BOOK REVIEW 📚 . I’ve seen The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo around #bookstagram and I’m a sucker for all books Hollywood celebrity and New York society. (Swans of Fifth Avenue anyone!?) They’re my guilty pleasure and I loved the premise of this one. . Evelyn Hugo is a world famous actress and she’s decided she wants her life story told on her terms. She connects with a journalist to work on her biography and the book takes you through Evelyn’s life, from humble beginnings to mega superstar to the fade to obscurity. . I won’t share anything beyond that but this book was fabulous. Evelyn is strong AF, with a vulnerability she keeps close to herself. It’s a story of relationships, power, self expression, and the struggle to stay true to yourself both for yourself and the ones you love. . I give it 4 stars and highly recommend this book. It’s a fiction book, but it’s perfect for anyone that loves memoirs. It’s so well written and believable that I kept wondering if it’s based on someone real. . Have you read it? Any recommendations for books that are similar to this or Swans of Fifth Avenue? 🥂
Hi bookish friends! How are you? What have you read and loved (or disliked) recently? We got back from Italy this weekend and had a really wonderful trip. We stayed in Positano, visited neighboring villages and Pompeii, drank our weight in cappuccinos and ate a lot of 🍕 and 🍝. I didn't have Internet on my phone so it was a really nice 10 days of unplugging, exploring, and soaking up time with my favorite person. 📖 I really enjoyed The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (didn't see that twist coming) and found it to be a really refreshing storyline. It's my first book by Taylor Jenkins Reid and I'm looking forward to reading more by her! Also, there's a buddy read chat tonight at 5PM EST organized by @jennsbookvibes for this book if anyone would like to join! Just message me. 💌
Happy Friday my friends! 🙌🏻 and Happy Birthday to me! 🎂🎊 . I’m starting off this beautiful morning enjoying some, well deserved, ME time and reading THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO by @tjenkinsreid . Then I’m off to enjoy a Birthday Breakfast! 💃🏻 .

Picture this: you are very much in love with your high school sweetheart. He was your biggest crush in high school and made you feel seen, made you feel heard. Fast forward a few years, he proposes to you. You promise to live the way you want, and decide to travel the world instead of limit yourselves to your parents expectations. You have a beautiful wedding, and are married for almost a year. One day, he decides to go on a trip alone. He gets on a helicopter. The helicopter crashes. Your husband is dead. And he’s never coming back. You mourn. You grieve over him for years. Until you run into on of your old friends from high school. You give yourself permission to fall in love, but promise yourself never to replace your first love. He proposes. You say yes. A few months later you get a phone call. Your first love is back. He is alive. He’s been alive this whole time. He’s coming home. Now you have a husband and a fiancé. What would you do? 😱 • @tjenkinsreid became one of my favourite authors after The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo which IS OFFICIALLY one of the best books I’ve ever read. I decided to check out more of her novels and I have to say I LOVE her writing style. Her writing captures me and draws me into the story and I forget all about my surroundings. It’s truly wonderful! Make sure you check her out if you haven’t already! 🙏🏼 . . #bookstagram #bookclub #booksofinstagram #bookblogger #bookaholic #bookworm #books 📚 #booksmart #onetrueloves #truelove #thesevenhusbandsofevelynhugo #taylorjenkinsreid #evelynhugo #unitedbookstagram #booksandbougie #favouriteauthor

