Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?

Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn’s luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ‘80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn’s story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.

Automatically one of my favorite books of all time. It really immerses you in the life of Evelyn Hugo and makes you be immersed in all the ups and down of her life. Definitely going in my library one day!

Hollywood icon Evelyn Hugo is said to be richer than God. She is the epitome of women power and sexuality and has specifically called in Monique (a potential writer in her 30s). Evelyn wants Monique to write her biography and to publish it after she does. Evelyn Hugo with no loved one left on the planet to protect after her daughter died is now ready to spill her life story. Through the story she will reveal how she meticulously took bold and smart move to climb up the ladder from rock-bottom to the top of Film industry. She will reveal who was the love of her life and also the reason why Monique was chosen by her. Monique is warned that by the end of declaring Evelyn's true story, Monique will come to detest Evelyn.
This novel is an absolute page turner with plot twist which are plausible at the end of every chapter. Definitely recommend it!

Definitely one of the best books I've ever read! The writing style is amazing and very unique. It keeps you engaged and makes you feel as if you are witnessing everything live, even though the events took place decades ago. 10/10 would definitely recommend it.

There was a time in my life that this was the only book I kept suggesting for my friends to read. The beginning might be a bit boring but once you start, you'd be completely hooked!

I haven't read a book in years, I am glad this was the first one I picked up. Once you start reading it you can't stop until you finish it. I finished it so fast. So good.

What can I say about The Seven Husband Of Evelyn Hugo, that no one has never said before? If you're asking yourself, "Why does this book have so much hype?", let me tell you, this book deserves all the hype that it had. The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo is a messy, powerful, thoughtful as well as lingering read. There is no reason why anyone shouldn't pick up this book.
Monique Grant doesn't know that her life is going to change forever when she walked into Vivant that day. When the Hollywood Legend, Evelyn Hugo asks for specifically Monique to interview her, just like others, Monique also wonders why. But soon she will uncover the reason behind it.

Sorry guys, but that's all you need to know about the plot of the book. Yeah, I know it's short, but trust me when I say that this is enough.
Every now and then, a book comes, you pick it up. and it hits you SO HARD. That's what this book did for me. When reading Evelyn Hugo, you will not be swept into a beautiful dream land. Instead, you'll bear the scorching heat of reality, the money and muscle power that dominates every industry, no matter how small, the racism that divides you even when we all are people who have the same blood coursing through our veins.
Evelyn's journey and rise to stardom was not facile. The horrors she faced, is something that I hope many of the earlier actors faced, but never blurted out. Young Evelyn Herrera had to defy her Cuban roots, die her hair blond, and even change her name to Evelyn Hugo, to just get into the glamorous world of cinema. When people reduced her to just a 'beautiful and erotic girl', she knew that she had to change it. Show them what she's really made of.
The character of Evelyn was never a damsel in distress, she was a ferocious lioness, hungry for power and determined to go to any length to get what she wants. Kindness was a word that she never heard of. She knew that if you wanted to survive, you have to be quite a badass.
All the elements, all the characters and the relevant topics discussed, combined with a REALISTIC writing style, The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo is quite a page turner. I think it is similar to A Stranger in the Mirror by Sidney Sheldon, but way more forthright.

"...they are just husbands. I am Evelyn Hugo. And anyway, I think once people know the truth, they will be much more interested in my wife"


Evelyn's tale is a celebration of feminism, and represents, a huge amount of diversity, that it is a must read. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Delightful! It was very hard to put down - a sign of a great read. The characters were particular favorites of mine (Evelyn, her friend and her true love especially - I felt somewhat indifferent to Monique). It moved me to tears several times. The prose isn't Nabokovian, but it gets the job done. I highly recommend reading it! 4.5/5

This book hurt my feelings. Yes, I bawled. It's taught me to take my relationships seriously, but not too seriously, though. If we love people (romantic, platonic, filial, etc.), we must make them know how we feel. Life's too short to take ourselves for granted.

I think it's one of the prettiest book I have ever read. I wasn't sure about reading it but now I'm so thankful to anyone who recommend it to me.

Don't read about it in goodreads because the first review what you are going to find reveals something immediately. I don't know how people can be so insensitive.

This book is so great!!! I went head on this book without nothing anything about the story or whatever and wow I'm amazed, at every chapter i didn't even care about her husband but ABOUT HER!!!! she's so amazing and ugh what do you mean she didn't even exist, the best biography I've read and i do not care she's not real.

I LOVE THIS BOOK OMGGGG AAAAAA

evelyn is such a complex character and i love her. she’s not your typical pure, kind, innocent lead and she knows it. she’s not ‘good’, she doesn’t pretend to be one, and maybe that’s what i like her.

i love love the plot. read this bcs of the hype and i had no idea what it is about but i loved it.

it tackled so many issues, i learned a lot, it showed me a lot of views, introduced me to the world in a different perspective.

i really like how the story was written and it captured me. never a dull moment and it kept me wanting to read more, to know what’s gonna happen next. i really enjoyed, also cause evelyn was such a complex and interesting character, u never get enough of her. i enjoyed a lot and was really interested with how’s the story going.

READ IT IT'S WORTH IT CAUSE IT'S SO GOOD

This book I must say is perfectly written, from the plot to the characters to how the story was conveyed. It was indeed a satisfying read. Although there are few things I'm not quite comfortable about in this book and that's okay because that's just me. But overall it's great, a 4.5/5 for me.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It became my favorite book as soon as I finished it. I loved Evelyn and Celia’s relationship, their love for each other is infinity and beyond. It was one of the greatest power they have, it’s so deep (and well written) you start to think that you’ll never get that kind of love your whole life and it just makes you more miserable than you already are reading the book. I want the love Evelyn and Celia have for each other. Very great.

This book is absolutely amazing and honestly should be made into a movie. It has the queer and POC representation that we need in movies. Truly captivating and an emotional roller coaster!!

I did not enjoy this book, the romance was unnecessary and unenjoyable. The protagonist was cliché and basic and the plot itself had no depth. I've yet to see a viral TikTok novel that has engrossed me as much as Twilight has. The masterpiece that is Twilight is unmatched and this entire review is satire as I haven't even read the book yet.

Great. I was not prepared for the plot twist at the end. I really cared about the characters although the first chapter did not initially draw me in.

i just finished reading this book and to say that it was a roller coaster ride would be an understatement. the thing that stood out the most to me and that i loved was the truthfulness of Evelyne with her self, and her strong character and the fact that she knew she had to do what she had to do and accepted it. the complexity of her character was very interesting.
