Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was the surprise best seller of 2011—an unprecedented mix of YA fantasy and vintage photography that enthralled readers and critics alike. Publishers Weekly called it “an enjoyable, eccentric read, distinguished by well-developed characters, a believable Welsh setting, and some very creepy monsters.”
This second novel begins in 1940, immediately after the first book ended. Having escaped Miss Peregrine’s island by the skin of their teeth, Jacob and his new friends must journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. Along the way, they encounter new allies, a menagerie of peculiar animals, and other unexpected surprises.
Complete with dozens of newly discovered (and thoroughly mesmerizing) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight readers of all ages.
What I’m thinking
I don’t think I can express just how excited I am about this sequel! I recently purchased Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children: The Graphic Novel to read as a refresher to get myself in the right mindset for Hollow City. Thankfully I don’t have that much longer to wait. If you are one of those who has not yet read Miss Peregrine go do it now!!!! You will not be disappointed.
Can’t wait to see what books you are wanting this week?
