You're going to want to read this I 500% declare it trueThe best part? Both Dimple and Rishi are HUGE nerds Dimple is all into coding and computers and Rishi is in denial though a huge comic book artist Like excuse me while that is the perfect pair?? And let's be real here There were thoroughly perfect at all times And when they met and and Rishi though she knew about their parents arranged marriage so jokingly says Hello future wife and she throws her coffee at him and runs away? #shippingI also really liked how it was a positive story about arranged marriage I know it's a huge cultural thing but honestly the few times I've read about it it's always been a super dark negative And this wasn't like their parents were all GET MARRIED OR DIE Their parents were Super nice and chill about it OkDimple's mum was the opposite of chill But the parents really were lovely and wanted the best for their kids And that's so healthy and lovely to read??? And just the way Dimple and Rishi's friendship grew after they both decided NAY SIR to the arranged marriageso much irony So much cute I ship it so hard I cannot evenAnd I really loved their voices The story is in 3rd person which is my favourite and also ridiculously rare for contemporaries I feel like I connected to the story SO much with it being in 3rd I loved how we got both Dimple and Rishi's perspective Becuase jfkdlsa dI love them both so much Rishi is the most pure cinnamon roll to ever exist And Dimple is all sharpness and intelligence and basically the bestI do have a very very smol list of dislikes though Because I'm fussy I know dramatic sob in the corner• I though Rishi's brother Ashish's storyline was completely thrown in and random It really detracted from RishiDimple• Some of Dimple's choices at the end were really frustrating But likebeing a teen isn't about being super mature all the time I KNOW THAT She was unfair but she was human so while reader me is crying a bit human me is understanding• Also it was a teeny bit predictableBut like those are tiny things?? I honestly thoroughly enjoyed it and it was full of suishy happy feels and so nerdy and geeky and all the things I want to read about The writing was fabulous and I really cared about the characters Also all the praise for adorable sweet nerdy boys like Rishi who are too precious for this world And 1010 for all the food appreciation I realise it's late at night but I'm starving thanks for nothing to this book

Sandhya Menon ô When Dimple Met Rishi text

Than himselfThe Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program they figured Why not?Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out But when opposites clash love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways Ohhhh do I got a rant for this book When Dimple Met Rishi was supposed to be the book of my dreams It was supposed to clear my acne and water my neglected plants It was supposed to help get into a good university and build my self confidenceBut the only thing it actually did was make me silently cry fake tears bc I wasn’t even invested in it enough to spend actual emotions on it Pros Indian representation – I’m pretty familiar with the culture bc I’ve grown up around Indians my entire life and so when I got my hands on this book I was legit crying tears of joy until I reached the second chapter and it fell to poop Still gotta give it for the indian rep ummm there was some nerd talk going on but it was so overwhelmed by the kissing it was hard to concentrate on it well yeah that’s all I gotCons effing everything we’ll start with Dimple this kid tHIS KID IS HERE TO RUIN MY LIFE shes effing annoying shes rood as hell she has NO RESPECT FOR ANYTHING OR ANYONE shes abusive for no bloody reason Dimple punched him in the ribs lighter than she wanted to but he still winced “Ow You know most girls just slap guys playfully on the arm or something They don’t actually hurt them”“Well maybe you need to expand your idea of how girls behave” Dimple replied grinning Did she just pull a “I’m not like other girls” as a reason to why shes abusive ??? “I’m not like other girls im abusive” nice love it next She Is So Indecisive “I wanna make out with you but I don’t actually wanna be with you bc I can’t let you blindsight my goals” “but no lets make out” Okay um ??? NEXT THE WRITING Made waxing seem fun Let me tell you kids Its not My nephew is three years old and if I asked him to write me a story Im 110% sure he could create something with better writing Yes im not exaggerating okay maybe I am just a little bit Hmmmmmmmm what else The fact that these kids were kissing than they