Pinteresting: Saint Anything

This is a (sort of not) regular series I do here on my blog to combine my pinning obsession (come be friends with me!) with my love of books! This weeks pinning obsession: Saint Anything.

I'm a few chapters into this book, and (DUH) I'm pretty into this book. I mean, it's Sarah Dessen, so you know it's going to be amazing because she's just a really great storyteller. But it's also got a different vibe than her other books—one I'm really liking. It seems darker and more real.

Following the life of a girl who's brother has been in and out of rehab, jail, and court rooms, she feels lost, isolated, and invisible. Money is tight after countless lawsuits, so she moves from the private school down to the public school, opening up a whole new world. She stumbles upon a grungy pizza joint, where she meets a family that immediately welcomes her and tries to show her how to be her own person instead of living in the shadows of her family members.

Here's my copy of Saint Anything in the wild! (aka some Instagrams I've taken)

  1. Wow, your collage is really fitting for the book. I love the courthouse one. I picture the restaurant a little differently, but that's how reading goes with everyone having their own ideas. I definitely agree with your opinion about it having a different vibe. I feel like it's bit of a throwback to some of Dessen's older books with its more serious tone, but it is quite dark. I think it may be because she's drawn a bit more on personal experience, but whatever it is I loved this book. I read it in a day because I just couldn't put it down.
