Sort order. It has been a long time since I have read a book. A week or two. There's something interesting about these writers. The way Akshay Kumar lines up his movies at the period of months consistently, Durjoy Datta and Nikita Singh do not fail to publish a new book every months. Their fans would be the most satisfying fans in this country as they get to read their favorite author every time the It has been a long time since I have read a book. Their fans would be the most satisfying fans in this country as they get to read their favorite author every time they just start missing them.
It is not the way all the books of Durjoy Datta has published. First of all, this book is not by his own venture- Grapevine Publication but by Penguin India. He has just made his brand name more bigger. This book does not have a very shiny cover page like every book of his.
This book is also missing a tag line that every title of his book carries. And the way both the authors have promoted this book is different than the way they do. And as I am done reading this book, they have also changed their writing style by leaps and bounds.
Someone Like You is the story of Niharika Singh. A girl who never thought that she is beautiful until she was in school. She didn't exist for boys and other entities whom every girls want to get an attention from. Then her sister- Simran does a whole make-over which helps Niharika to realize that she is as beautiful as every another girl whom she feels is beautiful than her.
She goes to a totally new city for her college. There she meets 3 different boys- Tanmay, Karthik and Akshat. Tanmay ends up being her best friend. Karthik ends up being a mysterious guy in her life about whom she always remain confused.
Akshat turns out to be her sister- Simran's ex because of which she finds weird to date him. Pia turns out to be her room-mate and lately, she also becomes her only friend in this new campus. Tanmay starts falling for Pia.
Pia also starts liking him in spite of being in a long-distance relationship with Vishal. But, does the book ends with love sagas of all these characters? It has much more in it. At least 10 times more than what I have described above. I can not talk about them as I don't want any spoilers in this review. Do read the book to enjoy one of the best works in this genre of fiction.
Coming to both the authors first, I must say that Durjoy Datta is finally changing his writing style with every book and delivering something which I always wanted from him rather than the same sex saga that he used to write.
His last book "Till the Last Breath" turned out to be one of my favorites and with this one, he has just matured enough. I am just excited for his next book now. As I, myself, blamed him for over-excessive use of sex in his books, his last book didn't have much of it and this one does not have the word itself, as per my memory. I am too happy to witness this change. And as usual the selection and choice of words that the writer implements in his writing is magical. Just for that, he remains to be my favorite.
Coming to Nikita Singh, I didn't like her previous works much but with this one, I can easily say that she has learned quite sooner. I hope she keeps this magic alive and write such character-based stories than sex-related ones.
Both of you have already given that kind of book in bulk to us: I, generally, write the best scenes that I fall in love with while reading a book. But with this book, it's hard for me to categorize some events than others and term only them as my favorites. Right from the first word till the last, I was intrigued in the story like anything. It's good that people trusted this book and just on the pre-ordering basis, it entered the Bestseller's chart at No.
Initially, the way Niharika gives her introduction is lovely. Even Simran is described lovingly. I fell in love with both the sisters initially itself. But this book is not just a love story. It is a purely character-based story where each person has a totally new personality, background, thoughts and approach towards life.
How they end up being in a single plot is what makes a reader like me excited to turn pages. Later, the hospital scene gave me thousands of goosebumps.
The climax is as beautiful and balanced as the whole book is. The entrance of Pia in the book gives a push to the story in the first half. The whole book is perfect. The second half is something I never guessed that the intense level would be such. Someone has said it right- Don't judge a book by its cover page. I would ask all of you to download it and keep it with yourself.
Whenever you feel low, just pick this book up and you would lose all your tension and frustration. But this book also sends a message across that not everyone can be trusted without much experience and reason nor we should blame someone without knowing all the facts-hidden and obvious.
We may never know the gray shades of some, blacks of some and whites of some. I don't know if I should even rate this book but undoubtedly, this is better than most of the book that I have read. I give it 4. Believe me. download it right now. And yes, the only drawback that I can point is, no humor-filled one liners.

So Niharika love the name was not my favorite main character, a little judgmental, and little naive but her heart was in the right place. Akshat, okay if a guy seems that perfect, RUN. Also, their relationship didn't really appeal to me, very insta lovey.

