  20. Kristin Ravelle

    Reading Next Stop Nina is something of a departure for me but I was interested in the time travel aspect It is difficult to know whether this is true time travel or some kind of internal psychological mechanism that Nina has for re making a life that was extremely difficult for her to consciously deal with This book is beautifully written around the very difficult issues of abuse, depression, and thoughts of suicide The 37 year old Nina is somehow transported from a moment when she wishes to end [...]

  21. Linchuan

    I really enjoyed this novel I think it is a very unique take on time travel and romance, though admittedly I don t read that many romances The other realistic sci fi romance I have strong memories of Goodbye For Now, which I would also highly recommend.I especially enjoyed reading things in Nina s voice I felt an almost instant kinship to the narrator, despite having a very different personality Nina has had a very dark past, and she s often confused both by what s happening to her and the count [...]

  23. Louis Cecile

    A story and style that beautifully fit each other for a compelling read There is a weaving metaphor of the continuing relentless replay of negative thoughts in a depressive mind and revisiting your past life The tortured mind of the lead character Nina and her self doubts spiral to what seems an inevitable conclusion However the story transports Nina back through time on what appears to be an endless loop The author utilises this technique well to explore the backstory of the character and the s [...]

    This book really grabbed me in the beginning The premise early on was really interesting I came from a pretty messed up family life too, so I understood a lot about what she was saying And, honestly, it remained a pretty good book up until her love interest was introduced At one point, Nina comments on unhealthy relationships and obsessing to her friend, and that s exactly what it turns into Nina s love for Lens is borderline obsessive and really unhealthy, at one point she even says she can t b [...]

    Some may call this a time travel romance book and they would be right but they would also be missing the main beautiful point of this story This book delves into the mind of someone who is suicidal and suffers from crippling depression at times Nina has had a very difficult and abusive past But when she is about to end her life at the age of 37, she is suddenly thrown back in time to her 10 year old self Why has this happened How has this happened Is she here to right wrongs of the past Is she h [...]