“When you dig just the tiniest bit beneath the surface, everyone’s love life is original and interesting and nuanced and defies any easy definition.” The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo Taylor Jenkins Reid 🍂 I have to admit, this book caught me off guard. I’ve been excited to read it, especially with the group read @jennsbookvibes organized. My reservations rested on the fact that I am not a fan of Hollywood (never see movies) and despise the superficiality of that world and the facade “stars” live behind. So, my expectations did not match the outcome. This novel is anything but superficial. It has a very intriguing plot (covering BIG issues- but no spoilers here) all woven around multi- layered characters. This should definitely be on your summer reading list because it DID feel like an escape, but left me thinking deeply as well. Ultimately, isn’t that why we read?
Update on bookdrop,my #bookfairy by proxy went back to the scene of the drop and eyespied this frenchman reading the drop! (Highly irregular & probably uncalled for spying but it paid off)!! See our inscriptions that we wrote inside. I hope he reads the book and bookfairies it along or leaves it somewhere else! I hope he reaches out and admits he picked up our #evelynhugo !!! Anyhow, @kels_reads tagged me to do this #bookstagramhabits tag, so here goes: 🌱 Phone camera or Pro camera - my samsung phone! Why lug two peices of equipment if youre not a pro? 🌱 Props or Simplistic - mine are always simplistic, but i must admit, i do drool.over beautifully placed props or pics outside or on bodyparts like next to legs or beautifully manicured hand. Funny note: my dad said "those are photoshopped - noone has THAT many props" and i laughed! He wants me to photoshop. I cant be bothered. 🌱 Dark or Light - i never noticed any darkly lit posts but if theyre done right i love those as well. Mine will.always be in the light. So those are my not too surprizing answers. I hope you enjoy my friends invasion of leFrenchie's privacy to bring you an inside look at the fruits of our #fairydrop .
#ParisDrop and im so upset that i forgot to put the sticker on the outside (bookfairy novice). Anyhow, theres a story behind this drop and how a #bookfairy in Philadelphia got this book to the #tuileries garden. Youll see part of the story in the last slide of the pics. Please @bookfairiesworldwide help.someone find this wonderful book in this Parisian garden!! #bookfairiesofPhiladelphia . @bookfairiesinparis please repost so someone finds this - i messed up and put the sticker on the inside. Hopefully someone in Paris picks up this lovely book and lets us know theyve found it. So incredibly grateful to my lovely friend Deanna who took #evelynhugo everywhere with her - on trains, to cafes, to #downtonabby .... im so excited. This was an exciting #firstdrop for me as a bookfairy even if it was done by proxy!! Enjoy it beautiful stranger!!!
I am not really into the 'Hollywood darling' thing but I am doing a buddy read and this book was really good! I have always believed a lot of relationships are more for publicity than anything so I appreciated that take on things. Evelyn was an amazing character that I was attached to even through her worst moments. Thanks to all my buddy readers (I don't have the tagging thing down.) I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did! #shortbookreviews #booksarethebest #bookstsgram #bookstagrammer #readersofinstagram #readerforlife #evelynhugo #hollywood
“Sometimes reality comes crashing down on you. Other times reality simply waits, patiently, for you to run out of the energy it takes to deny it.” — Taylor Jenkins Reid ———————————————————————— Guys I am LOVING The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo right now! I stayed away from it for a while bc of the hype but I couldn’t resist for long and I’m glad I didn’t because it’s amazing! One of my favorite tropes in literature is when an older person tells younger person their life story and this one is no exception! . Question: What’s your favorite trope that you see while reading?! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #bookstagram #bookish #book #booksofinstagram #books #taylorjenkinsreid #sevenhusbandsofevelynhugo #evelynhugo #booktube #morgyyreads #read #reader #reading #amreading #igreads #booknerd
✨Book Review✨ Okay, okay, okay, y’all were right! This book was wonderful. I could not put it down! Pages and hours flew by before I came up for air. It’s been a while since a book has so completely consumed me. . Is The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo a literary masterpiece? No. Do I care? Absolutely not. It was a JOY to read. . The real strength of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s novel is Evelyn. She is a badass bitch and I adore her. Evelyn is determined, ruthless, and unapologetic. Even in our current moment of pro-feminist pop culture, it is still rare to see a woman who so unabashedly goes after what she wants. Evelyn does whatever she needs to do to succeed and I was happy to cheer her on. . To be honest, when I started this novel I was expecting mindless fluff, but Evelyn’s story is about so much more than the glitz and glam of Hollywood. Reid includes commentary on whitewashing, abuse, slut shaming, homophobia, loyalty, friendship and, of course, love. At its core, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is about a strong woman who knows her worth and that is something I can ALWAYS get behind. . I am so glad y'all convinced me to read it! I will now be shoving it at everyone, starting with my mom! Yay. #TheSevenHusbandsOfEvelynHugo #TaylorJenkinsReid #BookstagramMadeMeDoIt #BookReview

Oh wow! The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by @tjenkinsreid was a luxurious journey through a starlet’s life. We follow Evelyn’s journey from start to finish and by the time I finished reading I truly believed she was a real woman. Evelyn experiences some very real issues that you don’t always realize celebrities go through. I loved this book from cover to cover.

