Waiting on Wednesday: All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Today we are waiting for All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater!

New release fresh out the printer!

Publication date: October 10th, 2017
Publisher: 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.

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.

Not every book has been my taste but I've pretty much liked most of Maggie's books so I'm excited to see what she did with this one! I'm a little bit reticent because I see Spanish (Mexican most likely) and if the family is Mexican or mixed... well, you better do it right. Let's hope it's done right. Anyway, I'm not sure if this is a standalone but my favorite book by her is The Scorpio Races yay I want to see if this one is just as good.

Oh, what do you think of the cover? at first I thought it was somehow related to The Raven Cycle because of all the colors and the bird! I don't know what the roses and the owl represent but they misled me a bit xD

Are you excited about All the Crooked Saints?
