Come Meet Wesley Ayers of THE ARCHIVED!

Today on Tangled we are talking about books that release in 2013 that we can't wait to read!! Mine is one I've already read, and tomorrow you can read it too!! To celebrate and tell you a little about the book, have a special guest. We are thrilled to welcome the one and only Wesley Ayers, from Victoria Schwab’s THE ARCHIVED. 

Hellllllllo, Wesley! Let’s get started…

If you were a dish at a Mexican restaurant, what would you be & why?
--Burrito. Lots of different things inside, all wrapped up so you can't see. Looks simple to eat until you try and then it's messy.

Describe yourself in five words or less. 
--Sarcastic guyliner-wearing (guylined? guylinered?) badass. Oh, and tall.

Name one thing you just cannot live without. 
--My ring. Well, I mean, I could live without it, but life wouldn't be nearly so enjoyable with everybody's noise in my head. (Also you totally thought I was going to say Mackenzie, didn't you? Come on I'm not that sappy. Also she would hit me.)

Okay....Boxers or briefs? 

What's your favorite smell?

What was your first impression of Mackenzie when you met?
--Dangerous. I should have known better. Hell, I did know better, but I still let her in.

Where do you think you'll be in 10 years?
--Alive. I hope.

Have you ever had a spiritual/religious/awe-inspiring experience?
--The first time I ever stepped into the Archive. It was so...vast. Infinite. How do you take something infinite, and give it walls? It's a mindtrip, being there, surrounded by so much life. So much death.

What is the grandest romantic gestures you've ever made?
--I told the truth.

What's one trait you have that Mackenzie finds annoying?
--I don't always take everything so seriously. But I mean, I do, it's just, this job will tear you up. You can't really go through life and have a shred of a chance at being happy unless you learn to find the light in it.

What is the one thing you'd never admit your significant does better than you?
--Whoa now. Not significant others. Partners in crime. And she's a better liar. Most of the time, I wish she weren't.

If you could change anything about Mackenzie what would it be?
--I wish she'd smile more. She has a wonderful smile.

If you had a superpower, what would it be and why?
--I already have one ;)

Want more Wesley? (I know I do!) THE ARCHIVED will be in-stores and shipping online TOMORROW! Pre-order your copy on Amazon, at Barnes & Noble, or at your local indie to make sure you don’t have to wait to get your hands on Wesley…I mean, this 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.

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 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 hard-won redemption.
