**Thanks to the author and publisher for sending me the physical review copy**

Just The Way You are can be best described as a charming, beautiful, witty yet a heart-wrenching tale of love.

First of all, I wholeheartedly admit that I was drawn to this novel by its cover and not its blurb. The cover is so cute and charming that you really can't stop yourself from reading this book.

Just the way you are is my first novel from author "Sanjeev Ranjan" and it wasn't a bad read it at all, infact I really enjoyed it. While the book may not be very heart touching or amazing but it contains a very important message that is to 'Just Be Yourself' which is the most important thing in today's world.

The story revolves around Sameer who is supposed to leave for his dream job just after 24 hours of his wedding. Can you imagine? Sameer has finally found the love of his life that is Shagun and now is supposed to leave her on the first day of their wedding for his dream job. Tough choice, Man!

But Shagun being the understanding and loving life supports him and tells him to follow his dreams. But while packing Sameer's belongings, she finds his diary which she keeps to herself and now is from where the actual story starts.


It's all about a diary!!

The diary really helps the readers to understand Sameer's character. As per the diary, Sameer is depicted as a really hardworking guy who gets influenced easily but has best intentions at heart . Like everyone else, Sameer wanted love and after facing so many disappoints and love failures he meets Shagun with whom he finally falls in love. 

So all in all, this is Sameer's story of finding love at the most unexpected time and accepting himself just the way he is.

While the story was really sweet and cute yet that wow factor or uniqueness was missing. I wanted to read more about Sameer's and Shagun's relationship, their first meeting and their courtship but it was missing. I loved how mature Sameer had become in so little time. He was like a complete different person in the diary and then in the real life.


Apart from all the imperfections, it was still a quick and enjoyable read. For everyone who likes a quick and romantic read, this book is perfect for you.

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl
He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly.

Cara
She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her.
She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra.
And now she was at his mercy.

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY HONOR BY CORA REILLY

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 within; a monster who ca…

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.


Until next time...Bye!

BOOK REVIEW: CROWN OF LIES (crown of lies duet 1) BY PEPPER WINTERS

Noelle Charlston lives a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security. 
However, two meetings with two men changes her happy existence forever. First, she meets the man who makes her heart sing. Three years later, she meets the man who makes her blood quiver. 
Broken-hearted from a teenage romance, Noelle’s freedom is no longer hers. It belongs to the stranger her father believes is her perfect match. The stranger who pulls his lies over everyone he touches.  Including her. 
Seduced and manipulated, Noelle gives into the mysterious Penn Everett. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he weaves—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she is and turn her into something else. 
Until her past collides with her present.  And it’s her turn to lie. 
To everyone…including herself.
