WOW is a weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming books that we’re highly anticipating.
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.
Why? Even though I did not like Beauty Queens, I did fall in love with Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle trilogy, so I am willing to check this out. Plus, the time period that it is set in is one of my (many) favorites!
This title is set to be released on September 18th. Add it on Goodreads?
