Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

This book is fantastic and easily won a spot on the shelf above my bed for my favorite books.

This book is about a 16 year old boy named Jacob Portman, as he goes on a journey to unravel the mysteries in his Grandpa’s last breath, a monster he saw fueling his adventure. Those words lead him and his father, a failing author, to the island where Grandpa Portman lived during WWII. They spend there days in a hotel while Jacob observes the ruins of Miss Peregrine’s home, the place his Grandpa¬†and other refugees stayed, while his dad goes bird watching. He discovers a group of peculiar children with amazing gifts, that are still alive after all those years, and need his help.

This book has a great plot that would not let me put the book down, and beautiful old photographs that have been minimally adapted. The sequel to this book is called ‘Hollow City’ and is also fantastic. Recommended for ages 13+ due to violence, swearing, and a few kissing scenes.
