I enjoyed this book and would recommend it for the adventurous lady. I found myself wanting to take lots of exotic trips and get away from life and reality. Isn't that what a book should do?

They say you should write what you know. Clearly Alyson Noel knows the life of a flight attendant. So many hilarious stories and situations that an ex-f/a myself, laughed myself silly. Stories and conversations from everything like, "you smell like the middle seat" to how f/a are always praying for delays unless they are deadheading home from a trip. Still, even those who know nothing of the business can totally relate and appreciate the story of friendship, heartache, discovering oneself, disco ...more

Flight attendant Hailey Lane is positive her pilot boyfriend of four years is going to propose, so when the rest of her schedule is cancelled she’s thrilled that she can fly home early. But instead of a celebratory dinner she gets a shock when she enters their apartment bedroom. Fleeing to a friend’s apartment she sets out to mend her broken heart by working more trips to Europe and taking advantage of long layovers and free flight passes.

This is pretty typical chick-lit, including a glamorous
Jul 11, 2011 Mary rated it it was ok
Cute book, but nothing special. The author went a little overboard with the flight attendant lingo, as if she wanted the reader to be SURE they know that she was an insider and knows all the inside jokes and terminology. The story is your typical "twentysomething white girl has romantic crisis, set off on journey of self-discovery, meets guys along the way and eventually finds the right one while fulfilling all her dreams." I had to roll my eyes a bit at the fact that EVERY guy she meets just ha ...more

It's easy to read Alyson Noel, because she writes as though she were really talking to you. You will laugh and gasp at this book. She is clever and witty and knows how to spin a story. This story is a must read for any woman. It takes you into the career of a flight attendant, cleverly put together, and humorously walks you through her disastrous dating stories.

The book “Fly me to the Moon” was one of the best books that I read in a long time. Reading was something that I wasn’t a big fan of, but this book got me interested real fast. There are tons of plot twists so you get so wrapped up in one then it changes right away. Many people will turn away from books like this but in this case it was actually entertaining reading it. Hailey Lane has so many decisions to make in her life that she doesn’t have time for important things. Along with her finding ...more

No tengo mucho que decir sobre este libro, porque fue un desastre de lectura. Y cuando les digo que fue malo, es porque fue así y mucho mas.

El libro platea la vida de una mujer de 27 casi 28 años de edad y su trabajo como una azafata. Bueno, hasta ahí la historia me causo interés. Luego, cuando conocemos las personalidad de la protagonista y su vida llena de todo menos estabilidad, me produjo desespero. Hailey, la protagonista realmente no tenia la menor idea de como llevar una vida, siempre com

This was a really cute, light read. Of course it had its flaws, any chick lit book does. But it was a cute story of a woman finding her way with quirky friends, terrible romances, and while traveling the world.

Hailey Lane is a flight attendant in her late twenties. She thinks she has her life figured out. Her job is going well, she has a great friend in a gay guy named Clay, she travels the world's most exotic places, and her boyfriend is going to propose. Or so she thinks. Things take a turn fo

The life of a flight attendant is not glamorous at all. Like really, you probably already know about the insane hours (who the hell flies at 3 in the morning?), the handsy passengers, and the drunk pilots. But you don't know about the kinky roommates, the cheating boyfriends/hubbies, and the weight checks every two weeks.

Hailey Lane, five years in the biz and still figuring out the kinks in the system, finds her one and only true love in her bedroom, his pants down. To make it worse, it's their

Me he leído por trabajo esta novela. Y aunque ha sido muy rápido, porque el relato está escrito de forma sencilla y amena, tengo que decir que hay géneros literarios que no acabo de entender. Uno de ellos es la denominada rama "chickLit". Lo digo sin acritud, porque en este en concreto se mezclan dos elementos fascinantes: por un lado te hace ir de una página a otra a ritmo vertiginoso pero por otro todo es absolutamente previsible y sólo se sostiene por la variedad de versiones de lo mismo.

