Cover Puppies (20) - The Archived by Victoria Schwab

Thursday, June 12, 2014

Cover Puppies is a weekly post here on Pivot Book Reviews, where I combine my extreme love for my doggies and YA books, and recreate my favorite book covers with my puppies!

This week, I'm featuring..

The Archived by Victoria Schwab!!

FROM GOODREADS: 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.


It's been over a year since I read The Archived, but I recently won a copy of The Unbound so when I got it in the mail the other day, I instantly thought that the first book would be a great addition to Cover Puppies! I was originally going to do a joint cover with both Dixie and Gentry for a different book this week, but Gentry got sick this week. She hasn't been feeling well, so I decided to pester just Dixie this week! I remember enjoying The Archived, but I know a ton of people really love it. I'm looking forward to diving back into the rich world that Victoria has created!! Do you think Dixie would make a good Keeper? :P
