Hello nerdy and non-nerdy friends! My name is Sofia and I'm about to introduce you to one of the best books ever written. Like, for real.

The name is "The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo" and the author is Taylor Jenkins Reid. Now, hold your horses, people. I know this book is really famous and is all over BookTok. We all know some of the recommendations you find on there end up being terrible books, BUT I assure you this one is different. I finished it in less than three days and it's not such a short book, so I'll need you to trust me on this one.

You probably all know the twist of this book (I won't spoil it to those who don't, don't worry), cause it's all over the Internet, but I ASSURE YOU it's not the only one. It's probably the least crazy plot twist you'll find in this book.

But, for those who've never heard of this book, let's start from the beginning.

Evelyn Hugo is a Hollywood icon who starred in many successful movies and lived a glamorous life. She got married seven times. Now, at 79 years old, after retiring from Hollywood, she's finally ready to tell the truth about her life. The thing is, the person she chooses to write her story is Monique Grant; an unknown magazine reporter.

This book really takes you to old Hollywood, you feel all the vibes, and the way Evelyn tells her story, how she explains everything she's done... it's really incredible. She's so ambitious; a real Slytherin.
