I finished reading Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough. There is a show on Netflix that is based on the book. Yes, I watched it.
Warning: there is some violence and a big twist at the end of both the show and book.
In this book, a woman named Louise meets a man named David at a bar. Louise was supposed to have met her friend at the bar, but her friend didn’t show and she knocks into David. They talk and laugh. When they start to leave, he kisses Louise. The next day Louise goes into work and sees the man from the bar and his wife. David is her new boss. They end up having an affair. Louise has terrible night terrors and she sleepwalks. Louise takes her son to school the next day and knocks into David’s wife Adele. Adele and Louise end up become friends. They go to the gym together and Adele gives Louise a e-cigarette. Louise doesn’t tell David about the friendship. Later the lies catch up with Adele and Louise and things gets ugly.
There were some differences between the two, but I’m going to tell what they are because it would spoil the twist. I loved the book and the show. Now I’m going to read The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien.
I’m sad because I just watched the last episode of Game of Thrones. It’s sad there won;t be anymore. I think they said either a movie or prequel will happen, but I don’t know when that will be on HBO.
I’m a little mad about the ending of the show. Yes, it’s a fair ending, but I didn’t like it. Yes, I do plan on reading the books sometime. Winter is gone, not coming anymore.
About a month ago I was looking for something good on tv. I read the summary of a show called Riviera on the Ovation network. It sounded like a good show so I was watched it. The season finale happens tomorrow. Julia Stiles is in the show.
Riviera is about a woman named Georgina. She married to Constantine Clios. He is a billionaire banker. Georgina buys art for Constantine. She thinks he just loves art, but there is a darker side to the art buying. She doesn’t find out until the yacht Constantine was on explodes. Like Georgina, I thought maybe he faked his death. But sadly it looks like he is really dead. She is alone in fixing the mess Constantine left behind.
I love this show. I hope Ovation will have season 2.
I love the show The Blacklist. It reminds me of Silence of the Lambs. Last season I didn’t agree with the what was in the suitcase. I thought it was the bones of Liz’s mother. But no, it’s the real Red’s bones. I do have to admit that it kinda makes sense. Red did tell Liz that her father is dead and she shot him. But Tom had told her that her father is alive. I wonder if Red told the lie to Tom so he wouldn’t find out who he really is.
This season premiere Liz teams up with her half-sister to find out who this Red is. Liz is playing along with Red being a good daughter. The only thing that is driving me crazy is that every time Liz talks to Red she sounds so fake. Red has to see how fake it is. I do think this Red probably took the real Red’s name so he could get a hold of that info that Liz had her teddy bear which this Red had released many seasons ago.
A Million Little Things is a new tv show. I had heard about it through an ad about it and I thought I would tape it. I’m glad I did.
Warning: You Will Cry. Have Tissues Ready.
The show is like This Is Us where you will make you cry every episode, but it’s so good. The show is about true friendship, the pain of loss, and struggles of life. The show is about four men who become true friends after being in locked in an elevator. The glue to the friendship is a man named John. John commits suicide. You would think since he is the glue that the friendship would unravel, but his death brings them closer together. There is some mystery to the show of why John did it. His secretary knows parts of why he did it, but she won’t tell anyone yet.
I love this show. I can’t wait for next season.
I finished reading Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. There is a tv show on HBO that is based on the book. I had taped the first episode and I hope to see the rest of the episodes on the computer soon.
Warning: this book is addicting. I couldn’t stop reading it. Warning 2: there is some violence, sad parts, and gross parts.
In this book, a woman named Camille Preaker is a reporter. Her boss asks her to return to her hometown to cover a missing girl case. It is not an ordinary missing girl case because another girl was murdered a few months before. That murdered girl had her teeth ripped out. Camille helps search for the girl until the girl turns up dead. Everyone thinks one guy is guilty, but the killer is someone totally unexpected.
I have read that the show is a little bit different. So far the first episode did have two differences. I did like the book. I found out her other book (Dark Places) is a movie on Netflix. So I will be reading it soon. Now I’m reading The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor.
You can find this book at Wordery.com, Kobo.com, and Downpour.com.
I watched The First Purge yesterday. It is the fourth movie in the Purge movie saga. It has Y’lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade, Mugga, Patch Darragh, Marisa Tomei, Rotimi Paul, and Steve Harris.
Warning: there is lots of violence.
This movie is the prequel. So they select Staten Island as the place to do their “experiment.” It wasn’t really a success. There was only person killing and it was a crazy guy. So the NFFA (New Founding Fathers of America) brought in missionaries to help make it a success. This should have told them that people don’t really want to kill other people.
I did like this movie. I can’t wait until tonight for the tv show. I’m taping it and watching it tomorrow. Next week I’m watching Solo. It’s a robot movie.
Dietland is a new tv show. It was on AMC. They had the season finale last week. It might be on Netflix in a couple of weeks. Dietland is based on a book by Sarai Walker. I haven’t read the book.
The show is about a woman nicknamed Plum. She is overweight. She has a job as being a ghostwriter for a magazine. Another aspect of the show is a group called Jennifer who terrorizes men and kills them. Plum ends up losing her job and finds out who is behind the group Jennifer.
I debated at first about taping the show, but I was intrigued with the mystery of Jennifer so I taped the show. I’m glad I did. The show does bring up alot of issues.
Reverie is an awesome new tv show. It came on NBC. They had the season finale of it this Wednesday. It reminds me of another dream show that was on earlier and a Black Mirror episode. This show should be on Netflix in a couple of weeks.
Reverie is about a company who makes a computer program that allows users to dream up other worlds. But people were stuck in the program because they didn’t really want to leave to face the real world. This caused people to have really bad health problems in the real world. (by the way, the man who played President Palmer on 24 and does the Allstate ads is on this show.) A woman named Mara helps the company with pulling people out of the computer program.
The season finale left a cliffhanger ending. I don’t know if there will be another season. I hope so.
There are two things that have blown my mind lately. One I will hopefully post about on Friday. It deals with the book I’m reading which I hope to finish reading by Friday.
The other thing is a tv show that I have been watching. The show is called One Strange Rock. I had watched an episode with my mother (she was falling asleep through some of it) on Father’s Day. She keeps telling me that I need to see the other episodes. I decided to tape the show.
The show is hosted by Will Smith (love him). The show talks about our planet Earth. I have learned some stuff from watching the show. I always thought that it would be easy to move people to another planet like some movies out there. But we as a people forget the planets are moving all the time. So it will be hard to get people to another planet if we needed to. The show also talked about how gravity would make it hard too. And radiation would be another hard factor.
