I really enjoyed this book, from beginning to end! Never judge someone by their many marriages, you never know what's being hidden! This book will stick with me for a few days...
A warm and humid night spent reading on the deck. It's about damn time!! Sounds like rain for the next week🙄 Just getting started with this book but so far, so good! #taylorjenkinsreid #dogsoflitsy #deckreading #green
This book is sooo good!!! I‘m pretty sure I‘ll have it finished before Friday and I JUST started it this morning 😅📖 I‘ve audio booked my chores around the house, since it‘s been nothing but cold and rainy all week ☹️ but my workouts have been on point inside at least for #bookfitnesschallenge #bfc #audio
Thanks so much @Jas16! I've been wanting to read this one!
In this month‘s podcast episode we talk about celebrity book clubs and then spill the tea about the drama-filled book The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. It was such a compulsive read for me, and I had a great time discussing it with my cohosts! Listen at eclecticreaders.fireside.fm/65 or on Apple Podcasts/podcast apps under “Eclectic Readers.”
Next month‘s pick is A Thousand Mornings by Mary Oliver, so get a copy and read along with us!
I finished my current 3x3 grid. Perfect timing as the next one will be for the #BookFitnessChallenge
I can‘t choose a favorite so it‘s like this -
Evelyn, I want to go to lunch with you.
Bernadette, I kinda want to gossip about you.
Elery, Baby sometimes a secret is not yours to keep.
Kya, Those wilderness tips - you go girl!
Marianne, Connell, Seriously dudes - make up your minds already.
And Holly, PS. I love you.
The one book that comes to my mind right away is this one! My first ever #TaylorJenkinsReid book and I fell in love with it right away! It‘s not just about her 7 husbands but her journey in love and in life. Love her new book #DaisyJonesAndTheSix too, her writing is so incredible it makes you believe the characters in her books actually exist. Highly recommend this! #booknerd #greatbook #review
Loved reading about Evelyn and the twists and turns of her life. I went into it with an idea of how the book would be, and ended up being completely blown away. I‘m the best way, of course ;) Finished it hours ago and can‘t stop reeling from it.
The perks of my boyfriend being manager in a book warehouse... Yes I put in requests on a weekly basis 😂
This famous 1930 Tamara De Lempicka print moves around my homes. It has different meanings to everyone in my family and just has to stay with us. I don‘t know if TJR is aware of this auto-portrait of this artist. But if she had been, it surely was an inspiration for Evelyn.
Like all of her books before, Seven Husbands moved me like nothing before. It put me in a trance where I couldn't put it down, where there were moments when my heart sped up and tears welled in my eyes. I truly felt I was transported back to old Hollywood and the Glamour that came with it. This book touches on so many important topics that it's a must read, you will finish it completely inspired and in awe.
One of my only 5 star books so far this year. I couldn't stop reading the story of Evelyn. A woman who made her own path, who took what she wanted, and who in the end was true to herself .
Wow. What a stunning book to welcome me back to reading health. This book took my breath away, even with a headache & gritty eyes I couldn‘t put it down till I finished. @WanderingBookaneer I‘m not sure how I feel about Evelyn, even when she tried to do good, she was selfish. And totally unrepentant. But love her I did. My #MountTBR2019 #Bk14 #LitsyAtoZ2019 #LetterS #LLB19 #MrBookTBRTemptation & #Pop19 #BookWithAnItemOfClothingOnTheCover
If you've listened to either of our new episodes this week, you'll know this is the new #EclecticReaders pick! Not only did Ben Philippe recommend it, but lots of Littens have liked it, so I'm soooo excited. Can't wait for the library to tell me it's ready!
I'm a bit torn with this one! I loved it but felt like the ending fell short, after all that emotional punch. Kind of like it tapered off and lost my interest in an otherwise amazing story. I still don't regret any minute spent reading it, as Evelyn Hugo would say! 😘💎
Picture 5/~15 shots of inside Amazon‘s #NYC bookstore.
Great display theme! My book clubs have or will@be doing 5 of these.
Have you read any of these?!
I bought this story hook, line, and sinker. It really resonated as the biography of a famous actess. Evelyn Hugo is a complex heroine who will stick with me. I cannot rave about this book enough. It is a great historical representation of the LGBT community. Almost all of my Goodreads friends rated it with five stars.
YouTube modified readathon:green covers due to St Patrick's Day.Book reminds me The Great Gatsby not for writing style but how Author well describes a life style in this case, the 50s.The beginning: stars gossips, a hollow life? Last 100 pages, a lot of drama with controversial ending😢How well author explained the struggle persons went through just because the person they loved.Don't allow this ever happen again Express yourself like you are4⭐️