were working on THIS PLOT FOR THE BOOK MAYBE Who cares about what he tastes like oh my lord I don’t want to hear it spare me please Also Rishi this kid is cute man I like him I LIKED him until HE STARTED LIKING DIMPLE Like boi she treats you like garbage why are you doing this to yourself Have some self worth Finally HATING ON RICH PEOPLE BC THEYRE RICH STOP BLOODY DOING THAT its not cuteAnyways this book was a good try a very good try and I appreciate the indian rep but likeThese characters aren’t doing anything for a plot that is nonexistent Sorry Also if you wanna check out another awesomesauce review that’s most definitely NOT racist you can check out my Canadian sista Tweebs 15 stars Blehhhhthis is literally the 3rd book I started today not bc i have zero impulse control but bc i MESSED UP OUR BR DATES DAMN ME and im trying to rectify my mistakes Buddy read with my Max and my Emmy

epub ☆ When Dimple Met Rishi ô Sandhya Menon

When Dimple Met RishiDimple Shah has it all figured out With graduation behind her she’s than ready for a break from her family from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband” Ugh Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level though If they truly believed she needed a husband right now they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for as Oh my GOD you guys I know people have said this book is bad I know pretty much every source I trust full on hated this book But like wowDo you ever read a book and you’re almost impressed by how bad it is? This one is like genuinely written in the hopes of creating diversity in the young adult genre and look at that Girl hate Almost enough to make me laugh if I weren’t already crying from hopelessness depressed with the irrefutable knowledge that young adult literature will be teeming with ingrained sexism from now until the end of time and no amount of angry uoting in ranty one star reviews will change thatNothing mattersLet’s get into it CategoriesNOT LIKE OTHER GIRLSHere’s a fun fact even if you don’t use the exact phrase “not like other girls” creating that situation under a different wording is still bad It’s still benefiting off the same trope of putting down girls at large in order to make your dumbass character seem greater than and uniue Example “Even when she was in elementary and middle school she always chose computers as her choice of centers while all the other popular girls seemed to cluster together in art or reading”This wholllllleeeeeee book we cannot escape how Uniue and Different Dimple is She is just So Cool She likes Computers Okay that is actually really cool More girls in STEM But not at the expense of making it seem like reading and art aren’t important? Because uh They are Also this book describes programming and web design exactly never despite TAKING PLACE AT A PROGRAMMING CAMPGIRL HATEIn my experience the Venn diagram of “books where the popular kids are evil” and “books with girl hate” is a circle And even if it wasn’t god don’t both suck?But we don’t have to talk about that right now because this book is just still proof that the two coexist beautifully And by “beautifully” I mean “go hand in hand because life is hell and books are suffering and everything is bad and why not just villainize popular kids because it’s easy and boring while we also hate girls because it’s easy?”AnywayExamples? Examples “Her booty shorts also barely covered her booty” Oh noooooo Heaven forbid Shorts covering an ass but not well enough to some rando’s standards? How will we live? How shall we survive? What will happen to humanity? “Really it was sort of refreshing to have a boy prefer her company to a girl like Isabelle’s” Just because you’re sooo insecure you don’t think anyone could ever want to hang out with you doesn’t mean you need to bring other girls down in an attempt to feel superiority in place of confidence and self love Asshole “Of course Isabelle was up for it She'd probably even eat carbs for that amount of attention” Whoa cool An assumption of a girl’s dietary habits based on her physical experience used to slut shame her in this instance and call her an attention whore How revolutionary Even the sexism in this book is tired and overdone “She refused to be one of those girls who gave up on everything they'd been planning simply because a boy entered the picture” Everyone please don’t forget the fact that girls come in types I cannot stress this enough Girl personalities are downloaded pre formed from a web interface and we only have amazing heroes like Dimple to protect us from all the attention starved non carb eating banshees in too