20661129
“Does love manage to find a way, even when all illusions fade? Where does the journey end?”Akshat Diwan has everything that the tangible world can offer for a dream-like life – luxurious cars, a palatial mansion, extravagant wealth and an heirloom of infinite opulence. All but peace! His parents are forever in a state of prolonged hostility; add to it failing spurious friendships and dwindling love life which metamorphoses him into a soul-less creature. Cursing his misfortune and in an attempt to end his anguish and disparity, Akshat embarks on an unknown journey, seeking nothing but solitude, or perhaps a glimpse of his inner being. It is when he meets a stranger that he realizes his journey is not just any journey, but a roller coaster ride to unravel the harsh realities of life.It’s No Longer A Dream is all about collecting the shattered pieces of meaning of life, love and relationships and bringing them back to a whole again.


**Thanks to the author for a physical review copy in exchange of an honest review**

Okay!! So let's start with my ramblling!

'Its No Longer a Dream' is my second book by author 'Sanjeev Ranjan'. The thing that compelled me to choose this book was it's title. I mean just take a look at the title, it makes you curious about what's actually there in the book. 

Warning-- This book is going to make you cry and you won't be able to put it down!!

The story revolves around Akshat and Naina, the lead pair and also Randhir and Radhika, the supporting pair. The entire story is divided into 3 parts.

Part 1 introduces the readers to Akshat. 
Akshat has everything, let it be wealth, friends, family, a luxurious house, grand cars, a girlfriend names Naina and everything a person wishes for but the strange thing is, that he is still unhappy. He has no peace. Outworldly, he has a perfect life but the reality was far far away from perfect. His family is on the brink of breakdown and his friends only care about his wealth.

What can be worse than being surrounded by people all the time just because you are rich? That's what usually happens with Akshat. Enters Naina, Akshat's girlfriend. Naina loves Akshat but is somehow scared to tell him.

Compelled by his circumstances, he walks away from everything, his family, his friends, his wealth and most importantly Naina. Akshat gets on a train and meets Randhir which marks the beginning of part 2. 

Part 2 introduces the readers to Randhir. Akshat meets Randhir on a train.

Randhir tells him his own love story. Randhir's story acts as subplot in this book. Randhir's and Radhika's story is really beautiful and somehow teaches Akshat the real meaning of love and relationship. This part is a tearjerker.

Part 3 bends towards the epilogue when Akshat returns back home and expresses his love to Naina.

This book is basically an emotional rollercoaster which takes the readers on a beautiful romantic journey. The story is well written and all the scenes and events are beautifully described.

Part 2 actually made me cry and I was like "Can I have a boyfriend too, I need a hug". Don't you even dare laugh, a girl can hope right?

'Its No Longer a Dream' teaches the readers the actual meaning of love. The most important message that I got from this book is that the moments can never be forgotten and things cannot be undone.Life is unpredictable so why wait and be miserable? when we can love and be happy.

The only negative thing about this book was that the first part was a bit stretchy and the details were unnecessary but all in all this was a beautiful but teary read.

'Its no longer a dream' is perfect for hopeless romantic people like me. So kudos to us romance lovers.

So get a box of tissue, some chocolates and a cup of coffee and of course this book and start reading. Do tell me your views about this lovely book.

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: 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.

**Thanks to Hay House for the Review copy** First things first, Deepak Chopra is one of the most efficient non-fiction writers. I've heard great things about his books but as I am not so keen on non-fiction so I haven't read any of them. But guess what! One day I came across a title called Soulmate, written by Deepak Chopra and that too a fiction!! So I knew I had to read this and I just picked up this book.
The thing that attracted me to this book was its cover an…

REVIEW: Lights! Scalpel! Romance! byJas Kohli

Being a surgeon is not easy. And the ones in Nirog Hospital are the best at making it worse.

Amidst all this chaos, Nipun makes every effort to find love but his efforts fail every time. When he’s not failing, he’s falling—and literally. Soon he starts being known as a doctor who is more dangerous than the disease itself. 

Will Fiasco King Nipun attain his two degrees—MS in surgery
and pass certificate in romance?

Lights! Scalpel! Romance! invites readers to become a part of the fun side of hospital life, where a surgeon’s routine is akin to driving in a Formula One race every day.

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…

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

Until her past collides with her present.  And it’s her turn to lie. 
To everyone…including herself.
