This week's question:

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

I don't do this very often as I have to young children that will likely get up at the crack of dawn if I do, but Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Boys made me do it. It was taunting me, I swear. I tried putting it down and I am pretty sure it called me names and bullied me into finishing it. And Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein? My goodness I couldn't put it down for anything. Kids schmids. Really. Who cares how tired I would be the next day when they decided 5 am was an acceptable wake up time. It was Code Name Verity for goodness sake! Okay. So maybe lately I have done it more than I thought. Dang them. :)  (If you're interested, my reviews are here - The Raven Boys, Code Name Verity)

Thanks for visiting! What books have kept you up late? ;)  Leave a comment below and if you have your own Follow Friday post leave a link to it and I'll visit! :)

Smiles,
