  1. Writing this book gave me hives Finishing it gave me an ulcer Revising it made me hypertensive I am pretty sure it nearly killed me Here s hoping it doesn t hurt you to read At least not in the same ways it hurt me to write And yes, there is a metric ton of Wesley Ayers.

  2. Smiling is the worst thing you can do if you want the world to think you re okay when you re not So this could ve been the perfect book but there was one big thing or better, a character which annoyed me to the point where I wanted to stop reading Owen Chris Clarke I thought this chapter was over and I hoped I would not have to see him again in the sequel, but I did Much to my disappointment he had a huge impact on the plot Apart from him, this book was awesome and flawless and Victoria Schwab a [...]

  3. Buddy read 2 with the KnightessThe best feeling ever is when a book and its characters and its plot and its setting captivates you to a point where you d rather live forever between its pages than return to real life And this book has done that for me The second book in theArchivedseries,Unboundcontinues a few weeks after we left book one Mackenzie is about to begin school at the prestigious Hyde School and despite her verynormalteen worries, her constant daunting nightmares are beginning to tak [...]

  4. To all the people who like me, thought A Gathering of Shadows was the best Victoria Schwab, or anybody for that matter could do I love everything about this book Everything I love Roland I love Wesley Ayers I love Dallas I even like Cash, poor guy But above them all, I love Mackenzie Bishop.You know why Because as Roland would say, she makes things infinitely interesting Which reminds me, this was BR 2 with Joshua Templeman s biggest fan, who made things infinitely interesting for me What alwa [...]

  6. The funny thing about armor is that it doesn t just keep other people out It keeps us in We build it up around us, not realizing that we re trapping ourselves Oh guys, I loved this book much than the first one, so I m very happy to have continued with the series, although I feel that it wasn t very smart of me, since now I want and I ve realized that there are no books after this one for the moment and I m just like WHY 4.5 5 StarsYou can find this one and of my review on my blog A Book A Th [...]

  7. I enjoyed The Archived so much I had to move on quickly to its sequel There s always a danger that the second book in a series does not match up to the first but this one does It actually reminded me a lot of Twilight since our heroine starts a new school and immediately gets herself into a bit of a love triangle However the action outside the school quickly picks up and the last part of the book races to a dramatic and very satisfying climax I am now in that awful position of waiting for the ne [...]

  8. Rating ALL THE STARS This series is so unique, action pack, humorous, and it keeps you on your toes I wish people would give this series a chance because this book it underrated heavily slept on Although, because not many have experienced this amazing book, I feel special for being a part of the small few But for realREAD IT NOW P.S Wes is a very pretty excuse Hehe

  9. No sequel trauma here What a knockout Back with our independent heroine Mac, we start off with a new beginning, a new territory school Mackenzie is trying to cope with the trauma she experienced in the previous book with Owen, while attempting to take control of her life Easier said than done in her case.She finds it of course difficult since she suffers from morbid night terrors involving Owen that start to bleed into her waking life making her wonder if she s slowly going insane What s especia [...]

  10. 2.5 stars SpoilersNot as good as the first book, it was mostly disappointing The latter half of The Unbound was quite good, unfortunately the first half was a struggle to get through as nothing really happened except the main character whining non stop about her life What s what Mackenzie is a Keeper, she finds Histories escaped ghosts of sorts and returns them to the Archive where they re kept.In this one Mackenzie starts her new school And then people go missing, she thinks it has to do with h [...]

  11. Thank goodness this didn t fall victim to Second Book Syndrome While I do think I enjoyed The Archived a tiny bit better than The Unbound, this was still up there as a tightly plotted and well written book The best thing about both books is that the mystery is really solid My mind was constantly trying to figure out who the bad guy was or how things would turn out in the end, but it surprised me Also, Wesley FTW The thing that bugged me was Mac s inability to trust Wesley I understand why she h [...]

  12. The funny thing about armor is that it doesn t just keep other people out It keeps us in We build it up around us, not realizing that we re trapping ourselves Another beautiful installment to this series, this book is the second book in the Archived series or duo logy I hope it becomes a trilogy, please make it a trilogy This was just so good, I am so happy I read this book on Christmas because it made my day After writing my last review, for the first book, the Archived, I get comfortable and w [...]

