Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson (book cover)

Review: Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

This book addresses death and the loss of a parent. That said, I can assure you that Second Chance Summer is not about death. It’s about living, coping, and embracing the people in your life while you can. Morgan Matson handles the topic of death and loss in a way that doesn’t oversimplify, generalize, or minimize the experience. She just seems to get it and write … Continue reading Review: Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

The Unexpected Everything is the perfect summer read; it’s fluffy, full of funny scenes, and has the best friendships and relationships EVER. This book doesn’t veer too far from Matson’s earlier books, although it’s a lot funnier than I remember her other books being. The main themes in the book are friendship (especially like in Since You’ve Been Gone!) and learning to be happy with life instead … Continue reading Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

All of these books are contemporary YA, unfortunately. I love contemporary YA but I feel like I absolutely need to branch out a bit with the genres I read. These are my top … Continue reading My Best Books of 2017 So Far [Top Ten Tuesday]

Review: Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour made me want to go on a road trip so much! This is the kind of road trip book I’ve been looking for! Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour started off a bit slow. Since the first few pages are kind of like an info dump, it took me longer to become invested in the story. Right from the start, it’s pretty clear … Continue reading Review: Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Since You’ve Been Gone is SO FREAKING CUTE! Honestly, this book is a perfect summer read! This is the first book I’ve read by Morgan Matson, but I assure you I just ordered another one of her books on Amazon five seconds ago. (The Unexpected Everything, in case you’re curious.) Since You’ve Been Gone starts off with our main character, Emily, figuring out that her best friend, Sloane, has … Continue reading Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
