This was a surprise at first then turned out to be a chore which explains the DNF.
I love the idea of having an Indian American YA heroine to read for once and a budding director as well, this was a first time for me. Twinkle Mehra is a 16-year-old "groundling", as what she calls herself, and seems to make it a life goal to be promoted into the ranks of the "silk-feathered hats" aka Shakespearean highschool hierarchy 2.0.
Initially, I enjoyed her inner monologues/ letters to iconic femal ...more
I loved this wonderful YA novel. It is written in letters to various female film makers and follows Twinkle as she makes her first film.
Twinkle views herself as a “groundling” and wants to be apart of the popular, “silk feathered hat,” group. As she makes her movie, she makes new friends and comes to learn more about herself.
There were some parts of the book where I felt incredibly frustrated with Twinkle’s thoughts and behaviors. But I had to remind myself that she is a teenage girl, and it’s ...more

This was a fun, adorable, sweet, YA contemporary that had me smiling the entire book.... there is something so readable about this author’s writing style.... in both this book and ”When Dimple Met Ricci” The characters were brought so amazingly to life....

TITLE: FROM TWINKLE, WITH LOVE.
DECEASED. I LOVE IT.
I was full blown obsessed with Dimple, so I was pretty much screaming at the post office when this arc showed up.
I loved Twinkle and Sahil. She’s smart and sassy and is working to be vocal. He’s sweet and adorable and working to be visible. They’re both feeling a bit neglected for different reasons and I loved watching them get closer. Twinkle does go through a period of icky and I wanted to just shake her, but her growth was perfect. However, it was Dadi who stole every scene she was in.

My heart is an emotional mess. So many feelings.
I loved everything about this book. It made me feel all kinds of emotions. Happinedd, sadness, laughter, anger, nervousness, and God knows what else. Seriously, it was all amazing. The plot, characters, and the format was another thing I loved.
Twinkle's chracters was amazing and I loved her. Some may say they found Twinkle's behavior frustrating or annoying but I related to it. When I am not thinking straight I tend to lash out at everyone too, i ...more
