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? Dream 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? 


So many feelings.

I fell in love with SANDHYA MENTON writing when I read WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI last year, and I couldn’t wait to read her next book. Once I found out that she is coming out with a new book, I was excited and put book on hold at library. I did had to wait for while because the book had few holds ahead of me. I had a strong feeling that I would love this book, considering how much I loved her first book. FROM TWINKLE, WITH LOVE Wasn’t any different, I was in love with the story and the characters only few pages into the book. While reading, I went through a lot of emotions: anger, happiness, sadness, laughter. I went through most of emotions that the characters went through. FROM TWINKLE, WITH LOVE was so real, at least to me it felt realistic. Everything that Twinkle and others like Maddie and even Hannah were dealing with, that’s something that I can actually see happening, which I am sure happens to teenagers around everywhere. It feels as if it’s a story that a lot could relate to. I couldn’t get enough of it.

FROM TWINKLE, WITH LOVE was different then the first book, and in a good way. For as long as I remember, I loved books that dealt with letters of some sort. If it’s love letters, friendship or something else. I enjoyed that this was told through letters that Twinkle wrote to her favorite female filmmakers, I think that it made it more personal that way. I loved the last letter the best of all. From beginning of the book, to the end, Twinkle changed quite bit and how much work she put into the movie, of course from help of her friends and Sahil. You cannot forget Sahil, if it wasn’t for him offering, I don’t think she would even think about it. It’s an opportunity that put her out there, as a director. There was part of me that wished that movie existed, because after reading about it, I wanted to see it myself. I was proud of Twinkle, of Sahil and all her friends who worked so hard, to get the movie it became. Despite the drama that went on behind the scenes, during the filming of the movie. All of them stuck together until the end. I was proud of every single one of them.

Sahil. I loved him from beginning. I could see from start how much he liked her. I know that it was one of main reasons that he offered to make movie with her. Besides wanting for her to succeed and be happy. I know that he also wanted to impress her. I felt bad for him, fact that almost everyone seemed to compare him to his brother, Neil even if the two of them were twins. I can’t even begin to imagine being in someone’s shadow this way. Sahil, he was everything you wanted in a guy, sweet, caring, can make you laugh. I was waiting to see when Twinkle would realize it and realize that Sahil is the guy she wants to be with, not Neil. I wanted for her to see it before anyone got hurt. I was hoping that he wouldn’t find out about Neil, that it was Neil that she wanted to be with, at least from start. It sucks that he found just as she figured out that it was Sahil that she wanted to be with, that it was him that she had feelings. My heart broke for both. I did hope that Sahil would find it in his heart to at least give Twinkle another chance. I was rooting for the two of them.

Maddie, I wasn’t sure how to feel about her. One minute she was acting friendly with Twinkle, next she pretended as if she didn’t exist or get angry at her for simplest things. I didn’t like how she treated her when she was around her friends. I didn’t like the way that she let Hannah boss her around either. I did wonder if Veronica was right, that Hannah was jealous. However, that’s not an excuse to treat someone the way that Maddie treated Twinkle. That’s not how friends treated each other. I hoped that working on the movie together, would help them fix their friendship. I had a feeling that there is part of Maddie that missed it, missed the friendship that they used to have. Something I knew that she wouldn’t admit in front of Hannah. I was in shock when Hannah apologized to Twinkle for how she treated her. At least it’s a start. Plus, maybe it give Maddie and Twinkle fix the things between the two of them. I had feeling that they would get there, where they used to be. I wondered if this time around they would be able to remain friends and if Twinkle and Hannah would become friends. FROM TWINKLE, WITH LOVE is a type of story that makes you wonder what happens after.

Memorable story.

This is a love story.

It's the story of Howling Books, where readers write letters to strangers, to lovers, to poets.
It's the story of Henry Jones and Rachel Sweetie. They were best friends once, before Rachel moved to the sea.

Now, she's back, working at the bookstore, grieving for her brother Cal and looking for the future in the books people love, and the words they leave behind. 