They both made some shitty choices which led to even more shitty consequences. Worked for me. The only thing that bugged me was the over the top drama. Could have lived without it. Other than that, it was a fun and cute read. May 28, Fuzaila rated it it was amazing Shelves: Mirrors remind me of things I am not, things I see other people are and things I would like to be. And also-sadly-things that I can never be. Someone Like You — It seems I have a thing for that phrase.
It is one of my favorite songs, and it is also, undoubtedly one of my favorite books. But sometimes, you just need to sit back, relax, and read a book, just to seek pleasure. Because if you read this book with a cri Mirrors remind me of things I am not, things I see other people are and things I would like to be.
But for once, if you decide to read just for the sheer pleasure of it, to enjoy yourself, to marvel at life, to take yourself on a nostalgic trip, to make you want to cuddle in bed, then — Read this book. It was absolutely adorable yet heartbreaking, and I enjoyed every moment. A week before starting college as a freshman, Niharika Singh visits her sister in Delhi.
She has never been much beauty-conscious, but now that she is going to college, her sister Simran insists on a makeover. With newfound confidence in herself and her looks, Niharika also attracts Akshat Verma , a filthy rich guy, who is ever the gentleman.
His perfect looks and demeanor instantly gets her and they go on a few dates. But this relationship is short-lived as she soon discovers Akshat had dated Simran. Once in college, Niharika meets Tanmay, a cute, nerdy guy and they hit it off instantly. Her roommate Pia also enters the team, and they become an inseparable trio. Niharika finds herself intrigued by him, but she knows better than to go by looks, thanks to Akshat.
The book is written in a simple, lucid prose, which suits the story surprisingly well. Durjoy and Nikita have a great coordination, and you simply cannot NOT notice the way they have blended both their voices as one. The plot is fast-paced, but it did take some time to gear up in the beginning. There is love of all kinds — sibling-love, family-love, friendship, insta-love and a splash of romance.
There is joy and elation. There is heartbreak and grief. And the best part is that the authors make sure you feel them all along with the characters. Also — the characters. I really loved Niharika, the protagonist. I could relate to her on many levels. Some might find her to be flat and blunt, but for me her character was perfectly well-defined. Akshat, Tanmay, Karthik, Simran, Pia — each and every one of them were developed in such a realistic way that I wondered if it was a true story.
But no, it is all fiction — all the more reason to compliment the authors for the great job they did. The climax, even if I was forewarned, even if this was a reread, made me cry — again. The guy is villainy — but not tough. The girl is innocent — but not stupid. Everything is just in the exact place. Overall, if you are looking for a good contemporary read, pick this one next time. The characters were remarkable and will stay with me for life.
Ok this one I picked up because the very same author have penned some heart touching stuff which is a feat if you are an Indian author View all 3 comments. Its Good to read what was written though I feel like an incomplete ending or say it be a sudden ending without proper end.
However the rest story was good but feels nowhere close to what was expected.

My l Its Good to read what was written though I feel like an incomplete ending or say it be a sudden ending without proper end.
My love for football let me in this story for long. Friendship had also been depicted very well. But some where there is some incompleteness about plot created.
Clarity for protagonist in regard of her life shown was almost based on her own intentions rather that perspective of situation that needs to be there.
However, the choice of character to web the Plot was so good to get them fit for story. Learn from mistakes as Simran did , and, let others warn of it which Simran did as well, but with no clarity to get the things get going for her own sister.
Thoroughly, Its 3. This is probably the worst book I have ever read in my entire 18 year old life. Where to start Girl gets a makeover Meets a guy Guy gets obsessed with her. Girl breaks up with him Moves to her college Meets another guy Immediately hates him Guy2 falls in love with her, just like that. Guy1 follows her through state to state. Girl Doesn't not think of guy 1 as a stalker. And goes on a date with him That's it. I can't even write more without wanting to burn that book.
What's wrong with you, nihar This is probably the worst book I have ever read in my entire 18 year old life. What's wrong with you, niharika? Scarlett's story is close to my own with her unexpected pregnancy as a teenager and her struggles.
I even had my own 'Halley' to help me my bf Sara along the way to take care of me, tell me everything was ok, and just to be there. Everyone should have that best friend like the book says.
I loved this story, although I wish there was a better ending. Something to really solidify it so you had This book hit so close to home for me. Something to really solidify it so you had a sense of completeness. I've decided I'm going to get this book for my Sara because I'm sure it will mean just as much to her as it does to me. It was even interesting that Scarlett's baby has the same initials as my baby! View 2 comments. No matter how strong or weak I was, she was a part of me, as crucial as my own heart.
I would never be strong enough, in all my life, to do without her. Sarah Dessen to prove the she has never failed to give me exactly what I want from a contemporary YA read. Reading her books to me feels like going to that one true friend you could always trust and rely on to tell you the right words at the right time, could even make you effortlessly laugh.
She really does. View all 12 comments.

