Hi people. How are you?? How are life and family?? I am back again with a book review😍. This is a book that made me feel so many emotions. I am doing quite a lot of things and it’s so fun. I will try to blog as much as I can and I hope you all are enjoying my blogs. So let’s start this review, shall we???

Madhurima Pandey is twenty-five, single, and gradually coming to terms with the annoying ‘you’re next’ nudges from family and friends. But soon they realize that chances of finding a groom for her are slim-mainly because she’s not. At 93 kilos, she knows she isn’t the ideal weight for marriage, even if her family believes she’s the ideal age.
Despite her reservations, the hunt begins, and so does a spree of rejections until Harsh comes along. Madhu cannot believe that a boy with no obvious flaws has agreed to marry her. Low self-esteem makes her suspect he’s either impotent or a homosexual, but she doesn’t turn down the proposal immediately.
A negligible period of courtship and a hurried engagement follow. But does Madhurima really find her happily-ever-after? Or are there more surprises in store?
Jovial, witty and unapologetically honest, Madhurima Pandey’s story of struggle and survival in the run-up to her D-Day gives you a refreshingly new take on the big fat Indian wedding.
Amazon: 💙4.5/5 Stars💙.

This book stole my heart. It talks about how a fat girl feels when she is about to get married and is getting chosen by a groom. The way people have a stereotype that fat girls are not good for their sons. Those aunties who get fat after getting married have a problem with bringing a fat girl into their family and the reason…she is not healthy?? Then why call them healthy girls??? The stereotype that a fat girl is not good to get married makes me wonder why is it okay if a woman gets fat after marriage (it is said that the husband and family’s love made her fat) but before marriage, it’s not good, why? We should only get fat with love from our inlaws, our own parents’ love is not good for us??
This book portrays the entire scenario so well and the pain of constant rejection a fat girl goes through is so hard to bear. I like being fat because I want people to accept me the way I am. When people tell me to get thin so that I can get married, my comeback is:
“After marriage, I have to get fat with my inlaws loves na, so I should also show them that my family loves me too that’s why I am fat, the more fat I grow, the more family love is portrayed so let me stay fat. My inlaws shouldn’t think na, that I am not loved by anyone,”
This is what my family and relatives think so if your family has a different mentality, translate this entire thing that way. For comebacks and fat sarcasm, you can dm me. I have a big stomach and it’s full of it.
If you feel the review didn’t tell you how the book was, restart from the top again.
So that’s it for people, I am coming up with some new blog ideas, so let’s see what I post first. Hope to see you all healthy and happy. Until then…