What a wonderful idea for a book. A book that deals with book, friendship and love. What is there to not love? I fell in love with this book within couple minutes of reading it. Such beautifully written book.

Have you ever read a book that you kept thinking about, that you couldn’t forget? WORDS IN DEEP BLUE Besides isn’t title catching? How can a title like that not catch your attention and have you curious. I have never read a book by CATH CROWLEY before. I happen to be at library when I came across this book and the title was first what captured my attention, followed by the cover. I was curious about the title so I picked up the book, and once I read the summary, I was hooked. I had a strong feeling that I was going to love this book, and I did. From beginning to the end. It was sad, and there was quite few dramatic moments and that’s what I loved about it. Just when I thought that I reached a stopping point, something else would happen and pull me back into story. Reading from Henry and Rachel’s point of view, helped you as reader to understand the character more. To me, it felt as they became real, they became my friends by how much I learned about them through their thoughts and their feelings. I don’t think I be able to put this book down even if I wanted to. I think the only reason I did was due to work.

Even I knew that Henry and Rachel should be together. Just like Rachel, I wondered what happened to that letter that she wrote to Henry. I wondered if he read it. I know that he didn’t when he talked her, and told her why she didn’t say goodbye. I knew that he couldn’t have read the letter. Which of course made me wonder what happened to it, if it was still in the book that she left it in. When she found it missing, I wondered where it was and who read it. I wasn’t that surprised that it was Amy. I didn’t like her. I didn’t like how she would break his heart and then run back to him. I was waiting for him to see, that Amy wasn’t the one that he should be, that she wasn’t one that he loved, not way that he thought. That it was Rachel. I wanted to talk some sense into him and make him see that Rachel was the one for him. I just wished that he seen it sooner. I did love the letters that the two of them started to exchange, and I knew how much Rachel still cared about him, considering that he was the first person that she told about what happened to Cal. She might have thought that she didn’t love him anymore, but that’s not a feeling that just goes away.

I loved the idea of Letter Library, I would love it if somewhere out there it existed. A place where you can writer letters, notes, inside book, your favorite book. I loved reading the letters that people written to each other. I, especially loved the letters that George and Cal exchanged through the years, even if she didn’t know it was him at first. They fell in love by exchanging letters in Letter Library for three years. I thought that it was romantic. My heart broke for George. She never get to see him, to meet him. I can’t imagine how it is to meet someone, and then never having chance to meet them, to tell them you love them. It’s heart breaking. My hearts broke for both George and Rachel. I could tell how hard it was for Rachel, even thought she left to get away from it, and to try and forget. But how can you forget something like that? I was glad that Henry was there for her. I was also glad that at least George had Martin to rely on, to help her though this.

A tragic, yet a beautiful, breathtaking story about Love, Friendship, Grief. You will through emotions reading this book. Reading WORDS IN DEEP BLUE will make you want pick up another book afterwards and read, read. At least that the feeling I got after reading it. A book that will stay with you.

I should have died when I was shot at the Halloween dance.

Instead I woke up—one week earlier, in a parallel universe where my mom's fatal car accident six months ago never happened.

A world with my mom still in it was all I ever wanted. But in this timeline, everything is different—my grades, my friends, and even my boyfriend. I'm a stranger in my own body, and I don’t like who I’ve become.

But one thing is the same—that shooting will still happen at the end of the week.

I'm the only one who knows. Which means I'm the only one who can stop it.

But first I need to convince someone—anyone—that I’m telling the truth... and then get them to help me


That ending, it can’t really be the ending, can it? It has me craving for more. I knew that she was conflicted between going back and staying at first. At same time, I was sure that she decides to go back, to her family, friends. This wasn’t the ending that I saw coming. I feel that there has be more after an ending like that. I do kind of understand why she choose to stay, so she could be with her mother, she was afraid of losing her again. But what about rest of her family, her friends? I can’t even begin to imagine what they must be going through at that moment. There is part of me that wonders, that she would change her mind. I finished COLLIDE not that long ago, but I can’t seem to get out of my mind. I want to know what happens after, I kept on wondering about it. I couldn’t get enough of this story, every page was filled with suspense that kept you wondering what will happen next. How will it end?