Jan 01, Kelly rated it liked it Shelves: In Someone Like You Scarlett's boyfriend, Micheal dies in a car accident and finds out that she is pregnant while her best friend, Halley is away at summer camp.
Halley and Scarlett have been best friend since they were little, so Halley knows she has to come home to see Scarlett. Halley helps Scarlett along with her pregnancy, putting up with her mood changes and food cravings. Scarlett has always been the more outgoing, independent one out of the pair, but now that Scarlett is going to have In Someone Like You Scarlett's boyfriend, Micheal dies in a car accident and finds out that she is pregnant while her best friend, Halley is away at summer camp.
Scarlett has always been the more outgoing, independent one out of the pair, but now that Scarlett is going to have a baby, Halley has so be the stronger one. In the meantime, Halley falls for Macon Faulkner, Micheal'sbest friend. Macon is a little bit of a rebel, and Halley starts rebelling along with him. Halley and Macon's relationship starts to get sticky later in the book after Macon pressures Halley to do things she doesn't want to do.
After a car accident and Macon not even coming to the hospital to see her, Halley learns she deserves better than that. Dessen is a great writer because she doesn't make Scarlett's pregnancy picture perfect, she shows Scarlett's struggle throughout the nine months.
The reader will learn that being pregnant is not always a bad thing, but you should never get pressured to do something that you don't want to do.
I enjoyed this book besides the ending where it seemed unresolved. View all 3 comments. Nov 25, emma rated it it was ok Shelves: A take on teen pregnancy ladies and gentlemen!!! With all the girl hate and slut shaming you'd expect everywhere you wouldn't expect it.
This book was weird. Only 2 books to go in the Sarah Dessen Reread Extravaganza!! I am a superhero. Bottom line: Jun 25, Christina rated it really liked it.
Life is an ugly, awful place to not have a best friend. This is my 2nd Sarah Dessen novel. The novel opens up with our MC, Halley being dragged out of bed in the night while away at camp for a phone call.
On the phone is her best friend, Scarlett. Scarlett tells Halley that their friend Michael has been in an accident and he died She asks Halley to come home.
Halley calls her mom to pick her up early and 3. Halley calls her mom to pick her up early and her mom is NOT happy about this. Scarlett has always been the stronger, braver and more outgoing one, with Halley kind of just along for the ride, still trying to figure out who she is. When I pictured myself, it was always like just an outline in a coloring book, with the inside not yet completed.
All the standard features were there. But the colors, the zigzags and plaids, the bits and pieces that made me up, Halley, weren't yet in place. Scarlett's vibrant reds and golds helped some but I was still waiting. A few days later, right before the funeral, Halley meets Macon , who was Michael's best friend. He seems like your typical teenage bad boy. Shortly after the funeral, summer ends and they return to high school for their junior year.
Halley and Scarlett also have their part time jobs at Milton's Market as cashier's. Things are slowly returning to normal. Then Macon starts showing some attention to Halley. They have third period gym together and Halley starts to really look forward to that bit of her day when she can see Macon and is disappointed on the days that he doesn't manage to make it to class. About that same time, Scarlett finds out that she is pregnant with Michael's baby.
Her mom, Marion, is hugely disappointed though it's worth saying that Marion isn't exactly a great maternal example for most of this book and demands that Scarlett have an abortion. She sets up the appointment and drives Scarlett to the clinic.
But Scarlett can't go through with it and she makes the tough decision to keep the baby. The novel takes us through Scarlett's pregnancy, and I liked that Dessen gave a realistic view of it, how hard it can be, especially as a teenager. Now it's Halleys turn to be the stronger of the two as Scarlett depends on her more and more. Halley essentially fills the roles of both the best friend and the absent baby daddy, dealing with Scarlett's epic mood swings, accompanying her to doctor appointments and making runs for food cravings.
But Halley is also going through some changes of her own, mainly due to her growing relationship with Macon.
He continues to skip school and party a lot and slowly Halley begins rebeling like him and withdrawing from her parents especially her mother more. She and her mother were always very close, so this new distance puts a lot of tension in the household. I really disliked Macon but what I did like was that Dessen showed how a relationship can be the problem, not the answer. After a few months of being a couple, Macon starts to put pressure on Halley to do things that she's not yet comfortable with and as she keeps declining him, he starts to withdraw from the relationship, which scares Halley, because she doesn't want to lose him.
