⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

*Thank you to NetGalley and the Publishers for this free copy in exchange for an honest review*

Summary:

August has always lived her life alone. It’s how she was raised, and she knows life is better like that. One day she decides to move to New York for something new, and meets an apartment full of interesting people, and a work where pancakes are her new life. Life in New York is making being alone hard, and it gets even harder when she finds the girl on the train. Jane. Jane with her mysterious back story and her lack of knowledge of today’s world makes August start to question everything, including if life is better lived alone.

My Thoughts:

This was my first Casey McQuiston book. I never jumped on the Red White and Blue bandwagon for some reason, and now I wish I did. McQuiston’s writing was so captivating that I read this book in two days. I couldn’t stop reading it, and when I did stop I just wanted to keep going. I now feel an urge to read their other book, because I’m in love with the writing style!

Other than the writing style, I loved almost everything about this book. The characters were really strong for me, and I want to read a spin off on each one. I found the side characters to be more interesting than August and Jane, but it didn’t take away from the story. It had a New Girl feel to it which I loved, and a wholesome love story.

I will admit that I had no idea this was a time travel/loop story. I guess I just shrugged that off, but it made for a very exciting surprise. Reading August teach Jane about life in present day was so cool, especially since Jane was a very accepting 24 year old from the 70’s. Jane as well had such an interesting back story, and I am a sucker for found family.

Everything about this story was so fun and fluffy. It’s definitely the feel good book you need when all you read are sad stories!

The only two things in this book that I thought could have been done differently were the story of August’s uncle, and the ending. Don’t get me wrong, I liked the connection between Augie and the characters, but it felt a little heavy handed and the book honestly probably would’ve been the same without it. As for the ending, I don’t want to spoil too much, but I would have liked it if it took the opposite track. Say what you will, maybe I’m a cynic, or maybe I just read too many books without happy endings. But I think it would’ve helped with the regret aspect of things. Even if it was back to the 70s for a short period, I think it would’ve made it stronger. But even with those two things being said, I adored this book. And I would like spin offs, or even chapter samplers of Niko, Wes, Isaiah, and Myla. Myla specifically. Thank you Casey McQuiston, Sincerely, Nicole.

Would I recommend?

YES. 10000% yes. This is the perfect feel good book of the summer, and you won’t regret it. Plus who can say no to a Sapphic love story with a punk 70s girl and a modern day investigator? So do yourself a favor and pick it up IMMEDIATELY.

  2. I keep hearing amazing things about this book and I’m going to my favorite bookstore next week, so I really hope this book is there!

    You should absolutely go read Red White and Royal Blue. The hype kept me from that book for a long time until one day I suddenly wanted to read more romance and it was absolutely worth it, I loved it! Casey McQuiston just has a way with words😍
