Review of Unexpected Everything

 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?

I kept seeing The Unexpected Everything all over Instagram, so I figured I had to get my hands on it. I have been re-reading Harry Potter for the last few months and needed a little more lighthearted contemporary read as a diversion.

Likes:
  • The political scandal wasn't typical for what we see on tv and in real life. I don't know why this stuck with me so much, but it just seems like when there is a political scandal, it is always the same thing and is poor decisions on the politicians demeanor.
  • Andie was interesting. She was multi-dimensional and was a well-written character. Morgan Matson is really good at writing characters.
  • I really like the friendships Matson creates. She does a great job showing the real side, that it is not always rosey and perfect.
  • I liked the romance, it was imperfect, bumbled and a bit messy - but that makes it real and as perfect as it can be.
  • I love books that actually show a relationship with parents. I am not sure if that is because I am a 30-something reading YA with a different perspective, but family and a parental relationship is so important. I love seeing it grow and I love when adults admit that they were wrong.

Gripes:
  • No real gripes. There were a few times that the book was a little slow for me, but it was a nice, easy read.

My Favorite Drugstore Makeup

For quite some, I thought that I had to use high quality makeup because drugstore stuff was just not as good, didn't wear as long or would cause breakouts. In high school I did find that I was breaking out, but I am not sure if it was just the foundation I was using or maybe my more "mature" skin is handling products better.

After watching reviews and scoping it out at the store, I found a few drugstore products I have been really impressed with, especially for the price! Everything s under $10!
