As you know, I have been trying this new thing for me where I tell you about a book I loved and share a free ebook link to that book if possible.
What I picked this novel?
So, the novel I’m thinking about, I heard mixed things about, and I saw it on a lot of blogs because whether you hate it or love it gives things to say about it. However, the author’s writing keeps me wondering whether the book is a hit or a miss. My thoughts on this one aren’t fully formed since I haven’t finished it.
Taped to a trash can inside the Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen at the corner of Parkside and Flatbush Avenues.
SEEKING YOUNG SINGLE ROOMMATE FOR 3BR APARTMENT UPSTAIRS, 6TH FLOOR. $700/MO. MUST BE QUEER & TRANS FRIENDLY. MUST NOT BE AFRAID OF FIRE OR DOGS. NO LIBRAS, WE ALREADY HAVE ONE.
“Can I touch you?”
That’s the first thing the guy with the tattoos says when August settles onto the rubbed-off center cushion of the brown leather couch—a flaking hand-me-down number that’s been a recurring character the past four and a half years of college. The type you crash on, bury under textbooks, or sit on while sipping flat Coke and speaking to no one at a party. The quintessential early twenties trash couch.
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.

I actually just finished this book yesterday and I ended up really liking it. The beginning was slow and I was worried I wasn’t going to like it at all, but the whole time travel/paradox with Jane kept me invested. I did love trying to find out what caused her to be stuck and how to get her unstuck. The romance didn’t wow me, but I thought it was sweet and the found family was really wonderful! I hope you ended up enjoying this!
