Reviews Save the Date

  • Lola Reviewer
    Morgan Matson didn’t write a book… She wrote a movie.Truly, this content belongs on a huge Hollywood screen. I can easily picture myself laughing out loud at this wedding fiasco… at the movie theatre.It’s definitely unrealistic. The thing is, I don’t at all mind producers stretching reality thin, but when authors do that in my contemporary reads, I get annoyed.Fortunately, it is not all unrealistic. The characters very much feel real an...

    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.

    Save the Date is absolutely wonderful. it's funny and touching and just... wonderful. I love the focus on thr Grant family, and it was really cool to see the dynamic among the family as a whole unit as well as in smaller groupings. And all the wedding hijinks are amazing. Full review to come!Pre-review:I can't make this stupid gif load correctly, but to quote Tom Haverford: "This is America. I want it now!"

    Beautiful. One of my favorite contemporaries in recent memory. This is Morgan Matson's best.I LOVED the crazy Grant family. Their dialogue and personalities are unmatched. I would have wanted a bit more depth from the parents or more interaction between them and a few of the kids, but I love every bit of what this family represents - their very real struggles and conflicts.Although I definitely favor Charlie, J.J. is the real MVP.PLEASE read this...
  • Andi (Andi's ABCs)
    I admit this was not my favorite Matson book. I loved the Grant family but I was not crazy about one member. That being said I honestly couldn’t stop reading it. I planned to, but I just couldn’t stop. And per usual with a Matson book I totally cried at one part. Review to come closer to release.

    This book gave me so much goddamn anxiety.

    Aw, so good! I loved the Grant family so much. Charlie was tough because she was stuck in her ways and definitely clueless about some things. There were a lot of tiny things that bothered me (like how obvious certain things were to the reader but not the family, the sheer volume of things that went wrong beyond a reasonable amount, or incorrect things about Connecticut haha) but obviously those issues will fade over time. My lasting memory of thi...

    I LOVED this. The Grant family has my heart, and this plot was hilarious and felt straight out of a feel-good rom-com. I got so many *~feelings~* because I saw a lot of my family in these characters.

    I received a copy of this book via Edelweiss+ in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!I think this confirms it - Morgan Matson is my favourite contemporary author. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of her books and this one is no exception. From here on out I’m going to refer to ‘Save The Date’ as ‘Save The Date’ because you know, acronyms.Family is the most important thing to me, so I get why I connected so much to Charlie, Save the Da...

    "Expected release date: 2018."*wails* BUT I NEED IT NOW!!!!
  • Jeraca
    I received this free eARC novel from Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review. Charlie, being the youngest of her 4 siblings, is so excited for her older sister's wedding because that means she gets to see EVERYONE in the same house for the first time since forever. And it's a good thing, too, because her parents have just sold their amazing house for something smaller since Charlie is going to college next year. But the upcoming weekend is goi...
  • Christina (Ensconced in Lit)
    I award this book 3.5 stars.First, I want to say I love Morgan Matson, and I totally fell head over heels for The Unexpected Everything, so my expectations were high. And I think my issues are largely personal, and this is just not my kind of book. It was still entertaining though, and worthy of a read.This book revolves around a family that is chronicled in a comic strip. The main character, Charlie, thinks her life and her family is perfect, bu...

    January 2018?! Why?????? I got so excited by the prospect of only a few more months to read the next Morgan Matson book. I stumbled across since you've been gone earlier this year and fell in love, and then read all of them as fast as I could I just couldn't get enough!! I cannot wait to read the next one and this sounds so cute!! Please move up the date!! May 2017 is much better. Why would they need to postpone it by so long?? :( :(And then it g...

    I adored this book. Morgan Matson is the queen of YA contemporary; she writes my favorite kind of stories about family and romance and friendship. Charlie and the Grants experience the ups and downs of the chaotic wedding weekend together (with Bill, the cute wedding planning assistant by their side), and I couldn’t have enjoyed their story more. SAVE THE DATE is a wonderful story that is chaotic, fun, and ultimately heartwarming.
  • Kaitie Leary
    Some of Matson's best work. The chemistry between Charlie and her siblings, the laugh-out-loud funny moments, and the focus on the importance of family relationships make this an amazing read. Any fan of Morgan Matson will be delighted by the story!*I was given an advanced copy by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    *Disclaimer: An ARC of Save the Date by Morgan Matson was provided to me by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not effect my opinion in any way.I really enjoyed this book. It was longer than I thought it would be, but in the end I was glad to have those extra pages to savor. I agree with the other reviewers who believe this would translate well to film. In fact while I was reading it, I honestly forgot at some...
