All Signs Lead Back To You by Aniesha Brahma
Publication Date: November 18th 2016
Blurb from Goodreads: 2013.
As the final bell for the day rang on their last day in school, Diya Rai, had a chill run down her spine. The chill of not knowing what the future holds for her and her high school sweetheart, Ashwin Chowdhury.
So she does a preemptive strike.
She dumps him before he can hurt her.
Two years later, Ashwin and Diya, cross paths. Each holds grudges, feelings and only one half of the story that completes them.
Told from alternating points of view, through a non-linear timeline, this is the story about first love, second chances and ALL the SIGNS THAT LEAD BACK TO YOU.
Cover Page: There is a window in the cover page where title of the book is written. When you’ll read the book you’ll get to know the significance of this window. This cover page is pretty much what lured me to request this book.
Plot: Frankly, I didn’t think it was something new. It was the same romance stories that I’ve read a million times. If you’re a regular wattpader then you’ll understand what I’m trying to say.
- When someone you care about leaves you, they’re never really gone. They stay in your heart and in your memories.
- In some forgotten book, I had read long ago that you could literally walk yourself out of a bad mood. Could I possibly walk myself out of the weird mood this evening had put me in?
- When you really matter to someone, that person will always make time for you. No excuses, no lies, no broken promises.
- I know they say that first love is the sweetest, but that first cut is the deepest.
Overall: This book was okay-okay for me. This book did had its charm but just didn’t work that much that I’d expected it to. What I didn’t like or more like hated was the character of Nina. She was a hell a annoying character that I would want to rip apart. I know author wanted to make her as a cupid but she only comes out to me as an annoying self-proclaimed jury.
As for the Diya’s character, she might be my favourite all along the book. She had a mystery and a sense of humor that I loved the most. Ashwin’s character was okay-okay. It was neither good nor bad.
I think the book was lacking a solid plot. I’ve heard so many appreciating things about the book ‘When we collide’ by the same author. I read its blurb and it was more intriguing than this one.
I would recommend it as a one time summer romance read. 🙂
