My Rating:

Goodreads Summary: 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?

My Review

I was looking for a perfect summer read and The Unexpected Everything delivered. Just look at that cover! It screams summer.

This book is for dog lovers, summer romance supporters, best friends, and anyone who appreciates a cute nerdy boy. The Unexpected Everything features all of these things and even more wonderfully perfect summer themes.

Andie has her summer all planned out. She has a prestigious summer internship all lined up and everything all planned out. Then her father becomes involved in a political scandal and all of her summer plans fall through. She is now scrambling to find a summer job, and her options are slim. Then she does something unexpected, and she has the summer of a lifetime. It was a whole lot of fun reading about her summer activities. Andie takes a job she never thought she would. She is forced to spend time with her once distant father. She falls for a nerdy (who I am sure will be your next book boyfriend) and wonderfully sweet guy. She goes on an unforgettable scavenger hunt, and other interesting adventures. There is a lot of cuteness, some laughs, drama, and learning what it means to live in the moment.

I loved The Unexpected Everything and highly recommend it to anyone looking for the perfect summer read. This one will give you the feels guaranteed, and probably a new book boyfriend to boot.


  1. I loved this one so much too! It was actually my first ever book that I red by Morgan Matson and after reading it I knew for sure that it wouldn't be my last.

    I plan to before the summer is over for sure :)

    1. You must read it before summer is over!!!!

  5. The Unexpected Everything has been my favorite book of the summer so far! I'm so glad that you loved it! Clark is definitely my new book boyfriend. :D
