  • Take the subway!

    Oh, this book was fun! I loved Red, White & Royal Blue and knew that I just had to read Casey McQuiston’s new book. I went into this book rather blindly and am so glad that I did because it was a wonderful surprise. I had such a good time listening to this audiobook that I found excuses to keep my headphones on just a little bit longer until I had reached the end. August has just moved to New York. She has a new job at a diner and a new place to live with a fantastic group of roommates. When she meets a gorgeous stranger on the subway, she knows that she has met someone special. Jane and August seem to click from the very start but they cannot figure out how to make things work since Jane is kind of stuck on the train. The characters in this book were phenomenal. I fell in love with August and her roommates, along with the other people in their social circle. This group of people were so supportive of each other that I was a joy to just to spend a little bit of time with them. I loved the way that they all rallied around each other and worked together to solve the problems that they faced. I liked Jane but she didn’t get quite as much page time as I would have expected but that made sense since she was stuck on the train. I feel like the romance really started progressing in the second half of the book and then Jane plays a bigger role. I did think that August and Jane made a great pair and I loved the chemistry between them. Natalie Naudus did a fantastic job with the narrations of this story. I thought that she did a great job with all of the character voices and she added a lot of emotion and excitement to the story. She was able to bring this story to life through her narration and I believe that her narration added to my overall enjoyment of the story. I would recommend this book to others. I thought that this was a wonderful story filled with characters that I couldn’t help but love and a romance that pulled at my heartstrings. I will definitely plan to read more of Casey McQuiston’s work in the future. I received a review copy of this audiobook from Macmillan Audio and a digital review copy from St. Martin’s Press.

  • Interesting concept

    One Last Stop was an interesting concept and one that I have definitely not read before. I devoured McQuiston's Red, White and Royal Blue when it released and while this one didn't draw me in quite the way that one did, it was well written. August has just moved to New York City to attend college. As she's getting settled in, she finds a home with a random group of people, Myla, Wes and Niko, who become her found family. She's got a Nancy Drew like streak in her that she learned from her Mom throughout her life. She meets Jane on the Q train during her commute to school and she realizes that Jane is literally displaced in time from the 1970's. It becomes the focus of August and her friends to free Jane from the train, whatever that means either going back in time or staying in the present. While I didn't love the time travel part of the story, I loved the variety of characters, their varying backgrounds and all of the different quirks. While this wasn't exactly what I was expecting, I'll definitely look for whatever Casey McQuiston releases next.

  • Entertaining & Unique - Wonderful!

    Indisputably, Casey McQuiston is an extremely talented writer. The way One Last Stop flows, from beginning to end, just took my breath away. Ms. McQuiston goes deep inside the main character, and the way she grows over the course of the novel is beautifully done. What astonished me most, and kept me coming back for more, is the clever way everyone’s stories are tied together. Without giving too much away, there’s something tying Jane to August, a reason why they connect in the first place. As the entire tale unfolds, amazing nuggets in time are uncovered, and it just gets better and better. As a time travel romance: spectacular As a hurt/comfort romance: perfection As a humorous look at a slice of life in modern day Brooklyn: fantastic Do I need to go on? One Last Stop is a gem and I loved every minute of it! I also had the pleasure of listening to the audio version of One Last Stop. Beautifully performed by Natalie Naudus, she adds so much to the personality of each of these characters. This is an extremely vast and varied cast, and Ms. Naudus finds something unique to bring out of each of them. Absolutely wonderful!

  • This book was everything I didn't know I needed

    I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you NetGalley, St. Martin's Press and Casey McQuiston. One Last Stop follows August, a cynical retired child detective. Her whole life it has just been her and her mom against the world trying to investigate August's missing uncle. Now trying to find her own way she moves to New York City a place that she views as just as cynical and hard as her. Instead she brought into a world of vibrancy as she makes friends, gets a job and begins to trust in others. Enter Jane. Jane is sexy, strong, and has a wicked smile that makes August melt. But there is one thing about Jane that might be a problem. She is literally displaced in time. Apparently when I read the synopsis of this book I missed the fact it says "She’s literally displaced in time from the 1970s" so when that's revealed I swore I almost fell over. It went from a cute contemporary romance to having a little bit of paranormal spice and I kind of fell in love. August is one of those main characters you can't help but not love. There is something just so lovable about someone who presents to the world so much cynicism and grit but is really just someone who wants love so badly. And Jane... I love Jane. I fell in love with her along side August. Outwardly she is all punk rock and insanely flirty but she's also so loyal and loving with a wicked sense of humour. The setting is gorgeous. From the wonderful diverse cast of characters that are very much apart of every aspect of the story as the main character to the way the author describes NYC its beautiful. The world felt so rich with colours and textures. Some of my favourite moments were the detail that went into the descriptions of the diner. That and the food... I desperately need to make the Su Special. I highly recommend this book and I can't wait to get my hands on a physical copy because this is going to be a major reread.

  • A Place to Belong

    One Last Stop was a captivating novel in a truly unexpected way. The book took a turn that I did not see coming and that addition of magic/supernatural was fascinating. I also really enjoyed the mystery of unraveling Jane's past as well as Augie's disappearance. The book started off a bit slow for me and the overall pacing seemed to drag at times, but the writing was superb and I loved how Casey McQuiston tied everything together. The secondary characters really made this book though and they added both comic relief and unwavering support. The found family of Niko, Myla, Wes, and August was absolutely beautiful. Though I'm not exactly sure of the science that was attempted in the book, I thought the premise was wonderfully imaginative and unique. As much as I was rooting for Jane and August though, I personally would have preferred the ending to take a different route. I was lucky to both read and listen to this book and it was a really enjoyable audiobook experience. Natalie Naudus's performance was so heartfelt and emotional. I appreciated the distinct and unique voices each character was given and had no issues determining what character was speaking. Natalie Naudus is a new to me narrator, but I look forward to listening to more of their performances in the future. Audiobook Review Overall 4 stars Performance 5 stars Story 3 stars CW: homophobia, parental abandonment, death of family member, mentions of hate crimes, arson, electricity *I voluntarily listened and read an advance review copy of this book*
