BOOK CLUB - The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Welcome to the Beach Cafe Book Club! This month we read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid.

We had high hopes for this book after reading Daisy Jones & the Six last year, and it did not disapoint.

Told from two different timelines and two different points of view. The story revolves around Evelyn Hugo, a reclusive Hollywood film icon who is ready to tell all on her glamorous and scandalous life. She picks unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant, who is going through a divorce whilst trying to make a name for herself as a Journalist to write her memiors.

I loved Evelyn Hugo and her tales of glamorous parties and life on Hollywood movie sets. Reid has this incredible way of really bringing the characters to life, both Evelyn and Monique are captivating and complex making you instantly fall in love with both of them. As Evelyn recalls her life spent with each of her seven husbands, you're left trying to piece the puzzle together and figure out why she insisted on Monique.

A really great read, touching on race, sexuality, misogyn and conforming to society.

We can't recommend this book enough, we finished it in a few days and are now wanting to read everything that Reid has written!
