Nah son step aside and let these Indian kids have the spotlight.
You guys. I can’t even tell you how much I love Sweetie. She’s so good and such a lovely person. I loved how she saw herself and how she was happy with herself. Ashish took me a second to warm up to, but he was quite a marshmallow and I was quickly invested. And there’s such a great cast of secondary characters here: both Sweetie and Ashish have excellent friends and I’m hoping we’ll get more from the ...more
Honestly, how can I not give this book anything but 5 stars. Matter of fact, I would give it a million! Obviously.
I mean what more can you want from a book than for it to be extremely adorable and a swoon-fest along with an important message. This book is not just about a cute romance but it also digs deep into self love and worth. It teaches us we are enough the way we are. The society may create a gap between “thin” and “fat” but at the end of the day we are all e ...more
Review is up (finally) up!
** I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher (thank you!) in exchange for an honest review. **
4.5 stars. I really adored this book, friends! It’s easily become my favorite of Sandhya Menon’s body of work. I truly feel like this YA rom-com also has so much heart, and Sweetie and Ashish were both wonderful. Totally enjoyed it and cannot recommend it enough!
There's Something About Sweetie was so wonderful. Packed full of sweet and heartfelt messages about accepting who we are and being strong and independent while still being respectful of others.
I love not only the strong and powerful m ...more
"'Sweetie she's...she's like the other half of my jagged soul, you know? She's got the soft edges that fuse with my hard ones.' He shook his head. 'There's something about Sweetie. Something I can't explain.'"
There's Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon is her third YA contemporary rom-com, this one a sequel to When Dimple Met Rishi, her debut novel. There's Something About Sweetie follows the story of Ashish Patel, Rishi Patel's ~ cool ~ younger brother who loses his 'mojo' after his fi ...more
This book is inspiring and delivers an important message in an impressive way: love yourself as you are, don't change, you are beautiful inside AND out! I've never been fat, I've always had a hard time using this word because it's pejorative, but I've been bullied in high school because I was tall and thin. I'm not saying it's the same thing, I'm saying you don't have to be fat to be bullie ...more
There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon is the charming rom-com I have been waiting for since we first met Ashish in When Dimple Met Rishi. I adored the mix of cute content and a powerful message, and both Ashish and Sweetie are realistic characters. This is the perfect light and sweet read for a sunny day.
I’ve been a fan of Sandhya Menon for a while now, so this book was one of my highly anticipated for the spring. It follows Ashish, who is dealing with a ...more
We already know from the first book that Ashish is a co ...more
OMG!!! I loved loved loved every word of this book! Can I leave my review at that? Sandhya has been writing consistently amazing stories about brown girls and their happily ever after and it makes my heart very very happy. I feel like Sandhya Menon just gets what I want out of a feel-good book.
There's Something About Sweetie was extra special for me because I saw in Sweetie someone that young Nick could have aspired to be. She was amazing and I had so much admiration and respect for her. Sweetie ...more
Oh, and let’s count the other things I love too! 1) no bro culture or sex-focus. The male lead’s best friend ...more
The perils of an early read? Nobody to talk to!!
And this cover?? It's from such an awesome scene and just, ahhh!!!
Indian-American rep, fat girl rep, adorable romance and a hot and lovable love interest.
Sandhya Menon is definitely getting it all right.
So this book touched me in all the right places. This is the companion novel to When Dimple met Rishi. I read this last year and I lived it
So its about this girl called sweetie and a guy called Ashish. So sweetie is an Indian American plussize athlete who has always struggled with being accepted in the Indian community and also at home. She is the only child and her mother has this view that she can only be happy if she is thin.
