Book Review: Karmic Hearts by Jhing Bautista

hotpink wborderr



Love. Magic. Fate. Best-selling romance novel author Karmina Joan writes about these things. She believes that every person has a purpose, that every soul has a destiny to fulfill. She thought hers was simply sharing her stories.

Her story unfolds with Cupid, the Angel of Love himself. He brings with him a mysterious vessel and a message from on high. It turns out Karmina has a bigger purpose after all—a mission that will make or break humanity as we know it.

As Cupid teaches her the tricks of his trade, Karmina unknowingly gives him something unexpected in return— something the angel of love will find oddly familiar. This may become the one flaw in an otherwise perfect plan that destiny had in store for them.

Does love truly conquer all or are there limits to what humanity can do in the name of love? Witness as Karmina struggles to find the answers before time runs out on true love.

I can guarantee you, the tale in the pages of this book is as beautiful (or even more than) as its cover. 

Karmic Hearts is Jhing Bautista’s best story, to date. I read Karmic Hearts back when it was just a Wattpad story. I was already a reader of Jhing prior to this and how can I not be intrigued with KH? The plot itself just screams “READ ME!” and so I did. I was so excited to see how she’ll venture into fantasy because she’s trying out something new this time around. Her past stories leans more solely in to the romance genre. I’ve read most of her Wattpad stories and so I can say that I was able to witness her growth as an author. Especially with Karmic Hearts. I saw how she took the challenge with KH, explore deeper into fantasy and create a masterpiece of her own.

With that being said, yes I read it in its original form and I noticed some differences but I won’t dwell on that. In this review I would like to just focus on the strengths of the published version. I think I fell in love with it even more.

I’ll start with Karmic Hearts’ book cover. With other Wattpad stories turned pocketbooks, I can pass up in buying the physical copies of it. But it’s not the similar case with this one. I already love the story in itself but when they revealed the cover, I knew then that it is a must to buy one. I would never get tired of saying that Karmic Hearts has got to be the PopFiction (PF) book with the most gorgeous cover. How would you top that one, PF? A big bonus of being able to capture one of the powerful scenes between Cupid and Mina too. Gorgeous cover and when I popped open the book I was welcomed with two enchanting illustrations. Because of those illustrations, I found myself crushing on Cupid really hard. Why does he have to be that handsome and fashionista?

I’m also glad that when PF decided to publish it, they took some time to have it translated in English because I do believe that it is worthy to have a wide exposure and to be read by an even wider range of readers.
