Nadia gets the 7.30 train every morning without fail. Well, except if she oversleeps or wakes up at her friend Emma’s after too much wine.

Daniel really does get the 7.30 train every morning, which is easy because he hasn’t been able to sleep properly since his dad died.

One morning, Nadia’s eye catches sight of a post in the daily paper:

This was exactly what I wanted to read at the exact right time and WOW I really, really liked it! It wasn't a perfect book and there were definitely some parts where I felt like the will-they-won't-they dragged out a liiiittle too long, but this was still SO MUCH FUN and totally cheered me up on what otherwise would have been a really poopie Monday. I recommend checking out the audiobook bc it was partly narrated by Carrie Hope Fletcher and that honestly might be part of the reason why I liked t ...more

Our Stop is basically a millennial You’ve Got Mail - the author’s inspiration is evident even before the obvious references from Nadia. I love You’ve Got Mail. I thought I would love Our Stop. I wanted to love it so badly. The idea is wonderful - I was so excited about a weird pen pal relationship through the newspaper between two people whose lives keep intersecting without them knowing. I am a sucker for a good romcom, and I am a millennial -- I am the prime target! But man, I did NOT like thi ...more

*Many thanks to Avon Books UK and Netgalley for the advance copy in return for an honest review*

I was really excited about this book. The synopsis sounded really cute, Nadia sees a post in the local paper,
"To the cute girl with the coffee stains on her dress. I'm the guy who's always standing near the doors...Drink sometime?"
She realises it is about her and so begins the story...

It was cute, funny and sweet, and parts of it did make me smile. I would say that you would really enjoy this if you l

Our Stop is a fun rom-com story about Daniel who has a massive crush on Nadia. Daniel keeps seeing Nadia on his 7.30am Northern Line tube on the way to work but he's too shy to approach her. To grab her attention, he decides to leave her a message in a London newspaper in the 'Missed Connections' section. Nadia is intrigued and keen to know who the mysterious Train Guy is. The two exchange a few messages in the paper, but unfortunately things don't go as planned and Nadia and Daniel kee

If you follow *ANY* UK instagrammers you cannot help but have seen the fluorescent cover of ‘Our Stop’ being waved at the camera in multiple boomerangs. The author has developed an audience via Instagram, and I count myself among that population. Having read her previous two non-fiction efforts I was curious about her first novel and was willing to take a chance on a book outside of my usual reading genres. The number of glowing reviews it had already received from the aforementioned instagramme ...more

A sweet funny story of perpetually late, disorganised, honest and kind-hearted Nadia and shy, all-round-good, romantic Daniel.
Nadia has just come out of a really bad relationship and feels she needs to change her lifestyle and daily routine to make it calmer, healthier, more organised. One of the changes in her routine is making sure she does get on that 7.30 am train to work. And so she does..on Monday, sometimes even Tuesday. Then life creeps in, late nights with friends, Netflix, too much win

I really enjoyed this light and witty RomCom.

Twenty-nine year old Nadia has had a few hard relationships and is disillusioned with love. Will she ever find her perfect guy? Her life was a bit of a muddle but she had a new plan and she will become a beacon of organisation and the rest will fall in place.
On the first day of her new plan she sees an advert in the ‘Love Connections’ column in the paper talking about “the cute blonde girl on the 7:30 train.” Could this be her?

Our stop
is a very sweet modern romance. If you’ve ever been on the London tube you definitely can relate to Daniel. We’ve all been there, we’ve all seen a nice person and fantasize a little bit about it. I just want to warn you and say that this book definitely portrays a slow-burn romance. At times it can be infuriating because of all the missed chances at meeting Danie

[ARC from Avon Books via NetGalley] There is a lovely story somewhere in this book, but it took a lot of motivation (and quite a bit of skimming) to get through to it. I think most of the issues could be solved with editing, though. There are still quite a lot of typos in the ARC manuscript, for example, that I’m sure could amended before publication. But I also frequently felt the need for a stronger editing, particularly when the characters’ inner dialogue got too long and repetitive.

While Our Stop may have made me smile me smile, once or twice, it mostly frustrated the living daylights out of me.

Our Stop implements a similar gimmick as quite a few other romances: from new book releases such as The Flatshare—where the two leads develop feelings for one another through post-it notes—to the classic You've Got Mail...
In Our Stop Nadia and Felix develop romantic feelings for each other by carrying a sort of conversation, if not flirtation, in the Missed Connections

I honestly don’t know why, but this book annoyed the hell out of me. I wanted to chuck it across the room. It felt contrived and false and just totally unbelievable.
I like the idea of the book, but it just didn’t work for me. Sorry.

This was a cute and humorous novel that resembles what can often be seen in a romantic comedy on screen. However, the premise surrounding the originating story makes it difficult for me to get behind this novel. I am all for unrealistic romance comedies and "meet cutes". But this plot line originates from this male main character overhearing the female main character (who's also coincidentally young and attractive) in a conversation and being interested in her from what she's saying.

What a lovely story! I didn’t really know what to expect going into this one. The cover and synopsis caught my attention on NetGalley and I was delightfully surprised when I was approved.

