Mini-Reviews: One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston, Tokyo Ever After by Emiko Jean, & Starfish by Lisa Fipps

I’ve been so bad about reviewing books that are not ARC’s. I’m taking a minute to drop a few lines about some of the other books I’ve read lately. It’s going to be short and sweet.

One Last Stop

I was in the minority and didn’t really love her last book. This one sounded so good that I decided to give it another chance. I’m glad I did because I did enjoy enjoy this one. There are some things with ending that I didn’t love. It was such a sweet romance and I loved all the supporting characters. August has a great group of friends that she ends up finding. I mean they are all so weird and quirky that it’s hard not to love them. Overall, an enjoyable read with a cute romance. There’s some supernatural elements with Jane but it’s not too crazy.


Tokyo Ever After (Tokyo Ever After, #1)

I flew through this book and read it in one day! It’s such a throwback to Princess Diaries, if you liked those movies/books from the past. It’s all set in Tokyo though and there’s the element of a romance with a body guard. I really enjoyed this one and it was the perfect light read between an intense fantasy series. I highly recommend this one if you liked any of the things I mentioned! I cannot wait for the next installment!


Starfish

This book took me by surprise! It was on the new shelf at the library and I remember wanting to read it before. I just have to point out that her name is Eliana “Ellie” and that’s what my brother is naming their baby! Haha. Anyways, this book was such a punch in the heart. Oh my gosh. I really think this needs to be required reading in school. It shines such a light on bullying. It not only applied to her school but her own family. It just made me so sad to see how she was treated by the people she was supposed to feel the safest with. Just be prepared to cry at various times in this book! I loved the heavy influence of a therapist because we need to get rid of the negative stigma. She does so much for Ellie and I think it’s so important to shine a light on that. Loved this one!

  1. I wasn’t a *huge* fan of RW&RB as well and I’ve heard some pretty mixed reviews about One Last Stop so I haven’t decided yet if I want to check it out. I’m glad you enjoyed it though! Star Fish sounds great (and I love that cover) but it’d probably make me weepy, eh? 😂 Will definitely check it out! LOL

    • Of the two, I would recommend Starfish so much more. It’s a SUPER fast read because it’s in verse. It’s such an important message too. It will make you cry but I think that’s good for this one!