Happy Monday, hope everyone’s week is off to a good start! ☺️ So I read THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO by @tjenkinsreid earlier this year and I’m still thinking about the story! It’s a huge undertaking full of complicated characters and plenty of surprises along the way. 📖 I love any stories involving Old Hollywood and Evelyn felt so real that I would forget she’s a fictional character. ✨My full review is on the site, link in my bio! 👀

I’ve been hearing about this book for the past few months and I’m SO happy I finally got my hands on it. The hype is real!!! Such a good read. I found myself waiting until I finally have the time to continue reading where I left off. 😍 • The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by @tjenkinsreid is about a famous movie star, Evelyn who has reached the end of her career. Evelyn has been the most wanted and talked about women for the past few decades. Now that she’s grown old, and has lost all of the people closest to her, she’s ready to give her first interview. This is an exclusive look to the inside of Evelyn Hugo’s life, something any magazine would pay millions to get their hands on. Evelyn requests Monique - a writer at Vivant magazine, who is at the bottom of the Totem pole, and very insecure with her position in life. Monique and Evelyn go on a journey through the life of a famous movie star, going through every detail of her life - including an inside look to all of her seven marriages. Monique has a few important questions for Evelyn. Who was Evelyn’s one true love? What lengths did she have to go to in order to achieve her success and fame? And why Monique? Why not some one more famous, more important? This book takes you on a wild ride, and clearly shows you that things are not always what they seem, especially under the spotlight. • I LOOOOVED this book. I know I say that about every book I read but out of the dozen books I’ve read this year, this is definitely one of my favourite ones. I loved Monique’s character development, I loved witnessing Evelyn’s battle between following her heart and being what people wanted her to be. It was relatable, and overall an exciting read. • What did you guys think of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid? 👒 . . . #bookstagram #bookclub #booksofinstagram #bookblogger #bookaholic #bookworm #books 📚 #booksmart #internationalwomensday #thesevenhusbandsofevelynhugo #taylorjenkinsreid #evelynhugo #unitedbookstagram
"Sometimes reality comes crashing down on you. Other times reality simply waits, patiently, for you to run out of the energy it takes to deny it." - The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, by Taylor Jenkins Reid Classic film actress Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one in the journalism community is more astounded than Monique herself. Rating: 5/5 Pages: 388 Finished: Tuesday, March 27, 2018 Don't forget, you can find a link in my bio to my Goodreads page 😊 #thesevenhusbandsofevelynhugo #sevenhusbandsofevelynhugo #taylorjenkinsreid #evelynhugo #historicalfiction #chicklit #fiction #hollywood #sevenhusbands #actress #fame #glamorous #scandalous #lifestory #diverseread #fivestars #literature #novel #reading #read #recentlyread #booklover #booknerd #bookworm #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #lovereading #ilovereading
The seven husbands of Evelyn Hugo tells two tales: Evelyn Hugo’s and Monique Grant’s. Evelyn Hugo is an award winning movie star, who, for the last two decades, has hidden herself from the public eye. She, seemingly at random, chooses journalist Monique Grant to interview her for a secret biography that can only be released after Evelyn’s eventual death. The two of them go on a journey through Evelyn’s memories, beginning with her entry into Hollywood and ending with her disappearance from the public. Evelyn’s life is filled with secrets, some thrilling, some sad, all surprising. Monique learns why she was chosen for the job and it alters life as she knows it. I absolutely LOVED this book. It surprised me at every turn and made me feel things I haven’t felt from a novel in a long time. This book has an element of the LGBTQ+ community that I did not expect, but loved, from a novel set in old Hollywood. Evelyn’s life is a crazy mixture tragedy and joy that had me in a vice grip until the very end. I would give this book a 5/5 for originality. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes love stories, wants a LGBTQ+ perspective on fame, and/or wants to jump into Old Hollywood for a few days. Great summer read! The audiobook is read by a woman with the perfect voice for Evelyn Hugo! #sevenhusbandsofevelynhugo #taylorjenkinsreid #audible #book #review #oldhollywood #bookreview #green #novel #evelynhugo #audiobook #summerreading #marriage #divorce #lgbt

