The Archived: Book Review

The Archived (The Archived, #1)

The Archived 
by Victoria Schwab
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

One thing I shouldn't have let myself do is get myself all Amp'd up with excitement and anticipation before even reading this book. Because of all the rave reviews it got you can see why I would do so.

I ended up giving this read 3 Stars

The first half of the book was slow and kind of repetitive. I was confused by the whole point of "The Archived", why and how the keepers were chosen, how it all came to be....Maybe it was explained but I was just to blahhhhh to even pay attention. In the very beginning I was flipping through pages but really that was just because I was excited. The excitement end soon, real soon.

When the book finally did pick up I've already lost all interest. I also kind of predicted the ending as well which bummed me out. Book 2, The Unbound, is already sitting in my bookcase but I don't think I'll be reading it any time soon.

I really wish I would of enjoyed this more. I must of missed what everyone else loved about it! I'll try Ms. Schwab's Vicious and see how I'll like that one.

Til next time.....


  1. Aw, I'm sorry you didn't love this one. But glad you still managed to enjoy it a little :) Been awhile since I read it, but I enjoyed it. Unsure if I should re-read it before reading book two, though ;p Thank you so much for commenting on my blog. <3

    PSSST. You really, really should remove that code thingy before commenting. I really, really hate those :\ <3

    1. Thanks Carina!
      wait lol what code thingy?!?!

  2. Its so disappointing when we get all excited for something and its something are end up not really enjoying all that much. Better luck next time.

    1. Hey Monique! I found a GREAT one after reading this one, Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes! AMAZING! lol

  3. Awh, shame you didn't enjoy it, especially with all the hypes that's surrounded it. :( I haven't read it yet, so I don't know how boring it is, but I get bored rather quickly if it's not interesting, so it's going down further in my TBR pile, haha.
