The Blurb:

What will you choose between your life and death? 

Who would you give preference, yourself, your family or your friends? 

She achieved everything she wanted. She gave way to who wandered away from their path or had no opportunity by founding a music studio and exploring her own love for music. Her life was perfect until the day her world went upside down. She quietly surrendered to the situations and stood brave for rest of her world. Her friends also wanted her to move on. But then HE arrived. HE was her admirer and the only one, she was comfortable with. Still, she pulled her feet back when love bloomed in her life again instead of indulging into HIS life. So, what troubled her? 

That was not the end of her story, but was it the beginning or she just had a pit-stop? 

Come let’s discover the destination of her story.

My Review:

       Adhira is someone, who all her life, has put the dreams of others' ahead of her own. She is strong and independent yet fragile somehow. She is a successful woman who has achieved great heights in her life all by herself. The story begins with a shocking news where we get to know that Adhira is suffering from Bone Marrow Aplasia. Things start to get complicated when she refuses to take treatment. But Adhira being the selfless person, once again puts her friend's happiness in front of her own and starts to plan and prepare for her best friend and soul sister Riddhi's wedding in full swing. But as much as she tries to remain happy, things have a way of getting out of her hands and soon she finds herself at a juncture from where she couldn't get back. Her world is shattered totally and her smile seems to be lost. What will happen from then? Will she be able to find her way back? Will she find love again and if she does, will she be able to give it another shot? Read this beautiful journey of Adhira to find out more.


Things I Liked:  

  • Adhira's character is sketched really well as a girl who cares about her friends more than herself.
  • Her selflessness and stability of thoughts were worth appreciating. It is hard not to like her after you read about her.
  • The picturesque beauty of Manali, the enjoyment of the friends' gang, the preparations for the dream wedding, the mischief and the brewing love were some of the WOWs of the story.
  • The bonding between Adhira and Siddharth was woven so beautifully that it was a treat to read.
  • The ending hasn't been done with a happily ever after. It is written in a way where hope is visible at the end of the tunnel but the journey till there is left to the imagination of the readers. That, somehow, seemed realistic.
  • The title suits well with the story line. Finding the lost love is depicted well in Adhira's story. 
  • Also, the cover picture is beautiful and somehow manages to capture the beauty and innocence of Adhira well.


Things I Disliked:

  • The third person narration gets confusing sometimes. Especially when 'I' is used, it takes some time to realize it's not in reference to the protagonist but to Riddhi.
  • There were many typos and grammatical errors. The book would have been really good if the editing was done well.
  • The flow wasn't quite smooth.
  • Attention wasn't given to the side characters much. They were introduced and brought into the picture but soon their presence would be ignored completely.


Verdict:

       A nice book but could have been lot better with some good editing and stabilized narration. Nevertheless, the story is quite good and makes a quick read. Recommended for those who like to read love stories.

My Rating:


Until the next review,
Keep Reading :)

Love,
Starry Eyed Reader :)
