Save the Date Reviews
This wasn't even slightly what I expected/have long wanted from this book.........but I think I liked it????
Like. I think I liked it a lot????
I DON'T KNOW BUT. EXCITING.
review to come!!
I bought a signed first edition of this book (good). But my copy had three stickers on the dust jacket (bad). Not a single one of those stickers came off easily and NOW THERE ARE TRACES OF STICKER GOOP PRESENT.
WHICH IS VERY, VERY BAD INDEED.
If the rest of this reading experience isn't a massive ...more
Never read a Morgan Matson book before but Wing-yee thinks I’ll like this so why tf not 😄
honestly i will probably like anything morgan matson writes.
this book is so stressful tbh. as the summary suggests, lots of things go awry before/during/after this wedding and it constantly put me on edge. but there's such beauty in the family dynamic, in the gradual way charlie learns to transition into a new stage of her life, and in the coming-of-age/stepping-into-adulthood activity of recognizing that an idealization is not truth.
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 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.
Youngest daughter Charlie is the narrator, ...more
Will read/buy anything she writes
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 and the family drama entertained me. But although it’s a humor ...more
"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
