Meet the LAST Poll: What we're reading in TLS this week

Help us make our last fic of the week poll count, and vote your hearts out.

Each week we share with you what we are reading and enjoying. The following made the top of our lists last week. Please help us determine which 5 of these will be featured as fics of the week, next week, by choosing FIVE from the poll on the right!

All We Are by SarahYoungEun-rec'd by Mercyrus Tales
Edward is no doubt one cryptic guy. The star volleyball player of Forks High School, he's hot, blunt, and popular, but there's something about him that goes much deeper than that. Then comes new student Bella Swan, shy and naive, who doesn't know what hits her until he takes her heart. It's a soft, tender, not-so-typical romance of two teenagers who want very different things. Rated: Fiction M

  1. Did we know this would be the last poll? I'm so sorry to hear that, it's something I looked forward to every week. Sigh. Well, thank you for the effort you've put into it all this time. TLS is not going away altogether, is it?

    1. Well Renee, we couldn't dare leave you now that you've told us that you look forward to us every week! But it does look like we fooled you on April Fools Day :) Hope you had a great one, come back and see us next Sunday, when a new poll will post.

  2. BOO-HOO ladies. Why is this the LAST poll? I get all my FF recs from you guys. I hope you are not closing the site as well? Are you?

    1. EeWee, thanks for stopping by and letting us know that you like our recs... we won't be going anywhere, and neither will our polls. We just like to fool around every now and then... especially on April Fools Day :) Hope yours was great, come back and see us next weekend when we put a new poll up!

  3. I love Under These Lights! It is such a good story. I found it a while back when it was football season and I went through my whole 'Friday Night Lights' phase. It's really well written and it's just a really good story!!!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, glad you liked our rec :)

  4. I totally fell for your April fools joke! I was so bummed when I read 'LAST poll' I'm so glad you ladies aren't going anywhere. I look fwd to your recs every week.

    1. We wouldn't leave you guys :) Thanks so much for visiting each week, Jessica.

  5. Good one, I was totally fooled! So pleased the poll isn't going anywhere. I always vote and get most of my recs from this site. Thank you and I appreciate the time and effort you put in.

  6. I depend on y'all for my summer (and fall and winter and spring) reading suggestions. Please don't ever go away. It took me at longer than I would like to admit to see the "fools day" theme this week...I feel kinda lame. ;-)

    Thanks for all you do for us - I "check-in" at least once a week. TLS has been my guilty pleasure for over a year and I am not giving it least not without a fight. ;-)
