Read an Excerpt:


   This is it. One wrong move and I find myself
crying to sleep. Days, maybe weeks of putting up the brave face. The ultimate,
cliché teenage drama. Everyone has been through it and everyone has heard of
it. But for me it was the first time. Maybe the last, hopefully.
 
   So, wearing my heart on my sleeves, I fell in ‘love’.
Not once, but twice with the same guy in a row. Tramp? No. I was in love.
Deeply, madly, unconditionally. Until the hand
s
of practicality
punched me
right
on my face. I was left stranded
and confused. Wondering why all
of this was happening to
me.  Another cliché moment. But for me,
it was the first time.

There is something about human nature which seeks for sympathy. Just had
a breakup? The whole world is conspiring for you to be unhappy. No
, I will not smile, the world is a cruel place. It
takes days for people to get over it. For me? Well no surprise to you, it took
a year. One entire year of  ‘the wait’.
Sitting back now and thinking about it, I find it funny. No, I find it
hilarious. So, what happened after the year was over? Did I just miraculously
wake up one day and think to myself that, “hey, you know what…. you are a great
girl, get over it…move on!!” No, I realized that he had thought of this way
back. He had moved on way back. While, the “so-in-love”
me, was waiting. Simply waiting for my stars to turn
and
relive the same love story again. 
  The moment
you see that your ex has a different face beside the “in a relationship”
status, that is the moment you realize how blind and ridiculous you were. The
once cute goatee seems like a bush now, that smile which made you smile makes
you want to knock off all his teeth, his fascination for food makes you notice
his peeking belly pouch. In a nutshell, you are no longer in love with him and
his flaws. So then, life brings you to a fork road. The fun road is where you
sit back and spread wild rumors about how terrible he is and how he broke your
heart. Believe me, the devil will tempt you to follow this path. It is a
fantastic journey, but a few more months of futility. So I chose the better
path. Get up, pull yourself together, shrug off the dust and embrace the new
journey. I am glad I chose the latter. Very glad.

What do you do when an entire part of your life has been erased which
once held so much of importance to you? You try and fill it up with things you
never had time for otherwise. Sociali
ze,
go out, write, sing, laugh, read, stare randomly out of the window and get lost
in your own beautiful world. Life was better. I am an ardent believer in
unconventionality. Why follow the crowd? I won’t make my own crowd! No siree! I
won’t even sit at a distance and laugh at the crowd. I would rather live in a
parallel world, a different dimension maybe. I can see you. But you can’t touch
me. You can’t judge me. I can be me. Shamelessly.
Raise the walls
high. Build the impenetrable walls. Shut the gates. It’s my own perfect world.
A year goes by in my world. Everything is healed.

I decide to open up the windows a little bit. A little fresh air will cause no
harm. I felt a whiff. A new breeze. That felt nice. It felt familiar. Maybe I
can open up my windows just a wee bit more. I will shut them off immediately.
They are wide open now. Even today. I never shut them. I was never able to.


Vulnerable or strong? Please be vulnerable, please be vulnerable………
pleaded my heart. Shut up already. You have created enough chaos. I am in
charge now. No more “
Fairytale dreams”,
no more car rides, no more falling for flattering messages, no more being silly
in love.
Do you have a tiny voice at the back of
your head which speaks back to you and gives life advice, for god’s sake? Well
mine is louder than my own voice, has a humongous ego
and can be downright obnoxious sometimes. It’s difficult living with it
seriously. You know the worst part? It is usually right.

 

 

‘ I love you’. Nope, no you don’t. I could die for you.
No you can’t. ‘I have waited my whole life for you’. Were you born yesterday?
‘I just want to be with you’. Yeah, you want to be in my pants. The voice is
annoying I tell you, but it is always right. If I was anything like the voice
then I doubt whether I would have had any friends.

BOOK REVIEW OF Simply Irresistible by P.G.VAN

BLURB : 

Mantra needed to finish her master’s thesis to start her career in psychology. She never thought she would have to work at Yash’s restaurant because she scratched his very expensive sports car. Left with no choice, she tries to make best out of the situation.

Yash is an accomplished and super-hot businessman, but Mantra thinks he is bad news. He is a local celebrity, and she has to work with him while fighting her undeniable attraction to the man. She cannot help but wonder why Yash owns a restaurant when he was a child prodigy in the medical field.

Mantra knew there was more to Yash’s cool exterior, but she doesn’t want to know anything about him—knowing more about him would only make him Simply Irresistible.

BOOK REVIEW OF Simply Irresistible by P.G.VAN

 

Simply Irresistible by P.G.VAN is a brilliant  book  to read especially on weekends because she has sketched her story and characters in a very charismatic way that would make your mind want a bed to curl on  to read her book .

 

The male and female protagonist are easy ,stubborn ,hard and good looking .Reading them made me feel like one amongst  them .Both the characters “Mantra” and “Yash” have tongue and head of their own .

 

Their statements and dialogues are good to enjoy .Its more or less like an ordinary couples story  who tireless argument , have sex and cook for each other .

 

P.G.VAN has used ‘psychology’a subject  and ‘cooking’ an art  (these both  are  close to heart)and she has used very well  in her  book called  “Simply Irresistible”).

