Today's #allthebooksdec prompt is favorite new author of 2017. I loved @sandhyamenonbooks' When Dimple Met Rishi, a fun read with depth and heart.

Of course I have to add more authors! Swipe to see more debut authors whose books I loved from 2017.

Who is a debut author you read this year?

Week two and I’m all caught up with where we are supposed to be. I’m really liking it! It’s what I read before bed and I find it so nice to fall asleep to these characters. What good role models for young adults to be reading about... I really am into these two teenagers. How are you all feeling about it this week? #BILAMRAL #BILAMdimple

I'm so excited about our new 'Tag Products' feature! So now you can just click on a candle in the picture and it will take you right to purchase it. Our Dimple & Rishi candle is one of a few different contemporary themed candles we have available right now. Currently there is also 'Lara Jean's Love Letters' & 'Emergency Dance Party'. Fangirl, To All the Boys I've Loved Before, and When Dimple Met Rishi are some of our favorite contemporaries. 😍💞

Good morning! Today’s #Yay2017 prompt is #warmglow so I’m going with the book that gave me warm fuzzies which was my fave YA romance of this year: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon. 👏🏼🔥❤️ I had to dig it out of a pile of boxes because my Library is being packed up for renovations! Worth it though, because a student immediately snapped it up for school holiday reading...... and you should too!

#30secondbookreview also #WhereIListentoAudiobooks - I finished When Dimple Met Rishi on audio this week even though I started it a while ago. I lost interest towards the end and took a very long break. It was well acted and narrated and I felt like it was a really fresh untold teen love story. However, I felt like both Dimple and Rishi were very one dimensional characters and this book feel into whiney teen territory for me... hard. ⭐️⭐️ .
True story: the iced coffee on the cover of the book made me want this iced coffee. .
This year I've realized I can't fly through a YA book as easily as I used to- I'm not mad about it! It just means my tastes have changed and I can move on to other reads. It's fun when you can see how you've grown as a reader like that, right?.

It's sad that I won't be able to reach my Goodreads goal this year. Still four books to go to reach 40. .

Will it be considered as cheating if I reduce it to 35? 😅

CAN’T STOP WON’T STOP! More books for our classroom library! #butter #whendimplemetrishi

“When you think about it, our families are back in India, about eight thousand miles away. And they’re still so intricately connected to us. We have their names, their rituals, their traditions. Their dreams sit behind our eyelids. I think it’s beautiful.” ☕️ 🇮🇳 But really, where was YA lit centered on American-born Indians when I was a YA? #weneeddiversebooks #sandhyamenon #whendimplemetrishi #insomniacon #quotation #nowreading #bibliophile #susreads2017

being early for brunch is no problem when you have a book as endearing as this one to keep you company!

a really random shot.

when dimple met rishi is such a witty book and i’m not the one for double POVs but this book... YES.

🌿 Good morning mariposas! Yesterday I finally got my @bookoutlet package that I ordered on Black Friday! Ah! And also I got my December books from BOTM too. So my book mail delivery was quite large and made my day brighter.
.
🌿 “When Dimple Met Rishi” by @sandhyamenonbooks has been a book that I’ve seen everywhere and I’ve been wanting to read it so badly. I’ve heard amazing reviews about this book and I’m so glad it’s in my possession. Have you read the book? What do you like/dislike about it? Can we also talk about how cute the cover is? I’m always a sucker for cover art! Lol 🖤
.
🌿 tag time: I was tagged by one of the #bookstabaddies to do the #bookishfunfacts tag! (I’m so sorry I couldn’t remember who, my screen shot didn’t show a name 😭):
.
🌱 a person or thing that inspired you to read// my uncle Ed inspired me to read. When I was little he would always find any occasion to buy me books and he would read to me all the time.
🌱 author who you’d want to write the story of your life// Alice Hoffman. Her writing style is amazing.
🌱 favorite snack or drink while reading// I just like to drink tea when I read. I can’t eat while I read because I’ll get crumbs in the crack of my book and that’ll make me mad lol.
🌱 one reading habit non-readers might find weird// that I get so heavily invested in characters and talk about them as if they were real live people lol.
🌱 one book from your country that everyone should read// Anything Sherman Alexie or Edgar Allen Poe.
🌱 how do you organize your bookshelf// erm.. what is organizing your bookshelf? Ahaha. My books are overflowing out of them, I can’t contain it anymore so it’s going to have to stay a mess for now.

