Genre: Romance

I am essentially a reader of novels, so this is the first time I read a romantic short story collection. I must say I am glad I read it. Namrata has effectively woven sensitive romantic emotions to tug the reader’s heart. Each story has a soul full of tender and heartfelt love. The book is a collection of twenty love stories, each having different shades of romance like delight, agony, yearning, despair, ecstasy, fulfillment and many more emotions which cannot be described but felt by the heart.

Namrata has started each story with a heart touching quote or a poem. My favorite is:

“In losing myself

I found you”

The stories are short and crisp, no intricate plots or character building but more of narrations or diary entries of an event or an emotion. Namrata has given an apt title to this collection as Metro Diaries. As a debut author, Namrata has displayed a lot of potential in the form of this book and would love to read more from her. If you like love stories and poems, then you must read Metro Diaries. It’s a cozy, romantic read.
