This book was a spark that I needed in life As a single 24 year old college student busy with her own life marriage is something I have not yet even thought about and this book definitely opened my eyes in different ways The Marriage Clock made me realize marriage and love shouldn t be something forced and rushed upon and that this chapter you encounter in life will come when you meet the right one Thank you Zara Raheem for reminding me that love shouldn t be based on a clock and that it s something to be worth waiting for

Summary The Marriage Clock Zara Raheem µ 8 review review The Marriage Clock 108 Named a Must Read Book of the Summer by POPSUGAR Bustle Book Riot and In Zara Raheem's fresh funny smart debut a young Muslim American woman is given three months to find the right husband or else her traditional Indian parents will find one for her a novel with a universal story that everyone can relate to about the challenges of falling in loveTo Leila Abid's traditional Indian parents finding a husband in their South Asian Muslim American community is as easy as match meet marry But for Leila a marriage of arrangement clashes with h. ARC received from the publisher through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review I wanted to love this book I really did But I had so many issues with the protagonist and her attitude For a 26 year old high school teacher Liela was very immature indecisive and judgemental Her dreams of a Bollywood type love story felt like a fourteen year old s obsession with DDLJ And her unrealistic expectations for MrPerfect made me roll my eyes constantlyLiela s plight was relatable to some extent as the pressure to marry at the right age is common in India as are nosy relatives Even the writing was pretty good for a debut But the writer could have tried to stencil a better heroine than this clueless damsel in distress Also the fact that she s a stickler about not paying for her meal made me respect her less and less The ending was nice Leila putting her self worth before her parents expectations was a good take But it felt too little after everything she went through to please her parents Not that this was a bad book but I wasn t satisfied with it Others might like it if only for the hilarity in Leila s series of horrible dates

Zara Raheem µ 8 review

Summary The Marriage Clock Zara Raheem µ 8 review review The Marriage Clock 108 Er lifelong dreams of a Bollywood romance which has her convinced that real love happens before marriage not the other way aroundFinding the right husband was always part of her life plan but after 26 years of singledom even Leila is starting to get nervous And to make matters worse her parents are panicking the neighbors are talking and she's wondering are her expectations just too high So Leila decides it's time to stop dreaming and start datingShe makes a deal with her parents they'll give her three months until their 30th wedding a. I so wanted to love this book I was actually very sure that I would adore it I won t say that my expectations were necessarily very high but I just felt it in my bones and all I m feeling is sad after finishing the bookThough I ve been blogging for around 2 years now I m still not very observant and tend to not notice any flaws or problematic issues or cliches in the writing unless they are very explicit I actually had to ask my other blogger friends what it meant when reviewers talked about show vs tell style of writing So imagine my surprise when for the first couple of chapters there was just telling and no showing in this book at all and even I was able to recognize that It wasn t bad per se but I guess it just wasn t a great beginning but it turned better once we got into the meat of the story The book is fairly fast paced throughout with lots of hilarious and embarrassing dating situations which were entertaining to read about but sometimes also fell into typical South Asian stereotypes I obviously enjoyed all the desi elements of the book food culture language parents expectations regarding dating and marriage arrange marriage system and all the nosy aunties and especially Bollywood There are so many references to movies and songs and actors which I absolutely loved and found very organic to the story but I don t know how readers who aren t familiar with the industry would feel about it There was a particular situation that made me feel very nostalgic when the main character starts sobbing uncontrollably while watching the movie Veer Zara and the Tere Liye song starts playing while this happens to her during a flight journey it completely transported me to a train journey I took a long time ago when I too started sobbing while listening to the same song The main character s reaction when she visits India also felt very relatable and I couldn t stop reminiscing about my own experiences It s these little little moments in the book that made it worth reading for meI can t say the same for the main character Leila She maybe twenty six years old but is very confused and judgmental and I was both frustrated with her and felt sympathetic towards her plight I really felt for her desperation about wanting to get married while also wanting to choose the guy and pleasing her parents and also answering every single nosy uestion all the time I could totally understand the pressure she was under because however dramatic it might seem it is a reality for many South Asian women However she had too many cinematic expectations about romance and marriage and that felt pretty childish And while I do agree that most of her dates were terrible they were also uite caricaturish And she kept uestioning her self worth because of a guy and I absolutely hated it because I guess I just wanted something from a high school teacher from LA She was very indecisive throughout mostly making decisions based on what her friends suggested or her mother manipulated her into I just wanted her to introspect what she wanted for herself and stand up to her parents And when it finally happened I found it to be too little too late and it totally frustrated me because she didn t even come to that conclusion on her own I m actually not sure how to conclude my review This book has uite a few rave reviews so maybe I m being overly harsh in my judgement The writing was funny for the most part and very relatable to me as an ownvoices Indian reader not Muslim though It s also a very fast read and I got through it in just a few hours I think I wanted from the main character and was disappointed in that regard I won t say that I don t recommend it because it might just be to someone else s taste and I wouldn t want to dissuade any readers
