Won this in the official Giveaway. I thank Kritika Sharma for a copy

And a copy it was. Half Baked Beans have done a great job with this books' design. It is really nice to hold and the smoothness is something I can't write but exclude at the same time from my review.

You may think I am crazy, but I do judge the books cover art and there handiness! In terms of that, top 5 covers I have felt this year.

Coming to the story. Well, a bit more about the design first.

When I won this, I read the blurb and

Was I surprised?

Do I recommend it?
You Betcha!

I distrust modern Indian authors. And I am definitely being a hole "where the sun don't shine".

And I am changing my tune.

This one is an original enough storyline, cute characters and plot and good writing.
I am so happy with this one!!

I’m fond of ghost stories. A ghostly romance reminded me of a movie in Malayalam, and I was intrigued by the plot. It was when I was discussing with another book lover that I came to know there was a movie with a similar plot in English and in Hindi as well. It made me wonder if the book flowed in a similar way.

Kritika Sharma makes her debut with this book, “Live-in with a Ghost”. Jia wakes up in a hospital one night, and wanders around the empty halls, where she runs into Jai who is surprised t

Loved the book and its characters...
The story line is different, not like regular everyday romance you read... Found it relatively fresh and entertaining... :)

My friend recommended the book considering her sister wrote it.
Well the title is intriguing and very different. Plus the cover is also very attractive, I would have liked more if the cover was more metallic and shiny, instead of plain, anyway, leaving cover aside, the story is amazing
Simply loved it. The way it is written is simple and understandable.
The command on English grammar is good and characters are beautifully woven.

Honestly I fell in love with Jai... I wish I could have a guy like him

Live in with the ghost is a story of Jia and Jai. Yes, alphabets interchanged like they are their own. One has a body and other does not have it (Ghost). Once they both did not have it and once they will both again have it. Confused? Okay! Let me simplify it, 'Live in with the Ghost' is a story of Jia who met an accident and fell into a coma. She met Jai, who is also in a coma because of an accident. They meet and start having good moments together when Jia got out of her comma leaving Jai behin ...more

My rating is 3.75

There are some books that can take you to a totally different world. You find a way to escape from your problems and chores whenever you bury your nose in such books. Well, Live-in with a Ghost is one such book that can provide you a delightful mini-break. Recommended to anyone who wants to read a light-hearted, unique romance novel!

Let me tell in the beginning that this book is not exactly a ghost story. So don't expect any amount of horror or spine-chilling thrill in it. That

The story is different and i like the writing style,
What i like about the book is -
simple language and the narration is lucid.
concept is unique
Jia, a journalist by profession,goes into coma probably. and is just one step before


The story has two main characters and the story revolves around them.
“Jia and Jai! It looks like our names are shuffled for each other

Jai was there in the hospital from Three months

Live-in with a ghost

Cover : 2.5/5
Cover design needs to be improved. Doesn't match with the story overall. Gives a romantic depiction whereas the title gives a spooky one.

Title : 3.5/5
The title is justified with the story. But the suspence part can incorporate the title into something else.

Theme : 3/5
What if you woke up one day and found yourself in coma. The events which happen and how a person who helps you recover from it matters a lot.

Story : 2.5/5
Live in with the ghost is a story of Jia and

My review

For those non-Indians who don’t know, in India a slight swap in the spelling of a name can alter the gender like in this novel Jia is the girl and Jai is the boy. Funny huh?
This is a really short novel, a 150 pages and very fast. The author doesn’t believe in too much character building and she goes with the story. And yet I didn’t hate it. Sometimes it’s good to read a fast-paced book concentrating on the story more than the characters.


As I said the characters were not fully

Title is what interested me to read then the cover. I really liked it.

Now if we talk about the plot it was nothing new for me as a wattpader. Still I pretty much liked it.
It is a novella that's why a little fast paced. I was hoping to see more from the ending as it is...just a happy ending. Like how after Jai woke up he didn't question to Jia about her story and they just happened.

Though there are some key features too to the story. Like how it had it's hilarious dialogues- mainly of Jai. And

The best part about the book is It is unique. The idea of live in with a ghost in itself is a great and interesting topic to read. The character Jai and Jia are amazing, their love for each other was cutely expressed. How she fell for a casanova and how Jai turns out to be a true lover has been written so beautifully . You just cant rest until you are done with the book. I really loved it . Recommended for people who are fond of love stories
