I am back with one of my original features inspired by Lila @ The Bookkeeper’s Secret and Reg @ She Latitude to put together outfits inspired by book covers.Usually I pick the cover based on my favorite books (old and new), under-hyped books that I want to feature a bit more on my blog or just regular beautiful covers.
SO let’s get started!

You should all know how much I love Victoria Schwab by now. If you don’t, then you’re definitely new to my blog so hello! I love Victoria Schwab. With every new book I read from her extensive library, I fall a little more in love with her writing and storytelling. I think she’s one of those authors that is always pushing boundaries and seeing outside the box and it’s amazing!
Fun fact: This is the first book that I read with my friends Abby and Gervan in our Mom Book Club. This is the one that started it all and it holds a very special place in my heart.
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. Da first brought Mackenzie Bishop here four years ago, when she was twelve years old, frightened but determined to prove herself. Now Da is dead, and Mac has grown into what he once was: a ruthless Keeper, tasked with stopping often-violent Histories from waking up and getting out. Because of her job, she lies to the people she loves, and she knows fear for what it is: a useful tool for staying alive.
Being a Keeper isn’t just dangerous-it’s a constant reminder of those Mac has lost. Da’s death was hard enough, but now that her little brother is gone too, Mac starts to wonder about the boundary between living and dying, sleeping and waking. In the Archive, the dead must never be disturbed. And yet, someone is deliberately altering Histories, erasing essential chapters. Unless Mac can piece together what remains, the Archive itself might crumble and fall.
In this haunting, richly imagined novel, Victoria Schwab reveals the thin lines between past and present, love and pain, trust and deceit, unbearable loss and hardwon redemption.
So that’s it for this post! Let me know what you think of the look and if you’ve read this book. I would love to know if you have any other recs on books about immigration, specially fiction ones. Thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you on my next post!
