The Romance Addict

I'm a student from Kolkata, India. I was barely 3 yrs old when I first read a book and since then there has been no stopping me when it comes to books.I'm not just obsessed about books.I have other hobbies(skating, painting) and ambitions(I'm studying to be a comp sci. engineer and someday make my parents really really proud of me).But BOOKS are something I have always been passionate about. I've learned so much from them.Reading a book is like entering a whole new world.It gave me dreams, hope and friends. And IMO, there is nothing else that someone needs when they have a great book with them. Ok, say maybe I'm a little obsessed. Reading has given me so much. So, I figure writing reviews on the books I read is my way of thanking the community. It is something I can give back. It is my way of helping the authors & publishers so that they keep writing & publishing wonderful books. I don't promise to always write a review for every book I read or as soon as I read, but I'll write as many reviews as possible. Also, I won't let any personal feelings towards any author/publisher compromise any review I write.

Irrepressible You

The Barbershop Girl - Georgina Penney ★★1/2
Ever since I saw the synopsis of this book I had wanted to read it. And recently I managed to take out time to strike this book from my to-read list.But sometimes, unfortunately, reality does not meet any expectations and leaves us feeling confused.

Confusing the reader seems to be a theme that is followed throughout the book. The story seems to be quite fast-paced and many sub-plots arise but are not visited properly by the author. Also the MCs seem to fall in love quite fast and it all feels unfeasible and quixotic. The heroine interactions with the hero make her look like a starry-eyed and fanciful and feeble-minded romantic. The hero however remains an inconsiderate bastard before and after falling in love.Also the heroine is far too forgiving to the hero as well as other supporting characters. She accepts him all too easily after he apologises. The heroine is the hero's muse and he writes disparaging slander about her in his weekly column at a newspaper and keeps writing it even after he falls in love and all the heroine needs to forgive his fraud is a confession of 'I love you'!!!

For all the high hopes I had on this book, none of it gained fruition !:(
