SNYOPSIS FROM GOODREADS:
Aspiring filmmaker and wallflower Twinkle Mehra has stories she wants to tell and universes she wants to explore, if only the world would listen. So when fellow film geek Sahil Roy approaches her to direct a movie for the upcoming Summer Festival, Twinkle is all over it. The chance to publicly showcase her voice as a director? Dream come true. The fact that it gets her closer to her longtime crush, Neil Roy—a.k.a. Sahil’s twin brother? Dream come true x 2.
When mystery man “N” begins emailing her, Twinkle is sure it’s Neil, finally ready to begin their happily-ever-after. The only slightly inconvenient problem is that, in the course of movie-making, she’s fallen madly in love with the irresistibly adorkable Sahil.
Twinkle soon realizes that resistance is futile: The romance she’s got is not the one she’s scripted. But will it be enough?
Told through the letters Twinkle writes to her favorite female filmmakers, From Twinkle, with Love navigates big truths about friendship, family, and the unexpected places love can find you.

My Review of From Twinkle, With Love:
This book was such a fun read. Written in diary format, this book follows the main character, Twinkle. Twinkle is an Indian-American who aspires to be a filmmaker.
I enjoyed the writing style and it was fun to read the jounral entries of the main character, I felt as if she were personally writing to me. I also enjoyed the secondary cast of characters and thought that it was well written with high-school drama, jelousy and some romance mixed in. The writing style well aware of the characters, thoughts, emotions and feelings.
This story had a lot of key themes that include accepting yourself and staying true to who you really are.
I think the main reason why I enjoyed this book so much is because the characters were written with real problems and the characters are relatable.
There were a few times the storyline and plot didn’t seem to be moving forward, but as a whole, I really enjoyed this book.
If you enjoy young adult contemporary with a little bit of romance then I highly reccomend that you read this book!
Thanks for reading this book review!
