~::~[Review]~::~(In)Eligible Bachelors ~::~

Marriage is traditionally the destiny offered to women by society. Most women are married or have been, or plan to be or suffer from not being.~ Simone de Beauvoir


Arranged marriages though very common in India for centuries together are still very much prevalent and happening.. The pain that the gal goes through in each of the “rishta” that comes is m sure more than what she feels during labour..There still exist the Maa-s who feel her kid(irrespective of son/daughter) is one up on the other person’s comparing qualifications, skin colour/texture, height, salary package et al. bringing the skin of Generation Y to blush a deep beetroot till their roots which otherwise on any given day would be as normal as yours or mine.

Never before have a I read any book so fast in my life 😉
Ineligible Bachelors- as the name might have already given a clue is about arranged marriage.. The narrator
also the female protagonist and her tell tales of meeting prospective groom alongside her inexplicable “chemistry n love” with her boss..Does kasturi have a say in front of an “if-u-loved-me-enuff-u-wud-meet-this-guy” mom and a “my-lips-are-sealed” dad? Will she marry the man she fell in love with.. or choose one of the guys her dearest MA chooses for her? Will She Wont She??

To all this drama add a few twists and turns accident, broken bones, hospital scenes, thugs, attempt to murder alongwith a few “crack-me-up” meets with prospective grooms and you have a Hilarious CHICK LIT..
Overall I am satisfied with the book… I laughed, cried, swore at the right places.. which definitely means I enjoyed the book.. The best thing about reading Chick-lits is relating to the characters in the book which is an important aspect to relish a book and yes to a very large extent I could relate to the main character in more than many ways.. Another tale of Happily Ever After and hell, we have enough worries in reality we could do with a wee bit of happiness in the books and movies atleast 😉 I give it a 4/5

Kudos to Ruchita Misra.. Why? Cos for being a first time author her book has definitely captured my attention and I would recommend it to my friends.. Lay your hands on this one and m sure you r definitely not gonna regret 😉
And last but not the least thanks to BlogAdda, I dint have to beg, borrow or steal to lay my hands on this lovely book 😀

I heart New York

Well I read this sometime back.. And sadly reviewing it only now.. 😦

This one’s a typical chiclit novel..It has romance, drama, shopping etc written all over it..

Story is based on UK about a female who finds out in her best friend’s wedding that her fiancé has been cheating over her and she leaves the country in a huff and reaches NY.. She has no contacts, no idea where shes gonna live, she doesn’t know anyone in the new place.. And yet in a fit of anger and emotions she has practically left her homeland and entered a country which is completely Alien to her…

What does she do once she’s here, How does she come over him and where does her life go.. That’s how the story goes…

Oh well if you are expecting some juicy tidbits.. Sorry.. I have learnt not to give out the whole story while reviewing 😛

Be it books or movies 😉

The plot  is good.. Keeps you going.. Since its  a girly novel you definitely cant expect any gripping storyline or narration.. But its worth a read J

I would rate it on a chiclit scale of 3/5 not too impressive

Being a regular chiclit reader its easy to make out that Some areas could still be worked upon…

To imagine that over a break up someone would leave the country is a lil weird and unthinkable and to be able to plot on the thought and make it come out well has to be appreciated.. 😀

So you gals out there who like Chiclits can def go ahead and read this 😀
