It's Wednesday!! Magic Misfit & The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Happy Wednesday you lovely bookish people!
I've found a new (to me) meme called Shelf Control and It merges beautifully with Can't Wait Wednesday! Celebrating the books already on my bookshelf alongside highlighting the books I'm looking forward to in the future!

Reverse Harem isn't something I've read much of (only one series in the past) and I'm not entirely sure it's my cup of tea but I like the sound of this book so I'll be giving it try!

The Raven Academy could save my life… if it doesn’t kill me first.

Waitressing might pay my bills, but it’s my cage fighting at night that really cranks my gears. Until some weird hidden power helped me win a fight. Now no one wants to step in the ring with me.

And my life is going from weird to worse. The same night a werewolf tried to tear out my throat, a guy shows up telling me magic exists AND goes on to prove it. And, oh yeah, my life is in danger now that my abilities have started to show.

Apparently, the answer is for me to follow this hottie professor to some Raven Academy and learn magic. School was never my jam, but at least this one comes with a hot demon who’s helping me train and a sexy fellow student who seems to be interested in more than just study hall. Throw in Professor Sexy Pants tutoring me privately to improve my magic, and it’s every girl’s dream.

Until I find out I’m part of some save-the-world prophecy, and the fate of all supernatural creatures rests on my shoulders. Great.

If my sexy consorts and I can’t pummel my magic into shape soon, we’re all doomed…

What are you waiting on this week?

Ageing and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now? Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn's luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the '80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn's story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique's own in tragic and irreversible ways.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is a mesmerizing journey through the splendour of old Hollywood into the harsh realities of the present day as two women struggle with what it means--and what it costs--to face the truth.

I won a giveaway and the prize was to select a book from The Book Depository.
I'd been seeing so many book bloggers rave about how wonderful this book was so I decided to find out for myself!

This book had been on my TBR for over a year now and I've just been waiting on the mood to strike... The praise for the book is high and I'm always nervous about beginning a book when it's like that but the book is so pretty sitting on my bookshelf and I can't resist it anymore! I'm finally ready to dive in!

Have you read it? What did you think?


  1. I really liked Evelyn Hugo. I think it lives up to all the hype.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  2. I never read a book with a reverse harem. Just haven’t come across one yet. In my opinion, Evelyn Hugo totally lives up to the hype. Can’t wait to see what you think!

  3. I hope you like the book you picked. I have only read a handful of reverse harem books and some are ok while others just don't work. I guess it depends on the book.

  4. Magic Misfit sounds good! Hope you enjoy it.

  5. I love Evelyn Hugo! What a great pick! I also had it on my shelf for over a year before finally reading it -- so worth it!

  6. I have yet to read a TJR book, but everyone raves about all her books.

  7. Evelyn Hugo definitely sounds good, I've been wanting to read more of her stuff.

  8. I like the first book cover but multiple sexy men love interests and harems are certainly not for Chuckles!

  9. I also want to read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo! 📚✨

  10. That first line of Magic Misfit is great! And the other book sounds intriguing, especially as there is some secret that connects them. I hope you love both of them!

  11. I've only read one reverse harem book. I did like it, but it's an author that I already know I love, so I think that makes all the difference.
