When Dimple Met Rishi has been high on my list of upcoming titles for a while now and I LOVED IT SO MUCH. From the first few pages I was just completely in love with the characters and desperately rooting for them to do well. This book is full of cultural representation, fluffy romance and completely geekiness which I absolutely adored!

I learnt a lot from this book about Dimple and Rishi’s culture and I thank Sandhya Menon so much for that. I loved seeing such a positive portrayal of arranged marriage because I think it will help to break the stereotypes that can sometimes spring to mind when arranged marriage is spoken of. There is very much a focus on developing a wonderful companionship and mutual love and respect and I love that it wasn’t forced here. Although it is what their parents want, they are also very accepting of not getting their desired outcome. I just thought it was all written beautifully. I also loved how bilingualism was represented with the characters regularly speaking Hindi as well as English. This felt very natural and it was wonderful to see it being acknowledged in the book. When Dimple Met Rishi is authentic in a way only an #OwnVoices book can be.

Dimple Shah is easily one of my new favourite fictional ladies. She was so independent, hilarious and sassy and I just loved how focused she was. She is a perfect example of how it is okay to be a girl and be ambitious and want to put yourself out there in a world that is male-dominated. I was completely behind Dimple all the way and I loved how passionate she was. Rishi was like an adorable little puppy and I just wanted to take him under my wing a bit. He was SO fluffy and wonderful and passionate and caring and I just loved him.

Went into this 'arranged marriage' YA rom-com a little sceptical... but Dimple and Rishi won me over. Against the backdrop of a San Fransisco summer camp for coders, two teens who meet and fall for each other. But only one of them knows that it’s an arranged match set up by their traditional Indian parents. What follows is a novel as cheerful as its beautiful cover suggests. Dimple and Rishi are simply adorable. Dimple has ambition and backbone and is not afraid to speak her mind. Rishi is romantic and thoughtful and ever such a little in awe of his parents. They both need what they other has, they just don't realise it. Throw in some roommate angst, meddling parents and the preppy, obnoxious 'Aberzombies' and you've got the YA hit of the summer.

This book has been so well advertised/trailed on social media I was afraid to believe the hype but oh my god it's wonderful!!! Dimple and Rishi are two of the best YA protagonists I've read in a long time. This was a story that wasn't afraid to bring loads of cultural references, insane chemistry between the leads, mature decisions (it's clean but these two are no shrinking violets) and supporting characters that could easily get their own spin off (I'd love a book about Rishi's brother...).

When Dimple Met Rishi is an incredibly cute contemporary YA rom-com. Despite the cuteness and some slightly moving themes, it was all utterly predictable and lacked any genuinely funny or surprising moments. It was an entertaining enough read, I devoured it quickly but forgot about it the moment I finished it.

Loved this book so much - diversity, cuteness and social commentary all wrapped up in one lovely storyline. Spoke to me on so many levels, with very relatable, likeable protagonists.

I absolutely LOVED this book! Here's a few reasons why:
1.) The main characters are Indian-American. (I can't tell you how glad I am that this book is breaking YA barriers. I mean, how many books have you seen with a brown girl on the cover?)
2.) Being British-Indian, I finally found a book where I can truly relate to the characters, especially on a cultural level. (Language. Food. Overbearing - but with good intentions - parents. etc.)
3.) The cutest and most precious romance ever! (think Stephanie Perkins, but even cuter)
4.) A+ Bollywood references (written in a way that everyone can understand & enjoy)
5.) A+ humour throughout the entire book
6.) Role reversal - I love how Rishi was the hopeless romantic, and Dimple was just like 'Love? The only love I have is for coding.'
7.) Sex positive (← we need more of this in YA books!)
8.) Rishi Patel, aka the sweetest, most adorable, hilariously sarcastic love interest. He was by far my favourite character of the book! (Someone please tell me, where do I find myself a Rishi?)

Basically this book had everything I want in a contemporary.

It's been a long time since I smiled so much while listening to an audiobook. At times while listening to this, I was outright flailing, with my hands all curled up while I squealed. This book is a bundle of joy and sometimes cringeworthy levels of cheese -- but I loved it. I don't usually go for romantic comedies, either as books or films, but when I started hearing about this book last year, I knew I had to have it right when it came out. I really wanted to read an #ownvoices book about two teens struggling to reconcile their strongly held Indian family/cultural beliefs with life as American teens.

What drew me to the book, and what ultimately made me love it so much, was how these teens would navigate the waters between their two shared cultures. I loved the clash between Dimple's ambition and career orientated feminism, coupled with Rishi's belief in kismet and family values. The two of them together were just heartwarmingly cute. Their dialogue was sharp and priceless. Rishi was just wonderful. Definitely in my top 10 for adorable, nice boys in YA who deserves the happy ending he gets. His greatest wish in their relationship was to make Dimple smile.

Dimple's relationship with her family was another high point in the book for me. She feels so much pressure to be what she is not, thinking that her family only want her to be quiet and submissive, and to find the Ideal Indian Husband. But her relationship with her mother especially opens up so much in this book, and we learn how badly she has misread them. Her parents, like Dimple, are full, multi-dimensional characters with sometimes conflicting wishes.

This book is primarily a rom-com, but I did appreciate the quiet commentary it made about nepotism, racism, misogyny and homophobia in the tech industry.
