Recent Reading | The Girl On The Train


I love a good mystery novel, the type that has your mind turning from page one trying to piece together clues and solve the puzzle before the author clearly reveals it. This summer, one of my best reads has been ‘The Girl On The Train‘ by Paula Hawkins, which I downloaded to my Kindle after hearing people compare it to one of my all-time favorites, ‘Gone Girl.’ The premise is very similar: a married woman disappears and you can’t quite figure out what happened to her, if anything. As the story progresses, secrets of the main characters are exposed and everyone looks suspicious enough that you don’t know what to believe until the end. If you like mysteries, and especially if you liked ‘Gone Girl,’ I definitely recommend this one! The plot is clever and keeps you guessing what character’s motives really are even in the last chapters.

What has been your best read so far this summer?

    I’m reading this one right now and loving it! I have about 100 pages left and it’s getting crazy. It really is like Gone Girl, which is probably my favorite book.

    I really need to finish this book, I’m so bad when it comes to reading. I started on holiday, came home and I haven’t picked it up since.

    Your making me want to read both books! I haven’t read a good mystery book in a while. Right now I’m reading Anna Karenina.

  • Brittany

    I’m loving “All The Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr. It is easily one of my favorite books that I’ve read in the last year!

  • Leeann

    Bel Canto was definitely my favorite book so far this summer! I thought The Girl on the Train was okay, but not nearly as good as Gone Girl! I felt like it wasn’t as shocking as I would have liked it to be. Still a good read!
