Why We Selected The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

As usual, we put this to a vote in our Virtual Book Club Facebook Group. I recently finished listening to the audiobook, Daisy Jones and the Six, by the same author and have had this book on my TBR (to-be-read) list ever since.

This author creates such well-developed and believable characters that after reading her work, people often search to see if the stories actually happened. They’re not real.

Author Taylor Jenkins Reid partly based this book upon Ava Gardner’s memoir. Check out Ava Gardner: The Secret Conversations here. I also found this Vanity Fair article fascinating and reminiscent of the relationship between Evelyn and Monique.

Participate in the Book Club, Plus a Chance to Win Prizes

Once you join our Facebook Group, read the rules on how to participate in the Virtual Book Club. We will award points for participation. With these points, you will be entered into a lottery where you can win (1) the next book club pick or an Amazon gift card for equivalent value or (2) a mystery prize inspired by something in the book, up to a $100 value.

After our last book club discussion of The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell, one lucky winner won a gift inspired by the book:

  • Red Devil Hot Sauce: the main character, Sam, is bullied for his red “devil boy” eyes
  • MantraBand: his mother believes everything is God’s will and never gives up her faith
  • Sunglasses: Sam grows up to become an ophthalmologist

The second winner won a copy of this book, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.
