The Dwarf Did It...

From Twinkle, With Love

From Twinkle, With Love by Sandhya Menon

“Aspiring filmmaker and wallflower Twinkle Mehra has stories she wants to tell and universes she wants to explore, if only the world would listen. So when fellow film geek Sahil Roy approaches her to direct a movie for the upcoming Summer Festival, Twinkle is all over it. The chance to publicly showcase her voice as a director? Dream come true. The fact that it gets her closer to her longtime crush, Neil Roy—a.k.a. Sahil’s twin brother? Dream come true x 2.

When mystery man “N” begins emailing her, Twinkle is sure it’s Neil, finally ready to begin their happily-ever-after. The only slightly inconvenient problem is that, in the course of movie-making, she’s fallen madly in love with the irresistibly adorkable Sahil.

Twinkle soon realizes that resistance is futile: The romance she’s got is not the one she’s scripted. But will it be enough?

Told through the letters Twinkle writes to her favorite female filmmakers, From Twinkle, with Love navigates big truths about friendship, family, and the unexpected places love can find you.” ~ Description from Goodreads


My Review

I like contemporary and I like rom-coms but this book…… It was TOO fluffy and cute. I got this books in one of my Owl Crates last year so I went into it expecting to LOVE IT! Owl Crate never disappoints right? Wrong. This was the first book I have read by this author and it just didn’t click with me.

I will say I LOVED the way this story is written. The whole story was told in letters that Twinkle writes to her favorite film makers, group text from Sahil and his friends, and emails between Twinkle and a secret admirer. It flowed nice and was cohesive. The whole format was a win.

I didn’t fall in love with these characters. I honestly felt like they were just a cookie cutter copy of every troupe in every high school rom-com EVER made. It just was not interesting for me at all.

I don’t have a whole lot to say about this book. I didn’t hate. It might be weird to say that it was just too happy. I gave it 3 stars. I wont be rereading it though, and I more than likely will not be picking up When Dimple met Rishi or There’s Something About Sweetie.

Have you read this book or any other books by this author? If so, drop a comment! I want to hear your thoughts.
