Yes, you read that title right. This girl right here got her hands on a review copy of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. Written by only the most amazing author out there. I cannot explain how happy I am right now. A huge thank you to the miracle workers at Tor Books for making this dream come true! This blog will be spoiler free and will mostly be about my experience with the book. You’ll probably have to wait for a review though because I’ll need to post it closer to release date.

So I got this wonderful review copy on Friday (much excite) and only got around to reading it at 1 PM so technically, Saturday. It’s now 9 PM and I just put the book down for a little blogging time. I’m on page 139 at the moment. The book is moving at a steady pace and I’m honestly in love with the slowness. Does that make sense? It’s just making me all cozy and having some hot chocolate a scented candle in the room is doing wonders. I’ll probably continue much later in the night since that’s the perfect time to read for me. It’ll probably be Sunday already by then but I’m trying not to devour this too fast because then I’ll be waiting so much longer until this releases.

Readers, I am in love. I suppose this is also the right time for me to mention that I’m already 327 page in…and the book is only 480 pages long. So much for me dragging it into next month. This is clearly going to be done by at least tomorrow. I have an audibook on hand too but my mind just keeps wandering back to this book. It’s so easy to read, and next thing you know you’ve read a whole chunk of it which is exactly what I did.
That’s what I love about V.E. Schwab’s books. There’s always this urgency when reading it that you never even realize until you’ve closed the book.

Oh goodness, I just finished this book. I’m having an emotional crisis. This book wasn’t the way I expected at all. I don’t really know what I had in mind to be completely honest but this was worth every minute. I still don’t have the words to describe how I’m feeling but I loved this book with every fiber of my being. V.E. Schwab you have ruined me once again. There was a slowness but it was one that I wanted to get lost in if that makes sense. I didn’t mind the pace or anything really, I was simply enjoying the story. I had tears in my eyes and a smile on my face, and that just proved how amazing it was. *Sigh* is it strange to say I want to read it again?
