{Blog Tour} The Unbound by Victoria Schwab {Interview}

**Man I love that cover. Isn't awesome? Well today I have a wonderful treat for all of you because today I have a fun and quirky interview with the lovely author of this book and a spotlight of this book! So stop by and check it all out.


Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today and allowing me to pester you with totally random questions Victoria. I am super excited to have you here.

--Thank you so much for having me!

Ready for some random questions? Ready or not….here goes.

--My body is ready.

1)      If you could be any mystical creature what would you be and why?

--I know I should say narwhal, since I’m constantly talking up how awesome they are, but I am actually not a huge fan of the ocean, so I’m going to go with centaur. Because CENTAUR.

2) Help me settle the age old debate, waffles or pancakes? Why?

--Crepes. Because they are an excuse to roll nutella and bananas INTO A BURRITO.

**Yum, Nutella! That is my favorite thing ever!

3)      Which socks are better blue or red? Please explain your reasoning.

--Blue. Because it is my favorite color and therefore when I see it I have an automatically warm and fuzzy response, which would then translate into an ACTUAL warm and fuzzy response. On my feet.

4)      Paperback or ebooks? Why?

--Paperbacks (or hardcovers). Never ebooks. I have to be able to hold the book. To smell it. To physically touch and turn the pages. It’s a large part of my experience and it doesn’t translate to digital consumption. Nothing sinks in for me unless it’s there in paper and ink.

5)      You are flying through the air and see a forest glimmering in the distance. There are shouts of help coming from below. A) How are you flying? B) Do you stop to see who is crying for help? C) If you stopped to help, describe the scene.

--I am on my Nimbus 2000.
--I stop, but with a healthy degree of skepticism and a drawn wand because the forest is full of dark things.
--I was totally right, and turns out to be a trap set by death eaters and I only narrowly escape. But it’s worth it because think of the story I’ll be able to tell.

**Lol... I take it you are a Harry Potter fan?! Man I love this answer!!!!

~The Book~

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.

  1. Awesome interview and very cool questions (although Victoria Schwab good make a good interview out of the basic interview questions). Author interviews should be like this though, fun and quirky, because I am ten times more invested in a book if I personally like an author. Of course, I went to a signing for this book, and for Vicious, so Schwab won me over and enticed me to the dark side a long time ago. ;)

    1. Thank you, I had a lot of fun with this one. It is great to get the feeling of getting to know an author. It would definitely be cool to meet Victoria Schwab in person! That is awesome that you got that chance.

  2. Haha, what a fun interview! Not sure I'd want to be a centaur, but crepes are great! I loved your questions -- and your blog is ADORABLE!! :D

    1. Lol... Thanks Kelly. Not sure I would be a centaur either. And the truth is I've never had a crepe, but I have had me some Nutella and I could eat that stuff all day!

      Glad you liked the blog. Thanks for stopping by!
