The Flight Attendant: A Novel - Chris Bohjalian

I think a lot of people can relate to going out for drinks and waking up the next morning wondering "What did I do?" or the scary "Where am I?" Cassandra, however, wakes up to a different bed in a different room with a dead body lying beside her. Super creepy, huh?

I really liked how the author put me into the day to day world and the past of Cassie. She is a character that I know a lot of people can relate to and feel for. She is a totally wounded character and just living life day to day, flight to flight, and drink to drink. A lot of the book deals with Cassie's flaws, but it doesn't take away from the overall affect at all. It simply adds to the terror with this huge vice of Cassie's that she doesn't even understand could be fatal to her.

The whole time through this book, the sense of danger is at the back of my mind and my mind is going crazy with scenarios on how this is going to pan out.

An excellent read that I sped through, felt for the character and thoroughly enjoyed.

Thanks to Doubleday Books and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

I can't tell you how excited I am for these 8 reads. The reviews that are being posted all over the Internet have been great. Some of these books I have been anticipating for over a year. I hope they live up to all the hype and excitement. I have to give a shout out to the books with most beautiful cover designs; The Children of Blood and Bone, The Silent Companions and Sugar Money. Aren't they wonderful?


I had a really good reading month last month. I read eleven books. They were all short quick reads. There were no literary works in that stack so, I got through them pretty quickly. I know some of these books are pretty lofty in size and in content, but if I stay on task and read daily, I should be fine.

Rescuing Rayne (Delta Force Heroes Book 1) - Susan Stoker

Keane AKA "Ghost" is on his way home when he meets the amazing and alluring Rayne.  The night they spend together is epic, to say the least.  Not knowing when or if they will see on another again is frustrating, but in Ghost's job - it really is better that way.


Rayne is totally and completely floored by the way she looks back on her night with Ghost.  He made such an impression on her, she still feels it.  When the worst happens, is him being there a good thing?


Completely impressed with the hot topics found in this book and how they are handled.  You feel the tension rise with each page.  Both in the romance, and in the suspense.  Gripping & compelling, this story will have you wishing you had time to read the whole series right now!  I found the characters charming, and the sexy times really HOT!  I cannot wait to read the next installment in the Delta Force Heroes series.  I give this book a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

The Flight Attendant
The Flight Attendant: A Novel - Chris Bohjalian

Chris Bohjalian is an author that I can't count on to entertain me with a good story so I requested his latest book when I saw it on Netgalley. The description made it seem like something that I'd really enjoy.


This follows Cassie, a flight attendant who wakes up one morning after a one night stand next to a dead body. She can't really remember what happened and must piece it together.


I can't really say that I liked Cassie at all. The way she clung to drinking even though it was clearly destroying her life made the book a little less enjoyable. She makes it very hard to like her. As she is not likeable it made the book seem to drag on to me. Quite frankly I just got tired of reading about her.


There was some action and some twists that unfolded towards the end but I feel like some of the action should have come sooner. I would have rather had a little more action and a little less of Cassie bumbling around.


Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

The Flight Attendant by Chris Bohjalian
The Flight Attendant: A Novel - Chris Bohjalian

A special thank you to Edelweiss and Random House for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.


On Chris Bohjalian's Instagram there is a post where a reader asked him why he always wears a suit and tie to an author event and his response was that it was a way of showing respect and thanks to his readers.  I was touched by his post and thought it showed a tremendous amount of class.  In return, I would like to thank Chris Bohjalian for the opportunity to read and review an advanced copy of The Flight Attendant.


Bohjalian, known for several of his books including an Oprah pick (Midwives), is a gifted writer.  Every novel he crafts is vastly different from the last, yet equally as rich in character development and plot. 


In The Flight Attendant, we have a flawed, self-sabotaging unreliable narrator—Cassandra Bowden is a flight attendant with a taste for adventure and alcohol.  Being a binge drinker, Cassie suffers from self-loathing and the odd blackout.  Waking up in a hotel room in Dubai after a one night stand with a dead body is beyond blacking out.  Could she have actually killed him?  Afraid to involve the authorities, Cassie starts lying to cover up any speculation that she could be involved.  With each lie she tells, she increasingly looks more guilty.  How far will she go before the truth comes out that she was with the passenger who was found dead in his hotel room?      


I recommend picking up this character-driven thriller/mystery.  Bohjalian weaves an engaging tale of regret, murder, and mystery through strong female characters.
