“Don’t ignore half of me so you can fit me into a box. Don’t do that.”
🌟 Do not judge a book by its cover.
Never have this saying been truer, I had used this saying before when I read books with good covers but were disappointing. This was the total opposite! I never thought that I would like this book, I even hate the cover and did not want to read this in the first place!
🌟 My friend Lizzy (A million thanks to you) recommended this to me when I once asked for books with great plots. I haven’t heard of the book at that time but then it started appearing on my news-feed at GR with tons of positive reviews.
🌟 I have seen people who hate HP, Six of Crows, A darker shade of magic and any book you can think of. But I swear I haven’t seen a single negative review for this until I went to the book page and meticulously searched for one.
🌟 This book lives up to the hype! It was so effing realistic that I thought Evelyn Hugo was a real character, I recommended this to a friend who started it immediately and told me the same thing, he thought she was real and he googled her.
🌟 Evelyn will be one of the memorable characters that I read, she is morally gray and she is not perfect. She confess that she did some wrong things but she doesn’t regret them. The seven husbands were also unique and they represent all different kind of men, there was the greedy, the kind, the good and the bad! I can’t go into details as it will sure contain spoilers!
🌟 And the writing is so good, this was my first book by Taylor Jenkins Reid but it definitely will not be the last! I can’t wait to read her other books. I highlighted half of the sentences (not really but you do get it).
🌟 This book has something for every kind of reader. It has an amazing writing style and characters. It was character driven and I didn’t care if it had a plot twist or not (and it did) because I was so invested in the story.
🌟 Summary & Prescription: I recommend this for everyone and I ended up giving it 4.5 stars out of 5 stars (which is its current average rating at GR!).
