#WattpadWednesday – An Interview with Aanchal Budhiraja aka TooHotToBeTrue2

1459257251490

An Interview with Aanchal Budhiraja aka TooHotToBeTrue2 on Wattpad

(Of the Baking With Boys fame)

Okay, so I’ll start by saying that this is my first interview, ever (where I’ve been the interviewer, of course. There’ve been a shit ton of interviewee interviews in my life. We can thank my need for a job for that one.)

Any how, we’re getting off topic. This is my first interview and Aanchal is a dear friend of mine. So, if we’re absolutely, ridiculously unprofessional or we talk absolute shit, please forgive me. You’ve been warned.

Time to start!

I think this is the part where I introduce the guest for today/tonight/whatever time you’re reading this on.

And that person is Aanchal Budhiraja! A 20 year old college student, pursuing her masters in economics, Aanchal loves to write quirky stories about love, friendship and adventure, always leaving us wanting more with the abhorrent cliffhanger endings for each chapter. She loves to dye her hair in awesome colors and works out at odd hours of the day (seriously. Odd hours. She works out at midnight. So, you can say she is obsessed.)

She’s best known for her stories Baking With Boys and The Demon Babysitter.

Now that we know who we’re meeting today, let’s get started!

#WattpadWednesday (Hidden Gems) – A Marriage of Convenience, Salonika Vale

So, another Wednesday, another Wattpad story!

Are you guys excited?

Today, we’re talking about a Marriage of Convenience by Salonika Vale.

 

1459165497497

55964175-176-k925102When Charlotte Wright, soon-to-be-broke creator of the Charlotte’s Web dating service, agrees to marry Wolfram van der Waals, she convinces herself it has all to do with her benefit and not his. After all, a life of luxury and enough cash to keep her livelihood from sinking?

It has nothing to do with payback for his insults five years ago at the very fateful Christmas she spent with his family. It has nothing to do with his very cute, very available younger brother. And it absolutely has nothing to do with her own feelings for the man himself.

She was once told that nice guys finish last – but nice girls get what they want.

1459165556078

This is an amazing story! Not your average billionaire falls for middle class girl. They have a connection that is deeper than that. They have history. And there’s a lot of emotions that have been explored in their quasi relationship. They haven’t even started dating yet (this is an ongoing story on Wattpad) and still, everything that has happened is absolutely scintillating and gorgeous. I love this!

This is the story of Wolfram Van der Wells and Charlotte Wright, two people who could not have been more unlike each other if they tried. They’ve had different upbringings, follow different ideals and have completely different morals, which is why they tend to clash on a lot of fronts. But, that’s what makes their story amazing.

The characters are amazingly written and their development throughout the plot is something that is exceedingly phenomenal. It’s really awesome, actually.

Charlotte is practical, straight forward and to the point. She doesn’t beat around the bush and she doesn’t play games. She knows what she wants and she doesn’t take shit from anyone about anything. She can hold her own in an argument and really floors me with the will power and determination she seems to possess. I adore her!

Wolf, on the other hand, I’m not sure about. I don’t really like him all that much at the moment, but hey! That may change as the story progresses. He’s temperamental and quick to form opinions and judge people. The one thing I hate about him is that once he gets to know somebody, he still doesn’t really change his opinion about them. First impressions are last impressions, huh? But, that’s what I don’t really like about him. Although, I do believe that Wolf has a lot more depth than what has been depicted in the story as of now and that he is a really good person at heart. If given the chance, he could go on to be a really, really phenomenal man. Well, we’ll get to see either way.

I can’t really wait for this to unfold I really recommend all you guys to read it!

“I don’t think he’s a white knight. I’m looking for him to save me. I’m his white knight, Levi. I’m the one saving him.”  –  Charlotte Wright

(Yes, Saloni, I’m still fangirling about this one amazing dialogue. Char is the absolute best!)

#WattpadWednesday (Hidden Gems) – Cosmic Fate, Sash

So, it’s that time of the week again!

Hey, guys! How have you been? Did you read any new amazing books on Wattpad?

I have another for you, right here!

So, this book is really, really very important to me because it’s being written by Sash who is for all intents and purposes my best friend on Wattpad. She’s totally awesome and writes amazing stories and she’s just the absolute best! I adore her! ❤

This week, we’re going to talk about Sash’s current WIP – Cosmic Fate.

