If I had actually gone to BEA this year (sorry, didn't post that I changed my mind about going! No money!) , this would have been one the titles that I would have waited in line for. Libba Bray is, by far, one of my favorite Young Adult authors. I absolutely adored her Great and Terrible Beauty Trilogy.

The Diviners is due out in September and when I noticed a copy on our ARC shelf at work, I squealed. I did. And gasped a little.

I have been reading it every chance I can get. It is shaping up to be just as good as her others. 

Here's a little description 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.

Score for me!!!

Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!

That's awesome! Man I miss working in a bookstore, lol. So many perks. Can't wait to see what you think!

Super exciting. I thought you didn't go but then assumed you was commenting while there :-)

I considered the series in the past but then said maybe not, I should try it as I loved Michelle Zink's, Prophecy of the Sisters and was told it was similar.

Great ARC for you.

Aw shucks on the inability to attend....TOTALLY understand though (same sitch without the switch). As for the ARC score, *high five*! Haven't read her work as of yet, but it definitely sounds good. Might have to keep an eye out for it. Happy reading!
