Have you guys ever looked at a copy of Chase’s Calendar of Events? If you haven’t, it’s a big book that’s put out every year with every sort of holiday, anniversary, and notable day you can ever imagine in it. (If you’re a total nerd like me and that sounds awesome to you, your local library probably has a copy hanging out somewhere.)
So, I was flipping through my Chase’s the other day when I noticed that May 12 is Stay Up All Night Night. Stay Up All Night Night is a celebration of how awesome it is to stay up late when you’re a kid, and it encourages people to stay up and relive some of that magic once they’re older. It’s celebrated annually on the second Saturday in May.
Thinking about Stay Up All Night Night got me thinking about books where most or all of the action takes place at night. Here are some of my favorites!
Paper Towns by John Green
Margo Roth Spiegelman is the girl Quentin Jacobsen can’t help dreaming about. She’s quirky and funny and smart and lives right next door. One night she knocks on his window in the middle of the night for a series of adventures that require, among other things, a fish, a bouquet of flowers, and a can of spray paint. Q thinks his dreams are finally coming true–until Margo disappears. Q knows something bad has happened, but can he find her in time?
