  • My brother opened the door of my room to find me in a sea of kleenexes, sobbing and crying my eyes out more or less like this. (But probably I was worse, I'm the ugliest cryer in the world. Seriously.)He blinked, saw the book in my hands and blinked again.He didn't say a word, just closed the door very quietly and walked away even more quietly.I think I actually scared him.---EDIT---My brother opened the door of my room to find me jumping on the bed and screaming like a banshee "OMG I can't beli [...]

  • Watch my interview with Morgan Matson here: youtube/watch?v=yVqHEI have a headache, a runny nose, I can't read the computer screen because my eyes are swollen, and my shirt is sopping wet from tears, so that can pretty much tell you everything right there.

And Henry is SO FREAKING GREAT.Reread May 25-30 for #monthofmatson Well my nose is currently stuffed up from crying so hard if that gives you any idea of how I feel right now. I really love Taylor's journey throughout this book and it's just great even though SO MUCH CRYINGReread June 14-15 for #MonthOfMatson.WELL this book always [...]

  • I love Morgan Matson books! But I didn't want to cry today 😥This isn't the best book of hers I have read but it was still good. There were a lot of slow parts, but maybe with what was happening in the story, we needed to slow down. Taylor, her mom and dad and brother and sister decide to go to their lake house for one last summer. Sob, I can't even think about the reason why. Anyway, they hadn't been back there for 5 years. Taylor's friends she left behind were mad at her. Things were differe [...]

  • I'm really surprised this book and I didn't get along! ButI was so bored, reading the ingredients for tinned pineapple would've been more interesting than this. (Believe it or not, there is actually more incredigents in tinned pineapple than just pineapple. Makes one wonderm. BUT I DIGRESS.) I really loved Since You've Been Gone (apart from where I have to sing the song in my head every time I say the title) and I was surprised that this just did NOT work for me. Lemme break down why I was so bo [...]

  • Tissue count: 3This book took me forever to read. It dragged a bit, which I felt was unusual because I flew through Matson's 2 other books. Although I did enjoy this one and it was definitely summery and made me wish I had a lake house, I'm really tired of Matson only writing about shy girls who never speak their mind or have confidence. It was really irritating in this book, moreso than her other two, and I found myself unable to relate to-- or enjoying reading about-- the characters. The entir [...]

  • honestly, the 12y/o version of the mc manages to have more of a love life than I probably will ever have (considering mine is non-existent). This book managed to make me crymorethan the opening scene of Guardians of the Galaxy (yes, I cry everytime?? IDEK why) which is like a lot. ALSO I have no idea why I picked it up when December is going to start and summer is clearly eons away. This was such a summery and beautiful read that it made me all kinds of warm and happy on the inside anyway. Minus [...]

  • This novel hit a little too close to home. I feel like not everyone will understand Taylor but I just I just felt like I was reading about myself. But she's not a particularly strong character here? Exactly.For me she was a strong one. Honestly, I love reading about strong female characters who don't give a shit about what other people think and who represent empowerment. Now, what I want to ask you is: "Do you feel like you're like that every single moment of your life?" I don't think so. It's [...]

  • Spoiler Alert: This book should come with a free box (or boxes) of tissues. Second Chance Summer just like the rest of Ms.Morgan Matson’s novels did not fail my expectations of a perfect summer read except this particular novel thought my summer reads are becoming pretty easy and so it decided to make me bawl out. Profusely. It’s impressive because I don’t think the novel is deliberately trying to make the reader cry. Yes the premise is very sad- about a family spending their last summer t [...]

  • Not sure how, but this was even better the second time around. It's now my fave Morgan book. Tears but such a good story. All YA contemporary needs to take a page from Morgan's book. She's gold. Loving #monthofmatson, even though I'm carrying it into June ;P

  • Posted to Almost Grown-up:WARNING: Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson is NSFW. That is… Not Safe For Work. And it’s not due to the usual reasons that things are deemed NSFW. Nope, no gratuitous sex in THIS incredible book. Second Chance Summer is of the ugly-crying NSFW variety. But we will get to that. I promise.Earlier chapters of Second Chance Summer may not be sob-inducing, but they pulled at my heart an equal amount.And there are a variety of reasons for that.First of all, there’s [...]