|| nova recenzija || ▪ ... znači, wow... ▪ Neopisivo mi je krivo što ranije nisam uzela ovu knjigu u ruke, ali mi je neopisivo drago što sam ipak prije desetak dana odlučila zavririti u to prvo poglavlje. Doslovno mi nije dobro kada pomislim da mi je, samo zato što pripada žanru kojeg inače ne čitam, ova knjiga tako lako mogla promaknuti. ▪ Krivo mi je što je nisam pročitala PRIJE Međunarodnog dana žena - i to tjednima prije - jer evo što bi se dogodilo - vjerojatno bih sa BookDepositoryja naručila najmanje 5 komada i sve vam ih podijelila još 8. ožujka. Ne mogu se sjetiti primjerenije knjige. Jest, "Rebelice" su krasne, ali Evelyn Hugo je nešto nadnaravno... ▪ Iskreno, kad sam pročitala knjigu, čak sam obišla sve naše velike knjižare i pitala imaju li ovaj naslov - bila sam spremna kupiti baš svaki primjerak. Kakvo bi TO darivanje bilo! :D Međutim, iako knjiga nije nova, nigdje nije bilo niti jednog primjerka... Znači, skandalozno! :D ▪ Voljela bih da ne prođe ovo proljeće, a da ne pročitate ovu knjigu - morate i trebate upoznati Evelyn Hugo. Možete doslovno danas prije podne sve svoje knjige o osobnom razvoju (da, znam da ih imate, svi ih imamo) odnijeti u kantu za smeće - ova knjiga će vam taj gubitak višestruko nadoknaditi. :D ▪ Bilo bi super kada bismo dobili prijevod ove knjige. ▪ Bilo bi super i kada bi netko ustanovio Evelyn Hugo Award i dodjeljivao je jednom godišnje svim ženama koje su - na vlastito dobro i u svoju korist - njezinu životnu filozofiju i muda transplantirale u svoj život. Svijetom bi hodalo puno više sretnih i zadovoljnih žena. ;) ▪ Ljubim vas! Svakako mi javite svoje dojmove - nikada se neću umoriti od brbljanja o ovoj knjizi. ❤ ▪ Link na recenziju vam ostavljam u opisu profila. . . . . . . #thesevenhusbandsofevelynhugo #evelynhugo #taylorjenkinsreid

I tend to miss the bandwagon on hyped books. I get to them ages after everyone else has. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but I do know I’m glad to read it. Evelyn Hugo has been just as good as everyone said. I’ve been trying to squish some reading time in during lunch and before bed just to keep myself elbows deep in Evelyn’s story. I’m about to meet her third husband. I’ll let you know how it goes 😉. . . . . #booksofinstagram #bookworm #booknerd #bookblog #bookblogger #thesevenhusbandsofevelynhugo #evelynhugo #taylorjenkinsreid #fiction #currentlyreading #currentreads
Unlike anything I've ever read...😆 scandal💋, secrets✖️, and revelations 🐍. But also a story of going for what you want, and not regretting anything in the name of love. Definitely recommend it! • • Old Hollywood 1950's...Evelyn Hugo was one of the most famous and sought after actresses of her time...Years later, aging and reclusive as ever, she decides to give a tell-all interview about her glamorous and scandal-ridden life to none other than Monique Grant, an everyday, struggling reporter. As Monique delves deeper into the life of Evelyn, she learns about the real life she lived behind the cameras, the narrative behind her seven husbands, and the tragic and irreparable connections to Evelyn herself that she never knew existed...

