Visit ‘Pictures of Lily’ on Goodreads…

The first part of the book is set 10 years past, where 16 year old Lily moves to Australia from the UK with her mother. There she falls in love with an older guy, Ben, that becomes to be one of the most significant and constant feeling of hers. Then the book fast forwards to the present day, where Lily, engaged to Richard, once again crosses path with Ben. And thus starts the complications begin. This is slow burn, heart warming romance being hilarious at times. This is a love triangle done right!

First, Paige Toon is an AMAZING author. Her writing style is so easy that you just fly through the pages! I finished reading it in a day, even though the pace falters a bit in the second part of the story. Also loved, how the long epilogue made up for some gaps that I really wished to be filled in. The narrative is fluffy yet you feel strong emotions.😍😍 The characters likable.

This book is reminds you what it’s like to be young and in love. This book is also about timing. This book is about loooooooove.

My Rating: 4/5

What We Find by Robyn Carr|Giveaway|Blog Tour|Book Review

Today’s my stop for the blog your of What We Find by Robyn Carr. It’s the first installment of the Sullivan’s Crossing series. Thank you HQ stories and Mills and Boon for the warm cookies along with ARC. *All views are honest and my own.


Title: What We Find

Author: Robyn Carr

Pages: 376 pages (Paperback)

Genre: Romance

Publisher: Mills & Boon

Neurosurgeon Maggie Sullivan knows she needs to slow down before she burns out completely, and the best way she can do that is by heading home to Sullivan’s Crossing.

Indulging in the simple way of life should be the perfect escape. But Maggie’s world is rocked and she must take responsibility for the Crossing.

When quiet and serious Cal Jones, offers to lend a hand, Maggie is suspicious of his motive. Though as Cal and Maggie spend more time together it gives Maggie hope for something brighter just on the horizon

Visit ‘What We Find’ on Goodreads…

The novel starts with Maggie getting tangled in a lawsuit and her having a miscarriage. Upon that, the man in her life, Andrew, turns out to be an absolutely unsupportive ass. Completely devastated, Maggie decides to take break and visit her Dad in Colorado. Where she finally comes across Cal Jones! Our Main Guy!!

Cal has a baggage of his own and so does Maggie. Their relationship takes a sweet time to build and that makes it more real. Their romance is adorable and mature. It’s the one you root for with all your might. The writing-the storytelling, is all beautiful and you can literally picture the landscape. The characters are fleshed out so well that you can even bet you’ve already known Maggie for years!


What We Find is a character driven book according to me. It’s the emotions and a very honest portrayal of it, that drives the plot. I absolutely devoured this book. Specially the sharp conscience with which Carr’s narrative. What We Find is a book that will make sure it has all your attention.

This book is about new beginnings. And provided me with a sense of comfort and hope. I’ll definitely recommend What We Find by Robyn Carr to everyone.

My Rating: 5/5

Kasie West is an author I got introduced to in 2018. So far I’ve read 2 novel of hers and 1 short story. Here are the mini reviews of the 2 novels I’ve read of hers.

1. By Your Side: It was just a fine read for me. Though the characters were gorgeous and charming, the plot was unnecessarily complicated. I did not like how West tried to tackle the love triangle. What she tried, required a thorough exploration of emotions and that was not done. It was a fluffy YA and should have been kept at just that! I don’t like things done half way. Like if you want to do a chick lit, ace that. Don’t try to throw in some complications just for the sake of some brownie critic points! Specially if you can’t do justice to that!

Though brooding and mysterious Dax, gets it a 3.5☆ from me.


2. Fill-in Boyfriend, is a slow burn feel-good romance with the ‘fake dating trope’. It instantly became one of my favourite YA contemporary romances. Light, simple and fluffy, this book is a perfect weekend read. Hayden and Hannah will make you swoon!

It’s a 5☆ from me.


Have you read a Kasie West? What’s your thought on these?😀

Title: Wake Up, Girl!

Author: Niharika Jindal

Pages: 248 pages (Paperback)

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Coming-of-Age

Publication Date: November 10, 2018

Publisher: Bloomsbury India

Naina is back from America, after four years of living on her own. A natural rebel, she has had some fairly life-altering experiences which Mum and Dad would not approve of at all if they get to know. But will her spirit and her stand be enough to fight the forces of parental pressure and heckling aunties baying for her nuptials?
Back in the bosom of her conservative family, Naina cannot even begin to imagine the turn her life is going to take. It’s wedding season, and she must now be married. Because every self-respecting upper-middle-class family in India do that, right? Marriage at the ‘right age’ to the ‘right family’
whether she likes it or not.
Naina’s worst nightmares are about to come true. What hits her within a week of being at home completely changes her world and her life as she embarks on a journey that will define her and provide her an education that only life can.
Ayaan, Rohan, Akshay, Shiven. Who will it be? Will she even have a shot at romance, being with someone she loves, irrespective of his caste, respectability or bank balance? She will have to summon all the chutzpah within to fight for herself. For her notions of love and living.
Will she succeed? Like a chrysalis unfolding, will Naina, too, emerge with her wings unscathed?

Visit “Wake Up, Girl” on Goodreads…

As soon as Naina returns home from Boston after completing her post graduation, she is faced with the parental pressure of getting married. And if you come from a conservative society and have had heard people comment on “THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED” you’ll know how it completely messes up with your head. How it triggers self doubts and how it strips off your confidence. This book Wake Up, Girl is the about one such girl.

It’s the coming of age story of Naina. It’s about how she transforms from a timid clueless girl to a head strong confidant woman. It’s about Naina challenging the social stereotypes and taking charge of her own life, carving a path for herself!

Wake Up, Girl by Niharika Jindal is light, fluffy and a quick read! The book is relatable on so many levels but it’s the subtle humours and quick comments that hits the spot!

I infact find rom-coms by Indian authors quite enjoyable and this book was exactly IT with some solid Bollywood drama!!😍 Simple story-telling and extensive character development added to my enjoyment. Also, how lit is that cover?!!đŸ”„

My Rating: 4.5/5

‘Wake Up, Girl!’ is available in Paperback and E-book.

A Swoony Mysogynist Romance Tutoring Rape Culture|Review of Good Luck Charm by Helena Hunting


Good Luck Charm by Helena Hunting, features a hot steamy second chance romance with an eye candy of a book boyfriend.

I finished reading this a few days back and have been confused since, on how I felt about the novel and how I wanted to rate and review it. I did not like the two main characters and the narrative have been problematic a couple of times. But they were so major that I could not get over or overlook them. The more I think about it, the more angry I get.


Lilah was really nagging in the second half of the story. The major complication put in the plot was that she could not get enough sleep Continue reading “A Swoony Mysogynist Romance Tutoring Rape Culture|Review of Good Luck Charm by Helena Hunting”
