Can't Wait Wednesday #19 - All The Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa @ Wishful Endings and spotlights the books we are excited about and have yet to read. This meme is based on Waiting on Wednesday which is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine.

I can't wait for...
All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

Expected Publication: October 10, 2017
by Scholastic Press

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. 

If I didn't know who Maggie was, or that her books are always so unique, I probably wouldn't be too interested in this, to be honest. It does have a certain mystery surrounding it but if I was to put nearly any other author's name to this synopsis I'd just be 'meh' about it. But this is Maggie Stiefvater. And she's brilliant and I know that she does amazing things and has amazing ideas and that alone makes me super psyched for this. 


  1. I find myself debating about this one! I loved Maggie's Shiver series but never got into her last one. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it!

    Here's my WoW
