    This just sounds like such an adorable and heartwarming story. And if the story is as cute as the cover model, then I’m sold! Thanks for the great chance!

  2. cyborgcinderella says:

    This book sounds so incredible and I love being able to read more #ownvoices books. I also just want to read more diverse books. I can’t wait for this book!

  3. theshenners says:

    I’m excited to read this book because it features two Indian American teens and sounds super cute. 🙂

  4. fleurtings says:

    I’ve heard so many great things about this book! It seems like such a wonderful book and I’m so happy more and more own voices books are being published!

  5. xxbonnie says:

    I’m excited because I’ve heard nothing but praise of this book so far! It sounds like a cute read with much needed diversity! I’m excited to learn about a culture that is different from my own from an #ownvoices author. Plus, the cover is the best!

  6. Anxiousbookaholic says:

    The whole concept of the plot excited me. It sounds like a cute book. The arranged marriage idea is an old ideal but still in practice that isn’t brought up in YA that often. But given it seems to have a lighter view and the book seems a little comedic really gives me hope it’ll be a fun read. I don’t read enough diverse books and I need to fix that too. 🙂

  7. kmiki16 says:

    I’ve been hearing so much about this book! And diversity is a major plus.

  8. Rejuvenate says:

    This book sounded so cute!!!!

  20. aishq99 says:

    I’m excited for When Dimple Met Rishi because there’s always been a lack of diversity in contemporary YA and this book bridges the gap! Also, I happen to be from the same culture the main characters in this book are of so I’ve been genuinely excited to see how it’s portrayed. AND the concept of arranged marriage to me is fascinating. Not to mention the cover is ADORABLEEE.

  21. Diana says:

    Oh my goodness gracious.
    I love me some amazingly unique young adult books so to say I’m excited for When Dimple Met Rishi is an absolute euphemism.

  57. 2many2read says:

    I have been looking forward to reading this book for so long! I love reading about diverse characters and this book just sounds like so much fun!

  58. purplehrtd says:

    I haven’t read many books with Indian main characters, much less any YA novels about arranged marriages. The premise sounds really interesting and sweet!

  59. elgold02 says:

    I am looking forward to reading this because I need more diversity in my YA lit – it is extremely lacking! I have not read a book from an Indian perspective, and am very eager to. Besides, this book sounds positively adorable.

  60. Tash says:

    I look forward to reading this book because first off I’m a sucker for dual (or more) pov, I like being able to know on a personal level what the characters are thinking/feeling instead of just the MC. Secondly, I think it would be really interesting to read about Indian culture because a family who owns a gas station in my town are Indian and I’ve heard from people who are friends with the family that the son had an arranged marriage that didn’t exactly go so well. It’d be fascinating to read about something that a family in my own town went through and possibly get a better understanding and perspective of that. My grandmother is South Korean and was disowned by her parents for marrying my grandfather, but even then she doesn’t talk much about it besides just the simple fact her parents passed away still accepting her as their own for marrying an American instead of “their own”. I think this world all needs more books like this to get (hopefully) a better understanding of each other no matter what culture we come from. Overall I just think this would be just not an awesome read but also a special book to own.

  61. senkura says:

    I can’t wait to read such an adorable diverse contemporary!

  62. LilyOne90 says:

    This book just sounds so cute, its different and different is good, we need more books like this and I’m glad that authors are starting to write books like this :):)

  80. trosado says:

    That cover is the first thing that catches my attention. Gorgeous and fun! The synopsis cinches the deal.

  81. badmoodsis_03 says:

    I’m super excited to read this because it has a different perspective than what I usually read. It would give me more insight on their culture.

    • This one has been on my tbr list since I first read the synopsis! And there are a ton of reasons I can’t wait to read it! It’s an #ownvoices book! I can’t tell you how much I love finding and reading own voices books! The reason we read(or at least one of the reasons I do) is to learn about other cultures. So I love reading books where I can have fun while doing that. I’ve also being reading a lit of books with series subject matter so I could really use a great Romantic Comedy! And a YA Contemporary one is even better! I love the idea h of the parents supporting their daughter’s interest while trying to help her find love! This sounds amazingly sweet, romantic, and funny! And I can’t wait to read it! Thanks so much RivetedLit for the chance! 🙂
