Q: What is the last book that kept you up late into the night just to finish it?
Well, I just read The Archived in a day because I couldn't put it down. But to go back a little further, the last book that kept me up late at night was My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick. I was just memorized by this book and was surprised to find how fast I read it. I didn't realize how much time had passed until I finished the last page and came back to reality. Fortunately, it was a Friday night and I could sleep in the next morning :D. My Life Next Door was so much more than a book about first love. Amidst the romance, Huntley Fitzpatrick beautifully portrays the trials of family and friendship, and navigating the ups and downs of life. I highly recommend if you read contemporary. My review is here.

And every day from her balcony perch, seventeen-year-old Samantha Reed wishes she was one of them . . . until one summer evening, Jase Garrett climbs her terrace and changes everything. As the two fall fiercely in love, Jase's family makes Samantha one of their own. Then in an instant, the bottom drops out of her world and she is suddenly faced with an impossible decision.
