Happy Friday and welcome to Book Probe! Hello to everyone stopping by my blog for Follow Friday (which is hosted by Rachel @ Parajunkee and Alison @ Alison Can Read), either it be for the first time or you’re a returning follower. *HI!* Leave your blog’s link when you comment and I’ll certainly visit and follow you back – it’s in my best interest to.
I haven’t participated in Follow Friday for more than a year, but I thought in 2013 I would try it out again and stick with it. What pained me was the time difference living in Australia and unsure of the time that the question or topic will be posted. But this year I will stay updated as best as I can. Also I will be participating every second Friday as per my schedule I’ve organised in 2013.
This week’s question is:
What is the last book that kept you up late into the night just to finish it?
The last book… hmmm… I can’t think of my last book that kept me up reading well into the night, but I do recall Jay Kristoff’s Stormdancer doing that back in June last year. On the morning I received Stormdancer from the publisher Pan Macmillan was the morning I began reading it. Not only that, but it was on the morning of one of my exams and I just couldn’t help it. Then, as soon as I got home that night, I read it and didn’t stop until I had consumed it whole, staying awake up until about 3am – a lengthy time to read a book, but I was just totally enthralled by this world and the characters and was soaking it up ever so slowly to cherish every moment there was between Yukiko and Buruu. I think I even reread a quarter or half of the book as soon as I finished it… so there would’ve been some more hours staked in that morning.
P.S. The title for book two was revealed recently:
