Book Review: One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston

Release Date: June 1st 2021


For cynical twenty-three-year-old August, moving to New York City is supposed to prove her right: that things like magic and cinematic love stories don’t exist, and the only smart way to go through life is alone. She can’t imagine how waiting tables at a 24-hour pancake diner and moving in with too many weird roommates could possibly change that. And there’s certainly no chance of her subway commute being anything more than a daily trudge through boredom and electrical failures.

But then, there’s this gorgeous girl on the train.

Jane. Dazzling, charming, mysterious, impossible Jane. Jane with her rough edges and swoopy hair and soft smile, showing up in a leather jacket to save August’s day when she needed it most. August’s subway crush becomes the best part of her day, but pretty soon, she discovers there’s one big problem: Jane doesn’t just look like an old school punk rocker. She’s literally displaced in time from the 1970s, and August is going to have to use everything she tried to leave in her own past to help her. Maybe it’s time to start believing in some things, after all.

My favourite authors are releasing new books in 2022. Yay!

Howdy, happy Monday.

Question: you ever have days where you just don’t feel much? Like you’re not exactly happy but you’re not sad either. You’re just floating on a cloud of “meh”. Anyone??

Well that’s how I’m feeling today so I figured I’d try and inject some positivety in my life by talking about new books coming out in 2022 by some of my favourite authors!!


Casey Mcquiston – I Kissed Sara Wheeler

Sure Casey McQuiston is the only author on this list where I’ve only read one of their books but we’re just going to ignore that. While I might not have yet read One Last Stop I just know I’m going to love it as much as Red, White and Royal Blue.

In 2022 McQuiston is not only releasing another book but she’s releasing her YA debut: I Kissed Sara Wheeler! This seems different to her previous novels not only because it’s YA obviously, but it also seems to have a mystery element to it.

It follows a girl called Chloe who’s running for valedictorian with her only real competition being prom queen Sara Wheeler. When a month before graduation Sara kisses Chloe and then vanishes, Chloe follows the clues to find her.

New to me authors 2019

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog 🙂

Its officially 5 days to Christmas and I’m in panic mode because I haven’t gotten any presents besides for Secrete Santa. I’m a mess and a disasters.

Todays post is in no way Christmas related because I don’t need the stress, instead I’m going to be talking about a few new to me authors that I read this past year.

Jenn Bennett

20190804_124328

I haven’t stopped raving about Jenn Bennet since I read her book Starry Eyes at the start of the year and for good reason. I thought her books, of which I’ve so far read 2 (Starry Eyes and Night Owl) were lots of fun and they made me enjoy and be more open to reading ya contemporary with romances, something I previously wasn’t totally crazy for.

On my shelf I have her other 2 contemporary releases (Alex Approximately and Serious Moonlight) which I hope to get to in 2020 and if I enjoy those I plan on picking up and trying her new historical fantasy novel. Continue reading “New to me authors 2019”
