The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab

Hey guys!
Today I bring you a novel I am beyond excited about. I can’t even wait until the review portion to tell you how much I loved The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. Let’s find out why, shall we? 😉

The Plot (as found on Goodreads):

A Life No One Will Remember. A Story You Will Never Forget.

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. 

The Rating:

Oh, the concept, the main character, the French setting, the New York setting, the *everything*!
