It was a decent read but not a patch on Red White & Royal Blue. August lives in NYC, while on the subway she meets Jane, it eventually turns out Jane can't leave the subway as is from 1970. August gets help from her friends in trying to solve how to Jane from being lost in time.

Am I retroactively mad at everyone who told me this was a time slip subway story and failed to mention the amnesia? Yes, I am. Also a delightful look at family, and home, and horniness. For #RippedBodiceBingo can be used for amnesia, number in the title, or graduation.

Though I didn't find this as good as Red, White, & Royal Blue, I still think it's five star quality. My favorite part is the found family dynamic. Just makes my heart so happy. The plot, while a bit too convenient at times, was super original: where else will you hear about time traveling lesbians stuck on a subway? Loved the themes of emotional vulnerability as well.

In love with this. Had speculative aspect I did NOT expect after Red White and Royal Blue, and had so much queer love and references to intersections of queer history.

I liked this just as much as Red, White, and Royal Blue (I know many people didn‘t.). I may have liked it more. The sort of sci-fi twist helped. It was fun reading about the quirky roommates as they tried to rescue the girl stuck in the subway. I also enjoyed all the party scenes with their descriptions of the NY LGBTQIA+ attendees.

Overall a fun romance with an unusual plot and characters I loved.

This was my most recent read and this month‘s #bookspin selection. I enjoyed the pop culture references! A little bittersweet and a little (okay, a lot) of suspension of disbelief.

MEANWHILE, thanks to being clueless on the first trip, I ended up making TWO trips to the library today. That means a double haul! Most of the books are still in my car…

TheAromaofBooks Great progress!!!! 3mo

This book was way too long. Nothing happens until the last 100 pages or so.

I found it very boring. I had to force myself to keep reading it, however the book is written well, has engaging characters, and I enjoyed the found family element.

3.5 stars nothing really happens til like that last hundred pages, but that‘s okay it was worth it. This is a very relatable book topic right now with roe v Wade being overturned. And lgbtqia+ rights possibly under fire. Bring a you back to when things were much harder than we think they are now ( not talking about politics, in general)

What a cute story. August is trying to be independent, start a new stage in her life and moved to NY. There she lives with these peculiar, funny, great roommates adding adventures to her life. Then one day on the train she sees this attractive and different girl who seems to be trapped in the 70‘s in term of her music taste. Who is this Jane? A real person? Someone from the past? A ghost? August and the roommate gang will discover the mystery.

Gissy I would prefer another ending, maybe sad but more realistic. But I know that is an unpopular opinion. Most people love this end. I really enjoy the story. 3.5⭐️

This was a #bookclub pick. If not for that I don‘t think I would have finished this book. Romance is not my cup of tea, sex on the subway!?!(thank goodness for fast forwarding) Have you ever seen how dirty those are? I listened to this while I reorganized the library.

Soubhiville Um, ew. I‘m with you there- no way on the subway. I do want to read this though. 4mo
TheAromaofBooks A while back I read a book and the romantic couple had to take shelter from the weather in a cottage that “hadn't been used in years“ and then shagged on the blankets - I could NOT get past how gross that sounded!! 😳 4mo

What snacks do you like to eat while reading?

I eat candy canes all year along and they make a great reading snack. They're sweet, minty, and I like how they can be treated like hard candy OR a chewy treat.

mdm139 Popcorn is my favorite snack, but I also keep candy canes year round and gingerbread cookies. 4mo
GondorGirl @mdm139 I love popcorn, too, but I like it extra buttery... which isn't so good for reading. 😅 4mo

Loved the premise: August meets a mystery girl on the subway, leading her on an investigation to discover that Jane is trapped in a mysterious time loop. August and her new NYC friends work together to solve the mystery. The cover is also 💯. Great LGBTQ representation, but I felt like some of the character wokeness was a bit over the top and presented without much interrogation of certain characters‘ actions. Also the subway sex made me cringe.

Kimberlone An example of my discomfort with some of the performative wokeness: one character repeatedly yells “f*****g pigs” at cops throughout the book, but there is never a discussion of why he has those feelings towards the police or what he is doing to actually make change on that issue. It just felt unnecessary and not well incorporated. There are very valid criticisms of policing in America, but this book didn‘t address them in a nuanced way. 5mo
Saknicole I may have never finished this but agreed on your points from what I ready. 4mo
Kimberlone @Saknicole okay but did you make it to the subway sex….? 4mo
Saknicole 😂 no I didn‘t. Was it hot? 4mo
Kimberlone @Saknicole I didn‘t find it to be sexy because I couldn‘t get it out of my mind that they were doing it on the subway…but your mileage may vary 4mo

I probs should have read the back of book before reading it to see what the story was about. But, I honestly bought this because of the author and that alone did not disappoint! What a whirlwind of emotions! LOVED it!

shanaqui IIRC, I found the back blurb kinda spoilery in an unfun way, so maybe you actually got the best deal there! 5mo

I know people love this, and it was nice to read a heartwarming story for a change, but I felt like it dragged on and could have been edited down.

Cozzy is tired of me propping books on him, lol. Anyway, i read this one in one sitting, and it was very good. The language was pretty, the characters were lovable, and I loved the representation. I wish this kind of representation was the norm, and not something that would be praised bc it‘s so rare, especially from white authors. It‘s not hard to do better.

Super cute! The author did a great job of developing the supernatural mystery surrounding Jane in a way that felt natural with no conclusion jumping (except by August when she decided Jane might be a vampire 😂). The romance development was also excellent and I found myself rooting for August and Jane the whole time. #LGBTQ #NewYork #Romance

Kenyazero @ErinSueMreads I think that's pretty fun, too! Have you read The Heartbreak Bakery? That's another one I've read recently that doesn't have an antagonist and is packed full of loveable characters. It is YA in that it centers teen protagonists, but it doesn't feel reductive at all (some YA can be a little reductive or simplistic sometimes). 8mo

Neither of my kids seem inclined to sleep tonight, so I figured I might as well finish this. It started off really strong for me and I liked the ending, but it kind of dragged in the middle and took me way longer to read than it should have. I loved all the music references and listened to a One Last Stop playlist while I read. I think my favorite thing about the book was all the fabulous side characters - I wanted to be friends with them all!
