FIRST OF ALL, thank you thank you thank you to TOR for not only sending me a physical ARC of Addie in exchange for an honest review, but for gracing me with an influencer box! I feel ridiculously honored to have received it, and I will honor it with my life!
Addie. Addie. Addie.
How? How to I describe my love of this book? How do I write down a review for a book that means so much?
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab is already a classic. It has the feel of centuries, a story traveled over history, over wars and revolutions and art and memory. Or the lack thereof. It tells of a girl that learns how to work her curse-or her gift- how to take advantage of the forgetfulness of everyone.
This is a story of grief, of loving, of finding over and over again. Of haunting and endings and beginnings. This is a story for those that need something MORE, for those that are in search of a character to pity and love and understand.
Addie LaRue traded away her name and being remembered to live forever. "Everyone wants to be remembered" but Addie will never be remembered. Would you trade away an eternity of time to never be remembered? To have the clock reset every time someone leaves the room or closes the door?
Addie LaRue will be remembered. And this? This is my favorite book. Of V.E. Schwab's. Of 2020. Of EVER. I know I often rant and rave about how amazing her books are, but I mean this with all my heart. This book and I were meant to be. This is the book I've been looking for. Pre-order this, read this. I don't know how else to convince you that this book deserves its place on your shelf. Or in your heart. 5 stars is not enough to rate this book, but it will have to do!