1459165497497

 

53301251-176-k455006

|| ❝What happens to the choices you don’t make?❞ ||

Maya, the power by which the universe becomes manifest; the illusion or appearance of the phenomenal world. She was an eighteen-year-old Indian girl. A normal human.

Like me. Like you.

But she had an unfathomable connection with the universe. Having a vast ocean of power vested in her hand, unaware of how to wield, she was under the strict scrutiny of the Evil. The cosmos talked to her, it tried to lure her to her end, but even the universe could not break through the shenanigans of the black power.

Evil wanted to save her for Maya was the key to the several locked overlapping cosmos and she would cause the onset of chaos.

1459165556078

Did you get the shivers while reading this? Cause I sure as heck did! The blurb of this story in itself is so amazing that you can’t help but click on the ‘Start Reading’ button. Because, admit it, this is one of the most interesting blurbs I’ve come across off late. It’s so beautifully written and the use of vocabulary and the imagery it presents is amazing.

If it were me, this blurb and the awesome cover, which I totally, love by the way, would be enough to start reading. But, I know you guys want more and being the totally awesome person that I am, I’m going to give it to you. So, get ready!

The story is about an average girl, Maya, who has been going on about her life. Then, she finds out that she may not be as ordinary as she thinks. There’s stuff that happens to her when she goes to the pilgrimage of the Ganges and she gets marked by unknown forces. Fast forward to sometime later and her carefully constructed life starts changing once again by the appearance of a handsome stranger who claims to be her soulmate. Yeah, things get so much better, eh?

Sadly, this story is in the absolute fetus stage and has only three chapters online, but it’s so freakin’ amazing that I’m gonna recommend it to anyone who listens. I absolutely adore this. I love this. This is the best thing ever. And I am so very, very in love! ❤

Also, Sash is absolutely amazing. She’s so kind and sweet and just really, really amazing. You have to check this story and every other story of hers out. She’s such a brilliant writer, it’s a shame more people don’t know about her. Really. You gotta read her books, man! Totally!

#WattpadWednesday – Half Past, Em Slough

Hey guys!

It’s Wattpad Wednesday again! And this time, I’m covering this one author who I absolutely adore! She’s got so many amazing stories that I love and I could talk about them for days, but the one I’ve chosen here is one that she’s writing at the moment. I absolutely love this story and I’m looking forward to see it unfold!

So, here it is –

Half Past by Emily Slough! ❤

1459165497497

55803370-144-k122014

If the shoe fits, wear it? More like if Prince Henry’s genes actually match Ella Woods’ son’s, then, yeah, it looks like Charming has a kid.

 

 

 

1459165556078

So, this one is really in the beginning stages, only like 10 chapters in, but I love it. I mean, I always love everything this particular girl writes, but this one is just awesome! I absolutely adore it.

It’s so amazing. Like, it’s basically a retelling of Cinderella, but, instead of the shoe, we got a kid here :p

So, Ella met Henry a few years back when he came to dinner at a restaurant where she was waitressing. And then they clicked and yada, yada, yada. You know how that goes right? They slept together, she left in the morning to save herself the humiliation and boom! Two months later she found out that she was pregnant. But, she didn’t have any number to contact Henry and she didn’t even know he was a Prince till she was in her fifth month. However, she wasn’t sure he would believe her, so she never did contact him.

But, she gave up school due to it and took up a job in a local bed and breakfast to support herself and her son. Now, five years later, she runs into Henry again when he bunks in the bed and breakfast she works at for a week.

Of course it doesn’t take Henry long to realize that Fletcher is his son given that he immediately recognizes Ella and Fletch has Henry’s eyes. So, yeah, not rocket science for him to figure it out. To his credit, Henry doesn’t blow up a gasket and accuse Ella of keeping him in the dark. He understands her reasoning and requests her to let him be a part of Fletch’s life going forward.

The characters in this story are absolutely adorable and LOVE them!

Henry is cute and sweet and smart and charming and smexy! Oh my God! He is, he so is. He’s also good at the whole father business considering he’s new and Fletch is already four. They get along amazingly and just the way Henry is with him makes my heart melt. And, he pays so much attention to Ella it just makes me swoon! So many FEELS! ❤

Ella is sucha great mother. She’s smart and funny and lovely and absolutely amazing! I love her. She’s super kickass at the whole thing. She takes all of Henry’s affections towards her and their son in stride despite the fact that she’s seeing him after almost five years.

