Best Series Blog Hop and Giveaway


best-series_blog-hop

When I signed up for this awesome hop hosted by Cuddlebuggery, my mind spun with possibilities. Do you know how hard it is for me to pick JUST ONE series as my favorite series? SO HARD. I considered Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi,  The Girl of Fire and Thorns series by Rae Carson, the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer, the Song of the Lioness by Tamora Pierce, and dozens other, because the world is too vast for just one favorites, you know? I don't have favorites. I don't have bests. I have a million series I love just for being themselves.

But in the end, I chose a series I love that deserves a hundred times more recognition for its awesomeness.



The Archived by Victoria Schwab!

The Archived (The Archived, #1)13638131

Why it rocks:

TEH FEELS

In the first book, Mac, our heroine, is dealing with grief and loneliness and the messy bits about being someone who frequently tussles with the dead. it's a tough life for a teenage girl, and Mac's got a tough exterior.

TEH WRITING

This atmosphere of this book is rich, moody, and dark, just like the covers. The prose is gorgeous and lyrical even when it carves your heart out with it's razor edges.

TEH WESLEY

WESLEY AYERS IS PERFECT. It's just a fact, really.

TEH CONCEPT

OMG. My friend Gaby described this book as being, "An episode of Doctor Who written by Neil Gaiman", and accurate statement is accurate.

TEH COVERS

You want them. You know you do. Just look at them. In person they are velvety and gorgeous and... yeah. You want them

And you can win them! OPEN INTERNATIONALLY

  49. I read a few chapter samples of The Archived when it was still on netgalley and it was amazing! Never got around to buying it though so this is a great chance to start rereading it thoroughly.

    I'm participating in the blog hop too, and I chose His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman and Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas as the best series' that influenced me when I was reading in high school. :)
