Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Wednesday is always an easy post day for me! There is never a shortage of upcoming books that I’m dying to get my hands on, and this week is no exception.
The Diviners by Libba Bray. Release date: September 18 2012. Wow, I love Libba Bray! She is über-creative and a fantastic writer too! And check out the cover of her new book. It takes place in New York City in the 1920’s, and I think the cover does a great job of evoking the time period and subject matter of the book. Here’s what Goodreads says:
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.
Sounds like fun! I’d love to hear what everyone else is waiting on!
