The biggest compliment I can give this book is that it was exactly what I needed when I needed it. It's a sweet rom-com that avoids a lot of the usual pitfalls (the sample chapter gave me the impression that the plot would involve Amruta asking Jish for advice because he's the rom-com ruler with seven published "rom-coms") and manages to maintain its charm from the first word to the last. It also helped that Amruta, like me, loved to read and had the same opinion about the kind of books that Jish writes - cliches in poor English (with titles like, Please Find Attached: My Heart). Amruta's opinion does not change even as she falls in love with Jish; she just pushes him to hold a higher standard for himself and be a better writer. How refreshing. The plot point that drives them apart is a little contrived but all is forgiven for that hilarious gift-of-a-magi-esque climax.
Absolutely loved the book! simply amazing!! waiting eagerly for the next one by the writer... :D
And yet, here I am, falling in love with my THIRD Indian Book so far this year!
It Must’ve Been Something He Wrote is a HILARIOUS, swoon worthy read set in the world of books, writers and protein shakes.
Amruta is a book snob. She needs her books to be real and funny and filled with flawed characters and not perfect people that know they are perfect for each other with just one glance across a crowded room.
Amruta is a marketing associate at the prestigious Parker Hailey’s Publishers and despite her best attempts to be good at her job, all she ever does is show up in the office in rain-soaked clothes, and insult their biggest author to his face.
Jishnu Guha’s books are the kind that Amruta detests – actually, they are the ones she detests the most. With titles like ‘You Had Me at Hello… Now Goodbye’ and ‘Let Me Be Your Hero’, she thinks he is the embodiment of all that is wrong with the Indian book market. And the man isn’t any less infuriating – a serial selfie taker, gym freak and only a slight murderer of the English language – she knows she can never stand him.
Until, that is, she really gets to know him. As he helps her out with her latest crush and her work and family problems, her new friend is slowly becoming the first person she wants to call after exciting news and the one she wants to see at the end of the day.
I can’t resist cute love stories, and this one took the cake. It literally had me going I WANT THIS LIFE. I WANT IT ALL.
Apart from Amruta and Jishnu, there were loads of secondary characters like Jyo and Bunts and Amruta’s family that really made the story, and I’m hoping Nikita brings up back to this world with one of their stories.
With just the right doses of the Crazy Indian Family mixed with helpings of ‘modern’ thought, with just the right amount of romance and friendship, sass and swooning, this book is a MUST read!
I can pretty much guarantee that this will make you fall in love!
