The Rule Breakers by Preeti Shenoy, Out in stores now! Also let's meet in these cities! :)

Yesterday, my eleventh book The Rule Breakers went out into the world!

It was a proud and a happy day :)

I had an interview at Red FM, and in the video above, you can see me, along with RJ Zeishah, and she loved the book. It was wonderful discussing the book with her.

The book is out in bookstores now.

So, you don't have to wait anymore, if you wish to read it :)

The story is a COMPLEX one. It begins very simply and easily. It is the story of Veda.
But after she gets married (at 19) to a guy chosen by her parents, and shifts to Pune from Joshimath, new people enter her life.  The timid, shy Veda must now carve her own path.

Here are a few characters from the book:

Follow Veda's story, as she goes through life, and find out for yourself, who the REAL rule-breakers  are in this book!

Get it from your local bookstore or order online and pay cash on deliver:

Folks in Pune and Ahmedabad, I am coming to your city! Folks in Ahmedabad--it is a closed event on 20th September, which needs an RSVP and you can request me for an invite by mailing me on ps(at)preetishenoy(dot)com.

  2. I am unable to write a review on Amazon that's why i am writing my thinking about this book after reading Preeti Shenoy mam for #therulebreakers
    first of all very well written , precise writing.....your writing creates a world around me how you describe about " Joshimath' , VEDA, VIDYA, ANIMESH, KAMLA, RAJINDER, VANDANA, SURAJ AND ALL CHARACTERS. initial chapters from starting a perfect writings of first 2-3 chapters, "90 का दशक जहा पर लड़कियों को ज्यादा महत्व नहीं दिया जाता, लडके ही सबके लिए मैंने रखते थे | जहा वेदा पढ़ने मे आगे थी फिर भी father was more worried about only for his son only". मे गाव मे पला बड़ा हुआ हु इन सब चीजों को 90 के दशक मे मेने महसूस किया और देखा है | वेद जो अंदर ही अंदर सबकुछ अच्छा कर ने के बाद भी एक थोड़ी सी शाबाशी तक भी नहीं मिलती उसे वही उसकी मम्मी कमला जो बस अपने पति और बछो मे ही पूरा दिन और जिंदगी गुजार देती है| pg-11 rekha and veda conversation looks like every girls common conversation and it binds to read more a hard reality you written inside the book from a girls point of view. a perfect writings for suraj and veda now pg-13 5th para girls always worried whats her parents think if she change hair style, if she change dressing styles ? 15th page lil be emotional and perfect one writings. एक लड़की जो अभी किसी से मिली बस ख्वाब देखना शुरू ही किया था कि उसे कोई लड़का देखने आ गया | its story from evry "single person out of 10". the book has lil emotional, lil sadness, lil happiness, lil angriness, lil reality a hard reality of 90's. what perfect comeback in last some chapters and when they mutually understand to seperate becoz no one is finds happiness in all relationships and sometimes you need to break rules to bring happiness " ek एसी लड़की जिसे ना ही अपने घर मे अहमियत मिली ना ही किसी और जगह पर फिर भी उसने सब कि ख़ुशी और भलाई ही चाही | i am not going to disclose all the secret fun of this #therulebreakes book written by Preeti Shenoy mam. FOR ME IT IS 5 OUT OF 5 STARS becoz only those who can understand who sees this kind of people in 90s, when i was reading it was creating an imaginary world around me i assume characters how they looks. and my request is to all readers , do not give 1 star i am saying this not because, i am follower of Preeti Shenoy mam but becoz whatever she wrote on 90's plot it was hard reality for girls and still 20-30% are suffering by that mindset as well i hope so you all read quiet proper mindset. Thank You so much mam for writing such a nice book will look forward for next book and many many congrats for this book as well i had only one bad feelings that you were came in Ahmedabad but i was unable to come and meet you once in a life. 5 STAR OUT OF 5 #therulebreakers by Preeti Shenoy mam
    Thank you so much for a lovely book.

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.

2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer

3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg

 4. Little Fires Everywhere --Celeste Ng

5. Bad Blood --John Carryrou.

6. Knight of seven Kingdoms: GRR Martin

Forty seven things I learnt.

I turned 47 today. This is a picture clicked today. I received a lot of flowers today.

The older I get, the more grateful I am for everything that I have in my life. Today, I am living my dream. There's nothing more I ask from life!
The path hasn't been easy at all. There have definitely been so many downs. When I look back, I think for every victory of mine, there has been a failure. But I have fought. I am a fighter. I never give up.
Persistence pays.
Age has made me wiser, calmer and very very sure of many things.
Here are 47 things I have learnt along my path. These are things I practise.

1. Say NO to negativity of any kind.
2. People will treat you the way you allow them to.
3. If people really care for you, they will make time; Otherwise they will make excuses.
4. Be grateful for every one who is kind to you.
5. Better to have TWO genuine friends who truly care for you than a HUNDRED friends who aren't so genuine.
6. Fitness is everything.
7.Always have a 'nest…

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.

You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…
