Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I read this book a long time ago before I even had this blog, but I decided to do a review on it, because I just finished the second book in the series, and I didn’t want to do a review on the second book if I didn’t have one on the first.
“As a kid, Jacob formed a special bond with his grandfather over his bizarre tales and photos of levitating girls and invisible boys. Now at 16, he is reeling from the old man’s unexpected death. Then Jacob is given a mysterious letter that propels him on a journey to the remote Welsh island where his grandfather grew up. There, he finds the children from the photographs–alive and well–despite the islanders’ assertion that all were killed decades ago. As Jacob begins to unravel more about his grandfather’s childhood, he suspects he is being trailed by a monster only he can see.”
I actually really liked this book. It was very creepy, and I loved the pictures. I definitely recommend it as a fall/Halloween read. It was very spooky, and I loved it.
5 out of 5 stars
