You do not know how fast you have been running, how hard you have been working, and how truly exhausted you are, until someone stands behind you and says, “It’s OK, you can fall down now. I’ll catch you.”

                    -Taylor Jenkins Reid, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

My first impression  

The first thought that came into my mind is that this book is all about the woman and her dark reality of their relationship, abuse, and much more. I thought I am going to be have a ride on the domestic violence of a renowned Hollywood actress but it was much more.

My Musings

This book is all over on Bookstagram and book tube. Everyone was reading it and reviewing it and I must say I read lots of good reviews about this book and this urged me to buy this book and read the story of Evelyn. Read on to know more about this book and my experience of reading it.

What to expect?

Expect a journey of a girl who turned into a woman in Hollywood, who took her career from land to sky in no time. You can expect Evelyn to be trading her virginity to get into Hollywood, marrying at the age of 14 years, not only once but seven times, some with consent, some with just let it go! I don’t care. A bisexual woman lived her life on her own terms, supporting the LGBTQ community, and fighting the odds but never giving up. I am telling you to fasten your belt because Evelyn is going to knock your socks off.


How the story goes?

A reclusive Hollywood actress of the 1960s wants to get interviewed by Monique Grant, not so famous reporter at VIVANT.  Everyone was shocked even Monique.

Why did Evelyn Hugo choose only Monique for her autobiography?

Did she have something up in her sleeve for Monique?

Evelyn Hugo is going to tell everything to Monique for her autobiography. How did she become from Evelyn Herrera to Evelyn Hugo? A Cuban girl turned her hair to blond, adopt an American accent, and here she goes to keep every man’s mouth open with her slaying features.

Evelyn ran away from his father when her mother died when Evelyn was just eleven years old. She ran straight away to the roads of  Hollywood and wanted to clinch every movie, which could get her an Oscar. Evelyn is going to tell in the story how she met her seven husbands, why she got married to seven husbands and left everything in the end.

Evelyn ran into some great friends in her life, whom she trusts and can share everything with them, CELIA and HARRY CAMERON, one of her husbands also. These friends became a part and parcel of Evelyn Hugo’s life.

Still, she was alone in her house. Why?

Read the book and find out the real Evelyn.

How good were the characters?

Awesome! I  just wanted to go and hug Evelyn for her losses suffered and wanted to say that everything will be OKAY. How relentless a fighter you are?  

The writing

The writing is simply marvelous. With the character of Evelyn, you can enjoy the parties of Hollywood, even, the reality of Hollywood. Enjoy the ride of light, camera, and action, going to the academy awards and an Oscar. Who wouldn’t be happier to be at late-night parties and hanging around with famous superstars? But you are going to see something, which you think at that moment. No this should not be done. Evelyn is a character with flaws but she always lives like a queen.
