  • Book Summary:
  • 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
My Thoughts:

This book was a peculiar one (pun totally intended!). I'll be totally honest I am still not sure what exactly happened in it! Ha! It was a good story and written well it just was hard to follow at certain times. I felt at times VERY troubled by the decisions Jacob was faced with. I think that it is totally worth a read, especially if you like eerie or whimsical stories. 

Happy Reading, Sugars
