Why I termed blissful romances "Because it is indeed that ". While I was reading, I went through a romantic journey where I saw myself among those led characters .
My Analysis : The cover of book could have been colorful like TBC BLOG TOUR POSTER .The black and white combination did not attract me , but the heart shaped bookmark with a blue stone on it's top attracted my attention a lot
Me Thinks : Metro Dairies by Namarata is wonderful book to read because
The forward is awesomely written
Each story reflects the different aspects of romance .
And the quotes or poems written by Namarata before the start of each and every story is really mind blowing to read .
Highly recommended to all especially the day -dreamers who dream of having a perfect life .
I thank Namarata for sending me ARC of her book and TBC and Rubina for hosting amazing blog tours like this .
Highly recommended for all the romantic souls out there!
I must say that Namrata has written a beautiful collection of love stories in all its forms and the many facets of relationships between couples.
Some of the stories that I really liked are:
Love Thy Dreams - It is the story of Abhi and Kavya; their love that holds steady over time and distance. Love blossoms in their pre-university days and holds good till the end.
Then, Now and Forever - This one just got better. A short story of Ron and Anna; where he learns to live his life again through a letter written by his grandfather, his namesake.
You & I - I simply loved the relationship between Zahir Khan and Radhika, their trust in each other. It’s the kind of love that’s ready to wait for a decade before tying the knot. Awesome!
Once in a lifetime - The story is a poignant tale of love between Nitya and Ansh. The author touches the reader’s heart by the way she’s woven the words. Too good!
While I have mentioned the above four, I must say that all of the tales are well-written and has something for the reader to take away.
Some quotes from the book that I really enjoyed reading:
"Love thy dreams, always, for they are the fuel that will drive you to your goal. I just helped you, but with your passion no dream of yours can remain incomplete.”
"Silent breeze, rustling leaves, and a faint music in the heart, Reminiscence of the beautiful time spent together, Wish I could hold you back today, tonight, and forever; Or maybe just pause the time and let you go away never!"
“I don’t know how, why, what, where and when. All I know is you have changed my world completely. You made me smile, which I had forgotten how to; you made me live when I had left it long back; most importantly, you made me love when I thought I would never be able to love, ever again. Today all that I want is to grow old with you and wake up in your arms every day, staring into your beautiful eyes, knowing that you are mine. Marry me, please!”
While the book has been very well written, I think that it needs a better editor and a tighter proofing. Except for that, it makes for a breezy and enjoyable read.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in PDF format from the author in return for my honest review.
As I turned the pages I found a common thread which connected all the plots. At some point in our life all of us wish to re-discover the spark that once defined our very existence. The plots re-assure the reader that love paves the way for hope and fulfillment.
Love isn’t complete without a slice of hope. It is here that Namrata scores. She gets the point across with a lot of depth. At times you have to drench yourself with love to enjoy it. I re-read the book until I fell in love with love again.
The language and intent is crystal clear which deserves a huge thumbs up. Even the chopping is done to perfection. A badly edited book makes me cringe even if the story is good.
I finished the book with a lovely smile on my face. For once I felt like a superhero who had found his secret weapon. Thank you Namrata for making me believe in love yet again.
Highly recommended for all the romantic souls out there.
My rating 4/5
PS: I loved the lines which precede each journey of love
