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!

Wonderful. I love any story involving found family, and when secondary characters in a rom com are full people with their own lives and stories.

Finished this one earlier this week. First #NewYearWhoDis book is in the bag. It‘s sapphic Kate and Leopold. I really loved this story but it would be cool to read more about the other characters in this book‘s universe too. I actually had a call today at work come in and it was a lady on the subway so of course I was reminded to do this review 😅 #BookSpinBingo

Here is my #Top21of21! This was both easy and hard to make. So many great reads but then I had to narrow it down. The tagged book (One Last Stop) squeaked by “Instructions for Dancing“ as my favorite book of the year. Both gave me all the feels.

I never would have read this if it hadn't shown up on NPR's booklist. Romance is not a genre I normally read, but this was a delightful book.

It felt progressive and fun and ended up being more of a mystery than a romance in the end for me.

Ok so if you‘re reading this Bc you liked Red White and Royal Blue, the vibes are not the same at all!
The first half of the book was touch and go, I wasn‘t rly feeling the story nor the characters. It picks up towards the end, but I confess it made me kinda tired. At the end I was content having read something that feels pretty representative of gen Z, including complex, layered relationships, and a fun touch of urban fantasy

(almost so-so)

So far so good. All the characters are almost excessively quirky, but I‘m into it. As a lover of books and pretty things I can‘t really relate to August‘s extreme minimalism, but I‘m rooting for her. I do love Jane, the love interest, so far, so that‘s a win. #romantsy

This was quirky, and adorable, and inclusive and beautifully queer and I loved it. Definitely a top read for this year, and would have made my #newyearwhodis list @mklong if I had read this earlier!

I loved every character to bits. It‘s a romance w/ a dash of magical realism, but at its heart this is also a story about friendship, and found families.

This also fits so many #pop22 prompts I should have waited 3 weeks to read it 🤣⬇️

1. After almost three weeks down a cell phone...finally back into Litsy action ? 2. After a long year of huge reading disappointments...this was such a breath of fresh air ?

This has solidified McQuiston as a must-buy for me. I loved how a whole spectrum of queerness was touched on throughout this beautifully diverse cast of characters. The "fantastical" element was just enough to make this sparkle without being gimmicky. Love, love, love ❤️

My #NewYearWhoDis list from @thewallflower0707 is terrific! I will be starting with the tagged as it is on my shelf. I love that there is a book I hadn‘t heard of, #6, but sounds right up my alley so that will be my second read. 7, 9, and 11 are on my TBR and the rest I‘ve heard great things. I am hoping to get 4 read in January and clear the list through out the year. Thanks @monalyisha for another great match!

Casey McQuiston is quickly becoming an auto read author for me. I wasn‘t sure I‘d like this as much as Red White and Royal Blue since aside from both being LGBTQ books they have nothing in common, but I think I liked this one even more. The characters were similarly nuanced, relatable and funny, but while Red White and Royal Blue took a common trope and put a new spin on it, here the plot was surprising, fresh and a bit wacky.

Went through @xicanti #NewYearWhoDis list!

They all sound so good! I‘ve read 2, cerulean sea and lonely hearts hotel (loved both). And my library has zero copies of Black Water or Crazy Eights. So they are on my TBR.

I‘m so glad Witness for the Dead is on your list! I just read Goblin Emperor this year. I own Know Your Name, but haven‘t read it, so this will give me that push. I also haven‘t read a ton M/M romance! Looking forward to all these

monalyisha A success! One Last Stop is on the list that I made for my partner, too. I really enjoyed it! I was a little bummed when comparing lists/read catalogs to see that you‘d already read Lonely Hearts. It‘s so good! I wish we could all three read it for the first time again! But I think you‘ve got so many good ones ahead of you! Enjoy! 💜 2mo

August meets Jane on the subway; only on the subway; any subway; in fact, no matter the time, or place, if August steps on the subway... Jane is there. That‘s weird. 🤣😉

