That feeling when you're reading a book and maybe it's a love scene, or maybe it's a character learning something about him or herself, or maybe it's something that you've always thought but never knew anyone else thought or felt that way too, and your whole body grows warm and tingly and there are tears in your eyes... that. That's why I read. To feel. To connect. To understand. To have my whole body warmed while I forget to breathe.

Uhhh... I didn't really need this book... but it was on sale... I couldn't just leave it there, shivering on the wastelands of the buy one get one half price table. It now has a loving home and has been freed from ugly stickers. I am an angel.

I didn’t know I needed a miracle
But then I read Maggie Stiefvater’s book, and it all makes sense.
I have loved books since I first learned to read. I remember that time, in kindergarten, picking through the big books and feeling so very accomplished. And from there my love affair grew. Stories have always been my escape, even when I didn’t realize that’s what they were. I have always and will always love books for their “uniquely portable magic” and Steven King once pointed out.
And tonight, again, I am struck by just how potent this magic can be.
I did not know what to expect when I opened “All The Crooked Saints.” I knew only that I adore the way Maggie makes words feel new again. I am willing to embark upon an unknown journey with her because, so far, she has not lead me too far astray. (By that I mean she’s taken me to a helluva lot of strange places, but gently.) I opened this book hoping for another journey.
But...oh...I got so much more.
I have been struggling inside my head for such a very long time I do not know what it feels like not to struggle. I have taken myself for granted for such a very long time that I no longer believe in any of my worth or value. And, recently, I have been fighting to “fix” all of that. It is not easy to learn to love one’s self. When it has been taken as truth that I am worthless and wanting for so long, simply acknowledging the goodness I possess is not nearly enough to mean I believe it. It is a slow, painful, heartbreaking process.
And after a day of particular struggle, I found myself reading of miracles and happiness and I knew this book was meant for this moment.

Maggie Stiefvater, I don’t know if you’ll ever read this. And I don’t know why you write your books. But I do know that this book, in this moment of my life, has resonated in ways I didn’t know I needed. I think I can guess at how a writer can know the thoughts and struggles and feelings of others (because aren’t we all made of the same tangles, just in different knots?). But I want to let you know that I love this book and I have been loved by this book. Thank you for writing it. Thank you for sharing it. Thank you. @maggie-stiefvater

Stories you read when you're the right age never quite leave you. You may forget who wrote them or what the story was called. Sometimes you'll forget precisely what happened, but if a story touches you it will stay with you, haunting the places in your mind that you rarely ever visit.
Neil Gaiman
