One Last Stop Spoiler Free Review

Hi everyone, I hope you are all having an amazing day and are staying safe. So I am finally getting to this review a month later than I was hoping to but better late than never.

Title: One Last Stop

Author: Casey McQuiston

Release Date: 1st June 2021

Number of Pages: 422

Genre: New Adult, Romance, Contemporary, LGBTQ+

Goodreads Synopsis

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.

So this book was my most anticipated read of the year. I heard about it last summer and have been waiting patiently since then to pick it up and am so glad to say that I was not disappointed in the slightest.

This book follows August who has just moved to New York. August has spent most of her life isolating herself from the world around her and feels that New York is the perfect place to get lost in. However things don’t go quite as planned as August’s new roommates are determined to take her under their wing and of course we can’t forget Jane, the cute girl from the Q train who may or may not be displaced from the 1970s and who she also may or may not be falling in love with.

I abousley loved the characters in this. First I felt really connected to August seeing a character the same age as me who didn’t have everything figured in their life figured out yet. Someone who never really fit in most of her life. I absolutely adored Jane she is mostly definitely my newest fictional crush. And of course we can’t forget about August’s roommates who honestly make this book. Each of them are such well developed characters and I love all off their interactions together.

The romance in this is one of my all time favourites I loved watching August and Jane fall in love. The sex scenes in this are done really well and I like how sex positive this is.

This is also such a diverse book. August is bisexual, Jane is Asian and a lesbian. Niko is rans and Latino, Mya black and queer. Wes is also queer and Isaih a black drag queen.

Overall, I am so glad that I picked this up it’s my favourite read of the year and I don’t see anything else taking that spot and I definitely need to pick her other book Red White and Royal Blue. I gave this 5 out of 5 stars.

Trigger warnings for anxiety, talk of loss of loved ones, mentions of racism and homophobia.
