(All opinions are my own)
Love is in the air!

Namita Sonthalia brings her readers a cute and heartwarming tale of love, perfect for all the romance-buffs out there!

'The heart has its own language, which only the eyes can fathom.'
The book introduces us to Ahaana, a confident and self-made event manager, who runs her own event management company called 'A Threshold Of Love' in partnership with her childhood friend Ansh.

Enters Ronit, a successful business tycoon, who wants Ahaana to plan his wedding. Ahaana and Ronit strike up an easy-going friendship as soon as they meet. But things do not go as per the plan and Ronit's wedding gets called off and both of them lose touch with one another. 

Ahaana, all of a sudden meets a guy named Soham at her cousin's wedding and finds herself being sucked into an arranged marriage with him.

When destiny brings Ronit and Ahaana together once again, they start developing feelings for each other which in turn makes everything much more complicated.

'The heart muddles up things and leads you to a mess.'

Will Ronit and Ahaana find their way back to one another or will they succumb to heartache?

I completely and wholeheartedly adored this book. I am not the one for the love triangles but this was an exception. Page 1, and I was like: oh she writes beautifully.


The story is primarily told in Ahaana's POV, followed by Ronit, and then certain bits are told in multiple POV. The best thing is that the narration is so good that there is absolutely no confusion. Even when the POV changes abruptly, one can keep up with it without getting confused all of a sudden. The story is told at a very smooth pace, certain things were a bit stretched out as per me but it didn't bother me much. 

Ahaana and Ronit were cute together but that chemistry was missing. I just wanted to feel a bit of passion apart from all the cuteness.

I loved Ansh and Mishka's story that was running in the background. Both of them were so cute. 

CHARACTERISATION: I absolutely adored each and every character of this book. All of them are just so well constructed and I felt really connected to them. The characters are really well thought of and there is an aura of positivity surrounding all of them.

COVER & TITLEThe cover is beautifully crafted and the title perfectly compliments the book. I couldn't think of a better title.

Recommended to all the contemporary romance lovers who are looking for an easy-breezy read.
Happy Reading!

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

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
