“…I’m just hanging out, sorta painting (that’s the best I can do) and petting Roux, the adorable red Lab that belongs to the lady who owns the place. He keeps putting his gigantic head in my lap every time I pick up my brush and looking at me, like, You can’t resist this, Twinkle. Let’s be real.

Sandhya Menon’s sophomore novel From Twinkle, with Love is just as sweet and adorable as her debut. I love the focus on female friendships and the fact that it highlights how devastating it can be to lose your best friend because you are growing apart. You can check out my mini-review of this one hereCover is linked to Goodreads.

From the Goodreads Synopsis:

      “Aspiring filmmaker and wallflower Twinkle Mehra has stories she wants to tell and universes she wants to explore, if only the world would listen. So when fellow film geek Sahil Roy approaches her to direct a movie for the upcoming Summer Festival, Twinkle is all over it. The chance to publicly showcase her voice as a director? Dream come true. The fact that it gets her closer to her longtime crush, Neil Roy—a.k.a. Sahil’s twin brother? Dream come true x 2.
      When mystery man ‘N’ begins emailing her, Twinkle is sure it’s Neil, finally ready to begin their happily-ever-after. The only slightly inconvenient problem is that, in the course of movie-making, she’s fallen madly in love with the irresistibly adorkable Sahil.
      Twinkle soon realizes that resistance is futile: The romance she’s got is not the one she’s scripted. But will it be enough?
      Told through the letters Twinkle writes to her favorite female filmmakers, From Twinkle, with Love navigates big truths about friendship, family, and the unexpected places love can find you.”

  1. I don’t think I’ll read this one or the one before it as it just doesn’t sound like my kind of read anymore (though it does look kind of sweet and heart-warming!)
    I’m glad you enjoyed it, nevertheless 🙂 YA laugh-out-loud contemporaries are honestly hard to find and while most people find them funny I usually don’t so it’s a bit frustrating… But oh well, I’ll keep looking!
