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.
I can only describe this authors as adorable! Her books are adorable and her writing is adorable. ADORABLE. This was such a quick read, finished it in less than 24h, and just… that’s right, adorable. If you loved When Dimple Met Rishi I think you’ll love this one just as much if not more. I’m not usually a fan of contemporaries set in high school but this was too cute for words.
Menon has handled some tougher topics in this one and did it so smoothly! It’s not easy to dive into depression and seamlessly weave it in a beautiful way. Well done Menon! If you’re looking for a cute fun read this summer or a book that will warm your heart From Twinkle, With Love is the book for you.
