Waiting on Wednesday (19): The Diviners by Libba Bray



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.

I'm moving to Long Island for college in a few weeks, and I'll  be right outside New York City. I know that there are a ton of YA books out there set in the Big Apple, but so many of them are realistic fiction. That's all fine and dandy, but you can give me paranormal fiction any day!  This book sounds like the perfect way to start a new chapter in my life!

  7. I've been debating whether to read this one or not, but it does sound really good so I'll probably give it a go. It's a shame I didn't like the first book by Libba that I read.
