Waiting On Wednesday: Hollow City (Miss Peregrine #2) by Ransom Riggs

"Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at “Breaking the Spine”, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

What I’m waiting on

Hollow City (Miss Peregrine, #2)
  • Hollow City
  • Ransom Riggs
  • Series: Miss Peregrine's Children
  • Hardcover: 400 pages
  • Publisher: Quirk Books
  • Release Date: January 14, 2014
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.

Is Hollow City on your to read list?
Can’t wait to see what books you are wanting this week?

  8. I'm intrigued by Miss Peregrine. First the cover looks so creepy, i also once made a mistake of browsing through it and saw the pictures inside (shiver) i don't think i'm brave enough to do that again. But on the other hand the reviews are so good about this series, it makes me wonder...
    Great pick! :)
