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!

Ticket for two: Spiderman: Homecoming (2017)

Ticket for Two is a segment in this blog where I will be  quicklyreviewing” movies with the biggest movie/tv series buff I know, Ed (not Sheeran, not Harris, not Burns; just Ed). 🙂 Don’t expect full blown reviews, though, because we will probably not deliver. Quick insights – likes and dislikes, ratings, and that’s it. It should still be fun, though 🙂


“Peter Parker, with the help of his mentor Tony Stark, tries to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in New York City while fighting crime as his superhero alter ego Spider-Man when a new threat emerges.”

Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka His Royal Hotness, is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant; hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you. Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty who doesn’t bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face.
Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants.
Dating a prince isn’t what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be.There’s a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they’ve traded in horse drawn carriages for Rolls Royces, and haven’t chopped anyone’s head off lately, the royals are far from accepting of this commoner.
But to Olivia, Nicholas is worth it.
Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is and, more importantly, who he wants to be: a King… or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.
