A Review: The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue was one of the first books I received from the Book of the Month Club. If you're interested in trying it out, your first book is only $5 if you use my link, and I get credit towards more books (yay...thanks!!).  So far I've found it to be a very practical way to get your hands on some REALLY good books.  Click here if you'd like to try it!


It's 1714, the worth of a woman for the most part is who she will marry and how many children she will have for her husband. This is not the life Addie LaRue wants for herself.  She doesn't know what the whole world has to offer her yet, but she knows she wants to be free to find out.  She prays, and leaves offerings to any god that will hear her, with a warning never to pray to the gods of the night. In her despair, she ends up doing just that and makes a Faustian bargain...for the freedom to live the life of her choosing until she is finished with it, she will give her soul. The catch to this bargain: no one remembers her. 


I absolutely loved this book. Easily a five star review.  The story mainly stays from Addie's perspective, and while she initially bit off more than she can chew, she adapted and overcame her situation and eventually thrived in what Luc hoped she'd quickly fail in. She did it all on her own. There is a bit of romance near the end that I don't want to give any spoilers about so I will just leave you with a heat level. This is a story of desperation, regret, loneliness, and perseverance. 

Heat Rating: 5/10  -- There was sex in this book, but the sex was not steamy or detailed. 

Disclaimer: I purchased this book on my own to read and review. There are links to Amazon, clicking these links won't cost you anything but any purchase helps support this blog.  Thanks!
