If I could have plucked you / like a mussel from your shell / I would have swallowed you whole.

You are striking. Tough to crack. Worth every effort, you said. There's an art to eating a pomegranate; cut away the crown
until you can see the chambers inside—six bedrooms shining with ruby chandeliers. In a bowl of water use your thumbs to tear the walls apart.

Save the Date by Morgan Matson
I finished this book around midnight after reading about three hundred pages yesterday. This is such a fun book. It’s immersive and makes you forget that you’re reading.
I love Morgan Matson’s books, she has this super easy style that gets you back into reading even when you are in a reading slump. She’s one of my favourite contemporary authors because she makes it seem effortless to get back into reading. 
This book isn’t as focused on romantic relationships like other books by her, but the way Charlie’s family is described during the turmoil that is the days before a wedding. It was so interesting to see how Charlie kept running errands for her family and how she never complained once. I honestly think they were starting to take advantage of her. 
Linnie and Rodney’s wedding was almost a complete disaster. I’m really shocked that Linnie didn’t have a meltdown, I would’ve. Almost anything that could go wrong did go wrong, it was frustrating. The reader ended up rooting for the family and hoping that nothing else would go wrong. 
Danny was a piece of work to be honest. The way he interacted with Brooke really annoyed me, after all, he was basically ignoring her and she was at a wedding where she barely knew anyone. He does love his siblings and would do anything for them, but he clearly is obsessed with his job. 
JJ was absolutely hilarious, but I don’t really think he was actually helpful in the book. He just seemed to be there for the drama. I kind of liked Mike, I understand why he argued with his parents about the comic strip. His privacy was violated in such a profound way, his anger was clearly justified. 
I really couldn’t stand Jesse, it was clear that he was just using Charlie for sex. The poor girl was in love with him for such a long time, it was as if he were making fun of her by trying to have a one night stand. Jesse obviously didn’t care about her, he was a self-centered student.
Charlie was such a people pleaser, she kept saving the wedding and I don’t understand why she was the one delegated to do that. After all, she has parents who were supposed to be paying for the wedding and taking care of her siblings. 
Bill was so sweet and adorable. I loved the scene where he asked Charlie to dance with her in the supermarket. It was something straight out of a romcom that I would love to be a part of. He was so ride or die for Charlie and I loved it. 
This whole novel is fantastic and fun to read. My summer vacation can end now that I’ve read a Morgan Matson book. I would recommend this to anyone going through a reading slump.

In Accelerated Silence: Poems by Brooke Matson
In Accelerated Silence: Poems by Brooke Matson
Summary from Goodreads: “The thin knife that severed your tumor,” writes Brooke Matson in these poems, “it cleaves me still.” What to do when a world is split–terribly, wholly–by grief? When the loss of the beloved undermines the most stable foundations, the most sacred spaces, of that world? What else but to interrogate the very fundamental principles themselves, all the knowns previously relied…

winter is a prism in reverse / colors
resembling into white
snow that illuminates
the morning / kisses the dark
needles of pine / the season
before his death / it crusted the patio
like porcelain from the plates I split
against it
months later in my rage / all the delicate
flowers arranged in the jagged blue
and alabaster triangles / a kaleidoscope
— Brooke Matson, from “Elegy in the Form of Porcelain,” In Accelerated Silence
