When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon {Stephanie’s Review}


I pulled a TBR prompt to read a young adult contemporary. I’m trying to read more from my own TBR and between the TBR prompt and Summer of Love it seemed like a great time to pick up When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon.

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but I felt like I had heard a lot of great praise for Dimple when it first released. I had higher than normal expectations for When Dimple Met Rishi before I started reading. Honestly, I really enjoyed the story. I also liked that it was being told by both Dimple and Rishi.

The inclusion of Indian culture was particularly wonderful for me. I didn’t have a lot of exposure to different cultures growing up. It makes me appreciative to learn about different cultures.

The relationship between Dimple and her mother was something special to watch. I’m a sucker for relationships with family members where it is a prickly relationship but when it matters the relationship is solid.

I have to admit to being frustrated with Dimple during times in the book. While I can understand what she was thinking, I couldn’t agree with her. Dimple and Rishi’s relationship isn’t easy but it was fun to watch the ups and the downs. I liked Rishi and could identify with his personality more.

I really enjoyed When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon and I’ll probably be continuing the series!

  1. I love when there is a good family relationship in the book (either siblings or between child and parent). Great review!


    1. This one had both of those things. It was wonderful. Thanks!!


  2. This has been on my TBR for awhile! I will make sure to not have stratospheric expectations, and then I bet I’ll love it! ❤


    1. I think that is a great idea! Sometimes when there are really high expectations it can hurt my reading experience. This was a great book and I enjoyed it but I didn’t love it the way I thought I should and that made me sad. I can’t wait to hear what you think!


  3. I haven’t heard of this one. I’m glad you enjoyed it.


    1. It was really pretty good. I’m going to continue the series!
