The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

Unexpected EverythingThe Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

There is nothing like sinking into thick Morgan Matson book on holiday. Her seemingly effortless writing is smooth and flowing and she gets right to the heart of her characters. I was sucked into the story and floated away for a few days wanting the book to never end – although 519 pages is a pretty hefty book, it was over too quickly.

And it had puppies, lots of them all over inside as well as on the cover. Talking about the cover – it is so happy and summery and fun. Although how is she going to hold an ice-cream cone and six dogs on leads? Maybe the ice-cream truck was just for show. Ice-cream should never be just for show. Especially not salted caramel ice-cream.

Back to the story… Relationships. That’s what was all about. Relationships with friends, family and romantic others. Especially nerdy book-loving author boyfriend material. But it was the focus on friendship that I really loved. I always wanted a big group of friends to do stuff with so it was nice to be part of one for a while.

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.   — Abstract from Goodreads.com
