Book Review: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Book Rating 4/5 Book Review I saw The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo literally everywhere, but avoided it incessantly. It seemed like a book I wouldn’t particularly like. Typically, books about movie stars don’t make my short list. However, I stumbled upon it in my Scribd library, and thought, well…might as well give it a…

Book Review: Three Little Lies by Laura Marshall

I am safe. I probably always was safe. Unless… unless I have never been safe.

Ellen’s best friend from her teenage years…
