Here we are, another Wednesday.
What am I reading this week?
Last week I said I had several books to choose from, but I decided to go with an "older" book. Not a classic, but a book published in 2012. Gone Girl.
I read the book in 2012, and while I liked it, I didn't LOVE it. Most of my friends loved it so I seriously wondered if something was wrong with me.
Then the movie came out in 2014 and I really really liked the movie. It's not like me to like a movie more than a book. In fact, there are really only 2 other books where I thought the movie was better: The Notebook and Jurassic Park.
Okay, so I decided to give Gone Girl another chance, but this I would do it by audio book.
Gone Girl is narrated by Julia Whelan (Amy) and Kirby Heyborne (Nick), and you can read their thoughts about narrating this book HERE.
Okay, so I am LOVING Gone Girl as an audio book. I'm not too keen on Kirby Heyborne as Nick, but I think that might be part of the story. You aren't supposed to like Nick. He's not a good guy. But Julia Whelan does a spot-on job as Amazing Amy. Gone Girl has redeemed itself.
I'm also reading the sequel to the Rosie Project; The Rosie Effect.
It's a cute story. Rosie and Don are married and Rosie is pregnant! I'm only a few chapters in, so I'll be able to discuss more next week, but it's super cute!
Have you ever liked a movie better than the book it was based on??
