Waiting on Wednesday: All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm looking forward to...


All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Publication Date: October 10th, 2017
Pages: 320

Summary (from Goodreads):

Here is a thing everyone wants:
A miracle.

Here is a thing everyone fears:
What it takes to get one.


Any visitor to Bicho Raro, Colorado is likely to find a landscape of dark saints, forbidden love, scientific dreams, miracle-mad owls, estranged affections, one or two orphans, and a sky full of watchful desert stars.

At the heart of this place you will find the Soria family, who all have the ability to perform unusual miracles. And at the heart of this family are three cousins longing to change its future: Beatriz, the girl without feelings, who wants only to be free to examine her thoughts; Daniel, the Saint of Bicho Raro, who performs miracles for everyone but himself; and Joaquin, who spends his nights running a renegade radio station under the name Diablo Diablo.

They are all looking for a miracle. But the miracles of Bicho Raro are never quite what you expect.

Maggie Stiefvater has been called “a master storyteller” by USA Today and “wildly imaginative” by Entertainment Weekly. Now, with All the Crooked Saints, she gives us the extraordinary story of an extraordinary family, a masterful tale of love, fear, darkness, and redemption.

After finally reading The Raven Boys series (and absolutely ADORING it), I am so excited for this! It doesn't really sound like something I would normally read, but neither did The Raven Boys so I'm hopeful that this will end up being an unusual favorite for me.

What books are you looking forward to this week?
