When Dimple Met Rishi

Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Also by this author: When Dimple Met Rishi, From Twinkle, With Love

A laugh-out-loud, heartfelt YA romantic comedy, told in alternating perspectives, about two Indian-American teens whose parents have arranged for them to be married.

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.

Why I’m waiting: It sounds adorable and diverse and swoony and fun and I want it. I’ve heard great things about this one so far so I’m hoping for a copy of my own soon!

The Glass Spare

by Lauren DeStefano
Series: The Glass Spare #1
Published on October 24th 2017
by Balzer + Bray
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy

A banished princess.
A deadly curse.
A kingdom at war.

Wil Heidle, the only daughter of the king of the world’s wealthiest nation, has grown up in the shadows. Kept hidden from the world in order to serve as a spy for her father—whose obsession with building his empire is causing a war—Wil wants nothing more than to explore the world beyond her kingdom, if only her father would give her the chance.

Until one night Wil is attacked, and she discovers a dangerous secret. Her touch turns people into gemstone. At first Wil is horrified—but as she tests its limits, she’s drawn more and more to the strange and volatile ability. When it leads to tragedy, Wil is forced to face the destructive power within her and finally leave her home to seek the truth and a cure.

But finding the key to her redemption puts her in the path of a cursed prince who has his own ideas for what to do with her power.

With a world on the brink of war and a power of ultimate destruction, can Wil find a way to help the kingdom that’s turned its back on her, or will she betray her past and her family forever?

Why I’m waiting: Fantasy!  I read DeStefano’s Chemical Garden series and I enjoyed it, especially her writing.  I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

What are you waiting for this week?

  1. I’m looking forward to both of these, too! When Dimple Met Rishi seems to be getting rave reviews from everyone; I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy (plus, it has one of my favorite 2017 covers). I’ve enjoyed Lauren DeStefano’s writing in the past, and I always love a good YA fantasy, so The Glass Spare sounds great, too.

    I’m excited for both of these. Mostly for When Dimple Met Rishi though. I don’t read a lot of contemporary but this just sounds good and the diversity!!
    I haven’t gone around all of Lauren deStefano’s books. I’ve only read Wither and Perfect Ruin and I thought that the concepts were really good but I never got a chance to grab the prequels and they just grew out on me. Picking up a new book form her would definitely be good 😀
