My So-Called Bollywood Life By Nisha Sharma

My So-Called Bollywood Life by Nisha Sharma is a contemporary debut releasing this year. There is nothing more entertaining and interesting than learning about a new culture. The Bollywood aspects of this one just sound like so much fun. It reminds of When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon. Looking forward to reading this one in the spring!

Summary (from Goodreads):

Winnie Mehta was never really convinced that Raj was her soulmate, but their love was written in the stars. Literally, a pundit predicted Winnie would find the love of her life before her 18th birthday, and Raj meets all of the qualifications. Which is why Winnie is shocked to return from her summer at film camp to find her boyfriend of three years hooking up with Jenny Dickens. Worse, Raj is crowned chair of the student film festival, a spot Winnie was counting on for her film school applications. As a self-proclaimed Bollywood expert, Winnie knows this is not how her perfect ending is scripted.

Then there’s Dev, a fellow film geek, and one of the few people Winnie can count on to help her reclaim control of her story. Dev is smart, charming, and challenges Winnie to look beyond her horoscope to find someone she’d pick for herself. But does falling for Dev mean giving up on her prophecy, and her chance to live happily ever after? To get her Bollywood-like life on track, Winnie will need a little bit of help from fate, family, and of course, a Bollywood movie star.

    This is not a book that I would generally pick up. But I am glad that I read the synopsis, because this sounds really good! I am definitely interested in it!

      Ha! I am seeing a lot of K Dramas lately as well. It’s certainly not a new thing, but I think it is something that we are seeing more and more on our side of the world. 🙂
