Waiting on Wednesday: The Diviners by Libba Bray

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Title: The Diviners
Author: Libba Bray
Pub Date: September 18, 2012

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 excited for this book because I love Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle series and I've been hankering for her to write another historical fiction series. So hooray! September is a long way away.
