Save The Date by Morgan Matson ~ Tour {Review}

I am so honoured and excited to be participating in a Morgan Matson tour!!! Fan-girling aside, let's get to business...

Welcome to my tour stop for Save The Date by the lovely Morgan Matson who writes EPIC books...just saying. My stop will consist of my review of STD (read the book to get the insider joke...ok maybe not "insider" "insider" but more "you'll get it"). 

Don't forget to check out the other tour stops as there's a DAILY giveaway up for grabs. (Tour schedule can be found at the bottom of this post or by clicking on the tour button above). Thank you Simon & Schuster Australia for organising this tour.

Buy It Now: 

Charlie Grant tries to keep her life as normal as possible. Hanging out with her best friend, pining for Jesse Foster - who she’s loved since she was twelve - and generally flying under the radar as much as she can.

But sometimes normal is just another word for stuck, and this weekend that's all going to change. Not only will everyone be back home for her sister’s wedding, but she’s also juggling:

- a rented dog that just won't stop howling
- an unexpectedly hot wedding-coordinator’s nephew
- her favourite brother bringing home his HORRIBLE new girlfriend
- fear that her parents’ marriage is falling apart
- and the return to town of the boy she’s loved practically all her life…

Over the course of four days Charlie will learn there's so much more to each member of her family than she imagined, even herself, and that maybe letting go of the things she's been holding on tightest to can help her find what really keeps them together.

~ Paperback Princess Blurb ~ 

Save the Date by Morgan Matson is about The Grants; a large and somewhat close family. Preparing for a family wedding; their bond is surely going to be tested. Will they have a lovely and beautiful wedding filled with laughter, joy and love, or will all the family tension bubble up before the wedding march begins?

Charlie Grant, the youngest of the Grant children fear change, and with the impending sale of the family home and her sister's wedding, she is determined to bring it back to the old-school days when her and her siblings were all in one roof and getting up to mischief together...their last hurrah in their childhood home. 

She had high expectations on how the weekend was going to play out...unfortunately reality does not always co-operate, and soon all her plans seem to be getting further and further from her reach. Will she find a way to reign in all the family and wedding drama or will she just need to find acceptance that the new chapter of their lives are beginning?  

I loved this book! It's got all the trademarks of a Morgan Matson book; it's beautifully written, plot is absolutely entertaining, true to life characters that will have you talking about them as if you really know them, love-filled story that will not only tug at your heart strings, but will grip it, pull it and demand your whole attention!

If there was such a thing as a book made for a person, this would've been mine. I'm an Event Manager by trade and am aiming to be a Wedding Planner, and I come from a large extended family that is very close, so I related to this book in so many levels.

The plot was truly entertaining to me. Fair warning though, be prepared to look crazy as you laugh out loud in public. This book had me in stitches so many times. The humour blended in so well with the characters and dialogue, it nearly feels like Morgan wrote about something she had watched, that's how realistic the characters, their relationship and their interactions were. 

Save the Date by Morgan Matson is a beautifully written YA contemporary that will truly appeal to your emotions. This book is filled with so much love, laughter, joy and tension, all bundled in a neat bundle that is the Grants.
