  1. I have had Since You've Been Gone on my TBR for a while now. I recently added Those Girls - I can't request it on Netgalley since I am in the EU and not the USA or Canada :-( Happy Reading!

    1. Yes, Since You've Been Gone has been on mine too. Hopefully I get time to read it right away. I got lucky in getting Those Girls. I got an email saying the first 1000 to click through would get it, so even though I'm in Australia I got a copy. I always get bummed when a title is only available to USA or Canada too. :-( Thank you and happy reading to you too!

  3. Omg, I have SO much love for Since You've Been Gone! It was one of my top favourites of last year! I want read Magonia too, although I've heard it being pitched as John Green meets Neil Gaiman and...my mind boggles. How is that possible?! hehe. I must read it. xD

    1. The John Green meets Neil Gaiman bit got me too, but I do see it. The MC being unable to breathe properly and slowly dying, plus the romance, is the John Green likeness and I'd say the magic and whimsy of it is like Neil Gaiman. It works. I truly loved Magonia! I'm so looking forward to reading Since You've Been Gone and even more so now! I'm sure I'll love it. :-D

    1. Me too! And you're so right. All of Morgan Matson's books have that perfect summer read thing about them. Happy reading to you too, Krystianna.

    1. I think if you like contemporary then you should add it. Have you read any other Morgan Matson books? I love them - as I do most contemporary YA - so it's right up my alley. :-) Happy reading to you too, Jay, and thank you!

    1. It's such a gorgeous cover! I can see why Magonia wouldn't be for everyone. I loved it. I think you do have to like a little magic and fantasy to maybe enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by, Lisa.
