Book Hangovers

I put down the bottle and picked up a book. Reading saved my life! I went from booze hangovers to book hangovers and I am the happiest I've ever been! 

Review: The Archived by Victoria Schwab

The Archived - Victoria Schwab
 
Read from February 12 to 18, 2014

 

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 flying through pages, but really, that was just because I was excited. The excitement ended 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.