In today’s stack we see a small, deceptively cute gremlin lurking in the shadows, plotting Rapunzel’s untimely downfall (which happened the shot after this one because he’s a considerate little monster who lets me get a photo that works before ruining everything 🧡)
It also just occurred to me that the last time this cheeky little rat was featured on my feed, he was named Noah and we thought he was a she, which in hindsight is hilarious but when we found out it was surprising to say the least 😂🙃 So I guess this is the photo debut of Django, who is most definitely not a girl but is so ridiculously cute either way 💜

"She was no delicate flower." ☕

Happy Monday morning book worms. Baby decided to be in the shot today...kinda. ☉ .
.
.

To cheer myself up from the disappointment of my last read, I've begun 'When Dimple Met Rishi', a contemporary YA novel centering on two Indian teens at war with tradition, parental expectations, and each other. .
.
The topic of arranged marriage is pretty familiar to me, and definitely a hard one to grapple with. I have seen the struggle of several friends I knew when I was younger with their families, and it was truly scary to hear about all the pressures placed on them to find a spouse, especially at such a young age. 😖

I'm rooting for Dimple, and already laughing at her gut reaction to chuck iced coffee at a creepy guy. That would be me. 😂

What has been one of your favorite YA novels this year? Drop the title below! 🌹 .
. **Edit: I want to take a moment to add that I in no way want to communicate intolerance or judgment towards arranged marriage as a cultural tradition. Many people enter arranged marriages with great joy and form a terrific bond that lasts a lifetime! I only mentioned my personal experiences with friends & acquaintances who were very much pressured or nearly forced into marriages they did not want/were not ready for as a contextual reference to the character Dimple's struggle with her parents in the novel. I desire to learn, expand, and share accurate knowledge and information about people's cultural experiences, not to perpetuate false myths or stereotypes. Any relationship entered into with mutual trust, respect, and consent is a happy, healthy partnership. 💕** #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #bookworm #womenauthors #booklady #bookish #librarybooks #yalit #youngadult #whendimplemetrishi

i was planning on reading ’a new hope - the princess, the scoundrel, and the farm boy’ by @alexbracken but then i decided to put it on hold and read ’when dimple met rishi’ by @sandhyamenonbooks first 💕 been eyeing the book for quite a while now 👀

Finally got my book in so I can now get started in the read-a-long with @bookitlikeamother for #whendimplemetrishi , and I should be able to get caught up. I was also thrilled that @reesesbookclubxhellosunshine chose #thelastmrsparrish as this month’s book by @livconstantine2 as I already have it and just needed to get to it. So many great choices to read this month, it’s going to be busy! #BILAMRAL #bilamdimple

I just felt like showing off When Dimple Met Rishi again since Sandhya Menon’s next book, From Twinkle With Love, looks ADORABLE. I can’t wait to read it!

It may not be the actual end of the year but it's that time of year where we all start trying to decide on the victor, the cream of the crop of books that we've read this year. These three are but a few of the ones I have loved quite a bit.

Chai and cat ready for today's reading session !

Finished this book 2 days ago and gave it a 3.5/5 (rounded up to 4 in GR). It is a nice and easy read with a happy ending. I love how it features diverse characters, family relationships and the importance of being your own person. Growing up a 'third culture' kid I love these stories. It is refreshing to see characters like Rishi and Dimple. Although I found Dimple to be kind of annoying at times. Also their instalove is kind of hard to believe but I'll allow it. I mean it is a sweet and light, first love-y read.

