Loved this book for #AuthorAMonth. I‘ve read other books by Taylor Jenkins Reid so she‘s not a new to me author. I am enjoying reading more books by her.

This was not the book for me. While well written and I didn‘t want to bail, I‘m neither that interested in the world of movie stars nor romance, and it was not the romance for me. I felt like this smacked of poor little rich girl syndrome, or first world problems. I don‘t want to ding it because it just wasn‘t my genre. I didn‘t hate it or even dislike it. I just didn‘t like it very much. #authoramonth @Soubhiville

CoverToCoverGirl This one gets lots of love. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I bailed, you did better than me. 2d
Texreader @CoverToCoverGirl Thanks for sharing your opinion. I knew mine was unpopular and I tried to like it more. I finished it yesterday to let it settle in my mind before writing my review. And I just couldn‘t find more love for it. 2d
Bklover I ended up l really enjoying this one. I think maybe it was my expectations. I truly hate the cover of this book so much that I was sure I‘d hate the book, so I was pleasantly surprised. Having said that, I don‘t generally enjoy books about movie stars or famous people either (I won‘t be reading Daisy Jones and the Six!). Oh, and it‘s only February 2nd, so you got one finished already for #authoramonth! 😉😊❤️ 2d
Read-y_Picker Listening to the audiobook of this one. I don't think I'd have the patience to read it as it's not my genre at all either, but listening is working for me. Good for you for sticking with it! 2d
Tamra This was totally outside my wheelhouse and ended up liking it. I guess we never know until we try something! “Unpopular” opinions make book company interesting! 😁 (edited) 2d

I decided to start with #AuthorAMonth this February. Enjoyed a greek salad, ginger ale and the beginnings of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo on my lunch at work today. Not very far into it yet but it is a pleasant read so far. I'm not a big fan of Hollywood so I'm curious to see to what extent I'll enjoy this book.

A blisteringly great summer read that was a real page turner. Said to be a loose weaving of the lives of Gina Pareño, Elizabeth Taylor, Ava Gardener and Rita Hayworth rolled into one it certainly leaves you with the sense that Evelyn was a real historical figure! Loved the strong #femalecharacters who through the journey told over decades, discover themselves and the real value of life. Great twist at the end, a recommended read!

A really fun read, with a great twist. I found that I really appreciated the historical context, which is surprising for me because i usually steer clear of historical fiction. Anyway, I was afraid it was overhyped, but it's definitely not!

Quick, easy read with Hollywood glamour aplenty. I don‘t understand all the hype this book has gotten, it fell rather flat for me. The twists at the end weren‘t particularly that shocking or gripping. There were some touching moments thrown in, however, I was disappointed overall.

TheAliceEvers I found the same! I think it was a little too overhyped for me and so I had too high expectations going in which just weren‘t met 1w
noseinabookagain @TheAliceEvers I find the majority of ‘bookstagram made me do it‘ books disappointing. The Midnight Library was a huge disappointment for me, despite being overhyped everywhere! I really enjoyed Eleanor Oliphant though (edited) 1w

I have very mixed feelings about this novel. I absolutely loved it right until the end. Everything that went down after the plot twist didn‘t sit right with me. Something just felt wrong; however, everything before that was amazing. The novel was so intriguing. The complexity of the characters and the reality of Hollywood was amazingly well-written and genuine. There were some things that didn‘t sit right with me, but overall, a wonderful read.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
If only books could win Oscars.. Just spent the last 60 pages trying to hold back tears, I was unsuccessful. Beautifully written. So much emotion and detail and several gasp worthy surprises. When I closed the book for the last time, I sighed. My husband asked if I was okay and I said Yes with tears running down my face. What a read.💚

Was I going to make a witty post about this book? Yes. Am I too busy sitting on the floor crying my eyes out to do that? Also, yes.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“People think that intimacy is about sex. But intimacy is about truth. When you realize 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.”

ETALTON I will miss saying, “Mommy‘s having some quiet time now. Please don‘t bother me until I‘m done with this husband.” *My husband‘s face: 😳* hahaha 3w

About halfway through and my old Hollywood heart is so happy. I love black and white movies and this is such a great take on what it was like to become an actress back then. So much emotion and glamour, both good and bad.

I now completely understand everyone‘s love for this book and author. I don‘t know why it took me so long to read it but I‘m so glad I did. The story has such a nice tone and the switch between husbands while still going back and forth from the interview to the past wasn‘t confusing or misleading, it was perfection.

Here‘s a lovely and eclectic list I thought I‘d share: https://parnassusmusing.net/2022/12/30/bestsellers-of-2022/ I‘ve finally put Seven Husbands on hold at the library! And Woman of Light and The Candy House and my first Emma Straub (I chose All Adults Here). I also have Other Birds and Shrines of Gaiety on hold. January #BookSpin here I come!

A complex picture of a celebrity, her peaks and lows in life, her true love and the toxic environment of the glamorous Hollywood.
The story is told from two POVs of Evelyn Hugo and the journalist Monique Grant. While the life of Evelyn is told, the link to Monique's life is slowly made. I had suspicions on it but nevertheless the twist was nicely revealed with drama and heartache. A thrilling read.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I love this one!! 1mo

#12booksof2022

For April I had to choose between the allure of The Glass Hotel & the romance of Evelyn Hugo. In the end, I went on my star rating, which - I'm learning - isn't always a reliable marker (comparatively speaking.)

This story of forbidden love & hunger for fame got under my skin and the way it all tied together knocked my socks off.

I was surprised by how much I loved this book given how indifferent I am to Hollywood and stardom.

Unfortunately I think this book was too hyped up for me and I had too high expectations going in. It was enjoyable and a unique story but the writing felt too simplistic verging on bland and I wasn‘t particularly captivated by any of the characters. The ending also felt a bit anticlimactic. I think for me the whole thing just lacked a bit of depth. But I do think I would have enjoyed it more had I had lower expectations going in.

This is the second TJR book I‘ve read and I loved this one. The first was Daisy Jones and The Six and I was not a fan of that one. But, I couldn‘t put this one down! I flew through it because I just had to know Evelyn‘s story. I was in tears at the end and it ripped my heart out at times. I. Loved. It!

It might be my best read of this year

nichollinlove I just finished Carrie Soto and learned that all 4 of her latest books are connected or in the same universe. So there are Easter eggs throughout them. I didn't notice it until after the fact. But Evelyn's 3rd husband seems to be the biggest connection between 7 Husbands, Daisy Jones, Mailbu Rising and Carrie Soto 3mo

Once I started, I couldn't put this down. Cliche, I know, but true. I'm a huge fan of old movies (TCM's my favorite channel), so I knew quite a bit about the way celebrity life in Hollywood was in the 50s-70s. To have to hide a love between two soulmates makes this story all the more poignant. Reid developed characters that I ended up caring deeply about, and the story took me on a page-turning path; I was sad to see it end.
