Every once in a while, a debut novel defies the odds, hits us all right in the feels, and finds it way onto all the lists! Such is the case with a little book called When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon. Heard of it? Course you have, it’s everywhere! We’re so excited and pleased for Sandhya and this little book that could, and we hope you’re all eagerly devouring the extended excerpt we’re featuring right now! If all of the buzz and excitement haven’t already compelled you to start reading, here are seven reasons why you should to help push you over the edge.
If you’re a new fan of Sandhya, check out what we just learned: she’s ALREADY written her second book and you can add it on Goodreads right now! There’s even a short teaser description: “Menon’s latest contemporary YA follows an Indian-American aspiring teen filmmaker who finds herself caught up in family, friendship, and romance drama, narrated through the letters she writes to her favorite female filmmakers.” Awesome, right?! Of course, you won’t find a title or a release date or too much else, but at least you can make sure it’s on your radar when it comes out next year.
We picked up this little tidbit because Sandhya just started a blog and put up her first post a few days ago! Drop by for a visit here, and while you’re at it, why not sign-up for Sandhya’s newsletter too? 😉