⭐⭐⭐// This was an interesting read. It wasn't what I was expecting, and that actually disappointed me. It was a fictional tale of a movie star and her rise to fame. It was interesting in the fact that how her life was portrayed to the public eye was completely false as to how it actually was in her real life. Makes you wonder if everything you read about movie stars lives is actually accurate. I didn't really connect with Evelyn. I did really like her relationship with Harry as it was the most real of everything, but the rest was just meh for me. I have really enjoyed Taylor's other books, but this was just an ok read for me. #februaryreads #bookstagram #books #bookreview #bookworm #whatcourtneyreads #2018books #taylorjenkinsreid #evelynhugo
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, by Taylor Jenkins Reid. Captivating and most excellent read.

THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO by Taylor Jenkins Reid . Full of gossip and glamour, this novel is not the kind of book I normally read. But a lot of friends raved about it, so I gave it a try. . Evelyn Hugo was a movie star. A living legend. And she is most famous for being married seven times. . Now, Evelyn wants to tell her life story, and she insists on giving her biography to a relatively unknown journalist, Monique. Why did Evelyn decide on Monique to pen her story? And what is the real story behind her seven marriages? Which one of them, if any, is the love of her life? . My thoughts: Evelyn Hugo is beautiful and irresistable, and she’s no damsel-in-distress. She’s cunning, calculative, and manipulative at times. She’s a woman who knows what she wants and goes after it. Relentlessly. You might not agree with her methods, but it’s hard not to fall in love with her. If you love strong female characters with wit and charm (despite questionable morale), The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo can be a very entertaining read. .

I have just read this book and wow, just wow! Synopsis: Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one in the journalism community is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now? Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband, David, has left her, and her career has stagnated. Regardless of why Evelyn has chosen her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career. Summoned to Evelyn’s Upper East Side apartment, Monique listens as Evelyn unfurls her story: from making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the late 80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way. As Evelyn’s life unfolds through the decades—revealing a ruthless ambition, an unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love—Monique begins to feel a very a real connection to the actress. But as Evelyn’s story catches up with the present, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (4.5) AMAZED STARS . 'You do not know how fast you have been running, how hard you have been working, how truly exhausted you are, until someone stands behind you and says, “It’s OK, you can fall down now. I’ll catch you.”' . Oh, Evelyn! 🙊 Wow. I don't even know what to say. It was like reading about my favourite celebrity on a magazine. She was definitely a dynamite. Ahhh, I want a Harry Cameron for myself. A must read! Compelling. Touching. Powerful. Unputdownable. 👏 I am patiently waiting for a new book of #TaylorJenkinsReid #TheSevenHusbandsofEvelynHugo #EvelynHugo #Hollywood #GoodReads #Books #Bookworm #Read #Bibliophile . 📸 urk_art

I spent my morning finishing The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and I’m feeling a little sad that it’s over. Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 6/5 (Thats okay, right?) Time to read: 6 days Review: Oh.my.lanta. I LOOOOOVED this book. The storyline was genius, I felt like I actually knew all of the main characters and truly felt for them during their good times and bad, Evelyn was so beautifully complicated and I wish her movies were real so I could watch them over and over. This book really made me feel so many emotions along with the characters and I cried multiple times throughout. If you haven’t read this yet, please!! I beg of you, go experience the beauty of this book, I doubt you’ll be disappointed. 💚💚💚 . . . #bookstagram #ilovethisbook #pleasemakeamovie #evelynhugo #taylorjenkinsreid #thesevenhusbandsofevelynhugo

My official second book of 2018 on my to be read list. Got this one from @bookofthemonth along with several others on my list. Long night at work so I’m sure I’ll be done with this one tonight since it’s a pretty good read so far! #bookofthemonth #bookstagram #evelynhugo
I'm sick! Blah. I am now sipping Trader Joe's peppermint green tea and about to jump back into my current read The Wife Between Us. So my weekend plans are to sit and be pitiful. _____________________ This book was one of my biggest surprises last year. I went into it knowing very little and I thought it would be like the novel version of reading a trashy celebrity gossip magazine. But what I got was an extremely well-developed, yet flawed main character who I still found extremely likeable despite some of her actions and a compelling storyline about the inner workings of golden age Hollywood full of scandals, sexism, heartbreak, and the pursuit of success at all costs. _____________________ Day Five: Five star read #grimdragon #thesevenhusbandsofevelynhugo #evelynhugo #taylorjenkinsreid #fivestars #books #book
