Save the Date Reviews
It was all about a wedding which is my jam so I loved reading behind the scenes of one. I also enjoyed how it mostly centered around the Grant family & the complexity of the relationships between them all.
I’m not going to lie, this book annoyed me at times. Mostly the situations in it really. Almost every situation if something could go wrong, it did...big time. It often reminded me of some movies where crazy situations keep happening which give me such bad anxiety honestly. 🍰
"How was it that you only fully realized what you had when it was gone? And I knew there would be new friends, new experiences, maybe even amazing adventures ahead of me. But I felt like I needed, for just a moment, to appreciate what I was - what we all were - leaving behind."
Save the Date was such an enjoyable, comfy read. The Grant family was the kind of family we'd all want to be a part of. They were funny, imperfect, loving and so real. It felt like I was in their house the entire time ...more
This cover is literally the cuuuuutest.
With that being said, I don’t think I have too much to say about the plot. I did find the protagonist to be irritating for a lot of the book. However, the lesson she naturally learns by the end of the book is wonderful. Character development is on point, like always, from Matson. Even though Charlie was both blind and judgmental at the beginning of the book, I love that she is able to learn from her mistakes. Her growth is so organic. She certainly sees mo ...more
Will read/buy anything she writes
Another great coming of age story by Morgan Matson
Not as well-developed as the Unexpected Everything (my review) or as soul-searching as Since You've Been Gone (my review) BUT nevertheless a fun and relatable story, full of jokes, family imbalance, growing up and romantic interests.
What is it about?
Charlie Grant has been looking forward to her sister Linnie's wedding for a very long time. Her best memories are those with her older siblings, but since they've all moved out, it's hard to find al ...more
I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. So many amazing books being released this summer and this made the perfect light, fun read. I went into it expecting somewhat of a romance, because the other MM books I’ve read have had that touch of romance, but it turns out this book is focused much more on family. And I truly loved the way SAVE THE DATE turned the Grant family inside out, exposing all their scars, as they prepare for the wedding of the oldest daughter.

I wanted this book as soon as I saw the cover. Naturally that meant I was denied an ARC and had to wait for the library to listen to another of my “please sir, may I have some more” requests for it to be purchased. I went into Save the Date hoping for something reminiscent of this . . . .
Without so much of this . . . .
But with some of this . . . .
And that’s pretty much what I got so YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!
This is the story of the ...more
I loved this SO much and I am very emotional. I think it might’ve knocked Amy & Roger from my #2 spot of favorite MM books.
I won’t really talk in depth about much to spare anyone the waiting but I LOVED the characters, the big family, and all the hijinks.
SO MUCH GOOD STUFF.
Will probably reread and do a video review closer to when the book releases in June.
