37713493
Sparkling and zesty with a dash of green, a Virgin Mojito is a unique blend up and Ira is one lucky girl to have found her Mojito – tall and handsome with green eyes, he is in every definition the intoxication for her. In a twist of tales, the traditional concept of the boy wooing the girl goes for a toss. Smitten at first sight, she boldly pursues her love interest, every bit candid and upfront about it. 

But what is a concoction if not for a heady mix of elements? Her descriptive personal diary falls in the hands of her mother who, on the verge of a cardiac arrest, forbids her from getting into a relationship with the guy she has fallen for.  Will Ira stand up for the love that she has found?Or will she be the ideal daughter and keep the promise for her mother’s sake? 


Will hers be a love story that finds it difficult to have a sweet ending or will it be the perfect fairytale to be remembered down the years?
Will Ira Oberoi’s Pursuit of Love be successful?

Oh, this one was full of cuteness. CUTENESS OVERLOADED!

So, crazy and sassy girls? Calm and sophisticated guys? Love at first sight? What's not there to love?

I mean ok, I sort of don't believe in love at first sight but on second thought I sort of believe in it too. I know I'm not making any sense but guys, cut me some slack. I am a girl and I love romance so yes, I love all the lovey-dovey stuff and happily ever afters!

Coming to the plot, the story revolves around Ira Oberoi, a fun loving, full of life, happy go lucky type of girl. Believe me when I say she is crazy and I loved her craziness because I see myself in her **I am crazy, truth be told, or why would I read so many romance books even when I know that my prince charming doesn't even exist! Aaaaaah! Those depressing moments. Ok so let's move on**.

So Ira is what you call a fun loving person and she falls for Dr green eyes aka Raghav, the definition of cool and calm, immediately upon setting her eyes at him. So yeah, it's love at first sight!! She develops a huge crush on Raghav and then begins her attempts to woo him.

Yes, guys, this is the story in which our kickass heroine woos our calm hero and they fall in love and then Ira's mom discovers about their relationship and, believe me, this is every Indian girl's nightmare. So what happens now? Will they get their happily ever after amidst all the Indian family drama?

The story was really cute and well written and the most important thing? It was damn relatable. There were certain moments when I was like, 'oooh! This happened to me once' and other times I was like, 'you go, girl!! Don't give Dr green eyes up, fight for him'. Yes, I was exactly like this, cheering her up. The overall romance was good and the mom drama was relatable too! So yeah, I quite liked it.


The best part of the book was Ira's attempt to woo Rahul. There aren't many girls who go after someone they love, rather they just want their crush to come to them. So I really liked that she owned her feelings and just went after Raghav.


I felt that something was lacking form Raghav's side. I can't really put a finger on it but something was definitely lacking maybe his POV or something but something was missing. And also there were some cringy cliche romance lines that sort of sucked out the originality from the book but, all in all, it was a good and fun read!

For all the romance lovers and kickass heroine lovers and crazy romantics out there!!

Five Things 'FIVE FEET APART' Taught Us

'Five Feet Apart' is an American Romantic Drama,  inspired by a real-life couple Dalton and Katie Prager, who both suffered from  cystic fibrosis . As you all know that I'm not a movie person, I'd choose books anytime over movies but as I am going through 'Reader's Slump' so I decided to watch Netflix and guess what? I found this treasure. This movie impacted me greatly so I decided to share all my takings with you all. Let's start! 1. Live Big because life don't give us enough chances. 2. Take risks , you never know which moment is your last.  3. Love! Don't be scared of it. Loving won't kill you but not doing it will surely kill a part of you. 4. Take chances! We can die today, we can die tomorrow but we can also make our life worth living. 5. Breathe! Take a deep breath and enjoy your today. We are all on borrowed time. Instead of focusing on making your tomorrow good, make your today even better.

REVIEW: Broken Knight by L.J. Shen

Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending. Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower. Sweet. Caring. Charitable. Quiet. Fake. Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language. Who taught her how to laugh. To live. To love. Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero. Gorgeous. Athletic. Rugged. Popular. Liar. This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna. But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore. When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes. Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy TITLE- Broken Knight AUTHOR- L.J. Shen FORMAT- E

Born into one of the leading Mob families in Chicago, Aria Scuderi struggles to find her own path in a world where no choices are given. Aria was only fifteen when her parents betrothed her to Luca – The Vice – Vitiello, the oldest son of the head of the New York Cosa Nostra to ensure peace between the two families.  Now with eighteen, the day Aria has been dreading for years is looming dangerously: her wedding to Luca.  Aria is terrified of marrying a man she hardly knows, especially someone like Luca who got his nickname ‘the Vice’ for crushing a man’s throat with his bare hands. Luca might be one of the most sought after men in New York thanks to his good looks, wealth and predator-like charisma that radiates power ,  but the society girls throwing themselves at him don’t know what Aria does: that the bad boy aura isn’t just a game; blood and death lurk beneath Luca’s striking gray eyes and arrogant smile. In her world a handsome exterior often hides the monster withi

REVIEW | PRICE OF A KISS (Forbidden Men #1) BY LINDA KAGE

I don’t care what my cousin says;  I am not the queen of impossible relationships. I mean, just because my last boyfriend tried to kill me and left a bit of a scar on my neck, then forced me to move across the country and legally change my name to Reese Randall to escape him, does not mean— Oh, who am I kidding? For a freshman in college, I have to have the worst dating track record ever. It’s no wonder love is the last thing on my mind when Mason Lowe enters my life. But the chemistry between us is like bam! Our connection defies logic. And he’s just so freaking hot. Being around him makes me feel more alive than I’ve ever felt before.
