Have loved the other books by Schwab I've read - immediately putting this on my "to read" list. However, our libraries have moved to a subscription book-supply company and we don't have as much control over what we get as we used to. I hope at least ONE of our libraries get this title, otherwise it will have to be as an e-book (which I tolerate, but isn't my favoured format).
Looking forward to more post-surgery book reviews from you!


Interesting. . . I felt that Adeline didn't want a life like her mother's or Isabelle's because she wanted to have a choice. I didn't see that as the author disrespecting the life choices of the other characters.

Unlike Isabelle and other women of her time, you have had the chance to work in a library, hike beautiful countryside, participate in hobbies you love, like reading, quilting, and scrapbooking, and have a family, too. Not my place to say so, obviously, but your life doesn't look small and average to me. :-)


Amy, thank you for sharing your thoughts on The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. I finished the book yesterday. I found it to be literally and figuratively magical, a beautiful story of love and loss and learning what we truly want in life. I agree with you regarding her ability to learn to read (multiple languages) on her own. I also would have loved to have seen more history through her eyes and experiences. I didn't have an issue with Addie not wanting Isabelle's life. It's not for everyone.
