And the winner of Best of the Bunch for December 2012 is...


...  The Diviners by Libba Bray!

This is easily one of the best reads of this year. It's beautifully written, with an intricate plot. It's also magical, creepy, fun and romantic. I thought it was fantastic!

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.

What was the best book you read this December? I'd love to know- who gets your bananas? Link up below!
