"Sometimes you need to become lost in a book to be found." -Savannah Preston

No truer words have ever been spoken and this was on amazing adventure that I will not forget anytime soon!!

The characters were remarkable. The story between Eoin and Savannah was breathtakingly beautiful. I felt a real connection with these two characters and the feelers in this story......Gosh....had me thinking and feeling as if I was part of the story. Th

I had a really fun time reading this novel! It was a light, refreshing, well-paced read about time travel and history with a little bit of adventure and a dash of romance.

I could really relate to Savannah, as we are both the awkward, don't-fit-in-this-time bookworms. I am a sucker for characters who love books so this was already a book off to a great start. Her character arc was well placed. The theme of her finding herself was adamant and well placed for a YA/NA novel. I especially loved the l

I absolutely fell in love with this story. I mean who wouldn't want to travel into books and learn fascinating history. This story is absolutely epic. Scotland is a recent favorite setting so this book is perfect. With all the descriptions in this book, I felt like I was already there. I felt like I was there with the characters every moment.

The characters in this book were completely and utterly charming. I fell in love with them instantly. I love how it was a rough first meeting but then chem

At 40% through this is a DNF. I really wanted to like this one, but just couldn't deal with the over drama and other things that just didn't work for me (including some major info dumping and being told instead of shown). I think this author has some great potential and maybe others won't have the same issues, but definitely not for me. ...more

The bagpipes of Scotland are calling to me!!! Christy Sloat did not disappoint in the slightest with her second installment in The Librarian Chronicles. She introduced us to a new librarian, Savannah, who develops into a true young lady during this story, not just a Librarian. Savannah feels lost in this world, as many of us can relate to...not quite feeling like we fit in. Until she not only visits the beautiful fields of Scotland, but runs into a brusk, feisty, tall, and muscular Scottish man, ...more

Christy Sloat does it again! In this story our Heroine Savannah Preston is time traveling investigating The history of the a Walsh clan with the help of her best friend and fashionista Jessa. Christy takes us on an amazing trip to Scotland where Savannah must record history while butting heads with Eoin who is,let me say, just the most broguish character I have read. The story is a real page turner. It was so amazingly well written that My eyes devoured it in 3 hours! A phenomenal book that suck ...more

I loved this book! There is nothing I like more than getting lost in a story and reading Savannah and Eoin's story felt like I was going through it right along beside them!

I love Ms. Sloat's works and her stories are ones you can get lost in.

This series is whimsical, imaginative and fun. You just get lost in the travel and story the characters bring you to. In this one we have Savannah who is lost. She is a Librarian like her grandmother but she doesn’t really know where she belongs. She only is focused on he goal of being the best Librarian possible. She doesn’t have much self esteem and confidence outside of the world of books and preserving the history of the past.

This time she is preserving Sir Malcolm Walsh. They are trying to

Christy Sloat is one of my favorite authors. I have read and loved everything she has written. That being said, The Archivist is hands down her best work to date. The story is full of whimsy and charm. The writing is almost lyrical and is a pure delight to read. I felt such a connection to Savannah. She's not your typical heroine and I love that about her. She reminds me so much of myself when I was in college and I think other readers will feel that way as well. Medieval Scotland, with it's hau ...more

I like the idea of what the Librarians do and why, but that’s not what either book in the series is about.

Like the first book, this is about a young lady going back in time and falling in love...history be damned. If you are looking for a romantic book (and can look past more than a few editing errors) then these books might be what you are looking for. If, however, you crave something a bit deeper, keep looking. It’s doubtful you’ll find it here.
Not as good as the first book, but still an enjoyable read.

This series has everything a book lover who wants to get lost between the pages of a book could want.  The fact that our characters can travel in books and learn about history is an amazing concept.  I really get lost in both this one and the previous book in the series. It a very vividly told story that sets the landscape of Scotland and our worlds in a perfect balance.  Christy sloat is a talented author who does not disappoint.

