Author Bio:

ReemaD'souza is a twenty something. She is  an engineer by the day and when the sun sets to make way for the night, she put on her thinking cap and her fingers itch to hit the keyboard and write.
When she is not writing, she likes to read. That is not all. Music gives her a high and she loves to sing and play the keyboard. She also loves sports. A dreamer that she is, she dreams of travelling the world and being a best selling author.
And yeah, she never says no to chocolates and ice creams!

Book Blurb:

But then you have those moments of pure bliss! Buying something for your parents with your hard earned money, being appreciated at work, excelling in a skill you never thought you had, realizing that you have friends who are real gems and are always there for you, and maybe finding the love of your life. Twenties may be a mess, but then when you look back they are a beautiful mess!
Alana is a twenty something too and there is a lot happening in her life. Read more about her journey in the book.
There is so much that happens in our twenties. Graduation, first job, first salary, staying away from home, dating, being broke, being bored with the job that you worked so hard to get, and relatives and neighbours sneakily trying to find a suitable bride/groom for you when you've no idea about what you want to do next in your life. You are a mess. You thought you'd have everything sorted; you had those dreams in your eyes when you graduated. But when you look at it you've nothing sorted, you don't know which way to turn and you constantly ask yourself "What am I doing?" Those dreams that you once wanted to turn into reality are still dreams.

Review:

Lifeand Times of a Twenty Something is a lyrical retreat in the soothing words of Reema D' Souza that you would like to enjoy with your earphones, iPod and a hot cup of tea on a weekend!

It is a semi - autobiographical account, written in first person, that makes the reading an intimate and personal experience. The author navigates through the routine - triumphs and struggles alike - of Alana with comfort and makes this 59 page long ebook a breeze to read through. =

I found ending every 'chapter' with a song very unique. She left her words at the perfect spot from where the songs drove 'it' home. The stories about interviews, college life, new jobs, financial independence (or the lack of it!), exes etc. are familiar but Reema's writing makes this a stroll down the memory lane.

The one thing that distracted me was the font of the ebook. It could have used a little more editing to make resonate with the overall idea of intimacy. The cover is standard too and could have been more colorful and be a reflection of the content in a better way.

Overall, I would recommend this ebook as a nice nostalgia read that would make you remember, and even reach out, to someone from 'a few years ago'.
