Hello people. How are you all doing??? Is your health okay??? I am sorry I am spamming you all with reviews😂😂😂. I have a lot pending and I am also busy with exams so posting reviews is easier than posting long blogs as I have to study. I am also trying to be consistent in posting but yeah that’s getting harder every day but I won’t get give up so soon. So on this hard-working and courageous note, let’s start this review, shall we???
I have to apologize to this author too for the extreme delay in the review of this book. Due to the death of my aunt and sister, my mental peace was disturbed and it still is so I couldn’t post it soon but now that it’s here. I hope you all including the author like it. Let’s check it out, people.

Cocktail is a compilation of four inspiring stories where the protagonists are dynamic, courageous, and freethinkers. The purpose of this book is to make the readers travel through a journey of self-realization. The main characters of these stories pursue unconventional career goals. Their conviction, individuality, and vision have made them legendary in their own rights. Their predicaments have been depicted through their stories – discomfort in their work lives, turmoil in their personal relationships, struggles of building educational and vocational setups in their villages. This book aspires to motivate us to think beyond “peer pressure” and live a life of our own choices. How these characters guide their lives through obstacles and societal stigmas will be an endorsement of their never say die attitude. Cocktail occupies a special place in my heart. I hope this book helps you find your inner self.

I am highly impressed with this book. This book consists of 4 short stories. All the stories are so fascinating and they all have a great moral lesson in the end that all teens and adults need in their daily life. My favorite was Warmth Of The Lap. All the characters are vibrant, heroic, and bold. The author shows us the discomfort the characters face in their work lives, the chaos in their intimate relationships, the struggles of building academic and professional lives in their villages and we get to follow them on this journey of self-realization.
This book had so many good short stories that weren’t so short but weren’t too big either. I loved how all the characters were nicely written and given proper attention. I could relate to so many of the short stories that for a moment I felt connected to the characters.
The writing style is really clean and lucid. The author showed that she does know how to play with words but somehow I felt like she overdid it in some places. Some points felt rushed and I couldn’t understand what was going on in some pages due to which I kept losing interest in reading but the concept of short stories describing 4 people’s lives full of problems and how they solve them is the best.
This is the author’s debut novel and I will be honest I want her to bring out her next book soon. India needs authors like her that can express themselves so clearly.
Overall this book was mind-blowing. I loved the writing style and the conceptualization. I would recommend it to readers who want a nice and fresh short read.
So that’s it for today. I hope you loved this review. I will be back soon with one more review and hope you all are safe and sound. Take care and see you soon, until then…
