All the Crooked Saints

Maggie Stiefvater
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.

Okay I liked the idea of the story, but that was about it.

I just don't enjoy omnipresent narrators who speak as though they are the child of [a:Lemony Snicket|36746|Lemony Snicket|] and [b:Welcome to Night Vale|23129410|Welcome to Night Vale (Night Vale, #1)|Joseph Fink||42677282]. The book was too slow for me and too much extraneous, irrelevant detail.

Sorry Maggie, you just didn't win me over this time.

Full review to come.

EDIT: Sorry guys, I honestly cbf writing another review for this book bc I just didn't enjoy it. BUT you can check out my full review over at my blog!href>