I read few books about time travel before, It’s one of my favorite stories to read about. I feel that it filled with a lot of suspense and there is always something happening. COLLIDE wasn’t any different, it hooked from the start and I found myself unable to stop turning the pages. I enjoyed that it was different from the other books that I have read. Like Anna I was confused how it happened, how she ended up in parallel universe and like her, it made me wonder what happened to her at the shooting, was she shot? Was she killed? And if she was, how did she end up alive in this one? I did wonder if the reason that she ended in this one was to stop the shooting or at least found out who started shooting so the person can be stopped. COLLIDE had me on the edge of my seat from start until the end of the book, and even them I was still on edge of the seat, especially after an ending like that. How could I not be?

Zac and Jake I was conflicted between these too, I liked them both. I know, even with Jake not being completely honest with Anna. I was between, She loves him and Zac is right here . I know that both of them loved Anna in their own way. I think I would been happy either way. I would been happy if she ended up with Jake and happy if it was Zac that she choose. Of course I couldn’t help but wonder who she would end up choosing. I don’t think I would be able to choose if I was asked which was my favorite one. I did feel bad for Zac, he loved her. I can’t even imagine loving someone but them not having memory of relationship. I could tell how much he loved her. The way that he was around her and the way that he helped her. Now that Anna decided to stay, what about Zac? Would that affect both sides? The story, the characters wasn’t all that I loved about this book, the cover was gorgeous. Plus, it fit the storyline so well. Just the cover itself would attract anyone’s attention.

I have been reading MICHELLE MADOW books since Remembrance and more I read, more in love I fall in love with her stories. Through the years, not only has she become one of my favorites, but also a friend. I’m so proud of her. I know that she is going be one of those authors who will be talked for years to come. Another beautifully written story.

What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them… all at once?

Sixteen-year-old Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she’s written. One for every boy she’s ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control.

It's at times like these where I wish I had 2nd book in the series. However, it seems as almost everyone wants read the book since movie came out. The ending, I’m still thinking about it and wondering what she write to him. Of course it had to end there. I heard about TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE for a while, even before the movie came out. It has been on mine to read list. Once the movie came out on Netflix, seemed that it was all people were talking about. I got curious about it, and I decided by reading the book first and seeing the movie after. I did not see movie yet, but I loved the book. You can’t help but love TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE. . I couldn’t stop turning the pages, JENNY HAN created a beautiful story about friendship, family and love. You will stay on edge of your seat until the end, and afterwards you be wondering if that’s how she ended the book. Of course she had leave you with a cliffhanger.

Lara Jean was lovely and one of my favorite characters in the book. I don’t think I be able to pick one favorite, I loved so many, Lara Jean, Margot, Kitty, Peter, Josh. You can see that picking favorite will be impossible. With Lara Jean, you couldn’t help but connect with her. I can’t even imagine what I would do if love letters that were supposed be a secret got sent out. I would most likely even avoid school. I think that she handled it better than I would have. All through the book I kept wondering, Who could sent those letters and why? I was in shock when it was relieved who it was, the last suspected person. Even I did not see that coming. I did enjoy reading the letters that she send to the guys that she liked. I could tell that she was a bit conflicted about Josh at first, even try to deny her feelings that seemed to surface back. I wonder what could have happened if she didn’t deny them.

I liked Peter from the start, I loved his sense of humor. I thought it was interesting how he agreed to be her fake boyfriend. I wondered if he liked her, maybe that’s why he agreed her. Not long into book you could see the connection between two of them. I could tell that Peter liked her long before he told her. Lara Jean was showing the symptoms of it before too. The way that she kept defending him when someone said that he wasn’t good for her, that she would end up getting hurt. The way that she acted when she was around him. Lara Jean seemed happy when she was with him. Josh, I know he cared about her but at same time, it happened because of letter. I am a bit curious how deep his feelings for Lara Jean. Considering how he felt about Margot not that long ago. I felt like he moved on from her, a bit too fast. I feel like there is more romantic connection between Lara Jean and Peter, then there is between Lara Jean and Josh. I am rooting for her and Peter.

