LOVED this ♥️♥️♥️ Didn‘t think the author could top Daisy Jones, but then I read Malibu Rising and then this one. I think I have a new favorite author for sheer entertainment!

I was moved by this book. It took me about one and a half husbands to get in to the story. It started out feeling like a cheap chick-flit. But Evelyn's actions made at least a good story. Her true love was touching, of course, and the ending heart breaking. The plot twist at the end made me question the reliability of her as a narrator of her own story, which is something I always enjoy.
This book will stay in my memory for a bit.

I stayed up late tonight to finish this one. First 5 star read for 2022. Taylor Jenkins Reid sure can create some colorful characters. You almost feel like these people are real. The sign of a true storyteller.

It took me sometime to get into this book. It was not that bad. I enjoyed hearing about how Evelyn Hugo managed to have 7 husbands. It was a quick read was you finally got into her talking about her past in Hollywood and her true love. The ending I was not expecting it was sad but not depressing if that makes sense.

The story focuses on Evelyn's development and finding who she truly is, and stumbling through different relationships. It was truly emotional seeing how the LGBTQ+ aspects have changed, and how they come into play through the relationship between Evelyn and Ceila. The book is spilt into parts, the plot appears simple yet the troubles and lifestyle Evelyn lives brings much more depth. The ending was so emotional I was sobbing but happy.

This fictional biography feels so real! I'm sure some readers could easily be convinced that the story was a true one. It is really just wonderfully done. I love the flawed characters surrounded by the stripped away magic of old Hollywood. There is glamour & grit. It is just simply marvelous. The characters are vivid, the plot is engaging, & I swam through this book perpetually thirsty for more.

I don‘t know why I waited so long to read this, I Love TJR but I kept putting it off. It is not what I expected, it‘s so much more. I knew Evelyn wanting Monique to write her memoir was tied to Monique‘s dad, but I didn‘t see it coming until the accident. This isn‘t a story about her husbands, it‘s about Evelyn‘s resiliency and the choices she made. Book #78 in 2021

Allthebookclubs I know this says book 78 and I don‘t have 77 listed, I‘m waiting on Litsy to add Lovelight Farms by B.K. Borison! 3w

Wow. This is the book you will continue to think about long after you finish the book. Evelyn Hugo lived her life fully and on her terms. Monica is her biographer and gets to know Evelyn well and hear about the whys and why not‘s of all her marriages.

Nute Welcome to Litsy! It‘s a warm and friendly community. I know that you will enjoy yourself here. I‘m looking forward to getting to know you!🙂
Check out #LitsyEvents for a varied listing of fun-related happenings within this neighborhood of fellow readers.🤗

ALL THE STARS!!!!!! I can't put into words how much I enjoyed this book. I thought about it when I wasn't reading it, and hated putting it down when I was. I even cried a couple times towards the end!
My favorite husband was definitely Harry! He was such a treasure and I'm thankful Evelyn always had him by her side.
It still saddens me to see how far we still have to go for the LGBTQ community, but reading this realized just how far we have come.

I cannot explain in any amount of words the feelings I have towards this book that would make someone understand just how deeply I loved it. I felt connected to the characters and fully appreciated their stories. The complexity of Evelyn Hugo‘s story and Monique‘s role in it all was breathtaking. I have never cried reading a book or felt passionately enough to do so, but I balled my eyes out through the end. Do yourself a favor, read it now.

I'm putting this down for now. I'm about halfway through & I just realised I don't really care about any of the characters.
I like TJR's writing style, it's straight forward & concise & she doesn't waste words. The thing that's ruining it for me is how cold & calculating most of the characters are. Most of them are just downright nasty- pasties who'll do anything to go forward with their career & this sort of story doesn't appeal to me.

I loved this book. Not what I was expecting at all and I had put off reading this for a while but so glad I got around to it. I didn't think I would feel anything for a woman that had married 7 times but had to chastise myself for my narrow minded stereotypes. At the end I was like 'yup, I get it and what a way to live your life'.
As she says, 'never let anyone (particularly a man) make you feel ordinary'
Read it in a day! Loved it 👌

Reid is just SO good at writing characters in a way that makes then REAL - their umanity, and the accuracy of the time and situations which they have lived through. I felt like I was reading the autobiography of someone legendary, like Marilyn Monroe. I'm left rather sad that Hugo is a fictional character.

Hey people! Haven't been able to really even look at Litsy lately thanks to my mattress dying & the subsequent mattress testing trips plus getting a new bed cos I'm downsizing from a queen to a double lol! I had such a hard time fixin on what to read during those three weeks given how tired & stressed I was too. Anyway, I'm at Mum & Dad's place for an early Chrissy & reading The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. It's very different to what I thought!

An impressive and smart novel, it made me feel like it was a memoir of a real person. Very easy to read, I couldn't wait to finish the book but at the same time, I didn't want it to finish. I was so emotionally invested in the characters that I felt I cared for them and I even cried hard at one point.
It covers important topics such as sexuality and sexism; also female inner power and the power of love. I can't recommend it enough!

fredthemoose If you haven‘t already, check out Malibu Rising and Daisy Jones & The Six by the same author—I thought they were all great! 2mo

Mark this one on the calendar: I completed both my #doublespin and now my #bookspin picks for the month!! First time all year 😆

This wasn't bad. Memoir style life story of a famous author with, you guessed it, seven husbands. It was good but it felt like a lot of the same story being told over and over during different times. I see why people love it but I don't get the hype. Not my type of book I guess 🤷‍♀️

When you realise you can tell someone your truth, when you can show yourself to them, when you stand in front of them bare and their response is "You're safe with me" - that's intimacy.

There are people who see a beautiful flower and rush over to pick it. They want to hold it in their hands, they want to own it. They want the flower's beauty be theirs, to be within their possession, their control. Don wasn't like that. At least, not at first. Don was happy to be near the flower, to look at the flower, to appreciate the flower simply being.

4/5⭐️. This book is about the complexities of truth & identity, esp for people who must navigate a world that is not made for them or by them. Rather than be a surface-level “extra” plot line, I ❤️ that 🏳️‍🌈 rep is a main feature. I wish the effort to explore the intersections of race, gender, and sexuality was more prevalent, however. Overall, this is a winner of a choice for a weekend binge, a holiday break escape, or a snow day treat.

CuriousG I have this on audio but haven't managed to start it yet - perhaps I should move it up my TBR 🤔 2mo
BookBosomed1 @CuriousG Oooh. I‘m intrigued by the idea of an audio version. Move it up so you can tell me about it. 😉 2mo

TJR is amazing at writing flawed characters that you still love. This one was just as good as Daisy Jones. I enjoyed learning about Evelyn's life and her relationships, and the truth of a person hidden behind the tabloid stories.

The way Evelyn is having so much fun with this, the way she seems to delight in shocking me, lets me know that this is, at least a little bit, a power play. She likes to be cavalier about things that would change other people‘s lives. Isn‘t that the very definition of power? Watching people kill themselves over something that means nothing to you?

quote
Squidonland

“I hate you, you know.”
Evelyn nods. “Good for you. It‘s such an uncomplicated feeling, isn‘t it? Hatred?”
