Waiting on Wednesday (56)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where book bloggers devote a post to an upcoming release they are particularly looking forward to.


THIS WEEK'S PICK:
THE DIVINERS BY LIBBA BRAY

Evie O'Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City--and she is pos-i-toot-ly thrilled. New York is the city of speakeasies, shopping, and movie palaces! Soon enough, Evie is running with glamorous Ziegfield girls and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is Evie has to live with her Uncle Will, curator of The Museum of American Folklore, Superstition, and the Occult--also known as "The Museum of the Creepy Crawlies."

When a rash of occult-based murders comes to light, Evie and her uncle are right in the thick of the investigation. And through it all, Evie has a secret: a mysterious power that could help catch the killer--if he doesn't catch her first.


I'll admit right now that the only book by Libba Bray that I've read is Beauty Queens despite owning her Gemma Doyle trilogy. Regardless of that, The Diviners sounds like a really interesting read and who doesn't love a paranormal mixed with historical fiction? I can't wait to be able to read this one.

The Diviners by Libba Bray will be published September 18, 2012 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.

  1. I loved the Gemma Doyle Series, but I was disappointed in Beauty Queens. I can't wait for The Diviners.
