Blog review: https://trishadoeseverythingbutstudy2.wordpress.com/2021/01/01/my-november-in-bo...

I.....just loved it!

The romance was horrible. I could have done without all of it, and I would have still loved this. Not only because it was really confusing, because boy was it confusing, but it was just shoved into the story when the MC didn't need anyone. I would've loved really good friendship more than the main romance, or is it romances?

Yes, you read that right, it is kinda a love triangle, but not really? Like I said, confusing. I can't exactly say a lot without spoilers, so: Was there even a romance in this? The feeling I got was that, 1) Addie hates Luc, and she's still plotting against him, and 2) She was lying (if I read that right) to Henry when she said she loved him. I would have loved if we just had a Henry/Addie friendship, since that was the only part of their relationship that made sense, and her outsmarting Luc once Henry was free.

Since we're on the topic of spoilers, I should probably include that I wanted way more from that ending than I got. I would have liked an epilogue where we just see Addie free again. Nothing else. I don't even want to know if Henry is alive, or how she outsmarted Luc; I just want a happy ending.


The first 2-3 chapters were confusing, and slightly boring, but if you stick through, it does get better (or at least, it got for me). At first, I didn't get the time skips, and the museum pieces, but slowly they made sense! I'd like to say I learnt a lot from The Night Circus , and made sure to read the chapter titles. That saved me from even more confusion.

What else, what else.....The writing was beautiful. I felt Addie's pain, I felt her heartbreak, I felt her despair, I felt her happiness, I felt everything. That's one of the things I love about Victoria Schwab, and I'll be reading more books by her for sure.

The best word to describe Addie's life before 2014 is probably depressing. It's like nothing, absolutely nothing is going right for her. That scene in 1714 with her parents and friends? That was devastating, and I was probably crying. No, scratch that, I was definitely crying.

During 'I Remember You', the seventh part, I was once again trying to read through blurry eyes, trying to read without wailing, because that ending with Henry was just beautiful, and I liked that we came full circle with the book.The girl who no one could remember known by an entire generation of readers everywhere? Yeah I was sobbing.

I loved it, and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes the concept of Faustian bargains, loopholes in those bargains, girls who dream of more than their fixed lives, people who just want to be liked, friendships, relationships, despair, devastation and Death with a capital 'D' (I think). ( )

This is the only V.E. Schwab book that I didn't force myself to finish. ( )

What can happen if you sell your soul to live completely independent. Addie LaRue does this. She prays to the dark and ends up living forever because to end things she has to give her soul to the dark. The story spans from the end of the 17th century to 2014. Addie cannot leave a mark, she is never remembered. Her life is hard but she learns. She engages in a battle with the dark that granted her wish and holds the payment in her soul. The story examines history and art through the years.

The story was mostly enjoyable but at heart it is a romance. I feel that if could have been just as good without the kowtowing to the gender/sexual political pressure. NPR states; "It's a bit cheeky to call The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue Faust for romantic bisexual goths, but it's not wrong."

Loved this. It made me think of Life After Life, which I also loved. I'm not sure why because it is a very different story but there was something about the style and structure that kept me reminiscing about Life After Life. ( )

Well now, hello first 5-star read of 2021! Yes, technically there have been two others, but they were both rereads and I already knew I was going to love them again. This book, oh this book, felt like it magically appeared at a time when I wanted it most. The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue captivated me from the moment that it started. It’s true that I’m a sucker for tragic love story at the best of times, but this particular story is like a piece of art. The more that you stare at it, the more that you allow yourself to be immersed, the more you find to uncover.

Addie was a beautifully complex character, and my heart went out to her immediately. As her life unfolded on the pages, both the past and the present intermingling with one another, I was in awe of how rough, messy and fragile it truly was. A lot of times I feel like Fantasy books have a habit of making a character too black or white. When, in fact, we are all some shade of gray in between. Addie’s character embraces that wholeheartedly. She is wild, and broken, and beautiful. She is simultaneously brave and utterly heartbroken. It’s truly almost impossible not to love her, simply because she is so relatable. When she met Henry, and their two kinds of gray meshed together into something somehow so much brighter, I was completely sold. You couldn’t have pried this book out of my hands if you tried.

I sometimes have issues with books that flip back and forth between time periods, especially on audio. Since I half listened to this, and half read it, I was worried that I might fall back into that trap. There was no need to worry. Schwab makes the transitions feel completely natural as Addie’s story slowly comes to light. The pacing is perfect, in my opinion. It never felt like like too little was being shared, or that too much was happening too quickly. Even as the book approached the ending, and my heart knew that it was in for something painful, the pace felt on point. My favorite part were the small, quiet moments in this story. They never felt unnecessary, or out of place. What they did was bring the link between Addie and Henry even more into the forefront and, of course, made them even harder not to love.

If you can’t tell, I am trying extremely hard not to spoil anything because this is a story that absolutely needs to be experienced sight unseen. I knew next to nothing about what I was getting myself into before I started this, and I’m honestly so happy about that. It made every little detail, every win and every loss, that much more vivid for me. It made the character growth that much more palpable, and the heartbreak that much more devastating. With all the reading I do now, it’s hard sometimes to find books that truly feel new. The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue gave me that feeling. It swept me away, and I went willingly. This was one stellar read, and my only regret is that I can’t erase my memory and read it again for the first time. ( )

This sweeping fantasy is as much a love story as it is a tribute to storytelling, art, and inspiration. Schwab’s diverse cast is beautifully rendered, and the view of human connection on offer is biting and bitter, yet introspective and sweet. This ambitious and hopeful work is a knockout.

The old gods may be great, but they are neither kind nor merciful. They are fickle, unsteady as moonlight on water, or shadows in a storm. If you insist on calling them, take heed: be careful what you ask for, be willing to pay the price. And no matter how desperate or dire, never pray to the gods that answer after dark.

Estele Magritte, 1642-1719
