I Need A J – Just You, Me and a Secret by Ganga Bharani Vasudevan @ganga_bharani


The year is coming to an end and I was looking at my 2019 Alphabet Soup Reading Challenge to find out what I was lacking and I needed a J. I looked through my Kindle and found Just You, Me and a Secret by Ganga Bharani Vasudevan. I picked it up on an Amazon free day, 6.7.16.

Just you, me and a secret

Amazon / Goodreads


There are some definite bumps and bruises in Ganga Bharani’s first novel, but I am so happy I grabbed it on an Amazon free day.

I love the cover and it fits the story perfectly!

When I first began I struggled a bit. It reads like an ARC, rough around the edges, but I persevered and am glad I did.

Meera has lost her memory and her future husband, a doctor, is helping her to regain it. She reads her diary, Clara, and learns about her life. For some reason she is drawn to San, her lifelong friend, more than to Ashruth, her intended. Could the bash on her head have changed her that much?

As the story unfolds, I find myself getting more involved in her life and I am hoping she comes to the same conclusion I have.

The ending makes everything worthwhile.

Just You, Me And A Secret is a story of an amnesiac, Meera, who battles between her past and present.

Meera Prabhu wakes up after a terrible accident with absolutely no memory of herself. She sees a stranger in the mirror and seems to be living with another stranger, Ashruth. Ashruth, a doctor by profession and a clown by appearance, claims that he is her fiancé. They were engaged to be married and would have been married already if not for the accident. He keeps on emphasizing on how much she loved him and yet, he keeps her apart from her family for her ‘mental state’. Armed with what seems to be her personal diary, Meera tries to grasp her identity and her reality. But no matter how hard she tries, she just seems to be unable to connect. Will Meera break through the hurdles in front of her and be able to connect to her friends and family again? Most importantly, will she ever regain her identity again?

    • sometimes the challenges lead me down a road i wouldn’t normally travel and that’s why i do them

  1. This cover is absolutely beautiful! It looks like the kind of photography I love to do. The book also sounds really great even if it is a little rough. I have a hard time finishing rough books but I’ve found that more times than not I am glad I finished them.

    • isn’t it fabulous? I must have picked this up on one of those one click days. lol not my normal fare, but i do love being CHALLENGED and stepping outside my comfort zone

    • yeah, i know what you mean. maybe your mood will change, but regardless of whether you ‘finish’ you did a great job. i haven’t tried the author challenge, but it does sound even harder, so….maybe i’ll give it a go

    • when i was scrolling through the js on my reading list the cover convinced me to give it a go
