Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings to spotlight and talk about the yet to be released books we’re excited for. It was originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine under the name Waiting On Wednesday.
In my first Can’t-Wait Wednesday post I’d like to feature one of my most anticipated book releases of the year, which is-
Expected publication: October 10th 2017 by Scholastic Press
Summary from Goodreads:
Saints. Miracles. Family. Romance. Death. Redemption.
The book takes place in the 1960s in Bicho Raro, Colorado and follows the lives of three members of the Soria family—each of whom is searching for their own miracle. There’s Beatriz, who appears to lack feelings but wants to study her mind; Daniel, the “Saint” of Bicho Raro, a miracle worker for everyone but himself; and Joaquin (a.k.a. Diablo Diablo), who runs a pirate radio station at night.
“The Soria family are saints as well, and the miracle they perform for pilgrims to Bicho Raro is as strange as most miracles are: They can make the darkness inside you visible. Once the pilgrims see their inner darkness face to face, it’s up to them to perform another miracle on themselves: banishing the darkness for good. It can be a tricky business to vanquish your inner demons, even once you know what they are, but the Sorias are forbidden to help with this part. They’ve all been told that if a Soria interferes with the second miracle, it will bring out their own darkness, and a saint’s darkness, so the story goes, is a most potent and dangerous thing.” – Maggie Stiefvater, EW interview.
Maggie Stiefvater is one of my favorite authors and I loved all of her books I’ve read so far, including The Raven Cycle which can be found on my favorites shelf as well. I’m certain All the Crooked Saints will also find a place there. I mean, come on, a dark story about miracles and saints and many other stranger things (if the blurb and the cover are anything to go by) with Maggie Stiefvater’s name on it? Sign me in! And the gorgeous cover doesn’t hurt either.
