Libba Bray's New Series!

Thank you, God.

Publishers Weekly announced today the sale of Libba Bray's next series, entitled The Diviners. You can read the article here.

The Diviners will be another historical paranormal (yes!), only less gothic and more jazz. It's set in 1920's New York City, which is a setting definitely not familiar to YA territory and I am squirming in anticipation! I was much less a fan of Going Bovine than I was of her Gemma Doyle trilogy, so I'm happy to see that Bray is moving back toward a more familiar genre.

It'll be a four book series, and the first will come out 2012 from Little, Brown!

Let the ecstatic screaming commence!

OMG OMG OMG! I am in LOVE with the Gemma Doyle Trilogy - I still haven't finished Going Bovine (I've started it like 4 times, but then put it down). I am so happy she's going back to something more familiar. 4 more Libba books! *screams*

Homg, the Roaring 20s?!? That is awesome! We need more books in that time period I tell you!

I can't wait! Thanks for the heads up, this is going on my lists

Gemma's books are amazing, but Going Bovine really fascinated me. It's that one-in-a-million book where the total trippiness totally works.

1920s New York must be popular because Anna Godbersen (author of The Luxe) is setting her next series there too...

yay! this is really exciting. I loved the Gemma Doyle books, and I have no interest in reading Going Bovine, so I'm glad she's sticking to that theme :)
