    As I do my final read-through on this book, a story nearly 10 years in the making, all I can think is that I've put my heart and soul, my teeth and blood and bones into this one.

    I hope you love it.

    All I'm saying is there are 10 unreleased Schwab books on my to read list.
    8 of them do not have a cover.
    5 of them do not have a title.

    Victoria Schwab thinks she can just come back into my life and write a book about a French girl who falls in love with the devil and expect me to be okay with it? You're damn right! I'll be at the front row. Take. All. My. Money.

    August 2nd '17 — So Schwab briefly discussed this book at the authors event AND MY GOD ARE WE IN FOR A RIDE OF A STORY!!! She mentioned that this story is the closest she'll come to writing a love story. And just the concept of a girl falling in love with the devil... HOOOOW DOES SHE COME UP WITH THESE IDEAS?!!

    Now, it's the agonising thing we have to do called waiting till fuckin' 2019. I better be alive.


    Initial reaction:
    That title though!!!

    A book about a girl who sells her soul to the devil?

    Are you sure this isn't about me? Because I've sold my soul to Victoria Schwab.

    For some reason I (and apparently a lot of people on twitter) thought this was going to be YA but it's an adult standalone and LOOK AT THIS AESTHETIC!!

    RIP me forever

    When I met Victoria Schwab on her Vengeful tour yesterday, she said, regarding Addie la Rue, "It's the closest thing I will ever write to a love story, which should concern you all so much." So that's great.

    That might quite possibly be the best synopsis I've ever read and it's only a sentence.

    Brb guys, I'm time-traveling to 2019. Don't worry, I won't spoil the ending for ya.

    If ratings were based solely on titles, I'd give this book a 5, right now.

    If you had to factor in the idea itself, well...

    *star counter breaks*

    VICTORIA SCHWAB WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO MY HEART?????????

    Also, does anyone else have the feeling like this is gonna be the best thing ever?

    SO. MANY. EXPECTATIONS.
