The Diviners

The Diviners - Libba Bray Two words:

This. Book.

Anyone who knows me personally also knows about my personal, unhealthy attachment to [a:Libba Bray|2526|Libba Bray|] and her brilliant and amazing books. I remember first reading the Gemma Doyle series and falling in love. For those who don't know, it's [b:A Great and Terrible Beauty|3682|A Great and Terrible Beauty (Gemma Doyle, #1)|Libba Bray||2113193],[b:Rebel Angels|51428|Rebel Angels (Gemma Doyle, #2)|Libba Bray||1696926],[b:The Sweet Far Thing|127459|The Sweet Far Thing (Gemma Doyle, #3)|Libba Bray||3072872]. It might take me months before I read one of her newly published books, but never fear, because I'll get my mitts on them!

So when I finally got my hands on [b:The Diviners|7728889|The Diviners (The Diviners, #1)|Libba Bray||10501517], I went in with skyscraper high expectations.

Boy, did it fill my criteria!

It's 1926 and Evie O'Neill, fulfilling her party girl needs, commits a terrible, scandalous mistake and is sent off to New York City to live with her weird Uncle Will, oner of the Museum Of the Creepy Crawlies (aptly nicknamed).

Well. It was supposed to be a punishment. However, Evie quickly forges a bond of immediate understanding with her uncle and they make a pact that if she behaves herself and doesn't get into trouble, then she can stay in the city with him.

However, when mysterious deaths start littering the streets of New York, Evie realises that she might be well and truly needed.

She's not an ordinary girl. She has powers.


(As if I expected anything less.)

Along with her uncle and a couple of mischevious friends, Evie embarks on a crime-solving-spree that may well and truly change her life forever...

I'm trying my hardest to keep this review spoiler free.

It's definitely a must read and I would recommend this book to everyone. Fast paced and wonderfully written, Bray has once again succeeded in writing a book that comes alive.

I'd also like to point out that there are a couple of super hotties (literally) that have the ability to make you swoon and angry all at the same time.


I realise this review isn't exactly a review, but my fangirling feelings are still running wild.

So have a gif of my face whilst reading the book:
