From Twinkle, with Love Reviews
THE MAIN CHARACTER WILL HAVE MY NAME. FUCKKDKFKDMFNR IM SCREAMING. THIS IS SO BROWN LOL
Filmmaking, girl-power, culture, and age-appropriate romance all wrapped up into one very YA novel. Lessons about confronting situations and learning who you (and others) are make this a worthwhile read for the YA crowd.
My favorite quote:
“When people show you who they are, you should believe them.”
Another cute story from the author of When Dimple Met Rishi! And also self five @ me for reading my eARC on time instead of 7 years late, I'm so proud. Anyway full review to come, but for now:
• this one reads a lot younger than Dimple's book so I preferred Dimple tbh
• I don't really understand or love film references lmao
• It was very cute/fluffy
• There is...a love square...😐

There are some extremely important benefits to this book. It features an Indian protagonist who is incredibly feminist and her views on the world and the patriarchy are so refreshing, and sweet, and really lovely. I loved the passion she felt for her filmmaking and the fact that she wanted to become a filmmaker so that she could change the world.
I also really loved Sahil for his geekiness and his full support of her vision. Whenever she goes on rants about the patriarchy, he doesn't ev ...more
Twinkle, twinkle little star…
Speaking of stars, Twinkle does not wish to become an actress or a singer. Instead, she wants to grow into a successful and recognized Indian-American female filmmaker who shakes the world with her powerful ideas.
She dreams big, and I love that about her. There’s nothing wrong with having what seem to be unreachable goals. I am one of those cheesy firm believers that you can achieve anything as long as you have a plan and a ton of passion.
And Twinkle certainly does. ...more
Thanks to the publisher for this review copy!
I absolutely adored Menon's 2017 title WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI and was so so excited to read this one and discover that it is just as wonderful, although completely different. TWINKLE is written completely in letters to famous female film makers, and details the attempts of teenage Twinkle Mehra to both create a fabulous movie for an upcoming school festival and make over her social image.
This story is sweet and romantic and 100% celebrates geeky love ...more
This book made my desi heart so so happy. Twinkle is such a lovely and inherently flawed young girl who makes mistakes throughout the book, but also grew and learned from them. I loved watching her blossom, and even when she made me mad and sad, I was rooting for her.
And then there was the pure cinnamon roll that is Sahil. Menon knows how to write kind, swoony boys!
If you liked Dimple, you'll love Twinkle!
This has been one of the best contemporary books I've read since like forever.
Twinkle was such a sweetheart oh my god! Her point of view was so funny and entertaining to read about and the style of the book through her letters to her idols and her future self told the story perfectly.
The idea of the film making was just so cool. I've never read 'Dracula', I have seen the movie and a few retellings but I am a massive fan of 'Midsummers Night Dream' and this went beautifully into the story.
The rom ...more
