    Filmmaking, girl-power, culture, and age-appropriate romance all wrapped up into one very YA novel. Lessons about confronting situations and learning who you (and others) are make this a worthwhile read for the YA crowd. My favorite quote: ?When people show you who they are, you...

    4.5/5 *sniff* This book made my desi heart so so happy. Twinkle is such a lovely and inherently flawed young girl who makes mistakes throughout the book, but also grew and learned from them. I loved watching her blossom, and even when she made me mad and sad, I was rooting for her...

    I don?t think I loved it quite as much as Dimple but it was still an adorable YA read I would recommend! I love also how Twinkle aspires to be a filmmaker, how awesome is that? My rating:???1/2 I don?t think I loved it quite as much as Dimple but it was still an adorable...

    This is such an adorable read! I loved Twinkle's struggle with pursuing her passion despite her disconnect with her parents, her isolation from her old best friend and making connections with new friends, and her love for film making. Twinkle and Sahil are cute couple goals tbh. Sh...

    I was full blown obsessed with Dimple, so I was pretty much screaming at the post office when this arc showed up. I loved Twinkle and Sahil. She?s smart and sassy and is working to be vocal. He?s sweet and adorable and working to be visible. They?re both feeling a bit neglect...

    My heart is an emotional mess. So many feelings. I loved everything about this book. It made me feel all kinds of emotions. Happinedd, sadness, laughter, anger, nervousness, and God knows what else. Seriously, it was all amazing. The plot, characters, and the format was another thi...

    Another cute story from the author of When Dimple Met Rishi! And also self five @ me for reading my eARC on time instead of 7 years late, I'm so proud. Anyway full review to come, but for now: ? this one reads a lot younger than Dimple's book so I preferred Dimple tbh ? I don't ...

    dnf at page 214 this is SO not what i was expecting from the author of When Dimple Met Rishi!!! i liked that one because it was smart and mature (if a LITTLE bit corny at times), and i like the premise for From Twinkle with Love way more so i was sure i was going to love it, but it ...

    I had very high hopes going into From Twinkle, With Love by Sandhya Menon, since When Dimple Met Rishi is one of my favourite reads. It is safe to say that I was not disappointed, and I really enjoyed this story all about filmmaking. Twinkle is awkward and relatable, and the letters ma...

    Twinkle, twinkle little star? Speaking of stars, Twinkle does not wish to become an actress or a singer. Instead, she wants to grow into a successful and recognized Indian-American female filmmaker who shakes the world with her powerful ideas. She dreams big, and I love that a...

    DNF @ 51% There are some extremely important benefits to this book. It features an Indian protagonist who is incredibly feminist and her views on the world and the patriarchy are so refreshing, and sweet, and really lovely. I loved the passion she felt for her filmmaking and the fa...

    Sandhya has this habit of setting up things in the book that worry me and then taking them to fantastic places and fleshing them out so well. It's not perfect, but it took my breath away and has left me feeling several things. Full review to come TW: Aromisic language, ableist la...

    Thanks to NetGalley for an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. Well, From Twinkle, with Love was a breath of fresh air as it was wedged between a number of non-fiction reads and psychological thrillers. As a high school teacher, I probably love these teen novels with the same r...

    4.5 ?Adooorrrbbsss Part 2? Stars I think I loved this book even more than the first, if that's possible. Well, it is possible, because unlike with When Dimple Met Rishi I have no major complaints about this story at all!!!! It was adorable and the character development was p...

    From Twinkle, With Love was utterly adorable and a delight to read. It was filled with uplifting, funny, inspiring, strong, well rounded, imperfect characters and relationships. It was incredibly easy to read and my heart feels a little lighter after doing so. It made me smile, stress ...

    4.5 Stars ?There are two types of people: those who kiss and tell and those who kiss and run. I would like to be the former, but sadly, due to my kissing partner, I have been forced to become the latter.? So, I kinda hope Sandhya Menon comes out with a new hilarious contempor...

    Dear Twinkle Mehra of the future, Hold on to this moment. You?ll want to remember how you feel. You?ll want to remember every tiny detail. This was such a pure book to read. I think that?s what I?ll remember the most about it: how happy it made me feel. It?s a book that ...

    3.75 This book was fun to read, and so swoonworthy, but at the same time I found it frustrating and annoying at times too, just due to how some of the characters acted and the direction the plot went at times It was nice to see Twinkle grow over the book and realise she doesn't ...

    DNF at 58% This was a surprise at first then turned out to be a chore which explains the DNF. I love the idea of having an Indian American YA heroine to read for once and a budding director as well, this was a first time for me. Twinkle Mehra is a 16-year-old "groundling", as what ...

    I loved this wonderful YA novel. It is written in letters to various female film makers and follows Twinkle as she makes her first film. Twinkle views herself as a ?groundling? and wants to be apart of the popular, ?silk feathered hat,? group. As she makes her movie, she mak...
