The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
Well well well… if it isn’t one of the internet’s most favorite queer adult stories. I am so late to the game to review this and honestly, I don’t think I’m going to say anything that hasn’t been said before or really contribute much to the conversation as a whole…. but I’m still going toContinue reading “The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo”

Take Me Apart is about Kate going through the records of a famous artist, Miranda Brand, as she begins to unravel the hiddenContinue reading “Take Me Apart”
