Whenever I want a fun or heartfelt summer contemporary read, I always seem to find myself graviating back towards Morgan Matson. Her recent novel, Save the Date is such a fun romcom involving a wedding, constant disasters, and how families can come together during stressful situations. I flew through this one, and it made me laugh so hard.

I feel bad dnf-ing this because I won it courtesy of the Goodreads First Reads program. But the story just isn't grabbing me, and I'm over a hundred pages in. Normally I LOVE stories about weddings and big families, but the family in this novel is an upper-middle-class white family who (at least from what I've gleaned so far) have lead pretty sheltered, humdrum lives. It serves to make them less sympathetic and more of a New England cliché. And they all have really bland personalities, which is the real killer here. They also seem kind of... rude? To add another pancake to the stack of boredom and irritation, everything that has happened at this point in the novel has been too true-to-life; I've just been reading about the various mundane activities of a bunch of characters I don't care about. It's my fault for having such high expectations, but this isn't the madcap, yet heartwarming wedding plot I'd hoped it would be.

Save the Date makes you laugh along during all the hilarious drama and sympathise with the characters during the sad parts. I loved the different personalities of the family and all the eventful moments that happened in just a few days. Morgan Matson writes with humour and sincerity in a way that makes you feel like you're listening to a friend and once again, like her previous books, it leaves a glow in your heart.

Save some time this summer for this entertaining tale about a family wedding. We view the festivities from the perspective of Charlie, the youngest sibling. The cover is perfect. It seems like everything that can go wrong, does -- and we have a front row seat as Charlie attempts to pick up the pieces so she can have the perfect family weekend that she has been anticipating. In addition, her mom's comic strip (based on their family) will end with the last strip appearing in papers the morning after the wedding. Never a dull moment in this book.

I love pretty much everything Morgan Matson writes. This is a lovely addition to her work, which focuses more on family dynamics and less on romance than her other books. The hi-jinks are ridiculous and fun to read about.
