4. How to Stop Time by Matt Haig

In this beautiful romance, Matt Haig tells the story of Tom Hazard, who has a rare condition that has kept him alive for centuries, living history with Shakespeare and Fitzgerald.

5. One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston

For a cynical 23-year-old August, New York City is about reaching her dreams on her terms. Her roommate and job situation has hindered her optimism, but her subway rides might prove to be just what she needs.