short shortsJust kill me Take me out of my goddamn miseryTHE DIMPLE THINGOkay so I think this book is trying to do Something And that something is flip gender roles specifically as they typically exist within the genre of the young adult contemporary In this book the male character Rishi is romantic and looking to be in a relationship while the female character Dimple is ambitious career motivated and trying to stay away from loveDimple is also very cold Even mean And people are suuuper upset about that But how much of that Dimple hate is coming from the fact that she’s acting in a way we expect from male characters?Don’t get me wrong I don’t like the “mean but it’s okay because they love you so much” trope But I call it out whenever I see it I don’t like it in the Will Herondales either There’s nothing wrong with feeling that way We’re societally conditioned to balk when we see women act in traditionally “masculine” ways But likebe aware? Because that doesn’t mean it’s greatRISHII don’t really have that much to say here actually I just didn’t want to break up all the fun bolded subheadingsI just hate Rishi He is a lil creepy weirdo and so obsessive and emotional and boring That’s really why I hate him He is SO BORING Stop fawning over your own love for one goddamn second and I don’t know Punch somebody? Up the ante somehow GodTHIS RELATIONSHIP IS HORRIBLEOkay so Dimple hits Rishi all the time? And he constantly worries about whether he’s going to make her angry? And just takes sht from her constantly but if he’s even the slightest bit less than perfect she will genuinely actually physically hit him or get mad at him or yell at himAlso Dimple takes Rishi’s sketchbook out of his bag reads it and sends it to an author he likes even though he expressly reuested none of that happen No apologies occur Rishi thanks her later Because gross invasion of privacy is such a rad tropeI mean Super unhealthy no? But also just like not even fun to read lol Like this book is so bad I cannot stress that enoughGENERAL STUPIDITYThis book is also justsodumb On so many levels It’s very nearly impressive Here are some examples of its masterful handling of different types of its own idiocyBAD HANDLING OF ACTUAL ISSUES Dimple rants about all the expectations placed on Indian American girls andRishi’s responseis justwell this “He laughed ‘That does sound annoying” AmazingDO YOU REMEMBER YOUR OWN DESCRIPTIONS At one point Rishi is described as “stretching his long legs out in front of him” Um Boi is 5’8 If a boy who is lit er ally five feet and eight inches tall is now “long legged” then when converted to girl numbers my legs are flesh skyscrapersSO CRINGEY “Dimple crossed her arms and cocked her head in a come at me bro pose” I don’t even need to say anything about this one But on an unrelated note can someone come pick me up? I was hospitalized for cringing so hard after reading that line and I can’t leave until someone signs me outCONSISTENCY PLEASE IT’S ALL I ASK FOR Literally one moment in this book Rishi’s dorm room is so small that when he’s sitting at his desk he says he is JUST AS CLOSE TO DIMPLE AS HE WOULD HAVE BEEN SITTING NEXT TO HER ON THE BED and the next it is so CAVERNOUS so LUXURIOUSLY LARGE that Rishi and his little brother get into a screaming match within its massive dimensions without even seeing her I pray for the sweet oblivion of deathWHAT KIND OF INTIMACY At one point Dimple and Rishi lol I typed “Dishi” I am so tired this book is physically exhausting are making out In a public space And they touch each other’s backs Which is incredibly PG Not even PG 13 But apparently this moment is so unbelievably hot that they immediately have to have a conversation about whether they should fck or not WHATEVER FOREVERBottom line I should have expected to hate this book However wow I really did not expect to hate this book Do not make my mistake It is bad PRE REVIEWNo yeah you guys were right That wasnot goodBut I stand by what I said on the iced coffee issueReview to come CURRENTLY READING UPDATEI AM FURIOUS is that literally the iced coffee scene you've all been crying bitter bitter tears of rishi pity over??? are you KIDDING MEif a strange dude came up to me in a strange city and said i was his FUTURE WIFE and he was so excited for our LIVES TOGETHER i would freak the fck out dude honestly my only comment on this crown jewel in all of your negative reviews is that dimple is a GODDAMN BADASS for throwing her iced coffee at that tiny creep i wish i had the balls to do that when strange men say strange thingsin conclusion WHAT THE FCK ARE YOU GUYS TALKING ABOUT EVER
