30 Days of Pride – Day 12

Okay, it’s a crime that I haven’t talked about this already. However, nobody will be shocked that I’m talking about it since I haven’t shut up about it since I read it. I’m talking about the epic love story that put me in a year-long slump.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

My review!

This book had a huge impact on me. I hesitate to say it changed my life, but I’m a fan of hyperbole so fuck it! It changed my life. I absolutely love this book and it continued to surprise me. From the hetero-baiting title to the love story between two women over decades, add in a Hollywood setting and an aging star telling the truth of her life and you have a goddamn masterpiece. Why hasn’t anyone brought this book to the screen yet?!

I guarantee if the love that was put into this book was put into a mini-series, then I would be the happiest person in the world. This book is absolutely perfect and I’m terrified to read it again because I don’t want to be let down and because the pain was so strong. It hurt more than any other book I’ve read before. Not only did I cry but I felt the anger and pain.

I honestly don’t know if a book will ever come close to how I felt about Evelyn Hugo and I’m okay with that. I think I’m a better person for having read this book.

Have I oversold it?

    • I’m so happy we are in agreement there. Everyone should read this book. Evelyn Hugo and Song of Achilles are the only two books I will shove in people’s faces.
