The Beauty of the Moment – Tanaz Bhathena | A Book Review

The Beauty of the Moment - Tanaz Bhathena

Title: The Beauty of the Moment

Author: Tanaz Bhathena

Genre: Contemporary

About the book: It alternates between the perspectives of Susan Thomas and Malcolm Vakil who meet at school, fall for each other, drift apart, and reconnect again.

This post is part of a blog tour hosted by Penguin. I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

First impressions: I like the cover and title. Even though I don’t read a lot of romance, I found the premise intriguing.

Characters: I love the racial diversity. It was easy to like both Susan, the new girl, and Malcolm, the bad boy. The secondary characters complement the two main protagonists as well.

Quote:

“Nothing that’s truly meant for you can be taken away.”

Writing: The language is simple and easy to follow. I loved that the story is set in Canada. Neither perspective overtakes the other. I enjoyed the short chapters and the alternating viewpoints.

Final thoughts: I’m a fan of how the plot played out. Relationships are messy and imperfect after all. The ending is my favourite part of the novel. Bhathena crafted a realistic story that will resonate with many readers regardless of age, race, etc.

I highly recommend The Beauty of the Moment, especially for lovers of contemporary romance.
