Guys, this book was incredible and I wasn’t really expecting it to be so good. It was brutal but honest. I seriously have so many feelings about this book that, maybe, this review doesn’t justify it. You know, sometimes you come across such books where you feel so happy that you read it and become sad thinking about the actual story. This is what exactly happened to me for this book. This story is about Kiko, who is half Asian (a Japanese-American). She is trying to find her place in life while dealing with the stress of her family and her narcissistic mother, who is always surrounded by her own thoughts and always considered Kiko as inferior. She deals with her childhood trauma and social anxiety while in search of her real motive and the aim to get admission in an art school.

Guys, THIS BOOK WAS SUPER-DUPER ADORABLE and if you haven’t read it yet, I don’t know why you are waiting? Even I don’t know why I was waiting till date? No idea!! Okay, you must be thinking what is Oreo-ness in the title? Well, it’s a word that I derived just now for all the Oreos love that this book offers. If you love Oreos, you have to read it! I don’t think there is much that I can say that has not been said already a million times about this super-freaking-adorable book. But yet, without delaying further, I would simply like to give you 10 reasons to read it!
Could you imagine your life where you don’t remember anything anymore? Waking up with amnesia with a flood of emotions? Not able to decide what to feel- fear, confusion, panic, frustration? Feeling alone? I certainly can’t imagine myself being in that situation and this was exactly what attracted me towards this book. I knew from the beginning that this I would end up loving this, and I am glad I was not disappointed 🙂
I am such a sucker for cute romances and this book was no less. You must have heard how this book is all about insta-love and how people usually hate that. I agree. I too hate insta-loves in most of the cases, but this book doesn’t fall into that case, for me. Despite insta-love-y storyline, in the beginning, I loved it because it was more than that. I loved both Daniel and Natasha as the characters and I loved Nicola Yoon’s writing, though it was my first ever read of hers.
I have never been so confused before about the rating of a book. I struggled to give this story between 3.5 and 4 stars and eventually settled on the later one because of the unique concept that it portrays. The Marriage Pact is a psychological suspense thriller with an interesting plot. Eventually, in the west, the rate with which the marriages are failing, is pretty high. In such a world, would you be prepared to do anything to make your marriage successful?
Presenting my first ever buddy read with none other than Evelina @ AvalinahsBooks. She has done this kind of review a few times already and you can check them on her blog. This is my first time doing a buddy read and I am so glad that we both enjoyed this book equally. This review will be an interview-style post where each one of us will answer 7 questions that we asked each other after finishing the book.
What comes to your mind when you first read the name “Jane Austen”? Probably Pride & Prejudice? or any other novel written by her? Jane Austen doesn’t need any introduction (at least to the bookworms I guess?). Austenistan is an anthology containing 7 different stories inspired by Jane Austen’s work and are set in modern Pakistan. Sounds fun, eh?
There are two kinds of interesting books. One that you totally enjoy based on the plot and characters. The other is one that you don’t only enjoy but also consider as your true self and it convinces you that it is your story. This book falls into the latter category.
There are some books which make you feel happy and leaves you with a light mood. Then there are a few which are on difficult topics and make you want to discuss the theme. And finally there are a few ones which neither have a difficult topic nor the entertaining one, but yet they make you question your surroundings and beliefs. A Window to Her Dreams falls in the last category.
So, this is weird. I have never ever written a review immediately after finishing the book. And while I am writing this, it is 1:30 AM here! Can you believe it? This book just made me crazy and I have like multiple thoughts running wild into me, like spirals (yeah I am using the line from this book) and I want to share all those thoughts into this post, right now. Yes, I can’t wait to write it because I don’t want to miss anything that I am feeling right now. And pardon me before you go any further, this is going to be my longest review ever
