Review: Something I Never Told You



Something I Never Told You by Shravya Bhinder
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book Blurb : 
When in love, you tend to take each other for granted, and sometimes, that can cost you a lifetime of togetherness . . .
Ronnie knew that his first crush was way out of his league, and yet he pursued and wooed Adira. Shyly and from a distance in the beginning, and more persuasively later. He couldn't believe it when the beautiful Adira actually began to reciprocate, falling in love with him for his simplicity and honesty.

Slowly, as they get close and comfortable with each other, life takes on another hue. From truly magical it becomes routine. There are fights and then making-up sessions-a clash of egos and doubts.

Things begin to change for the worst.

It is too late.
Ronnie and Adira will probably never find their forever after . . .

This book was just gifted for a reading purpose. Hence, A review wasn't something asked for but, usually I try to give a review for most books I read hence here it is. Since I was looking for some romance reads recently and this one was present, you can say on a right place at a right time. I decided to give it a chance. The cover instantly attracted me and the blurb told an seemingly interesting story.

Initially, I thought there would be more to the story than the blurb, but the truth is that blurb is more of a summary of the book. So, if you plan to read this book then avoid the blurb to keep your interest in the reading it completely. If you are trying to find to something new in the story which isn't revealed in the blurb then you are looking at the wrong book.

The story is simple, quite realistic ( it also claims to be based on a true story ), as well as different storyline than I usually would have imagined. I would have surely DNF-ed this book if narration wasn't thing gripping me to the story. I'd admit, that I cheated and looked at the end chapters first to see if the book was even worth continuing or not. But as I finished the book, I realised something. This book isn't something to discover new in the plot or read an entertaining story. It's more like a delicate work of art which needs to be discovered.

The story begins with the male lead character assumingly telling his own love story or you can say writing it down. Let me remind you, if you are someone who isn't familiar with love stories and sappy ones especially which have deep sad endings then this one isn't for you. Personally, I love to read more on the sweet bubbly romance stories but here this one had something which caught my interest.

The story is in multiple layers. It can be a hassle to remember all the dates and how the story is been jumbled up with random memories suddenly popping up without realisation but its overall done very smoothly. Although, I'd much appreciate it if there was something which clarified the memory part within the story which is running in past, anything which could have given a clear distinction would've been great.

Again, the story is totally what you can read on the blurb, if still it interests you then you can surely grab it and read. The narration is really smooth and something I'd love to read more. The Author mentions 'Ravinder Singh' as her mentor for this book and I can clearly see his signs of mentoring in this work. I have read books from Ravinder in past and both are in my forever favourites. I'd love to give a spoiler here but that'd break my record of posting spoiler free reviews. Yet, I gave off a huge hint here.

Long story short, if you love reading romances, sappy ones, which have not so cliche good endings then this one is strongly recommended.
