An underwhelming experience. I enjoyed Rishi as a character, and I liked that the book was diverse, but man oh man, was it instalove-y and just weird at times.

My rating: <a href="https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2204132081">4 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />

Sandhya Menon's, When Dimple Met Rishi is unabashedly adorable, the novel may be full of cliché's but they're unique in their own way. This novel is definitely one to pick you up and leave you feeling light and happy. <br /><br />As all of us bookworms are aware of, there is a horrifying lack of diversity in the YA genre (or any genre for that matter), so to read a novel detailing the cutest love story between two Indian protagonists was just so refreshing. Learning about how these characters navigate through their lives as children of traditional parents was fun, Rishi embraces his culture, ready to be married and start his life, while Dimple almost rejects this part of her family, choosing instead to focus on her education - which I adored. <br /><br />These two characters just fit so perfectly and I couldn't get over how much I loved them as a couple, I recommend this book whole heartedly to anyone who just wants a cheesy, but well written romance. I will definitely be picking up a book from Sandhya Menon in the future! <br /><br /><a class="jsShowSpoiler spoilerAction">(view spoiler)</a><span class="spoilerContainer" style="display: none">[ Also, this book just has the most cheesiest, clichéd ending, it was absolutely perfect. <a class="jsHideSpoiler spoilerAction">(hide spoiler)</a>]</span><br />