Read-a-Long check in #1: Hi everyone! Sorry I’m posting at night, typically I’ll post the check-ins in the morning. Here’s how you can check in each week: 1.) post an update to your own page (be sure to use the hashtags that are used at the end of this caption), and/or 2.) check in here by saying you’re still reading (or saying anything about this week’s reading that you want to)! •

Because this page is about my reading as a mother, let me be the first to tell you that my week didn’t lend itself to a lot of reading time. This weekend I’ll be taking my son to see his dad, so I’ll get some more reading time to make headway in the book. I’ll most likely not be following the schedule perfectly (it’s just a suggest anyway - a help to get through the reading in the allotted time). •

What are you thinking so far? #BILAMRAL #BILAMdimple

So excited to be #bookclubbin it with Wallace again over at bookitlikeamother! First chunk done and ready to discuss on Friday. If you're in a #readingslump I highly recommend checking her out. I've read so many amazing books that I would have never chosen for myself thanks to her #readalongs.

so today, some amazing things happened. one, THUG won two categories in the Goodreads awards! and two, I discovered a small door at school that opens up inside one of our unused trophy cases! a friend and I went in and made faces at people as they walked by and it’s honestly my new fav place and thing. 😂🙌🏻

{#decinbooks17} day 5: fav 2017 debut authors. Angie Thomas and Sandhya Menon are super sweet and seriously talented! both of their debuts are some of my all-time fav contemporaries. I know there are more authors I could’ve chosen, but I couldn’t remember any more because I got so many books from the library. who are some of your fav debut authors this year? ❤️ (I think a lot of other people have used that question lol oops.)

I didn't take my book {outside} today bc it was rainy and cold. We're getting snow tonight and I'm unhappy. So here are my trees with my current read 🤓📚 .

PB and I are having a blast by the pool and in Taman Bunga Begonia.

The swimming pool is a beaut! PB thought so too.
The garden is a gorgeous place to see Begonias. If you've ever wondered what Begonias look like, come and visit!
Ps. They have other flowers too and fun upcycled installments. Also some very cheery tomatoes, lol. You know what I mean if you've been there 😉

Our Marketing Assistant Jackie has chosen Sandhya Menon's When Dimple Met Rishi as her holiday #BookBuddies pick! To win this book & more, head to bookbuddies.ca. :: #WhenDimpleMetRishi #SandhyaMenon #Bookstagram #Bookworm #HolidayFun

This book was funny and adorable. I loved both of these characters because they are so relatable. At least for me. Especially Rishi. He wants to live up to his parents expectations. Then the fact that he loves comics and even created his own character.
4.5/5 ⭐

What is a character to can relate to? •

Fog on her glasses from the still steaming tea, a book in her hand as she casually reads. A catch in her breath as the climax grows near. She's deaf to the world: the book's all she can hear. She's completely lost now, or perhaps she is found in this strange paper world that's far from the ground.

Here’s what I read in November! I also read two for school but I couldn’t include them, so in total it makes 13 books! Many of them are really good, my favorites are One Of Us Is Lying, Turtles All The Way Down, Warcross, Eliza and her Monsters and Dear Martin.
What have you read in November?

Finally copping this! #whendimplemetrishi #weekendreading #YA

When Dimple met Rishi av Sandhya Menon är en sockersöt YA om ungdomskärlek. Dimple är 18 år och hennes mamma är besatt av att hon ska hitta en I.I.H. - Ideal Indian Husband. Dimple däremot är mest intresserad av att programmera. På en sommarkurs träffar hon Rishi, en rik indisk pojke som är fast besluten att gifta sig med henne eftersom hans föräldrar och Dimples föräldrar har kommit överens om att det vore det bästa.
📖
Dimple är en cool tjej som vill utveckla appar. Tyvärr får det inte en så stor del i berättelsen. Något som däremot ges mycket utrymme är Rishis intresse för serier. Jag läser inte så mycket YA så jag blev lite chockad av hur tillrättalagt allt kan vara och hur få slutsatser läsaren själv förväntas dra. Allt står i boken. Det är gulligt och romantiskt och förutsägbart så det ryker om det. Pluspoäng för några girl power moments.

