Miss Peregrin’s Home For Peculiar Children – Book Review #39
I bought Miss Peregrin’s Home For Peculiar Children and the two other books in the series, for KayCee. She hasn’t read them yet and I needed a change so I’ve borrowed them!
Miss Peregrin’s Home For Peculiar Children
Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:
A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow-impossible though it seems-they may still be alive. A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.
It was an easy book to read and it kept me wanting to turn the pages which is always a good sign.
I like the vintage style photos of Miss Peregrin and all the peculiar children even though some of them are a bit creepy!
I’ve moved straight on to Hollow City and was pleased to see it started right where this one left off. I sometimes get fed up with having to read parts I already know because the author is doing a recap of the first book for any readers who haven’t read it.
