Bookish notes - The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue


I'm completely enamoured with V.E. Scwab's The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue.  Having a hard time putting it down.  Started reading it yesterday and for the first time in a long while, took the book to bed until 1:30 or so.   😁  Good thing I have the day off.  Back to reading this morning all the way through lunch time. Taking a break to get things done.  

"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."

 Finished Pratchett's The Colour of Magic which was really good and weird to say the least. The blurb was right. Where ever Rincewind went, chaos followed. How often can you say the character of Death is amusing.
