Goodreads Synopsis: When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village book store where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card. There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight – the perfect place for a “chance” meeting.
As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way – even if it means murder.
A new and (in my opinion) approved trailer has been released for Gone Girl! I’m really looking forward to this adaptation. I loved the book and hated the ending, but still love it overall. Go figure. This trailer is a big improvement on the first one, but I think they’re maybe giving away a lot of the best bits, and I hate when that happens in trailers. Anywho – feast your eyes on this:

Goodreads Synopsis: Jack is five. He lives with his Ma. They live in a single, locked room. They don’t have the key. Jack and Ma are prisoners.
Room is inspired by the true story of Elisabeth Fritzl, an Austrian woman who endured emotional and sexual assault while imprisoned by her father in his basement for 24 years. She eventually bore him seven children who were imprisoned with her until rescue. In Donoghue’s story, Room is home to Jack, but a prison to his Ma, who has been held captive for 7 years.
