"Addie dreams of telling Luc these things, just to see the shade it turns his eyes, the green of being bested. The green of forfeit, and of losing. But if he’s taught her anything, it’s patience. So Addie says nothing of the new game, the new rules, the new battle that’s begun. She only smiles, and sets the book back on its shelf." - VE Schwab, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue
the seven husbands of evelyn hugo taylor jenkins reid
When aging Hollywood star Evelyn Hugo wants to do her first interview in years, it’s the opportunity of a lifetime for any journalist. But Evelyn will only interview with one… Monique is a writer climbing ranks at a high-end fashion magazine. The editors are flummoxed when the mysterious Evelyn Hugo insists that Monique conduct the interview. With seven husbands and a decades-long career in Hollywood, the right interviewer could get career-making story out of Evelyn…and Monique’s superiors are not confident she’s equal to the task. Frankly, Monique is worried too. Evelyn’s charisma and gravitas are intimidating enough, but Monique is clueless as to why the star would request her. What we learn about Evelyn—and Monique—is uplifting and disheartening, heart-wrenching and conflicting. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo connects us to a not so distant past to demonstrate the value of every opportunity and the value of the authentic you.
