The #BloggingBFFS Quiz

Inspired by the upcoming BEA AND by the sensational Since You’ve Been Gone, I have worked up a QUIZ for blogging friends to take to determine how well they know each other!  I even included a scoring system at the bottom so you can see how solid your friendship is 😉   And heck, if you don’t do so hot, all you can do is get to know each other better!  We can’t all be Estelle and Magan but we can damn well try! 😉  So, here I have included a link to the Google Doc and then I would like you all to:

Since You’ve Been Gone-In Favorites.

Posted by on May 22, 2014 | 6 comments

This is not going to be a typical review. It is going to be me taking some themes from Morgan Matson’s Since You’ve Been Gone and throwing them at you as my personal
pitch to get you to read this book! IT IS AMAZING. But first, the facts.

Emily and Sloane are BFF’s until one day Sloane disappears without a trace.  All that is left for Emily is a list.  And on this list are things Em would NEVER do, not in a million years.  Unless that is, she believes it will lead her to Sloane.

Audio Adventures is a new type of review! It is specifically formatted for my Audiobook Reviews and it helps explain how I feel about all the main categories.

The Execution: The voices, narrations, and accents of the audiobook. How did they hold up? Were they inviting, did I hate them, anything about the voices will be found in this section.

The Excursion: The plot, the storyline, the adventure that was had. See how I felt about the premise of the book here!

The Evaluation: The round up! This includes my normal ratings, some wrap up comments, and a general consensus!
