Review- Love, Whatever That Means by Aditi Mathur Kumar


Hi, I'm Tina. I work for a TV news channel. I have quirky, adorable friends and a Mr. Army Guy who seems like The One. What can go wrong?

Turns out, a lot! My boss is a pervert, the job is meh and no friend is single any more. Also, the special someone is too intense to be true. Help me, someone!

A punch in the nose, deep romance, lots of over-analyzing, a steamy kiss and pure, crazy Tina makes this book a fun read. Laugh out loud or shake your head giggling - Love, Whatever that Means - will warm your heart.

This is the much awaited second book from the hilarious author of the book 'Soldier & Spice: An Army Wife's Life' which is called the handbook for every modern day Indian Army Wife.

Sarika and I had the pleasure to meet Aditi for the second time at Pune Literature Fest 2016. Aditi is such a great person to talk to and I love the way she writes. I absolutely adored Soldier and Spice so I was super excited to read Love, Whatever That Means. Now I have to confess, I think Soldier and Spice still continues to remain my favourite book by her but Love, Whatever That Means was definitely a good read for me.

This is the story of Tina. Tina works for a TV News Channel, she has a group of friends she spends her free time with and in general she's trying to get ahead in life. But things are obviously not as simple as they seem. Her new boss is a pervert and she may or may not be falling hard for a certain Army guy. We get to see Tina wade through life while trying to keep her head above the water.

I loved Tina. She was such a cute and sweet girl. I found her thought processes to be extremely funny and easy to relate to. Tina was young. She had her vulnerabilities and insecurities but she was also all in all a good person. I loved Tina's friends as well. There couldn't be a more supportive bunch and the way they rallied around Tina when she was in trouble was great to see. I liked how we got to know a little about each one of them and what was happening in their lives.

Now for the best part, obviously, the romance for me. It was amazing. I found Virat aka Army Guy to be the perfect match for Tina. Virat was the strong and silent types basically the complete opposite of Tina. But he was steady and intense and so sure of his feelings for her. I loved how patient he was with Tina when she was unsure of her feelings. The romance was definitely swoon worthy for me. 

Love, Whatever That Means at the core is Tina trying to find her footing in life. Combined with that are the issues she has to deal with. Aditi's writing is engaging and easy. I kept flipping the pages. One flaw I'd like to point out are the typos in the book. It got a bit annoying and that did decrease my enjoyment of the book a little bit. Nevertheless, Love, Whatever That Means was a great read for me. I would definitely recommend it!
