I’m back again with yet another book review. I know that I am unintentionally turning this into a book blog, but eventually I will get back to more real life posts soon I promise!
Let’s get back to the topic at hand. This book review in case you haven’t noticed is about the book When Dimple met Rishi by Sandy Menon. Let’s just say from the jump that all the hype surrounding this book is real and I loved it!
This book is told from both the perspective of Dimple and Rishi at different times throughout their summer experience. Dimple is an aspiring web developer who is obsessed with meeting her idol, Jenny Lindt. She begs her parents to let her go to InsomniaCon a web development seminar held at Stanford. Her parents agree to let her go, but secretly decide that this would also be a good opportunity to set her up with her Indian husband. Rishi agrees to be setup on the arrangement with Dimple because he believes in traditions and stability. Even though Rishi has agreed publicly to study to be a doctor, he secretly still aspires to be a comic book artist.
I will try and keep my promise to not spoil the ending of the book too much, though I’m pretty sure that you can guess in this YA romance. I loved that the majority of this book took place over just a few weeks with several flashbacks to both Dimple and Rishi’s childhood. I will say that along with everyone else that I would have liked a glossary with a translation of the Indian/Hindi words throughout the book. I would definitely recommend this book if you are looking for a quick fluffy read. I was actually surprised how quickly I read this book once I got into and then wondered why I had put off reading for so long.
Let me know if you have read this book and what you thought. I also added a Currently Reading section in my sidebar instead of the usual books I’ve read. If you have any recommendations for books I should read this year, let me know 🙂 I’ll see you soon with another post.