Another cute, funny and heartwarming tale by McQuiston with a great cast of characters. This is sweet romance about finding oneself and choosing the family you need and want. #lgbtq

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️This is probably, actually, a 5 star book, but McQuiston‘s Red, White, & Royal Blue was such an absolute favorite for me, I knew her second work would be hard pressed to live up to it.This one was funny & sweet, the found family was *chef‘s kiss*, &the diversity of sexuality, gender, & race was perfectly done.The “time traveling” aspect was weird, &though well explained, I never really fully bought into it. All in all-definitely recommend.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Hmmm… Not sure what I think about this one. Loved the full cast of queer characters but wasn‘t totally sold on the time continuum bending romance at the heart of it. (I probably should have looked closer at the description to know this might not be my thing.) I think I would have liked it better if it had ended a chapter or two sooner. But glad I didn‘t bail.

This was my November #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

Annie1215 The time travel aspect is what‘s holding me back from this too. I feel like my stack of reads was over saturated with that trope in 2020 so I needed a break. 3mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 3mo
fredthemoose @Annie1215 yeah… it was just more than really worked for me. I liked the characters but I have a hard time suspending disbelief. And I didn‘t totally buy the romance at the center. I can see why some people loved it, it just wasn‘t really my book. 3mo

I've been trying with this for the last couple of weeks but it's now time to admit defeat. While the style is very reminiscent of Red White and Royal Blue the story has none of the charm for me and I'm sorry to say I'm finding it a bit boring. I hate to bail on my #Bookspin but I can't waste any more reading time in this one.
@TheAromaofBooks

Centique Hi Carolyn. I hope you and yours are all well and doing ok 💕 I want to send a little Christmas gift to you from an Aussie shop I love. Just wanted to check that your PO Box can handle parcels that are a little bulkier or fragile? I know so much depends on who looks after the service there 🤞 xxx 2mo
CarolynM @Centique That's so kind of you, Paula. Our Post Office is excellent, they can handle anything, but not all shops will deliver to PO addresses. I'll email you my street address. We are all fine, although my daughter has been isolating this week - one of the kids she coached at netball on the weekend tested positive. I have been thinking of you as the news from NZ hasn't been great. The crazies have been making a lot of noise in both our locations! 2mo
Centique @CarolynM thank you Carolyn that will be great. Yes too many idiots on both sides of the ditch 😬 I‘m having to practice staying calm about it after getting very angry at a friend earlier in the year who was posting misinformation.🤞🤞Best wishes for your daughter! My nephew is isolating too, he‘s a police officer and interviewed some car thieves this week who then tested positive. It‘s rife amongst the gangs at the moment. I‘m glad we have ⬇️ 2mo
Centique Some good books and summer walks we can focus on instead - and hopefully get to a restaurant again one day soon which will feel like a miracle when it happens! 💕💕 2mo

I finally finished this and there's a lot to like. The secondary characters are wonderful and I loved how descriptive the writing was. I liked both MCs but I didn't love them. The romance was good but didn't make me swoon. The mysteries of how Jane came to be 'stuck' & of August's uncle's disappearance were interesting but I felt like both stories lacked something. In fact, this story as a whole lacks something for me. I liked it but ⬇️

bookandbedandtea ⬆️ definitely didn't love it. Which pains me to say, given how thoroughly I love 'Red, White, and Royal Blue'. I REALLY want a book about Wes and Isaiah, though! Somehow their story, with as little page time as they got, did make me swoon & I want more! 4mo

A queer romance novel. August is new to NY when she meets a mysterious girl on the subway. That girl, Jane, turns out to be unstuck in time from the 70s, and can‘t leave the train. I love the way McQuiston writes about chosen families.

I'm about 40% into this audiobook and, instead of being caught up in the romance or the mystery, I'm primarily freaking out that August hasn't been to school or work in several weeks. 😬 Also, possible spoiler in comment:
