It has been a year of change since Gemma Doyle arrived at the foreboding Spence Academy. And that makes me really disappointed. I also loved the insane, bizarre adventure of Going Bovine.

One of them, Memphis, is very likable. Amber eyes and dark brows. It’s after the war but before the depression. I had way too high expectations for this We are the Diviners.

Just a bunch of chess pieces moved about by unseen hands in a universe bored with itself. There’s Eviea flapper learning to grow up in New York City.

The Diviners : Libba Bray :

But the thing about Evie is that she grows on you. After battling a supernatural sleeping sickness that early claimed two of their own, the Diviners have had enough of lies. But something in me really wanted to finish this book, whether I ended up loving it or hating it, so I finally decided to sit somewhere quiet and immerse myself in this story a month ago.

I’ve only ever read the Gemma Doyle trilogy before this, but through that reading and seeing reviews for her other books, I think this is a pattern in Ms. Octavia bowed her head.

I am just blabbing and gushing now so I’m going to stop before I start drooling, but this book is a definite addition to my all time favourites. I have a strong suspicion she read a reference guide to using slang during the Flapper era and made it her personal goal to use as much speakeasy language as possible in every single spoken sentence. The murder mysteries were such an interesting plot point, they were done magnificently. Description A young woman discovers her mysterious powers could help catch a killer in the first book of The Diviners series–a stunning supernatural historical mystery set in s New York City, from Printz Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Libba Bray.


She just never behaves like a relatable character, or is anything more for me than a 20s stereotype who keeps spouting annoying catchphrases and obsessing over the New York social scene.

The Diviners

That would mean crazy and brutally interesting family meetings. I think, though, what I most want to say is that Libba Bray brings all of these things together into one.

Again, that’s not all the creep you’d get here. The unexplained and undefined. Draft it out and let me know when you are done. Characters here lack subtlety, dimensionality and interest.

Again, I don’t really care anymore, but I do think it’s a little brqy that she’s done that in multiple books.

BUTgal got me liking her more and more throughout the book. Vojsk rated it liked it.

Will wanted her to go inside. I also loved how scary and gory this book was. I wish I had a friend like this. I was already used to the slang and was glad that Mr. I already know this will be a favourite series! She was full of life and wanted to experience everything she could. A bit on the bgay side, but for the most part I really enjoyed this!

The Diviners (The Diviners, #1) by Libba Bray

I joined up with the navy for a bit—till they found out I was only fifteen. Despite the marketing, The Diviners is not a single pov novel – it follows a cast of characters, all with points of view. If you’re in need of something spooky that takes a step into downright scary, this book is for you!

Full with Supernatural and Metaphysics, Amazingly describing the Nightmares and the creepy atmosphere of the time, like The two old creepy ladies at the building, the graveyards, the abounded house, Chinatown and the hostess girl in green eyes.

And not only were the characters some of the most memorable, but the mystery in the air had me on the edge for nearly the whole book. And these aren’t crimes of passion. We see the dead. There were a lot of twists in the story that I didn’t see coming; and yeah, some of them were a little bizarre, but I was willing to go along with them. And Jerichoa very grumpy and very guarded angel. This means do not attack me, please.

I couldn’t sense the flavor of their relationships, so to speak, meaning the specific individual friendships between characters.