  • Okay, so, this book is bonkers long.I'm talking nearly-five-hundred-pages-and-isn't-that-just-goddamn-ridiculous long. I am of the belief that there is nary a contemporary on this planet that needs to be over 300 pages, and it seems like Morgan Matson, despite being the love of my life and joy of my soul, may be ignoring the letters and emails and faxes and Instagram direct messages I've been sending her on this topic.But I digress. I'll just say this book is way, way, way too long and move on.I [...]

  • When I picked this book up, I was expecting it to be a fun, happy read. But it wasn't and I wasn't expecting it to be so sad and depressing. I still loved the book and enjoyed the whole reading experience but I was not expecting what I read. Taylor Edwards is forced to cancel all her plans for the summer after her family discover horrible news about Taylor's dad. Instead of a summer packed with clubs and other things, Taylor's parents decided that they should visit their old lake house in Pocono [...]

  • "It wasn't until now, when every day I had with my father was suddenly numbered, that I realized just how precious they had been. A thousand moments that I had just taken for granted -- mostly because I had assumed that there would be a thousand more."An incredible story about second chances, loss and grief, and finding the courage you always knew you had. Morgan Matson is a master at highlighting the big moments that most everyone will probably go through in life and pinpointing the little mome [...]

  • I can't process my feelings about this book right now. I have never cried harder in my life reading a book. Granted, this is largely in part due to circumstances in the book paralleling circumstances in my own life, but I can't see how this book wouldn't move each and every person who picks it up. I'll admit: there was a moment in this book around the halfway mark where I was worried it was going to be my least favorite MM book and that I might actually give it 4 stars *GASP* The book had the hu [...]

  • Henry just stared at me, and I looked back into his green eyes, feeling the sudden urge to break into hysterical laughter, because it was beginning to seem like I couldn't turn around in Lake Phoenix without running into him.Second Chance Summer is a book that'll give you the courage you need when trying to stand up after falling; it'll give you the strength you need when defeated by the God of Life; it'll also give you the permission you need when following your heart.Second Chance Summer is a [...]

  • “The thing is that people only get hurt—really hurt—when they’re trying to play it safe. That’s when people get injured, when they pull back at the last second because they’re scared. They hurt themselves and other people.” A heart-felt, beautiful tale about family drama, childhood romance, and friendship that will pull your emotions.It's my first time reading a book written by Morgan Matson, and I could say that she's one of a kind. The first few lines of the book already told me [...]

  • 3.5/5 ♡ second chance summer was a story of beginnings and endings.of all the morgan matson books, this novel is probably my least favorite. not because i didn't like it or anything, i just felt there could've been more. taylor, the main character, wasn't my favorite because i couldn't clearly see her. given her situation, it's understandable to be emotionally distraught, but even after finishing the book i still don't really know who she is? some of her actions were also SO frustratingthough [...]

  • I really, really enjoyed this book. It brought my own memories of summers long past where my family and my best friend's family would go camping every summer. We'd always meet so many interesting kids there.I thought the main character was heartbreaking and annoying and flawed and realistic. Just like a teenager should be. I felt her pain through and through.Even though this book was devastating it just made me want to appreciate my friends and family more.

  • *4.5 HEARTBROKEN STARS* “A thousand moments that I had just taken for granted- mostly because I had assumed that there would be a thousand more.”So Remind me again why I thought that finishing this book during my lunch break at work would be a good idea??Because I'm crying my eyes out right now and my colleagues are in a panic because I suddenly started crying lol. Review coming soon!

  • I couldn't be any more happy right now if I were that dog. It has a synopsis and a title and a release date! Now all we need is a cover.

  • I'm waiting until this goes on BookOutlet, then it'll be mine. Love her writing!-----Another Morgan Manson read and I enjoyed it! So lots of just every day musings and such but I believe it's to develop characters and their relationships so I didn't mind. Though it was boring to say the least. I still had to know what happened at the end and I was tearing along as I read. It was cute and sweet and heartfelt. A perfect summer read, I give this one four stars out of five. <3

  • Reseña completa en: elcaosliterario.eEl libro es bastante lineal, sin grandes giros ni sorpresas, pero con una historia cuya magia se encuentra en lo bien contada que está y lo agradable que es de leer. Quizá al comienzo me resultó un poco lento pero, una vez puesto en situación, me enganchó bastante y pasaba páginas casi sin darme cuenta. Hay saltos temporales entre sus capítulos que también hacen de ella una lectura más amena. Además, estos saltos temporales, ayudan a comprender mej [...]
