    HUGE THANK YOU to Atria Books for sending me an ARC.I can honestly say I've never read a book like this before. This story is so incredibly unique and original and heart breaking and beautiful. Taylor Jenkins Reid has been one of my favorite authors recently, and this book is even better than I imagined it would be. This is unlike any of her other books, and unlike anything I've even read. I loved reading about the scandal and craziness of being ...

    This was so brilliantly different from everything TJR has written and she continues to grow so much with each new book. I am blown away by this story and the turns it took. What a story and what brilliant characters Reid has created and brought so fully to life.

    5 stars is not even enough of a rating for this masterpiece. Firstly, thank you Atria Books for sending me this advance copy. Thank YOU Taylor Jenkins Reid, for creating Evelyn Hugo. I am so in love with her I wish she was a real life person, but you did just a fantastic job on making her life so powerful, heartbreaking and moving! It's so different from any of Taylor Jenkins Reid's books. I am a huge fan of all her books, but this one?! May be m...

    The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo better be on the top of your summer to-read list. If it's not--trust me you will want to add it! For those of you who have read the magic that is Taylor Jenkins Reid, you won't be surprised to hear that her newest novel is nothing short of amazing. But here's a surprise: It's totally different from anything she's written before. This story has the intrigue and scandal that you'd expect from anything centered arou...

    Well I never thought I'd see the day where I didn't fall in love with a TJR book but here we are. I'm sure I'll be the black sheep on this and I'll never understand why. I hated this book and I say that very, very infrequently. I hated every single character with the exception of maybe one but even he turned out to be a huge disappointment eventually. The plot we both simplistic yet beyond difficult to believe. Contrived and cookie cutter are als...

    WOW. I honestly can't remember the last time I loved a book as much as this. For the last 50 pages I had to keep taking breaks so that I didn't cry in public, but also because I wanted to savour every last page. Captivating, heartbreaking and addictive with a twist that will leave you reeling. If you only read one book this summer, make it this one!

    Taylor Jenkins Reid is one of my favorite authors, but this story didn't immediately appeal to me. Old Hollywood is nice and all, but I wasn't really excited to dig into this story. But I won a copy on Goodreads (thank you) and a month or so after getting the ARC, on weekend where lots of snow was predicted, I figured I would give it a try. The story is mainly about Evelyn Hugo, but also about Monique, the writer Evelyn wants to publish her memoi...

    I have to admit that this book isn't my normal read. The story is fantastic and the writing is both heartbreaking and direct and clear. Monique is a junior writer for an elite women's magazine and is hand chosen by The famous Evelyn Hugo to write an article. The editors want to send someone more seasoned but Evelyn insists it's Monique or no interview. Monique is at a low point in her life, her husband has left her and she thought she would be be...

    I was fortunate to win an advance reader's edition from a Goodreads Giveaway and I eagerly anticipated diving into this book months in advance of its release date. I have been a fan of Taylor Jenkins Reid's other novels and I was not disappointed with this one either! It is a departure from her previous work and I felt like I had been transported to another time. The story follows the life of a classic Hollywood movie star, Evelyn Hugo, as she te...

    Thanks Netgalley for a digital ARC.I did not love this book. I understood why the story had to be the way it was because of the underlying drive of Evelyn Hugo. The writing is, as usual, amazing. The author is masterful at communicating emotion and circumstance. I didn't like any of the characters except, perhaps, Harry. I felt dirty after reading it. A lot of the subject matter was uncomfortable for me. The basic premise is that Evelyn Hugo, an ...

    I really appreciated the introspection of Evelyn in not just her career, but also in her intersectional identity. The author talked about it all - race, sexual orientation, etc.