If you haven’t heard about this one, it’s about Nadia and Daniel. Nadia tries to catch the 7:30 train each morning. Sometimes she’s successful, sometimes not. She’s trying to get her life in order and organized. Daniel always catches the 7:30 train. He hasn’t slept that great since his dad’s unexpected

I received a copy from Harper Collins Canada in exchange for a honest review.

Our Stop is definitely going to be one of those books where you absolutely hate it or love it. It gets really frustrating a lot of the times because it plays on the idea of fate. The idea that if you miss one beat or second, you might miss the love of your life.

Surprisingly, I was not annoyed at this story even though in the end, I kept slapping my forehead and kept screaming WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY CAN'T YOU GUYS

This is indeed 'Serendipity' reborn. I loved that movie and so was in no doubt got engrossed with this prettily written novel. With an exciting start (Nadia's first day of new beginnings), the story turns out to be unputdownable halfway through. I am not a regular fan of dual narration, but here I grudgingly admit that the technique was perfect.
There are so many near misses to make you groan aloud in frustration and will also push you to see it to the end. And the meeting at last . . . ah! it w

Unfortunately, this book wasn’t for me. I really, really wanted to like this book. I mean, look at the cover art! It’s bright, gorgeous and paired with the premise seems like the perfect rom-com in a book. Sadly, there were just one too many things in this book that didn’t quite gel for me. I’ve read some reviews that are a complete 180 to mine though, so perhaps it was just me who didn’t get the FEELS with this book.

This story follows always-unorganised Nadia and completely organised Daniel in

I can relate to Nadia and her pressing snooze too many times and needing caffeine to be a normal functioning human. I can relate to Daniel needing routine and certainty. I really enjoyed the parts about muscle memory and storing trauma. But even with all these things that scream “you should like this book” I just didn’t happen to connect with it. I started enjoying it more around the halfway point. I felt like the first half took a long time setting up the story. It ended up having a cute and ch ...more

Lighthearted, sweet, modern rom-com

Nadia and Daniel are both on the 7.30 train every morning, that is when Nadia doesn’t sleep in and is then running late for work. Nadia's intelligent, single and pretty but completely disorganised. She has a job in AI (Artificial Intelligence) and is trying to get her life into order.

Daniel has a crush on Nadia and he just can’t work up the courage to speak to her on the train so in the hope to connect, he leaves a message

- they didn't meet until about 80% of the way through the book
- Daniel is the most white bread boring ass character I have ever read
- the guy Nadia dates that is included in maybe 4 chapters was more interesting & appealing than him
- Daniel was given virtually no character traits other than having a dad who died & having a shit roommate
- Nadia was given virtually no character traits other than being in an abusive relationship & having 2 friends
- situations are constantly written

This book makes me want to hop on the tube and find my soulmate, but unfortunately, Saskatoon does not have a “tube”, so I’ll have to settle for reading cute meet cutes instead of experiencing them.

Our Stop has only 3.7 stars on Goodreads, which shocked me. I’m giving this book 5 stars. It’s cute, witty, and actually had some genuinely hilarious scenes. I literally laughed so hard at one part that tears streamed down my face (the part where Daniel is attempting to flirt with some stran

I hadn't really heard anything about Our Stop prior to starting this book and had only bought it on a whim because it sounded like something that would be right up my alley. However, while it was altogether a good book, it didn't fully live up to my expectations.

Our Stop was a very quick and entertaining read and it made me laugh out loud many times. I really liked the humor in this book even though there were a few sentences that were supposed to be funny in here I could have done without. Jus

This book was a snoozefest. Slow, long paragraphs and conversations that were kinda pointless, I ended up skimming this book to the point where I thought 'why am I even wasting my time reading this'. I mean, there was a bit about how he holds his mug but it's too hot so he switches to the handle with the other hand. Is this even necessary? There's just too much information in it that's not needed, just get on with the story.

Alas, I DNF'd this.

I loved the cover of this novel. It is bright and really caught my attention and it fits well with the story. The book was well written and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was mostly based around the characters of Daniel and Nadia and their near misses of becoming an item. The story was quite comedic in places and it was a really enjoyable, fun read. The writing was smooth and the whole story flowed really well. I haven't read anything from this author, Laura Jane Williams, before but as I really en ...more

This book is the very definition of a perfect, chick-lit, Summer read! It features lovable and complex characters, hilarious writing and relatable situations which all work together to create an adorable, fluffy romance. I adore Nadia’s character and the predicaments she finds herself in are very close to home! Equally, Daniel’s character provides amazing representation of a modern, kind, thoughtful man. I just think the whole concept of this story is so unique and because of the way that you gr ...more

OMG... reading this book was like watching paint dry.
I LOVE contemporary romance, but I almost DNF'd this one.
The book starts just fine, the characters are introduced and the premise is lovely. However, the author insists on going around in circles with the plot, the pacing is bizarrely slow, and in the end, when the hero and heroine finally meet and get a chance to be together, the book ends. No gratification at all...
