When everyone else goes to bed, the ones who stay up feel like they’re the only people in the world. As the hours tick by deeper into the night, the familiar drops away and the unfamiliar beckons. Adults are asleep, and a hush falls over the hum of daily life. Anything is possible.

It’s a time for romance and adventure. For prom night and ghost hunts. It’s a time for break

This was a really nice set of stories, all happening in the middle of the night, sometimes for a short time, sometimes all night long. I really liked the diversity of the stories, all different from one another, and also in terms of queerness, POC, disabilities or mental illness. A nice bunch of representation, not necessarily the main aspect of the story. I really liked the last two ones, by Julian Winters and Francesca Zappia

ARC Review (1/2/21, received through Edelweiss+)

Actual rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

This was a super fun and sweet collection, full of surprises, adventures, and heart-stopping romances beneath the dusky night sky.

"Never Have I Ever" by Karen M. McManus-4 out of 5 stars: A cliche romantic comedy about an innocent game of Never Have I Ever goes south when the bad boy shows up, a murder scene is uncovered, and the sheriff's daughter reveals she might not be so lawful after all. This story surprised m

There are the anthologies that work and ones that don't. I usually get the feeling from the get-go as to whether it's a dud or a dream.....

What a dream! I am in love with this anthology-- thirteen stories by *amazing* authors and their only premise: "up all night / stories between sunset and sunrise". Check and check. And I think the thing that I love most is that for as different as the stories are, they're not so discordant that it pulls the book in too many different directions. They flow an

Up All Night is an anthology of 13 short stories that take place either all night or between sunset and sunrise. There were some amazing contributors, and even more amazing stories.

Below are the stories and individual reviews:

Never Have I Ever by Karen M. McManus—4 Stars
*Never Have I Ever starts with a group of friends playing classic never have I ever at a party. When the town’s “bad boy” shows up, the group decides to play the game a little differently.
*My synopsis sucks, but it’s Karen McMa

My only issue with short stories is that they end sooner than I'd like! Ha.

A fantastic collection, featuring some of my favourite authors such as Karen M, McManus and Amanda Joy, and other wonderful authors I have never read anything from before.

"Like Before" by Maurene Goo was my favourite out of all of them, friendship groups are often so unlikely but by some magic they seem to work. Those last few months of high school are so important and it's often not something you realise at the time - I

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC! Maybe I am not meant to ever read and like collections of short stories by various authors. Maybe I need to stick to novels or short stories by the same author. I think there’s only been maybe one or two collections like this that I’ve ever liked. Most of the stories I just couldn’t see the point. I didn’t care much for the characters or conflicts. I appreciated the diversity in these pieces, but that was about it. Like, there was one where two friends decide to ...more

TW: implied molestation (in (view spoiler))
3.3

Short stories are not created equal, and most of the ones in this collection fell flat. The thing with short stories is-they have to mean something. If there's no impact, what's the point? As someone who's spent a lot of time writing them- and has a good handful of them I fawn over- I've given a lot of thought, and had a few classes, on what makes a good short story, and

An excellent collection of teen short stories. There is at least one story in it for teens with all sorts of interests: romance, coming of age, murder mystery, etc! I especially love that teens with disabilities and gender-queer identities are portrayed throughout so that readers can truly see themselves in the characters.

I'm certain my high school readers will enjoy this collection and will add it to my bookcase as soon as it's available.

Fill my shelves with short fiction anthologies! I love these collections for a few reasons: 1) they give my students broad access to a variety of authors, 2) they provide short bursts of texts for my more reluctant readers, &3) they’re a great way to try a new genre or style without making a huge commitment to an entire text.

This collection kept me up all night reading the selections. Some of the stories are better developed than others, but the overall offerings were perfect to bring to my stu

What a wonderfully delightful collection of short stories. We go searching for ghosts, to prom, senior game night, a friendship scavenger hunt, plus more adventures. Some of the authors were new to me and I can't wait to read more of their works. Each story was a reasonable length and I can't wait to use this in my classroom. ...more

Thank you to NetGalley and the Publisher for early access to this book. I enjoyed the concept of Up All Night especially since other than one Dance Marathon in college I have never stayed up all night. The best were saved for the last with this compilation of short stories. “Under Our Masks” by Julian Winters was my overall favorite. A super hero teen and his crush stake out searching for Raven the aforementioned superhero. A close second would be “The Ghost of Goon Creek” by Francesca Zappia. A ...more
