Sweet summer romance I read and loved When Dimple Met Rishi last year so I was eagerly anticipating this book, and whilst I didn't enjoy it quite as much that doesn't mean it's not delightful! Coming into the third week of a reading slump this was a joy to read. Funny and sweet, the story zips along at a nice pace without rushing the romance. I've seen some negative comments about Twinkle in reviews but I found her completely relatable - who didn't have mixed feelings about boys or fantasise about revenge on the mean girls at that age?! (Sidenote: Much as I like Sahil, Twinkle doesn't owe him anything just because he's nice, and it saddens me that so many girls still absorb this toxic notion. Anyway, I digress!) I love her feminism, and in the post #MeToo era I hope we hear more stories from Twinkles and less of the dudebros who've dominated up to now. I found a little of the conflict (romantic and friendly) slightly annoying, but it's absolutely true to the age of the protagonists and target audience, so it would be churlish to deduct a star! Plus, honestly, it's very typical of romances - if everything ran smoothly there wouldn't be a story!
Loved this book! “Geeks are smart and talented and passionate. I don’t think that’s a bad thing.” This book was such a wholesome and lovely one packed with romance, emotions, feminism, desi swag and complicated relationships as well as self-development. "Being a human belonging to the wallflower genus, I'm kinda used to swallowing my words instead of speaking them" Twinkle was a great character who went through a lot of development. She is shown as an under-confident yet passionate wallflower who lives to direct movies. Her life is a struggle what with her family being poor and pretty much absent except for her dadi and recently losing her best friend Maddie to the popular group, Twinkle is down in the dumps. Then she formulates a plan to direct a movie with Sahil to showcase in the school fest which will make her famous. If not that then dating the popular hotshot Neil, Sahil's twin brother, will definitely get her in the popular group and help her win back her best friend. There's just one problem...she starts falling for the wrong brother. And when the power of being a film director gets to her she begins to change. Will Twinkle be able to retain her true identity and find love while winning back her best friend? "Sometimes I worry I don’t know who I really am. Sometimes I’m afraid nothing I do will ever be enough to set me apart.” Sahil has been in love with Twinkle since he was 12. As a fellow nerd and film enthusiastic he finally gathers the courage to ask Twinkle to work with him on the film. Sahil is a sensitive and kind boy who is tired of hiding in his brother's shadow. He has finally found a girl who likes him and sees him for what he truly is... or has he? What will Sahil do when he discovers that Twinkle has been crushing over his twin brother Neil all along? I love how Twinkle talks about the patriarchy and wanting to be a women of colour who becomes a director because that minority group is so marginalized and she's not going to let it stand in the way of her dream. She's a quiet girl who learns to get a voice as she spends more and more time with Sahil who encourages her to speak up for herself and instills her with self-confidence. With Sahil she feels confident and seen. But as time progresses maybe she's starting to speak to much? Her anger over life boils over at the wrong times and she's clearly seen struggling in her journey. I like all the other minor and side characters in this book too. Starting with the families, I love Twinkle's dadi who is slightly eccentric but nevertheless very wise and loving. Twinkle's parents have a lesser role to play but her mother and her nani's backstory in the end comes out unexpectedly and definitely had me crying at midnight. Sahil's parents are also a nice bunch and I love how his father is breaking the stereotypes of men retaining their masculinity by refusing to wear floral clothes and aprons and refusing to cook. It's absolutely lovely and refreshing. Maddie was a very conflicted girl who was trying to balance two worlds and failing miserably. On some level I totally related to her but she was definitely giving Twinkle a cold shoulder too many a time. I love how their friendship was explored throughout the book, especially how it ended :) Hannah was one character I absolutely disliked but here's the thing, her backstory was beautiful and fit perfectly into the story and totally blew my mind. Sandhya Menon definitely knows how to play with our minds! Violet, Skid and Aron were all refreshing with heir support for Twinkle and Sahil and added an element of humor. They were there to provide the characters with solid advice and guidance, especially Violet without whom Twinkle could have strayed off the right path. The book also had a small LGBT and black people rep which was so cute. If I have to explain the book in one word it would be 'ADORABLE'. From the way it was written and the way the characters interacted and how their romance was carried out, everything was cute and wonderful. And at the same time Sandhya Menon managed to explore so many important topics? I am in awe. Such a great book to end 2o18 with! “Geeks are smart and talented and passionate.

