Book Review : Gone Girl

One and a half days down, three and a half to go! Is anyone else ready for another weekend? This girl sure is. We have engagement pictures coming up on Saturday and I am so so SO excited! I can't wait to share them with you once we get them done :)
Today I'm going to share something I really enjoyed last week--a new book. I haven't really gotten into a book since reading the 50 Shades books. I just hadn't had the time or the interest to really find something new. A few weeks ago a friend suggested that I read Gone Girl.
Once I started reading I couldn't put it down! I loved it...when I shared the storyline with Ryan, even HE wanted to read it. I think that says a lot!
To quickly sum it up (I don't want to give too much away)...
The book is based around two main characters, a husband and wife, Amy and Nick. Taking place in Missouri, Amy disappears on their 5 year wedding anniversary after an awkward homemade breakfast shared between the two. You soon find out that Nick isn't an amazing husband, and there has been strife between the two for quite some time. The reader gets a glimpse into their relationship via Amy's journal...it shows Amy as a perfectionist and Nick as a bitter jackass. You get to learn more about their relationship, and some really juicy details along the way of the investigation. Did Nick kill his wife, or is something even crazier happening?
This book will keep you hanging on from the beginning straight to the end!
Also, in case you need more proof that the book is awesome, Reese Witherspoon is on board to produce the movie adaptation of the book. How awesome is that? She's also set to star in the film, so I bet it turns into a great on screen version of the book.
What books have you read lately that were amazing? Spill the beans!

I hadn't heard about the movie and Reece being involved! I LOVED this book! It was dark and freaky and I loved every minute and each turn!
