Glitter and Gloss Book Review


Misha is a makeup artist who, after a series of mishaps and twists and turns, falls madly in love with Akshay who reciprocates her love with ardour. The only hitch in this perfect romance is her prospective sister-in-law who thinks Misha is everything a Bahu shouldn’t be: garrulous, geeky, gawky, gainfully employed (especially the last bit). The questions are will Misha win Didi (and the Kha-Pee Panchayat) over with her Stepford Wife Act? Will she continue to be the poster child for the inherent evils of the Bahu Brigade? Or will she learn to ‘lau’ herself before the whole world and its wife can do the same?

My Review

Thanks author for the review copy. The book is a romcom. The book was like I am reading bollywood dramatic movie.The book is a light read.Misha worked in a M.A.C depatment.The book rather seemed like an ad for M.A.C.,names of each and every product they used was metioned. Misha worked with Poulomi, her best friend. The potrayal of their frienship was not good.Misha’s charachter was displayed very well. The circumstances she had to face through and the decisions taken by her were described well. The book contains light comedy. The book contains how Akshay’s elder sister and Misha are trying to accept each other while they both have different worlds. Misha is trying to be a ”good” bahu of Aggarwal family while trying to manage everything at work while didi (Akshay’s elder sister) had different opinion.


MY RATING- 3.5/5
