Waiting on Wednesday: The Diviners by Libba Bray

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s can’t wait to read selection is
The Diviners by Libba Bray.
Publication Date: September 18th 2012


The Diviners - Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
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.

Synopsis from Goodreads.com
 
I will admit that not only had the cover much to do with me choosing this book for WoW this week, but the use of language had me laughing already while reading the synospis. So how could I not choose it? ;) A murder mystery, combined with a witty, secret power whielding main character. How intriguing!

Let's hear what you are waiting on this week.

I am DYING to read this one. I featured it before on my WOW. September seems so far away. I bet you'd like Ruta Sepetys.
