Come for the train, stay for the love ❤️
Come for the train, stay for the love ❤️
😍😍😍😍 such a sweet, fluffy story. My heart is full and hopeful for this innocent love. Would be such a fun trip too and a beautiful way to meet incredible people 🚂
This was definitely a YA read. It was sweet but not as developed as I‘d hoped. I definitely enjoyed the characters and would love to see more about the families ❤️
Checking off my #bookspinbingo board
This book was such a cute read. It was very well written. Sentence full of poetry and every element mentioned had their own clear purpose that came together very nicely at the end. It also had a happy ending, which I always enjoy. Would definitely recommend to romance readers.

Hugo‘s girlfriend, Margaret Campbell, broke up with him & left him with 2 tickets for a train trip across North America. Her name is on the bookings for non-refundable the trip. Hugo needs someone with the same name to accompany him on the trip. That‘s where Mae (Margaret Campbell) comes in. They travel the country together and discover it was more than a trip.

An ooey-gooey-two-teens-on-a-train love story. 💕 Book 15 #YApril
I really liked this book. It was quiet and sweet if that makes sense. It reminded me of that one summer so many of us have when we are not quite full-fledged adults but are distinctly aware that those who are in our life for that brief space of time might completely change the trajectory of our life.
Cute and romantic and adorable and just what I needed today! Loved it!
“most things are easier than you think, it‘s deciding to do them that‘s hard”
This book is adorable and going so fast. Perfect to keep me occupied from the scary howling winds outside which have already taken out some of our fence. 🥺
I‘ve been on a rom com kick lately. Also, hi guys, I‘m still alive... I kind of disappeared for a while...🤷🏼♀️
One less book to pack. #tbr #booknlunch #soupnstory

The parent in me was horrified that they did this but the rest of me thoroughly enjoyed this story. Both of the MCs were sweet and smart and respectful each other. I loved that they both had close relationships with their families, as I get tired of parents in YA books being either obstructive or clueless. It was a bit predictable but I was exactly in the mood for this. 👍💙
I've randomly encountered lots of Denver mentions in this week's reading. 🧡💜💚 And this one even includes our fabulous local bookstore. 😊
I love the word gobsmacked and feel that it should get a lot more use. 😁 Also, I've only just started this book but I'm completely charmed so far by Mae's dads and Hugo's siblings.
Something different from fantasy! Could really use a light read! 🥰
This tale begins when Hugo is dumped by his girlfriend, and he has a non-refundable trip planned for them. Hugo decides to put an ad out there, to see if there is a woman who would like to join him on this cross country train trip. That is where we meet Mae. She is looking for an adventure after not being accepted to the film school of her choice.

Very much enjoying this fluffy romantic #currentread. Jennifer E Smith is my go-to for realistic, cute contemporary YA. Highly recommended.
This is what she loves best about them, the way they carry each other, silently and automatically, when the other needs it.
This is a really cute YA novel about two complete strangers who wind up traveling by train together across the U.S. The circumstances on how this came to be is one of the best parts so I‘m not giving that away. The whole story takes place over one week but, gosh, a whole lot takes place during those seven days. It was very entertaining and I really cared about what happened to both of the main characters, Mae and Hugo.
Well, I certainly got my fill of rom-com this summer while working my way through the #MMD Summer Reading Guide. 7 books left to read (out of 30). Whew!!
Such a cute story! I always love hearing how people met, and when they fell in love. Mae and Hugo‘s story hit all the spots! Both characters have interesting back stories, that made this book hard to put down. The audio version was great! #Book17of2019
This was a cute, easy read. I liked the two main characters and I‘ve always wanted to travel across the country on a train so the story was fun. As a not so YA reader of YA, I did find myself saying, “Your parents will be so worried!”, but it didn‘t get in the way of my enjoyment. (From the Modern Mrs Darcy summer reading list)
“... stories are magic.”
Starting a new book! One of the many I‘ve gotten from the library in the last week. I don‘t know if there‘s any #StrawberryWine in the story, but maybe! (I realize this is sort of a cheat) #SongsofSummer
5/5 Stars. Jennifer E Smith knocked it out of the park yet again! A cross country road trip between two unlikely people. Great book.
An adorable story of teenage love. I listened to the audio book, and really enjoyed the narrators. They did a nice job bringing Hugo and Mae's voices to life. I loved the train setting, and really appreciated how the author wove in themes of race and non-traditional family structure without being too heavy-handed. A feel good book that's just the right side of light and sweet.
“You don‘t know what happiness is - what it really means - until it‘s taken away from you. Then you realize the world will never be as bright as it was.” Page 98
Started this book, and just like her other books, I‘m enjoying it immensely!
“The bestselling author of Windfall and The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight returns with a meet-cute romance about Hugo and Mae, two teens who are thrown together on a cross-country train trip that will teach them about love, each other, and the futures they can build for themselves.”
Super cute story of romance and self-discovery. 🚂

This was the cutest book!!! I laughed, I cried. It was the perfect fluff book. It made me so happy!!!

So good and cute!
#SpringintoReading day 10 - Siblings.
One of the main characters in this book is one of a set of sextuplets.
And they are not in it a lot, but when they are, I just love their dynamic.
I am in love with this book - my only complaint is that it isn't longer. This story is so sweet while still touching on some tough subjects. I just adored Mae & Hugo (and their families), they had brilliant chemistry and their banter was great, too. Getting to know them, watching them get to know each other and accompanying them on their journeys was heart-warming. I also loved that the story centered around a cross country train ride. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I know it's late, but here I am, drinking orange juice.
Day 6 #SpringIntoReading- books and beverage
I just picked this up from the library.
I know I am reading Silksinger right now, but I've had Field Notes on Love on hold for a while now, and if I don't finish before it's due, then I won't be able to renew it because there are other holds placed on it.
Also I am really in the mood for YA contemporary romance.
My husband got me a Kindle paperwhite ❤ because when you work in a library, why not. For real though, it is really nice to read on this and easy to take with me but I still love my hardback books 📚🤓
Hugo is about to set off for a week train ride across America when his girlfriend breaks up with him. The only problem is the tickets are in her name and he needs someone named Margaret Campbell to board the train and use the hotels. So he puts on ad online and Mae answers the post. Little does she know by answering this post it will change both of their lives. This book gave me all the warm and fuzzy feelings!
Spending this Friday night relaxing. Man of man has it been a week! Thank goodness it is Friday! #fridaynightbookclub
