To Victoria, On Your Release Day

Happy release day, Victoria. This day is yours and I wanted to do a little something to make it even more special. I hope you like it.


Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books.

Each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures that only Librarians can read. The dead are called Histories, and the vast realm in which they rest is the Archive.

Da first brought Mackenzie Bishop here four years ago, when she was twelve years old, frightened but determined to prove herself. Now Da is dead, and Mac has grown into what he once was, a ruthless Keeper, tasked with stopping often-violent Histories from waking up and getting out. Because of her job, she lies to the people she loves, and she knows fear for what it is: a useful tool for staying alive.

Being a Keeper isn't just dangerous-it's a constant reminder of those Mac has lost. Da's death was hard enough, but now her little brother is gone too. Mac starts to wonder about the boundary between living and dying, sleeping and waking. In the Archive, the dead must never be disturbed. And yet, someone is deliberately altering Histories, erasing essential chapters. Unless Mac can piece together what remains, the Archive itself might crumble and fall.

In this haunting, richly imagined novel, Victoria Schwab reveals the thin lines between past and present, love and pain, trust and deceit, unbearable loss and hard-won redemption.


This book is truly amazing and I wish to share it with the world. And now that it's released, I can! Enter to win one of two copies below!

  14. I just can't even with this book right now. I almost ordered The Archived just the other day since I had a little cash for books. But I didn't. And I've been kicking myself every time I see it on the internet ever since.
    BUT I have a B&N gift card coming in the mail soon and you can bet it will be the first book I buy!

    Happy release day :D

  15. HAPPY HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY!! I'll start reading it tonight - I actually waited until today to begin because my best friend hadn't gotten it yet.

    but I re-read The Near Witch over the last few days, so I had my daily dose of Victoria writing :)
