Okay, this book is a beautiful, amazing, stunning journey that you MUST read! I was completely and utterly in love with Addie and her invisible life. I am now a complete V.E. Schwab fan and must go devour all of the other books by her!

Addie LaRue’s deal with the devil reduces her to a fleeting, forgotten memory to every single person she meets. She can’t die, but she can’t leave a mark on the world. I loved reading about her journey as she learns how to live with each stumbling block.

Just think about it, you can’t rent a room because the person will forget that you paid, you can’t start a relationship because you are forgotten the moment you use the restroom, your family doesn’t remember you, and you live forever…

Addie was a character that I fell in love with immediately. She’s smart but vulnerable, and I just loved her. Really, all of the characters are amazing. I couldn’t read this book fast enough. I have nothing but love for this book.

Read it. You won’t regret it.

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue to readers that enjoy a time-spanning story of love and loss.