I loved the relationship between the siblings, not all siblings are close like they are. It made me smile. I loved how Peter was with Kitty, that was one of the things that made me adore him, and I’m sure that’s why she liked him. Now that I have read the book, I can’t wait to see how the movie turned out. I also can’t wait to see what’s in store next for Lara Jean, Peter, Josh, Kitty, Margot next.

It's been nine years since Larkin fled Georgetown, South Carolina, vowing never to go back. But when she finds out that her mother has disappeared, she knows she has no choice but to return to the place that she both loves and dreads--and to the family and friends who never stopped wishing for her to come home. Ivy, Larkin's mother, is discovered in the burned-out wreckage of her family's ancestral rice plantation, badly injured and unconscious.

No one knows why Ivy was there, but as Larkin digs for answers, she uncovers secrets kept for nearly 50 years. Secrets that lead back to the past, to the friendship between three girls on the brink of womanhood who swore that they would be friends forever, but who found that vow tested in heartbreaking ways. 


Family. Friendship. Love. Secrets. Mystery.

Those is everything that I love reading about. DREAMS OF FALLING was a powerful, inspiring story. I didn’t want to end, a book that I am still thinking about. I knew there were reason that KAREN WHITE is one of my favorite authors and has been for years. I don’t think there has been a single book of hers that I didn’t love. Her books, her writing is remarkable. Her stories and the emotions of each character makes me feel as I am actually there and I can picture and feel the emotions that the characters are feeling. I been reading KAREN WHITE ‘s books for over 6 years now, and I was so excited to read this one. I couldn’t wait to dig into this story. I wasn’t disappointed. I fell in love, with the story and the characters. I think if I was asked to pick a favorite character, I wouldn’t be able to pick one, well expect for Jackson, wasn’t fond of him. I loved hearing the story from Ivy, Larkin & Ceecee’s point of view, which made me feel more connected to each character. I was hoping that Ivy would recover and wake up, but after a while I had low hopes for her making a recovery and I think even Larkin figured that out after a while. My heart broke for everyone. Even if you know that it’s someone’s time to go, never easy to say goodbye.

I know that it was hard for Larkin to come back. Knowing her, she wouldn’t came back if it wasn’t for her mother’s disappearance. I did wonder that maybe she would change her mind at some point and end up staying. I know she kept on saying she leave as soon as her mother woke up and she talked to her. I believe that after time she realized that this was her home, her family. I was also waiting for her to figure out that Bennet was the one for her, and that Jackson wasn’t even worth her energy. I know that why he called her, and why he seemed to be around her and reason he pulled that stunt on Jackson’s boat. I wanted for Larkin to see Jackson for who he was before she got hurt again. I know that he’s one of reasons that she left those years ago. I’m glad that she finally found out Jackson for who she was, I just wish that she didn’t find out way she did. Some people never change and Jackson is one of those people. I loved how Bennet wouldn’t give up and always seemed to be there. I don’t know how she didn’t figure out how he felt about her earlier. I am happy when she finally did. I rooted for them to get together right from the start. Larkin needs someone like him. I know that with him she is going be very happy. I do wonder what happened with them after the book ended.

I loved that Ceecee’s point of view would go back to the past, in 50’s. I enjoyed reading about Ceecee’s, Margaret and Bitty friendship. What they had, that was friendship. A true, longlasting friendship. The things that they sacrificed for each other. I did wonder what happened to Margaret, how she actually died and if it was an accident. I was curious and suspicious like Larkin has been. I noticed the change in Margaret after her parents died and even more once Reggie was killed. I can’t imagine losing so many people and then still have raise a daughter. I know that Margaret loved Ivy in her own way, she just couldn’t seem to get past the grief of losing Reggie. I also thought it was such unique idea to write down their dreams and wishes and put it into the oak tree. I wondered about the title when I found out that her new book coming out. Now that I read the book, it makes perfect sense. A beautiful title for this breathtaking novel. KAREN WHITE did it again.

