Can’t wait Wednesday | One Last Stop

Hey friends I know that’s not what you signed for but please spare a few minutes to take a look at this:


The actual post (but please don’t ignore what comes before):

Can’t wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings and that originated as Waiting on Wednesdaycreated by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its purpose is to give you a space to talk about books you can’t wait to read, whether it is a debut author that you are excited to meet or the new book from an author that has captivated you in the past. You can join and see the others blogs participating at Tressa’s recent post.

Hi! My name is Ariadna and I have absolutely no idea what day it is. I’m panic-writing this twenty-five minutes before it isn’t Wednesday anymore because I was very busy trying to success at the Genshin Impact Misty Dungeon event. But I’m here. And this book is almost here too!

Today’s pick is Casey McQuiston (the author of Red, White and Royal Blue) new book… and it’s a sapphic one! With some kind of weird wibbly wobbly, timey wimey stuff! Sounds like my favorite kind of media. This book is coming out on June 1st and I can’t wait to read it, love it, adore it… yes, I’m making heart eyes.

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.
