    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.

    Charlie Grant is finally going to have her entire family under one roof. Her 4 siblings Danny, JJ, Mike, and Linnie are going to spend the weekend in the Grant home for one last time before her parents sell the house. Linnie’s long time dream of getting married in the Grant home is finally coming true but it’s not going to be easy and everything seems to have a way of going wrong. From power outages, to not having a suit, and that crazy alarm that won’t stop going off, they have more than enough

    Charlie Grant is finally going to have her entire family under one roof. Her 4 siblings Danny, JJ, Mike, and Linnie are going to spend the weekend in the Grant home for one last time before her parents sell the house. Linnie’s long time dream of getting married in the Grant home is finally coming true but it’s not going to be easy and everything seems to have a way of going wrong. From power outages, to not having a suit, and that crazy alarm that won’t stop going off, they have more than enough on their hands. The book start with the grant family reuniting but also with the news that their event planner was embezzling money and is no longer their event planner for obvious reasons.

    Charlie has to pick a college to attend, but she’s not sure she wants to leave home especially when her parents are selling the house, so she is considering going to the college in her town. Charlie usually gets wrapped up in her siblings because they’re together so rarely and she struggles to maintain her life outside her family.

    I like that this book focuses on family dynamics and how the wedding is coming together rather than focusing on the romance. The romance is only a small part of the book which is not a bad thing because this family is amazing and watching them have fun, make jokes, and the overall shenanigans is great. This family is just so adorable, each of their personalities mesh very well and watching Charlie reminisce the things that have happened in this house is wonderful. Linnie’s to be husband, Rodney, has practically been a part of this family since they started dating. The entire Grant family considers him family anyway and they all get along, so no trouble on that end.

    I loved that parts of this book was hilarious and loving and the other parts was serious yet brought the family together. The relationship between each of the siblings is mind blowing and watching this entire family have their own inside jokes, bets, insults, and nicknames is heartwarming. Just seeing this family function in their own unique way is mesmerizing and seeing them try to function through all the problems that occur in the span of two days is hilarious. I love that this book was so funny at times.

    I flew through this book, not kidding, I finished it in the same day I started it all while ignoring a ton of work I really had to do, so just another day in my life. This book was beautiful and heartwarming, I give it 5 stars and recommend it to contemporary lovers.

    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.

    - CLARK'S FRICKEN CAMEO I SCREAMED MY NERD BABY

    - wedding nightmares (this isn't a pro if you're the bride, but its hilarious to see that no matter how much you plan, weddings can never just

    )

    - the cover's so cute and fun

    - THE COMICS FEATURED i could honestly get more of that

    - the alaRM

    - seriously i loved the family dynamics sm its just so fun to see big dysfunctional families featured in ya

    - beagle

    - while i generally loved the plot and idea behind the book, the execution wasn't as dazzling

    - i found the plot draggggeeedddd over a course of 400 pages when it really didn't need to

    - i couldn't connect with our mc even tho she seemed to check all the boxes

    - (she was really idk, standoff-ish to her bro's gf and i was just not here for it- yes yes, character development and all, but idk it was meh for me)

    - the romance also didn't go for me. usually i adore Matson's love interests, but this one really seemed like a sub-sub plot and the whole love triangle dynamic had me uninterested

    overall, it was a really fun, summer, read and i would totally recomend it as something lighthearted and fun but i didn't feel like it was a book you could get lost inside

    3.5 stars!!

    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

    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 humorous story, I never actually laughed out loud.

    My family is small. It consists of me, my mother and my brother. So because I don’t have more siblings, let alone a sister, Charlie’s family fascinated me. I grew attached to them. This almost makes me reconsider my movie statement since a comedy movie never lasts long enough and I need to spend lots of quality time with this family.

    So I wouldn’t be opposed to a TV show if there’s enough content. What I’m saying is, I am not entirely pleased with this author—even if the storyline was quite entertaining—because I just know it in my heart that this is a story meant to be viewed, not read.

    i grew up with a small family - just my parents and younger brother. i do have a bigger extended family, but they lived so far away that i rarely saw them. so reading books about large family dynamics is always exciting for me because i get a chance to experience something unfamiliar.

    i grew up with a small family - just my parents and younger brother. i do have a bigger extended family, but they lived so far away that i rarely saw them. so reading books about large family dynamics is always exciting for me because i get a chance to experience something unfamiliar.

    and i think family is the one thing this book did right. i absolutely adored all of the interactions and banter between the grant siblings. there was a moment where i felt overwhelmed with all of the characters (there were a lot of them) and was worried there would be too many to even care about, but i loved the bickering, support, teasing, and love. it felt very real and genuine, which was refreshing because the rest of the book was quite absurd.

    i didnt hate it, but it got to the point where one bad thing happening after another (in the most ridiculous way possible, i might add) became too unrealistic to enjoy. i understand a faux pas here and there for comedic value, but this was literally one disaster after another. unfortunately, it just became more frustrating than it was funny, as it just felt all over the place with too much going on.

    overall, this was light and fun, in true morgan matson fashion. and even though the storyline itself fell short for me, the focus on what it means to be a family and appreciating those who love you was the books one redeeming quality.
