{AD|gifted} Today is my turn on the bookstagram tour for THE INVISIBLE LIFE OF ADDIE LARUE by @veschwab and I’m still not over how much I loved this book.⁠ ✨⁠ Despite having high expectations, V.E. Schwab somehow exceeded them in every way and ADDIE quickly became one of my favourite books of 2020. Exploring what it means to be human through the connections we forge in life and the legacy we leave the world, Addie LaRue is a phenomenal work of art.⁠ ✨⁠ Focusing on Addie’s life over 300 years (after she makes a Faustian bargain), it is impossible not to empathise with Addie. I just adored the vulnerabilities she displayed alongside her determination to change the world. She was so complex and well written.⁠ ✨⁠ Throughout her life, Addie has had numerous lovers but two are focused on – the mysterious bookseller Henry and Luc, the ‘devil’ Addie made the bargain with. I identified with Henry so much and I imagine many of us have experienced his fears. It’s a slower process to understand Luc but his development was engaging and certainly an interesting twist. However, I loved that the author always remained focused on Addie herself. ⁠ ✨⁠ If you haven't read this book yet then I urge you to beg, borrow or buy a copy ASAP! It's the perfect antidote to the miseries of 2020.⁠ ✨⁠ Thank you to @titanbooks for my complimentary finished copy which was absolutely stunning – blue sprayed edges, stunning endpapers, and a hidden design on the cover.⁠ ✨⁠ #bookstagram #books #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #igreads #bibliophile #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #irememberaddie #theinvisiblelifeofaddielarue
