The Diviners, by Libba Bray

lighthearted mysterious medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? No


I'm someone who doesnt enjoy YA books but read this bc a coworker asked me to. I will say that I ended up kinda liking it at the very end. I hate the main character and found her annoying and selfish. But really enjoyed the side characters. Especially Memphis and Theda! 
As a high fantasy lover, I wasnt crazy about the time period it's based in but the audio book narrator makes the slang really fun. I found myself wishing the book had a darker feel with more heavy reasons for the murdering but I think ya books in general tend to be a lil superficial when it comes to plot.
