Each month, either Anna or I will share a book we’ve recently read with you. We want to give you a little insight into what we like to read for fun! Sometimes it’s a golf related book. Sometimes it’s fiction. But either way, we’ll share what we’re reading a do a book review.
So without further adieu, say hello to our December ‘Book We Love’ The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
Not going to lie, I like myself some celebrity gossip. Every once in a while you can catch me reading a celeb magazine or following some of the most famous folks on social media. This book was made for people like me. It was one giant celebrity gossip magazine but all about one person, Evelyn Hugo.
It’s hard to not give any spoilers in a book review, especially a book like this.
Every turn in this book, I don’t think I could’ve guessed what was going to happen. With each of Evelyn’s husbands, you start to question our real-life celeb lives and wonder if there is this much work going on behind the scenes.
The book is told from the point-of-view of an hopeful journalist. Evelyn is 79 year’s old and has decided that she wants to write a tell all book and this unknown journalist is the one that’s going to write it for her. With tales of Old Hollywood glamour, secrets and lies, I just could not put this book down. I think I read it within a week!
I tend to look for books that will transport me to someone else’s life or a different time, something fictional that I can get lost in. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo did not disappoint.
Do you have any books that you recommend? We’d love to hear in the comments and maybe we’ll write our thoughts about it!