  13. Brilliant 2nd book and it s sitting right next to the first one on my 2017 favourite shelf Ms Schwab has done it again I loved the first book, it was so different to anything I ve ever read before The fact that Histories are people that have died and they are stored like books in a library was one of the reasons this series caught my attention The first book delved into the mysteries right away and the way the story played out had me anticipating the moves and getting them entirely wrong An amaz [...]

  14. 4,5 Victoria Schwab strikes again Every time I finish one of her books I get so emotional, and this time is no different This sequel was so good I just hope in a third book, cause I ve grown very attached to this series and its characters and I m not ready to leave them yet.

  15. I love this series and I can t believe I don t hear talk of it often Such a unique world Perfectly dark and mysteriousd that s why Victoria Schwab is the QUEEN Great endingI felt like I wasn t left with a major cliffhanger but I definitely want

  16. Prep school Wesley was a thing that I never knew of but holy hell, am I glad it exists.You ll never get a real review from me I put this book off for exactly a year I just needed to know Wesley s real name But instead I was hit by a truck of emotions Apparently I was so caught up the first time that I didn t even rate The Archived Why was past Jess so lazy Half the load of words that I ve read in my lifetime aren t even recorded because I a think too highly of myself and hence believe that I m s [...]

  17. Buddy read with the adorable Anna and the fabulousElena 4.5 Stars Open your eyes, he warns.I drag them open and find his face inches from mine Why I growl So I can see the truth His smile sharpens No, he says So I can watch the life go out of them And then he drives the knife forward into my chest.Well, well, well.lor me surprised You see, I received an ARC after finishing book one of this series, so immediately after I chose to read it this one Bad mistake, my dears Because what happened was th [...]

  18. The Unbound takes off where the first book ended Although the novel started off very slow, as the story took off, it elaborated through the impressive plot and writing This novel is far darker than the first installment, very much sinister in certain aspects Mackenzie battles with post traumatic stress disorder After the scandal and aftermath of Owen she starts to drown in her own fear and is unable to distingish between what is real and what is not The world building was so complex and in ever [...]

  19. I don t think I am capable of writing an organized review right now, so I m just going to list some things I liked and disliked Maybe I ll do a proper review for this book and The Archived one day, but right now I am horribly stumped.Things I Liked About This Book Roland view spoiler DOESN T DIE hide spoiler Y all have no idea how happy this makes me, because he s like a father figure to Mac and you know what happens to father figures They get killed And given that Da is dead and Mac s father is [...]

  20. You can t be two people You end up being neither Dark, so dark Beautifully morbid At times downright sinister Perfect This sequeel differs very much from the first book In the atmosphere, the setting, the characters behaviour It is much darker, for instance Mackenzie Bishop is still recovering from the events of the summer when school starts She is haunted by nightmares that seem to be too real to be only nightmares Slowly she loses herself in fear, and there is so much to fear for her And if th [...]

  21. Review also posted at Young Adult HollywoodIt s one of those days that I wish my review would write itself and I hope it would do justice in describing how brilliant The Unbound is You have no idea how I nearly cried when I got the approval to read the E arc of The Unbound I could have sworn the angels were weeping with me.The Unbound follows up where The Archived left off, as Mac starts her junior year at Hyde School She s struggling, trying to get her normal life back, but moving on isn t easy [...]

  22. Can Victoria Schwab be any better of a writer This book was everything I hoped it would be and I just want to live in the world of the Archived.

  23. Question time when dreams and nightmares and life align together, how do you break free, how do you tell real from unreal How do you find the force to move on when you are breaking apart Victoria Schwab writes exquisitely, there s such a vivid world created, so complex and dark and full of mystery and anguish The mental breakdown of the main character was beautifully described and at least in my case it s a wonderful feeling to have to question the sanity of the characters I read about It brings [...]

  26. Mackenzie is dealing post traumatic stress disorder from the fallout with Owen He haunts her dreams and turns them into nightmares When she starts to hurt herself and realizes she could be hurting others, she tries to find out why the string of disappearances are with people she has met before I had a problem with the very slow start It wasn t because I was bored, but because it was the musings of her every day life Her thoughts and actions were stagnant and the plot doesn t move until the 100 p [...]
