Who Would YOU Want To Sit Next To You On A Plane?!

I told myself that this year {2015} I was going to start reading more!  I had been re-reading the Harry Potter series and got to book 3 before wanting something new.  I watched Twilight on New Year's Day and decided to start re-reading that, then my good friend Chelsea gave me The Rock Star In Seat 3A.

I fell so hard for this book last night that I couldn't stop reading it.  I told myself that I couldn't go to sleep until I was halfway through and as I closed my eyes I began writing my review.  Yes I'm not even done yet and I had to start writing about it.
Hazel is a highly successful PR person for Badass Games {thing Rockstar and Grand Theft Auto}, lives in NYC and has the sweetest, cutest and best chef in the city as her live in boyfriend.  The night of her thirtieth birthday party ends with a game of who would your significant other give you a free pass with.  Hazel's has always been, but never admitted out loud, Finn Schiller of the rock band The Void.

That night before she is to leave for work trip to LA, she discovers that her boyfriend is about to propose.  She dodges the subject and heads to her early morning LA flight, where she gets the shock of a lifetime.  Her seat mate is none other than the celebrity crush of her adult life Finn Schiller.

What happens next?  Well what do your celebrity fantasies look like?  Hazel's are just like that and in The Rock Star In Seat 3A the reader gets to live vicariously through Hazel in a fantasy come to life!  Ok now to go back to reading and see what happens!!!

Will Hazel leave her secure, safe and happy life with her boyfriend?  Or will she let caution fly to the wind and take off with her dream love?  I'm off to find out....

Ok back, after only a couple hours and without giving away any spoilers....I'm still not sure how I feel!  The first half of the book was a huge blur of...W.O.W!  Then the ending, almost made me feel bad for falling so hard for it.  I personally read books for an escape and fantasy world...don't you?!

What ends up happening doesn't seem like it would happen in the real world and breaks the reader out of the fantasy aspect of the novel.  DO STILL read it!  I want to know what you all think!  It is a super short read at only 200 pages and I did enjoy it very much so, please give it a try and come back and let me know your feelings!  Was it just me?!

Now for the important question...who would I want to have be stuck next to me on a long plane ride?

  • Ewan McGregor
  • David Tennant
  • Matt Smith
  • Benedict Cumberbatch
  • Louise Tomlinson
  • Matt Healy {My Finn Schiller}

All British...yes!  Now YOUR turn....who would YOU want to sit next to you on a plane?!  Let me know in the comments below!  If you haven't checked out The Rock Star In Seat 3A you should!  Then let me know what you think, I need someone to fan-girl with!

That seems like a fun read! I gotta admit, I think it would be awesome to sit next to Stephen King on a plane. Pharrell would probably be fun, too.

Hadas said...

Putting on my hold list :)
Ooh fun question.
Jennifer Lawrence- She once mentioned she discussed HP on plane rides and I'm all for that.
Tom Hiddleston- He's a Classics major, we'd have loads to discuss.
JK Rowling- Ooh boy.
Russell Brand- Def good convo there if not entertaining
Jimmy Fallon- <3

Natalie Patalie said...

Yup...adding this to my list! I love that you listed Ewan McGregor! He's so handsome <3 I might also pick Joseph Gordon-Levitt. He's handsome and seems so nice!

Megan Gotch said...

Usagi said...

Meghan Sullivan said...

2. Chris Evans
3. Ed Sheeran
4. Richard Maddden
5. Mark Ronson

Katie OhToFeelPretty said...

1. Garth Ennis or Mike Mignola
2. Stephen Fry
3. Matt Ryan (okay, so I probably wouldn't talk just fangirl quietly but damn that would be fun)
4. Scott Sigler
5. Guillermo Del Toro

(also Doug Jones and Jennifer Lawrence)

Megan Gotch said...

Katie I am the worst nerd and had to Google your entire list minus the last 3! I would love Jenn she is amazing and so funny! xx

Megan Gotch said...

LOVE it Meghan! Didn't know Mark he is adorable! xx

Megan Gotch said...

OH he's a good one. I just saw my very first panel of his last year and he is a riot!! xx

Mindi Wooley said...

This definitely sounds like a fun read for sure! The list could go on and on, but I would LOVE to be stuck next to Benedict Cumberbatch for any period of time. Also: Chris Pratt, Dominic Monaghan, Hugh Jackman, or The Rock!!!

Megan Gotch said...

Mindi, Chris Pratt would be fun too and Hugh Jackman seems like a very down to earth sweet guy! xx

Mindy Nickel said...

Oh, I may have to check that one out! I want to read more for leisure this year. Since I work at a college, I read a lot, but mostly non-fiction and scholarly work. That book sounds like a perfect pick!

I don't know if I'd want to sit next to a celeb on a plane. I'd be so nervous that I'd probably embarrass myself!

Whitney H said...

Benedict Cumberbatch or John Krasinski or Matt Smith. Hands down!

Joie_Fatale said...

David Tennent is definitely on my list! As well as Benedict, he seems like he'd be pretty cool.
Also, Chris Pratt seems like he'd be a fun seat mate!
But I'd love to sit next to Joss Whedon and/or Jasper Fforde (my FAVORITE author) most. I'd love to ask them so many things about what they're working on, and where they're going next!!!