It was magical, thrilling from start to end.

Dana Fields's father never knew his parents. When Dana secretly does a DNA test for her dad, hoping to find him some distant relatives for his birthday, her entire world implodes. Instead of a few third cousins, Dana discovers a half brother her age whose very existence means her parents' happy marriage is a lie.

Dana's desire to know her half brother, Brandon, and the extent of her dad's deception, clashes with her wish not to destroy her family. When she sees the opportunity to get to know Brandon through his cousin, the intense yet kind Chase, she takes it. But the more she finds out about Brandon, her father's past and the irresistible guy who'll never forgive her if he discovers the truth, the more she sees the inevitable fallout from her own lies. With her family crumbling around her, Dana must own up to her actions and find a way to heal the breach—for everyone—before they're torn apart for good.


A heartbreaking, yet a beautiful story.

I had no idea how heartbreaking this book would be. I knew that it would be emotional when I read the summary, but did not realize how much. My emotions are everywhere. I felt as it was my heart that got broken while I read this book. I can’t even begin to imagine finding out something like that. If it were me, I don’t think I would be able to hold a secret for as long as I had. I would demand answers. I do understand why Dana did, at first she was in denial at first. She went from thinking that she found her grandfather, to finding out that she had a half brother, that wasn’t that much older that her. I can’t even begin imagine coming across information like that. Like her sister, Selena I knew that nothing good could come out from this DNA testing. I know that she wanted to find her father’s family, but what she found is that her father wasn’t who she thought he was. My heart broke from her, for having to deal with it for as long as she had alone. My heart broken even more when Brandon wanted nothing do with her, and when Selena didn’t believe her. Dana’s pain became my pain. I felt all the emotions that she went through. There were times where I wanted to give her hug. Despite how she found out, how hurt she was, she did not give up on trying convince Brandon to try get know her family, their father. Despite how much hurt her caused, she still loved him, and still wanted her father to try get know her son.

Brandon, he was cold towards Dana. What happened, wasn’t her fault. But I think he might blamed her for telling him in first place. If she never contacted him or showed up at his work, he might not know. From what Chase told Dana, it affected Brandon a lot, and not in a good way. I believe that it would affect anyone. Finding out, that your dad is not who you thought he was, how do you get over that? I know that he handled it the best that he could. At least he finally got up and meet his father, for first and last time. I bet that was one of hardest things that he had to do. The relationship between Chase and Dana was cute, and I could see how much he cared about her and there was part of me that hoped he would never find out the truth. I rooted for him, I hoped that he would find it in him to forgive her, or at least start to. I know that he was hurt because he thought that she used him in attempt to get more information on his family. I think maybe she should have been honest from him from the start and it could been avoided. Dana did try get information from Chase, at the same time she helped him with his mom, helped him clean her house. I don’t think that she would done that if she didn’t care about him.

My heart broke for all of Dana’s family once the truth came out. What I didn’t expect was for her mother, to know about affair, yet still stayed with him. I wondered if she stayed because of the kids. It was clear to me, how much she loved him, considering how affectionate she was with him after she found that he had a son. Not right away but soon after. It’s clear how much the two of them loved one another, despite what she gone through. I know it might take Selena and Dana a while to forgive him, if they can forgive him. At same time I know that in the end, that they will be okay. They are strong, they can make through this. I loved the realthionship that Selena and Dana had, what they had is special bond that not every sister shares. My heart broke for Dana and Selena when Selena drifted from Dana for while after the truth came out. I wanted to talk some sense into her. I know that she was hurting as much as Dana, that not talking to her was making her miserable. I was smiling when they finally resolved their issues.

