The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab - A Review


Hello everyone!!

Today we are talking about my most anticipated book of 2020. It is of course The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab that was 10 years in the making and was published on October 6th by Tor Books.

First of all, V. E. Schwab is one of my favourite authors and I had high hopes for her latest book. 
Well, I have no words!! I loved Addie LaRue. This book was everything I was expecting and more. 
It is very different from everything Victoria has written and it is incredible. I loved every aspect of it. 
I liked that we experience Addie's life both in the past, throughout the centuries, and in the present day in New York. 
Addie is a strong and independent woman and despite all the difficulties that she faces she goes on and gathers new experiences every day. I also liked Henry but not as much as Addie and his chapters were the least favourites of mine. My favourites though were the ones that took place in the past and involved Luc.

I think you should definitely read The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. I will certainly reread it some time soon .

Rating: 5 Stars

Synopsis from Goodreads:
France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever-and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets.
Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world.
But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore, and he remembers her name.
In the vein of The Time Traveler's Wife and Life After Life, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is New York Times bestselling author V. E. Schwab's #1 New York Times Bestselling Author genre-defying tour de force. 

See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
