For the Sake Of Love by Anamika Mishra Book Review

I found the cover of the book to be highly appealing, indicating that it’s going to be a love story! But there are so many love stories already out there. Was this one any different? Read below to find out!


Young, pretty and successful, Twisha Khanna has it all. She works hard and has no time for frivolities like love. After all, being the creative head of a happening travel magazine is no joke.

So when she travels to Shimla on an assignment, the last thing on Twisha’s mind is love. But then, life has other plans. On finding a stack of old love letters that speak of an unrequited romance, Twisha is convinced that she must find the man who wrote these letters and help him.

Along the way, she meets spoilt rich boy Alex, who is everything she would NOT want in a man. As the two try to reunite the old lovers mentioned in the letters, they are hardly aware that how they feel about love and life is going to change forever…

The LazyScoop Book Review:

Twisha Khanna, works for a travel magazine and is told to visit shimla for magazine story along with her irritating colleague Bobby. Their journey takes a turn when they discover some old love letters which shake them to the core. And thus begins the quest to find the man David, who is the writer of those letters and for the person for whom it had been written. Will they be successful in finding that person behind those letters? Will they be able to find the person for whom it been written? Will Alex, the handsome but arrogant grandson of David, get along well with bobby and Twisha?

I think this is one of the best love stories I’ve read. Why? Because there’s not even a single dull moment in this book. We constantly look forward to what’s going to happen next? For whom are those letters for? Will David meet Jasmine? Will Twisha meet David or Jasmine? The start of this novel itself is bang on with those letters, which you read and get insight into the writer of those letters, you wonder how the dates are moving ahead, how his life is changing and questions keep coming in your mind, will he get a reply from the other person or not? What’s going to happen in the end?

I loved how two love stories were intertwined in this book, one eternal and one establishing it’s base as we read it. Characterization is also good, Twisha being independent, I found her to be bit impatient. But she definitely is good at heart. Bobby is shown to be chirpy, and vivacious. She’s the girl who gets excited on small things and is generally very sweet. Alex’s character is good, but I couldn’t completely understand his thoughts and nature. At first he appeared arrogant, and then the opposite, I would’ve liked to know what makes him change his behaviour. There are other characters like David, Yanaji, Jasmine, Eliza and Chris who add depth to the whole story and each one has a purpose.

I liked the conversations between Twisha and Bobby, also the transition in their friendship was interesting to read. I think the writer of this book is really smart, she has woven a love story by adding a heart touching love story in the backdrop and she doesn’t let the story be monotonous by making all the characters different from each other.

The narration is simple and it wonderfully flows ahead. All the description of mountains and scenaries are beautiful written. The pace is apt, it went fast where it needed to be and gave ample description of emotions and feelings of Twisha where it needed to be, to establish a connect with the reader. The Climax of the book is unpredictable. It’s emotional and yet would bring a smile on your face.

LazyScoop Verdict:

There are writers who write long chapters and yet sometimes fail to establish an emotional connection with the readers. But Anamika Mishra does it beautifully, those small letters written by her are much more emotionally impactful. I think this is the best love stories coming from Westland, I found this one much better than their current bestselling love story novels too. This one deserves to be a Bestseller!

Black Coffee by Priyanka Nawalgaria Book Review.

Black Coffee- ‘Dark and Strong’ by Priyanka Nawalgaria has a cool looking cover and tagline. Initially, when I read the blurb, I thought this book to be motivational and Inspirational story of a women. Read on below to know what I actually think about the book after completely reading it. 

Author: Priyanka Nawalgaria

Book length: 140 pages.

Price: 189/- (Free Delivery)

Genre: Romance

Publishers: Half Baked Beans.


Meet Tamanna, a young ,beautiful and fun loving girl who marries Saarthak, rich, introvert and simple. Sounds fine, right? No, not really. Reason being Raj. Years later, she accidentally bumps into Raj . His short visit into her life only increases the vacuum that he had created ages ago. This void is then filled by a sudden entry in her life in the form of Aadil who sweeps her off her feet. They both fall for each other but in an entirely different manner. Frustrated by the various emotional and heart-breaking twists and turns, she finds solace in a beautiful and unexpected friendship. But before anything can happen a series of misunderstandings manage to ruin everything in Tamanna’s sweet little world . What happens that makes all of Tamanna’s relationships sour? What is it that makes her break all her ties ? Walk into Tamanna’s shoes to experience her transformation to Black Coffee- Dark and Strong.

What is it about? 

Black Coffee is a story of a girl named Tamannah who has big dreams. Dreams such as marrying the love of her life, becoming a Chartered Accountant. But destiny has other plans for her and she gets married to Sarthak. Can first love be forgotten so easily? What happens when it appears again after few years, things are surely to be different then, especially if you are married. Join Tamannah in her journey of finding herself, and her ambitions. 

LazyScoop Review:

The book started of well with an interesting prologue where Tamannah is asking for a black coffee and explaining how her personality is changed over the years due to whatever she has gone through. How she has become strong and dark, thus building the reader’s expectation that the story which is going to unfold later is going to be moving, and totally inspiring. 


