Book Review of Generously Yours by Inderpreet Uppal

Hello Readers,

I know its been ages since I have updated any book reviews. I am sorry for being an ignorant towards this. Now I am back with an amazing book review of Generously Yours by Inderpreet Uppal.


Cover: The cover is colourful, fascinating and has stunning colour scheme.

Title/ Sub-Title : The title seems intriguing and unique. This title gave birth to the curiousity to read the book and I am surprised at my speed. Even after months I could finish this book in 15 minutes. The sub title has a deeper meaning attached to it.

Blurb: ‘Love is forever’ or so thought Diya.
Shy, bookish and loving, Diya never thought she would ever need to be anything else. Her charmed life slips away from her in ways, she never imagined.
Will Viren be able to sort the jumble of their lives or is it already too late?
A bittersweet story of life, longing, and lasting love.

Theme: The theme could be related as it reminded me of someone with the same issue. I wont reveal what that is about. For that you need to read the book. Love was one such theme that touched the heart.

Plot: The plot did not have much of twist and turns. It was simple and straightforward.

Characterisation: She has beautifully painted her characters. I am already getting attached to Divya and Viren.

Style: Since Inderpreet is an editor henceforth, I can understand her style of writing. She has a unique style of writing which will make you fall in love with the way she play with words. She has used third person narrative, fantabulous descriptions. She has made a simple story lively.

Ending: I felt the ending was different, maybe not the way we readers wanted it to be. Ofcourse, it doesnt have any death scene, thankfully. But she could have done in some other way.

Favourite lines:

She was a shy, homebody, bookworm, and he a flamboyant, traveler and a nomad.

The early morning strolls and breakfasts in the garden, the meals on the beach.


“At the height of their love affair, they had bought this house, a quaint little home with a patch of a garden, the gnarled bougainvillea tree blooming furiously, the only adornment there and the dual parking. “

Book Review of In the Flickering of an Eye

In the Flickering of an Eye by Neelam Saxena Chandra is a romantic fiction. This book is not like those lovey dovey romance. It highlights the spiritual concept of love, yes the ones we see in old generations. This type of love is always there and it never gets outdated. The story is set at a time when love was considered as a sin.


Sneek Peek: Twenty five years worth of ‘what ifs’ and ‘if onlys’ have haunted and tortured Vinay. He cannot help but go back in time again and again to that one moment that changed his life forever. A chance encounter with a person from his past, and a journey through the majestic hills of Kalimpong lead him to some of his answers, in the form of an elusive woman, who bears a striking resemblance to the woman he loved and lost. Will he finally get his happily-ever-after? Or will his story, tarnished when he was nineteen by the gotra system, forever be punctuated with too many fullstops? Read on to find out more.

My Review:

The story is set in Dhanoi Village where love is considered as a crime and ghotra system seems to be prevalent there. Vinay and Manju are the protagonists whose love story seems to be the toughest. Life takes a turn when these two lovers get separated by fate. Things take a new way when they again meet after twenty years. In this book, Neelam has talked about ghotra system, illiteracy of the village people, stream of consciousness technique, fate, chance and separation of lovers.  The cover is eye catching where the title has uniqueness in it. The style is simple, lucid and easy to understand with. Neelam has beautifully described the surroundings in a novel. When the train is moving, one can feel travelling in it. The situations sound realistic and at times you feel you are watching a movie.

ItsAllinThePlanets- A fantastic Novel

Its All in the Planets by Preeti Shenoy is most trending novel these days. This novel showcase the life of three individuals whose life gets connected because of its there in their planets. It is A well researched book that can challenge the real world. This is the first time that I had pre-ordered this book and I got a signed copy. Furthermore, I had won the Super Fan Contest which had video comversation with Preeti Shenoy and also, I got the journal ‘An Excuse to Life’ which is a handmade journal by Preeti Shenoy.


The cover and title of the book is fascinating. The cover takes you to a trance and a feeling of positivity engulfs us. The title gives us an insight that it has something to do with astrology that focusses on Planets. The Planets decide the destiny of our characters and this title is simply awesome.

The plot is well knit and the way Preeti maam has constructed it,is beyond appreciation. The protagonist’s life takes a turn when Nidhi meets Aniket. They both complement each other and the way they handle their relationships is impressive. Both are opposite to each other but they say, opposites attract but here planets played the role play.

The themes in this novel were unique and stole my heart. I really loved the concept of marriage. The way Nidhi admires his step mother and vice versa touched me. We all know that a step mother can never love her other children but this notion is clearly proved wrong by the author. Infact, Nidhi’s mother is her friend and confidante. The way Nidhi respects her and her father’s love is the highlight of the story. A new definaton of love could be seen through this segment. There are various concepts of love. In this, the author highlights the spiritual as well as materialisitic love. Aniket and Trisha comes under materialistic love where Trisha wants to change every bit in her boyfriend. Same is the case with Nidhi and her beau. But when Nidhi and Aniket are away from them, they look so perfect and complete. They are spiritually connected to each other and are just made for each other.

Further, we come across a beautiful bond of friendship between Aniket and Subbu. They both are techies and the way Subbu always cheer him up when he goes through tough times due to Trisha. They used to term it as a bad technical error.He does all the things to make his friend feel better. Their bond is so special.

Astrology is the main theme in this novel and the way it is highlighted is appreciable. The zodiac sign related information is thoroughly researched and the way the astrologer give her predictions is just so realistic.

The characterisation is the integral part of the novel and Preeti maam surpasses all the techniques. Her characters are her mouthpieces and the way she mananges to create constrast between the characters is impeccable. I felt Nidhi is somewhat like Preeti maam. Her qualities can be seen in Nidhi. Especially, blogging, art and craft, above all, staying positive no matter what happens in your life. The way Nidhi accepts her parents is mind blowing. You suddenly start respecting Nidhi and the author. Aniket, Trisha and Subbu’s character portrayal is different.

The author’s style of writing is simple,lucid and clear. It has brevity in it and loads of artistic skills. The way she pens down her thoughts, it looks like she is painting a masterpiece. The wide range of sentences, those blog updates add freshness to the novel.

Small Twitter interview with Preeti Maam

I asked her some small questions and here is her reply:

SKype Conversation With Preeti Maam

I never felt so special like I felt talking to Preeti Maam. I still remember as I gave my exam in full speed just to talk to her. The conversation went well and the way she talked to us was simply wow. She is a gem. We discussed about her books and she asked us to read and write if we wish to become a good writer. That conversation was the best part of my life. I might forget about books but this book would always be special for me.

SMall Review of her Handmade Journal

The handmade journal is her best art work I have seen. I really loved those quotes as they talked about life and how one should handle oneself under certain circumstances. It is really inspiring and is worth reading. I am glad that I won that journal.