THE FIRST TO KNOW was the first book that I read by ABIGAIL JOHNSON and it won’t be last. How did I not read her books before? I couldn’t stop turning the pages. I wanted to see how it would get resolved, if it get resolved. It took me on such emotional roller coaster that I am still thinking about it. I can’t seem to get the story out of my mind. I keep wondering what happened after the story ended. A heartbreaking story, yet a story that will stay with you.

The last thing Elise wants is to start her senior year in a new town. But after her brother’s death in Afghanistan, she and her mother move from San Francisco to a sleepy coastal village.

When Elise meets Mati, they quickly discover how much they have in common. Mati is new to town too, visiting the U.S. with his family. Over the course of the summer, their relationship begins to blossom, and what starts out as a friendship becomes so much more.

But as Elise and Mati grow closer, her family becomes more and more uncomfortable with their relationship, and their concerns all center on one fact—Mati is Afghan. 


My heart, my emotions. I knew that this book would be emotional. I didn’t not prepare myself enough on how emotional. I cried along with Elise, with Mati, I felt angry of how Elise family treated him. I felt all the emotions that both Mati and Elise felt. I loved KATY UPPERMAN KISSING MAX HOLDEN that’s when two of us met and ended up becoming friends. THE IMPOSSIBILITY OF US was different from her debut novel, but in a good way. A story that deals with very hard subject, a story that you will fall in love with. I knew that it would be a story that I would love only after reading couple pages. I couldn’t, no I didn’t want to stop turning the pages. I was caught up in Mati and Elise’s story, I was curious about them. There was part of me that hoped that two of them would find a way to be together, that Elise family would accept him. I felt horrible, sad for Mati on how he was treated, how others judged him because he was from Afghanistan. Fact that Elise tried to prove to her mother and sister in law how different he was. I understand that both were all basing it on fact that Nick died in Afghanistan, and they only reason they judged him. Of course, that doesn’t make it right. I know that they couldn’t be together because of that.

I saw connection between Mati and Elise from start. I do believe that Mati helped Elise, deal with the sudden move easier. I’m pretty sure that she didn’t plan to fall in love. I did see her have her hesitation when she found he was Afghan. At same time, I know the reason she ran away is because it reminded her of her brother Nick, of his death. I was glad that she decided to go back and to apologize to him. I hated how her family tried to keep them apart, I understood why they did but that didn’t make it right. I feel that Elise’s friendship and relationship with Mati tore the family apart, they seemed to drift a bit apart because of it. That made me sad that it came to that. I wish that they could see that he was different and see how happy it made Elise. To them that didn’t matter, they didn’t even want to give him a chance. I can’t even begin to imagine how Mati must felt. He got jumped because of who he was. If it were me, I would leave so that I didn’t have to deal with it, with all the hate. I loved fact that it didn’t stop Mati and Elise from seeing each other, from being with one another. Despite how their families felt about it. The two of them, they didn’t give up. To me, that’s real love.

I have read few books that were written in free verse. I loved that Mati’s point of view was written in Free Verse. It felt like a poetry, a beautiful poetry. I loved reading from his point of view, it made me understand his thoughts, his feeling much more. Writing from point of view from both Elise and Mati’s point of view worked so well. I think that reading from both of their feelings, it helps you connect with both of characters. I felt as I could feel what they were feeling. THE INPOSSIBILITY OF US I had this strong feeling like I became part of their story. When I reached the end of the story, I felt sad as I was saying goodbye to long time friends. Mati and Elise were my favorite characters but I also loved Ryan and Xavier, they are type of people that I would love to be friends with. The type of friends that I could go to if I needed to. Bambi, don’t you just love that name? I Love Disney movies and that happens be one of my favorites. Of course Janie too, how can you not love her? In general, I loved most of the character’s in book, including Mati’s father. Plus the cover, isn’t it stunning, and the title, it fits the story so well.

A beautiful, heart aching love story. I can’t stop thinking about it. KATY UPPERMAN did it again. I can tell already that she will be an author that everyone will love, will talk about. I’m already excited what she will come up with next. I can’t wait to see what adventures she will lead us on next.
