I told y'all #beemariereads was in full swing! i finished my next book, and i am obsessed with "the seven husbands of evelyn hugo" by @tjenkinsreid
.
.
finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and often scandalous life, hollywood legend evelyn hugo chooses unknown writer monique grant to writer her biography. confused as to why she was chosen, monique gets to hear of evelyn's rise to the top and the risks she took to get there, the loves she lost, and long held secrets evelyn hasn't shared with her fans. .
.
i absolutely devoured this book; it took every part of me to not finish it in one sitting! it had me laughing, crying and gasping. the twist at the end literally gave me goosebumps, and i don't say that lightly. i love old hollywood so i was immediately drawn to the plot of the book, but i was completely blown away by its execution. the structure it self is easy to read and makes you feel like you are getting so much information without being overwhelmed by it. it alternates between the present (evelyn telling monique her story) and the past (a section is devoted to each husband and each stage of evelyn's life and career). i felt like this could easily be a beach read you could finish in one day, or something you could stretch out across a few weeks and you would still get the same experience. i really loved the plot of this book. i was extremely excited that monique was a halfrican (half black, half white) like myself. very rarely do you find mixed characters in books, and if you do their entire story arc is race related, so i was really surprised to find out that she was mixed and guess what, was just another character in this world who wasn't there to fill some diversity quota. like i said, i love old hollywood. so i found the evelyn's journey through the studio system to be thoroughly entertaining and it provided the backdrop to discuss so many different issues like gender equality and lgbtq identity. i honestly feel like i can't say too much because it will be spoiler city! i can't recommend this book enough, read it...and let me know what you think!! #thesevenhusbandsofevelynhugo #taylorjenkinsreid #evelynhugo #oldhollywood

#beemariereads is back in full swing! my first book up is “eleanor oliphant is completely fine” by gail honeyman.
.
.
eleanor oliphant is a finance clerk from glasgow who is socially awkward and tends to say exactly what is on her mind. her “perfectly” scheduled life is interrupted when she meets raymond, the it guy from her office, with whom she helps save an elderly man named sammy after he has fallen on the sidewalk. through their friendship, eleanor is confronted by her dramatic past and forced to see how her relationship with her mother has effected her present day life. perhaps she really doesn’t have it as together as she thought.
.
.
this book was recommended to me by my friend eli @eliasmbenavidez he had recently read it while on vacation and he thought i would enjoy it. he was right! i’ll admit the book started out a bit slow for me but once it grabbed me, i was hooked and could barely put it down. at first i found eleanor’s routines and social awkwardness to be a bit cringe worthy and often times snooty. she didn’t want to interact with others because she felt she was more refined and on many levels better than them. but as the book continues and her friendship with raymond grows, you begin to see that because of some very intense things in her past she has learned to only depend on and put trust in herself. she continually tells people she is fine, when in reality she is shutting them out because she has so many things she needs help with. i found myself thinking about times when i have told people that i am fine when really i was hurting, was upset or needed help. in eleanor confronting things in her life, it made me think of my own. i really appreciate when books do that. they provide entertainment but also give you a moment to reflect on yourself. .

have you read it? what did you think? let me know!!! #eleanoroliphant #eleanoroliphantiscompletelyfine #gailhoneyman #bookworm #read #reading #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #currentread #igbooks #booknerdigans #booknerd #bookclub #bibliophile
