It feels like I’m on autopilot; I have no control over anything. The pain of losing you is so crippling that I can barely hold pieces of myself together. The slightest nudge could break me. But somehow, my possessed brain knows what I need. It’s telling me to stick to my choice, to stay away from you, to open a word document and bleed on paper, try to throw up all my jumbled thoughts in form of words, collect all disconnected facts, try to make sense of it all.’

From the bestselling author of Like a Love Song and Every Time It Rains, a story of heartbreak and things left unsaid..

I have read each and every book of Nikita Singh and  ‘Every time it rains’ is my favourite read. I was so excited to read this book. Its a short book with 138 pages. One can finish it within few hours. The book revolves around Nidhi and Abhya. Nidhi who broke her engagement with Abhay writes letters to her EX. Their love for years was finished when Nidhi called off her engagement.

The title and cover of the book are catchy and attractive. I had high expectations from the book.
The plot of the story is in form of letters. The letters that Nidhi writes to Abhay. In between they exchange emails. The plot is repetitive by the author. In the first chapter, it was becoming hard for me to connect with the book. There is no in-depth narration, nor it was catchy. The pace of the story is too slow. The tempo of the book is also dull. The narration of the story is good, but it was not as convincing as her other books. The language used by the author is simple, interesting and easy. The story goes smoothly but not a structured one. The characters that author made are really strong. One will fall in love with Abhay’s character. A smart, Matured character. I didn’t like Nidhi’s character. It was much like a childish character. A lost one. There were some things which are missing in the story. It was like an incomplete story. The ending was sudden and unexpected. But again, I love reading Nikita Singh. her book Every time it rains is my favourite read always!

Well, overall it’s a simple and good read if you like to read repetitive things. Overall it was a good read.
