Review: From Twinkle, with Love

Publication Date: May 22nd, 2018
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Genera: YA, Contemporary, Romance 
Amazon ~ Goodreads ~ TBD

Synopsis: 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.

My Rating
4/5 stars

My Review
I absolutely loved Sandhya Menon's first book When Dimple Met Rishi, but From Twinkle, with Love completely store my heart. This book was absolutely fantastic from beginning to end.

Twinkle has a lot going on in her life. Her best friend Maddie has joined the popular crowd and seems to be embarrassed to be seen with Twinkle, so when a secret admirer by the name of N starts emailing Twinkle, she is absolutely sure that it is Neil, one of the most popular boys in school, who has the power to make Twinkle popular and win back her best friend. The only problem is that Twinkle is falling for Neil's twin brother Sahil. As drama unfolds in Twinkle's life, she must follow her heart and decide which twin she should go for, and who her true friends really are.

I absolutely adore Twinkle as a main character, I loved reading in her point of view. She is so genuine and sweet, but she also carries a darkness in her that we all face at one point in our lives. I think her character was so relatable, and so inspirational with her female empowerment and her ambition. I think she is a great main character and a great role model for younger girls.
Although I loved Twinkle, and I really liked Sahil and their romance together. My favourite character in this novel was Vicky. She truly surprised me, in a good way. Vicky is one of the popular girls that Maddie hangs out with, who actually ends up becoming great friends with Twinkle. At first, I thought that Vicky was just trying to trick Twinkle, but she was genuinely nice and truly cared about Twinkle the whole time. She honestly deserves an award for one of the best supporting characters.

I thought the plot of the story was great. The pace is great, and there is enough going on in the novel to keep you interested. I finished this book in one night, because I could not put it down and just wanted to continue reading until I got to the end. The one problem I had with Menon's previous book was that it was very predictable, and while this novel was slightly predictable, I was definitely surprised a few times (aka, how I was surprised Vicky turned out to be nice), so that was an improvement I was very happy to see.

Overall, I loved Twinkle and her story. I thought this novel was cute and inspirational to young women. I definitely recommend this book to people looking for a book that will lift your spirits. 

Happy Reading,
