Tear Jerker
We all know Meghan Quinn can write some laugh out loud romantic comedies, but with Dear Life, she got a little more serious. A story of four strangers, four lives, four sets of letters.

Special End of a Duet
You all know our love for Christine Reiss, I couldn’t wait to find out the conclusion to Adam and Diane’s story. It was even fitting that I got to buddy read and review with Yaya and Miri.

2017 Shortie Awards: Reader’s Poll

☆ ☆ ☆ 2017 SHORTIE AWARDS ☆ ☆ ☆

Another year is almost in the books (pun intended)!  And we were so overwhelmed with the number of amazing books released this year, that it was not easy narrowing down entries into our poll.  We know this list is far from comprehensive, but we think this represents some of the best of 2017.  Entries are based on our own favorites, feedback from our FB After Dark Reading Group, and Goodreads ratings.

This poll will run from 12/15 – 12/22
