As I have stated more than once, I enjoy a good book! Well I just finished one that I cannot stop talking about. The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid – this book had me so intrigued, I never wanted it to end. Reid is one of my favorite authors, after reading Maybe In Another Life about a year ago I made sure to read all her other books.
Before diving into this book I just want to speak abotu Taylor’s writing. It is so EASY but it also makes you think. I know some would call it ‘chick -lit’ but it so much more than that. Her books dig deep into something, the way she explains relationships while also making you evalute your own personal ones. Her character choices are continously superb – you fall in love with, if not one BUT ALL OF THEM. You feel as if they are real and that you have a special connection with them.
Now, about Eveyln Hugo – she is beautiful, fabulous and flawed, which always makes for an ideal main character. She has been a Hollywood icon since the 50’s and now she is ready to tell her life story, the REAL one. She calls on journalist Monique Grant to help her write her scandalous story, but the question is why? A tale of love, loss, friendship, abuse, fame, secrets and SO MUCH MORE.
It is hard to put this book down because it keeps you wanting more. The best part about this is that you THINK by the cover and title that you know what this book is about. Chapter after chapter makes you realize that you actually have not one clue what is going on! We all know what a dark place Hollywood can be, Reid gives you a preview of what it meant to be a Hollywood Star between the 50’s and 80’s.
If you have not read this book I BEG YOU TO BUY OT ASAP! You can thank me later.
