The Diviners (The Diviners, #1) by Libba Bray | An amazing cast of characters & entertaining roaring twenties!

Oh, man! «The Diviners» was such a roller coaster of emotions! 

The beginning of the book wasn’t as exciting as I hoped it would be, which translated into me starting this book twice. For the second time as I passed that first chapter (prologue) about the party and spirit summoning, I met Evie and fell in love with her character. The book just kept getting better and better from there. However, by the end, I was started to feel tired of reading the same story and the last 100 pages took me a couple of days to finish.

When it comes to Paranormal Romances, I am always slightly apprehensive because (1) they can be too “honey sweet” for my taste and (2) I end up wanting more paranormal and less romance.

What do you know about Norse mythology? Greek mythology is very popular among book writers, the most notable example would be the Persy Jackson series, that has a sizable audience (I still haven’t read any book in the series and I am very ashamed to admit it, but I eventually will get there, promise!).

Runes series by Ednah Walters is a YA paranormal tales built in a modern world with connection to Norse mythology. Odin, Freya, Loki, Norns – these were the names I’ve heard before and even knew some myths around or at least what they represented, it was entertaining seeing how it all got connected and developed with our main characters.
