Recently, three amazing booktubers came together to create The Late Night Book Club. I immediately knew I wanted to join and since their first book club pick is for the month of September, I am glad to take part in it from the beginning.
The Late Night Book Club is hosted by Joel, Noelle and Ellias. To find out more about the readathon, make sure to check out the Twitter page here and each booktubers’ announcement video below.
This month’s book club pick is one I have been wanting to read for years and I am definitely going to try my best to finally get to it. I have heard nothing but amazing things about it over the years and I absolutely loved two of the books I already read by the author, so I am really excited to see what it is about.
🌙 The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life.
When she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one in the journalism community is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now? Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband, David, has left her, and her career has stagnated. Regardless of why Evelyn has chosen her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.
Summoned to Evelyn’s Upper East Side apartment, Monique listens as Evelyn unfurls her story: from making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the late 80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way. As Evelyn’s life unfolds—revealing a ruthless ambition, an unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love—Monique begins to feel a very a real connection to the actress. But as Evelyn’s story catches up with the present, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.
Keep reading and never stop telling stories.
