Summer blockbusters may not be fully back at the movie theaters this summer, but you can still get them in book form. And you heard it heard it here first, the debut novel ‘Falling’ by author T.J. Newman is the next big book in the thriller genre. This book reminds be of early 90s classic movie Speed, but on an airplane. I will warn you that this is one of those books that you do have to ignore a few things and not nitpick every detail, but if you do you’re definitely going to be entertained! It’s what I like to call a “popcorn thriller”.

📚 Book Review 📚

Title: Falling

Author: T.J. Newman

Publisher: Avid Reader Press

Genre: Thriller

The synopsis doesn’t give too much away and I don’t want to either. It’s more fun that way. So here’s all you get:

You just boarded a flight to New York. There are 143 passengers on board. What you don’t know is that 30 minutes before the flight your pilot’s family was kidnapped. For his family to live, everyone on your place must die. The only way the family will survive is if the pilot follows his orders and crashes the plane. Enjoy the flight.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This is a solid debut. I read this in nearly one sitting. (I even took my brand new #primeday kindle in the bathtub because I didn’t want to stop reading!) It starts off with chaos, confusion and fear and just keeps on going. The author was a flight attendant for 10 years and rumor has it she begun writing this novel on cocktail napkins during red eye flights!

Thank you @netgalley and to the publisher @avidreaderpress for the eARC read now in exchange for my honest opinion.
