All right, no wrong (Book Review: Rightfully Wrong Wrongfully Right by Varsha Dixit)


Title: Rightfully Wrong Wrongfully Right
Author: Varsha Dixit
Genre: Contemporary Romance

The cover of Rightfully Wrong Wrongfully Right is really good - the stance of both Gayatri and Viraj perfectly depicts their characters in the book, the cupcake, and the bling... as I said, really good.

Just as with the title of the book, the author, Varsha Dixit has maintained her trend of having distinctive titles to the chapters.
I found the chapter titles in this book a little less 'desi' but just as interesting.
And as before, I cannot resist mentioning a few really good ones - Country wants to Know, Hyde Turns Jekyll, Hot Dreams and Cold Beer.

Love the quirkiness of Viraj's character - the fact that he chooses to act all nerdy to look like a 'normal' mad scientist, the sparrows that he spends time with, and his wierd beliefs too.

"When I feel there is no more to achieve, no more to know, no more to give, I would rather switch the lights off. It might be interesting to find out if there is something beyond death."
I so don't agree with that. Yet I couldn't help appreciating the analysis behind this thought and admiring the way the author has worded this.

When Gayatri was first introduced in Right Fit Wrong Shoe, and later when we, the readers got to know her a little better in Wrong Means Right End, I could not have imagined being fond of her.

Through Rightfully Wrong Wrongfully Right, the author introduces us to the 'real' Gayatri. That is, we get to know her better and thus understand why she did all that she did in the previous two books.

I think this is a good time to say that this book would continue to be a really exciting read without having read the previous two. I did choose to read them, though...

Back to Gayatri, despite her emotional issues, she is a badass heroine.

Gayatri and Viraj are fun to read about, with an almost constant smile on the readers' lips.

The couples from the two previous books of 'Right and Wrong Series' form an important part of the plot of this book. As I wrote while reviewing the second book too, the author has made the couples from previous books an important part in the next one. Usually in the case of such sequels, the characters from the previous books just make a fleeting appearance.

The 'Right and Wrong series' has evolved, and evolved well.

This love story of the 'Poor rich girl' and the 'successful poor boy' has many special elements.
Gayatri is not your typical leading lady, just as Viraj is unlike the male counterpart. 

The tussles between the two are a pleasure to read. They are once described as 'Two opponents inside a boxing ring'. Such opposition combined with hot attraction is sure to be readers' delight.
Add to it a love triangle, well-meaning nosy friends, some family drama, and can you ask for anything better. 

This book has the balance of a light romance but with the depth of many other relationships.

For lovers of romance, Rightfully Wrong Wrongfully Right, in my opinion, is a must read.

You have help (Nancy Diedrich's Whenever a Child is Born)

  Title: Whenever a Child is Born Author: Nancy Diedrich Genre: Children's Picture Book (Ages 3-7) Pages: 30 Publisher: WestBow Press Release date: July 2017 *  *  * My Review What do you expect when you choose a children's book? Pictures that beckon, words that engage, and rhymes that you sing together with your kid. Nancy Diedrich's Whenever a Child is Born has all this and more. As a parent, I like this book not only because of how it would fascinate a child, but also because it would resonate with the parents too. In a subtle, unobvious way, this book allays your fears (and this applies to both the children and the parents) even as you enjoy the words that celebrate the birth of a new child. In 30 pages, you experience the reactions of animals and birds, and nature and heaven welcoming your little one. My kids are kind of grown up now, but as a parent, I still felt good having read it. As I read out a couple of couplets to my kid (always a kid for me, as I keep t
