Mini-Reviews: Dating Dr. Dil by Nisha Sharma, Three Mages and a Margarita by Annette Marie, & The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot by Marrianne Cronin!

Time has gotten away from me and I’m so behind on reviews. So here are some mini-reviews for you! I find this more satisfying than doing no reviews at all.

This was such a fun book!! Was it predictable? Absolutely but I enjoyed the ride. This is your typical enemies to lovers book, which is my favorite trope. There’s a lot of family drama and honestly, it was kind of sad how they treated Kareena. Kareena is faced with a decision to marry or lose her mother’s house, which she thought she would one day have. This starts her on a dating journey but then Dr. Prem Verma kind of gets in the way. There are a lot of things that Kareena is very stubborn about and I guess it’s to keep the plot going. It was just a bit annoying that she kept the dating going for so long. I really enjoyed the message chains with all the potential dates. Girls, it’s so hard out there and I feel for you. There’s something that REALLY drove me crazy, in a bad way, and it’s Prem Verma referring to his p*n*s as “charlie.” Guys… nooooo. It’s not cute and it’s insanely weird. It comes up a lot and he talks to it like it’s an actual person. It would have probably been a higher-rated book if not for that. Overall, it was a fun and quick read.

I do not remember who recommended this as part of my 12 for 12 this year. Tori is pretty much a hot mess. She’s constantly getting fired from jobs because of her temper. Desperate for a job, she interviews at a bar, she shouldn’t have been able to enter. It’s kind of funny seeing all the obvious clues that are completely missed by Tori. The three mages are a bit of a mystery to me. I’m not sure if Annette Marie is going to have her involved with all of them but it seems that way. I did think it was fun and fast-paced. It was just what I needed to break up some of my bigger fantasy books. I would have never picked this up on my own and I’m so glad that it was a recommendation! I do plan on continuing the series. 🙂

Okay, if you pick this up then have the tissues ready. This is the comment I received all the time about this book. This is a book that I pre-ordered but hadn’t picked up, until now. I knew I had to be in the right mindset for this one. It was surprisingly a fast read, even with the tough content. The emotions in this book are intense! Lenni and Margot meet in the terminal ward. Lenni is a teenager and pretty much questions “why,” about everything. Her friendship with Margot is so heartwarming. They end up doing a project together, for the one hundred years of their lives. We get stories about moments from each of their years. I loved the flashbacks and learning about each of their stories. I won’t get spoiler-y but Lenni’s story just broke my heart. The author did a great job of breaking up some of the intensity with humor. I loved Lenni so much and I think you would too! This is a great read that will have you feeling all kinds of emotions but worth it. I’m surprised I don’t see this book everywhere.

  1. Great mini-reviews, Leslie! Maybe it’s immature of me but I’m still cackling over “Charlie”! 🤣 It’s a no for me (but I’ma still read the book)! Lenni and Margot sound like wonderful characters and this sounds like a great heartfelt and super emotional read. I have to be in the right mood for those books but I do love it when it can hit all the feels.

    • Thank you, Dini! ❤ No, definitely not immature. It was just weirdly awkward. haha! I mean, you can name it what you want but don't need to have convos with it. Just saying. hahaha! Yes! You definitely have to be in the right mood. I pre-ordered it LAST year but never could get myself to pick it up!
