Book Review: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo: Taylor Jenkins Reid

Dear reader I just finished reading “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo” by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I picked up this book in paperback from Barnes and Noble when I went to my local store with my dad because I had heard a lot about it and I wanted to read it for myself. My personal review of the book is as follows:

I can’t really realistically or satisfactorily review this book in my normal format because it can’t fit into it so I will just say the following:

1. If you have gone through a divorce or are going through one I personally think that you’ll learn a lot about yourself and your situation from reading this book I know I did.

2. If you want a story to help you think about how many different types of love and loving someone filled with all of the depth and complexity and shades of gray that entails than I highly recommend reading this book.

3. If you’re interested in taking a lesson in having the courage to be yourself no matter the cost as well as making the hard choices necessary to let yourself leave behind a mediocre life for one(that if all goes well) will let your heart sing then I highly recommend taking some lessons from “Evelyn Hugo” as well as learning from her mistakes, I know that she’s a fictional character however my recommendation still stands.

4. If you’re wanting a story that will pull your heart apart and put it back together many times whilst at the end still leave you with feelings way too complicated to put into words(at least it did so for me personally) then I highly recommend reading this book.

Overall I personally feel like a 10/10 rating still falls short short. I think “Evelyn” needs one last Oscar for this performance. Happy reading dear reader 😊.  Please like and share this review if you enjoyed it doing so helps me to get approved by publishers and authors for future books and helps others to find my reviews 💜.