Jag lånar gärna ut den till er @tovedahlen och @sittinginthekitchensink. Det kan vara Eng 5-boken vi letar efter ✊

Long time no post, just because life gets in the way for all of us sometimes. What are you reading this fine Saturday? I dove head first into this lovely book, and now I'm wishing I'd bought it instead of borrowed it. I really should try more contemporary novels, I usually enjoy them. Just romance....🤢 Not my favorite cup of tea. But this book is hilarious. Loved the coffee scene😂🤣

Weekend reads ✌🏽

Good morning! Today’s #Yay2017 prompt is #warmglow so I’m going with the book that gave me warm fuzzies which was my fave YA romance of this year: When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon. 👏🏼🔥❤️ I had to dig it out of a pile of boxes because my Library is being packed up for renovations! Worth it though, because a student immediately snapped it up for school holiday reading...... and you should too! It’s such a great romance novel with plenty of diversity, girl power, and fun will-they-won’t-they antics 🤷🏼‍♀️🙏🏼 #whendimplemetrishi #sandhyamenon #yaromance

IT'S DECEMBERRRR!! 🙌🙌
.
.
And talk about kicking off the month with a bang -- Melbourne is at the start of a Summer rain weekend! And I mean full-on grey clouds, heavy storms and flooding! I guess 🎅 got my letter early about keeping the Aussie heat away for as long as possible! 😂
.
Now. Let's crack onto December challenges! I'm joining @bookisglee #decinbooks17 challenge, and @thereaderbee/ @loriimagination #allthebooksdec challenge. Go check their posts if you're interested in joining in as well! 👍😉
.
.
Day 1 of #decinbooks17 - ANTICIPATED DECEMBER READ
.
Day 1 of #allthebooksdec - DECEMBER TBR
.
This is clearly for the prompts' sake because I've given up on following TBRs months ago! But I am excited to read these books and December is my fave reading month what with the holidays coming and all 😆
.
I've been in Fae withdrawals since ACOWAR so #AnEnchantmentOfRavens is perfect timing.. and also because I know a new ship will be sailing after I read this one! .
.
I've been in a contemporary book mood since reading Simon so #WhenDimpleMetRishi and #EverythingEverything are included!
.
I love fairytale inspired stories and retellings..you guys know. #Hunted has been in my tbr for a while and I'm looking forward to reading it. .
.
And finally... #ADarkerShadeOfMagic -- I seriously need to cross off Schwab from my new authors list! It's frigging sad really that I haven't done it already! 😯
.
.
💬 What's your first read for the month?
.
.
.

So I set out on a mission to read new authors and I've been surprised by how much I've enjoyed some new YA authors I've come across.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mini reviews:
Sandhya Menon's When Dimple Met Rishi was a short, sweet and totally relatable read about an indian computer geek trying to achieve her dreams, and the impact of growing up in an Indian household and trying to make your name in the modern world.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon addresses serious issues like immigration, and residual racism. The main characters and their contrasting attributes complimented the story but I couldn't fully wrap my head around the insta-romance. Maybe I'm too old for it.(I'm crying on the inside after having said that😆) I really loved the theory of multiverses.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Next, Becky Albertialli's The Upside Of Unrequited which was overhyped for me but an entertaining read nonetheless. It had great representation and diversity in its set of characters, discussed anxiety and body image issues but the general story was kinda plain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now on to the books I absolutely adored with every fiber of my being - The Wrath and The Dawn and My Lady Jane. The first is inspired by the classical 1001 nights which will leave you bewitched and craving more and the second is a fictional recount of English history which will leave you laughing till your sides hurt. The common denominator in both these tales is the presence of a strong female protagonist who won't bend her ways and ensures the people around her know she is a force to be reckoned with, capable beyond measure. These women, who have found themselves in times and environments that consider them lesser, have stayed headstrong, passionate and often times become saviors during dire times and I can envision the three of us being our own version of the power puff girls.😆 This, the magical elements and the spell-binding romances which made my heart dance instead of inducing insufferable eye-rolls, left me wondering why more people haven't read these delicious books yet? And on a side note, where can I get myself a Khalid or a Gifford? ✨
