Author: Ramson Riggs

What is it about?

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.

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 were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.


“I used to dream about escaping my ordinary life, but my life was never ordinary. I had simply failed to notice how extraordinary it was.”

Before reading this book I was overwhelmed for it. Just because look at that cover is so cool and Ransom Riggs is Jesse The Reader favorite autor. He’s always telling us to read this book because he loves this story so much.



Anyway, because of that I decided to buy this book . I don’t know why I pictured this book as something super scary and terrifying but I was wrong. This is about childrens with peculiar super powers, something I don’t usually read but it didn’t matter me and I keep reading it. To be honest I can’t tell you too much about this book because I think that less you know about it more you’re gonna enjoy it so I’m only gonna tell you about my thoughts and feelings. I loved the characters. The peculiar childrens are the cutest. I have so much affection for them. I can’t believe their true story. The book has creepy black and white pictures, they’re are helping you to visualize and help you to understand the plot. I think this was a good contribution so points to Ramson for this awesome idea. We have “insta-love”and I didn’t have a problem with that but it’s kinda weird to visualize (only if you read it you’d understand) Also we have a minor villain in here yassss and when we discover who it really is is shocking. I had minnor issues yes, for example: some words I couldn’t really understand (english is not my first language) but I think those words were invented by Ransom, you just have to stick with it, it’s not that hard. Despite that I enjoyed this book so much. It’s not a creepy story. It’s more about friendship and appreciate your family, etc etc. I still need to catch up with the second book “Hollow City” I hope to enjoy it as much as this book<3.

Btw, in case you didn’t know we’re having a movie of this book in september of this year produced by Tim Burton! so what are you waiting for? grab a copy 😛
