I Want to Read It (45): When Dimple Met Rishi

I Want to Read It, a hybrid between WLW (or WOW) and what's on my to-be read pile. Well, instead of focusing just on books I would like to acquire, I will be using it to feature books that I just want to read. From the one's I want to buy to the one's sitting on my TBR at home.

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon, May 30, 2017. Published by Simon Pulse. Source: Wishlist.
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? 

Even though my last "contemporary" read was, well, a dud, I'm contemplating giving When Dimple Met Rishi a chance! 

I may not read contemporary books all that often, but between the cover, which is darling, and the synopsis I admit that my curiosity is indeed piqued. It looks and sounds like a lighthearted, yet not vapid, read...besides, I'm really curious as to how things will play out between the two since they both have different goals, in regards to arranged marriages. It just sounds like a fun read!!

I'll definitely be stalking my library's newly acquired list to see, and if need be suggest, if they purchase a copy.

Are you planning on reading When Dimple Met Rishi?
