Waiting on Wednesday (27)

: The Unbound
Author: Victoria Schwab

Expected Release Date: January 28, 2014

Goodreads Description: 

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.

Last summer, Mackenzie Bishop, a Keeper tasked with stopping violent Histories from escaping the Archive, almost lost her life to one. Now, as she starts her junior year at Hyde School, she's struggling to get her life back. But moving on isn't easy -- not when her dreams are haunted by what happened. She knows the past is past, knows it cannot hurt her, but it feels so real, and when her nightmares begin to creep into her waking hours, she starts to wonder if she's really safe.

Meanwhile, people are vanishing without a trace, and the only thing they seem to have in common is Mackenzie. She's sure the Archive knows more than they are letting on, but before she can prove it, she becomes the prime suspect. And unless Mac can track down the real culprit, she'll lose everything, not only her role as Keeper, but her memories, and even her life. Can Mackenzie untangle the mystery before she herself unravels?

With stunning prose and a captivating mixture of action, romance, and horror, The Unbound delves into a richly imagined world where no choice is easy and love and loss feel like two sides of the same coin.

Why I'm Waiting: 

Okay, so this one is further out than I normally do a WoW post on but I adored The Archived and am super excited for it's sequel. I really thought it was coming out earlier. I know a year is pretty much standard but I thought I had heard it was coming out later this year. According to Goodreads, that is incorrect. Anyways if you haven't read The Archived you really need to! You won't regret it!


  1. I cannot wait for this sequel either!! The Archived was incredible, I can't believe we have to wait until next January for Book 2. D:

  3. I haven't gotten to the first book yet but I am dying to read. This one has a super pretty cover :)


  4. I haven't read the Archived, I still don't own a copy, but I heard THE BEST things about it and omg the COVERS are gorgeous!