“Expectations are root cause of hurt.” they say, and that’s pretty much what happened when I read this book till the end. Maybe expected it to be really amazing, so I was disappointed. Though, the story isn’t bad. Actually story is average, short and simple. But it totally lacks depth, the writer says that the incidents happened, but actually doesn’t potray it. 

E.g – ‘We shared a different chemistry altogether, and with time, our friendship was also blossoming and flourishing’ is what is written about a character in the book. But, how that chemistry was different? How was their frienship blossoming isn’t potrayed in the book. Which makes the narrative shallow. 

If the story had been written with more depth and characterization, it would have really connected well with the reader. I wouldn’t have minded if the book was a thick one with profundity.

The initial story of how Raj and Tamannah meet for the first time is written well and was interesting to read. In the ending chapters, I felt Tamannah’s character untrustworthy. No matter how much love you’ve got for your first love, you can’t cheat your husband and claim to be strong. The writing loses it’s grip after few chapters. 

LazyScoop Verdict:

Black Coffee is a book which should be read with open mind and without expecting any motivational content, it’s a good one time read which is fast paced and can be a decent read while travelling.

Upcoming Book Review: White Smoke by Nikhil Mahajan. Stay Tuned! 

The Best Seller She Wrote by Ravi Subramanian-Review

First of all, I would like to thank BlogAdda for giving me this opportunity to review this amazing book. The Best Seller she wrote is one of the highly awaited books from Ravi Subramanian since it’s his first romantic thriller and readers (especially fans like me were super eager to read this!)



So, Let’s begin!

The book’s Cover designed by – ‘Think WhyNot’ looks extremely attractive, the cute face of a girl and a dude’s face on the right wearing those author-like spectacles looks new and appealing. Even the background colour, which is Yellowish Mango colour, makes it look yummy. (That’s the right word, consciously chosen)


As you open the book, you see Ravi Subramanian’s Note saying –


which brings a smile onto your face.

The Plot:-

The bestseller she wrote begins in a packed auditorium of IIM, Bengaluru, where a branch director of National Bank, an alumnus of the same institute, and yes, of course, an author who has four books to his credit, has come. His books have sold four million copies and two have also been made into a movie. In short, he’s a super successful author!

Shreya, is an ambitious girl who is beautiful, outspoken, young and reckless, who always aspires to become a successful author. Somehow, Aditya and shreya end up in a verbal spat, strangely or so, their anger soon turns into love/ attraction/ infatuation. This happens when shreya actually reads Aditya’s books that she feels attracted to him. Their worlds intertwines and the magic of love spells. Aditya who is enchanted to her is actually married to a loyal, devoted woman- Maya.

After some romance between shreya and Aditya, we realise that Shreya is actually quite self-centered and is only using Aditya for realising her dreams. We realise this by the way she brings out the topic of manuscripts and dream of writing amidst some romantic moments.

Maya, Aditya’s wife (Whom you pity while reading.) gets infected with a deadly disease. And, when she is dealing with this trauma, she gets another shock of her life when she discovers something fishy in Aditya’s phone and thus gets to know his unfaithfulness towards her.

Soon, Aditya realises his mistake of cheating his devoted wife. He asks for her forgiveness and tries to end his demeaning relationship with Shreya. Shreya is aggravated with this and threatens him to destroy his career. How? You’ll know when you read.

Will Maya accept Aditya’s apology and will the both be together? Or the love story of Shreya and Aditya will take a new positive turn? Will  shreya be successful in publishing her book? Will Sanjay a family friend of Aditya, help him get out of this mess? Will Shreya destroy Aditya’s career?

You’ll get all the answers when you read the book.


You can read this synopsis on the back cover.

My opinion:-

The cover page might make some readers misjudge the book to be a romantic love story, but NO! It’s not just a romantic love story, of course, there’s romance, but it’s a thriller too! Like every Ravi Subramanian novel, this one has many twists and turns. The characters play with your brain, you trust a character in one chapter and they betray you in another chapter.

Thus, I being a fan of the narrative style of Ravi Subramanian with many thrilling twist and turns, wasn’t disappointed at all. This one has romance, betrayal, redemption and hidden greed all coated with surprising thrills which make it a perfect read!

What I liked:-

  1. The interesting story.
  2. The way Ravi Subramanian has introduced all the characters, all seem to wearing a mask. Their true faces are revealed as you read.
  3. Though a romance novel, Ravi sir has kept the thrill element alive.
  4. Fast paced. Ravi sir doesn’t waste time describing unimportant things like the colour of the clothes or what the characters are eating. He writes to the point and keeps the readers glued to the book.
  5. All the current affairs are mentioned like, Ebola, Blogadda, Iphone-6, Twitter trends, which makes the story seem fresh and new!

What I didn’t like:-

  1. Some characters needed more in-depth information. e.g Melvin. Yes only one negative point, otherwise this book is too awesome.

By the way, In one of the recent TOI contests, I had asked Ravi Subramanian sir one question about this book, and this is what he had to say:


So, has he successfully won his challenge? Yes, he has come out with flying colours.
