    BLOG TOUR; Ten Things I Hate About Pinky ft. Book Review & Playlist

    I had actually posted my review of this book early in June before I knew that there was going to be a blog tour, so if you’ve read that, you may recognise the review posted here! I’ve taken that original post down, but I, safe to say, I love this conclusion to the Dimpleverse! I attempted to put together a playlist below (with added playlist cover!) and to no surprise, added in a bunch of Bollywood songs because, why not, right?

    review; there’s something about sweetie

    Title: There’s Something About SweetieSeries: The Dimple-verseAuthor: Sandhya MenonGenre: YA, contemporaryType: HardcoverPublisher: Simon Pulse Ashish Patel didn’t know love could be so… sucky. After he’s dumped by his ex-girlfriend, his mojo goes AWOL. Even worse, his parents are annoyingly, smugly confident they could find him a better match. So, in a moment of weakness, Ash challenges them to set him up. The Patels insist that Ashish date an Indian-American girl – under contract. Per subclause 1(a), he’ll be taking his date on “fun” excursions like visiting the Hindu temple and his eccentric Gita Auntie. Kill him now. How is this ever going to work? Sweetie Nair is many things: a formidable track…

    review; as kismet would have it

    Title: As Kismet Would Have It Author: Sandhya Menon Genre: YA, contemporary Type: E-Novella (sequel to When Dimple Met Rishi) Dimple Shah has a lot of opinions about marriage, but they boil down to this: It’s not for her. Sure, she loves her boyfriend, Rishi, but why does she need to validate that with an institution that has historically never favored the woman? Why go through all that hassle? Rishi Patel deeply disagrees. He believes in the power that comes with combining love and tradition, and when the time comes, wants nothing more than to honor those things in a huge celebration with his friends and family. He knows Dimple…

    review; when dimple met rishi

    When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more 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 aspiring web developers…right? Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because…
