A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. And 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 who once lived here – one of whom was his own grandfather – were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a desolate island for good reason. And somehow – impossible though it seems – they may still be alive.
When I saw that this book was a buy one get one half price deal in Waterstones I was like “Yep I’ll have that” because I’d seen this book so many times and so many people had recommended it to me!
I read this book around Halloween (ages ago I know) and I honestly think it is a great Halloween read especially if you don’t like really scary books like me. I’m not into horror at all; I will 100% run in the opposite direction.
I really enjoyed this book and I liked the strangeness of it as well. The creatures and the plot were obviously thought out carefully as I felt like I was experiencing all everything that was going on in the book, which is always a plus when reading a book. I love feeling connected
The main thing I found about this book was that there were a lot of creepy photographs which were for me just added to the whole weird but good vibe of the book.
When it came to the end of the book I saw the decsion that was made coming but I didn’t expect it to pan out that way.
