FF: Late Night Reading

January 25, 2013 Feature and Follow 33

Feature and Follow is hosted by Rachel from Parajunkee’s View and Alison from Alison Can Read. Learn all about it here.

What is the last book that kept you up late into the night just to finish it?

I saw this question and I just couldn’t resist it, and that made me realize that I haven’t participated in a Feature & Follow in a long time (like 3 months)!

Today I’m going to a signing with Midnight Book Girl, The Fake Steph Dot Com and The Daily Bookmark and I hadn’t read any of the authors yet so last week I borrowed Across the Universe from Kate. I was a little nervous about reading it because it takes place in space on spaceship and I don’t really do space or spaceships. But Kate said I would like it ok so I gave it a try.

Beth Revis Across the UniverseI planned on reading a good chunk of it before going to bed, but I couldn’t put it down.  It grabbed my attention pretty early and kept right on going (for the record A Million Suns, the second book, was actually more fast paced and I liked it better). The space thing wasn’t really that bad either. I hate to say it but Sci-Fi might not be all bad.

Unfortunately I won’t be able to tell Beth Revis how she made a sci-fi hater fall in love with her books because she is unable to attend the signing because of a family emergency. It’s a bummer, but family always comes first. I hope that I’ll have an opportunity to meet her in the future.

What book kept you up into the night reading?

    I wish I could say this one is keeping me up at nights but it’s not. I’m enjoying it well enough, though. I think my crazy life is ruining books for me. :-(

    I LOVE Across the Universe and its sequel A Million Suns even more. Still have yet to read Shades of Earth which has just been published, and that’s sad that I haven’t yet finished it since it is one of my most anticipated books of 2013. New follower. :)

    Oh oh oh I love that series SO MUCH! I’m still recovering from Shades of Earth. Can’t accept that it’s over :(
    Anyway, I was really sorry to hear about Beth, but I hope you enjoy the event nonetheless.

    I haven’t read this yet, but I’ve heard good things about it. Like you, though, I’m not much into the space aspect. Apparently it’s easy to get over though. lol

    That’s awesome you get to attend a book signing with fellow bloggers. I’ve not read any of Beth Revis’s books yet but they are on my TBR list and sound amazing.
    Thanks for the great share this week.
    Have a great weekend.

    I’ve heard great things about this series but haven’t read it yet. I love books that you just can’t put down though…even if it means I get more wrinkles and bags under my eyes! :)

    I have no idea! I haven’t read anything really good recently so I haven’t stayed up especially late for anything. I really want to read across the universe! I have had it sat on my shelf for a while now!

  9. Kate

    Great answer!! I still need to read this series but can’t wait.

    Ah, sorry for the previous one, I messed up a bit…
    I meant to say that the book has been on my TBR list for a while and it seems great. :)

    It has been a really long time since I’ve read a book that kept me up all night. Maybe Gone Girl…
