READ THE SHORT STORY HERE: http://veschwab.wordpress.com/2015/01...

This just made me miss The Archived. I miss Mackenzie. I miss Wesley. I miss Roland. I just miss this world and it's fantastic characters.
I was so happy we got this little snippet where we focus on Wesley. He's such a unique character and HIS NAME IS REVEALED. HIS. REAL. NAME. IS. REVEALED.

Also can we just talk about how the last line of this story MELTED MY HEART BECAUSE OF FEELS.

I need a 3rd book and I need it ASAP. I'm not

YES I AM SO HAPPY THAT THIS WAS AVAILABLE! After reading the Unbound, I started researching about the possibilities of getting a third book in the series. And it Victoria Schwab says that she has plotted and planned out the third book and it might come out this year. But she doesn't know which type of format the book might come in but I really hope it comes out soon.

Have you ever went through the phase where you are in love with a book and don't wanna read anything else other then the book. A

2.5 stars

Really short story from Wesley's POV. It was a decent enough read considering how much I hated Wesley turning into a typical slutty-flirty-cocky-secretive YA love interest in the second book. I still wasn't much of a Wesley fan in this, he was a bit too angsty for my liking but I guess it was nice getting a little more insight into his character, and his interaction with Mackenzie at the end was quite funny and cute.

I love Wesley. I love Mac. I love the Archive. I love Victoria Schwab. I wish this series would never end. :')
She doesn’t just smile, she starts laughing, and I want to be angry but god, it’s the most beautiful sound in the world, even better than that storm going inside her head. I would slay monsters and run through fire and jump off cliffs just to hear that sound.

*high pitched screaming*

(oh, and I also love Wesley's name LOL)

“I’m glad you told me,” she says, breathlessly.
"I didn’t tell you,” I point out.
"Well I’m glad I found out.”
"Why’s that?”
"Because now I won’t laugh when we become Crew.”
I go still. Not because I don’t want to hear those words. But because I do. I want them to be true.
"Do you mean it?” I ask, rolling gingerly to face her.
She mirrors me, rolling onto her side so I’m looking straight into her eyes. “Yes,” she says.
Ican tell I’m smiling like an idiot. I don’t care. “I don’t suppose you have any hidd

Such a cute little short story in the point of view of Wesley also known as Guyliner. Loved seeing his thoughts and how he sees Mackenzie. So cute! Did I mention we also get to find out what his REAL name is?

This was the perfect epilogue for The Archive series. I loved it and I finally got to see the much awaited ´´happy end´´ to Mac and Wesley´s relationship.

Leave the Window Open is a fun little bonus stories for fans of The Archived series. It takes place immediately after the second book and gives the reader an insight into Wesley’s mind. It was a fun change, one I appreciated after coming to love him so much in the second book. Plus, it answers the question that everyone had.

While not a necessity, this is a nice addition for fans who want a little more.

How do I even begin to describe what I just read? I just can't. There are no words for it.

It's not a secret that The Archived Series/Trilogy (gosh I don't even know how many books there will be I feel terrible) is one of my favourites, because of the plot and the characters. It's such an unique story, and Victoria Schwab is just awesome. And it's not a secret that Wesley Ayers is really important to me, I just love him so much.
So it was really special to me to read from his P.O.V., because as mu

this little piece of what The Returned could be, just makes my heart happy and melt inside.
I love this short story and I hope and pray that Ms Schwab is secretly writing The Returned right now and will release it ASAP.

“Mac,” I start, but it’s too late. She doesn’t just smile, she starts laughing, and I want to be angry but god, it’s the most beautiful sound in the world, even better than that storm going inside her head. I would slay monsters and run through fire and jump off cliffs just to hear that sound. Which is why it takes all my strength to stifle it, and press my hand over her mouth. The laugh becomes a muffled chuckle in her chest. And then her fingers

Victoria is the product of a British mother, a Beverly Hills father, and a southern upbringing. Because of this, she has been known to say "tom-ah-toes," "like," and "y'all."

She also tells stories.

She loves fairy tales, and folklore, and stories that make her wonder if the world is really as it seems.
