Giveaway: win an ARC of The Archived by Victoria Schwab

Hey, Cupcakes!
The lovely people at Disney-Hyperion sent me two ARCs of The Archived by Victoria Schwab, so I'm giving one away!!!

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.

The Archived will be published by Disney-Hyperion on 1/22/13

I would bake a layered cupcake. The bottom half would be devils food cake, the top half would be angle food cake, Iced with a vanilla cream cheese icing with chocolate sprinkles. I would call it "Between".

The Cover Contessa said...

Well, I would bake a chocolate cupcake with blue icing the color of the cover. It would be a deep dark chocolate, filled with some kind of dark jelly such as raspberry or blueberry filling. I'm thinking like a chocolate covered piece of fruit. Icing would not be flavored, just after day butter cream icing. I would call it the Library (for what's hidden inside).

It would be a dark chocolate blueberry cupcake with a very light blue fluffy/cloudy whipped frosting. Sprinkled on top would be graham craker crumble with a golden covered dark chocolate key. The cupcake would be called Darkness Unlocked. Thanks for the giveaway =)

It would definitely be a cupcake with different layers, representing the boundary between life and death, and how Mac has to keep what she does at work secret from her friends and family. It would be a dark devil's food cake, with a light blue cream filling to represent the light that we all have to fight for. And on the top would be a key, like on the cover, made of fondant. I'd call it "Layers of Life" (cheesy, I know :P).

Michelle @ In Libris Veritas said...

I think I would make a chocolate cupcake with a white chocolate centers. The icing would be a deep blue with a little chocolate key on top.

Denise Z said...

Okay - I'm going to go with a confetti cupcake batter with rainbow poprocks making up the confetti appearance in the white cake. Each bite will have a different and unique experience of flavor/sizzle. I want blue icing - don't think I know why - to perhaps look like the sky with white icing accents to look like clouds and little silver balls for stars representing the souls.

Hmmm. Dark chocolate cupcake with marbled blue and white frosting and a peanut buyer surprise center for what can't be seen.

Millie said...

Hah! You have asked the wrong person to create a cupcake! ;D Uhh, I think mine would be some blueberry concoction. No, it'd be vanilla batter with whole blueberries in there and the icing would be some of that nice icing. Not the fluffy, cheap kind.

Unknown said...

It would be vanilla cherry flavored and pink and white in color. It would have cute little cherry shaped sprinkles on top! thanks!

For some reasons, lavender and vanilla cupcake jumps into my mind. It seems kind of old fashion, just like the key on the cover of this book!

Victoria Schwab said...

Now I really want a cupcake.

Larissa said...

a dark chocolate cupcake with cherry frosting and filling

Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer said...

My cupcake would be dark chocolate with raspberry filling and old fashioned vanilla butter icing with a fresh raspberry on top. It smells heavenly and is moist. It tastes like heaven. (to me heaven looks like a large library with large comfy chairts)

Lynne said...

this book sounds really good!

I would make a Blue Velvet cake (like a red velvet, only it's dark blue) and then make a verrrry pale blue Cream Cheese icing.
I'd then make a fondant key -painted with edible gold- and call it uhmmm... A Keeper of the Blue Velvet cupcake?

or, maybe we could just call it a 'blue velvet cupcake'? :D

Ok, time for an admission....I don't care for cupcakes. I know, I know, but they just aren't my thing, although I don't hate them or anything. That said, I have watched Cupcake Wars and would like to try some of those offbeat cupcakes they make, like sweet potato or salmon. I would say if a cupcake were made for this purpose, it would be something unconventional like that, something we aren't used to seeing.

Christine said...

I'd have to say a dark chocolate cake with a blueberry filling, and a deep blue cream cheese frosting. I'd call it the Indigo Keeper. Thanks for the giveaway!! :)

Maidenveil said...

I would do a dark chocolate cupcake with a bluish white frosting. If I could make a key-like fondant as topping as well. :)

Emily @ Falling For YA said...

I would make a White Chocolate Cupcake with Cream Cheese Frosting so it looks kind of ghost-ish. Then I would have a blueberry filling to match the cover. And Maybe a little golden key decoration.

Lili said...

I would use food dye to create a dark blue cake and have a light blue/white icing with white sprinkles, but not normally sprinkles, they'd be those round sphere-like ones that are found on cakes. I don't know what it would be called :/ I'm not good with that type of thing! lol

Anonymous said...

I'm not much of a baker but I'd make the cake part black and the frosting a baby blue. Great question though!

New follower. Thanks for the giveaway. I'm dying to get my hands on this book! :D
