McGarry is one of those authors that continually put out good stories. Each of her characters are intriguing, making readers want to understand them and learn what those secrets are. ~ Under the Covers
In this freebie short story, Katie McGarry injects her sweet, melodic writing with a heady dose of angst. Stella is an outsider who enjoys spending time in cemeteries. As morbid as that sounds, she finds a certain sense of peace she is unable to find anywhere else.
Jonah, a far more popular guy at school, meets Stella at the cemetery and at first it starts off as awkward. Stella comes across as slightly crazy and it definitely intrigued me as a reader. I suddenly wanted to know more about her and why she was acting this way. Joanh’s friends, however, don’t want anything to do with Trash Can girl so Jonah and Stella keep their meetings a secret.
I’ve been a fan of McGarry’s writing ever since Pushing the Limits came out and I strongly believe that McGarry is one of those authors that continually put out good stories. Each of her characters are intriguing, making readers want to understand them and learn what those secrets are.
Jonah feels a sense of helplessness that I don’t think many people could say they’ve experienced before. However, McGarry makes it relatable to readers. Similarly, Stella comes off as a very weird character at first, but as you read you begin to understand her more and learn to love her like Jonah does.
If you’ve been thinking about trying some of Katie McGarry’s writing, I believe that RED AT NIGHT is a great one to start with.

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