 

  “Simply Irresistible” by  P.G.Van is cocktail of all the emotions .Its a perfect romance .

 

Lastly I  loved Samar and Sloka’s character .

 

I do want to read their romances…SO GO WOMAN FOR THAT TOO  PLEASE .

With Lots of KISSES AND HUGS,

Aadarshini,Anika and Laya Krishnan’s Morning Inspirations

by
Sundari Venkatraman
 
 

Book Blurb

A thief comes up with a simple modus operandi, believing that nobody’s really going to find out anything about the thefts taking place. But when a guest brings it to his notice, Rohit is determined to save the reputation of Simha International and ropes in a top-notch detective. Will Rohit be able to find who the thief is before time runs out? The lovely and intelligent Tasha Sawant goes to work at Simha International as the duty manager. Her experience in the hotel industry only adds to the hotel’s excellent service. Tasha is attracted to Rohit and it would seem that he reciprocates her feelings. Well, the lady isn’t looking for a permanent relationship as it looks likes she’s already had an unpleasant experience. But then, what about the guy? Does Rohit want any kind of relationship with Tasha? *Simha International is the first book in the trilogy called The Bansal Legacy.

BOOK REVIEW

Simha International by Sundari Venkatraman is good book to read . Sundari has penned her characters in a very nice fashion . Especially a business man with his perception towards his work life and love life .

I  loved Rohit Bansal character ,he is charming ,friendly and open.. 

Now to save his company reputation  he even forgets Tasha′s love which speaks volumes about his business persona .

 

Where as TASHA character is good to read but where I lost her is when she did   not  like  face her  tyrant brother entry and her family′s rants(is she being cowardice in approach like the timid rabbit 😦 ) .

 

Tasha made me feel like ‘ She was some kind of clingy parasite ’ who did not have any   work in Simha International other than thinking about Rohit Bansal ′s body , helping nature  ,and his exes .

TASHA needs to  be given some kind work  . Despite being duty manger  she fails to impress me , I am helpless that I FOUND  Tasha being  a helpless lady  .

Needlessly to say I did  not  either find Tasha  being a strong willed  persona like the author says .

 

 

 

 

THE PLOT IS SUPERB.

 

OVERALL Simha International by Sundari Venkatraman is one time read book .

BOOK REVIEW : Scorpio Superstar (Written in the Stars Book 1) By Sundari Venkatraman

51jq2r51hwl

Blurb:

Kollywood superstar Chandrakanth, also known as CK, is a true-blue Scorpio, communicating with his eyes and believing in showing more than telling. 

His website and social media consultant Ranjini is a Piscean through and through, fiercely independent.

It is love at first glance for Chandrakanth when he meets Ranjini; so strong are his feelings that he proposes marriage on their second meeting. Ranjini, fascinated by his starry persona, gets swept off her feet. The two get married without much of the world knowing—including CK’s aunt and his ex. 

The two women set out to settle their scores on Ranjini who suddenly begins to feel a strain in what was a fairy tale wedding.

While passion reigns on the one hand, there’s trouble in paradise on the other. Although CK is by her side, the Scorpio in him expects her to trust him implicitly. But can the Pisces in Ranjini accept him at his word?

Does the tension then get to their relationship? Can love survive without affirmations? Or is declaration the only way to profess one’s love?

 

BOOK REVIEW :

*I am not a movie buff so do not know about concentric details about  it ,But… I  do watch Gujarati Plays and Short Urban Family Movies with a keen interest in it  so might be my review will  be biased   or  not up to one′s expectation .

Scorpio Superstar (Written in the Stars Book 1) by Sundari Venkatraman is a good read book .

She has penned her characters Chandrakanth and Ranjini  very well .

I do not know anything about  pros and cons  of a superstars life so I would not comment on character sketch of  Chandrakanth …

On the other hand Sundari  has sketched Ranjini ′s in a supremely  blissful way  . A Pisces person is very difficult nut to crack  for any one  for that matter  as they cannot accept things so dam easily you all might be know about them  me saying with a wink   .

Otherwise the book is perfect mixture of drama, emotions and helplessness .

I do not like the stingy attitudes of aunts and other relatives . But if they are not there life  would become tasteless  like water .

So do  read this book for CK the Scorpio Hero …..I  DO  PREFER MEN WITHOUT MUSTACHE ,SUNDARI …….

I THANK THE  AUTHOR FOR GIVING ME HER  BOOK Scorpio Superstar (Written in the Stars Book 1)FOR A  HONEST FEEDBACK. 

 

With Lots of Kisses and Hugs ,

                       BOOK REVIEW : 

Bound by Hatred by M.V.Kasi is excellent book to read .
She has penned Dev Singham very well making me want like hell .
He is perfect mix of hate and love which we do not find these days .

All I see soapy and flattery men who keep their girl friends or wives feet in lotus like pans which irritates me .

On the other hand M.V.Kasi has penned SABITHA PRAJAPATI like a rowdy kind of dragon Queen with kind heart towards her people .
The combination of Dev Singham and SABITHA PRAJAPATI is very good . I love both of them .

Overall it is a good read book.

❤ M.V.KASI
