Book Review:

It Must've Been Something He Wrote by Nikita Deshpande is the story of the funny and yet totally relatable daily struggles of a common Indian girl, Amruta who is a book lover cum marketing executive for a Publishing house in Delhi. With a demanding boss, quirky but loyal friends, overbearing and yet caring relatives and a new assignment as the publicist for a cheesy romance writer, Ruta's life is complicated to say the least. Add being struck by the love arrow to this chaotic mix, this story tickles and connects with the readers.
After all what can you do when the love arrow strikes you, even when it is with someone so different from you!

This review has taken almost two years to get written not because this book is boring but because Njkinny loved it so much she kept returning to it again and again!

The cover is so beautiful!
I got attracted towards this book because of the cover that has a girl reading a book with beautiful cartoon depictions that will relate to all book lovers. Add the quirky, unusual title to this alluring cover and I just had to stop to checkout this book.

The blurb is interesting and gives a teasing sneak peak that will intrigue and captivate readers.

Full of comic moments that are so ordinary in their every day occurrence in almost all of our lives that everyone will relate to them, the author has expertly observed, collected and then beautifully woven these mundane occurrences that we don't even notice to make this book a must buy.

The character development is also very admirably done and I loved almost all the people in this book, all the while wishing they were real so I could meet them!

The plot is simple and you will guess the upcoming developments as the story progresses but still the narration outshines this predictability and I stayed engrossed in the book, all the while laughing, chuckling, loyally nodding my head at scenes that felt as if they were taken out of my own life and enjoying each second spent reading the book.

The only other thing that I felt should be included in this book is a glossary for the Hindi words used.

Kudos to the author. Nikita, you are my namesake and have really given me goals as an aspiring writer. I hope to read lots more from you in the future and wish you the very best.

All in all, It Must've Been Something He Wrote by Nikita Deshpande is a beautifully written rom com that connects, endears and entertains throughout. A book that will make you return to it again and again whenever you are feeling down, I give it 5 super shiny stars out of 5 and Njkinny recommends it to everyone looking for a light, funny, entertaining story that is believable and unique unlike the mushy, over-the-top love stories in the market.
