Aspiring filmmaker and wallflower Twinkle Mehra has stories she wants to tell and universes she wants to explore, if only the world would listen. So when fellow film geek Sahil Roy approaches her to direct a movie for the upcoming Summer Festival, Twinkle is all over it. The chance to publicly showcase her voice as a director? Dream come true. The fact that it gets her closer to her longtime crush, Neil Roy—a.k.a. Sahil’s twin brother? Dream come true x 2.

When mystery man “N” begins emailing her, Twinkle is sure it’s Neil, finally ready to begin their happily-ever-after. The only slightly inconvenient problem is that, in the course of movie-making, she’s fallen madly in love with the irresistibly adorkable Sahil.

Twinkle soon realizes that resistance is futile: The romance she’s got is not the one she’s scripted. But will it be enough?

Told through the letters Twinkle writes to her favorite female filmmakers, From Twinkle, with Love navigates big truths about friendship, family, and the unexpected places love can find you.


Another stunning story from Sandhya Menon. I adored From Twinkle, With Love from cover to cover. It’s heartwarming, it’s real, and it’s empowering. Told mostly from Twinkle’s diary (along with blog posts, text messages, and emails), this book follows Twinkle’s growth from quiet geek to powerful director. Her character changes are honestly so real and down-to-earth, and I love her even more for it – even when some of these changes aren’t that positive. There’s a super light and sweet romance, and a wonderful exploration of family and friendships. Menon writes another stellar contemporary that YA readers need to get as soon as they can.

Be On The Lookout! | When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon


Be On the Lookout! is a feature highlighting special five star books that I’m trying to convince people to preorder, add to their TBR, or just be on the lookout for. It’s mainly a way for me to fangirl about the merits of a book outside a review, and hopefully make more readers aware of books that are not to be missed!

Today I’m highlighting When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon, which comes out on May 30, 2017 under Simon Pulse. With all the light, fluffy romantic comedies out there in the YA contemporary world, this one is NOT to be missed. I adored it from the first page to last, and was smiling about it hours after finishing. I also shoved it in my friends’ faces to read the blurb, but that’s neither here nor there.
