The Diviners by Libba Bray
Synopsis: (from Goodreads)
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.
Why I want it:
After reading The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald, I’m so curious and interest how the 1920’s New York look like. The story of The Diviners is set in the 1920’s of New York which is very appealing to me. I heard a lot of great things about the writer, Libba Bray and the excitement which brings along by this book.