I did like that in the end, Halley makes the right decisions. She's resentful that her mother has been telling her all along that Macon's bad news and I think that this kind of maybe pushed Halley closer to Macon for a bit.
She just had to come to the realization on her own through her own experiences. One of my main complaints about this novel is probably that Michael's death is a bit glossed over, which just didn't seem realistic when compared to the rest of the book.
It was said in the beginning that he was popular and his accident really was a tragedy, he was only But there was really no grieving done, by anyone really. Everyone seemed pretty unaffected by it aside from Scarlett occasionally making remarks that she missed him or wondering how things would have been different had he been there for the pregnancy.
I actually would've loved for this book to be written in dual POVs so that I could've been in Scarlett's head for this too. She was my favorite character by far. So not a bad book. A quick, easy read. View all 8 comments. I wasn't really feeling this book. It was semi-similar to Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson in the sense that there is a introverted and shy main character who has always been outshined by her outgoing best friend and finds her confidence throughout.
I wish I was re-reading that book. I love many of Sarah Dessen's books and bought this one five years ago because of that back in the days when BookTube wasn't a thing and I had limited knowledge of other authors , but I never really felt the urge to pick this one up hence the reason it was last on my TBR list. As for the book, I didn't really like or connect to any of the characters and Macon was my absolute least favorite.
I also felt like this book dragged even though it was less than pages long. Jul 24, M rated it liked it. Initially it was a solid 2 stars, eventually reaching 4 and settling on 3. I was surprised by it because initially it seemed so incredibly dumb. The novel opens with Halley getting a phone call that her bff's boyfriend has been killed in an accident.
Now, this is high drama. But does anyone seem fazed? Mmm, not really. Scarlett, the bff in question, is washing dishes while she relays the news to Halley, and Halley's mom seems pretty chilled about it, not even wanting 3.
Scarlett, the bff in question, is washing dishes while she relays the news to Halley, and Halley's mom seems pretty chilled about it, not even wanting to pick up Halley from camp for, hello, the funeral?? Let alone comforting the bff.
Halley does get back from camp, with the mom NOT being happy about it, and you have Halley's mom cooking up French toast and Scarlett's mom Marion happy and smiling. The fact that a sixteen year old child has died certainly didn't impact the community the way one would think.
There is no memorial at school, no statue, no nothing. That was the first oddity, leading me to assume this bizaare almost Camus-like work could not end well. Another thing was Halley's relationship with her mom. The mom seems cast as this evil villain because she resents her daughter's growing distance and experimenting with alchohol and boys. Dessen loves showing how her pretty yet introverted teens can find themselves always with the help of a boy - thanks, Dessen and here seemed to be another case where the teen must know best and the parent must be a loser.
However, the book took a turn almost immediately when it became clear that Dessen's formula was changing. It was. Macon, while being charming and dizzying and unpredictable, cuts class, parties, and shows himself to be pretty inconsiderate.
He drives recklessly, laughs off Halley's curfew, and soon begins to pressure her to go further than she would like. I really appreciated this refreshing twist, as Halley's interest in Macon was played out nicely - he wasn't a total scumbag that had the reader scratching her head, nor was he inconsistent. In addition, Dessen does a nice job showing how relationships shift and change as the physical end becomes more and more of an issue, and the pressure a girl can feel to comply.
In the meantime, Halley's bff discovers she is pregnant with her dead boyfriend's baby, and while I did not feel this was handled realistically at all, it did paint a nice backdrop to the pressure Halley was under. Halley's mom is ultimately seen as more complex, because her warnings ring true even if she does show herself to be overly controlling.
I appreciated the distancing of their relationship as I feel that is a true to life portrayal of how teens shy away from parents mistaking them as withholders of independence rather than sources of guidance. There were some inconsistencies that bothered me - like, everyone has a cell phone yet no one seems able to use it when it counts. Macon has to call the landline at Halley can't ever communicate effectively with anyone because there is no phone nearby?
It's not like they didn't know this was coming. Anyway, all things considered while there was much room for improvement, I was just so happy to see a book where the white knight does not come save the princess, in fact he gets her in serious trouble several times and she still finds herself wanting him, which sounds a whole lot more like life to me.

