Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
(This isn’t really a legit book review. As I said before, book reviews aren’t my thing, I only rate them though. So this post is more of my fangirling feels.)
I really wanted to read something like a feel-good book just to have a break from dystopian novels (esp after reading the third book of the maze runner trilogy which I was disappointed huhu) and I spotted this book from my tbr pile on Goodreads. Actually, the first thing that got my attention was the cover because it looks so rad! I tried to search for an ebook and luckily I found one.
This book was about love and friendship. For me, the characters were really relatable esp Emily. I love the fact that I got affected by this book and making me ‘kilig’ haha <3 <3 Definitely another character would be added to my list of fictional crushes and it is no other than Frank Porter hihi!
I loved everything about this book - characters, list, playlists, quotes, etc. I enjoyed reading this book and I can say that this is the perfect summer read!
Some of the quotes I love:
“It was like swimming under the stars, like sleeping outside, like climbing a tree in the dark and seeing the view. It was scary and safe and peaceful and exciting, all at the same time. It was the way I felt when I was with him. “Like a well-ordered universe.””
“She was my heart, she was half of me, and nothing, certainly not a few measly hundred miles, was ever going to change that.”
“All the stuff you can’t wait to get away from, until it’s not there anymore, and then you miss it like crazy.”
