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:

To the cute girl with the coffee st

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

*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

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

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

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

4.5 stars.

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

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

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.

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

[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.

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

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

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

“None of us is fucking up like we think we are.”

I wasn't initially planning on reading this book, but the premise sounded too cute to pass up: Boy sees girl on the metro, boy writes an anonymous message to the daily paper looking for girl, the two of them spend ages trying to locate each other and find out who is behind the messages. I'm glad I picked this up because his book was so ADORABLE. Our Stop had its frustrating moments because of the relatively

Our Stop by Laura Jane Williams is a book that has such a fun concept. The idea of two people finding true love through a post in a newspaper is romantic and enjoyable to read about. Nadia and Daniel are both likeable characters and it is easy to root for both of them. This is a perfect book for those who enjoy a great rom-com.

If there is one thing that I love, it is a fantastic rom-com. Our Stop has a Sex in the City vibe and lots of interesting and diver

It really pains me to say this, as I'm a big fan of Laura Jane Williams on Instagram. I loved her column in Red magazine and I enjoy her non fiction, but I didn't enjoy Our Stop.

The premise I was down for. A sort of You've Got Mail, will they won't they meet storyline centred around the London Underground and the Missed Connections section of what I'm assuming is basically The Metro. Sadly I

My review on www.bookread2day.wordpress.com

Wow, Our Stop is one of those romantic stories everyone is going to want to read. Love on the train, what a cute unusual scene setting, in a way to fall in love with someone, how very romantic. I was taken into my own journey of characters that I immediately got hooked into.

Nadia Fielding made a new routine to change her life, that included catching her 7.30 train every morning to work without fail. Oh my! The man standing inside the train by the door

Dnf so no rating.

I was hoping for a sweet Rom com, and while it was kind of sweet, the protagonists still haven't properly met some 50% in and I'm finding all of the missed opportunities and long passages of introspection kind of wearing.

I can see others have enjoyed this so don't let me put you off but I'm afraid I wasn't enjoying it enough to read any more.
Jodie (jodie.loves.books)
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

3.5*

It hasn’t moved me enough to be a four star, but it definitely doesn’t justify a three star. Argh!

This book was good! It wasn’t exactly what I expected but there were a lot of laugh out loud moments and an infinite number of charming moments, too. The characters were sweet (particularly Daniel!), and the friendship was absolutely outstanding. Though the writing was good and the characters were enjoyable enough, I found the pacing to be a little bit lacking - for a considerable amount of the

Our Stop is a light hearted romantic comedy from UK columnist and Instagram influencer, Laura Jane Williams.

“To the devastatingly cute blonde girl on the Northern line with the black designer handbag and coffee stains on her dress–you get on at Angel, on the 7.30, always at the end nearest the escalator, and always in a hurry. I’m the guy who’s standing near the doors of your carriage, hoping today’s a day you haven’t overslept. Drink some time?”

I must admit this fell really short of my expectations. It felt a bit clunky and as though the author's opinions (brill as they are – I love her non-fiction work) were clumsily squeezed in to the plot. It felt as though the entire novel was a framework for something more and sadly missed the mark for me. However the final few pages are magic so this rating really is a bit of a mishmash!

Our Stop is a light and sweet and funny read whose gorgeous cover and cute synopsis just meant I had to request a review copy! And while I’m pleased that I did, I couldn’t help feeling a tad underwhelmed by the pacing and how the story played out.

The story follows Daniel and Nadia, who both get the same train on a morning; and while the pair have never actually spoken in person, they converse via messages in a section of the local newspaper, Missed Connections.

This idea is incredibly sweet, but
