    Cute story! I liked the two teen characters who meet on a train, which breaks down in a blizzard. They both desperately want to get where they are going so they flee the train in search of other transportation. Along the way, they get to know each other. There?s a twist that I saw co...

    E ARC from Edelweiss Plus This was rather fun, but it's more of a YA book due to language. Bonus points for including some adventure with the romance, and fantastic descriptions of riding on commuter trains on the east coast. Felt like a movie from the 1950s. Definitely investigate ...

    "Noah is a total romantic, I realise. I mean, I knew he was sappy-hello,cheesy flowers- but this is a different kind of romance. The desire for the world to be magical all around you." Love and Other Train Wrecks is the perfect YA novel. It's funny,sweet and a little sad. I wanna m...

    Love and Other Train Wrecks has a lot of reasons not to work out. Surprisingly it does. I mean we are talking about two teens meeting and falling in love in the course of twenty four hours, some of you may say?oh dear, insta love. Not at all. Yes, it turns out to be a romantic story ...

    Noah is a precious little bun that just needs to be protected at all costs. I'm kind of confused at how I want to rate this because it did make me think it was so stinking cute but it kind of was just an alright kind of story. So I think 3 stars its gonna be which makes me sad but it s...

    Not even halfway done when I decided to write this review and haven't changed anything since then, if that tells you anything. Love and Other Train Wrecks begins on a train with Ammy heading to her father's wedding with his new wife. On the train she meets Noah, a boy on his way hom...

    I received an advanced reader copy via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This was an adorable read that spans the entirety of a day and then some. I loved how cheesy some of the lines were and the whole concept was something I ate up like candy. One of my only complain...

    I didn?t feel the drive in the plot the way I suppose I should have, and I thought it needed more editing (lots of rumination and repetition). That said, this was good, especially if you?re looking for a book on overcoming broken relationships (familial or romantic) and enjoy trave...

    *ARC Kindly provided by Katherine Tegen Books thru Edelweiss for review* I was blindsided. Just when I thought I would get a quick story about two strangers meeting on a long train ride & falling in love, I get a book divided into three interesting parts. Love and other Train Wr...

    I do enjoy a story with a known and specific time frame to it, so I was pretty eager to get to it. I liked Noah. He?s sweet and maybe a bit nerdy, but pretty adorable. Ammy is smart and loyal and having a hard time with what?s going on in her life. Because of that, she lashes o...

    Reminded me of whichever story in Let It Snow: Three Holiday Romances where the teens are stranded on the train in the snow and then they have to leave the train and trek out into the snow and fall in love, etc. (It's been a while since I read Let It Snow, can you tell?) ...

    I abandoned this YA novel at page 55, about 15% of the way in, because I couldn't tolerate the internal and external dialogue. Teens don't think about "Sophie's fresh kale salads and lemon-roasted chicken." They certainly don't notice that dad split a bottle of Pinot Noir with his girl...

    Full review posted on Nikki's Novel Niche A cute story that proves that sometimes the journey can start off rocky and rough but the struggle is worth it in the end. I really liked both Noah and Ammy and felt their characters developed nicely throughout the story. Both start off k...

    this was an impulsive pick up at the library because it sounded very cute, but unfortunately i was left with just an ?okay? feeling, overall. i think the main reason was i failed to connect with, or even like, ammys character. she really wore on my patience throughout the book. als...

    "Regret is all about sadness and mourning. It doesn't do anything. Wishing you hadn't done something--that's about learning." "Books are supposed to remind you that life is hard for everyone. That other people have it worse than you." "Because sometimes, it doesn't matter if you'...

    This book felt like...well, a train wreck. In order to write a review that is as concise as possible (I hope), I'm going to divide my observations into three main areas. First up: Characters Um...so I thought Ammy was awful pretty much from the time she mocked The Hunger Games righ...

    I really enjoyed Konen's last book, The Romantics, and had high hopes for this book. I am happy to report, that Love and Other Train Wrecks delighted me in many of the same ways. ?Pro: Noah was a sweet cupcake and I loved him. He was not perfect, as I found out, but he had a huge ...

    This is was a cute read and I was really invested in the characters and their backstory. But I was a little lukewarm on them together and the ending was too neatly wrapped up. It was still good so I look forward to more from this author. ...

    This was so cute! I was wavering between a 4.5 and a 5, but the 5 won out! The characters really bothered me at the beginning. They were so. fucking. stupid. but they really grew on me. I got so angry at their thinking sometimes until I realized I've thought the exact same things. The ...

    Ammy doesn't believe in love. Especially not after her father left her and her mother for a hot yoga instructor. Now, she's betraying her mother's trust to watch her father's "wedding" to her new stepmother. Noah is a hopeless romantic. He's traveling to his hometown, Hudson, to wi...

    Like so many, Love and Other Train Wrecks started out fresh and interesting and cute. Then it turned for the worse into a cheesy, unimaginative waste of reading time. The characters were cliche, stupid, and selfish. And, I think, unrealistic. Instead of cheering on the main characters ...
