Review of Adulting By Neharika Gupta.

Title: Adulting

Author: Neharika Gupta

Format: Paperback Edition

Book length: 216 pages

Language: English

Publisher: HarperCollins India.


Social media manager and popular blogger Aisha is flirty and flamboyant … even as she battles personal demons that tell her she must stop eating if she wants to stay pretty.

Ruhi couldn’t be more different from her friend Aisha. Working at Litracy Publishing, she feels grossly underappreciated by the editor-in-chief, who happens to be her mother. What keeps her going are her own ambitions – and her handsome author Tejas.

Bestselling novelist Tejas has a bad case of writer’s block. He leans on Ruhi for emotional support before getting enamoured by Aisha as he struggles to live up to everyone’s expectations, including his own.

Bold and unapologetic, this is a story of love and self-discovery, heartache and book launches.


Adulting by Neharika Gupta is a story of 3 individuals interesting each other’s path at a point in each other’s life.

The book has a love story and to be precise a love triangle between Publisher Ruhi, Bestselling writer Tejas, and social media manager Aisha.
How things roll out among them in a working atmosphere, and how Tejas fails to stay in a relationship with Aisha or Ruhi?
Read to find out, if you love reading stories with love triangle.

Plot is somewhat predictable, but what author is trying to put forward is things people do in the age of adulting, how people pressurise themselves with the responsibilities, relationships when they are not even to handle themselves properly, so that makes the title suitable as per the plot.

Characters don’t really have much to offer, as the characteristics of protagonist are similar to other romance genre characters, but still good enough to hold on to the story.

Narration is something that puts the life in this novel, as Neharika Gupta manages to put a predictable plot in a very soothing and humorous manner.

Obviously, the story could have had something more to offer with its characters and plot with which readers could have got some more fun till the climax.

Overall a good book to read, if you love reading such genre with love triangles and notions of young generation.
