Fly me To The Moon by Alyson Noel

When flight attendant Hailey Lane learns the rest of her trip has been cancelled and she can fly straight home to spend her birthday with her boyfriend Michael, she's thrilled. Her early arrival will allow for some additional date night prep time, a definite bonus as she's convinced Michael is about to propose. But when she walks through the door, the surprise that awaits her is not at all what she expected. And as she grabs her bags and flees the scene one thing is clear-her entire future has just been rerouted. So Hailey does the only thing she can: she sets out on a worldwide trip to fix a broken heart. And thanks to free flight passes and long layovers in exotic locales, she finds herself with more options than she could have ever imagined... From New York to Paris, from Puerto Rico to Greece, Alyson Noël takes us on a trip filled with mojitos at every layover, outrageous passengers in every seat, and a cute guy at every gate, as Hailey tries to write her own happy ending.
When was the last time I read a chic-lit? Gaahhh I don't even remember, lately all I read is Vampires, haha so going back to it was refreshing. the title sounded cheesy but I reminded me so much of song... the well, duh! same title. I decided to give it a try. I read this book from cover to cover on a Friday night and you know what? I like it. Hailey's character was very relatable and likeable and the way the succession goes... First Hailey have this gay friend and I always like gay guys being best friends with a character. Next the scene where Hailey caught his boyfriend pants down in a middle of a err... sexual act with another man, that was classic LOL. The her adventure in Puerto Rico, Paris, Amsterdam and Greece after a layover was fun. Then snugging the cute guy who later on became her literary agent was cute. Ok so the ending was not that great and I was expecting more but most part of the book was adventurous. Also the plot and the characters were a bit of a stereotype. But funny stories of a Flight Attendant horrors was informative, amusing and hilarious, I couldn't even imagine the bullshit that they have to endure because it's part of their job. All in all, Fly me to the moon is one quick read, the story wouldn't stick with you and will never have an impact but it is very entertaining.
