With only a few days until release date, I am over the moon about getting this book. It's one of my most anticipated releases of the year. There are so many gorgeous editions being made, it is definitely hard to chose just one! Especially when it's a book by my favorite author. 

Today I've decided to share with you all the special editions I have located and where you can find these gorgeous books.

  • Owlcrate 


Owlcrate has dedicated an entire box to the release of Addie LaRue!

(From Owlcrate's Website)

* An exclusive signed first edition hardcover copy of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab. This edition will not have a dust jacket, instead there will be an exclusive cover printed in foil on the hardcover itself. This edition will also feature exclusive end papers and a sewn ribbon bookmark!
* 6 high quality items inspired by the book that were exclusively made just for this box!
* There will be a mixture of stunning home goods (including a candle), drink-ware, stationery and more!

All of the items in the box are inspired by The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue. We have been working closely with V.E. Schwab and all of the special goodies have been officially approved by her. We are so thrilled to celebrate the release of this monumental story in such a big way!

- I bought this special edition box as soon as Owlcrate opened up the pre-orders and you're in luck, there are still some in stock and you can get your box here.

  • Illumicrate

Now unfortunately, you are not able to get this box. Illumicrate announced the book for this box and have already sold out. They are currently on a waiting list for November I believe.

Our October theme is LIFE & DEATH! Our featured book this month is…well. We’ve hinted and we’ve teased, but we can now finally come out and say we’ve chosen THE INVISIBLE LIFE OF ADDIE LARUE by V.E Schwab! This book is truly incredible and we’re so happy to be bringing you a gorgeous Illumicrate edition featuring all exclusive: cover, hidden cover, endpapers, and sprayed edges! It will also be signed by Victoria! Both the full box & book only options come with a gorgeous pin inspired by the book and designed by Stacey McEvoy-Caunt!

We’ve decided to do something a little different this time and bring you a fandom neutral box! We will be including one item inspired by The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue, but beyond that all our items are beautiful items not inspired by a particular fandom. We’ve loved putting this box together! It’s one of our most aesthetic boxes ever and it is super atmospheric and perfect for this time of year! We’ve got some exciting reveals to bring you.

  • Barnes and Noble

Barnes and Noble has three hardcover options to choose from! All books have the original covers, one is a regular copy, one is a signed regular copy and the third is the Barnes and Noble exclusive edition. The exclusive edition includes the bonus story, "Addie Through The Ages: A Ghost in the Frame". You can get your copy here.

  • Waterstones

This is the UK version of the book with a beautiful dust jacket. This is the standard dust jacket for the UK, however there are a few things that make this special. The Waterstones Special Edition has signed tip-in pages, sprayed edges, and exclusive casing and exclusive end papers. There are still some in stock and you can order your copy here.

  • Forbidden Planet

Last but not least, we have this beautiful blue beauty from Forbidden Planet. This is also the UK version but the dust jacket is slightly changed. This special edition features a blue colour way cover and binding with blue foil accents. It also includes a three page short story ‘A Ghost in the Frame’ (Is this the same short story from Barnes and Noble I wonder? Most likely) You can order your copy here!


I'm super excited to see what Owlcrate and Illumicrate do with their cover changes and how they compare to the original books artwork. Which is your favorite so far? I normally think the UK has prettier covers, but I'm actually going to go with the US version this time.

** I am in no way paid to promote this book or any of these companies. I just love VE Schwab and beautiful books.
