Review: Up All Night

Updated: Dec 4, 2021

One of my most anticipated books of the year, Up All Night by a variety of authors was not what I was expecting...

Spoiler alert, I didn’t like it. I also DNFed at around the 30% mark because I was bored and didn’t care at all anymore. But before I share my thoughts let me tell you what this book is about.

This is a YA contemporary anthology about staying up all night. Or in other words, stories that take place during the night. To me this sounds like a very fun premise and something I would be interested in as I think the variety of stories possible under this theme is wide enough to cover all types of stories but also narrow enough to give direction to the stories.

However, although I still love the idea of the book (and also the cover), I did not really care for the execution. For me, it was really boring and put me into the slump. They were very unmemorable and I found myself forgetting reading a story even if I had just read it the night before. I ended up just not caring enough to read more and that was the reason why I DNFed. This is not to say I have fully given up and still feel like I could credit some of disliking as a me problem and not the book. I do plan on checking out the book from my library to try again in not ebook format. As it stands though now, I don‘t feel right giving it any kind of star rating but I don’t want to fully give up quite yet.

Thank you so much to the publisher for sending me an e-ARC. I really appreciate it and I wish I had enjoyed this book more given it was one of my most anticipated books of the year. All my opinions are my own.