Hailey Lane wakes up the morning of her birthday thinking she is going to have to work to fly her way home so she can celebrate with her boyfriend, who she thinks is going to propose by the end of the evening. Instead of having to work she gets to fly straight home and the surprise awaiting her is not exactly what she expected. Now, single, with no where to live, she remembers what she dose have. A manuscript that she hasn't looked at in years and a job that takes her all over the world to exoti ...more

There are so many things i totally loved about this book, but also so many reasons why i didn't actually loved the book.

It was a lot of fun reading it, it's very entertaining and it made me laugh a lot! But many, many times I found myself wondering if the story was actually going somewhere.. The whole time it was just an everyday thing and nothing actually happened at any moment, it felt more like reading a diary than a book, the end was just another day were things got better for Hailey who by

I read "Fly me to the Moon" and I found it to be a very fast and quite interesting book to read. Alyson Noel goes to great lengths to get every detail of the main character Haily Lane in the book. This made it very easy to relate and connect to the character. Yet it was just about a normal woman that lived in New York City I found myself not able to put down the book.
It had me on the edge of my seat the whole time of reading it. Suspenseful in so many ways. Learning Haily's boyfriend cheated on

I went into reading this books with relatively low expectations, especially after reading some reviews on here. I actually bought the book to read on a long flight (kind of appropriate seeing as the book is about a flight attendant and her wordly adventures).

Honestly, I liked this book and surprised even myself by how much I actually ended up enjoying it. It definitely was a 'light' read and a chick-lit type of book. Frankly, that is exactly what I was looking for. Hailey Lane, was for me, a lik

This was complete trash. So, whatever. Chicklit isn't supposed to be really deep, or believable, but come ON. The main character is a flight attendant who decides that she wants to get married. Surprise! Her pilot boyfriend is secretly gay. Who cares! She dumps him, they run into each other when they both go to the Carribean or Mexico or something (right) and he has another beard. Whatever. So she goes back home and just happens to have a fabulous friend who has a fabulous penthouse and is all j ...more
This book has been on my to-read list for years, long before I ever heard of the Evermore series. After struggling through the last two books of said series, I was a bit hesitant to read this one, but I quite enjoyed it. It's pretty standard chick lit and more than a little predictable, but Hailey's journey to her final destination was pretty fun. I also learned way more about being a flight attendant than I ever expected to know in my life, which was quite interesting. Despite the over-the-top ...more

I thought this book was alright. It was funny in some parts, sweet in some parts. Quite honestly, I picked up this book because of the title. It's one of my favorite songs I just thought "I have to have this book!" I will give it this, though- although the book is fairly predictable in some ways, it has it's (good) surprises. I won't spoil the ending or anything, and you can obviously read the summary given, but it's a good read for when you're bored. I think that's why it took me so long to get ...more

Too much reading, not enough exciting, predictable moments especially between the romances(more like sugar daddy's). Not that predictable is always good, I just couldn't see the light while reading it? (If that makes any sort of sense) I found myself halfway through the book unsure of its direction and pretty much uninterested of her life. Other than the (assuming) true facts about the life of being a flight attendant with roaming country to country, that sounds very amusing. But overall this bo ...more

"'What took you so long?' I whispered, breaking away. 'I wanted you to want it as much as I did,' he said, leaning in to kiss me again."

Swoon, swoon, SWOON! All Hailey's romances made me swoon at first. The handsome, older author, the perfect passenger that spent most his time in Paris, the Greek local, and the New York lawyer.

Most her loves resulted in funny mishaps and one will leave you guessing. This book is the perfect chic-lit filled with the protagonist following her dreams, falling in l

Fun and a quick read, Fly Me to the Moon was a great choice of light summer chick lit for me. Flight attendant Hailey Lane comes home early from a trip and finds her pilot almost-fiancé in their bed with someone else. With her whole world turned upside down, Hailey makes the most of her airline job and it's perks to travel her way all over the globe, hoping to figure out her life and maybe even find a better man along the way. It was a tad predictable, but entertaining nonetheless, filled with l ...more
