July Title: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

This month, we're introducing you to a new book from Taylor Jenkins Reid.

Take a stroll down the red carpet and into a world of glitz, Old Hollywood glamour, and scandal. At 79, reclusive silver screen icon Evelyn Hugo has finally decided to tell her much-sought-after life story and the tale is even more fascinating than imagined. Bold, beautiful, and unapologetically ambitious, she is a force to be reckoned with, but her climb to fame was not a straight or easy one. Born Evelyn Herrera to a poor immigrant family in New York City, her name and blonde hair were not her only illusions. And of course, there's her infamous love life.

With a good helping of Elizabeth Taylor and a dash of Marilyn Monroe, Evelyn is an unforgettable character who feels so familiar and real you'll be surprised not to see her name splashed across magazine covers. And this book digs deeper. It lays bare a flawed but undeniably charismatic woman who could fill seven lifetimes with her secrets, mistakes, dreams, and loves.
