I was a tiny bit hesitant to read this book. Because I LOVED Reid’s book Daisy Jones and the Six but wasn’t so impressed with her last book Malibu Rising. But so many people were loving on her new book so I decided to tackle it. And I am really glad I did. Here is my book review The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
Evelyn Hugo, former Hollywood starlet turned recluse, has agreed to an interview. Vivant Magazine is the lucky publlication that will feature the first interview Hugo has done in years. But Evelyn Hugo, as always, has strings attached. She will only be interviewed by an unknown writer named Monique Grant. It’s Monique or nobody. But why?
Monique spends weeks with Evelyn in Evelyn’s swanky apartment hearing Evelyn’s truth about her relentless pursuit of stardom, her loves and losses, scandals and triumphs. But as the long interview begins to wind down, Monique realizes that her own sorrowful past is connected to Evelyn in a way she could never have imagined. Will the truth set them both free? Evelyn from her burdens and Monique from her sorrow?
Reid pulls this story together in a tidy package and I enjoyed this read way more than I thought I would. Daisy Jones is still my fav, but Evelyn Hugo gives her a run for her money. Of course she does…that is just the kind of women she is. Thank you for reading my book review The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
