This blog is dedicated to both fiction and non-fiction. My personal favorites in fiction are mainly contemporary romance, suspense thriller,  historical fiction and YA then in non-fiction, I love to review inspirational, self-improvement and finance related books. I review outside these genres also because of the fact I love to read.

The Promise

The Promise - Nikita Singh Wow...I was totally awestruck by the author's tremendous way of writing.I couldn't really get my eyes off reading this sensational novel even for a nanosecond.Nikita Singh kept me hooked onto the book until the very end.Her great writing, right choice of characters, mature writing and her use of bold sentences in the beginning of each chapters to quote the depth of the scene was really thoughtful.I almost finished reading this novel within two-three hours.The promise is a story of two opposite people who accidentally meetup by fate and fall in love, then breakup due to misunderstandings that cannot be glued that easily. Shambahavi is a 23 year old,young carefree, bubbly interior designer who takes life as and when it comes .While Arjun is a 29 year old very strict ,emotionless and arrogant and selfish businessman whom any girl never wishes to have for in their life.What if these two meet up and hit it off so badly filled madly in love and break off for some ruthless reason?That is what happens in this particular story.The novel starts off at a snail pace but when it moves further and further, it goes off at a blistering pace then once again comes down.The conversations are the main strength of this astonishing novel.To my pleasant surprise everything in the novel was just so.....perfect. I liked each and every line of it.My favorite supporting characters are almost everyone as the characters are very very limited but i loved the way how the author has portrayed Shambhavi's father.For instance, when she says she is dumped by her boyfriend with his child, at this point he should be very angry rather all he says is one word 'okay', it tells it all and also loved Mili and Tutul for their immense support to their best friend in trouble.I had a great past time reading this extremely fascinating novel.The first half made me all go laughing and giggling while the latter part made me cry(i even shed some tears) and sympathize for Shambahvi and also Arjun, when he finally realized what he has done to her although the damage he caused cannot be repaired that easily which he damn well knows.Overall, there is nothing to dislike in the story.This is a must read
