"From the New York Times bestselling author of Red, White & Royal Blue comes a new romantic comedy that will stop readers in their tracks... "Dreamy, other worldly, smart, swoony, thoughtful, hilarious - all in all, exactly what you'd expect from Casey McQuiston!" - Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of The Proposal and Party for Two Cynical twenty-three-year old August doesn't believe in much. She doesn't believe in psychics, or easily forged friendships, or finding the kind of love they make movies about. And she certainly doesn't believe her ragtag band of new roommates, her night shifts at a 24-hour pancake diner, or her daily subway commute full of electrical outages are going to change that. But then, there's Jane. Beautiful, impossible Jane. All hard edges with a soft smile and swoopy hair and saving August's day when she needed it most. The person August looks forward to seeing on the train every day. The one who makes her forget about the cities she lived in that never seemed to fit, and her fear of what happens when she finally graduates, and even her cold-case obsessed mother who won't quite let her go. And when August realizes her subway crush is impossible in more ways than one-namely, displaced in time from the 1970s-she thinks maybe it's time to start believing. Casey McQuiston's One Last Stop is a sexy, big-hearted romance where the impossible becomes possible as August does everything in her power to save the girl lost in time"--

I loved this book so much and it was so hard to put down when I had to do something else. I loved Red, White & Royal Blue and I'm happy to say this book also didn't disappoint.

I like how diverse the characters are in both race and sexuality. I thought it was great to have a bisexual main character who wasn't afraid to speak up when people called her a lesbian.

I was so caught up in the story and always wanted to know what would happen next. I still felt like it read like a realistic fiction book even though there was a sci-fi aspect to it.

There was not as much spice compared to Red, White & Royal Blue but it honestly didn't need it. I was glad that the book still had a great plot and dialogue without it needing a lot of sex to carry the story along.

I'm giving this book 5/5 stars because this book was able to melt my heart and made me care about the characters in a way that most books fail to do.

There was so much to love about this book, but my absolute favourite aspect was the PEOPLE of this book. McQuiston has once again provided a very full cast of lovable characters who have great depth, diversity, and ample personality. From a drag queen to a psychic, it seemed that everyone was present in the small Brooklyn apartment that August calls home. And I always love a found-family.

LOVE, LOVED, LOVED this book!

I couldn't put it down. I was reading other books at the time but this was the one that I kept wanting to go back to. This was also my first Casey McQuiston book -- she absolutely nailed the concept of "found family" and a passionate love between two girls who really weren't supposed to meet.

I loved how I didn't just become invested in August and Jane ... but also in the lives of August's roommates and friends. I loved how the mystery of August's missing uncle was connected, and I loved all the pop culture/history/music references. This is a story (stories?) that you will just want to soak up!

And now I'm craving pancakes.

Here's all the things I loved about this book. The representation. The friendships. the f/f romance that you rarely every see. New York basically being another character. Did I mention the friendships?
I did really truly enjoy this book, but I don't think it stands up to McQuiston's Red White and Royal Blue.

I mean, to be fair, she set the bar SO high for herself.

The characters are ultimately the best part of this book and each one is so well formed and thought out that I can clearly see them. Also, oh man, I want to be friends with them. However at times I thought it was trying just a tad too hard and felt just a tad off. Ultimately though it was a beautiful story and I enjoyed the journey.
