkle will get to put herself out there (yikes) and she’ll also get to get closer to Neil – and to […]

Recent DNFs: American Panda and Meet Cute

Hey guys, hope you’re doing well. Today I have a couple of reviews for books that just didn’t work for me: American Panda by Gloria Chao and Meet Cute, a YA anthology. Check them out and let me know if you agree with my thoughts or not! ***** REVIEW: American Panda by Gloria Chao Oh man. American Panda is one I seriously wish I’d loved more. It’s got an Asian-American protagonist going to college with the baggage of a tiger mom, jilted dreams of being a dancer, tons of Mandarin, and a cute Japanese-American love interest. And yet, Mei’s story […]

Mini-Reviews: The Hating Game, Scrappy Little Nobody & Aimee and the Heartthrob

The Hating Game is on my favorites for this year. I read it in one day, one sitting, and I was utterly obsessed 20 percent in. Lucy and Josh work in an office together, and thanks to a merger, they have to sit across from each other and compete for the same job. As a result, the competition and hatred is at an all-time high. They throw witty,  dark insults at each other while both being great at their jobs. Things change when Lucy discovers that maybe the hate is not so hatey after all. Lucy and Josh’s banter is […]

All Things Grow With Love | The Runaway Princess by Hester Browne

All Things Grow With Love | The Runaway Princess by Hester Browne

Review: The Runaway Princess by Hester Browne stars Amy Wilde as an up-and-coming garden designer in London, hailing from small-town Yorkshire. On New Year’s Eve, her fun-loving best friend and roommate throws a party where she meets Leo, a fund manager that she instantly has an attraction to. What she doesn’t know is that he’s a prince, and Amy’s middle-class life is about to be turned upside-down. I really enjoyed the romance of The Runaway Princess. Leo’s fame did seem a bit contrived considering that he came from such a small principality, but I liked how normal he was and […]
