Up All Night

YOUNG ADULT FICTION–Anthology
When everyone else goes to bed, the ones who stay up feel like they’re the only people in the world. As the hours tick by deeper into the night, the familiar drops away and the unfamiliar beckons. Adults are asleep, and a hush falls over the hum of daily life. Anything is possible.
It’s a time for romance and adventure. For prom night and ghost hunts. It’s a time for breaking up, for falling in love—for finding yourself.
Stay up all night with these thirteen short stories from bestselling and award-winning YA authors like Karen McManus, Tiffany D. Jackson, Nina LaCour, and Brandy Colbert, as they take readers deep into these rarely seen, magical hours.
Full contributor list: Brandy Colbert, Kathleen Glasgow, Maurene Goo, Tiffany D. Jackson, Amanda Joy, Nina LaCour, Karen M. McManus, Anna Meriano, Marieke Nijkamp, Laura Silverman, Kayla Whaley, Julian Winters, Francesca Zappia
This was such a fun read. I enjoyed each of the stories and appreciated how different each one of them was. There was a broad selection of topics from lighter to more seriously themed. The collection of stories are relatable to a variety of readers and I thought that was well done.
I discovered new authors and revisited some of my favorites. I picked up the audio and the variety of narrators also lent so much to each individual story and I could hear the tone of each author in each story. I would recommend the audio for those who are avid audiobook listeners because it was a great experience.
If you’re not sure what you’re looking for something to read but aren’t sure what you’re in the mood for than I definitely recommend this anthology. These stories range from romantic to spooky to emotional to comedic. There’s even a story that makes a play on Pokemon Go but with monsters. You’ll get a taste of different genres which made this a great experience.
I definitely recommend this!!
