Review: My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma

Blurb from Goodreads:
The romance of Stephanie Perkins meets the quirk of Maureen Johnson, then gets a Bollywood twist in this fate-filled debut that takes the future into its own hands. 

Winnie Mehta was never really convinced that Raj was her soul mate, but their love was written in the stars. Literally, a pandit predicted Winnie would find the love of her life before her eighteenth birthday, and Raj meets all the qualifications. Which is why Winnie is shocked when she returns from her summer at film camp to find her boyfriend of three years hooking up with Jenny Dickens. As a self-proclaimed Bollywood expert, Winnie knows this is not how her perfect ending is scripted.

Then there's Dev, a fellow film geek and one of the few people Winnie can count on. Dev is smart and charming, and he challenges Winnie to look beyond her horoscope and find someone she'd pick for herself. But does falling for Dev mean giving up on her prophecy and her chance to live happily ever after? To find her perfect ending, Winnie will need a little bit of help from fate, family, and of course, a Bollywood movie star.

My Review:
So, so cute!  Even if you aren't that familiar with Bollywood, you will love this YA romance.  It's witty, fun and I just loved the characters so much.  This felt real but also wasn't trying too hard. This is just one of those books that reads effortlessly - I started it and finished it before I knew it.  This is rare for me with YA lately and I was so happy to devour this in less than a day.  I definitely can't wait for more from this author and highly recommend picking this one up for a delightful, fast summer read!

My So-Called Bollywood Life comes out next week on May 15, 2018 and you can purchase HERE
According to Google, a grave was supposed to be six feet deep, but Winnie Mehta didn't want to put that much effort into digging. Besides, it wasn't as if she was dumping an actual body or anything.
