    Is this book super over the top and cheesy and predictable? Yes. Was this book a bright spot during my otherwise tough week? Also yes. Watch my brief discussion in my June wrap up: https://youtu.be/z-mkTQwXlQE?t=7m37s ...

    A cute, sometimes over-the-top, read about a girl following the prophecy given to her by the family psychic. She believes a boy whose name begins with an R and who gives her a silver bracelet is meant to be her love. And with Raj, it felt right....until she found out he was seeing anot...

    As a brown girl, I can't tell you just how much it pleases me to read books about brown girls falling in love and being all happy. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon last year made me realize just how much I want stories about brown girls and their love stories. When I found out ...

    May 8th, 2018 - Updated Review I had to restrain myself from bursting into giggles every ten seconds. This book is hilarious throughout, with lots of cheese and OTT melodrama like a typical KJo movie and I loved every single word. Winnie is a hard-core movie buff with a Hindi mov...

    I think the characters and idea of the book are super charming and fun! I personally struggled with some of the basic points: ?cheating? while on a break and a prophecy. The first feels very flimsy, and put in for added drama. The second just reads as cheesy outside a fantasy s...

    Contemporary books with mixed-race MCs tend to be a hit-or-miss for me, so I was scared that my anticipation (and I mean extreme anticipation) for this book might go to waste--I mean, pretty much everyone has been loving this book, but I'm often one of the black sheep. BUT!!! My So-...

    This was the exact sort of fluff I was looking for. I really liked Winnie. I loved how devoted to her family she was, how passionate she was about film, and how she went back and forth between wanting to follow the prophecy. Her BFF Bridget was adorable and I loved everything about...

    This is a very cute YA romance with a unique premise. I definitely think that if I had ANY knowledge whatsoever of Bollywood films I would have appreciated this so much more ~ and that is 100% MY fault, not the book's! ...

    ?As much as I love Bollywood damsels in distress, I don?t need saving. I?m my own hero.? Right now, there?s nothing else I want more than to watch a Bollywood movie and become as obsessed with them as Winnie Mehta is. Personally, I'm sceptical of prophecies, and the ast...

    My So-Called Bollywood Life was an adorable contemporary romance that filled my heart with so much joy. This charming romance story was full of humor, swoons, drama, and strong relationships. Winnie, the main character, was a precious and lovable girl. I adored and related to her l...

    As much as I love Bollywood damsels in distress, I don't need saving. I'm my own hero." I loved the characters in this book! With the minor exception of the first like two or chapters where I had a problem with Winnie, but more on that later. After that though, Winnie did gro...

    I?m so bummed that I didn?t like this much. I adored the Bollywood references, the Shah Rukh Khan dream sequences, and the unapologetic use of Hindi in the dialogue. I loved the familial relationships, and Winnie Mehta?s voice was so snarky and distinct! But... it fell flat fo...

    This book made me so happy!!! ????? DISCLAIMER: The closest I have come to watching a Bollywood film was Bride & Prejudice, which is a Bollywood style adaptation of Pride & Prejudice (and quite wonderful, if I do say so myself). However, I do not believe one must b...

    Yes, I know I'm rating my own book, but since I put blood, sweat and tears into every word, I think I should be able to give it 5 stars. (admittedly, I'm biased) Important Stuff For a limited time (while supplies last!) for readers who purchase copies of my book from: Hoora...
