Crooked Saints

All the Crooked Saints
by Maggie Stiefvater
(Release Date: October 10, 2017)

About the Book:
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

Why I’m dying to read this:

I’m a pretty big fan of Maggie Stiefvater’s writing.  I even like her blog posts, instagram, and twitter feed.  I think she’s a phenomenal author, and that’s the main reason why I’m so excited about this book.  It seems like she only gets better.  I also feel an extra interest about All The Crooked Saints because of the controversy.  I’ve never believed that an author is limited in their believability based on their own ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation.  Being an own-voice author does bring more credibility, but it’s not the only option for writing diverse.  I’d like to believe that Maggie did her due diligence and I’m willing to give her a shot with an open mind.

About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.

  2. Beware Of The Reader

    Thank you for mentioning this one Wendy! I’m a fan of Maggie’s writign but it’s been a long time since I’ve read one of her books and I did not know of this one. Now I have one more book to add on my TBR


  3. I am such a fan of Stiefvater’s storytelling, and have been hearing some good things about this one. Stiefvater is such an intelligent woman, who comes off as being a really decent person, who cares about people. I couldn’t imagine that she would write about something real-world without researching it throughly.


  4. I’ve heard a lot about Maggie Stiefvater’s books in the past few months. I haven’t read any of her work myself, but I trust your judgment so I might have to check her out. I hope you enjoy it when you get around to reading it! ❤


  5. I recently won an ARC of this one and can’t wait to read it later this month. I’ve seen some of the comments you’re referring to but, like you, I plan to go in with an open mind. I just can’t see judging a book before I’ve even read it.
