Review: The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I remember going to an author talk with V.E. Schwab before her book came out, early on in the pandemic where author talks were just starting to move online. I was intrigued by her passion for the novel and how much of herself she had poured into it. And now I finally read it!

There are two books that feel similar to me - the concepts and storyline are not the same but something about the tone and feeling I get as a reader are a good match. One is The Time Traveler's Wife and the other is The Ten Thousand Doors of January. You have a woman navigating the world in an unusual way, never being fully understood, trading off mundane life for this other way....

In Addie LaRue, she flees her wedding in the early 1700s and strikes up a bargain not to live a normal life. Everything that comes after is really something to experience as a reader.

True to form, I had a copy of this from the publisher through NetGalley but it came out back on October 6th and I'm just reading it now!
