So Wednesday night, I started reading "Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children" by Randsom Riggs, and I ended up actually finishing it yesterday. I have loved tons of books these past few years, but I've never quite had this type of love with any other book, as I do with this one.
I don't even know where to begin. This book is just absolutely incredible. After finding out that Tim Burton was directing another interesting movie, I found out it was actually the movie of this book and so I started watching the trailer many many times then decided that maybe I should just read it since the cover alone interested the shit out of me. For some odd reason, in the last five years that this book was first released, I had completely no idea that it even existed until a few months ago. This book has everything and more that screams what I love, how is that even possible?! (Also, to make things even crazier, there's two other books to this story. It's a freaking series!!!!?!!)
"A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.
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."
I don't like to spoil things for others so that's why I won't go into it anymore than that, but that's what the book is pretty much about. This book also has so many incredible quotes that anybody could honestly relate to. The author of this book is crazy good and it's so hard to believe that this was his first book he's ever wrote!
I for sure recommend this book for everyone and if you're interested in reading it before the movie comes out, you still have time! Like I said, I read this book in less than 24 hours but if you're not a fast reader than you have till September 30th; that's when the movie comes out!
