The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab
France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever-and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets.
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.
But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore, and he remembers her name.
Everyone’s kind of going a bit nuts over this book, right? Well, this was kind of a blind date with a book for me, because my mother had spoken to a friend about my book tastes and the friend suggested I might like this book, but when my mother told me about it, she couldn’t remember the title. So I said yes to the offer to borrow it just to be polite and also out of curiosity, but I ended up borrowing a book I’ve been seeing making the Best Of 2020 lists for a lot of people!
Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller
How do you kill a god?
As her father’s chosen heir, eighteen-year-old Rasmira has trained her whole life to become a warrior and lead her village. But when her coming-of-age trial is sabotaged and she fails the test, her father banishes her to the monster-filled wilderness with an impossible quest: To win back her honor, she must kill the oppressive god who claims tribute from the villages each year—or die trying.
I borrowed this from my library to complete my goal of reading/listening to all of Tricia Levenseller’s backlist.
