Minute Review: The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab

Liked it, but didn’t quite love it.

Having been blown away by Vicious when I first read it in 2018, I expected nothing less from VE Scwhab’s latest work, but it’s a shame it didn’t quite deliver for me.

The premise was interesting and I dare say brilliant. A three hundred year old girl who is cursed to be forgotten by anyone that comes across her path but one day she suddenly finds a man who remembers her. It should be nothing but a page turner, but I found so many parts of this book to be dragging, too elaborate, and even unnecessary. The good outweighs the bad, though, and I still had a good time reading it. It was a new reading experience and the story is one that is not easily forgotten.

Tell me what you think if you’ve read this book!

Happy reading!

  1. I have to say that I felt similarly. I didn’t end up loving the book and it really dragged in parts, which was a shame. I don’t know if it was hyped too much or if it was something else, but I prefer other books by Schwab. (I’m a sucker for This Savage Song)


    1. After reading it, I checked its overall rating in Goodreads and was so surprised that it has a 4.30 average rating! I’d definitely say it was overhyped. It wasn’t a bad book, though, I did not hate it. It just didn’t deliver the way I expected it to.
