With getting back into the book community comes participating in weekly events! We’re so excited to start getting involved in Waiting on Wednesday, a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that book bloggers are eagerly anticipating.
For our first ever pick, we’re choosing Before the Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray, the third book in The Diviners series! This has been one of our favorite series for a long time, despite the long wait for a sequel, and anything Libba Bray writes is glorious. She’s also just one of the kindest, funniest people out there. And, truly, these books just keep getting better and better. If you haven’t read this series yet, you’re seriously missing out. We’re looking forward to October 3rd and all the wicked things in store!
Synopsis: After battling a sleeping sickness, The Diviners are up against a group of new and malevolent foes–ghosts! Out in Ward’s Island sits a mental hospital full of lost souls from people long forgotten. Ghosts who have unusual and dangerous ties to the Man in the Stovepipe Hat also known as the King of Crows.
With terrible accounts of murder and possession flooding in from all over New York City, the Diviners must band together and brave the ghosts haunting the asylum to bring down the King of Crows.