While Someone Like You is a likable, heart-warming story, it lacks the strong emotions and pitch-perfect writing of Dessen's later books. One thing I would have loved was if this book was written in the perspective of a different character, namely Cameron or Scarlet. The story seems to revolve around Scarlet as opposed to Halley, so seeing her thoughts at certain points of the 3. The story seems to revolve around Scarlet as opposed to Halley, so seeing her thoughts at certain points of the novel would have been interesting.
Cameron's character is also splendid - the outcast arriving at a new school who strikes up a somewhat relationship with a girl who is pregnant and carrying the baby of her deceased boyfriend. Halley, however, seemed a bit flat. I liked how she learned about life through her rocky relationships with her mother and Macon, but in the end I still hadn't fully connected with her. It might be that Dessen tried to tackle too many sensitive subjects at once - the mother and daughter bond, the selfish boyfriend, and the pregnant best friend - and simply did not manage to make it all tie back together like she usually does.
Overall, this was a refreshing, touching book by Sarah Dessen. I expected a bit more due to her splendid stories such as The Truth About Forever and Just Listen , but it's unfair to hold her accountable for books she published after this one. Read this if you don't have anything else you're dying to read. Want to read more of my reviews? Follow me here.

It did seem to feel like it was dragging throughout some parts of it.. The story is about Halley, who is a 16 year old girl, currently discovering herself. Then there's Scarlett, her best friend, who just found out she is pregnant..

Halley leaves the summer camp she is at so that she can be at Scarlett's side while she is dealing with everything being thrown at her.
Then to top it all of, there's a new guy in town, Macon, who was such a drag. God, I hated his character so much. Something drastic happens because Macon pressures Halley to do things throughout the book and then there's a car accident and Macon doesn't come to see her or anything. Yeah, he annoyed me. Halley was annoying me throughout the book too. Overall, it was an okay book. I will never reread it again. The dynamic here was occasionally disquieting and yet kind of familiar.
Although this is not my favourite of her books, bravo to Dessen for choosing to portray a teen relationship so honestly and openly. View all 13 comments.

I really couldn't figure that out, I just let that be and went with whatever way the story was structured and read it as a slice of life giving me a lot of lessons while at it.
You know how they say- learn from other's mistakes So there is that. I didn't really like the way Macon's character was developed, I really liked him in the beginning and I wanted Halley to get closure and also a relationship she deserves.
I wish the book focused on one thing and the other things were rather in the background to add layers to the story. I found this book really hard to rate. Although I only rated it a two and a half stars, there were parts that proceeded this rating while other times, it flopped. Someone Like You still have not figured out the connection between the title and the story - help a girl out is about the life of Halley and her best friend Scarlett.

While away at summer camp, Halley receives a phonecall from her childhood best friend Scarlett telling her that her boyfriend, Michael, was killed in a motorcycle accident.
Halley rushed home right away to console Scarlett and later finds out that she is pregnant with his child. This book follows the girls as they face love and loss, growth and courage, friendship and family.
Yes, this book had more mature themes, like teenage pregnancy but I feel that her characters are too juvenile. I found the characters flat. Halley seemed to have a bitter distaste for every girl besides Scarlett - you know how hard it is to get along with the whole nasally-voiced-cheerleading-bimbo personality.
I will say, however, that I liked the strong ties of friendship between the main characters. We get to see their friendship mature as they face new challenges and grow together. To me, the most development we got from the plot was between Halley and her mother. Overall, a decent summer read. Obviously this book was written ages ago and from my recent experience, she has greatly improved on her characters and plots. View all 16 comments.

May 20, Julie Zantopoulos rated it it was ok Shelves: Maybe I've read too much contemporary this month and they're all starting to blur together or I'm getting annoyed by the common themes, but just, no. I was angered by the father's passivity and I was even further angered by a mother who was supposed to be a "professional" in the field of child psychology screwing up SO badly at simple communication. I don't ever download the good girl turns rebel without a little more reasoning Maybe I've read too much contemporary this month and they're all starting to blur together or I'm getting annoyed by the common themes, but just, no.
I don't ever download the good girl turns rebel without a little more reasoning and I also don't think that her friend was given enough depth. The girl's 16 and pregnant with a dead kids baby and we never really get to know her, which makes her whole situation seem like a plot device and angered me.
The characters are so surface. We never get to understand the love interest and his backstory. We sit and watch this girl fall 'in love' while ignoring these glaring problems with the guy and I don't think she'd be quite that naive. She's poorly treated and allows it without questioning until there's very questionable and dangerous situations and then never truly holds him accountable for them.
I don't want to start jumping on the 'problematic' theme bandwagon here, and I know it wasn't supposed to look like a healthy relationship--but not a single relationship in this book was healthy. I was pretty underwhelmed by this book. I expected this book to be so much better In the end, I gave this book 2 stars because I hated so many stuff that happened. I finished this book hoping there will be a conclusion to everything, but the ending left me hung up.
She was a very balanced character, and I liked how she dealt with her pregnancy, and how she was different. If this book was written in Scarlet's POV then I think I would've liked it better because her story was much more important than Halley.
Dislikes I expected this book to be so much better I felt like she was very immature, and didn't know what was best for her. I hated her personality and how she did all that just for a boy who didn't even seem like he cared enough. I didn't like the way she treated her mom as if she was her enemy, and never saw the good in her moms actions.
