Blog Tour: Christy Sloat's The Archivist's Drop-Dead Gorgeous and Blinding Cover Reveal

Hi everyone! I have abandoned my blog for a week. Yes, I do feel bad as I have so many book reviews to write for publicists and
authors; however, I had some tests in school that I was nervous for and I was in a great reading mood. Although I
would love to sprout my emotions and the happenings of what has been occurring behind the scenes, I do have something
special to share with each and every one of you readers! Today, Christy Sloat and Rockstar Book Tours are revealing the
cover for The Archivist, which releases May 28, 2018! AH! I cannot wait until this book comes out as the synopsis sounds so
good and the cover is drop-dead gorgeous, which is not the most important thing but it sure does help. Now, it's time to reveal
the cover and enter a fantastic giveaway, which ends March 16th!


The Archivist's official cover is...

See, I told you it is GORGEOUS. Why don't you ever believe me?

(Is it because I am an evil, word-bewitched book blogger who is also a vampire who lives off tea?)

Summary

"With the whimsy of Alice in Wonderland and the romance of Outlander dive back into the next installment in the Librarian
Chronicles."
Savannah Preston has a rare and precious gift: The ability to time travel through books. She, and others who share this unique
ability, are faced with the insurmountable task of preserving history. They are known collectively as The Librarians. While
researching infamous Scottish outlaw Sir Malcolm Wash during the raging conflicts of the 14th Century, Savannah loses the
only thing that tethers her to her own time. She must rely on her knowledge of both the present and the past to survive long
enough to find a way home. Along the way, she enlists the help of a misfit named Eoin. With his guidance, she might just
get home. It’s a risky and dangerous adventure, but then, so is Eoin…
Excerpt

When I first met Jessa at my grandma’s funeral I hated her. Upon my first impression, I walked away thinking she was
pretentious and rude. She wore a pink dress to a funeral. I mean who does that?
Then when I found out she was going to be my protector, I hated her even more. Jessa’s parents were high society and
they were involved with my family in dealings with historical artifacts. They didn’t know my ancestors travelled
through time, but they knew we were important historians and that we preserved facts. My grandma thought Jessa
would be a good match to help me. I thought that she was senile and wrong and that it wasn’t going to work out, but I
was wrong. We learned to like each other and then we became best friends. Turns out my grandma was right.
Jessa was my guide and I need more than just her friendship. While I travel through time she watches over me,
keeping me safe. Jessa is also responsible for making sure my clothing is appropriate for the time frame, while
also assisting me while I chronical what I have seen and what experiences I’ve gone through. She keeps notes
on all of these things in her guide book, which basically makes her invaluable to me and to the work that I do.
In order to travel through time you must have a guide you can trust, and I trust Jessa with my life.
The most important research was kept inside the blank pages of a book. Each mission yielded a new book.
Once that book was full and our mission complete, it was sealed. I’m a librarian but not in the typical sense.
I haven’t earned the proper diploma to get such a title. I, along with many others throughout the world,
preserve the history of some of the most famous historical figures inside the blank pages of each book we
are sent. The Librarians was founded by a famous scientist, Harold Lockhart. Lockhart wrote the formula
for time travel in the only thing he had near him when it was fresh in his brain. That book wasn’t empty, it
happened to be the history of none other than, Abraham Lincoln. After he wrote the formula, he was
whisked away in time and came face to face with Lincoln himself. The talent to travel and record history
was never his intention, but after he realized how wrong historians were about the president, he created
the group of librarians. Lockhart put us in charge of libraries and their books. The sect of librarians
were given their jobs and they went to work straight away.
I myself hope to achieve the goal of working in a library with the official title someday, which is
what I’m studying in school. My intention is to host my own library and help archive important time
periods through my research as well as artifacts, like my grandma did. Like all the women did who came
before her.
All I know about my job before I travel is who I’m to research. Everything else is learned while I’m inside the book, or in other
words, the past.
I’m forbidden to change history by becoming involved in the past or with my target. But I can become friendly with them and
immerse myself in their world. It’s hard not to become part of it. While I’m there I am more than just a girl recording the true
history. I become my character fully and truly; as if I really am who I say I am. I’ve been many different people, travelling five
separate times into five people’s world. And each time I go, I’m nervous. It doesn’t take long to fill the pages the Historical
Society of Libraries sends me. I’m currently one of the youngest on the East Coast. My job is taken extremely serious for I have
wanted to do this for a long time. Now that it’s my job, I feel as if I am living the dream.
How could I not love it? I am a college student full time and on my off days I travel to the past. What is there not to like?
