A Weekend Movie And Casual Dinner Date
I love reading and have been an avid reader for a long time now. It is one of my biggest hobbies as it really relaxes me when I find a great book that can take me on a journey. I used to and still try to read a couple of chapters of any book I am currently into right before I go to sleep. Although it’s been tougher to keep that habit going in the last year or so because of I pads and social media apps, I sometimes find myself spending too much time on the internet and before I know it I am too tired to read. I am working to change that habit and go back to reading more books at night.
A few years ago I read Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl” and absolutely loved it. It was one of those books I couldn’t put down, the characters and story were so intriguing, I could not wait to read what would happen next. I love mysteries and this book is definitely a good “dark” thriller mystery. I won’t say anything about the story as it has now been made into a movie that is currently a top box office hit. Most of the time when I read a book, the movie usually disappoints as the authors vision is lost in the translation. But I have to say this movie comes very close to the book in my opinion, which is probably because Gillian Flynn wrote the screenplay for the movie as well which I think was a great idea to keep it true to the book. It could also be the combination of great directing and filmmaking by David Fincher and the strong acting cast.
I was really looking forward to seeing this movie, so last weekend my husband and I had a casual dinner and movie date night to go see it. Going to the movies is actually one of the things we both love to do, especially this time of the year it seems like the better quality movies are released. As far as my look for our date night, I am wearing a casual weekend look with my favorite cropped trench inspired jacket that I have had for a few years with skinny ripped jeans and my pointy leopard flats that I love. It’s easy, casual look yet still very stylish. What do you think of this look?
Oh and please tell me your thoughts about this book or movie, and if you haven’t seen it or read the book, I highly recommend both.