The Archivist is everything you could want out of truly great story. Romance, friendship, history, time travel, heart pounding action, and twists and turns that will keep you guessing and leave your jaw hanging in surprise!
Christy Sloat has given us another beautifully written tale about a time traveling Librarian who is a heroin you can't help but love and root for. Savannah is a wonderful character, strong and full of sass, yet unsure and broken in her own way. Eoin is a hunky yet sweet old Sc

I want to start off by saying that I did try read this book once before. I did put it down due to personal reasons. . That had nothing to do with the book. But I am glad that I decided to pick this book up again. I really enjoyed reading it and getting back into the world of traveling librarian. And just like the first one I was not disappointed at all. Now this book does follow a different librarian. Which I didn't mind getting to know a new characters. Savannah is my favorite and feel her at t ...more

Mrs. Sloat you've done it again. 14 times now you have pulled at my heart strings as you whisked me away to the land you have chosen to write about. You are an enchantress with words. You cast a spell over me with them. I could see the Bonnie hills of Scotland, hear the bagpipes and waterfall, and feel the wind in my face as I rode atop the horse with Savannah. I have fallen in love with one of your characters yet again, this time Eoin. They're so relatable. I could relate to everything Savannah ...more

I really enjoyed this book! I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. It is the second book in a series of time travel romance. It can also act as a standalone read.

I read the first one in the series and struggled to connect with the characters and the story. The Archivist changed that and I am so glad I gave this book a chance! I loved the main characters and their story. Savannah is a librarian whose job is to time travel in history to record events related to Sir

So this sequel follows Savannah who is also one of the Bailie women and she has the bracelet as her tether. She ends up in Medieval Scotland and has a bit of an adventure and falls in love with an unexpected man.

This story flowed so nicely and I loved every second of it. The last 3 chapters had me a giggly squeeing mess because everything was coming up aces for Savannah and I couldn't be happier for her. The time travel like the first book flowed perfectly and there was no jumping all awkwardly

To stay or not to stay ?

I have to admit, this book was better than the first. Now mind you they can read as standalones. This one was set in Scotland during the time when the English were trying to take control and rule Scotland. Savannah is a Librarian, able to travel back in time and record history. At one point she travels as loses the item that would keep her tethered to her own time. Now she's unsure if she can get home at all. with some help from unlikely Highlander, she finds her item and

~I was given a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review~

There were some good things in this book. I loved the overall premise and story but the writing felt a little rushed to me and the characters didn’t feel fully developed. Also, the conversations between Savannah and her best friend, Jessa felt a little juvenile to me. So, while I was able to stay interested enough to finish it, I didn’t love it. I will say though, just because I didn’t love it doesn’t mean others won’t.

Exciting and so cute!

I liked this one better then The Librarian. I like Savannah, but I dint like the way Jessa is described. Something just feels off about her.
Their relationship fells natural and electric. But I don't get why Sav didn't get a punishment or something because she broke the rules? But I also get why not, who is gonna travel instead... More work. Anyway, it was a good book, looking forward to read The Bibliophile.
Free Kindle e-book in exchange for an honest review as part of the Indie June author month.

Savannah is part of the secret society called The Librarians, who travel through time to record history. All women of Bailey family. On one of her assignments, to meet the famous Sir Malcolm Walsh, Savannah travels to 14th century Scotland.

The Archivist by Christy Sloat shows us what happens when you lose the only tether you have with your timeline.

This is my favourite book from the Librarian Chronicles se

Wow!!! I thought I loved book 1 The Librarian. This book has stolen my heart. Scotland?! Time travel?! Sign me up!! It was beautiful. It was sad. It was relatable. I love that Savannah is not a perfect, tiny girl. She has issues and curves, and it makes sense for the time she travels to. She not only develops mentally, but also becomes more comfortable in her skin.
The plot twist was great! Didn’t see that coming at all!
And the epilogue 🥰🥰🥰

Blending history with the future

This is book two of the series, but each book can stand alone. You get a glimpse of the past and sometimes it returns to the present.. This really will show how love conquers all. Follow the Bailey women through history as the record it for the future.

I'm so glad I discovered Christy Sloat!
The Archivist is very good. I enjoyed it just as much as The Librarian.
Savanah, Eoin and Scotland! Christy brought them to life.
I highly recommend this series!