From Twinkle With Love is an adorable and funny novel that will make ... Rating: 5 stars. Spoiler Free Review: From Twinkle With Love is an adorable and funny novel that will make you laugh out loud on one page, and make you cry in public on the next. I know that 16 year old me would’ve cried from joy because she would’ve seen a heroine just like her, the star of the show, struggling and learning the same lessons as her, and she wouldn’t have felt so alone. This book meant so much to me, and I know it will to so many other marginalized, especially Indian, teens. I have only once cried on the bus before, and that wasn’t even because of a book. When I read this, when I read about Nani and Dadi, when I read about Twinkle’s confusion, Twinkle’s mother, Twinkle’s struggle, I physically felt my heart hurt. Not only that, but the fierce, strong feminist thoughts, the determination to break that glass ceiling, the fight in Twinkle to earn the right to wear the “I am my ancestor’s wildest dreams” shirt left me speechless. Twinkle is a teenager, she makes impulsive, foolish mistakes; she gets in head over heels on a bad plan; she feels like her career is now or never, and that is such a good representation of young adults, in my opinion. I know when I was writing as a 16 year old, I felt like I had to write the best book ever and get it published right away, or my career as a writer will never happen. Hell, I’m 18 and I still feel like that even though I know that that’s not true. Twinkle was a relatable, funny, sometimes reckless, main character, and I am glad I got to meet her. I cried, I laughed, and I cannot tell you enough how important this book is. TW: Aromisic language, ableist language
Feel good! So many lessons to learn from this book! And. SAHIL 😍 The leads were someone we could connect with. Read!
Perfect!! Perfect book! Fast delivery! Very happy!!
Beautiful book Sweet, unique YA contemporary book, I really loved the main character, and would definitely recommend!
Female director Told through letters, aspiring filmmaker and wallflower Twinkle Mehra learns a lesson about love while directing a movie for the Midsummer Night festival, in which her longtime crush and his twin brother are also participating. I love this cover it's so attractive and fun AND the girl on the cover looks like Deepika Padukone! I started reading the book and the author's reference to Shaandaar made me so happy! It's one of my favorite movies. I watched in on a plane while traveling and when I got home I watched it three times back-to-back on Starz! It's such a good movie.
Sweet, laugh-out-loud rom-com with deep roots This book is absolutely fabulous and is an easy 5 star rating!!! I laughed out loud several times (which is unusual for me) and really enjoyed the characters voice. The story follows Twinkle through ups and downs as she sort of 'finds herself' amongst her friends, her love, and her passion. The character is in high school and her voice on the page fits that age – this is not a 25 year old masquerading as a 15 year old. The messaging is really positive, and all the major characters grow in the story.
A quick read that will leave your heart Happy! I loved every single thing about this story <3 Twinkle was absolutely me when I was in high school, and I love that as Twinkle's friendship with Maddie soured, her friendship with Sahil blossomed. The death/growth of their relationships was so well done <3 And I loved watching Twinkle grow into herself as a film direction, even while making mistakes that almost soured the whole thing. The fact that almost all of the tension came from Twinkle's choices rather than an outside force was excellent, and while I was hesitant about the journal-format at first, it was the perfect way to the tell the story, especially with the texts/emails/blog posts interspersed. If you want a quick read that will leave your heart happy, TWINKLE is it!
Not Dimple but still just as Fun Twinkle wants to be a director and writes in her journal to famous female directors she admires. But It doesn’t feel as a book written in a journal though, more an odd quirk at the beginning of each paragraph. One of my favorite parts of this story was the complicated friendships that a a huge part of life, it felt realistic in a way few books capture, also the insecurities the characters felt. It was good and it was a fun, fast book to read!
