Thank you to Addie LaRue author VE Schwab for re-popularizing the term ‘Faustian bargain’ and for writing a book with such an interesting concept: how to leave your mark on the world when no one can remember you. It’s very cool to see how our protagonist approaches the challenge.
Hard to get into then hard not to love, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is a perfectly packaged bit of supernatural romance for your local book club or your individual reading pleasure.
A quarter into this book, I felt the lull that many girls in our group experienced, but once I got past the “Eat, Pray, Love” part of Addie’s curse, the stakes finally got higher and it was more fun. And then, I just breezed through. In our book club discussion, we had fun thinking up ideas for where the story could go next…
Addie LaRue will be adapted into a movie, produced by Gerard Butler’s company G-base. This is another one that would be really fun on screen, not only to see how the casting compares with how I envisioned the characters, but also to see the fantasy & horror elements adapted into visual eye candy.
Our next book … The Secret Lives of Church Ladies by Deesha Philyaw (post to follow). I am very much looking forward to this book even though I have almost no idea what to expect from this collection of short stories…except that I heard it was spicier than the title may suggest!
