Book Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

I’m sure we’ve been hearing tons about Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and now that the movie is coming out soon, I wanted to read the book beforehand. I even got the audio book and it was pretty much one of the best decisions I’ve made because it was REALLY GOOD. I mean, honestly. The narrator was AMAZING and his voice managed to channel out various emotions such as fear and excitement. I was really caught up with this audio book, such that there were times I wouldn’t be paying much attention to what I was doing. Miss Peregrine’s more »

I tried to review it earlier this week actually, but instead I ended up needing to savor it just a bit longer before gathering my thoughts together to move on. When a series ends, and I’ve adored that series enough to go through all of installments within their respective releases, it always hits me like saying goodbye to friends. Not quite gone forever because I know there will be re-reads (and movies), but it can still be emotionally hard. I know I’m not the only reader like this. more »

Book Review: Hollow City

With Library of Souls recently released, I felt I had to do a quick re-read of Hollow City. I had never got around to reviewing it properly back when I first read it, and tbh I mostly scanned the last half of it the first read through anyway due to poor timing choice back during its release. Let me start by saying how absolutely enamored I am by this story overall.

Book Review: Hollow City

I read Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children back when it came out. I had the opportunity to read Hollow City when it came out, but I just couldn’t fit it into my schedule at the time. When I was approached by the publisher again to review it for its paperback release, I accepted because I just had to know where this story was going to go next! I gotta be honest. I liked the book, I did, but not as much as the first. I have several reasons for that: The book was very slow at the start. It more »
