Waiting on Wednesday (13)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, where we book bloggers talk about upcoming releases we are excited for. This week I'm looking forward to:

The Archived (The Archived #1)
By: Victoria Schwab
Publication date: January 22, 2013
The Archived (The Archived, #1)
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.
Doesn't this just look fantastic?! And the cover is so pretty! Also, I am about to read the 100 page sneak peek you can get from NetGalley. Victoria Scwab is giving away The Archived bookmarks to people who read it & answer her 2 trivia questions! So yeah. Gonna do that. And I really like Victoria Schwab, so her book should be good, right? So, go to to do all that!

What are you guys waiting on this week?

  1. Yes, yes, yes - I'm looking forward to reading this one too. And I love the cover.

  2. So I've only read the first three lines of the synopsis thus far, and I already want to read it badly. Great choice! Also very jealous of the sneak peek. This one sounds just creepy enough to be up my alley!

    My WOW:

  3. I'm really excited for this one as well. It sounds so good! I'm really excited for 2013. I think there are many great novels coming out next year. (:


I love to hear what people think, and commenting lets me know you were here! Speak your minds! (Please :D)
