Can’t Wait Wednesday: “Save the Date” by Morgan Matson

Can't Wait Wednesday

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted Tessa at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Yay! It’s midweek again, and you know what that means. It’s Can’t-Wait Wednesday again.  This week’s CWW book is by an author who is on my auto-buy list, Morgan Matson.

32333338Charlie Grant’s older sister is getting married this weekend at their family home, and Charlie can’t wait—for the first time in years, all four of her older siblings will be under one roof. Charlie is desperate for one last perfect weekend, before the house is sold and everything changes. The house will be filled with jokes and games and laughs again. Making decisions about things like what college to attend and reuniting with longstanding crush Jesse Foster—all that can wait. She wants to focus on making the weekend perfect.

The only problem? The weekend is shaping up to be an absolute disaster.

There’s the unexpected dog with a penchant for howling, house alarm that won’t stop going off, and a papergirl with a grudge.

There are the relatives who aren’t speaking, the (awful) girl her favorite brother brought home unannounced, and a missing tuxedo.

Not to mention the neighbor who seems to be bent on sabotage and a storm that is bent on drenching everything. The justice of the peace is missing. The band will only play covers. The guests are all crazy. And the wedding planner’s nephew is unexpectedly, distractingly…cute.

Over the course of three ridiculously chaotic days, Charlie will learn more than she ever expected about the family she thought she knew by heart. And she’ll realize that sometimes, trying to keep everything like it was in the past means missing out on the future.


Save the Date is Morgan Matson’s seventh book (that is if you don’t count in the ones she wrote as Katie Finn because, psst, that’s also her 😉) The cover looks gorgeous! And the summary? Well, it looks like another fun, fluffy read, something that I can always count Morgan Matson on. And since this book is also set in the fictional town of Stanwich, Connecticut like Morgan’s other books, I expect cameos by characters from her previous books. It’s always nice to read about what they are up to even if it’s only a quick glimpse.

Save the Date will be out on June 5.

How about you? What soon-to-be-released book are you excited about?
