Since You've Been Gone - Morgan MatsonSince You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Hardcover: 352 pages
Publication date: May 13th 2014
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Add on: Goodreads

The Pre-Sloane Emily didn’t go to parties, she barely talked to guys, she didn’t do anything crazy. Enter Sloane, social tornado and the best kind of best friend—the one who yanks you out of your shell.But right before what should have been an epic summer, Sloane just… disappears. No note. No calls. No texts. No Sloane. There’s just a random to-do list. On it, thirteen Sloane-selected-definitely-bizarre-tasks that Emily would never try… unless they could lead back to her best friend. Apple Picking at Night? Ok, easy enough.Dance until Dawn? Sure. Why not? Kiss a Stranger? Wait… what?

Getting through Sloane’s list would mean a lot of firsts. But Emily has this whole unexpected summer ahead of her, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected) to check things off. Who knows what she’ll find?

Go Skinny Dipping? Um…

While I guess this book is more about discovering yourself, it really makes me want to grab my best friend and go and do some bucket list things! I enjoyed Matson’s Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, so I’m hoping this one is just as cute of a read. Also, I love cover/font.

It finally snowed here, so I thought I pick a book that had a summery feel because I’m still in denial haha.

What’s your WoW? Link us up!
