I know you probably are kind of fed up with me for talking about Morgan Matson all the time but I just have to.. the time is there: It’s finally May and that means it’s #MonthOfMatson! I first heard about this readathon a month ago. I was searching through my YouTube and there was a video of Maureen Keavy, she unboxed The Unexpected Everthing by Morgan Matson (OUT TODAY!!) and she announced that there is gonna be another #MonthOfMatson this year. The first #MonthOfMatson was last year and it’s ofcourse a readathon (duh). If you attend it, you have to read all the books of Morgan Matson over the course of one month. Last year it was June, but this year it’s May its turn.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to attend to the one last year. The first book I read by Morgan Matson was Since You’ve Been Gone and that was in August. So this time, I’m super excited! And it’s actually even more fun because The Unexpected Everything releases today! The moment I’m writing this I’m still waiting for it to arrive… it should be here within an hour. PLEASE HURRY UP PACKAGE DELIVERY!
So for today I thought it would be nice to show you my reading schedule for this month. Normally I never do a TBR because I am the best in deviant behaviour but this month I’m quite positive!
Pieces Of You And Me by Erin Fletcher
Five years. That’s how long I’ve been gone. Since I left my best friend—the girl I loved—behind.
Five seconds. That was how long it takes to realize I am completely, utterly, screwed. Because now that I’m back, my childhood crush has turned into so much more.
Rylee has changed. We both have. And now I’m drawn to her in a completely different way. To her smile. Her touch. To reliving old memories and making new ones. To the happiness she’s always given me that I haven’t felt since I left.
But her friends are hell-bent on keeping us apart. My dad is one drink away from destroying both of our lives, and maybe I am, too. It’s only a matter of time before I have to leave again, and there’s nothing I can do to stop it. I never get a choice.
The one choice I can make? Stay away from Rylee. Because if I don’t, I’ll break her heart—and mine—all over again.
I planned to have read this book like two weeks ago but just like I said, I am the best in deviant behaviour so yes.. I’m still hung up on this book. So for now I’m just gonna read it inbetween some of the other books. Although I can’t complain, it’s actually a pretty fun read and I hope it will remain that way.
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
Andie had it all planned out. When you are a politician’s daughter who’s pretty much raised yourself, you learn everything can be planned or spun, or both. Especially your future.
Important internship? Check.
Amazing friends? Check.
Guys? Check (as long as we’re talking no more than three weeks)
But that was before the scandal. Before having to be in the same house with her dad. Before walking an insane number of dogs. That was before Clark and those few months that might change her whole life.
Because here’s the thing – if everything’s planned out, you can never find the unexpected. And where’s the fun in that?
Well, that’s unexpected, right?! (YES, pun intended) OFCOURSE! I have to read it as soon as it arrives at my door. I mean, I’ve been waiting for this book since August so I’m thrilled I finally got it. I expect to read this book for a week, because of its length. TUE is definitely a lot longer than Morgan’s other books. I am a slow reader, so if I have like five days to finish it, there should be enough time!
The Crown by Kiera Cass
Twenty years have passed since the events of The One, and America and Maxon’s daughter is the first princess to hold a Selection of her own. Princess Eadlyn didn’t think she would find a real partner among the Selection’s thirty-five suitors, let alone true love. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you… and now Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more difficult—and more important—than she ever expected.
The Selection series has sold more than 3 million copies and captured the hearts of fans around the world. This swoon-worthy final installment is the happily ever after they’ve all been waiting for.
Also a book I’ve been waiting for for so long is The Crown! It also released today, but since I read the series in Dutch I have to wait another day. I hope to finish this book soon after I finished The Unexpected Everything.
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
It was Sloane who yanked Emily out of her shell and made life 100% interesting. But right before what should have been the most epic summer, Sloane just…disappears. All she leaves behind is a to-do list. On it, thirteen Sloane-inspired tasks that Emily would normally never try. But what if they could bring her best friend back?
Apple picking at night? Okay, easy enough.
Dance until dawn? Sure. Why not?
Kiss a stranger? Um…
Emily now has this unexpected summer, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected), to check things off Sloane’s list. Who knows what she’ll find?
Go skinny-dipping? Wait…what?
It’s my favorite book of Morgan Matson (maybe in a week it’s TUE, who knows?!) so that’s why it’s the first one I’m rereading after TUE.
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
Taylor Edwards’ family might not be the closest-knit—everyone is a little too busy and overscheduled—but for the most part, they get along just fine. Then Taylor’s dad gets devastating news, and her parents decide that the family will spend one last summer all together at their old lake house in the Pocono Mountains.
Crammed into a place much smaller and more rustic than they are used to, they begin to get to know each other again. And Taylor discovers that the people she thought she had left behind haven’t actually gone anywhere. Her former best friend is still around, as is her first boyfriend…and he’s much cuter at seventeen than he was at twelve.
As the summer progresses and the Edwards become more of a family, they’re more aware than ever that they’re battling a ticking clock. Sometimes, though, there is just enough time to get a second chance—with family, with friends, and with love.
I actually didn’t read this book yet *slightly ashamed*, but I will soon! I’m so excited for this book, especially because of its story.
Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
Amy Curry is not looking forward to her summer. Her mother decided to move across the country and now it’s Amy’s responsibility to get their car from California to Connecticut. The only problem is, since her father died in a car accident, she isn’t ready to get behind the wheel. Enter Roger. An old family friend, he also has to make the cross-country trip – and has plenty of baggage of his own. The road home may be unfamiliar – especially with their friendship venturing into uncharted territory – but together, Amy and Roger will figure out how to map their way.
And last but not least, Amy & Roger’s. I choose this one to be the last because its such a fluffy read and it makes me feel happy, so it’s the perfect ending for #MonthOfMatson but also for May.
This was it! I really hope I get to read this books this month and I’m gonna do my very best to achieve it. So for now, what’s your TBR this month? And are you gonna attend the #MonthOfMatson?
