My So-Called Bollywood Life Reviews
This book was just absolutely adorable. Even as someone who has never watched a Bollywood film in my life, it was super accessible and interesting. And now I want to check out some of the movies referenced in the book!
I really loved the main character, Winnie. She was funny and headstrong, and stood up for her dreams time and time again. I loved her interest in films, especially the parts with film splicing.
This was just good, you guys! I wish more people were talking about it!

Wait.What?Bollywood?Dream sequences with Shah Rukh Khan?Full on drama?
Is this going to be "I Hate Love Stories" meets "Jab We Met"?
I am so hyped for this.

A cute, sometimes over-the-top, read about a girl following the prophecy given to her by the family psychic. She believes a boy whose name begins with an R and who gives her a silver bracelet is meant to be her love. And with Raj, it felt right....until she found out he was seeing another girl. Now she's found another boy to enjoy her time with named Dev. But, is he the one she's really meant to be with?
Some of the characters in the story are fairly one-dimensional (particularly Jenny, who I th ...more
