From Twinkle,with Love
Source:*E-ARC from Netgalley
An aspiring teen filmmaker finds her voice and falls in love in this delightful romantic comedy from the New York Times bestselling author of When Dimple Met Rishi.
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?
Told through the letters Twinkle writes to her favorite female filmmakers, From Twinkle, with Love navigates big truths about friendship, family, and the unexpected places love can find you
*Thank you to Netgalley & Hodder & Stoughton for the review copy. All opinions are my own.
I was very excited to read this book as I read the authors first book, when Dimple met Rishi.
This story follows twinkle,,who loves to direct movies and is ‘low’ on the social scale. She gets an opportunity to direct a movie for an event,with Sahil,while wanting to date his brother,Neil. As you can tell from the description,this make a love triangle,but to make matters worse,she also starts getting emails from a secret admirer.It’s told as Twinkle writing to her favourite female directors and her relating her linking her day to life to something they did in a movie or the like. I really liked this and it was interesting how she compared the two. I liked the references to Supernatural!
I enjoyed the story a lot but i didn’t like the love triangle or pentagon should I say, she has many love interests. I also didn’t like the fact Twinkle was so obsessed with climbing the social scale. She didn’t care about much else but how she would look socially. Climbing up the social ladder would also get her best friends back,or so she believed. She focuses on nothing else than this. I liked her for the first half of the book but it went downhill from a certain point onward.
I liked Sahil, I found him to be very relatable and a likeable character. He’s a geek and I love him for it. He’s obviously likes Twinkle and she remains oblivious to it.
Overall, the story was a good and it had an interesting story line but Twinkle’s attitude and behaviour made me not like it as much as I wanted to.
