So, when you’re busy focusing your attention on the newborn, and the toddler, who is already potty trained and out of solids suddenly demands her share of attention again.
An unexpected and delightful reader review for Once Upon A Crush on Amazon yesterday.
A book lover’s delight, 15 June 2016
This review is from: Once Upon A Crush (Kindle Edition)
The cover design of ‘Once Upon a Crush’ with slightly smudged heart and red-coloured lipstick, sets the mood for the fun, light-hearted pleasure that this book is.
Rayna De is the main protagonist of ‘Once Upon a Crush’. She’s independent, about to turn 30 and has not love life. Her parents are after her to get married.
She has a crush on Deven Ahuja – Rayna compares him to Edward Cullen and Mr Darcy. Oh, and he has cheekbones comparable to Benedict Cumberbatch.
The stage is thus set for the emotions and the insecurities of being attracted, of getting to know someone. The hesitation of not asking a question frankly, and then looking for answers in gestures and random statements.
And especially our minds making mountains out of every molehill of gesture, statement and even silence.
The choice of not marrying, yet the insecurities of being alone.
I was hooked when I read Chronicles of Narnia and Lord of the Rings mentioned in the same sentence. Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, Fifty Shades of Grey, Phantom, When Harry Met Sally, Twilight Saga, and many more make this book a reader’s delight. Even the Queen of sarcasm and outspokenness, Aunty Acid finds a place.
The way the author plays with words is fascinating.
The book is great for easy reading with lots of humour thrown in.
There is not a moment of boredom reading this book. The story may not throw up any great surprises, but the words are strikingly expressive.
