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

I just finished reading A Memory of Light of Robert Jordan.This is the 14th and final book in the Wheel of Time series, which I've been reading since I was sixteen. It was an amazing, epic final chapter. I loved everything about it, teared up often, and simply could not stop reading it! It was beyond awesome! I really could gush about the epic battles, awesome characters and tragic plot threads...but I won't. Check out my full review here.

How about you? What was the last book that kept you reading into the night?


  1. YAY I get to have you visit my blog today :) Thank you again for doing the interview.

    I am a Brandon Sanderson fan. I read the Mistborn trilogy and loved it. It actually happened because a guy that used to work with me told me about The Wheel of Time series and how Sanderson was going to be writing on it and he found his other books and read them and really loved them. I haven't read The Wheel of Time Series yet, but they have been on my list for a while now.

    Here is my FF. Old follower :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven

  3. Oh I haven't read this series yet but it sounds great. I do enjoy great characters and battles. ;) I think that's why I am a bit drawn to highlander books. Nothing like blood shed to make the characters seem more real.
    Happy Friday!

  4. I really have to check out this series, especially since it's compared so often with A Song of Ice and Fire, which I loved.

    Old follower. Thanks for stopping by!

  10. Oh, how bittersweet to finish a series that has been a part of your life for so long! It sounds really good, too!

    I'm an old follower, here's my my FF post for this week.

    Have a fantastic Friday.

  11. What a great achievement to have a series that's spanned as long as this one has in your life!
    Glad you enjoyed the final book, too!
    Thanks for stopping by My FF!
    Happy Friday! =D

  13. Long series! I'm always sad to see any series end. Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for stopping by. I'm following back.

  14. I know these books are very popular, but I've not read any of them. Too much fantasy for me, I think. Thanks for visiting!

  15. I think I want to read this series. I never really knew about until just a few years ago, and ever since it's been popping up... Now that the last book is out, I am definitely going to read it. 'A Song of Ice and Fire' series will have to wait for these books...

    New Follower :) Thanks for stopping by :)

  16. I've never read a book by either Robert Jordan or Brandon Sanderson but I love the cover and synopsis. Thanks so much for the great share I added a few to my growing TBR list.
    Have a great weekend.

  17. Good answer!

  18. Sometimes you just can't put a book down.

  19. I love a good fantasy but I never got around to reading this series. Maybe I should think about giving it a try :)

  27. I love a good fantasy but haven't read one in quite a while, you have inspired me to read. I have added your book to my TBR pile.

    Followed via GFC. My FF

  28. Awesome Feature and Follow! Check out mine here: Vault Girl’s F&F

  29. Followed via Linky/GFC :)

    I haven't read Wheel of Time, but I might pick it up now that it's finally finished. I have a rule that I won't start epic series until they ARE finished, because of Wheel of Time.

    The last book that kept me up was Star Wars: Scoundrels.
