My Thoughts On...


IMDB's summary:  "A divorcee becomes entangled in a missing persons investigation that promises to send shockwaves throughout her life."

My short summary:  "Drunk lady creepily watches a couple from a train, lady from couple goes missing, drunk lady decides to turn detective...madness & crazyness ensues."


First of all, let me say that I loved the book.  I actually missed it when I was done reading it.  I thought it was well written & just when you think it couldn't have anymore twists, it throws in one more.  However, I did figure out who the "bad person" was well in advance.

On to the movie, I went & saw it on Monday with a friend who also read the book & we both agreed that it went from the pages to the screen well.  My only complaint is that in the book, Rachel is much more beaten down & her drinking is really a problem.


I'm in total lust of Luke Evans & I think that he played Scott Hipwell with such intensity that I was even afraid.  He was more intense on screen than he was in the book, that's for sure.  Plus, I got to see his bare bottom.  Awhoo hoo!

The Girl on the Train's Grade:
B

  1. I really enjoyed this book. This is one that my husband and I both read at the same time and had great discussions over. We both can't wait to see the movie, but need to find time in the schedule.

    1. It's worth a viewing. The book is always better but the movie was good & I'll most likely buy it when it comes out. :)

  2. I liked the book, doesn't sound like the movie is all that worthwhile to see though!

    1. The book is more intense & they, obviously, develop the characters better on the page but you have to go in knowing that it isn't the book.

  3. Do you think its worth reading the book first before watching the movie?

    1. For sure! The book is great & you'll really understand the characters better when you do watch the movie.

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.


My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
