"Meet Sri Anuprabha, aka Anu, a twenty-nine year-old banker who is terrified of entering her thirties. She dreams of quitting her job at the bank, sporting yoga pants and traipsing around the world. Her world turns upside down when things go awry and she is faced with the prospect of spending her days watching Tamil serials. She comes up with a five-point plan for reclaiming her life back before she hits the big 30.

 
But things are never as simple as drawing up a flowchart in real life, are they? Especially with a ghastly recession rearing its ugly head. Anu bumbles through the corridors of domesticity and travels on a fun-filled roller coaster ride in a bid to discover her passion in life. Along the way, she meets new people, experiences crazy things and learns some hard lessons in marriage, friendship, parenting and life."

Me thinks

Off late I have been getting some very heavy books for review and reading. Owing to my health I didn’t want to take any such undue pressure and was looking for something really light and breezy when I came across this book. The author had approached me after reading my blog to read this and the blurb was definitely an eye grabber for sure.

What I loved the most about this chicklit if I had to tell in one word then it would be it’s simplicity in terms of the narrative ; which left a lot of ease for the reader to do nothing else but just enjoy the story as the character Anu goes through her own share of ups and downs in life.

Completely relatable and I could really find myself nodding to many of those things there as Anu was observing LIFE just the way we do at times and wonder if LIFE is seriously making us go through all this!

An out and out highly recommended read, for all beautiful women out there who need a good laugh at their own lives and also feel good that they are not alone in this never ending battle called LIFE.

Foodie Verdict

 This book is like flavoured popcorn - utterly delicious!