Fletcher is absolutely, totally adorable. I love him. I absolutely adore him. He’s so freakin’ cute! ❤

He’s pretty inquisitive and wants to know so many things in so little time. Sometimes, nobody has answers to his questions, so Ella makes him write those questions in his ‘Question Book’ so that they can look the answers up together. How cute is that?

Seriously, I love this! I mean, this story is in such a baby stage and #Hella (ship name courtesy of yours truly) is in the fetus stage and still, I adore them! I can’t wait to see how this story unfold because I know it’s going to be a treat to read! ❤

#WattpadWednesday – A Proscriptive Relationship, Jordan Lynde

1459165497497

15427-176-k838503Holly’s new teacher is young and handsome, and he has a dark past. She soon finds herself charmed by Mr. Heywood’s ways and her life gets thrown into chaos. Who knew having an ex-gangster for a teacher could be so troublesome?
The closer they get to each other, the more danger finds them. Holly knows Mr. Heywood is hiding something from his past, but why is it so bad? And more importantly, if she falls for him, could their relationship survive? After all… it would be a proscriptive relationship.

 

 

1459165556078

How am I supposed to put into words how much I love this book? It’s damn near impossible. I’ve loved this story for a long time now. So much so, that after all this time it’s like second nature to love this story. I know it like the back of my hand and I’ve read it more times than I can tell you without embarrassing myself.

Yeah, I really, really love this story. It’s a very significant story in my life. It’s the first ever story that I read on Wattpad. So, this story opened the doors of Wattpad in my life. And all the credit goes that one little friend who knew that it was the best thing in the world that I absolutely had to read. So, thank you, Jo. You made this possible. And I owe you. Huge. :*

Not only did this story introduce me to Wattpad, it’s also the story I recommended to my now best friend. In fact, in the early days of our friendship, we only talked because I suggested her this story and she came back to me with reviews aka to tell me how much she loved it.

So, yeah. This story means a hella lot to me. And I can never ever thank Jordan enough for this beautiful story. The fact that she’s just the absolute best and always makes time for her fans goes a long way in cementing the fact that she is one of the best people around. You just hit her up on Twitter any damn time and she always reverts to your tweets. I know this because most of our interaction has been on Twitter and every time, she has been just amazing. 😀

Okay, so yeah, I think that’s enough gushing about the story and the author. I think we should move on to the fact as to why I love this.

Now, there’s a ton of student – teacher relationship stories out there, but what makes this one different? Well, the biggest difference is that it doesn’t follow the cliche story where the couple meet in summer, fall in love and then school starts and they find out one of them is the teacher. Yeah, not happening here. Holly’s first real, honest to God interaction with Chris happens on her first day of her senior year. So, she already knows he’s her teacher and he knows she’s his student, but they still fall for each other.

Also, Chris isn’t the golden boy from college who kick starts his career as a high school teacher. He has a shady past. And when I say shady, I mean gang wars and prison shady. So, yeah. There’s a lot of back story to Chris’ character. His transformation from a gang leader to a teacher and then finally to Holly’s boyfriend is amazing. It’s so much fun to read.

I believe that these are the two points that hugely distinguish APR from any other Student – Teacher story out there. Also, it’s action packed and has a ton of fights. And, it’s downright hilarious at times. So, yeah, complete package, anyone?

I bet you already love this and I haven’t even gotten to the good part yet. Yes, it does get better. Shut your mouth, you’ll catch flies!

What I love best about this story is the relationship that Chris and Holly aka Hollywood share. It’s absolutely sensational. They’re freakin’ perfect together. Like, totally the best. They laugh and joke around. They’re honest and open with each other, kind of. And they always have each other’s backs. Plus, they’re downright cute and mushy when they want to be. ❤

Talking about the characters individually, I really adore Chris. He’s smart and funny. He’s really handsome and dashing. He’s the world’s best cook (according to Holly, anyway). He’s sweet when he wants to be and he’s insanely protective and possessive. He gets jealous easily. And, yeah, he’s a tad too arrogant. But, I would be too, I guess if I were him. So, yeah. But, he can be total jerk at times. And, he sucks at the cheesy, romantic stuff. So, he’s not perfect, but he is amazing.

