I start reading Secret Diary of an Incurable Romantic (Um…and a closet alcoholic) by Chitrangada Mukherjee. I find out that the book fits its title in a very nice way – it really is in a diary format. I love books that are written this way; they have a kind of humor that other books lack. It is really fun to read them. 

I continue reading the book and realize that I quite like the writing style of the novel. The idea behind it is rather upsetting – a woman has just lost her husband. She is a grieving widow who is trying to build her life back together but failing to do so. Hence, she ends up wallowing out her sorrows in alcohol. (Something a lot many people can relate to, can’t they? Wallowing out their sorrows in alcohol, I mean?)

I continue reading the book. I’m really enjoying it. It is breaking my heart at more than one incidents but I cannot get myself to stop. Madhu is making me laugh so damn hard that I am unable to believe she is a widow trying to pull her life back together. It has only been a few months since Pyaare passed away in an accident. Will she be able to pull herself up?

What’s up with her new boyfriend? Why does he have to be so darn pathetic and cruel? I can’t believe he is doing whatever he is doing and then getting angry at her for not telling him about Pinto. This book is so damn honest. I can’t believe I haven’t been able to read it in the past.

Finished. Yep, just like that, the book is done. It sucks seeing how Madhu led her life but then, everything ended on a good note, right? Or did they? Now that her MIL is absent, how will she survive all alone? Oh, this is scary but I loved the book. I guess my fear for her is evidence enough.

In fact, I quite enjoyed reading it. Her story really upset me and it broke my heart but Mukherjee’s novel touched me in the way only Cecelia Ahern’s P.S. I Love You had done in the past. So yes, it is an amazing book and I would love to lay my hands on more of Mukherjee’s works in the future!
