#FridayReads: The Diviners by Libba Bray

This actually went up yesterday on the youtubes and Facebook and whatnot, but I didn't have a chance to share it here with you until, well, now. (Obvs.)

So here you go, here's my #FridayReads for this week, The Diviners, by Libba Bray. I finished it up shortly after recording this, actually, so now I'm moving on to this month's Stack of Five winner, Eve & Adam.
Let me know in the comments what you're planning on reading this weekend!


The Diviners by Libba Bray
Get ItAdd It
Supernatural/Historical, 592 pages
September 18th 2012 from Little, Brown BYR
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.


  1. Lucky Luciano is in this book? I'm a Boardwalk Empire fan, but I'm ashamed to say, I hadn't even realised he was one of the characters based on a real person. I have to read this book.

  2. Don't get too excited, TG. He's just mentioned, he's not really a character. More part of the atmosphere of the time...


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