Holly, I believe is just your average 17 year old high school student. She’s got best friends and school and homework and the world’s awesomest mom ever. Seriously guys, I heart Lynn Evers. She is ah – mazing. But, talking about Holly, she’s cute, I guess. She blushes at every tiny thing. She’s never been kissed in her life. And of course, she’s never, ever had a boyfriend. But, she isn’t Miss Goody – Two – Shoes by any means. She’s sarcastic and hilarious, if a but sensitive. Also, she’s got a mean right hook (she gets once Chris and Jeremy teach her how to use one :P)

And, then, there’s Jeremy. Who I might add is an absolute sweetheart. He’s Chris’ best friend. He’s amazingly funny and hilarious and cracks the best jokes ever. He’s basically a child in a man’s body. And I adore him! ❤

Apart from him, there’s Casey and Lance, who are Holly’s best friends. They’re also a bunch of high schoolers who hang out together all the time and have a weird obsession with Lord Voldemort. (Yes, Casey, we’re talking about you.)

All in all, I absolutely adore this. And recommend it to everyone!

#WattpadWednesday – The Bad Boy’s Girl, Blair Holden

1459165497497

 

2376933-176-k534577

“Some people bring out the worst in you, others bring out the best, and then there are those remarkably rare, addictive ones who just bring out the most. Of everything. They make you feel so alive that you’d follow them straight into hell, just to keep getting your fix.” — Karen Marie Moning, Shadowfever

Tessa O’Connell is a girl as ordinary as they come-or so she thinks. Her aim for senior year is to keep her head down yet somehow manage to convince her childhood love Jay Stone to love her back. What she isn’t prepared for is for Jay’s brother, Cole to return to town and change the life she’s always been seemingly content to live. Tall, gorgeous as all hell and a bad boy with ocean blue eyes and the perfect edge of adorability, he was her greatest tormentor, her number one enemy.But the guy that’s come back is like no one Tessa’s ever come across. He challenges her, he tests her limits, he forces her to bring out the girl she’s long ago buried under a veil of mediocrity and most of all he compels her to consider that perhaps the boy that infuriates her to the point of no return might just her guardian angel.

1459165556078

This is a story which probably needs no introduction at all. If you’re on Wattpad, I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of it. Who hasn’t? It is one of the most popular books on the website and rightly so.

The way that Blair has written this story is absolutely, gorgeously and beautifully sensational. I love it. There are no words to tell you how much I love it.

Cole Stone, the hero, is essentially every girl’s dream come true. He’s that boy who you’ve admired for a long time and now you finally have him for yourself. And, he loves you. That’s the best part about it, eh? He’s sweet and he’s thoughtful. He’s romantic when he wants to be and he has such a way with words that will definitely turn you into a puddle of goo when you listen to him talk about his girl. The love that he has for Tessa is so deeply seated in his heart that it’s impossible to remove. Over the years, his love has only ever increased and it shows in the way he treats her, like she’s made of glass, like she’s his most priced possession. He’s badass and protective and possessive and if you look at his girl the wrong way, he will most certainly not think twice before burying you. He can do anything for her, and it actually means anything. From hitting his half – brother to breaking up with her so that his slutty groupies leave her alone, he’s done it all. And he will do it any number of times in the future, if it means he’s protecting his Tessie. I mean, how do you not fall for that, yeah?

And, then, there’s Tessa, who is timid and shy. She’s so unsure of herself and doesn’t have a lot of self esteem. In ways, she’s all of us. Her insecurities are those which most of the girls out there go through. She’s us. There’s no two ways about it. But, the way she blossoms with Cole around her is breathtaking to watch. From questioning his motives to wondering why would he ever be interested in a girl like her, Tessa now firmly believes in their relationship and knows that Cole’s in it with her for better and for worse. The way that transformation comes about is definitely a must read.

Cole and Tessa (or as us fans love to call them, Colessa) grow so much as individuals and as a couple in their journey. They make mistakes and they learn from them. They love fiercely and passionately. They have their fights and differences and at times thing are blown out of proportion, but they regroup and they talk it out and make up. Their relationship isn’t all sunshine and rainbows and they accept the fact. But, they know that what they’ve found in each other is something that people try to search for their entire lives and they’re ready to give it their all to save it! That’s what makes them such a beautiful couple.

The Bad Boy’s Girl is truly an amazing read and for any of you die hard romantics, it’s a must read, because this is one of the most amazing love stories I’ve come across in a while.
