My Shelf Monday: The Diviners by Libba Bray

The Diviners

Publisher: Little Brown Books


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-tute-ly ecstatic. It’s 1926, and New York is filled with speakeasies, Ziegfeld girls, and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that she has to live with her uncle Will and his unhealthy obsession with the occult.

Evie worries he’ll discover her darkest secret: a supernatural power that has only brought her trouble so far. But when the police find a murdered girl branded with a cryptic symbol and Will is called to the scene, Evie realizes her gift could help catch a serial killer.

As Evie jumps headlong into a dance with a murderer, other stories unfold in the city that never sleeps. A young man named Memphis is caught between two worlds. A chorus girl named Theta is running from her past. A student named Jericho hides a shocking secret. And unknown to all, something dark and evil has awakened.

Where did I get it?

Chapters! It was actually in the Bargain Books section, so it was under $6.00.

Why did I buy it?

Even though it wasn’t originally on my TBR I’d heard a lot of good things about it on booklr, and figured I couldn’t pass up a $6.00 hardcover.

Have I Read It?

Yes ||| No

Why haven’t I read it?

Like a lot of the books I haven’t read, I just never got around to it. Other, newer books came in, and I got more excited for these other books. I have, however, used The Diviners in some photography because the naked cover is so pretty.

Where is it on my TBR?

Somewhere in the middle – I don’t want to read it super soon, but after re-reading the description to write this post it’s definitely a book I would like to give a try eventually. Although I might be including it in my soon-to-be unhaul, if only because Lair of Dreams won’t match. (Yes, I’m that person, a cover snob.) I figure I can always borrow it from the library, which I’ve been meaning to make better use of anyway.


My Shelf Monday is a weekly post on my blog in which I discuss one of the books/series that I own. It’s a way to catalogue my book collection, and it also acts as a slow, miniature tour of my shelves.
