However, whilst this book emphasized on palimpsests and the meanings of making your mark, of love, and of finding your way in the world, I was lost in how not only white but how eurocentric this novel was. Her own private constellation.Next
This ambitious and hopeful work is a knockout.
Because of this, keeping track of important characters proved to be a challenge.Next

It is a story that deals with the consequences of our actions, how one choice can make life fall apart at the seams, and how ev Déjà vu.Next
Literally speechless, wordless, expressionless, blinking, sighing, awed, adored, fell hard, truly loved! This just felt half-baked and silly.
How many times Addie's seven beautiful freckles form a constellation or some shit? She loved, she hurt, she suffered, she is neglected, abandoned, abused. This sweeping fantasy is as much a love story as it is a tribute to storytelling, art, and inspiration.Next
The Invisible Life of Addie Larue will enchant readers as deeply as its heroine's Faustian bargain; you will find yourself in quick turns both aching with heartbreak, and gleefully crowing at the truly delicious, wicked cleverness in store.
There will be lots of heavy days, but lots of light days too, I promise. Stories come in so many forms: in charcoal, and in song, in paintings, poems, films.
In exchange, no one remembers who she is.
A Story You Will Never Forget. 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.
Instead of soaring high it fell rather flat for me.
But we get to see Luc, and Henry, and Addie, and watch their intertangled stories unwind.
A defiant, joyous rebellion against time, fate, and even death itself—and a powerful reminder that the only magic great enough to conquer all of it is love.
Not the right drive. Adeline is three and twenty, already too old to wed. A Story You Will Never Forget.
