Morgan Matson has been one of my favorite authors for a really long time. I first fell in love with her writing when I read Amy & Roger's Epic Detour, then I read Second Chance Summer, which quickly became on of my favorite books, so I was really excited when I heard about this new book.
I was so excited when I got my copy and I wanted to start reading it right away. I was definitely not disappointed.
One of the things I loved so much about this book, was the use of both the present moment and the flashbacks. I felt like they were definitely needed, because it allowed us to get to know Sloane and understand Emily's friendship with her. I really loved how the flashbacks tied in with things that were happening to Emily in the present moment.
Another fantastic aspect of this book was the inclusion of playlists. I loved that in Amy & Rogers and I loved it here.
The characters in this novel were also all fantastic. From main to supporting, I loved everyone and everyone played an interesting role.
I especially loved the relationship between Emily and Frank. I liked how this was played out subtly, and it didn't overshadow the list and everything connected with that.
The list itself was great, there were some interesting things on there, and I really liked that each chapter dealt with a different part of that list.
I also loved how by working on the list, and making new friends with Sloane out of the picture, Emily was able to make a lot of really great character growth.
All in all this is a fantastic read, and I highly recommend not only this book, but Morgan Matson's other work as well.

I loved this. I loved Emily, I loved THE LIST - I really want someone to do a list for me!

And Frank Porter you make me swoon. Frank is sweet, he's funny, he's handsome, he's summer and he makes me giggly all in equal measures.

Most of all I LOVED the relationship between Sloane and Emily - I love a book with a REAL friendship in it, and this friendship just spoke to me - I could relate to it SO MUCH.

BRILLIANT.

I received Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson from, Simon & Schuster Australia in exchange for a review. This has in no way influenced my thoughts and feelings on the book.

Since You’ve Been Gone is the second Morgan Matson book that I have read. A couple of years ago I read Second Chance Summer and absolutely treasured it to pieces. Let me tell you, I felt the same way about Since You’ve Been Gone.

I love Matson's writing style. It draws you in and is entirely stunning - the way that she writes is incredible.

Since You’ve Been Gone shadows the story of Emily as she’s on her journey of completing the to-do list that her best friend, Sloane, left after she disappeared. Before Sloane, Emily was shy, didn’t do crazy things, and she barely talked to boys. Sloane brought her out of that shell though. With Sloane now off the face of the earth she leaves a list in her place, which would see Emily do some of the craziest things she has ever done.

I really do love Emily, and I really did connect with her more than I could have imagined. I found that Emily and I are really alike in characteristics, maybe it was just me and I could be all wrong but that really added to my reading experience.

I loved the whole concept of Since You’ve Been Gone. The idea pulled me in from the start and just kept pulling me further and further in. As soon as I started reading Since You’ve Been Gone, I could not put it down!

I loved going through Sloane’s list. The reader is able to witness Emily’s highs and lows, watch her as she becomes stronger and more independent. You were also able to see Emily not rely on Sloane like she did before.

Since You’ve Been Gone is one of them books that I was highly excited for and it certainly didn’t disappoint!

The story follows two best friends; Emily and Sloane who have practically been attached to each other for the past two years. They do everything together and they’re constantly texting or calling each other when they’re not, so when Sloane and her family disappear Emily suddenly doesn’t know what to do anymore – she’s lost without Sloane. All Emily has got from Sloane is a list of ‘to do things’ that Emily is supposed to do over the over. The list includes things like apple picking at night, dance until dawn, hug a stranger, kiss a stranger – yep, the list goes on. But while Emily is out experiencing all this new things – including striking up a friendship with Frank Porter, Emily can’t wonder where Sloane is and she’s on a mission to find her.

Morgan Matson is one of them authors that knows how to write fun and lovable summer reads and Since You’ve been Gone is simply the perfect summer read – full of drama, hidden secrets, first love and a journey about self-discovery. What’s not to love?

With a bit of a slow to star, the story picks up after a handle full of chapter and soon, it was very hard to put this story down because I couldn’t wait to unravel the mystery of where Sloane had gone. I really enjoyed the set up to Emily and Sloane’s friendship, the way Morgan gave us that little bit of insight just a little bit of a time. It definitely added to the excitement of the story. But I think what stood out for me the most were the moments that Emily and Frank had together. Yes, I did like Emily and Sloane’s friendship but I felt that Emily and Frank together we’re just too cute to ignore.
