The Girl on the Train Film Release Prompts Book Sales

By Dianna Dilworth 

The film adaptation of The Girl on the Train is coming out next week, and the bestselling novel of 2015 has returned to the top of the bestsellers lists.

The title has been leading the iBooks bestsellers list for several weeks now and is currently No. 2 on Amazon’s bestsellers list in print and No. 5 for e-books.

“The film adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ The Girl on the Train is being touted as a must-see movie of the fall — and if it delivers the same kind of knock-out punch as the book, I think it’ll own the box office in October,” stated Seira Wilson, Amazon Books Senior Editor. “We know our readers love the novel. It replaced Gone Girl as the top sales and pop culture touchstone for books in 2015 and a year later it’s still hitting the top of Amazon’s print and Kindle Best Seller Lists.”
