I didn't really care for Evelyn. I understood why she had to do some of the things she did but she just wasn't a very likable person, not always anyway. This was just a sad book. But it is well written and very much worth reading.

Loved this book! It is Hollywood glamour from the outset and such an enjoyable read. I laughed, cried and felt so much for the characters in this book. Its beautiful story telling and it has confirmed I‘m a big Taylor Jenkins Reid fan. Highly recommend! 5 🌟

A novel about love, ambition, Hollywood, and the price of fame. A clever story about complex relationships, the stories we tell ourselves, and the ones we share with the world.

For this to be a fiction book, it read like a bio for a star. I really enjoyed it.

My first book finished this month. Way way way off my average. I liked this one okay; I never quite got to that place where you forget you are reading and not noticing how the author is very skilled but I am not quite convinced. I did appreciate the ending, the construction overall. Four out of five (and no pie mentions, boo) 76th book of the year.

5.5. Dynamic, captivating. Not your typical romance novel

This story turned out to be so much better than I anticipated. The intricate storyline, all the different characters and how they shape Evelyn throughout her life—it all came together beautifully. Thanks to booktok for recommending this one! :)

Purchased our next month‘s book club selection because the library holds were too long. The Sarah Addison Allen purchase because I enjoy her light magical realism.

Not-so-fun Fact: I have yet to finish a book this month. #BookSpinBingoBust

Disappointed in the dialogue again. A lot of this reads like it‘s a fan fic ripped from ao3, like, really really bad. I enjoyed a lot of it but god, I rolled my eyes a lot. My relationship with TJR‘s work complicates further.

This book is fabulous. It's about Evelyn Hugo, but it's also a beautiful representation that appearances do not necessarily depict the whole story - that people are complex and messy and a mixture of "good" and "bad". The "twist" is heavily foreshadowed (but I am an English teacher), so if you like to be surprised, it may not impress you, but it is, overall, a beautifully done novel.

BkClubCare Our bookclub just selected this - I am excited. 3w
ChantalReads I loved it, and I hope you do too! It will soon be a Netflix movie (or miniseries if the protesting fans have their way). 2w

Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo-
It was an amazing book. I personally loved the writing style, so plain, so beautiful. Nothing too complex. The book was simple, yet so complicated. There were so many characters, yet I didn‘t find myself confused at any point in the novel. That‘s the beauty of a good writer. She knows what she‘s writing. And it‘s good.
You should definitely give it a read! #sevenhusbandsofevelynhugo

I have just finished this book and I am speechless. I have not read a book in years where a twist made me close the book and just sit in silence, processing. I honestly could‘ve finished this book in one sitting. It‘s complex, it‘s heartwarming, yet also heartbreaking. I honestly wish I could experience reading it for the first time again.

I couldnt put it down!!! This was recommended to me by my partner‘s brother who insisted “its not like a rom-com, it‘s like,, an exploration of a person through the different loves she had.” He was absolutely right. It‘s well-balanced, heartfelt, and charming, and I‘ve already recommended it to three more people lol.

Evelyn Hugo has finally decided to sit down with a reporter and tell her whole life story. The good, the bad, the worst. To the gossip rags, she is a woman unable to settle with just one man, but there is always more to every story than the words printed by those looking to sell papers. I couldn‘t decide whether I admired her or disliked her which added to the fascination. Evelyn knew what she wanted and found a way to get it.

Why did I wait so long to read this book??? I actually read it on audiobook and found it to be so endearing and empowering, heartbreaking at times, but incredibly powerful. I understand now why this book continues to spark discussion and remains so popular! Totally worth the #bookstagram and #booktok hype!!!

This was a brilliant book. I loved the way that all the characters were portrayed and something that I loved the most was the character development. Often when we read books, we feel get to know characters, and what better joy is there to see your favourite characters develop their personalities and delve further into their stories? Great representation of the LGBTQ+ community, expertly handling labels. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Why, until this moment, did I not realise that the issue is my own confidence? That the root of most of my problems is that I need to be secure enough in who I am to tell anyone who doesn‘t like it to go fuck themselves? Why have I spent so long settling for less when I damn well the world expects more?

This is another book club choice and I did overall enjoy it. I felt that it was a few chapters too long and I got a little bored. The characters were good and I liked the writing style. Overall I scored it 4/5

quote

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, “Its OK, you can fall down now. I‘ll catch you.”
So I fell down.

Isn‘t it awfully convenient,” Harry added, “that when men make the rules, the one thing that‘s looked down on is the most is the one thing would bear them the greatest threat? Imagine if every single woman on the planet wanted something in exchange when she gave up her body. You‘d all be ruling place. An armed populace.”

Wow this book was good. I can‘t imagine having to hide myself because of the person I‘m in love with. Evelyn hugo sacrifices everything for love in this book and faces so much heartbreak. I‘m surprised I didn‘t X-ray at the end.

People think that intimacy is about sex.
But intimacy is about truth.
When you realise you can tell someone your truth, when you stand in front of them bare and their response is “You‘re safe with me”- that‘s intimacy.

August 9, 2022 Evelyn Hugo was a very messy woman, who had seven husbands, but she did not care about how many husbands she had. The one woman she loved through all the telationships she had was none other than Celia St. James. In the beginning when I was reading, I assumed that she was straight. Then, as I read deeper and further into the book, I could tell that she was bisexual. 5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The story in this book is really bold and daring.I really didn't expect it at all. But I loved it!
I loved that it resembles such a deep topic for that period.
It definitely has your attention from the first pages, till the last.
Powerful book about race,sexuality and having to accept some norms from the society, so they can be pleased and you can be accepted.It's one of the books that has gotten a lot of hype,but it's totally worth it.

KristiAhlers This is one of my favorite authors. And I loved this story. So much heart! 2mo

August 8, 2022 Tbh, I have been enjoying the way Taylor Jenkins Reid writes. I feel like this book is a book that one when read whenever (basically timeless). I am on page 299 out of 385, which is approximately 85 pages left. Even though the book describes the seven husbands that Evelyn married, she still says that she has love for Celia St. James.

Really enjoyed this one and I‘m not a big fan of the author. Although I do have to say she does NOT make likable characters. Her books are more like watching a terrible fight between two terrible people, you just cannot look away. Also checking in with my buddy @BookwormAHN how you doin‘? The last few months and days have been terrible for me but I still get up each day, so I‘ve got that going for me, which is nice.

BookwormAHN August so far has sucked for me. On the first I found out I had Covid so I did the medication and quarantined myself. My sense of smell is still gone and I woke up with a migraine. I'm ready for September and I'd like to skip the rest of August 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2mo
