Book Rewind & Giveaway: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
There’s a whole lot of special in Sandhya Menon’s When Dimple Met Rishi, so much so that a year after release, we are STILL thinking about it! We have two reasons to celebrate it this week – It’s FREE on audiobook and we have a special giveaway to celebrate one of our favorite moments in the book!
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
Category: Young Adult; Contemporary; Rom-Com
Publication: May 30th, 2017; Simon Pulse
The rom-com everyone’s talking about! Eleanor & Park meets Bollywood in this hilarious and heartfelt novel about two Indian-American teens whose parents conspire to arrange their marriage.
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 as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself.
The 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.

Sandhya, Kelly, & Christy Recommend: Starbucks in Honor of
When Dimple Met Rishi
In honor of the amazingness that is When Dimple Met Rishi, we wanted to share some of our favorite choices from Starbucks and grab your next drink on us (a giveaway!).
Sandhya’s Pick: Caramel Frappuchino
In Sandhya’s own words – I like sweet! The caramel frap is the perfect drink for such a sweet person. Pick this one up on a warm summer’s day and it’s a guaranteed happy day!
Kelly’s Pick: Chai Tea Latte
One of Kelly’s best qualities is her loyalty, and her Starbucks choice is no different. She’s a loyal chai tea latte drinker because she doesn’t drink coffee – the horror! 😱 So if you’re in the mood for something slightly spicy, slightly sweet, her drink of choice is the one for you.
Christy’s Pick: Starbucks Doubleshot on Ice

I had one earlier since I’ll be up all night writing about fascia👊🏻 • It’s definitely stronger than the usual drink I make, but the way almond milk and toffee nut work together👌🏻 • In my directions I say ask for sugar free vanilla and that will get you 3 pumps, if you want less strong of a taste definitely ask for more pumps of sf vanilla(I had 5😬) • Oh and if you don’t like toffee nut, feel free to sub in your other favorite flavor of syrup! • ✅HOW TO ORDER✅ • 1⃣Ask for a GRANDE Starbucks Double Shot on Ice 2⃣Ask for no classic syrup 3⃣Ask for sugar free vanilla syrup 4⃣Ask for only ONE AND A HALF(1.5) pumps of toffee nut syrup 5⃣Ask for Almond milk • It’s easy to come home from a long day of work, class, the gym, and intramurals and lay down on the couch. However, putting in the effort to make dinner, love on my doggos, and work on my goals is so much more satisfying. Just know that people are out there going through the same challenges you are, we’re all gonna make it✌🏻 -Alex☕
I am OBSESSED with all things by The Macro Barista but I am also a diehard Doubleshot fan. Tons of coffee, slightly sweet, and low in sugar no matter what make this the perfect choice for me. Just give me a venti. 👌
