The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid | Book Review


Rating: 5 out of 5.

So emotional, so beautiful.

Genre: Fiction
Author: Taylor Jenkins Reid
Published: June 2017
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Pages: 385 (paperback)

I went into this quite nervous that it wouldn’t live up to the hype. But I really found this so lovely and I’m so glad I read it.

This was an easy read and such an intriguing one. Following Evelyn’s story has you wanting to flip through the pages so fast to find out the truth about her.

I somehow didn’t know much about this going into it, so was really impressed by the queer representation and commentary on issues of the time. I thought it was very powerfully done to represent the hardships and heartbreak of your identity being illegal.

The way Hollywood is represented in this book as well was so interesting. The blunt reality of what it takes to make it was both shocking and somehow alluring. You could feel the need for fame seeping through the pages as Evelyn’s tells her story and her need to prove. Nothing is more interesting or satisfying than a story about building yourself up from nothing.

The twists and turns of this story were fun and unexpected, and I thought it came to a very satisfying ending. I certainly think this is worth reading and it has me really excited about reading more of Reid’s books in the future.
