Mistakes Like Love and Sex”Mistakes Like Love and Sex” by Madhuri Banerjee is the continuation of the ”Loosing my Virginity and Other Dumb Ideas”. Books by this author has got catchy title, may be that is the reason why I bought them. Once in a while I have this strong desire to read books by Indian authors that is why I have piled up my shelf with many books. To tell the truth I didn’t enjoy the first book as much as I did the second. I remember giving it 2 stars out of 5. But an incomplete story is not fun, so I picked up the sequel and I am happy that it didn’t disappoint me.

After serious heart breaking and many failed relations our protagonist Kaveri is back, but this time she is with a handsome Spanish boyfriend  and a lovely job in far away country. But nothing lasts forever, soon she goes through difficult breakup and she is back in India, searching for a good career and her dream man. But as usual Kaveri is Kaveri! she gets into a hot mess with a rich- older man,has hot sex with a Bollywood superstar and works as a Hindi teacher for an upcoming actress. One thing leads to another and she is standing where she was in the beginning, nothing is changed. But when she enters the world of Twitter may be she is at the right direction!

I liked this book better than the first one so my rating: 4 out of 5. I really enjoyed reading this book there were lot of twists and it was never boring.

Loosing my Virginity and other dumb ideasLooking at the fancy title and attractive cover page I decided to buy this book. Some of the of the books by Indian authors are not available in UAE, so 2 months back when I went to India for a vacation  I tried to get as many books as possible. And ended up buying 2 books from this same author by mistake.

Kaveri the protagonist of the novel is turning thirty but she is still a virgin. So far she never had a steady relationship or one night stand. She has been waiting for a right person to come, fall in love and then get married to him. But one fine day she realizes that it was a big mistake to wait and she wants to loose her virginity. With the help of her friend Aditi she finds suitable men and goes out with them for dates but likes none. After few unsuccessful dates she finds this intellectual, Greek god like man and falls for him and looses her virginity. But this Greek god is already married! Now her task is to find what she really wants from her life.

This book has  lot of twists and good humor. In few places you might find Kaveri’s character very silly. But then it is a chick lit what else to expect? It is a good time pass read. My rating: 2 out of 5. 1 star for Humor and one for fancy title.
